Gina K. Designs & CardMaker Blog Hop!

Hello! Today several designers from the Gina K. team are joining up with the Cardmaker Blog Design team to showcase the newest StampTV Kit from Gina K. Designs, Home for the Holidays!  I am excited to participate and eager to see what everyone has done with the fabulous goodies in this kit!
Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit

I made two cards today, both using the kit's "Music Background" stamp and the "Holiday Greenery" set with it s gorgeous trees, elemental winter foliage and greetings!  I stamped my Holiday Frame stamp on each Kraft card base first in Gina K. Fresh Asparagus ink to create the two sketches, and then added the other stamped elements.  Music was reverse masked into the frame with GKD Kraft ink. All other details are stamped in GKD Black Onyx, Faded Brick, and Charcoal Brown.

White gel pen accents for the snow, wreath highlights and drop shadow on the fun hand-lettered sentiments make everything pop!

Love this one especially! (I *might* be persuaded to do a video next week...) ;)

Next stop on the hop is Daniela Dobson! (Full link list is on the Cardmaker Blog)

Fun addition, breaking news! After you finish the hop,  Gina K is releasing a brand spanking new Incentive with $75 purchase! It's called Handmade a picture of the set:

Oops!! Two Videos...

Good morning! I forgot to blog my "tumbling" snowman video from before, I think partly because I posted it and then it sold out before Gina even got to broadcast, so that is at the bottom of this post.  Today I also have a NEW video I've been saving, on how to make 2 cards with one sheet of white cardstock and 1 piece of 6 by 6 patterned paper. These big ornaments create a lot of look with very little time and effort! Please enjoy both videos today, if you have not yet seen!
