The first card with Claire's set is from Nordic Winter

Clean & Simple all the way!


This next card was exactly what I saw when I first saw the set - a 1980's winter sweater that I wore to a retreat in the Adirondacks with my church's youth Group. Stamped image and then trimmed out the v neck collar and added the collar detail. Buttons finish the design!


This uses those beautiful fonts from 'Tis the Season

Faint images of snowflakes in the watercolored area (from the incentive set)













The pretty fonts pair so nicely with the designer paper which Gina is releasing this month!


Are you ready for Ian? He was named after my sister's son (who turns two this week)!  They have a mutual love of moose and the Adirondacks! 


I wanted to show that Ian can also be used for love notes or valentines! 


The moose antics continue with other images in the set - these cardinals love to stir up fun!



I made this simple tag with a strip of the designer paper from Gina's set and some fun coloring!



I made sure that Ian was dressed warm - he has ear muffs and can even be dressed in an ugly sweater for the holidays!


Here is a card made with the Holly Jolly Incentive set!


This is also made with the Holly Jolly incentive set - pairs so well with the designer paper from this month's Gina K. release!

With Theresa's Dashing set, I felt a little Krafty!

There is nothing better thank a Clean & Simple set to showcase


Mel's sets are always fun to play with.  I made a simple wreath with the images in her set and added a simple bow with a glue dot! 


This little snowman was fun to color! I feel like he was either preparing for a snowball fight or he was creating a friend to keep him company!

August 2016 Painted Autumn StampTV Kit Inspiration Blog Hop - Day Two


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Painted Autumn StampTV Kit! We hope to inspire you with some beautiful card projects as you hop along to each of the designer’s blogs! Today, we are featuring the second set in the Painted Autumn StampTV Kit.  

Today’s set, we are featuring Give Thanks. In this set, you will find fun and cuddly critters, acorn, leaves and fun sentiments to make the most adorable card projects!  There are so many possibilities with these sets! 


Enjoy the gorgeous inspiration samples from the team and then comment on each blog for your chance to win a $20 Gina K Designs gift certificate! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.

Yesterday, I shared one sample - today I have several! I did a ton of therapeutic stamping this past week getting my first born ready for college! There was a steady stream of best friends coming over to say goodbye! I spent some time stamping for the kids to get snail mail these first few weeks away from home! Nothing like a card from home knowing you are missed! Karen filled out some for friends which I am mailing this week!


I love this pink/white/black combo with the leaf pattern. As you can see in the samples, it was one of my favorite stamps in the kit! Ha ha! The sentiment is from the incentive stamp this month, which I think is now available for purchase. If you have a kid off in college for the first time, you need this stamp set. I am actually having moms come over this week (non-stampers) to make cards for their kids!

Here is another card Karen filled out for her friend away at school!  



The leaf background makes an appearance again! HA HA!  This one with the incentive set for the kit - the black ink pops! This one I made for our swim coach who took the girls out on a team building activity! 



Same leaf set, but made it a wreath in a circular pattern!

 Here is the card I made for Karen to sneak on her desk before I left her dorm room.  I put the 8 page hand-written letter inside the envelope too! You can never tell them enough times how proud you are of them!



I finally did some therapeutic coloring with spectrum noir markers. I will send this card in a few weeks (trying to hold on to the last of the warm weather before everything in the world is pumpkin spice flavored).
