Gina K Design December Preview Day 2!!

Hey ya'll! Welcome back to day two of our previews for this month....wasnt last night's awesome too?! I was so blown away by such gorgeous creations! And tonight, we have two more sets to preview for you. Up first is Theresa Momber's newest set called The Giving Tree. This is what I have done with it for tonight:




I decided to show a tag I made with it. I love making tags and this came together very quickly. I think trying to photograph it took longer than making...its so sparkly IRL! Used alot of distress inks and distress paint on it too, then misted with some shimmer mists! LOVe how sparkly it is and cant show you! LOL! Well, take my word for it...it's pretty in the sun! LOL!

Ok, next up is Asela Hopkin's newest set called Nesting. Here is my creation with this set for tonight:



I was going for a snow owl look! He is colored with a white prisma pencil, then I used my white gel pen on him in spots too to make him more white. I love coloring on kraft...and love how this turned out actually!

Ok, ready for more awesomeness tonight? Here ya go!

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:

I decided to do a little bit of rustic wintery look, the winter part in the sentiment, lol! This was a super quick card to make and will be easy mailing! Love that and needed sometimes too! Ok, up next is another set illustrated by Gina called Snow Much Fun and if you love snowman's (and even if you dont actually!) you will HAVE to have this set! here is my creation with this set for tonight:

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.
