Gina K October release inspiration blog hop: Day 3

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to the final day 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 2 sets:
Merry Little Christmas Stamp TV Kit -yes, there are TWO stamp sets in the kit this month!
Holiday Tags (this is the One Free with 3, meaning this set is free when you purchase 3 or more stamp sets)
First up is my card using the darling snowman image from the Merry Little Christmas kit.  Love this guy!  Isn't it cool how the sentiment is swirled around in his body?  You may also notice that the background on this card was made using the words background stamp from Mistletoe Memories.  I stamped it repeatedly in Versamark and embossed it with white EP.  The sentiment and snowflake I used on the tag are from Holiday Tags.
Next is a pretty simple card using the tag and tiny penguin image from the Holiday Tags set.  I love how these tiny images coordinate with last year's set, Wishing You Joy.  The pattern paper I used is from Gina's Merry Little Christmas pack.  This paper can be bought by itself, or comes as part of the kit.
You can see the larger form of this darling penguin image on a card I made which is in the current Paper Creations magazine!  I couldn't resist using him again since he brought me such good luck the first time.
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!
