Gina K Preview Day 3

Hello!!! Welcome to Day 3 of the Gina K Designs previews. Tonight the design team is previewing these new sets--Winter Friends (Rupa Shevde) and Signed with Love (the new One Free with Three set).


Here is a slider card I created with Winter Friends:
REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION

The minute I saw this gliding penguin, I wanted to make a slider card with him. The little houses/scenery in the set make the perfect backdrop for this cutie.

Here is a another view---just to show you he made it to the other side ok! A slider card is perfect for this stamp because he can wobble and tilt all the way across your card (just like most of us ice skate!)

I stamped the scene on layers of pure luxury white cardstock. The card base is the new Tan Leather (which has some beautiful texture!) It will be available on Thursday night too. The ribbon on the top of the card is from the Gina K Autumn Ribbon Assortment. I framed the scene with some rocket red cardstock.

I colored all the images with Copic markers and added some frosted lace stickles on the rooftops, trees and hills.

The sliding mechanism was created using a Word Window punch (SU!) to create the path. I used some dimensionals (SU!) to create the sliding penguin. (I used one on the penguin's back and then one on the other side of the punched strip and then added a punched circle so that the tab wouldn't stick to the inside. Note: I never use a penny on my sliders because I don't like the added weight and find that this way works just fine!) The penguin slides and turns easily!

Materials used: Stamps-Winter Friends (Gina K Designs), snowflakes from Holiday Cheer Stamp TV kit (Gina K Designs); ink-Memento black, bordering blue (SU!); cardstock-white, rocket red, tan leather (all Gina K Designs); designer paper-Jolly by Golly (Cosmo Cricket); ribbon (Gina K Designs); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); Copic markers; stickles-frosted lace (Ranger); red adhesive dots; word window punch (SU!); dimensionals (SU!); sewing machine.

We have a couple of our Center Stage Spotlight Designers joining in the previews tonight. Here are their blog links:

I have always wanted to make a slider card... Love this one!! Such a darling card!! Thanks for the additional idea of not using a penny! I think that is why I never have made one... It does add such a weight!
