Gina K Designs – October Inspiration Blog Hop – Day 3


October 2016 – Ian Moose and Claire’s sets
Inspiration Blog Hop - Day Three


The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit and a number of gorgeous stamp sets by our illustrator team! 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 Beth Silaika’s new “Ian Moose” stamp set and Claire Brennan’s new stamp sets: Nordic Winter, ‘Tis the Season, Festive Foliage and Compliments of the Season. Beth’s set, “Ian Moose” is the most adorable moose with cute accompanying images and fun sentiments! Claire’s stamp sets are the best in classic and traditional stamps celebrating this holiday season!   




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.


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!
