Day 1 Preview: Gifts from Sea and Oh Boy!


Welcome to my blog!

Tonight starts the Preview week for GinaK Designs - whoohoo!  We're showcasing 2 new stamp sets each night leading up to the Release party that will once again be held at StampTV on Thursday night.  After the party, all the stamp sets shown on our blogs this week will be available for purchase at GinaK's online store.


The first stamp set I'm featuring is Oh Boy! illustrated by Tami Mayberry.   It has the most adorable images in it as you will see tonight on all the designer's blogs.  I chose to use the sailboat image ...



Card Details
Stamps: Oh Boy!; O Baby
Cardstock: GinaK; K&Co patterned; Felt
Ink: Memento and Distress Inks
Other: Copics; paper punch; ribbon; Spellbinder's Nestability dies Labels 6 and Deckled Long Rectangle; Sewing Machine




********* Gifts from the Sea by Melanie Muenchinger ***********



Next, is my card using the gorgeous Gifts from the Sea stamp set.  I wanted to make a card that would be good to use for either a man or a woman, so I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  I really like how this one turned out...

We'd love to have you join us for our monthly party!  Enjoy the hop!
