Day 3 Previews: Winter Friends & Signed with Love

Welcome to our last day of previews before the big party tomorrow night!

Tonight we are showcasing the last two new GinaK stamp sets being released this Thursday, October 29th: Winter Friends by Rupa Shevda and GinaK's Free with Three Signed with Love. My first card shows off some of the adorable images Rupa has included in her fun Winter Friends stamp set. I have another card that I really wanted to share with you tonight with her set but decided to wait until tomorrow night to share at the party & here on my blog... you know, because I LOVE to be a big tease! lol!

This stamp set has such fun images in it that were made to layer all together to make the perfect winter scenes! I love those houses behind the penguin - they are actually 2 separate images that I masked and stamped together. And, that penguin?? How adorable!!

How about this penguin decorating the inside of my card...

My daughter Ashley went nuts for that cute little puppy and the little bird too. I love every image in her set and know you'll see some amazing projects on the design teams blogs tonight!

Next up is a stamp set that has been requested over and over by lots of people - and Gina decided what better time to do it than at Christmas when we are all busy making handmade projects as gifts for everyone. And, best of all - it's free when you purchase any 3 stamp sets from GinaK Designs this month! I LOVE that!

You've already seen a couple of 3D projects of mine that I have been sharing this week - but here's one I haven't shown yet that I made with Asela Hopkin's First Christmas stamp set that we featured yesterday...

Once again, this is a paper-mache' ornament that I covered with patterned papers. The bear is stamped on GinaK's new Tan Leather cardstock and then shaded with some Copic markers and paper pieced together to make it a little more 3D. The hat has some white liquid pearls on it. You can see the dimension a little better in this photo...

The front is adorable - isn't it? But, look at the back! It's just as cute (at least I think so! lol!)

Gina has included lots of different phrases in her Signed with Love stamp set - I had a lot of fun experimenting and using them!

Remember this ornament I shared yesterday on my blog? Once again, I used Asela Hopkin's First Christmas stamp set ...

and, here's the back - with two different sentiments from GinaK's Signed with Love set...

It's such a professional touch to add to any handmade project! I'm always getting reminded by my family to sign my cards & projects - which I rarely do - so, this set will make that a lot easier and 'prettier' now! Thanks, Gina!!

Jessica your first card is fabulous. Love how you created the village behind the penguin. Your ornaments are beautiful, including the back. I am excited Gina now has the stamps in the free for 3 set. Great way to finish the back of your cards.

I agree with Ashley, that puppy is adorable! My husband is a vet and we send out sympathy and reminder cards to our clients -- this puppy will get a lot of use. Thanks for giving me some inspiration!
