Gina K Designs Preview Day 2!!

Hey all, welcome back for Day 2 of the previews for this Thursday's new release stamps! Did ya love yesterday's as much as I loved showing them!?? Just wait till you see today's goodies!

For my first card, this uses Theresa Momber's newest set from Gina K entitled Timeless Treasures:


You are gonna love this set! It really quite different than any set that I have seen in Gina's stamp line. I love how you can use this, like for a distressed look, using all the fun products that are out there now too (which I will have another sample like that this Thursday night for a challenge that I will be hosting using this set!) I had a little fun with this card. The image of the pendant is actually one that you can color in, but I decided to make it a silhouette! Notice the stitching around it? No, I still havent broken out my Janome Mini yet, LOL! That is by hand still, I just pierced all around then used some black thread and did a backstitch.

Now, for my second preview, I used Rupa's newest set entitled Are We There Yet? :



Well, there is something about moving vehicles that I think I have to customize them, lol! This is my customized retirement motor home! LOL! I have always said that I was gonna do this when I retire...buy me a motor home and decorate it with hippy flowers! rofl! I even put some custom wheels on it! I had such fun with this card, and I even did the inside too:


I think this makes such a fun retirement card, and with lots of my friends reaching that age, this stamp is just right!
