Gina K Preview - Vintage Backgrounds and Masculine Messages

It's day four of the Gina K Designs previews, and today, we are showing peeks of two more new stamp sets, Vintage Backgrounds, from Nina Brackett and Masculine Messages, the new Free with Three set from Gina K.

On this first card, I used two of the background images from Vintage Backgrounds. I stamped the dots background, using pigment white ink, on the Bubblegum Pink cardbase. I used another of the background images to create that pretty header at the top of the card. These gorgeous backgrounds are going to be perfect for making your own color coordinated backgrounds for your cards!

On this card, I used Vintage Borders again, combined with the new Free With Three set, Masculine Messages and the fishing fly from Gone Fishing.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from Masculine Messages and created the newsprint background with another image from Vintage Backgrounds.


To create the background on the front of the cardbase, I cut a mask in scratch paper, using my rectangle Nestabilities. Then I used re-positionable tape to hold it in place and stamped the background image with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.



For more inspiration, check out the Designers Participating in Previews tonight:

The Release Party is tomorrow night on StampTV. We would LOVE to have you join us for the fun!

There will be challenges, contest questions, chatter, as well as tons of samples from the Design Team members from 7-10 (central time) all leading to the new products being available in GinaK's online store at 10pm.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
