Preview Day 2: Warm & Wonderful and Life is Good

Good evening!

It's day 2 of Preview week for GinaK Designs! My first card features Rupa Shevde's Warm & Wonderful stamp set. All the wintery images are so adorable - I know you're going to love them all! I decided to use the sled on my first card and stacked some gifts from Rupa's Winter Friends stamp set.

Card Details Stamps: Warm and Wonderful Ink: Black Versafine; Vivid Tuscan Tan Cardstock: GinaK Green Apple and white; October Afternoon Farm Fresh dp Other: Copics, liquid applique; glitter; sponge daubers; Nestabilities: circles & Labels 3; twine; GinaK stitched ribbon; bow easy; Sakura Glitter pens; pearls

and the inside - just look at the hat & set of mittens! CUTE!!

And, here is the class card that will be available as a kit for the Warm & Wonderful stamp set. I will also provide an alternative sample for those of you who don't own nestability dies. This card features two of our new cardstock colors: Ocean Mist and Creme de Mente.

I'll talk more in length about all the class kits that will be available with the new stamp sets released later this week on my blog.

Next up, let's talk about Theresa Momber's fabulous new Life is Good stamp set - I LOVE the images in this set of hers and can only imagine the amazing scenes she is going to be creating with them!

For my first card, I chose this amazing train image that Theresa drew - think Polar Express or any train collector's dream image!

Isn't this fun? I used the Nestability Labels 7 dies to make the focal images appear as a book...

Card Details
Stamps: Life is Good; Are we There Yet?
Cardstock: GinaK black & white; DCWV dp
Ink: Black Versafine; Vivid Tuscan Tan
Other: detail clear embossing powder, copics, sponge dauber; SU ribbon & clip; GinaK neutral buttons; Nestabilities Labels 7; twine

and the inside - with the sentiments from Rupa's Are We There Yet?

And, here is the class card for the Life is Good stamp set - I love this image and sentiment together...

I purposely kept the colors neutral, so that this card could work for a guy or gal friend. And, as always, the sentiment can be switched out with another one, if desired. And, like my other Class Card kits, all the consumable materials (paper, ribbons, embellishments) are included along with the written instructions to make 4 cards.

Great cards Jessica! Love the sled with the twine!

My favorites for both sets are the class cards you designed. Maybe it's the neutrality of the kraft paper that highlighting the sentiments. Not sure, but I know that I like them.

NinaB said...

Each one is beautiful, Jessica. Your DP choices are perfect with the images used.

Great snow and rope on the first card! Very clever using the die as a book for the train image card.
