Gina K. Designs Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome to the second day of the previews for Gina K Designs January Release!  The GKD DT is previewing two upcoming stamp sets: Dino-Mite and Hopeful Hearts.   First up is Dino-Mite illustrated by Theresa Momber:

The dinosaur images in this set are just so adorable!  Theresa is so creative and this font goes perfectly with these super-cute images. For my dino, I used Chocolate Brown and Fresh Asparagus cardstock.  The image was paper pieced and colored just a bit with a green Copic to make it pop. I die-cut the image using the Large Plain Circle Nesties,  Large Scallop Circle Nesties, and finished the card with some Chocolate Brown stitched ribbon.  Honestly, this is a fun stamp set to use and will make so many cute/funny cards and scrapbook pages!!

Next up is the upcoming stamp set Hopeful Hearts, which is illustrated by Tami Mayberry:

 This is another must have stamp set...sure it covers Valentine's Day with the beautiful heart images, but it is for so much more!!! Right now I know quite a few friends who are going through difficult trials and this set is perfect for creating a little card to help cheer their day. I so appreciate Tami including the Scripture verses in this set, as His Word always brings comfort to those who trust Him as Savior, and this verse is one of my favorites!!
For my card, I used Chocolate Brown as my card base and embossed the frame and heart with Clear Embossing Powder. 

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, January 6th 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,
