Gina K. Preview Day 2: Quite the Catch & Gone Fishing


I'm yours

Welcome to Day  2 previews!!  Today I have 2 samples to share with you.  The first uses Gina K.’s new set Quite the Catch (when you purchase this super cute Summery Under the Sea set you get a free card kit!)  I used the super sexy girl fish with big eyes for my card and on this one I am showing a lot more of our new Turquoise Sea cardstock, embossed with the bubbles embossing folder.  I added the little worm on a hook from Best Fishes since the sentiment is ‘I’m yours hook line & sinker'!  I had a lot of fun coloring this fish vixen with copics to coordinate with the papers I used with the turquoise sea, lovely lavender and vibrant violet – isn’t it a fun combination?  fish closeup

Here’s a close up of my fish vixen so you can see the sparkle from the sakura glaze pens – I gave her purple colored mascara (have you ever had colored mascara? I used to wear it.

Here is the card I made using the new set illustrated by Theresa Momber called Gone Fishing.  It is a wonderful realistic fishing set that is perfect in time for Father’s Day!  Ever struggle with making masculine cards?  Well, this one will be great for those men in your life, especially those who like to fish!  I know my father-in-law will LOVE the cards I make him using this set!  I stamped the fisherman on the end of the pier with memento rich cocoa ink on kraft cardstock.  On the bottom green apple cardstock, I embossed with the distressed stripes cuttlebug folder but then decided to put some nautical netting over it and embellish with a cut out fish from the set.  I think that sentiment is great (but of course it’s not my mantra) for someone who loves to fish!

Designers participating in tonight's previews:

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our release party this Thursday, April 22 on StampTV for 7:00-10:00 CDT.  There will be challenges, contest questions, chatter, as well as great samples from the Design Team members!
