Gina K Design December Release, preview Day 1!!!

Can you believe its that time again? Sneaked up on me that's for sure! I am so excited for our previews this month....this is our first month with all of the new DT members! Are you in for a treat this time....Such gorgeousness to feast your eyes on and LOTS of it! Up first tonight we have two stamp sets...First I have Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called...Mugs and Kisses....how cute is that title??!! Wait till you see! This is what I have done for my sample tonight:



I LOVE making coasters as gifts for Christmas, and this year, with Carafe's for coffee being so popular I decided to make a matching one along with the coasters too! I used Stayz On ink on all of the coasters...that is the main thing to do. I actually used a sponge and Q-tip to paint with too! Then just did some doodling on it with permanent markers around the edges..all done! I cant wait to make some more and get alot of my gift giving done!

Ok, next is a new set by Tami Mayberry called Block Greetings and it fits perfect with square nestabilites! LOVE that! here is what I did for tonight:



I decided to do a TAD of distressing, lol! I also used the white gel pen and did some pen work on it...I really love how this turned out! And so thrilled now too that we have some images to work with the squares! So I decided to make a totally square card with it!

Ok, ready for all this gorgeous eye candy coming your way? I know I am and cant wait to see myself! Here are the links to my fellow DT:

What fun to be able to use the new stamps and show some wonderful stamping ideas, as you have done. I love the coasters using the mug stamp with stazon ink. The coasters would be a great gift for anyone to receive or also use yourself. I also love the way you used the block greetings with the spellbinders. It are really neat and thanks for giving us some great ideas to use with the stamps.
