Preview Day 3: My Card Kit and Tea Time!

Welcome back!

I'm so excited about tonight's blog hop because we are featuring a lovely new stamp set illustrated by Rupa Shevde and two new card kits designed by myself!  But first, let's look at the next card kit stamp set - I know you're going to get a kick out of these images!  I can't stop giggling when I see them myself...

Is that not the cutest set of Farm animals and kids you've seen!?  They are just adorable!  I will share each card individually on my blog post on Thursday night, but thought I'd share my husband's favorite card from the bunch just so you can see a bit more of the details of the images.

The Funny Farm card kit will be included for FREE with the purchase of the Funny Farm stamp set from September 30 - October's release date.  That's a $12.95 value!

Also, for all my local readers, all next week (October 4-9) I will be hosting a Stop and Stamp event in the GinaK retail store in McFarland featuring this adorable stamp set!  We'll make 1 card and 1 note card inspired from the card kit in the store during the hours that are posted below.  No reservations necessary - just stop in and stamp with me!  Plan on spending between 20-30 minutes to complete them.

Stop and Stamp Hours:
Monday - Thursday 10-2
Saturday 10-1
Cost: $5 or free with $50 purchase in the store

Tea Time illustrated by Rupa Shevde

Rupa has done it again!  Her new Tea Time stamp set is elegant and a perfect companion to many of her other stamp sets available through GinaK Designs.  In my opinion, it's the feminine counterpart to her extremely popular My Cuppa Joe.  I love all the images in her stamp set, and choose to use the stacked tea cups for my preview post.  I colored them with Copics and added a layer of crystal lacquer over them - but the camera didn't really pick up on the shine in the photo, I'm afraid.

Card Details
Stamps: Tea Time (GKD)
Ink: Distress; Black Memento
Cardstock: GinaK white and black; Little Yellow Bicycle dp

This beautiful Christmas stamp set has been calling to me to make a card kit since I first started designing them.  That little snowman is so cute with his smile and the cozy cottage is perfect for a winter scene, don't you think?  I'll share each of the cards in a separate post soon, but thought I'd share my favorite one from the bunch here just so you can see a bit more details.


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!

Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow night with our last night of previews!
