Day 3: Eclectic Summer StampTV kit

The long awaited day is finally here: we get to show off the highly anticipated brand new StampTV kit! YAY! Gina is calling her kit, Eclectic Summer and it's complete with 2 stamp sets, fun ribbons & brads as well as Pure Luxury Cardstock in three colors: White, In the Navy, and Red Rocket cardstocks! Aren't those fun names? lol!

I have three cards to share today with the stamps from the new kit and they are all quite an eclectic mix of cards - so you'll see why she's named her kit that way! First up is an anniversary card in honor of my husband Brad and I celebrating our 13th anniversary today...

Isn't that fun? I paired the couple image with a sentiment from Rupa's new With this Ring stamp set (I've been begging for an anniversary sentiment from Gina and am thrilled we have one in this set!) along with the fireworks found in Gina's WhooHoo stamp set. The water is Gina's Navy cardstock torn and layered to make waves. And, check out those buttons... they are Stampin Up buttons, but I stamped them with a new stamp image that we'll be sharing in tomorrow's previews - so you get an early sneak peek!

Next up is this fun summery card showing off some of the patterned papers included in the StampTV kit along with an image from the sentiment set too...


I'm so excited to have this image in my collection! I sponged the background with some Distress Inks and some torn papers - it looks like it has layers of cardstocks, but it's really all GinaK's Pure luxury cardstock and ink! The balloons were colored with copics and then using the Quickie Glue pen and Doodlebug's colored glitters, I got them to sparkle like crazy!

Gina has a great video she uploaded to StampTV last week showing how easy it is to use Colored Glitters to embellish your images.
Finally, my last card shows off some new digital papers that are new to GinaK as well as more of the StampTV kit...


There are actually 3 different digital papers used on this card. The gorgeous green paper is from a new collection designed by Emily Giovanni called Bright Summer Grunge and I LOVE it!! The colors and patterns are so fun and perfect for summer!

The orange papers that I used for the focal image mat and to paper piece the butterflies (which by the way are SO adorable, aren't they!?) are from the new Sunlit Summer digital papers which is part of my Fun with Glitters Online StampTV class.

And finally, the purple paper is from Gina's Summer Fabrics digital papers. This paper is so cool - it's actually designed to be printed on GinaK's Pure Luxury White cardstock and then colored with Copics or shaded with inks to appear like fabric. I used some Purple Distress inks to shade the paper and loved how it turned out. It will be fun experimenting more with this paper.

There's lots of fun stuff going on today - more sneak peeks to check out as well as some new videos on StampTV to tune in to see. Gina will be explaining more about her StampTV - so be sure to tune in and hear it all from her!

See you tomorrow morning for one last day of previews before the Release Party!
