Gina k Preview Day 2 - With This Ring and Special Father

With This Ring

Today I am sharing sneak peeks at two new stamp sets for Gina K Designs, that will be released this Thursday, after the release party, from 7 - 10 PM in the Gina K forums at SCS. This first card is made using images from Rupa Shevde's newest set, With This Ring. Rupa's elegant style couldn't be more suited to creating a wedding/anniversary themed stamp set.

I stamped the cake on Vintage Silver Lustre Text (Paper Temptress) paper and colored it with Copic markers. I used a pink Copic Atyou Spica glitter pen to color the flowers and added a dot of white in the centers with my Sakura white gel pen.

I sponged the pink layer and added self adhesive pearls. The ribbon is from Gina's Pure Luxury Holiday ribbon assortment. I used my Martha Stewart lace border punch on another layer of the Silver Lustre paper and used Regal Rose (Stampin' Up) for the cardbase.

On the inside of my card, I stamped another gorgeous image from With This Ring, using Regal Rose ink, then added my sentiment over the image.

Special Father

My next card is created using images from Special Father, drawn by Gina K Designs', newest illustrator, Nina Brackett. This is a wonderful set of images and sentiments that are just in time for Father's Day.

I stamped my image on Pure Luxury White layering weight cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I layered it with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, then added a Bashful Blue (Stampin' Up) layer that was sponged with Ballet Blue ink.

I added some piercing around the main image panel and adhered to cardbase using the new Pure Luxury cardstock, In the Navy.

On the inside of my card, I stamped the same image, using Ballet Blue ink and added a sentiment stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Two New Pure Luxury Colors

This month, Gina is releasing two new Pure Luxury colors, In the Navy and Rocket Red. The red is a textured cardstock and the navy is smooth like the Chocolate Kiss and Black Onyx. I've been wanting to show you a picture of Gina's cardstock, next to other cardstock you might be familiar with, so you could see how rich and deep the Pure Luxury cardstock is.

I have Stampin' Up cardstock, so that is what I used for a comparison. Sorry, I didn't include the white and ivory. But all the rest of the colors are there, including the two new colors. If you click on the photo (or any photos in this post) you can see a bigger picture.

Every time Gina has released a new color, I have been amazed at the depth of the color. The cardstock feels so luxurious and the colors are so intense. The photo doesn't really do justice to the difference, but hopefully it will give you some idea just how wonderful the Pure Luxury colored cardstock is.

To see some amazing projects using Special Father and With This Ring, visit the rest of the design team and be sure to start at Gina's blog for a chance to win one of these gorgeous new stamp sets.
