Gina K Design Preview Day 3!

Welcome to Day 3 of the previews for Gina K Designs! Today we are previewing the new Stamp TV Kit, and OH MY! It's an AWEsome one! For my card tonight I chose to use the solid reindeer image in the kit:

I decided to do a grunge kinda look with my card this time! I did some serious sponging with distress inks on this and also used perfect pearls on the snowflakes and the reindeer. Here is a close up that shows the shimmer a BIT better:

It really does shimmer in real life! It looks like the reindeer is jumping up trying to catch a snowflake to me, lol! I love the kinda non-traditional colors I used in this too. I also used the perfect pearls to paint a button in the copper color too, was surprised how well that worked!

Now for my next item I decided to use a small clear box that Gina will have in her store with this release...I do not think this small rectangle box comes in the Stamp TV kit, but you DO get 1 large clear box , 1 large clear pillow box, 1 medium clear pillow box, 1 small clear pillow box...not mention TWO stamps sets, Holiday Cheer and Holiday Greetings, ribbon assortments AND sooo much wonderful cardstock! OK...here is my little box:

One thing I do for my daughter since she was little, and I continue to do since she moved out even, is to make her a stocking just stuffed to the gills with small items. The stocking has always been her favorite, since she was super small even! So I am loving these little boxes to put all of my little things I get for her for Christmas in! For this size, I am going to put makeup in it for her, eyeshadows, blush and such...she will LOVE it! For my box lid, I followed Gina's tutorial found here:
Gift Box Lid
I cut mine down to fit this smaller box. If you are interested in the measurements I used for mine, I will get them to you, just email me. I will have them up on my blog by this weekend too.

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy once again? Here are the links:
