Gina K Design August Release Previews, Day 1!!!

Wooohoooooo!! It's FINALLY here! The August release for GKD! Whew! That was a LONG time to go without a GKD new stamp fix wasnt it? LOL! We have THREE new stamp sets to preview tonight, so I'll keep my yacking down a bit, haha! Up first tonight is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Wild at Heart....and yes Mel is! LOL! here is what I did with it:



As you will see, Its a LARGE stamp, but I cut mine down like this, and before cutting it down, I sponged some distress inks all over it, to give it some variance in colors. It reminds me of that foil scratch paper in the kids section at Hobby Lobby!

Up next is two stamp sets by Nina Brackett and the first one I am showing you is called Grand Damask...here is my creation:



I decided to make a tag with is, using the emboss resist technique. I also used distress inks on this too, and a sentiment from Mel's new set too on this one! Just love how all of the stamp sets can be used together!

Next is Nina's newest called Fanciful Tags And it matches the Fanciful Tags from Spellbinders...how fun is THAT!?!! Here though, I decided to show you that you do not HAVE to use the dies!!



I stamped the tag image, with a sentiment that fits perfectly inside, then just added a touch of color and cut it out. Love how this looks too!

Ok, ready for more eye candy!?
