Inspiration Hop, Day 3: Fruit of the Season StampTV Kit

Good morning! Welcome back to our final day of hops! Today we are featuring the Fruit of the Season StampTV kit and the new Incentive set, Perfect Pair. Once again, we are giving away a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs store! Each comment you leave on today's hop is a chance to win! We love hearing from you! Check the StampTV forum where winners will be announced a few days after the hops. Good luck! 


I used GKD Prickly Pear for stamping the new Elegant Script background and large floral images, and then sponged the edges with the Prickly Pear and Fresh Asparagus ink. Don't you love the glow? So rich!   Perfect for the pears, colored with Spectrum Noir markers DG, DG3, GB11, GB9. Shadow is BG3. Cardstock is Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx.


I used the pears again (because I love pears) but added the bold holly in Fresh Asparagus. I stamped the bird at the top so it would look like he was perching on the greeting mat I added. Love a simple white card base to really focus on the gorgeous images!



Such beautiful snowflakes in this kit!  I love the coloring possibilities, so I stamped the largest one in Jet Black Amalgam and then smaller ones in Moonlit Fog to add interest but not take away from my focal point.  Just a few hits of red and blue to make some of the details pop! I added some Nuvo Drops sprinkled with the GKD Frozen Glitter for sparkle.

I shared another card with the incentive set on Monday, but here is one more! I love featuring these cups in my Inspiration Mosaic's frame!  After stamping and coloring those, I used some post it notes to mask off other portions of the frame to ad the cute beans in Warm Cocoa ink. Base is GKD Kraft (always a must with coffee cards!!) This cute set is free with a purchase of $75 or more before shipping for a limited time.  Shop all the new products for this release here: What's New. Thanks for hopping with us this week!  More inspiration from the team follows:
