Gina K Preview Day #4!!! Release Tonight!!

Hello! Welcome to Day 4 of the Gina K Release Preview.

First of all, thank you so much for all your sweet comments and emails regarding my new set. Totally made my day!!! ((HUGS))

Today, the design team is previewing the new set called Not Forgotten...a sentiment set full of the perfect expressions of sympathy. What makes this set so unique? It was designed so that you can send a little bit of love to someone who has lost a loved one on anniversaries, holidays or any time they might especially need to hear them....

So many people send cards when they hear that a person's loved one has passed away...but there are so many moments that come later where a card would bring such comfort.

This set couldn't have come at a better time for me...
My grandmother passed away almost a year ago...and I know my mom will need extra support when the anniversary of her death is here. Mamo LOVED the beach, in particular, the Jersey shore, where she and my grandfather had a home.

.....So I paired the Not Forgotten set with Rupa's Guiding Light set to make this:

A card that will let my mom know I am thinking of her and will hopefully bring a smile to her face.
The images are stamped on Pure Luxury Cardstock and colored with Copics. I framed the sentiment by first stamping the seagull image and then placing a Spellbinders Nestability circle over the image (partially). Then I used a pencil to trace the circle. After removing the die, I cut out the inside of the circle (making sure to not cut out the places where the image was.) Very easy!

I used a piece of the Nautical Netting that Gina will be carrying in her store on Thursday night. It goes perfectly with these images.

<------Here is the inside of the card. The sentiment reads "May your wonderful memories be a source of comfort for you today." Love that!

Note: Gina will be carrying some fantastic new digital paper packs in the store too. One of them is called Jersey Shore and goes perfectly with these images. (My printer is very sick right now so I was unable to play with them....but I will....they are wonderful!)

Beautiful card & especially poignant for me right now as I lost my mom just two weeks ago. My father was in the Coast Guard, too, so nautical type items are apropos as well. Thanks!

Tracey said...

A stunning card Cammie. This is a fantastic set to help you find the words at times when it is so tough.

Linda said...

That guiding light set with this new one is fantastic. I know those are on top of the list. The firsts are hard.. but heck.. the 25ths are too... after losing my brother going on 26 yrs., I still feel the pain but yes the memory of him is fresh in my heart. This set is special.
