Gina K Designs Preview Day #2 and more Blog Candy

Contest Closed. Random.Cara picked # 19 as the winner. Congrats to Leenda who said "Thanks for a second chance to win"

Hello!!
Welcome to Day Two of the Gina K New Release Previews! Today the design team is showing off two more sets that will be released on Thursday night at Gina K Designs.

The first set is called Friendship's Garden and is illustrated by Asela Hopkins. There are some classic flowers in this set that makes it a great set for just about any occasion.
Here is a tag I created with the set:
I stamped the flower on Pure Luxury cardstock and colored it with Copics and carefully cut it out and attached it to the tag with foam mounting tape. I tied on the little "Congrats" tag. I added the Threading water punched strip (Fiskars) along the bottom and some faux stitching around the edges. There are tiny adhesive rhinestones in the centers of the flowers. Finally, I added a hemp bow and finished the tag off with some of the new Nautical Netting that Gina will be adding to her store on Thursday night as well! (It goes great with nautical sets but, as you can see above, it also adds a fun texture to any project!)

Next, I want to share a card created with Out West, a fun western set illustrated by dt member and NEW illustrator Theresa Momber. This set is fantastic...a western MUST HAVE. Way to go Theresa!

Here is a card I created with it:
Wait till you see the rest of the images in this set! They are incredible. For this card, I paired the cowboy hat with the cactus---I thought it would be cute to have it hanging on it. Both images are stamped on Pure Luxury cardstock and colored with Copics. The sun is just a punched circle (Spellbinders circle Nestabilities) that I sponged and inked around the edges. I used a half circle shape (Spellbinders) to frame the main image. I added some hemp stitches on the side to add to the western feel of this.

I KNOW you are gonna want to check out the other previews...so head on over to these blogs to get some more peeks:
Asela Hopkins
Cindy Lawrence
Donna Baker
