"Christmas / Winter Wishes" Blog Hop

November Blog Hop Badge

Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in our November blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina will now be featuring Gina K. Designs stamps only for our monthly blog hops starting this month!  A lot of us have started to create our holiday cards.  There are some amazing new stamp sets by Gina K. Designs that were released in October and we are sure to be inspired in the upcoming November release as well! 
This month, we are honored that we are joined by Rebecca Oehlers, a Gina K. Designs Illustrator who has created some beautiful stamp sets for Gina K. Designs available in the Stamp TV Store!
The blog hop designers have been busy creating a card or cards that we hope will inspire you to create some beautiful Christmas and winter themed cards for your family and friends.  Enjoy yourself as you hop along for the holidays! 


Becky Oehlers is a member of the Gina K. Designs Illustrator Team! Becky’s style is really fun, crisp and clean.  They are used to make wonderful cards with just the right message or can be used to add some fun to your scrapbooking pages.  In addition, Becky is one of the best card designers and artists in the craft world.  Go to Becky’s blog to look at the great things she has been up to AND view the card samples she has created with her newest stamp set “Mistletoe Memories” that was released yesterday during the Stamp TV October Release Party.  Becky’s blog address is: 

This is the project I made for you. I didn't use the traditional Christmas colors and went a little bit Shabby-chic :)

Sending Warm Wishes:
  • Make card base from Ivory Cardstock.
  • Cut a panel from Sandy Beach (3.75" x 5"), ink the flat side of Snowfalkes embossing folder with Antique Linen Distress, it will ink only the deboss part and make the snowflakes from the folder a little lighter.
  • Mat this piece with a sligthly bigger piece of Innocent Pink Cardstock. Add stitches.
  • Stamp sentiment on a piece of Sandy Beach CS in Memento Espresso Truffle Ink. Stamp snowflakes in Memento Angel Pink Ink. Die-cut, emboss and stencil piece with Label 8 Nestabilities Dies. Die-cut and emboss a piece of Warm Cocoa with Decorative Labels 8 Nestabilities.
  • Die-cut, emboss and stencil Poinsettia flower in different sizes, create a flower and adhere it to card.
  • Add Swirl bling.
