Gina K November release inspiration blog hop: Day 1

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to Day 1 of the Gina K Designs DT Inspiration Blog Hop were we hope to inspire you with many beautiful ideas for the sets released in November! 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:
Lots of Letters, illustrated by Melanie
Warm Woolen Mittens, illustrated by Becky
First up is my card using Lots of Letters.  What a darling set!  The possibilities are endless and I thought these letters would make a perfect banner card.  I stamped the pinking circles with grey and the letters inside with ruby red, then die cut them with Spellbinders Standard Circles LG #1 die, which are a perfect fit!
Next is my card using Warm Woolen Mittens.  These mittens are the cutest!  I paper pieced the cuffs and added tiny snowflake sequins for decoration.  I stamped the border image around the frame opening for decoration.  To get the length just right, I practiced on scratch paper.

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:
