Preview Day 2: Fanciful Fall, So Groovy and Sandy Claws Card kit!

Welcome back to the second day of previews!

Tonight we are showcasing two more stamp sets and I have another card kit to share as well.  I'm so glad so many of you are as excited as I am about all the exciting events and opportunities coming soon through GinaK Designs.  Die Cut stamp sets, new stamp sets and card kits, classes available in the retail store in McFarland... eek!

Fanciful Fall illustrated by Theresa Momber

Theresa's new set is filled with beautiful images and sentiments like all her other stamp sets are!  I fell in love with this tree image and decided to use a couple of Memento markers to create a fall scene.  The pumpkin was colored with copics and then a layer of crystal lacquer was added to it for some added shine.

So Groovy illustrated by Tami Mayberry

Tami Mayberry's So Groovy stamp set is FUN!  The sentiments she has included in it, crack me up - especially the one I used on my card for tonight's preview!  lol!  I went clean and simple with my sample, just stamping the images in a variety of Vivid inks on GKD ivory card stock and then trimming them as embellishments.  I took the colors from the text on the October Afternoon patterned paper.

I'm so excited about this new Christmas card kit!  Sandy Claws has always been a favorite stamp set of mine, so when I was looking for a Christmas stamp set to play with, I naturally was drawn to this one!  The penguin is my favorite - but who can resist the Santa "Claws"?  *wink*

This is the first kit, I experimented with a bit on the card stock, so I could include more variety in the color scheme.  Rather than 5 different sheets of cardstock colors - the kit actually includes 8!  I was so happy to be able to 'tweak' the supply list a bit to be able to do that.  


For more samples with tonight's new stamp sets, please visit these participating designer's blog links:
The entire team would like to cordially invite each of you to our release party this Thursday night, September 30.  We'll have contest questions, challenges, chatter, and lots of samples with the new stamp sets to share during the party. Please make plans to join us from 7-10 central on StampTV!

Come back tomorrow night for the big reveal of the new Card kit stamp set!  You're going to love it, I just know!  And, the best part?  This kit is free with the purchase of the stamp set during this next month!
