Gina K Previews and Blog Hop!



Happy Sunday Everyone,

Today is the start of some wonderful sneak peeks over at Gina K Designs and you won't want to miss all the yumminess and sweetness of the stamps that Gina is releasing this month! Tonight, I get to preview the stamp set: Botanicals. This stamp set is part of the Card Kit - where if you buy this stamp set - you will also release the following cardstock: Red Hot, Fresh Asparagus, Chocolate Brown, Sweet Corn and Heavy Base White along with gold brads and a printed instruction sheet with measurements on how to make the set of three beautiful cards that Jessica created with this gorgeous set.

I love stamping with silhouette stamps - there are so many different techniques that you can use. One technique is to emboss them (you can emboss, then brayer and wipe off for that wonderful Zindorf look! which is something that I could never do and have it look just right). I thought it would look nice to stamp on the dark chocolate cardstock - so I stamped the image in Versamark and then embossed with some some polysparkle gold EP powder:

Here is another card that I made by stamping the silhouette stamp one color and then stamping it again immediately right next to the main "dark" stamped image - this gives it a little faded color - which is a nice way to give some dark/light shade in your card:


Tonight you will see two stamp sets that are being previewed!!! The Botanicals stamp set (like above) and the Beach Bums stamp set - you don't want to miss any of the fabu creations from these Designer's Links:
Please make plans to attend our Release party this Thursday night, May 27th from 7-10 central time which will be held at StampTV. There will be contest questions, challenges, samples from several designers and lots of chatter all leading up to 10pm central, when all the new products and stamp sets previewed this week on our blogs become available online through GinaK Designs store!

Thanks so much for stopping by tonight! Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
