Gina K Previews - Day 4

Hello! It's our fourth and final day of previews and that means the party is tonight and all the stamp sets previewed this week go on sale at Gina K Designs, at 10pm central! Today we are showing two more stamp sets. First up is the new Free With Three set, called Smile. Starting tonight at 10pm, and until the next release in February, this set will be free with the purchase of any three stamp sets. This is one of my all time favorite free sets. It is so cute! More details on this card below.

Next up is an elegant and trendy new set from Nina Bracket, called Gleefully Yours! This set is so fun! I love all the silhouette images and fun, funky sentiments. I stamped the image with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped with Jet Black Stazon. I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Good As Gold card stock.

For more inspiration, check out the following designers blogs...
Tonight is the release party at StampTV, from 7-10pm Central. I hope you'll join us for lots of chatting, contest questions, challenges and full stamp reveals.

I stamped the trees with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers, starting with YG21.

Added YG23.

Added YG25.

Then added YG07.

On a Pure Luxury Heavy White card base, I used a sticky note, which I had cut a crescent into, to mask an area. Then using Memento New Sprout, I sponged a little mound on the card base.

I removed the mask, then stamped the flower/sun using Memento Cantaloupe ink.


I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and added the trees using Pop Dots.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!
