Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 2: Celebrate the Season & Home Is


celebrate the season

So glad you’ve joined us for our 2nd day of inspiration hops for the Gina K release!  My first card uses Theresa’s new set Celebrate the Season which has 2 branches (or trees) and plenty of accessories to set the ‘season’ you desire on your projects.  I chose to use the owl, leaf and pumpkin for a fall card. 

 

Here is a picture of the set you will get when you purchase Celebrate the Season.  Doesn’t it look like fun?  I look forward to making a card set with all the seasons to give as a  gift.  

 

 

sketch challenge

My next card showcases Tami’s new set, Home Is and it’s the card I used for the release party sketch challenge I’m hosting.  I hope you will play along for a chance to win a free stamp set!  All the details are in the thread at StampTV. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you hop through the designer’s blogs, make sure you leave comments on each one for a chance to win a free stamp set of your choice valued up to $24.95!
