Gina K Designs November Previews, Day 1!!!

Hey ya'll! It's that time of month again, arent ya thrilled!??!! I am so very excited, as always, to show you the awesome new sets from Gina K Designs This month! And once again, the Illustrators have rocked it! We have two sets to preview for you tonight...up first I have Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called A Year of Borders...You are going to LOVe it! Here is what I did for tonight:



I decided to pair up the border of sea shells with Mel's set Gifts From the Sea and make this card, I did a bit of what I call shadow stamping with the other set and then just used the seashell border stamp as my main focal image. LOVE it!

Next up we have Nina Brackett's newest set called Winter Mittens and this set will coordinate with Spellbinder's Nested Mittens set! Oh my the possibilities!! Here is what I have for tonight:



I made a little gift set, a card and a tin that holds (held!) some homemade candy! This mitten is suppose to be an oven mitt, and its not Christmasy, but looks that way! LOL! There are so many different combos with this set you can go either way actually.

Ready for even more inspiration? Be sure and hop to my fellow team members, I KNOW they will rock your socks with some awesome eye candy:




Thanks so much for stopping by tonight! And be sure and come back tomorrow night, same time, same place for even more previews! All leading up to our release party this Thursday night! I will be sure and have the link for that for you too! Have a wonderfully creative day!

Love the gift set - very clever with the oven mitt look, sigh , now I have to spend some $$ :)

Cat - very cute card using the mitten as an oven mitt instead of a wintery mitten! Love it! Your shells card is lovely, too!

Both cards are really cool. I must say that I'm head over heels for that border set and now even more so after seeing your card!

Georgei said...

Both cards are very pretty
like them alot

Paulette said...

Cat, I love how you used the shell border, is there anything more peaceful than walking on the beach and putting treasures into your pocket?! Love that sentiment. I was just wondering if there were any other uses for the mitt and You've done it! Love it as a pot holder, so cute.

Luv 2 Create said...

Love how you made the mitten into an oven mit. Very cute. That makes it useable year round.
