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:

Today I am sharing a few projects made with Theresa Momber's gorgeous set, Framescapes - Winter Trees.  This is such a versatile set with a large framed landscaped image and several sentiment and additions.  

I have focused on the beautiful framed landscape image today.  
I have created winter scenes in these first two cards.


heat embossed the image on this card in white on In the Navy cardstock.  I added white sponged ink and Prismacolor pencil for snow, and added snowflakes in the sky with a white gel pen.


In this example I heat embossed with black, also adding the snow with white pigment ink and Prismacolor pencil.

This scene can be used in all seasons.  Below I am sharing a video on how I watercolor painted this summer sunset card.







Melanie Meunchinger has also released a beautiful follow up set to her popular Holiday Frame from the October release.  Holiday Frame Fillers allows you to create beautiful cards for any season or occasion.

I have used the Holiday Frame as a base for my faux barn wood door, and the Holiday Frame Fillers to create a congratulations card.


And again, below with a military welcome card.

The Holiday Frame Fillers now allows you to make cards for so many seasons and occasions!
