12 Days of Christmas *Day 10* Gina K Designs

09:00


Hi Crafters,
I am so excited to be having a Gina K weekend on the 12 Days of Christmas! Today I am taking apart the Merry and Bright Stamp Kit - so amazing with (2) 6x8 stamp sets, three coordinating dies and 24 sheets of the amazing Gina K cardstock all for $59.96 (value $123)! I wanted to show off three completely different looks to show just how versatile this card kit is. It truly is amazing. Gina is also so generous and is sponsoring a $50 gift certificate for one lucky winner which will be announced November 10th!




I started off very simple for this card. I stamped the ornament once along with the sentiment and embossed them in gold. As simple and pretty as they looked, I wanted more. 


Using some post it notes, I masked off the ornament I embossed and added one more. I just couldn't stop so I added a third. I love how the designs in the ornaments are stretched to make it look round!


This is the ultimate bulk holiday card because it involves stamping four stamps at the same time using versa mark ink, embossing in white and mounting it onto some cardstock. It is so simple and elegant and only takes minutes. You can also use the Hanukkah or Christmas dies instead of the Holiday.


I'm all about white frames. I think adding that card panel on top of a card base makes everything look so clean and finished.


This card was relatively complex for those who have some time. I embossed all of the pinecones using copper embossing powder and die cut them all using the coordinating dies. I then glue them all onto a piece of cardstock and die cut them using a stitched rectangle die. I stamped the Christmas sentiment and cut it using the coordinating die.



Thank you Gina for sponsoring today's giveaway!
