Gina K Designs October Inspiration Blog Hop Day Three

Hello! Welcome!

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, Noel, 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.

Today I have a clean and simple card that I made with Claire Brennan's set, Festive Foliage.






This is just a very simple design using the mistletoe image stamped in Memento and quickly colored with Copic Markers.  I love all the white space, and the Red Velvet sentiment really shines.


Perhaps I had mistletoe on the brain, because my next card uses the mistletoe sentiment from Beth Silaika's Ian Moose stamp set along with the cute little moose.



I stamped this adorable little Moose and sentiment on a square of 90# watercolor paper with Versafine ink and colored him with Zig Clean Color Realbrush markers.  The pretty patterned papers are from the Home for the Holidays Stamp TV kit, and are trimmed and accented with Jelly Bean green, Turquoise Sea and White card stock.
