Gina K Preveiw - Hugs and Prayers and Seeds of Kindness

Hello! It's day three of previews for Gina K Designs and today we have two more stamp sets to share with you. First is a gorgeous new set from Nina Brackett, called Hugs and Prayers. I love the elegant style of these images! (step by step photos below)

Next is the new card kit set from Gina K, called Seeds of Kindness. This set has beautiful plant images, along with coordinating sentiments, and, for a month, it will come with a free card kit! I colored the African Violet with Copics and then cut it out. The designer paper is from the DCWV pack, called Latte.

For even more samples with the stamp sets being previewed today, check out these designer's links:
We'd also like to invite you to attend our Release Party this Thursday, July 1st starting at 7 pm central on StampTV! There will be challenges, contest questions, and more samples from our designers on all the new stamp sets being released this month! We'd love to have you join in on the fun!

To make the background for the Hugs and Prayers card, I first sponged a bit of Memento Cantaloupe ink near the bottom, using my Jumbo Sponge Dauber.

Next, I sponged some Memento Angel Pink around the Cantaloupe (sorry, I didn't get a photo of that step). Then I sponged Memento Summer Sky all around and blending into the pink.

Sponged Memento Danube Blue.

I tore the end from Post-it Notes and used them to mask the top, so I could sponge the foreground with Memento Tuxedo Black.

I stamped the gorgeous silhouette flowers, from Hugs and Prayers, using Tuxedo Black.

The sentiment is also from Hugs and Prayers. Here is a peek at the photo I used as inspiration for this card.

Thanks for coming by. More previews tomorrow and then the release party on Thursday! Have a great day!
