I am excited to be joining in the Gina K. Designs Design Team December Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas, and as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because a few random comments will be chosen and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners, check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops.

The new Melanie Muenchinger set called Lots of Letters  is just perfect for my new love of Clean and simple cards. It  is available in both clear photopolymer and red rubber.

This is the first letter and number set from Gina K. Designs and is packed with frames and elements that will help your stamped cards, pages or personalized designs shine!   Gina K. also carries matching Silhouette Studio cut files for only 99 cents each which make creating beautiful and professional cut designs with these stamps a breeze. The square and circles images are also perfect for your dies and punches, fitting perfectly in a ¾” or larger die or punch.

I created this card not just for Melanie’s blog hop, but also as an entry for the Keen on Neon Moxie Fab World Challenge.  I started with a 3″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock. The bottom right corner was rounded before I stamped the square stamp with the one rounded edge  four times in the right corner  (once in Mango Madness VersaMagic ink, once in Key Lime VersaMagic ink, once in Sea Breeze VersaMagic and once in Rose Bud Memento Ink). Hi was stamped in the orange square with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

More white cardstock was cut and embossed with MFT’s Retro Squares Die-namic die and adhered over a thin strip of MME Life of the Party patterned paper (old pack…I wish I had more. Love the funky colors). The white cardstock piece was adhered to the right hand side of the  card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Patina Fourz Bazzill cardstock, folded in half. The retro square strip was adhered to the left hand side, leaving only about 1/4″ of the Patina base showing.

A heart was cut out of orange Core’dinations cardstock with the smallest heart from Hearts a Plenty Die-namics die. It was topped with a button that was tied on with silver cord. The heart was adhered slightly above the center of the retro squares strip. Black rhinestones were added to the square strip and silver chevron rhinestones to the colorful stamped squares to finish off the card.

Please see Melanie’s blog for the full link list of blog hop participants! Also, if you come back tomorrow, you will see another card created with the Lots of Letter sets and with leftovers from what I used (or tried to use) on this car).  And this afternoon, I am posting some super exciting Splitcoaststampers news here! I am tickled pink about this!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
