Gina K Previews Begin....TONIGHT!

Hello! Welcome to the first night of Gina K previews!!! Get ready because there are some FABULOUS sets that will be released on Thursday night!!

Tonight the design team is working with Wild at Heart (by Melanie), Grand Damask and Fanciful Tags (by Nina).
Here are my designs:

For my first card I used Nina's Grand Damask to create this butterfly. I wanted to use the set in a different way and because it is such an elegant set...I tried to create something whimsical and fun with it: The dotted swirls so reminded me of bug antenna so I went with that and used the flourishes as wings. I used part of a sentiment from Fanciful Tags for the sentiment.

The next card uses Melanie's Wild at Heart set:
I adore this set and know I will use it a lot! I wanted to use white space to make the flowers pop more so I cropped the image of the wildflowers so that it would only cover 3/4 of the card. I love the bright POP of the Sweet Mango cardstock and crystal accents. Finally, I used a Copic marker to highlight a few words in the sentiment.

For more samples with the stamp sets being previewed tonight, please check out these participating designer's links:


You are invited to join us for our release party this Thursday night, August 26 from 7-10 central time. There will be contest questions, challenges, and chatter along with tons more samples! All of the new products featured this week on our blogs will be available for purchase online through GinaK Designs at 10 pm right after the release party. We hope you'll be able to join us in all the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
