Gina K Designs Sneak Peek Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the previews for Gina K Designs December Release!  This is my first month on the Gina K Designs Design Team and I am just thrilled and honored to share some of the samples I made with the stamp sets which will be released this Thursday night at 10 PM (CST).

First up is Mugs and Kisses which is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  This stamp set is jam packed with some fabulous sentiments and images that will be perfect for anyone you know that enjoys a good cup (or mug) coffee, tea, chai, hot cocoa and even soup!  I decided since it was almost December to create a Christmas card.   


Don't you just love that peppermint stick!!!  Eeks, so cute!  I used Chocolate Brown cardstock and layered it with Lipstick Red and Ivory.  I added a bit of  Chocolate Stitched 5/8" ribbon and a little Happy Holidays tag.  I used Spellbinders Large Classic and Scalloped Circles for my image which was paper pieced.  Melanie has certainly created another adorable set and know I will use it a ton...  Don't you just love that BIG mug :o)

My next project features the newest set illustrated by Tami Mayberry called  
Block Greetings...

And yes...the squares in this set coordinate with Classic and Scallop Large Square Spellbinders dies!  Tami included beautiful sentiments that fit perfectly within the scalloped oval.  For my card, I kept it to a simple Friend greeting.  I love how quickly you can create a card with this stamp set and plan on creating sets of cards to give as gifts. ( I am also entering this into the  Card Creations: Favorite Occasions Week All Occasion Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.)

Be sure to comment on Gina K's blog as she is giving away one of each of these stamp sets on her blog.  And for even more samples of the upcoming release, please check out these participating designer's blogs:
    We'd also like to invite you to attend our Release Party Thursday, December 2nd 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. 

    Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
    Blessings,
