School, Sports, Spirit Blog Hop

Today I get to share a few more cards I created using Melanie Muenchinger's newest, "School, Sports, Spirit" set from Gina K Designs. I had so much fun creating this "football" shaped card. I know I don't have the points at the top and bottom, but it made my card to small with them so I flattened it... easier to stand up too... hee hee. I admit though, putting it thru the Cuttlebug was a bit of a challenge. I went for a subtle change in colors on the coat because my husband is a Seahawks fan and they changed their colors (which he doesn't like) a bit and I wasn't sure I was matching them right with the actual colors. So... this is what he got! All is well though... he did recognize I was trying to mimic the Seahawks and that's all that matters. *smile* For my next card, I decided to use the graduation cap in the set because, honestly, I hadn't inked it up yet. My colors mean nothing other than... I liked them!!! Oh! And it helps to have fibers that match what you're creating... hee hee. For even more samples of the School Sports Spirit stamp set, please visit the Illustrator of the set, Melanie Muenchinger's blog. Melanie will be offering her new stamp set as blog candy tonight too - so we hope you'll take the time to comment on her blog for your chance to win this spectacular stamp set! After visiting Melanie, hop over to her guest designer Melissa Shultz's blog for a special card she'll be sharing with us tonight. Melanie has also asked a few members from StampTV to join us in showcasing her new set, so please check out her friends' blogs here:

Then, stop by these GinaK Design Team Members' blogs participating in Melanie's blog hop tonight:

Enjoy the rest of the hop!! Signature
