Hello everyone and welcome. Today I'm sharing some Christmas card ideas using the Gina K Designs Home for the Holidays StampTV Kit as part of the Gina K Designs and Cardmaker Magazine Blog Hop. This is my first time creating with products from Gina K and I must say I absolutely love them! The Kit comes with 4 clear stamp sets, coordinating dies, a 6x6 patterned paper pack, and 24 sheets of cardstock. Other than ink, adhesive and envelopes, you have everything you need to create all your Christmas cards. However, what really made me smile with glee was that all of this comes in a fabulous plastic storage box - which totally makes this organization and storage lover super happy!
I was immediately drawn to the adorable Santa and Snowman stamps in the Christmas Magic stamp set. I stamped, die cut and then colored them with my Prismacolor pencils. To create the snow hill, I used a fun technique for Faux Stitching that I learned from watching one of the fabulous StampTV videos.
I then stamped the snowflakes onto a piece Turquoise Sea cardstock with Versamark. Once it was dry, I drew over them with a Stardust Gelly Roll Pen to add a touch of shine. I also stamped the sentiment with Versamark, but I heat embossed it with white embossing powder to help it stand out a bit more. I then adhered the die cuts onto the piece with double sided foam tape and attached it to the front of the card.
On my second card, I went a little more simple and didn't do any coloring. I used the Christmas Greenery Stamp set to create a festive background by stamping some of the flowers and leaves onto a piece of Ivory cardstock with various colors of ink.
I then stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink onto the Turquoise Sea cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
Christmas will be here before we know it and thanks to the Home for the Holidays Kit from Gina K Designs, I've got a great start on making my Christmas cards this year.
