Gina K Previews and Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone!

Have you seen all the gorgeous previews that have started over at the Gina K blog! Today, I am excited to be able to show you samples from two new stamp sets that will be released this week called: Tea Time and Funny Farm!

I always adore all of Rupa Shevde's creations - her illustrations are perfect and gorgeous and I couldn't wait to play with the new Tea Time stamp set that she has created for Gina K - its beyond TEA-riffic (hee :). I love the stacked tea cup images in this stamp set and colored it in with the colors from the new Pixilicious DP from Cosmo. I added a little glaze to the teacups and then framed it with the labels nestie and finished it off with some ribbon and bling:
Card Ingredients:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket: Pixilicious
Stamps: Tea Time from Gina K.
Ink: Grape Jelly from Memento and Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Spellbinders Labels, Want2Scrap, borderedging stamp set, Eggplant Adirondack liquid pearls, ribbon from stash and glaze.


The second card that I created for tonight also comes from the awesome new stamp set called: Funny Farm that comes with a free card kit upon purchase! How awesome is that!! This stamp set comes with the following ingredients in the card kit:


Card Kit Contents:
* Card stock: Full sized sheet - white and black; 1/2 sheet: navy, little boy blue, red hot, innocent pink, sweet corn, and green apple
*1 yard 5/8" black gingham ribbon
* silver brads
* Instruction sheet (to create all the uber cute cards that are on
Jessica's blog)



I used the Card Kit to create this card using the Funny Farm stamp set. Living in Iowa, I ADORE this stamp set - its full of adorable sentiments and cute images. I decided to use the image of the farm scene since this is exactly what I see everyday when I pull out of our driveway and drive out to work and back :) I created a little sky behind the image by masking it off and then sponging it with some sunrise sky colors :) 




I love the black and white gingham ribbon that comes with this card kit - its perfect for a card from the Funny Farm! lol! 


For more samples with tonight's new stamp sets, please visit these participating designer's blog links:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
