Gina K Design May Release day 1!!

Hey Ya'll! Welcome to our first day of the previews! Have you been enjoying the snippets on Gina's Blog? Now is the day you get to see some awesome eye candy from everybody! I know it was a bit longer for this release, but believe me, it IS worth it! THREE new colors of cardstock....a brand new StampTV Kit too! And then you gonna have EIGHT stamp sets also to choose from...no, no, you KNOW you gotta have em all! LOL!

Ok, first up tonight is the new stamp set by Rupa Shevde called Beach Bum. This is what I did with it:



I made a little beach scene and stuck the surfboards in the sand, this was so much fun to make too! Hubby said it looked like a postcard...guess thats a good thing? LOL!

Up next is the new stamp set called Botanicals by Gina herself. This will also be the Card Kit Stamp set...although I did not make a card with mine...here is what I did:



I took one of those cheap $1 wood frames from Michaels, painted it white, then sanded it to age it. The brown paper that I stamped on? know what that is? It's what comes in our boxes that we get from Gina K sometimes! I stamped on it, then wadded it all up, smoothed it out and used some distress ink on it! I love how it turned out too. I was going to make another one to match it, cause I think it will look better hanging on the wall with a matching one, but couldnt find my other frame darn it! Ok, enough babbling from me!


For more samples with the stamp sets being previewed tonight, check out these Designer's Links:


Please make plans to attend our Release party this Thursday night, May 27th from 7-10 central time which will be held at StampTV.  There will be contest questions, challenges, samples from several designers and lots of chatter all leading up to 10pm central, when all the new products and stamp sets previewed this week on our blogs become available online through GinaK Designs store!

thanks so much for stopping by tonight, and see you same time same place tomorrow night too!
