Gina K. Designs Sneak Peek Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the previews for Gina K Designs February Release!  The GKD DT is previewing two upcoming stamp sets both illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.  My first card uses the stamp set Spring Basket:


Melanie's floral sets are just amazing and so thrilled for this newest one with the basket!!!  I stamped the basket on Kraft cardstock and highlighted it a bit with Copics.  Then I colored my flowers with Copics and popped them up on dimensionals.  I scored the Lovely Lavender cardstock using the Scor-Buddy, just perfect increments with that handy tool! 
My second card features the upcoming set Basket Blessings:


 This image reminds me of my children and the stuffed toys they have had over the years. I paper pieced the rabbit and elephant, and colored the bear with Koh-i-Noor pencils and OMS. 

For even more samples of the upcoming release, please visit each of the blogs listed below and leave a comment. The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you have of winning!
Tomorrow, Gina will announce on her blog 4 randomly chosen winners who will each win one of these fabulous new stamp sets! 
We'd also like to invite you to attend our Release Party Thursday, February 17th 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,
