Gina K. Designs Preview Day #1....And Some WCMD blog candy!

Today begins the first preview day for Gina K Designs! Gina will be releasing the new sets after the release party HERE on Thursday night from 7-10 p.m. (central time).

The first set I am previewing is one by Rupa Shevde called The Magic of Christmas! This set is gorgeous---filled with so many elegant holiday stamps it will make your head spin. (In fact, I really had a hard time deciding what to use for the preview!)

The two different snowflakes are from the set as well as the gorgeous Dove and the sentiment. (The dove stamp actually has greenery in his mouth but I just cut that part off for my sample!)

REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION
I really wanted to make an elegant card for this preview so I kept the design very simple. I love all the gold accents.

One of my favorite parts of this card is the gorgeous RIBBON!!! Wow--I ADORE it. Gina K is releasing an assortment of beautiful ribbons in her store on Thursday too, along with some other awesome embellishments, clear boxes, cd cases...etc.

Materials used: Stamps-The Magic of Christmas (Rupa Shevde for Gina K Designs); cardstock-white, brushed gold (Stampin' Up!); Designer paper-Blitzen Collection-Polar Blue, ? Snowflake (Basic Grey); ribbon (Gina K Designs); Copic Marker; gold embossing powder, clear embossing powder (Stampin' Up!); Heat tool; Versamark; Spellbinders decorative photo corner Shapeablities die, ribbon tags trio ; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); dimensionals (SU!).

Check out the other design team member's blogs to see what they are previewing today!!!
and of course, Gina Krupsky!
