And the sneak peeks begin...

Good morning!

Whoo hoo! New GinaK stamp sets are being revealed tonight! There is such a wide variety of stamps being released this month, I'm sure there's something for everyone this month! Besides stamps, Gina has lots of other fun things up her sleeve that I KNOW you're going to love as much as I do!

And one of those new things is the ultimate White Cardstock!!! Can I just say, White Cardstock that's so thick and smooth that you think you're holding 2 pieces of paper when it's really only one.... and it's a dream to color on with Copics and Koh-i-noor pencils.... and it embossed beautifully... hmmm.... it's so awesome!!



My first card shows a sentiment from Gina's Seasonal Sayings stamp set. I really like this set - all sentiments so they will work with any Christmas stamp set you own. I paired it with this Queen & Company Felt Snowman Border sticker and some new DCWV Christmas paper. This card was so quick and easy - perfect for all the Christmas cards I still have to start making!


Take a look at those Carolers... aren't they funky? Well, I guess they should be since they are from another stamp set of Gina's being showcased tonight called Funky Christmas! All the images are so quirky and fun to play with. This is definitely not your typical Christmas set, but that's what makes it fun to me!

I colored the images with Copic Markers and highlighted some of the areas with Spica Glitter pens. Do you see those snowflakes along the side of the card? Yep, they are from this set too! I stamped them in Memories White ink - this is a really nice white ink that dries quickly and doesn't need to be heat set.

My last card is from one of my most favorite sets that Rupa has ever made.... yes, I know I say that every month - work with me! LOL! I don't even drink coffee (I always say that I'm not old enough to drink it yet... heehee...) but I am in love with each and every image Rupa included in her Cuppa Joe stamp set! You are going to flip out when you see the entire set!!!

I used Basic Grey's Mellow paper for this card. I think it may be my favorite Fall paper pack right now. I'm really loving the warm, distressed colors and patterns in this paper pack - it's perfect for the season. The big brad has a sentiment from the stamp set stamped in Black stazon so that it wouldn't smear.

I colored the cup with Copic Markers and then tried to add as many layers of paper as I could! I think hibernation is setting in here in Wisconsin... today it never got above 34 degrees!! Layers are a good thing right about now - even on my cards! LOL!

So, there are all my first day's sneak peeks, but be sure to check out everyone else's blogs to see all the beautiful projects everyone has been working on! I'm sure you'll be starting your wishlist...
