Gina K Design April Preview Day 1!!

Howdy all and welcome to day one of the April previews! I still get so excited when it comes to the previews, so excited to show the awesome stamp sets that YOU can own! Yay!! These have been so much fun to work with this time to me! We have 2 sets we are previewing tonight so I'll hush and get with showing the cards, lol! Up first is Melanie Muenchinger's newest set called Gifts from the Sea...here is one of my cards I did: (saving the other for the release night!)



I actually couldnt decide which card I made to post tonight so I let Billy pick...so this is his fav! I also used Nina Brackett's set Lovely Labels on this too. IRL, the corals look the same, but for my pic..they look different! LOL! This is a really big card, 5 x 7, it's a corrugated card that I got a pack of them at Michaels on clearance but I think it looks fantastic with these seashells! And I just LOVE that saying! I also made the envelope to match the card.

Ok, up next is Tami Mayberry's newest set called, Oh Boy!....And although the title may give away the images in this set...I decided to go a slightly different way! here is mine:



I decided to show you that it doesnt have to be JUST for the male species! LOL! I LOVE this fun set though! I am looking so forward to making Blake, my grandson a card with this and sending it to him, he will love getting something like that in the mail!

Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy??
