The Cast and Crew for Gina K Designs welcomes you to another fabulous blog hop celebrating the new stamp release for December 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 the stamp sets by Beth Silaika and Claire Brennan.

These stamp sets are so fun and versatile! You will be able to create amazing card projects using each individual set or by combining the images and sentiments from multiple sets from this release. Have fun and be creative!





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. Ready for some inspiration? Here are a few of the projects I have created for today’s hop:

This is a fun card using the Toucan from Beth's Xavier Zebra set.  My toucan is colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The leaf is stamped in Versamark on a Faded Brick card base.  The gold edge of the white piece is just dipped in Versamark and heat embossed with gold.


Xavier the Zebra is such a cute little guy.  Here I just added a tiny bit of shading with a gray Copic Marker and added him to my embossed patterned Wild Lilac card panel.




For this Half Pint Heroine card, I finally opened the pack of Copper Metallic card stock that I bought in October.  That shimmer is so pretty.  My little girl is stamped on a white panel and colored with Copic markers.  I carried the copper cardstock inside the card, and finished the sentiment with a flexible mirror that I had in my stash of supplies.  Loved the sentiment, and knew just what little girl needed to see herself as amazing.




In this card, I also used the Once upon a time sentiment with the large elephant image.  This card is also colored with Copic markers.


Obviously, I love to color.  And the fun images from Half Pint Hero give lots of opportunity!
This party invite uses all the face options in the "Polaroid" photo.  The whole "photo" was covered with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and heat embossed to give it the shiny gloss.  



My final card is sponged with Ocean Mist, Blue Lagoon and Turquoise Sea inks.  The submarine is colored with warm gray Copics and covered with a clear Spectrum sparkle pen.  Recognize the coral and the aquatic plants?  I cheated.  I used a few of the addition images from Theresa's new Framescape Winter Trees set that we featured yesterday.  They are embossed with some crazy neon embossing powders that I found in my drawer.  But the neon makes perfect coral to complete the scene!
