Gina K. Designs Inspiration Hop Day #1.........Holiday Basket and Under The Weather!!!

Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net Smiley from millan.net

It's September!!!!  Yes...that means already time to get crafty with some Christmas ideas!!!!  Melanie's new stamp set, Holiday Baskets, complements many of her other sets.



Stamps: Holiday Baskets
Paper: Pure Luxury Lipstick Red, White; Basic Grey Jovial
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
Accessories: Swiss Dots EF, Pearls, Stickles, Spellbinders Blossom 1 Nesties

This card is just a simple 4x4 gift card with a Spellbinders Blossom 1 Nestie window.  The poinsettias and the dp do all the work!!  LOL  I just colored the poinsettias with Copics and then used some of my favorite Basic Grey Jovial dp!!  Pure Luxury Lipstick Red matches the dp perfectly!  I used the next size smaller Nestie for the sentiment inside so that the dp would also show up when the card is closed.

Now what better way to cheer someone up than with this little bear from Rupa's new set, Under The Weather.



Stamps: Under The Weather
Paper: Pure Luxury White, Chocolate; Kaisercraft Hunt & Gather dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
Accessories: Pearls, Ribbon

I thought I'd make a get well card for a little boy since I rarely have those on hand.  I used some pearls for his little eyes and colored him so he'd look a bit more like a well-loved teddy bear! ;)  I hope it brings a little guy a smile!!!

The design team has created a fabulous blog hop for you and as you hop along, make sure you leave comments along the way because we are going to choose two lucky winners who will each win a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Sky blue and chocolate brown is my favorite color combination so you KNOW I love your get well soon teddy bear card (beautifully colored BTW) and I love your unique approach to your holiday card with the entire background embossed like that and the sentiment taking center stage, accented with that pretty Jovial Basic Grey paper. Love-Lee indeed! ;)
