Gina K. Preview – 100% Sweet & Happy Camper


I just learned a fun thing on Microsoft Live Writer {the program I use to compose & publish my blog posts} and that is to insert an album of pictures!  Above is a trio of previews I made using 100% Sweet, a new set illustrated by Rupa Shevde to be released this Thursday by Gina K. Designs!  For those of you who love Rupa’s delicate images, this one sure will not disappoint with a fun collection of “SWEETS” and fun sentiments to match!! 

I was brave {crazy?!} and whipped out one of my mini sewing machines {my real one is in storage and I contemplated going to get it, but I just couldn’t find the time}.  I picked up this cute cupcake & cherry fabric that I thought would coordinate nicely with the set!  I am in love with the images in it too; here I am showing one of the cupcakes, keeping my card design clean and simple.  Do you like the new Soft Sand cardstock by Gina K. Designs I used as the card base?  It is a wonderful, sturdy yet smooth sand color!  The middle picture shows the inside of the little pouch I made with a Velcro closure.  The last picture has two smaller pouches that are really drink coasters with a little batting on the inside.  One thing that annoys me is when your drink glass ‘sweats’ from the condensation, so these fabric coasters will drink it up for you!  The tissue I wrapped up the gift in has cherries on it and it says “It’s a Cherry of Top Day” and it came from a gift I got from Carolina.  There will also be a FREE digital paper pack and fun templates available to coordinate with this set.

Here is a card I made previewing a new set illustrated by Theresa Momber called Happy Camper!  It’s a wonderful collection of realistic camping images and great sentiments to complement it!  On my card, I chose to use the serene mountain & tree image and sentiment ‘Lose yourself in nature and find peace’ so I added a sponged sunset in the sky!  I used the Rough & Rugged digital paper which I thought went nicely with the soft sand cardstock base I used as well as my Chocolate Kiss layer.  There will be a fun freebie digital paper pack called The Great Outdoors from Gina K. to complement this stamp set!   Lastly, I used the new self-adhesive nail heads that will be available on Thursday as well!  I thought it gave just the right touch for my card, without adding bulk.
