Gina K Designs October Release | Illustrator Blog Hop Day 1

Hello Friends and welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K Designs October Release! This release went live last week and all of the new stamps we'll be sharing today and tomorrow are currently available in the Gina K Designs store. Now grab a cup of something yummy and settle in for some wonderful inspiration from the Gina K Design Team. And before you leave, make sure to enter for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate. All of the details on how to win are down below.

Season's Greetings Christmas Card | Fabulous Holiday Labels Stamp Set


The first set we're sharing today is called Fabulous Holiday Labels. This set was illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger and it coordinates with the following stamp sets: Fabulous Frame, Fabulous Frame Fillers, Fabulous Holiday Fillers, Holiday Frame, Fabulous Rose Frame, Pretty Patterns and Pretty Patterns 2. It also coordinates with her Fabulous Label Die Set. So many creative possibilities exist when you mix and match all of these sets!


To create my card, I used the Fabulous Label die set and cut out a label from white cardstock. I then stamped the label image from the Fabulous Rose Frame and filled in the ends using the chevron stamps from the Fabulous Holiday Labels. Next, I die cut the oval shape from the Fabulous Label die set and stamped the holly berry images and sentiment using the Fabulous Holiday Labels. This set is so much fun to mix and match and the options for creating your own design are unlimited!


Peace On Earth Christmas Card | Peaceful Holiday Stamp Set


The second set we're featuring today is the Peaceful Holiday stamp set by Theresa Momber. This set is perfect for creating a variety of "peaceful" holiday scenes. I immediately fell in love with the dove silhouette and stamped it and the "Peace On Earth" sentiment and embossed them with gold embossing powder.


Both of these images were stamped on to a die cut rectangle created using the Double Stitched and Single Stitched Rectangle Dies. To create the beautiful gold foiled background, I used one of the new Gina K Designs Foil Mates Backgrounds called Ornamental Holiday. I'm seriously loving this card and the clean and elegant design. I'm pretty sure this will be a card that will be made several more times as one of my Christmas cards this year!
