Gina K October release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs October Release Inspiration Blog hop!  Today we are spotlighting the fabulous Stamp TV kit, Wishing You Joy!  This is such a FUN kit, super cute images and sentiments.  Cute, right?
My first card uses the cutie snowman image and snowflake images.  How fun is this little guy's hat???  Both of my cards use the pattern paper from Echo Park's, Season's Greetings 6x6 pad (I told you it was my favie).  This one only uses 2 small strips, I let the stamps do the talking on this card!!  I used 1/4" Scor-Tape to adhere the ribbon ruffle, and scored the cardstock so my panel would adhere flat.
Next up is the cute penguin!  OMGosh, I am in love this this little guy.  I wasn't sure how to color him, so I just outlined him with the C1 copic marker and left it there.  I used the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches blog for this card.
For even more samples of this kit, you can visit the GKD Design Team blogs listed below.  Make sure you leave a comment here and on each of their blogs because Gina is going to draw two randomly chosen winners from all of the blog comments, and each will get a stamp set of their choice valued at up to $24.95!  Gina will announce the winners on her blog tomorrow.
 Thanks for stopping by!  I will leave you with a couple close up pictures.  Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the last day of the inspiration hop!
