To see who won, check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. Ready for some inspiration? Here is the project I have created for today’s hop:

This emboss resist card features the snowflakes from Peaceful Holidays.  I embossed them on watercolor paper and then used watercolors to create the background. The sentiment is stamped on black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. 


The background of main image is created with topics on glossy paper. The peace dove and sentiment was stamped in dark chocolate. 



The Fabulous Holiday Labels set was fun to work with. I used the Merry Christmas sentiment and the holly leaves from Mel's set. I used the white pop dots and some chunky red glitter to create the berries. I fussy cut out the leaves and attached them next to the berries. 
The second card uses kraft base with some fussy cut, embossed snow. I stamped the snowflakes with white ink and the sentiment and reindeer with dark chocolate. 



Don’t forget to pop over to the Gina K Designs Store and check out the entire stamp and die set as well as all of the new stamp sets by the illustrators from this month in the “What’s New” section at (linking to the Gina K Designs Store
