Gina K Designs inspirational hop day two

Welcome, Welcome!  Today I have a sharing a few cards from Gina K’s newest STAMP TV release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  And make sure to check out all the new stamps on the All New page!!


 I LOVE the stamp tv kits- always such great kits!!
My first card uses the adorable penguin...I just adore this image!!  So cute!
And the sentiment was masked off each time to use vertically instead of horizontally.   I have a thing for vertical sentiments, and you don't see them very often...so there's my answer for that! ;)

This image may be tied with the penguin for favorite...Another iconic Christmas image!!  I used shimmery white cardstock, my nestabilities, some bling, and silver string for this one.  Simple but just enough!  Sorry about the shadow from the string-I procrastinated with my photos and it ended up being too dark!!  



  thanks for stopping by- Make sure to check out the rest of the team today as well!
