Hi! We are having a very special blog hop to introduce Tami Mayberry's newest stamp sets for Gina K Designs, Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid. Oh my word, I have never seen a stamp set this large!!! Calendar Bits & Pieces is huge and Calendar Grid is enormous.
The possibilities for these sets are endless! I used the calendar grid to make a grid background for my card. I used one of my favorite stamps from the set, the label stamp that fits of the the Spellbinders Labels 1 Nestibilities!
For some helpful tips on how to use the Calendar Bits & Pieces and Calendar Grid stamp sets, please be sure to check out Gina's blog and StampTV for a helpful video on just how quick and easy it can be to use! Both of these sets as well as the PDF version of the Calendar Grid image will be available for purchase tonight over on our online store.
After that, stop by our Illustrator's blog - Tami Mayberry for some projects with her timely stamp sets.
Here are the GinaK Designer Member's links who are joining us in the preview tonight:

I don't have many photos for this card, since it is pretty basic, but I did take a few to show you how I did the grid background. I stamped with Versa Mark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then I sponged Bashful Blue(SU) ink.
Sponged Ballet Blue ink.
Then I used the snowflake stamp from Calendar Bits & Pieces and stamped randomly using Bashful Blue ink. I like the way the sponging comes out using the grid stamp. I think it looks a bit like faux tile. The embossing caused the ink to be just a bit darker along the lines.
I cut my background into two pieces and assembled the card using Pure Luxury Black Onyx, White and In The Navy cardstock. I stamped the snowflake and sentiment using Vivid Inky Blue and then used my Startdust Glitter Pen to add some sparkle to the snowflakes. (sorry that didn't show up in my photo).
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is filled with stamping fun!
