Inspirational Blog Hop Day 1

Good morning everyone!

We had a fabulous time last night at the release party and today, the team has put together an inspirational blog hop featuring two of the new sets released last night.

First, Melanie Muenchinger has designed the perfect companion set to her Holiday Basket and Spring Basket sets.

Basket Additions tops off any card with style! Check out last night's StampTV Video featuring this set here- Basket Additions Gift Card Holder



And Theresa Momber also released a Stamp set featuring beautiful Images of Hope and Encouragement in her new Strength and Hope Stamp Set.

We have included a link on StampTV with a list of what color ribbons correspond with what kinds of cancer and other illnesses and disorders so you can create the perfect card for anyone who is suffering or troubled. Click here to find the link: Ribbon Color Chart



And to hear more about this set, here is a video featuring ribbon coloring from last night's party.

    24. Gina, what a great card! Just want to let you know you have been so inspiring to me. I had given up on ever stamping because the images just didn't turn out good. I have been watching your videos and fell in love with them. They are so inspiring! The techniques are beautiful, and more important for me, easy to do. So, here's to Gina K.! Thanks a bunch.

    28. I wasn't able to join the party, but Gina, I just want to say that of all the sights I visit; the cards I see made, I definitely have to say yours is one of the finest, bestest (don't think that's a word, but) and most fun to watch and work with you. I really enjoyed the wax paper/aluminum foil technique. I have not used stamps in a long time, but from the looks of everything I have seen of yours, it is time to get back to STAMPING!

      These two sets of cards are outstanding. Hope to get somewhere and start stacking up on stamps. Thanks again. Judy
