Gina K. Preview Day 3: Live Life Loud & Christ is Risen


retiform live life loud
Welcome to Day 3 of previews for Gina K. release on Thursday!  Today I am sharing cards made with 2 more sets – the first is by Tami Mayberry called Live Life Loud, a fabulous retro set with a music theme (I used 6 stamps from the set on this card).  When I sat down to create with this set, I saw a collage type card with bold colors so I used the Retiform Technique which is a lot of fun!
easter blessings (Christ is Risen)
The next set up for preview is by Nina Brackett called Christ is Risen, a beautiful Christian-themed set to celebrate Jesus’s resurrection in the elegant style that Nina is known for!  I naturally saw this ornate cross embossed in gold, paired with metallic gold cardstock and Vibrant Violet to make this a royal card.  Here is a link to information about the Resurrection of Christ if you are interested in reading all about it, it was wonderfully written. 
Reminder!  We are one more day closer to the release party!  Remember it is from 7:00-10:00 pm central time at StampTV, where we will have designer challenges, contest questions, more samples, stamp set reveals and fun chat!!
Here are links to everyone who has previews to share with you today and I’m sure you will be dazzled with it all!  Be sure to leave a comment on ALL the designer’s blogs to have your chance at winning the stamp sets, because Gina K. will choose random winners from all the comments and announce the winner in tomorrow’s post!
