Gina K January Previews Begin!!!

Well it's a new Year and..... what better way to start the new year than with NEW stamps!!!!  Tonight Gina K Design's Team is previewing the first of the new January releases.  Are you ready?  Let's get started!!

Introducing Melanie Muenchinger's, "Where Your Heart Is"

Love, love, love this set!!!  You will find just what you need to remind that special someone of your love.

I started my card with Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Weight soft sand card stock.  I layered it with some ivory layering weight card stock.  My image was stamped with Versamark on top of Gina's Gold Metallic card stock and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  When I look at these hands I see love... so I simply stamped the "you" in the middle. 


For my second card I went for something more manly.  My husband drives truck over the road and I wanted something to let him know that we think of him and love him very much when he's away.  This set is perfect for just that card!!  

I started with a base of Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight cranberry tart card stock.  Next I put down a layer of the layering weight white card stock.  My DP is from the Basic Grey collection, Oliver.  I used my Copic markers to color in the hands and my sentiment is stamped on the Nestabilities Double Ended Tags and sponged some London Fog Memento ink around it before removing the tag.  I added self-adhesive Copper Nail heads to the ends.

Go check out what the rest of the Design Team has created for you today.
