A Very Merry Blog Hop

I am so excited to share with you some cards I made using Theresa's latest stamp set, A Very Merry Christmas from Gina K Designs. This is an outstanding Christmas set, the fireplace is perfect for making a cozy Christmas scene. In my first card I stamped the fireplace without the window so that I could place a tree that I had cut out to the left of the fireplace. The wreath and the holly are stickers from Michael's. I also made this for Friday's pot luck challenge on StampTV to make a kick stand card.


For this card I stamped the bells and colored them.  Next I went over the whole image with a versamark pen and then clear embossed the image.  After that I sponged the background to a soft yellow with so saffron and apricot appeal.  The card base has clear embossed snowflakes.  It is a bit hard to tell in the photo, but below the sentiment are some gold pearls. This card is also for Whimsy Stamps Challenge to get punchy, to use punches or dies.




Finally I made this little tag.

All of the papers and ribbons are from Gina K Designs, StampTV Kit Holiday Cheer.

I would like to thank Theresa for asking me again to join in on her hop.
