A Very Merry Blog Hop

Hi everyone! My parents just got in to town to visit so I have to keep this short and sweet.

Tonight, the Gina K team and guests are showing their creations using Theresa's beautiful new set A Very Merry Christmas. The illustrations in this set are just stunning---you can pretty much stamp the images and go....or you can have fun coloring all the amazing detail.

Here is my card I created: The bells were stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. I used some Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly designer paper in the background. The card base is Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock. I used some of the beautiful red holiday ribbon to finish this card. All edges are inked with vintage photo distress ink (Ranger).

For even more ideas with Theresa Momber's A Very Merry Christmas stamp set, visit her blog link below as well as the GinaK Idea Center here: A Very Merry Christmas. Theresa's tip sheet has been added to the Idea Center as a PDF so you can print out her tips and suggestions for a handy reference tool. We've also included her Copic coloring links too.

Here's all the Designer's Blog Links to check out tonight:
