Gina K Design May Release day4!!!!

Welcome back to our last day of previews...but no need to be sad...cause tomorrow night is the FUN release party and afterwards you can purchase these awesome stamp sets yourself! wooohoooooo!!

Once again, we have 3 sets up tonight....first isNina Brackett's newest sets called Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions....I decided to make a tag with Fine Furnishings to show you tonight:



I used the emboss resist technique on the chandelier image from the set, and also the small frame behind 'new' is from the set too! Used several distress inks, a paper doily and memory glass encases some old stamps....I made the flower out of pages from an old telephone book, and the words 'What's New' are cut out of a magazine and mounted on a piece of sturdy cardstock then cut out...I really like how this one turned out! Hope you do too!
Up next is the newest one free with three by Gina called Friends Are Forever, and I decided to do another distressed look, this time on a card:



Love the floral images in this set, and the sayings are just perfect!! I know I send most of my cards to friends, more so than family so this is a fantastic set for me to have!

(this card gave me fits getting a pic of it...darn red!! LOL)

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!

One card, a couple of challenges filled.

Howdy all! I have a card today that I made for a challenge at JUGS...it was a color challenge. We were to use red/white/blue/kraft...(one of my FAV combos!) and then Mary Anne pointed out to me that Moxie Fab World was having a Fun With Fabric challenge so added this card to that one too! (I usually dont combine challenges...but did this time with me being so busy with the release for Gina K Designs next week, yay! Ok, ok...here is the card:



I used an old pair of blue jeans for dp! LOVE it! I also used the new scallop border Die-namics from My Favorite Things. now, it did not cut all the way through, even after running it through about 5 times, but it did cut it enough to where I could use my scissors and finish it on up. It does fantastic on even the heaviest cardstock though..and felt! but it just didnt like blue jeans that much, lol! Overall, Im glad I bought it, I had been wanting a scallop border about this size, so loving it!

Ok, thats all for tonight! Hope you are having a wonderfully creative week....I got NEW Gina K Designs stuffs I'm working on and cant wait to show you starting Sunday night!

Illustrator Blog Hop, Movie Magic!!

Howdy ya'll and welcome to our May Illustrator/Design Team Blog Hop for this month! I just LOVED this challenge when Gina gave it to us....we were to design a card based on a favorite movie of ours using last month's release stamps....And I got to tell you, I had MANY movies come to mind, but stuck with this one....here is my card, and can you guess what movie before looking? LOL!







One of my most favorite movies, A River Runs Through It...I still cry a bit every time in this movie! And I know I have seen it about 10 times at least, lol! For my card, I used Theresa's newest set, Gone Fishing. For my 'river', i just used a piece of cardstock, cut freehand, scrunched it up a bit and sanded it to give it more dimension, to look like a river, but it didnt photograph well at all, looks much better IRL! This is a fantastic stamp set for creating scenes though! LOVE it!

For the specific details of the Senior Design Team challenge, please visit  GinaK's Blog 



Then, check out these designer's links for all the projects they have prepared for tonight's challenge:




Thanks for stopping by ya'll! Ill be around with more creations soon I'm sure! :D

Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab...

Since my fellow DT's Trigger Nina's, was chosen this past week at Moxie Fab World I HAD to play along...not to mention, I LOVE it!! Here is the Trigger:


And my card:



As you can see i actually took the literal look of this trigger, lol! WEll, didnt make a purse card, but otherwise....And I didnt realize until after I got the card made that Nina's and my card have sorta the same button, sentiment treatment! It had to have registered in my brain unconsciously, lol!! I love how this turned out though, with those fun colors, how could you not?!! I have one more card with this one in the makes, hope it works out, lol!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope everyone has a wonderfully relaxing weekend!!

Quite A Catch Blog Hop!

Hey Ya'll! Welcome to the Quite A Catch Card Kit Blog Hop for this month! I decided to play along this month too, although I did not use the kit for making the card that comes with the stamp set this month...this is just an adorable set! LOVE it! Here is my card:



I colored all of this with copics, and did the background around the fish like a picture Gina's daughter Alicia did once. Obviously I need more practice, but I think it looks ok for a fishy in the water, lol!

OK, ready for more awesome eye candy?

Moxi Fab Chair Challenge...

I decided to play along in the Three Cheers for Chairs Challenge over on Moxi Fab World! What a fun one...and I decided to do a masculine card for mine...here it is:




This card was another quick one for me, but love how it turned out myself! I kept it flat too, for easy mailing. The pop dots I used dont really give it much dimension, but just enough!

Ok, that's all for now! Be sure and come back at 10pm CST tonight for a fun Blog Hop from Gina K!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderfully creative Thursday!
