Gina K Illustrator Hop and Release Party Invite

Good Morning! Today the Gina K Designs Illustrating team is inviting you to our Release Party, which will be held tonight from 7-9 p.m. Central time on StampTV!


Today, the illustrators and some of the design team have put together a little invitation hop for you! This hop features stamps that will be released tonight! So come hop along with us and don't forget to add a comment on each blog...we will pick an random winner to win an awesome grab bag of Gina K Design goodies!!   All of the new sets will be available tonight after the release party at Gina K Designs!  My new set is called Elegant Flourishes.  I have always been drawn to flourishes and I have combined many of my favorite aspects of them to create a versatile set to use as a card focus or as a background or accent.

For my samples today---I created a few cards to show you just a few things you can do with this set.  This set also works so well with all of your other stamp sets and I will be showing you lots more samples pairing it with the new Gina K stamps next week on the blog hops!

For my first card, I wanted to use the flourish as the main focus of the card--I stamped it with Moonlit Fog ink and then punched a star and popped it on top.  I used a sentiment from Lots of Lines to finish off the card:


Next, I used the flourish (stamped in Red Hot ink) as a little accent behind the punched Christmas tree.  The sentiment is from the new set called Stamper's Favorites.

For my final card, I wanted to show you a flourish that doubles as greenery-- I stamped the flourish on the cardstock and then punched a vase to place over it. I added some flowers and rhinestones and pearl accents to finish up the focal image.  I stamped a sentiment from the new set--Vertical Greetings- in the corner.
 
Start hopping and be sure to leave a comment!!

 The full reveal of all the new sets and products happens tonight  at 7 p.m. central time in the Stamp TV Release Party Forum.   Join us for Challenges, Contest Questions, Design Team Samples, Full Stamp Set Reveals and, of course, party chit chat!!! 

All new products will be loaded to the store in the What's New section at that time.   And, next week---look for the design team's inspiration hops Monday-Wednesday, which will show you lots of fabulous ways to use all of the new release stamps. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you like my new set!

A girl after my own heart. Whenever I search any shopping site I always begin with flourishes, you can do so much with them. I have never thought of using them for greenery though. What a cool idea and I definitely am going to try that. All you cards look just amazing. Love them!!
