Preview Day 4

Welcome back to the last day of previews!  All week, the GinaK Design Team members have been sharing new stamps that will be available tomorrow night after the Release party on StampTV.  Tonight, we have 2 last stamp sets to talk about, so let's get right to it!

My first card shows of not only the Seeds of Kindness stamp set (which for a limited time includes my coordinating card kit for free with the purchase of the stamp set!) but also GinaK's new Free with Three stamp set called Versatile Verses.  I choose to use the spotlight technique on my large focal image - thanks to my friend Judy who suggested it would be perfect with this image!  Thanks, Judy!

Card Details
Stamps: Versatile Verses; Seeds of Kindness
Ink: Memento; Distress
Cardstock: GinaK
Other: Tim Holtz brick & cuttlebug leafy branch embossing folders; daubers; petite oval & label 10 spellbinder die; ribbon, circle punches

Because I only highlighted a small portion of the image, this card went together super fast!  If you haven't tried  the spotlight technique, you really should give it a go!  All you need are some circle or square punches and you're set!


My last preview card showcased Gina's new Blessed is the Season stamp set.  She decided to do a Christmas in July set - how fun is that?  I went quick and simple by stamping the snowflake in versamark ink and embossing with clear embossing powder to create my background.  Then I stamped the snowflake again in Vivid green ink and cut out with a spellbinder scallop circle die and finished off the card with lots of buttons and rhinestones.

Card Details
Stamps: Blessed is the Season
Ink: Vivid; Memento; Versamark

Other: Buttons; spellbinder scallop circle die; corner rounder; detail embossing powder, rhinestones; ribbon

We'd also like to invite you to attend our Release Party tomorrow night starting at 7 pm central on StampTV. There will be challenges, contest questions, and more samples from our designers on all the new stamp sets being released this month.  See you then for all the fun!

I really like the spotlight technique you used and the green and purple together make a great Christmas card with non-traditional colors.
