Gina K Preview Day 1

Hello!!! Welcome to the first night of Gina K Designs previews! For the next few days the design team will be sharing some awesome new things that will be available on Thursday night!

Today, we are showing off two new sets...Hope is Faith and Hang in There (illustrated by Theresa Momber)!

The Hope is Faith mini stamp set retails for $9.95. It was created to raise money for the Red Cross to help with the devastation in Haiti. $2.00 of every purchase of this stamp set will be sent directly to the Red Cross throughout the month of February.
As the first responders to disasters around the world, the Red Cross is there to help with the basic needs of these people who have suffered so much. By purchasing this mini set, you will help to make a difference to people who are desperate by supporting an organization that works tirelessly to feed, clothe, comfort and care for those in need.

Here is my card I designed with this set:

I used some of the lovely lavender cardstock for the card base, scoring it with my Scor-Pal to give it the lattice look. I used some ribbon from the new Spring ribbon assortment and some jute twine on the bottom of the card.

I created the panel with some designer paper and added the greenery from Theresa's new set-Hung in There. I inked the edges of the layer before mounting it on the black cardstock. I stamped the butterfly in Memento ink and colored it with copic markers. When the card was assembled, I added some crystal stickles around the edges.

Next, I created a circle card to feature one of the fun little critters in Theresa's adorable Hang in There set:

For this card, I used a circle cutting system to cut the circle shape from some creme de menthe cardstock. I added the greenery with some olive ink. I stamped the frog image and colored it with copics and prismacolor pencils. Then, I used a circle die to trace the shape and cut the image freehand to keep the leaves intact. I layered the image on some tan leather cardstock.The stamped sentiment and hemp tie complete the design.

See you tomorrow for more previews! Thanks for stopping by!

Buying memory cards is such a time consuming process... You have to Google prices, sort through which ones are legit, go out to a bunch of stores,compare prices, finally buy your memory, and then constantly pray that the price doesn't fall in the next month or so.

I've been done in by some ridiculous price drops in the past... especially this one time when I bought a Micro SD for my DS flashcard at what I thought was a bargain price, only to later see that it fell $5 in a week's time.
