*********** Beach Bum by Rupa Shevde ***********

My next card was made the Beach Bum stamp set, illustrated by Rupa Shevde.  It's filled with fun beach images that are perfect for both cards and scrapbook pages.   I decided to use Sharri Seffens' Paper Piecing Challenge on StampTV as my inspiration for this card and paper pieced the towel and surf board and then added some shading with a few copic markers.

Card Details
Stamps: Beach Bum, Welcome Home, Candles on Your Cake (another new stamp set - more on that one tomorrow!)
Ink: Versafine black, Distress Inks for shading
Cardstock: GinaK white, tan leather, sweet mango, soft sand, DCWV Citrus Mat Stack (will be available through GKD during this release)
Other: Copics, Daubers, Spellbinder Nestability Tag, Clear Embossing powder, Circle Punches

Please make plans to attend our Release party this Thursday night, May 27th from 7-10 central time which will be held at StampTV.  There will be contest questions, challenges, samples from several designers and lots of chatter all leading up to 10pm central, when all the new products and stamp sets previewed this week on our blogs become available online through GinaK Designs store!

See you tomorrow night when we are featuring Melanie and Theresa's new stamp sets!
