Sparkling Christmas StampTV kit Inspiration Hop

Welcome to the fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop with Gina K's Design Team! This blog hop is for the brand spanking new StampTV Kit, Sparkling Christmas. The colors in this kit include: edible eggplant, fresh asparagus, prickly pear, cherry red, lovely lavender and white! There are some great designer paper options and the super fun snowflake dies! 



Here are the Monthly Incentive Stamps!

Today, Gina, along with the Cast and Crew, will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a  random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop.


Card 1:
Would you like to see some of those "Incentives" in action? I used the 3D foam snowflakes and Snowflake sequins along with a sparkle button from my collection on this first card. Simply place the foam snowflake on your card and add any other embellishment you want (I added a light blue sparkle button to the center of the snowflake). Then you simply sprinkle it with glitter. I stamped the sentiment from the kit in white and added more glitter (the white ink grabs the glitter!) The base is edible eggplant! 








Card 2:
The great thing about the kit is you have the perfect base colors to get paired with the designer paper.  I used the tree paper along with the fresh asparagus and cherry red.  I used white ink on the punched circle!





Card 3:
The next two cards are done with white and kraft. This first one has a splash of red, which just POPS! I stamped the tree images along the bottom, then took a wet watercolor brush (almost drippy wet) and picked up the white color left on the stamp.  A couple of flicks of the brush and it created a nice snow effect. I doused the wet white ink trees and droplets with glitter.  I stamped the sentiment on white with cherry red ink. (little secret, I tried to stamp it right on the card, but it smeared when the ink hit the glitter. instead of tossing the card, I simply added a small white sentiment block. YES~! Card saved!). I love the hint of red in the bakers twine! 



Card 4:
When you have another half of the card cut, why not make another white and kraft card. I wanted to make a blizzard background. There are a few cute snowflakes in the kit, so I stamped them all over the background and then again, wet my watercolor brush and picked up the white from the stamps.  I flicked the water to create spots which really filled in the blank spaces. A sprinkle of glitter and boom - blizzard effect! I stamped the sentiment in kraft ink on the white card stock. I used a piece of white velvet ric arc under the sentiment and then tied on a piece of rustic twine.

  66. Your Glittered Snowflake is very achieveable, although I am not quite sure about the Edible Eggplant background, I do like purple, but it is showing as “not quite black” on my screen, so I think I need to see this one in person. Your Merry Christmas Trees are also very achieveable. I like the stamped and / or colored trees that are on so many other cards – but I know that I can trim a piece of paper and attach it to a card base!!! I do like your white trees, and snowflakes, on Kraft paper, but I am not sure that mine would look as good. I do like the way you “rescued” your White Trees on Kraft, and think that it looks at least as good as what you originally had in mind.
