Gina K Designs Preview Day!!

I am sooo thrilled to be a part of this blog hop, and the previews this time! If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you KNOW how much I enjoy Gina K Design stuff!! And then when she asked me to be part of her design team, I actually hollered out loud!! WOOHOOO!! LOL!!

And what awesome stamps are in this month's release!! Plus new color cardstock, Soft Sand, digital paper, some free even, some bling and a new cutting tool, ink, and a bigger acrylic block!!! You will see why you might just need that block too tomorrow!! Ok, on to the good stuff!

First up is Rupa's newest set "100% Sweet" and it totally is!! Here is my card I decided to do:



I decided to make a shaker card, this is my first time to try this and I just love how it turned out! The picture was a bit hard to take, lol, with the acetate in it, all that glare! That is NOT a boo boo up top though, above the donuts, thats a glare, lol! These really are simple to make and lots of fun! The donuts have cystal effects on them along with the seed beads...that chocolate donut looks so real in person!! My grandson took the image, before I had put it all together and touched it with his finger and then tried to lick his finger, lol! So it really does look good enough to eat, according to him, haha!! This is only one of fun images in this set, and the sentiment too! Wait till you see the rest!

Next up is Theresa Momber's newest set "Happy Camper"! Ohhhh my!! Another awesome one from Theresa...here is my card I did:




And I apologize for this weird angle of this card, but once again I used acetate on this one. I did an overlay on it with the trees from this set. Although the trees are part of the mountain stamp itself, I just masked off the mountain part of the stamp, inked up the trees, then took off the tape that I used to mask the mountains off with and then stamped the trees onto the acetate with stayzon ink. I think it gives it a bit more depth doing this! I tried to create a mist rising up the trees and mountains, can you see it? LOL! All of this was colored with copic markers.

Now, are you ready for more awesome previews? I know you are!! Here are the links:

Gina, Carolyn, Cindy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Jessica, Joanne, Kurtis, Lee, Lynn, Melanie, and Theresa
