Blog Hop for "Hip to be Square"


Hello and welcome to Melanie Muenchinger's blog hop for her newest stamp set "Hip to be Square" I was pleased to be included in the blog hop as I love this set and hope to be able to show it off.
The first card (the one on top) I used the window stamp on acetate using black StazOn. Then I stamped the ornaments, colored them and then embossed. I sponged with SU going gray on Gina K Pure luxury white card stock. I then stamped the pine limbs. I added Stickles and glitter. I put it all on Red rocket cardstock.
Supplies: copic's, stickles, glitter, stazon, acetate and gold pen
Stamps: Hip to be square, Very merry Christmas, The magic of Christmas and Winter Foliage. All stamp set are available at Gina K. Designs.

In my next card I used stamps from "Hip to be Square" to make my ornaments.I stamped them and colored them with copic's used a gold pen on the hanger part and embossed and cut them out. Then using gold cord attached them to my card. The sentiment is from "Very Merry Christmas" from Gina K. Designs.
Supplies: Gold cord, copic's, Vivid Red ink pad, gold brads and card stock is from Gina K.
This is a fantastic stamp set and I have lots of idea's for this set and I highly recommend it.
