Gina K Design December Preview Day 2!

Welcome back all to day 2 of the Gina K Designs release previews! We have 2 more sets we are previewing tonight...MORE awesomeness to be seen from all of the DT! First up tonight is the newest set from Theresa Momber called Life is Good and indeed so with this set! Just wait till you see all of the fun stuff in this one, and with all the details that Theresa loves to add...well, just WAIT till you see!! here is my card for tonight:



I decided to use the cabin stamp for my card tonight, and make a snow scene. I have smoke coming up out of the chimney, icicles hanging from the roof even! And here is a close up of the icicles:


And I am showing you this close up to give you a little tip when you might want to add some icicles like this...I have used glue and glitter for mine and I ran a line of glue, then took my paper piercing tool and drew down some points with the tip of the tool, to make it look like the tips of the icicles...kwim? THEN sprinkle the glitter over the glue...to me it makes the icicles look more realistic! Just a little tip there, lol! This was all colored with copics too. Really such fun to color! My life would indeed be good with a cabin like this sitting in the woods! Red door and all! :D

Next up is Rupa's newest set called Warm and Wonderful. Rupa's set alot of times sure bring back some wonderful warm memories with me! And this set is the same way, several of the images bring back those memories!! Here is my card I created for tonight:



I used the mittens in the set to make a set of hanging mittens! After making this card, I had an idea...wouldnt they have looked neat hanging from Nina's Lovely Shelf!!?? FUN stuff I tell ya!! We used to have a shelf right by the door to hang stuff on when I was a kid, and would hang mittens there lots of times and that is what I was thinking of making this....(and also that little poem about the kittens loosing their mittens, hee hee!)

For even more ways to use these fabulous stamp sets, please check tonight's featured Illustrator's blog:

I love the icicles and thanks for the mini tutorial. I will have to try that. And great minds think alike :-)...I thought the same thing about the mittens hanging from my shelf. I'll show mine during the previews.

These are fantastic! I love the berry branch you added to the beautifully colored cabin card and those mitten haning from the pegs are darling.

The icicles you put on the cabin are wonderful! The mittens drying bring back my youth. That is when snow was really snow, not slush!
