Gina K. has outdone herself with this year’s holiday StampTV Kit, Fruit of the Season. I cannot get over all of the beautiful images in each of the sets! The sentiments in each set go perfectly with the images, and they are so unique.

I love this giant poinsettia. It has the most amazing detail. The white space could be colored in, but I liked how it gave some highlights to the flower. I stamped the poinsettia in Red Velvet, but used Fresh Asparagus to do some extra inking. This technique adds so much to stamped images that are more solid.

I used the new Elegant Script background stamp to give a little texture to the Kraft cardstock. I distressed the edges a little bit and sponged Kraft ink over it to deepen the distress.

This is the simplest little card, and it is just so cute! I stamped the Elegant Script in Kraft ink over Sandy Beach cardstock, which brings out the script more than if it were stamped on Kraft. You can see the difference between the two because my little greeting ribbon is Kraft on Kraft.

I am so into pine boughs and pine cones. I love that this kit comes with the dies to cut out these pieces to make Christmas cardmaking so quick and simple. Pairing this card with a Red Velvet envelope really makes it festive.

These apples have such a vintage vibe, and I love it. I did the inking technique using Sweet Corn and Red Velvet for one apple flavor, and Red Velvet and Fresh Asparagus for the other flavor. I did use my Prismacolor pencils to add in a little more color to the white spaces.

This card works beautifully for fall time (which is my all-time favorite time of year!). I love this greeting from a Bible verse, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love.”

It’s a partridge in a pear tree! I absolutely love this card. I think it is just darling that there is a partridge and a pear (and a partridge in a pear tree greeting!) in this stamp set. I paired it with some pine boughs to create the tree part of the equation, and layed it all out over the wood slice from the “Something Good” stamp set featured in my last blog post.

I used the Music Background stamp in Kraft on Kraft cardstock to add a little musical touch to the card.

I colored over the inked pears with my Prismacolor colored pencils to fill in the white space and also to add shading. I colored a little over my partridge as well. This card was so fun to create.

Snowflake time! I used the new background stamp, “Delicate Snowflake” to stamp and heat emboss snowflakes on Kraft cardstock. I die cut a few of the snowflakes in the kit (also heat embossed over Kraft cardstock) and put them around my greeting that I heat embossed onto vellum.

I added a little scalloped layer from a large scalloped rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. I just love white and kraft. I finished off my greeting with a couple little white brads. The greetings in this kit are some of the most unique I have seen in a StampTV kit. I absolutely love that! It is so nice to have stamps in my collection that are different and unique.

And now, the winning greeting from the entire kit. “If hugs were snowflakes, I’d send you a blizzard.” This is the perfect card to make for winter! It is so versatile and downright the sweetest thing ever.

I used Sea Glass to stamp the Delicate Snowflakes background stamp over a sponged (with Sea Glass) piece of GKD White Heavy cardstock. I used a very thin piece of Tranquil Teal cardstock to back my card front. I just wanted that little bit of teal poking around the layer.

My snowflakes are stamped in Sea Glass and Tranquil Teal. These colors are absolutely amazing when paired up. We’re talking a peanut butter and jelly kind of pairing here.

I used the same snowflakes to create a slightly different layout that is simpler without the sponging and background stamp. This card really lets the snowflakes speak for themselves. I love how chunky they are! I added a few little iridescent jewels for more sparkle.

This card uses the same layout style as the first snowflake card, but I just stamped my greeting in Black Onyx at the bottom. A little Spectrum Noir sparkle to a few snowflakes really steps it up.

I used the ink blending technique to create a fade of ink on some of the larger snowflakes to add interest. I love how this turned out!

  1. It’s amazing what a rich warm feeling using the Kraft or Sandy Beach cardstock gives a card. All of your cards using these colors had a beautiful rustic vintage touch.
