Christmas Inspiration Mosaic


IM hop

Welcome to our Gina K. Designs Inspiration Mosaic blog hop!!  Have you seen ALL the wonderful creations using this new set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger!?  My word – HER creations alone are more than enough, but the other ladies who have been creating with this set since its release have REALLY brought it!! I am amazed!!! 

I have a pretty straight-forward Christmas card to share with you using it, along with Green Apple cardstock newly released by Gina K. and Rocket Red.  I embossed the mosaic with silver detail embossing powder as well as the poinsettia & leaves (from a Year of Flowers).  I then sponged a little of my kiwi kiss ink in some of the mosaics and stamped a greeting ‘holiday blessings (from Say it With Flowers).  I apologize for the bad photo, I missed an opportunity for an outside shot because it unexpectedly started raining here (and when I go to adjust the levels in my photo editing software, it freezes on me – not sure why but it’s pretty frustrating to say the least!)  I hope you can still get the idea this card is simple yet very elegant. 

Enjoy the rest of the inspirational hop at Gina K’s blog, Melanie’s blog as well as her guest designers: Jennie Harper, Tina Gilliland, Linda Payne, and Jenny Charboneau
