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.

My first card features Claire's Nordic Winter Stamp Set.  I loved using the GKD Red Velvet ink on the GKD Kraft Card stock.  Thanks to my Misti I was able to line up all the different stamps to get these lined up.


My second card features Noel stamp set also illustrated by Claire.  I love this set, the script is so beautiful and I love the large letters.  The sentiments are perfect by themselves!  I used distress inks to create the background.  I spritz some water to get the white dots.  Finished the card with some sparkled enamel dots.  The base of the card is Jelly Bean Green.



My next card I am featuring is another one of Claire's called Compliments of the Season stamp Set. There are nine sentiments and they are all in different fonts and sizes, just perfect for cardmaking, making tags and scrapbooking. The design paper is from the Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit called Home for the Holidays. I stamped the sentiment with GKD Black Onyx. Finished it off by adding some enamel dots.  The base of the card is GKD card stock Turquoise Sea.



My last card I am featuring is illustrated by Beth Silaika called Ian Moose Stamp Set. I die cut two circles, and stamped the snowflakes from the Ian Moose for my background. I colored the moose with copics and popped him up on the circle. The tree is adhered to the circle. The design paper is from the Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit called Home for the Holidays. The base of the card is GKD Red Velvet (my favorite color!).
