Gina K Preview Day 3

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K previews. Wooohooo! By now you have seen peeks of all the new sets. Join us at the release party HERE --TONIGHT (Thursday!) from 7-10 p.m. central for full set reveals, more samples, challenges and PRIZES!

Here is a look at the new "Free with Three" set. It is called Wreath of Wishes and it comes with so many adorable sentiments that fit inside the wreath.

This card is pretty simple looking. I stamped the wreath on some Ivory Pure Luxury cs and then colored it with Prismacolor Pencils and Copics. I also stamped the wreath a second time on white cardstock. I colored the full blooms on the white, carefully cut them out and popped them up over the matching flowers on the ivory cs. Each flower has some crystal Stickles on them to make them sparkle.
I finished this card off by cutting out the center of the wreath and adding the sentiment. The mustard panel is one of the cardstock pieces that come in the Floral Frenzy kit. The ribbon is another part of the kit.

Supplies: Stamps-Wreath of Wishes (Gina K Designs); cardstock-ivory, white (Pure Luxury-Gina K Designs); mustard (Prism-from Floral Frenzy kit by Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers, Prismacolor pencils; Stickles-crystal (Ranger); Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities; Wizard; dimensionals (SU!); corner punch (CM); lace decorative corner punch (Fiskars) ; ribbon (Gina K Designs).

Next, Here is a peek at Melanie's new set, A Charmed Life. This set is so much fun and is jammed packed with stamps. The main image in this set is a big wine glass. It has many many many sentiments to go with it and also little charm images to hang off the bottom of the glass.

I figured a lot of the team would show you the set for the intended purpose--so I went in another direction. This set can work with many other stamp sets you already own.
For this sample, I used You Know You're Old When (By Gina K Designs) as the main image. I used two sentiments from A Charmed Life and I also added one of the charm images (little die) to the sentiment tag.

I love how these sentiments and charms work so well with the glass---AND also with many other sets. I always have a hard time making humorous/masculine cards and it made this one a piece of cake!

Supplies: Stamps-A Charmed Life, You know you're Old When (Gina K Designs); cardstock-pure lux white base weight and layering weight; Memento black ink; Copic markers; dp-Basic grey, Cosmo Cricket; fiber (Gina K -Floral Frenzy kit); paper piercing tool; tag punch, corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); word window punch (SU!); Cropadile.

How many of you out there have done that sentiment in crosssitch back in the early 80's. I have so many old Cross sitch pattern books. I like the way you cut out the whole for the sentiment to show through. Very pretty
