Gina K Design April Preview Day 3!!

Welcome back to day 3 of our previews...sooo, what ya think? see anything you like? I have so enjoyed seeing all of my fellow DT and their gorgeous creations...ohhh MY they are so awesome! I am just wowed each month by what they do...I still feel so honored to be part of this awesome team! OK, ok, I will quit getting all gooshy, lol! But I DO mean that!

Once again, we have two stamp sets tonight! Up first we have Asela Hopkins' newest set called Sew Pretty!....omg, I am in love with the vintage images in this set! Here is what I did:

I decided to keep the image uncolored, to kinda go with my 'vintage' theme, ya know, black and white photos! And I also used a real dress pattern to make the tissue flower and for a piece on the card cut with the labels 8 nestie, then sponged and distressed to give it an aged look too. AND also SEWed on it! go me! LOL!

Up next is the newest by Rupa Shevde called Welcome Home ...here is my card with this set:

I decided to do a CAS card for this one. I wanted the focus to be on that Irish blessing sentiment that is in the stamp set... LOVE it! I stamped the row of houses (which you could cut apart if you choose, I left mine together) then stamped and colored the one house and popped it up, scored a few lines and basically was done! Super quick for me, lol!

Ok, ready for more!??
