Up first today is the new kit by Gina K.   this kit Elegant Asters....omg you gonna LOVE it!

You get ALL of that that you see up there!  Cardstock, 2 stamp sets and then the dies!  Here is what I have done with this set:
This is a quick card for me, lol.  I used the Wreath Builder also with the set. Those little leaves fit perfectly!  I stamped onto brown recycled paper in black then heat embossed the sentiment in white.  I made this card in 20 minutes!  I knowwww!  I almost fainted myself, haha!  Here is another one:

This card took a bit longer,   lol.  I used distress crayons to create the background.  i was really going for what I ended up with, but made it work.  The flowers, sentiment and the edges of the torn vellum are heat embossed in silver.  I really like the silver embossing on the edges of the vellum like that, looks better IRL as always!  

New up is Lisa Hetrick's new set, Hugs and Wildflowers...another awesome set from Lisa!  

And matching dies!!

 here is one I  have made with this set:
For this card I also used the background stamp called Gauze.  Its very subtle so kinda hard to see also.  I then made a frame around the card base using a stamp from the set.  Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in black.  Did some distressing and punched some holes and tied a bow and tada!  all done! Thought process on this card took lots longer than to make!  And one more card with this set to share with you:

just a quick card made with the distress crayons again since I had them out.  I used them like water colors.  This card is a Billy Favorite!  :D  Ok, one last one from this set, lol.  I made a sunset, or tried!
Its my favorite time of the day!  I could watch sunsets forever!  The colors God produces...the TRUE artist!  And my feeble attempt of capturing that ...looking through a field of wild flowers!  :D
 Next up:
we also released several  little mini stamp  sets!  Here is one called Spring Joy

 and we got matching dies!
Here is what I did with this set:
Jelly bean peeps, haha!  I used the distress crayons again on these and used our new 'Smile' die too!  Arent they cute!?  And we also released other mini stamp sets with will have a matching die.  Below are the ones we released:
And a stand alone die, 

Whew!!  How awesome of a release is THIS!!?

Gina K. Designs' Whats New  

Up first today is the new set from Melanie Muenchinger, Puppies Galore.  You KNEW it had to be coming after the kitties, right?  LOL!

Here is what I have done with this set so far:

For this little cutey I colored him with prisma pencils and gamsol.  And then the little paws i placed to look like he was holding a little sign over the edge there .  Then just did a bit of scoring after stamping the pawprints  on to the card base.

And next one is this one:
For this doggy I was trying to make him look 'rough'...the brown is suppose to be mud on him and he is sitting in a mud!  Did get all that from it?  ha!  billy didnt, lol.  psssfftt men....I used watercolor and pencils on this little guy.  I cut the 'hugs'  out two times once in black and then in the pink (matching the tongue, lol)  and just kinda offset it to give a shadow effect (affect?  gah!!  I always get them confused, lol!)  I digress  ...I also did a bit of distressing on the edges, layered a black cardstock at an angle on the card base also.  This set is sooo much fun!   And it can be used for all ages!  AND everybody loves Puppies!!  :D

Ok, next up is Beth Silaika's new set, For The Grad

Yep, that time of year again!  I really loving this set too.  (It can be used in the wreath set too! well, all stamps can, some do better than others, lol)  Here is what I have done today with it:

 I kept it one layer basically.  I stamped and heat embossed in gold the Dream Big, Class of and 2019.  I stamped the images in the corner and then just took a ruler and drew the lines like that.  The confetti pieces are stamped in gold ink.  Easy Peasy!  And then this one:

 I used the wreath builder with this one for the focal image, stamped in gold and then stamped the hats over that.  I also stamped some images of the diploma onto the card base and made the red tassle to hang from the corner to go along with the saying.  I got a nephew whos colors are red black and gold so this will be for him!  :D  Ok, one more with this set...had to do one, lol!

Well isnt that just plain looking mortarboard!!  Wait!!  Look below! 

When you open it you get this!  I just did a stamping with the wreath builder again.  this time using diplomas.  I used gold paper to give it some shine!  How fun is this?  I saw this like , oh , 5 years or so ago and made one way back then and just had to with this set again!  :D

ok, ready for some awesome eye candy?  I have no doubt my fellow DT will have some for you!  Just click on the links below to go to their blogs!
