Gina K Previews and Blog Hop!

Happy monday Everyone!

Its sneak peek time over at Gina K. and you might have seen a peek at some of the new sets that were peeked yesterday (so beautiful!) and today, we are showing you some more sneak peeks from the stamp sets: you seen all of the wonderful preview: Happy Spring stamp set and By Your Side stamp set by Aslea Hopkins.

The stamp set that is part of the Card Kit this month is the Happy Spring stamp set! This month there is a change in the card kit where each kit will receive the Happy Spring stamp set and instruction sheet along with 4 sheets of pure luxury cardstock, 1 sheet of exclusive patterned paper with 4 different designs, 1 yard of ribbon and brads (the cardstock will not be precut). The card below uses the digi paper that will be available through GinaK. and I have to say that I love the fact that it is already measured to the A2 size - so all you have to do is print and cut :).

The Happy Spring stamp set comes with such sweet sentiments and images and I love this image of the well and the water coming from it - I couldn't help pair it up with the sunny sentiment: "Hey Sunshine" :)

The second card is from the stamp set that is being sneaked peek is from the "By Your Side" stamp set that is illustrated Aslea Hopkins. I LOVE the images in this set, especially the sweet little Koi fishes - and the sweet sentiment: By Your Side Always:
I used the pure luxury papers for this card and I love how heavy it is to hold up my super layered koi pond :). Here is a closer look at the Koi pond (after coloring it in, I popped up a sheet of embossed acetate so that it would reflect some shadows into the "pond" :
I absolutely loved working with these darling stamps and can't wait to ink them all up :)

Oh my goodness, those cards are awesome! Particularly your Koi card, too, how absolutely creative using the embossed acetate! It really does give it a "real" look to it. All of your cards have such great balance in composition, color choice and texture--you are so talented!
