Preview Day 1: Tami and Theresa's sets!

Good evening!

GinaK previews have begun! We have tons of new stamps and products being released this Thursday night - it's been fun getting ready for this release and I can't wait to see everyone's samples this week.

Tonight, I'm going to start off by showing our newest Illustrator - Tami Mayberry' Special Delivery and her Special Delivery Add-on stamp sets since I used them both on this card ...

Isn't that fun? There are a lot of possibilities with her coordinating stamp sets - I can't wait to share my other card with her set... but that will have to wait until Thursday night's release party..

Here's the inside of this card...

And, here's a quick treat pouch I made with the medium sized pillow box that we will be adding to Gina's store on Thursday. There will be 3 sizes - small, medium and large! Perfect for gift giving - I know I'm looking forward to playing more with them.

I stamped the hearts from Tami's set in pink Stazon and set aside to dry. Then, I stamped the two hearts on GinaK's white cardstock and punched out with EK Success' medium heart punch - look at what a perfect fit it is for that punch! I layered it on pink cardstock and trimmed around for a small bordered edge.

The nuggets are wrapped in a 1" x 3" strip of cardstock and then taped to a piece of cardstock that I slipped into the pillow box. Super quick and easy - I love sweet little gifts like these, don't you?

Next up is Theresa's GORGEOUS Christmas set called A Very Merry Christmas. The images in Theresa's set are so elegant that I decided to forgo coloring and emboss the images with some Detail Gold embossing powder.

Christmas cards need to be quick for me because I make so many of them - so this layout and design is perfect for my needs... in fact, this may be one of my Christmas cards this year! I had the hardest time getting a decent photo of this card - so I hope you can see the texture of this new All Spruced Up linen cardstock being added to GinaK's Pure Luxury line. I LOVE this color and the texture... it's so rich and Christmas-y to me!

and the inside...

I made a coordinating gift tag with the same supplies as the card above. I love it when things coordinate and the best way I've found to coordinate things is to do it all at once - lol! Otherwise, when the times comes to give the card/gift ... I'm too lazy to dig through my supplies to make a tag match!

It's all ready to be tied onto a gift bag for a Christmas gift!
