Hip Hip Hooray! The Previews have begun!

Are you as excited as I am about new stamps - and other things from GinaK Designs? I'm thrilled with everything this month and can't wait to show off all the new stamp sets we'll be releasing along with ink pads and cardstocks .... not to mention a brand new StampTV kit!

Tonight we're starting off with Melanie's newest stamp set called Sporty Accessories and it's perfect for any sports enthusiasts - or anyone, for that matter. Thus, my first card today...


When I saw these images, I thought what a fun get well card this could make for a girlfriend. It's a little nontraditional, yes, but is sure to put a smile on someone who is feeling under the weather, don't you think?

Here's the full card...


Next up is a card for a boy. I was thinking of someone trying out for a team or even a card to give to a teenager who is dealing with issues with school or teenage stuff... (ugh - remember those days!?)


I love those sneakers!! They were so fun to color and I can tell that they'll be used a lot for many different occasions. I kept the card simple because I really wanted the sneakers to shine through as the focal point. I colored the sneakers with Copics and Sakura Glitter pens and then covered the entire image with a layer of Crystal Lacquer. It just pops!

Be sure to take the time to check out everyone else's blogs to see all the fabulous projects they've made with Melanie's stamp sets...

Great cards, Jessica. I love the fun colors of the first, perfect for the theme. And the way you pop those shoes are amazing. Can't wait to see the rest of the sneak peeks.

Oh get owwwwt!
I adore those 'sneaks'!
And I love your first card as well! I'm not even a 'sporty' gal ... until my little ones grow even 'more'! (I have no wish for time to 'hurry'!) Jessica, these cards are definitely 'enticing' without 'cause'! You GO girl!

I love your cheer up card. I thought about the same kind of card. Your card would definately cheer someone up. And the sneaker card is a fabulous masculine card for a teen boy.
