A Winner, A Tin and A nother Give Away!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday. Random.Cara picked number 220 as the winner of yesterday's blog candy--the Gina K Designs set of your choice. Congratulations to Michelle (mla1111) who said... "Thanks for the opportunity to win!"
Please email me the stamp set of your choice (valued at $19.95 or less) and your address!

Today I wanted to share this little tin I created for the Gina K Release. I uses the fun new set called Funky Christmas. The images in this set are darling and totally make me giggle!


REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION

I chose the adorable reindeer image from the Funky Christmas set and put a hand cut heart in his hands instead of the bow. I lined the bottom of the panel with a scallop created by the Threading Water Punch and then threaded some dark hemp through the holes. All of this made the perfect framing for the fun sentiment from the Seasonal Sayings set!

Wouldn't this be a cute way to present a gift card this holiday season?!

Materials used: Stamps-Funky Christmas (Gina K Designs); ink-Memento tuxedo black; real red and olive SU markers; Copic Markers; cardstock-vanilla, red; tin (Gina K Designs); Designer paper-St Nick Collection (Making Memories); Fiskars Threading Water punch; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); heart punch (Creative Memories); hemp (Hobby Lobby); dimensionals (SU!).

Speaking of gifts and giving....Did you happen to see this blog post by Jody Morrow? She raves about the new Pure Luxury Cardstock from Gina K Designs. I told ya'll it was awesome---but because there still may be a few doubters---one person will be chosen randomly from the comments on this post to receive 10 (5.5 by 8.5") sheets of the 120 lb. Pure Luxury Cardstock (enough to make 10 single layer cards) AND the Pure Luxury Holiday Assortment of ribbon. Good stuff!!! These are a few of my personal favorites that I wanted to share with one of you!

Leave a comment on this post. Random.Cara will pick a lucky winner tomorrow (Saturday) at 6:00 p.m. CST! Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you so much for the chance to win the cardstock, I read the comparison and was excited. When you have a lot of layers you don't get the support needed by other white paper. Thank you for all your inspiration and chances to win.

Wow Cammie, you are super generous. I love the idea of Gina's 120lb cardstock, but I have sooooo much Whisper White, and PTI White right now that I have to use some of them up before I can justify buying any more. If I win it though.... ;)

DeniseLynn said...

Wow this is some holiday spirit you've got: What fabulous prizes you're giving away! Your tin is great. I always want my gifts to be wrapped so sweetly; I feel the unwrapping should be part of the whole experience and yet I tend to over think it and make it harder than it needs to be. Yours is simple and sweet - Perfect! Thanks for sharing and I hope you don't mind if I "case" it. *wink*
