Please come on in and relax and enjoy yourself. I give all the glory to God for any talent

I have. After all, if He hadn't created me then none of this would exist.

Poppy Case

I copied this card from Penny Odell over on Stamp TV. I didn't put the bow on it like Penny did. She made a great bow. I have trouble with bows so I tried but it didn't work out. I used the Gina K set Stately Flowers I by Melanie Muenchinger.

Card and Tag Set

I made this set of 4 cards and 4 tags to give to my daughter.The buildings and some of the snowflakes are from Marth Stewart's Gingerbread Stickers.

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.

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:

Today I decided to use the Gina K Design Stamp Duo Very Merry. For my first I took a white pre-made card from Paper Studio. My designer paper is from Paper Pizazz's Coordinating Navy Papers. I didn't have a white tag, so I traced a tag onto white cardstock and cut it out and applied some more of the navy dp. I stamped the tree image from Merry tree in pastel ink and cut the tree out by hand. Then I turned it over because I wanted a white tree. I scattered clear adhesive gems on the tree. I glued the tree to the tag. I tied a silver bow with wrapping ribbon on the tag. I emboss the word Merry with Stampendous detail silver embossing powder and tied it around the bow and glued the tag to the card.

For my next card, I used the same set. I love this set! I took a pre-made card and then cut a smaller piece of white card stock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder. I framed the piece with American Craft Gold Linen cardstock. I stamped the Merry Christmas with Stampendous detal Gold embossing powder, cut it out by hand into a rectangle and framed it with the same paper. I took the tree stamp, using Versamark, stamped it three times and embossed them with the Gold ep. I cut the trees out and glued them to the swirled panel. I used the same adhesive gems for the stars in the trees and to accent the Merry Christmas.

Just wanted to remind everyone.

All Dressed Up

Here is a scrapbook layout of my daughter and her family. They are in her brother-in-law's wedding. What a great picture of them all together. Side note: My youngest grand-daughter thought she and her brother got married at the ceremony, because they walked down the aisle together. She was the flower girl and he was the ring bearer.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

I had a whole lot of yellow tags that I bought in a garage sale. So I used the same set, Celebrate the Season, from Stamping Up, to make some Christmas tags.

I am entering this week's challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. I used an old Stamping Up set called Celebrate the Season.

Polka Dot Birthday

I used Justrite Just a Note Set of Stampers.

Case the DT

Stamp TV is having another Case the Designer challenge. This time it is Free For All Friday and the designer is Tina Gilliland. She had so many cards to choose from. Here is the card I made for that challenge. Am also using this for Word Art Wednesday and Stamping Sisters In Christ.

For You

Kat had a challenge on Stamp TV to get you "spook on" but she said if you don't do halloween, you could use the same colors in a different card. I do not celebrate that as a holiday, so this is the card I made using Gina K stamps set Bold and Beautiful.

CAS Hearts

This card is for a challenge on Casual Fridays, which was to make a card with a heart. I am also going to enter it in the Stamp TV challenge Mix It Up Monday Pink, Love and Hope. My stickles on the hearts doesn't scan very well.

Distressed Christmas

A challenge on Stamp TV was to make a distressed Christmas card. I don't have any Gina K Christmas stamps yet, but she has generously given a digital Christmas image on the Stamp TV blog.

More Digital Stamps

I am still playing with free digital stamps. I especially like this one. It is hard to see the Stickles I used for accent. The inside has one of my favorite stamps. "Believe in the Lord, He believes in you." It's a stamp I've had for ten years from Effie Glitzfinger St. Louis Designs.

Glory to God

I am playing with free digital images today. There are a whole lot on the web if you just look. I think I got this image from Word Art Wednesday and I am going to enter this weeks challenge on their blog. Stamp TV also has a challenge on their blog to do a Christmas image with distressing. This is not a Gina K image so I won't be eligible for a prize, but if you use a Gina K image on your entry, you can win great prizes!

Floral Thinking of You

It always means a lot to me when I get a card that says thinking of you. Then I know I am in someone's thoughts and prayers. I also like to send thinking of you cards. This one is made with Stamping Up's Watercolor Trio. Sentiment is Hero Arts Dainty Thinking. I also used Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three. Will be sending this one to Word Art Wednesday.

Little Miss Sassy

I have shared many cards with you. I have been making cards for years and it is my passion. I have dabbled a little into scrapbooking, which doesn't come easy to me. I have made one and one half scrapbooks. Ha! I finished one and I started on another one two years ago and can't seem to finish. Anyway I've decided to try again. After all, I have three daughters and it wouldn't be fair just to give one of them a scrapbook. Here is a scrapbook page I did of my granddaughter.

Celebrate you

I was really blessed this morning. My DH and I went to some garage sales and one of the ladies at one sales was a Stamping Up Consultant. I got 4 sets I have been wanting plus lots of card stock, dp and stickers plus three ribbon holders and dispensers and only spent $22.00. That's what I call a blessing. Here's the card I made. The two sets I used were Celebrate Everything and Watercolor Trio. Used Spellbinders Big Scalloped Rectangles and Background paper is from Close to my Heart.

Making cards is a blessing

It's true. Making cards is a blessing to me. I enjoy it very much. It is my little cozy corner of the world. I can relax and enjoy myself and see what turns out. I love it. Here are two cards I made this weekend.

Sunday, September 23, 2012


Made this card for two challenges. One for Stamp TV Case the designer, but change things and make it your own. Theresa Momber was the selected designer and she has very lovely cards with scenery and lots of shading. Here is her website if you want to be wowed. Also made the card for a favorite blog of mine Word Art Wednesday. They are a wonderful bunch of Christians who host challenges every Wednesday. Used the Iris and caption form Gina K's Bold and Beautiful set.
