Tonight starts the previews of 8 new stamp sets and 5 new card kits that will be available for purchase this Thursday, September 30th after the StampTV release party at 10pm central. We're starting off with stamp sets illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger and Nina Brackett.
Buds and Vases by Melanie Muenchinger
Melanie has once again designed a beautiful stamp set that I just KNOW you're going to love! I've been waiting for a long time for some containers to put her gorgeous flower images in, but even better than that, she has added a couple more flowers to the set too! This arrangement is my favorite, so I just had to use it on my preview card for tonight. Look closely - can you see the crystal lacquer on the jar and the leaves as well as the yellow glitter stickles on the center of the flowers?
Stamps: Buds and Vases (GKD)
Ink: Memento; Vivid aqua
Cardstock: GinaK kraft, violet, asparagus, white; Basic Grey Basics White
Other: Sewing machine; Copic markers; daubers; Memento markers; EK Success border punches; crystal lacquer; SU tag punches and ribbons; stickles
Lovely Labels 2 by Nina Brackett
Finally, the long anticipated newest Lovely Labels 2 stamp set is available for purchase! Nina designed the set to specifically coordinate with several new Spellbinder Nestability dies - some of which she herself has designed too! Are we lucky to have her on our GKD team, or what!? The possibilities are truly endless with this HUGE stamp set and I KNOW you're as anxious as I was to add this stamp set to your collection!
I choose to be a bit 'scrappy/shabby chic' on my preview card tonight, taking the color cues from this yummy October Afternoon patterned paper colors...

The best part about this stamp set and all the other brand new stamp sets available through GinaK Designs this month: DIE CUT stamp sets! (important note: The only stamp sets that will be available in the die cut category will be the 8 new stamp sets released on September 3.)

This card kit was designed to work with GinaK's Autumn Leaves stamp set. I love the colors and the textures the stamps and the papers bring to this seasonal kit. The kit includes all the cardstock, ribbons, and brads as well as the measurements to complete these 6 projects shown in the photo above.
For all my local readers, have you heard the exciting news that the retail store is being revamped to make it available for longer, more customer friendly hours!? The online store and shipping department has been moved to a huge warehouse. So, I'm thrilled to announce that I will be able to teach classes again as well! I will be posting my class schedule here on my blog and Gina will be emailing it out to everyone who has signed up for email updates. I am planning on offering a variety of class times, to suit as many people as we can: day time, evening, and an occasional Saturday too. So, look for that class list for October to be posted soon!
