Gina K Designs Inspiration Blog Hop Day 2

Hello! Welcome to another day of inspiration from the Gina K Design team.  Today, the design team is showing their projects using the new releases-- Deck the Halls, Simple Snowflakes and Mistletoe Memories.


Be prepared to be inspired as you check out all the stops on this hop.  Make sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops.

Here are my projects for today: 
My first card features Simple Snowflakes.  I love this set. Classic and timeless.  My first card uses the sentiment (which I adore) and the fun circle snowflake.  I went more vintage with this one because I think this set is so graphic it is good to see it used another way. (PS...graphic card coming up!):
Next, is a card using Mistletoe Memories.  I love this set because the elements in it allow you to make a zillion different designs.  I used the large MERRY stamp on the label and the mistletoe and the fun text border (which I foresee using a ton!): 

The next  card uses Deck the Halls.  The fun ornaments in this set are so wonderfully designed.  I LOVE Gina's card that she did with this set for her Stamp TV video and I had to put that out of my head before I could think of another idea! (If you didn't see it, you should check it out on Stamp TV!)
Anyway, I decided to make the ornament on this card dimensional.  I stamped three of the same ornament design and then cut them out.  Then, I used my Scor-Pal to fold them in half so I could adhere them together before adding them to the card.  I stamped the sentiment and matted it on a label:

Finally, I have one more quick card using Simple Snowflakes and the border text from Mistletoe Memories:
That's it for me today....
