Gina K Previews - Day 2

Hi all. Today we are sharing two new stamp sets for Gina K Designs. First up is my new set, Fanciful Fall. I drew this set to work for Halloween/Fall, but kept most of the images stylized to work for any season.

Next, is a new set from Tami Mayberry, called So Groovy. You'll love the retro hip images and fun greetings in this set! I'll repost this card next week and show you how I colored the van and made that rainbow background.

For more samples with tonight's new stamp sets, please visit these participating designer's blog links:
The entire team would like to cordially invite each of you to our release party this Thursday night, September 30.  We'll have contest questions, challenges, chatter, and lots of samples with the new stamp sets to share during the party. Please make plans to join us from 7-10 central on StampTV!


To make the first card, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink on my background, starting from the bottom and working my way up about 2/3 the way.

I cut a circle from scratch paper and adhered it to the background to mask off a moon shape. Then I sponged Memento Tangelo.

Next, I sponged Memento Angel Pink as a transition color between the yellow and purple.

Sponged Memento Lulu Lavender from the top until it met the pink.

Sponged Memento Grape Jelly.

Then I sponged Memento Tuxedo Black, very lightly around the edges.

Removed the mask and stamped the tree with Stazon Black.

Next, I inked up the wavy grass with Memento Potter's Clay, stamping off on scratch paper once before stamping on the background. Then I repeated several times to fill the bottom.

I stamped the sentiment with black, then layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Vibrant Purple. The card base is Sweet Mango.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with more previews. Have a wonderful day!
