Gina K. Preview Day 2


simple snowman

Today I have a cute new set illustrated by Melanie to share, called Hip to be square – but I didn’t used the focal stamp for my card!  I’m sure other designers will, though.  I wanted to share with you that you can use the ‘extra’ images in the set and there are SO many, to make SO many different cards!  If you know Melanie, you know she made yet ANOTHER super-versatile set for our stamping enjoyment!  I used elements to make a snowman head!  The sentiment I used though is in another sneak peek set you will learn more about tomorrow *wink*.  It’s so easy to make extra cards when it comes to holiday card making.  I am showing you both cards to see how simple it can be.  I used the snowflake cuttlebug folder for the white panel and put the snowman head on it with foam tape.  I also added a few buttons from the holiday button assortment.  The green cardstock layer is from the holiday cardstock assortment, called All Spruced Up, a pine green color that is 100lb card stock, which is lighter than our heavy base weight but heavy enough for a card base. It will punch and die cut easily and has a companion Ink, Vivid Vintage Green. 

fall topiary

My next card uses the new beautiful set, Lord of the Season illustrated by Nina Brackett.  I used the Fall topiary for my card as well as elements from the new Autumn Assortment set: Fresh Asparagus, Sweet Corn and Chocolate Kiss, in addition to the pretty striped ribbon & buttons.  I love these colors!!!  I also added a few leaves from A Year of Leaves on the Fresh Asparagus layer with versamark ink.  The Topiary is colored with Peerless Watercolors.  I absolutely love the Scripture from Ecclesiastes for this set, which I used on my card.
