Gina K Designs February Preview!!!

Are you ready???? Are you really??? I've heard lots of whispers from those Gina K Designs fans wondering where the February Releases are. Well... today's your day!!! THEY'RE HERRRREEEEE!!! Woot Woot!!

Today we start the February previews with Melanie Muenchinger's newest set...


Spring Basket....



OMGosh...  I got going with this adorable basket and I am telling you... I couldn't stop filling it!!!  My first card I couldn't help but debut it in purple!!!  I used Pure Luxury Vibrant Violet for my card base.  I layered a piece of Wild Dandelion and more violet.  My image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers.  I stamped the tulips and daffodils separately and pieced them together arranging them so they appeared to be freshly picked from my garden.  :-)  I mounted my basket of flowers to my Nestabilities Beaded Oval and used Tim Holtz Milled Lavender Distress Ink to bring out the "beads" a bit more.  I added a sheer flower print bow to my basket and rumbled the ends to make it appear to be flowing on my basket.

For my next card, I used Melanie's coordinating set....

Basket Blessings....



How cute are these animals??!!!  I am guessing by now you have seen many paper pieced stuffed animals and I admit, I HAD to use various yummy DP's to stamp these adorable images on.  As luck would have it... I needed just a card like this yesterday for my niece's baby shower!  

I began stamping my images onto the DP's and cut them out and paper pieced them back together.  Though it's hard to see in my photo, I stamped the basket and colored just along the sides a small amount of grey Copic marker to give it just a hint of a shadow because I wanted my basket to remain white.  My basket "liner" was also stamped on DP before added.  I used my Lacey Circle Nestabilitie to make my card base and shape.  My card base is Pure Luxury White and I layered with some Innocent Pink which I ran through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dot folder.  Everything was popped up on the card base using Pop Dots. 


The inside of my card shows a flower image also from the Spring Basket set which I colored with Copics and added a small self-adhesive pearl to the center. 

Now follow the links to see more fabulous previews from the Design Team.
