Gina K Designs Preview Day 2

Hi everyone!! Wasn't last night's previews amazing??  I can't wait to see what everyone did with tonight's sets!  Once again... here we go!!!!

Announcing.... "Nesting" by Asela Hopkins

If you loved Asela's last set, "Winter Wings"... I KNOW you will adore this set as well.  I admit, I am so not the "nature" type person and when I first saw this set I had my doubts on how well I could present it.  But, as I started working with it, I found I was grabbing it more than I ever thought I would!! 

My first card uses Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Weight Kraft card stock.  I embossed it the front with my Cuttlebug Distress Stripes folder.  I lightly ran over the embossing with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye to bring it out just a bit more.  I colored the images with my Copic markers and used my Nestabilites, Deckled Rectangles to mount them.  The feather was stamped separately and then I cut it out and placed it on the rectangle.  I simply LOVE the buttons I used on the corner that came from the Chocolate Mix Button Jars.  This color set is perfect for those nature, manly cards.

Announcing... "The Giving Tree" by Theresa Momber


I was so excited to see this set if nothing more than the fact that it is one of my kids' favorite books!!!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!  For my card today I initially was going for a single layer card but decided to add the "grass" to it and then I raised my sentiment up with a bit of orange card stock under it.  I stamped my squirrel, birdhouse and bird on Gina K's Pure Luxury Layering Weight card stock and cut them out before adhering them to the tree.  I used my Copics to add a bit more texture to my bird and my Multi-Liner pen to throw on a dot for the bird's eye.  ;-) 

My grass was simply cut free-handed with my scissors and adhered to the base. 

Check out the rest of the design team previewing these wonderful sets tonight!
I hope you are planning to come to the Release Party over on Stamp TV on Thursday at 7:00 PM CST!  There will be tons of fabulous examples from the Gina K Design Team and I know you won't want to miss out on all the fun chatter and challenges!! 

Have a great evening! *smile*
