Hello, Welcome to Day #2 of the Gina K Previews. If you missed the first day, you should check them out---the cards were wonderful.

****And...just in case you missed the exciting announcement yesterday----Gina K Designs will be offering all the new sets PRE-CUT!!! (woohoo!)

Tonight the design team is showing samples made with Fanciful Fall and So Groovy. These sets are so fun.

Here is a card I created with Fanciful Fall:I admit----I was so drawn to this set for the tree. It is just beautifully done...but there are so many other amazing images in the set that I am sure you will see as you hop around. I stamped the tree and then just added buttons and a metal heart on the branches. I added some patterned paper strips (American Crafts) and then stitched along the bottom. I finished it off with some jute twine.


...and, because I originally planned to be peeking last night as well (but had to change because of the Heart to Heart drive being posted yesterday)...here is a card I created with Buds and Vases:
This set comes with a mason jar image, a vase and a pot PLUS some beautiful foliage images. It is a super versatile set. The first thing that came to my mind when i saw the mason jar was a jar of pencils. So...I went with the idea and paired it with a previous release called Back to School to create a teacher thank you note. I used the paper clip image and the little apple from the Back to School set and I hand drew the pencils.
The sentiment is from a set that will be released on Thursday as well- Labeled with Love.
I used a strip of Report Card, October Afternoon paper along the top to finish off this simple card.

For more samples with tonight's new stamp sets, please visit these participating designer's blog links:

The Gina K team would like to cordially invite you to our release party this Thursday night, September 30. We'll have contest questions, challenges, chatter, and lots of samples with the new stamp sets to share during the party. Please make plans to join us from 7-10 central on StampTV!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cammie-Both of your samples are terrific. Great job on the pencils-too bad that's not a stamp, since I don't think I could draw them as well as you.

For some reason I'm having a lot of trouble making comments? Let me try again. I love your cards. I'm always drawn to trees for some reason... maybe it's the idea of long life... or what that tree has 'seen' in it's time. Well whatever, I just love them.
