Gina K Preview #3, JustRite and Free Stamps

I apologize in advance for the extra long post today. I double booked myself (for a good reason!) and I did not want to cut either post off early so I decided to post both together!

I created a simple one layer card with the new set from Alicia, which will be available tonight after the new release party here (from 7-10 p.m. central!)

Alicia's set is called Best Friends and I stamped the main image (isn't it awesome?!) on some of the new 120 lb Pure Luxury cardstock (which will also be available at Gina K Designs tonight!) with Memento tuxedo black ink and then colored it in with my Copic Markers. The sentiment I used on this card is from Rupa's new set My Cuppa Joe.

I layered color, used my blender pen, added more color and....

...flipped the card so you could see the inside....nothing showed through! Woohoo! I am so excited to make one layer cards that I can use my Copics on!

Materials used: Stamps-Best Friends, My Cuppa Joe (Gina K Designs); Memento tuxedo black; cardstock- Pure luxury 120 lb. (Gina K Designs), black (SU!); Copic Markers; ribbon-offray; Threading water punch (Fiskars).

Head on over to the other dt members' blogs to see their awesome peeks for today:

Courtney (In the Spotlight Designer)

and, of course, Gina K!

Hope to see you all at the release party HERE TONIGHT, Thursday, November 13 from 7 -10 p.m. central time for some contests, challenges, giveaways and more sneak peeks!


JustRite for Stamper's Dream

But, before you go, I would love to share another project--and a chance to win stamps!!! It is Just Rite week at Stamper's Dream. All week the fabulous designers from the Dream Team are showcasing cards and projects. You can find the line up HERE....and you can also enter to WIN a JustRite Christmas Stamp Ensemble and the Classic Circle Stamper III just by answering a question on Michelle's blog!

Today, was originally the day that Laurie was going to post. Most of you know from reading it here or other places in blogland that her daughter is the rest of the team decided to all post today as a show of support and to let her know how much she is loved. (((Laurie)))

Here is my project for today. It is a little memo holder. The memo pad is just a mini legal pad that is cut in half. (Note: Office Max and other places that you can purchase these also have a production area and will cut the pads in half for you!)

I found this unfinished wooden box in Hobby Lobby and I just added a coat of paint and dressed it up with some Basic Grey designer paper.

I decorated the Pentel RSVP pen with the same paper. The finishing touch is the "With Love" sentiment from the Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II Stamp Ensemble. I love the scripted look to this sentiment.

Here is a close up look at it. I added some rubons over the stamped words and added two large red brads on either side.

Here is a picture with the notepad and pen out of the box!

Materials used: Stamps-Harmony Classic Circle Stamper II (JustRite Stampers); Memento black ink; Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle nestability dies; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); black paint; wooden box; mini legal pad; chipboard heart (SU!); rub-ons- Stampin' Up!; Pentel RSVP pen; Designer paper-Cupcake (Basic Grey); cardstock-white (80lb Pure Luxury Gina K Designs); Modge Podge; red brads (American Crafts).
