Hey Y'all!  Glad to have you here!

Welcome to our final day and nothing to be sad about, lol!  Cause its RELEASE day!  yay!  At 7PM tonight all new stamps we have previewed the last few days will be available at Gina K. Designs
 And dont forget!  Leave those comments on the blogs for your chance to win that $50 gift certificate! We will be announcing the winners at the release party, but Gina posts the winner daily on her blog.

You should have arrived form the oh so awesome
Arjita Singh's blog!

Up first today is a new set illustrated by Gina called, "Your Make Me Smile"  Here is what I have for you today:


 Well, this card is another of my booboos that I turned into a card, lol!  I was watercoloring the flowers and it just not doing right!  So i scribbled on with the watercolors, thus creating this background!  I sprinkled some water to get the white spots and the images is heat embossed in white also.  Then distressed the edges a bit, tied a bow and all done!  Easy peasy mistake made pretty!  D

Next up is a new set with new illustrator for us, Emily Schroepfer, Lettered and Lovely.  And ohhh how lovely it is!  I so envy folks who can do this writing like these stamps have!  But, since I cannot, I now have this lovely stamp set!  I LOVE love it!  here is what I have done for today:

I heat embossed the writing with some turquoise embossing powders .  It's hard to tell, but its shiny and pretty IRL, it has pretty silver carstock for the topping and scalloped bottom  and for a layer.  Really makes the colors just pop together! Love this card, the colors especially!

Ok ready for more wonderul inspiring eye candy?  I know you are!  Next up on the blog hop is the ohsoawesome

What a cool "mistake". I love the second card, too. Love the light sentiment on the darker background.

Your flower card is beautiful with the droplets and soft ribbon...what a great technique. Card 2 is also pretty...with the beautiful lettering in a nice size the card almost decorates itself...little need be added!

Terri (blindstamper) said...

The white embossing is amazing with your color choices.

Johanna said...

It is always so interesting to me when someone I consider expert admits to a mistake and how she rescued the card. If you didn't say anything no one would ever know, cos the end result is lovely. Also like the sentiment card. I think that stamp set will sell out really quickly.

charlsie smith said...

Well I think that is one fantastic boo boo. Wish mine turned out that great. Thank you

Marjorie DUMONTIER said...

These are two wonderful cards !
