Day 2 Previews: School Themes!

Welcome to day 2 of our GinaK Designs previews! Tonight we are showcasing two new stamp set that will be available Thursday night after the Release Party.

My first cards are made with another new stamp set designed this month by Melanie Muenchinger called Sports, School, Spirit! and it coordinates perfectly with her Just so Sporty & Sporty Accessories stamp sets! (of course it would, right? You know how Melanie likes to design her sets too work beautifully together!)

My first card shows several new images along with the locker image from her Sporty Accessories stamp set...


I stamped the locker on GinaK's Soft Sand and the duffel bag on GinaK's Green Apple cardstocks and highlighted the stamped lines with a few Warm Grey Copic Markers. The banner is from the Sporty Accessories too - but the sentiment is new! I love how much fun it is to piece these images together to make scenes! (I forgot to take a photo of the inside of this card - oops!)

Next, is this awesome letter jacket Melanie has included in her new set... (once again stamped on Green Apple & highlighted with some Warm Grey Copic Markers)

This is a gatefold card - so it was a little hard to get a good photo of the front of it. Here's the inside view with the new basketball hoop images paired with some images from Sporty Accessories...

This is such a fun set to add to your collection! It's going to be fun building scenes for all those sports fanatics out there!

The other new stamp set that we're showcasing tonight is from Rupa Shevde called Back to School. Seriously, I LOVE this stamp set!! This set of images are so realistic and just what I wanted when I asked her last Fall for a school stamp set. Rupa, you are the BEST!! It's a long time in the making - but so WORTH it!!

Just check out this microscope:


I hope you can see from the close up view that I colored the entire image with a variety of Toner Grey Copic markers along with the Glitter Pen & Glaze pens from Sakura. I wanted the focus to be on the image completely, so I kept the rest of the card super simple. The inside is very basic as well, so I didn't even take a photo of it to share with you.

Next, is this awesome stack of books:

I paper pieced the books and apples with some of the papers from this Die Cuts with a View school paper pack. Once again, some Copic Grey markers, Glitter Pen & Clear Glaze pen were used to shade the images.

Here's the inside view - I love the sentiments that Rupa and Gina included in this stamp set:
