Day 3 Sneak Peeks....

Good morning!

So, how are you liking all the sneak peeks so far? Haven't they been fabulous!?!

Tonight we're showing the last 2 stamp sets that will be available for purchase tomorrow evening after Gina's Release Party in her forum on Splitcoast. I hope you'll have your fingers ready to do some serious shopping Thursday night at 10:00 pm! heehee...

Aren't these trees cool? This image can be found in Gina's Free with Three stamp set this month called Winter Trees. The sentiment are lovely too and in such a beautiful font.

I wanted a very wintery feel on my card, so I pulled out a favorite technique that always seems so 'icy' - cracked glass! I did 4 layers of Glassy Glaze (SU's thick embossing powder) but added something different too - do you see the sparkle? After the second coating of the Glassy Glaze, I used one layer of SU's Irridescent Ice embossing powder. So cool... oops, I mean ICY!


I used the same DCWV paper pack that I've been playing with all week - I love the glitter and shine that this paper pack has. I punched out some EK Success Snowflakes and put a Clear Rhinestone in the center - because I am so addicted to those little gems! They are awesome!

The Scalloped Corner Punch is finally back in stock and I just had to add a little pop of blue and another snowflake to the upper left hand corner... love the touch that the photo corners add! I always adhere my corners with dimensionals, because I really like them to pop!

This last card shows an amazing new stamp set that Gina's daughter Alicia drew for us this month called Best Friends. I just love it and am in awe of Alicia's talent with drawing. I know many of the other peeks will show the adorable girl friends that she drew, but I was drawn to this adorable little iPod. Isn't it cute!?


I colored it with Copic markers and was thrilled to see how perfectly RainDots worked with it. Look - the heart RainDot fits over the heart on the iPod screen perfectly and the dial has a small circle RainDot too! This paper is from Basic Grey's Stella Ruby paper pack - look at those rich colors.

Here's the links to everyone else's blogs who are participating in tonight's sneak peeks...
