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! If you arrived from Tosh's card, you are in the right place.

I received a most welcome email from Melanie, asking me to join in her hop this month.  After all that I have been though, this was so so special!!! I am so thankful! Thank you Melanie!!!!

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

Now for today’s project I used Melanie's Stately Flowers 4 stamp set, which I colored with my Copics. The Copics used were R46, R39, Y35, YG23 and R29. I wanted to use this stamp to make a Christmas colored card! All my cs is from Gina K. Designs. The bg is was impressed with my Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers folder. The little gold sprinkles were attached with white glue.
