It's time for a new Gina K Designs Preview! Today, I am sharing projects from two wonderful new stamp sets that will be available from Gina K this Thursday night.
Tech Talk - illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger
Tech Talk is Melanie Muenchinger's latest set of amazing stamp designs. I am excited about this set because it will be so great for teens and guy cards. It is always hard to make cards for teens, but the hip, modern images and sentiments in this set are perfect for teens.
I used the laptop image, colored with Copics, and sponged the center (screen). Then I added two of the sentiments included in the set. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey Lime Rickey and the grey layer is sponged and then stamped with several of the "emoticons" from Tech Talk.
Check out the two new cardstock colors Gina is releasing this month! The blue layer is called Ocean Mist and the cardbase layer is called Crème de Menthe. I love these new colors.
Here is CAS card I did using Tech Talk. The clean lines in this set will be perfect for quick CAS cards. I stamped the coffee mug on Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight cardstock and colored it with Copics. Then I scored some accent lines, using my Scor-pal and added some self adhesive nail heads. Easy peasy and only took about 5 minutes to make.
Lovely Shelf - illustrated by Nina Bracket
Nina Bracket has created such a beautiful, elegant set of images! There is so much to choose from in this set, a fabulous scroll shelf, teapot, multiple vases of flowers, beautiful sentiments and more. It is packed full of gorgeousness! More details about my card below, but for now...

We also have two of our special Center Stage Spotlight Designer's joining us with samples as well:
To make my Lovely Shelf card, I started by stamping one of the flower vases and colored with Copic markers. I used RV29 toward the center of the petals.
Used my blender pen to help spread the ink toward the highlighted areas.
On the stem and leaves, I started with G28.
Used my blender pen to again, allow the ink to spread into the highlighted areas.
Used Y17 for the flower centers, C3 for the vase and B00 with the blender pen for the water.
I used my rectangle Nestabilities to cut out the image and sponged Creamy Caramel ink (SU) while still in the die, then used C1 to add a shadow near the bottom.
I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss and Ivory, and SU Pretty in Pink. The designer paper is from Basic Grey Bittersweet. I used my Martha Stewart lace border punch along the bottom and added self adhesive pearls.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with two more previews, one of which is my new set! Have a great day!!!
