Welcome to day 2 of our Inspiration Hop with the Gina K Designs team! Our first set today is Theresa Momber's "Celebrate the Season". This set has nature elements for almost every occasion, I had to start with this beautiful branch and some berries for clean and simple, but easy and elegant, Christmas card you can mass produce, with very minimal supplies! :)I used two markers, Memento Rich Cocoa for the branches and Rich Cocoa and Lady Bug for the berry bunches and the sentiment. TIP: Ink with the red first and add the brown second before stamping to avoid getting the tip of the red muddy. Then I added some Sakura Glaze pen over the berries for dimension, Star Dust Stickles for heaps of frost in the curves of the branches, and a single rhinestone to emphasize the sentiment. All three of these "embellishments" are very inexpensive and give you a lot of mileage and pizazz on your holiday cards!
Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Chocolate Brown, I chose to have just a small reveal of the brown to mimic the branches and I always love a big expanse of white on Christmas cards (just me wishing we had snow covered yards here in Texas!) :)
The next set we have today is "Home Is" from Tami Mayberry, honoring all things home and filled with greetings and images to for welcome, we've moved cards, invitations, etc. I'm sure you will see lots of card using the house today, but when I first saw this sun I immediately thought of the little medallions I saw in a paper flower making set and decided to make a few of my own. :) I stamped the sun three times onto Echo Park "Walk in the Park" paper , added a little Copic orange, and punched them out with a 1" circle punch. Next I cut some long stripes on DP about 1 inch wide with decorative scissors and pleated. I attached the ends together with Scor-Tape to form a tube and pulled out the edges to flatten it.

I put a large piece of adhesive foam on the back to hold it together and on top to hold down the punched sun.
I left out the petal part from the third sun to go with the "Missing you". Card base is Pure Luxury Sweet Mango.
