Gina K. Designs and CardMaker Blog Hop


Hello My Wednesday Friends!

All of us at Gina K. Designs are feeling pretty special today because the lovely folks at CardMaker Magazine invited us to play along on their blog hop.

Toward the end of my post I will link to the next blog on the hop.  I can't wait for you to see all the goodness heading your way - both from my teammates and the team from CardMaker Magazine.

During the hop we are showcasing the newest Gina K. Designs StampTV kit, Home for the Holidays.  Take a look at what you get when you purchase this jam packed kit:
 

As you can see, I used that adorable house as the focal point for my card.  I used the matching die to cut it out perfectly and then colored it with Copic markers.  I built up my background with some mountains and I added some trees from another new set called Dashing.  I added plenty of snow, a fun snowflake and some sequins to finish my card.

I was just in a red/black/grey mood, so I decided to make another card to share.  This time I used that adorable snowman stamp and die from the kit.  I placed him on a little tag cut with my Silhouette Cameo and added some circles behind him.


Speaking of behind him....I could not resist using another new stamp set for my background.  You just have to take a look at it.  It is called Nordic Winter.  Claire Brennan is the designer of this set and also my inspiration for the background.  I fell in love with some samples she made like this last month.  Click right here if you'd like to see another card I made with this precious square stamp.  You will be surprised by the color combo I think.

As promised I'll be sending you on to your next blog.  You will be amazed what the wonderful Chris Dayton has in store for you.

Happy Hopping!

Susie
