Gina K Design August Release Previews, Day 4!!

Welcome back to our last day of previews! And then we have the release party tomorrow night, cant wait to see you there too! Ok, we have two stamps sets tonight..both illustrated by Gina ...one is the 'One Free with three' set and the other is this months Card Kit. Up first I have the One Free with Three set called You Are Not Alone...I love the sentiments in this set! Here is my creation with this set:



I used soft tones on this card, for a 'soothing' feel to it. I did some tearing of the edges, which seems to be really hot right now! I have always loved doing that too, so I'm in style for once, haha! Ok, up next is the new set that will come with a card kit by Jessica for a limited time...called Lean On Me...here is what I have done with it:


I slapped a big ole bow on there, but I love the big bows! Both of these cards came together really quickly, which surprised me about myself...hmmm...maybe I work better under pressure..well, not necessarily BETTER, but quicker? Me, putting stuff off to the last minute! haha! Ok, on to more awesome eye candy!

Gina K Design August Release Previews, Day 2!!

Welcome back to day 2 of our previews for this month! And we have more awesome eye candy for you tonight too! ANOTHER 3 stamp sets! Up first I have the newest by Theresa Momber called Farm Life....and I think Theresa was looking out my back door for this stamp set, lol! here is my fun card I did for tonight:



I could not resist taking the cow, who I affectionately call Bessie, from the Gina K Design stamp set 'Down on the Farm' and stick her in the pasture!! LOL! I am sure you will see some awesome scenes with this set tonight, so went a bit different! Bessie may not look real happy, but she actually is, now she has a pasture to graze in! ;)
Next up is Tami Mayberry's newest set called Faithful Florals...one of the first things about this set to me were the quotes in it...LOVE them! Here is one I used for tonight:



I stamped the sentiment and then just stamped one of the floral images to the side and added just a bit of flower soft to it, tad of sponging and basically was done! I think this card would boost somebody's spirits a bit! :)
OK, last but not least is the newest by Asela Hopkins called Boo!...yep, Halloween is coming! Here is my creation with this set:



I always have so much fun making Halloween cards, and I did with this one too! Made the bat 'dp' with images from the set also...love this little sentiment...'ghoulfriend'...haha! too cute! Ok, on to more eye candy!!

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!?
