Quite a Catch Blog Hop

Gina K Designs  has introduced one of the cutest stamps sets! -- I've made a couple of projects I wanted to share with you.  The first is a coaster set -- my first intention was to make these for our lake house.  I made a card to go with it - but I may now need to give it as a gift.  The coasters were SUPER SIMPLE.  Gina K has a video tutorial on how to make these here at this link.  I found these on the clearance aisle at Walmart.  I paid $5.00 for a set of 4 with a wood carrier.  I want to find more because the little carrier makes this look complete.  I'm hoping to make a couple of them for Christmas Gifts -- as soon as Gina K comes out with this year's Christmas stamps -- NEVER too early to think ahead!

The card is a shaker card - the sand is from Sand Beach in Bar Harbor, Maine:
Stamp: Quite a Catch 
Paper: Gina K Designs White cardstock, dp is from the Quite A Catch Card Set
Other:  Cuttlebug, shaker plastic, google eyes, rope ribbon from SU

The Coaster Set:

Stamp:  Quite a Catch
Coaster set from Walmart Clearance rack
Other:  Ribbon, google eyes, Copic Markers
