Welcome to the Show Me the Stamps Holiday kick off for Gina K Designs!  For this month’s hop, several of the Gina K Designs Illustrators have brought together their design teams and guests for a lineup of fun and exciting things to share using their stamps.  Today I am excited to help illustrator Melanie Muenchinger showcase some of her past sets!

The Gina K Designs Illustrators have also decided this month they want to help you celebrate the holidays in style with some Gina K Design stamps!

For this month’s hop the Gina K Designs Illustrators will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store!

You can find the complete list of Gina K Design Illustrators participating on Melanie's Blog.

Of course, you’ll want to be sure and check out all of the links from Melanie’s guests, too!  Why? Because Melanie will personally be sending out a surprise gift to someone who comments on her guests’ blogs as well. So many ways to win!

Now for today’s project.





I fell in love with the floral images, from Melanie's Stately Flowers 5 set, the minute I saw them.  It was the Sunflower that caught my attention first since it's my favorite flower.  However, when I saw the mistletoe image I about swooned.  :)  It's beautiful and charming, and unique.  I couldn't wait to feature it on a card.  The sentiments are so beautifully fonted in this set too, perfect for each floral image.  I chose to use the Merry Christmas image.




There's a lot of sparkle on this card.  I added it to the diecut, embossed and punched pieces, as well as to the white berries that I covered with an opaque white gel pen.  The mistletoe leaves were colored with Copics.

That about sums up what I was inspired to create today.  I'm honored to be hopping along with some very talented ladies today.


Here is the complete list of Melanie’s  guest star stampers today:
                             Tosh Leyendekker   (you are here)
