Gina K Designs/Faber-Castell Blog Hop Day 5!!!!!

Welcome to day four of our Gina K. Designs/Faber-Castell Blog Hop!  We are so excited to team up with the Faber-Castell designers! Both of the design teams are sure to inspire you with many beautiful, creative ideas for using Gina K. Designs and Faber-Castell products together. 


Faber-Castell has soooo many gorgeous products....but I just happened to use the fabulous Gelatos....I love them!!!  


I do so adore winter....and PINK!!!  And I love combining the two for some colorful and cheery winter cards!!!  I used an embossing folder and then lightly rubbed the Gelato over top and the embossed design just pops right out!  I used Theresa's gorgeous Let It Snow stamp set and Pure Luxury in White and Innocent Pink!!!


As you hop through the our designers blogs, make sure to leave a comment, because each day a random comment will be chosen and that stamper will receive a Gina K. Designs stamp set of their choice, valued at up to a $24.95!
 
Then, pop over to the Faber-Castell Blog by clicking HERE and leave a comment for a chance to win a Designing With Gelatos Kit too!
We have a full week of amazing inspiration to share with you, so let's get started!

Neat card. Your embossed folder just jumps off the paper! I have tried so many different ways to color the embossed folder and it always colors the background. I guess Gelato is the way to go. I really need a video to see how you do it.
