Gina K Sneak Peek Day 2: Birds & Flowers


Today I have 2 cards to share of sneak peeks for Gina K Designs! The first is Rupa Shevde's-Home Tweet Home which you can use for a variety of cards with the many sentiments included. I made this card for the 12th Day of Christmas sponsored by Gina K on Papercraft Planet and it is to use 12 embellishments! I figured it would be a challenge since I'm a minimalist when it comes to multiple embellishments, so I new I could manage 12 rhinestones (they happen to be in the top 3 of my favorite ones). I have them on the blossoms on the tree - sorry the picture is not quite picking them up, but trust me - they are there. The pattern paper I used is a level 1hostess bundle by SU! and uses all in colors, so soft for the pretty bird. Be sure to play in the challenge this week so you can win a free set from Gina K!

Next up is Tropical Flowers, which is a new style for Gina K and happens to be one of the sets given away to all cruise participants. Silhouette, solid stamps are very popular right now and I like them because there are so many different techniques you can use with them to create so many different looks. With this card, I chose to create a classic black & white card - embossing the flowers with black embossing powder. The pattern paper is Ebony & Alabaster by Black Market and the black & white gingham ribbon is by SU!

Go check out all the other design team's sneak peeks today and remember the release party on Thursday, December 11th 7:00-10:00 p.m. (Central time) in the Gina K forum on SCS. There will be contests, challenges, chat & more!!
