Gina K October release inspiration blog hop: Day 2

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop were we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in October! As you hop through the blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each because we will choose a few random commenters and they will win a grab bag that could have anything from stamps to paper to embellishments!! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

Today we are spotlighting 3 sets:
Deck the Halls, Illustrated by Beth
Simple Snowflakes, Illustrated by Tami
Mistletoe Memories, Illustrated by Becky
I have to say, I LOVE all these sets!  Man, we have some talented designers. I was so inspired that I made a couple cards with each set, I will show a card today and later this week, I will show the rest.  My first card uses Deck the Halls.  I love the ornament designs and all the possibilities this set has.  I went very CAS with this one.  I stamped the ornament in red ink and the ornament topper was embossed with silver EP.  A couple silver pearls and some cord completes this one.
Next up, is my card using Simple Snowflakes.  I have to say, I am a sucker for all things snowflake AND circles, so this set is a match made in heaven!!   I couldn't resist making a circle card with this one.  I embossed the snowflake images with white EP, which turned out really cool on the turquoise cardstock.  The pattern paper is from Gina's Blizzard pack.
Lastly, my card using Mistletoe Memories.  I love the bold sentiments and amazing mistletoe branch combos Becky desinged.  Again, I went with the silver pearls and cord and the pattern paper on this card is from Gina's Winter Whimsy.

Don't forget, all the new stamp sets are now offered in CLEAR which is what I linked.  But if you prefer rubber, click on the What's New Section and you will see both options.
Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:

 Thanks for stopping by and here are a couple close up pictures.  Enjoy the hop!
