Gina K Designs Customer Blog Hop

Tonight I am sharing a few items for the blog hop.
My first item is an acrylic frame which I stamped using first, Nina Brackett's, "Vintage Borders" and at the bottom... using Asela Hopkins, "First Christmas".
Both were heat embossed on the outside of the acrylic frame. I then used some DP and put my daughter's pic inside. I used my Copics to color parts of the bear and I found if you dab as you put the ink on... it made the bear appear fluffy. *smile* Here's a close up of the bear, but it's kinda blurry. I also used a few blings on the outside of the frame and adhered a bow along the top. I wasn't very pleased with how it turned out... my kids were rushing me and I wasn't going to post it... but I figured it would at least give you an idea.
My next project was made for my dad to be from the kids. My dad loves just about anything nature-wise and after working for him for 20 years, we saw lots of beautiful cardinals in the trees near the office. He always mentions how pretty they are so I knew I had to use Asela's, cardinal for his card. I apologize for the ribbon shadowing the cardinal... didn't notice until I was posting. I started out with Gina K's, Pure Luxury Soft Sand, paper for my base. I stamped the cardinal on white and layered it with red then mounted it all on the Pure Luxury Good as Gold. I found some awesome gold ribbon today at Hobby Lobby and knew I wanted to use it on the tag. I am not sure this Nestabilties Fancy Tags was meant for ribbon but I made is so anyway. Hee Hee.
Now for the inside. Do you ever realize AFTER you made something that you saw it before!!! And think... "OMGosh!!! No wonder this was in my mind!!!" Yep... Melanie had done this before for us all. I made so that when opened, grandpa can display it in his office on the shelf where he has ALL his grand kids. I used Melanie Muenchinger's, "Festive Frame", (and apparently her DESIGN!!! Eeeek!) but went with VERY non-traditional poinsettia colors so that it wouldn't look "Christmasy" (is that a word??) all year.
I decided on just a regular card opening thinking that again, if he wanted, he could get an double acrylic frame to slide this into as well. The pine cones on the pink side were sparkled a bit on the ends with the Stardust Glazer pens from Gina K. I lightened the pine cones so that they were a bit softer since the flowers were done in pinks. Also on the back I made sure to use Gina's, "Signed with Love" so that Grandpa can always remember when he got their gift. I hope you enjoy the hop tonight... it's sure to be a HUGE one and packed with TONS of inspiration!!! Have a good evening!!!
