Members Blog Hop


Good morning! Welcome to my blog as we have our first members blog hop! I love Christmas and love Christmas stamps. The illustrators at Gina K Designs sure came out with some wonderful sets! I love them all!!
By now a lot of you know I love to combine these sets. In the top card I used Rupa Shevde new set "Winter Friends" an older set of her's " The Magic of Christmas" and Melanie Muenchinger's newest set " Festive Frame" for the sentiment. I used bashful blue to sponge in the background embossed with Vivid! in brick. Colored with copic's. The DP is Basic grey. I also used liquid applique, pop-dots, and punched out ghost snowflakes by daughter Brenda sent to me. I meant to put the gifts behind her but in my rush to finish I forgot! lol Next time I will.

In the next card, I also used Rupa's set " Winter Friends", Melanie's " Festive Frame" and also used other Gina K set " Autumn Beauty " by Theresa Momber. I just had to put that bird on that mailbox! All images were embossed with white EP, on Gina K pure luxury card stock Cranberry tart. and white. The DP is Basic Grey. ribbon is from Gina's .
Most of the supplies and all stamps were purchased at Gina K. Designs and are available.

Thanks for joining in the hop and be sure to check out the other blogs for some super wonderful cards! Here is the link to Gina's blog.
