Day 2: Snowbirds and A Very Merry Christmas

Good morning and welcome to our second day of our November hops. Today we are showcasing Snow Birds and A Very Merry Christmas stamp sets. Be sure to comment as you hop through because we will be giving away a $50 gift certificate for Gina K. shopping. Each comment in one entry, so the more you leave the more chances you have to win.  Winner will be chosen a few days after the hop and announced on StampTV. Good luck!

Emily's greetings and lettering are wonderful in this set.  I stamped the deck the halls image in Red Velvet and embossed the ornament topper with Versamark and gold powder. I dusted off some decorative edge scallop scissors I have to make the border and mat, then mounted on Pure Luxury Gold metallic cardstock and a White base.  I'm out of red bakers twine so I made my own with a red alcohol marker on jute to complete the design.

I made two cards with Alicia's Snow Birds 
. Here I did simple coloring with alcohol markers on the titmouse.  Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Red Velvet and Moonlit Fog.

I hadn't heard this quote before, and I like it very much. After stamping the feather in Jet Black Amalgam on White, I stamped it again on Red Velvet cardstock. I hand cut a little heart from the stamped feather to pop up on a foam square over the first feather. Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Red Velvet and Kraft.

Day 1: Reason to Celebrate and Old Fashioned Christmas


Good morning, friends, and welcome to the first day of our November Inspiration hops. Today we are showcasing Reason to Celebrate and Old Fashioned Christmas stamp sets. Be sure to comment as you hop through because we will be giving away a $50 gift certificate for Gina K. shopping. Each comment in one entry, so the more you leave the more chances you have to win.  Winner will be chosen a few days after the hop and announced on StampTV. 
Good luck!

Many of these tiny Reason to Celebrate elements reminded of the sweet pastel crib sheets, burp cloths and onesies, so I decided to make a pattern on a large block with several images that I could stamp just a couple times in GKD Powder Blue ink to make the background.  I picked some pale alcohol markers to add just a little more color. I used a Scor-Buddy to score some diagonal lines around them for a quilted effect. The die cut tag was made with one of the Decorative Tag dies and tied with jute. Congrats is stamped in Dark Chocolate.
Here is a card I made with Hannah's mistletoe from Old Fashioned Christmas and a greeting from Emily's A Very Merry Christmas set, which we will be showcasing tomorrow.  It nests perfectly around this mistletoe. Card stock is GKD Pure Luxury White and Red Velvet.
The car was fun to color.  I wanted to keep it really graphic and simple using a red, gray, and just a bit of tan (for some brown paper packages) to match the Kraft cardbase.  Car is matted on Pure Luxury Slate cardstock and the background is a Large Snowflakes Foil Mate foiled with Red Velvet Fancy Foil I had left over from another project.

You can find both sets and all the other new products here.



Let's go see what the rest of the design team has with these sets:
