Gina K Preview Day 3!

Howdy and welcome again to more exciting previews of the new release stamps from Gina K Designs for June! Haven't the ones from yesterday been exciting?? Today, I have two more sets to give you a peek of, one from Melanie and the other from Nina! First up is Melanie's newest set called 'Arranged With Love':


For my card, I decided to just pop the one flower, and to do that I used the rose from Mel's set A Year Of Flowers, it fits perfect over that rose, and the leaves too! I didn't try the other flowers, but I believe they will too. I stamped the whole big ole stamp onto the new Soft Sand cardstock that will be available with this release, with versamark ink then embossed it. I also embossed the red rose and leaves too, just to give texture to match. I also cut a sign out to fit over the little area that is for stamping the sentiments in, added a bit of bling with the red rhinestones and used a bit of sheer ribbon, actually a pretty quick card for me! LOL! And I just love how it turned out!

Next is my card using Nina's set 'Bug Me Anytime':




This set is such a fun and whimsical set! Isn't that spider cute? And I don't even like spiders, haha! But he is a smiling one and giving encouraging words so he's ok, lol! And for this card, I used Designer Paper! LOL! I hear the audible gasp from many of ya'll, haha! I started out doing paper piecing on this, then changed my mind and had the paper out so used it on the card. Some of the images in this set are just perfect for paper piecing to me too, which I'm sure you will see one from me at sometime! And see those little tiny rhinestones on the flowers and the spider? Those will be available from Gina K this Thursday too with the New Release!
