School Sports Spirit Blog Hop

Good evening!

I am thrilled to be joining several other designers tonight showcasing Melanie Muenchinger's School Sports Spirit stamp set in another GinaK blog hop! I made my cards last night and didn't have time to photograph them at home - so I brought them in the store today to see if I could have a chance to photograph them during the day. The photos aren't necessarily the best - but you can see a peek of the store in some of them, so I thought you'd all enjoy that! lol!

My first card is a super simple one that I made with two new Cuttlebug folders called Stars and Herringbone. These folders are so fun and great to use with these masculine/tween stamp sets, I think.

Here's the inside of this card ...

See all those fun stamp sets in the background? lol!

My next card is my favorite one - I used Nestabilities Tags 5 dies for all the tags and medals Melanie included in her stamp set...

I stamped the images on my cards tonight with Black Memento ink and colored with Copics. Then, I used some Stardust glitter pens and stickles to add some bling to the medals. You can see that sparkle better in this photo...

and the inside - which was actually the inspiration for the first card I shared tonight on my blog!


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:
