Sneak Peek: Dream Birds and Spring Florals


Welcome back to our sneak peeks! First up we have Gina K's new set" Spring Florals", elegant flowers and greetings to go with! Here I colored and sponged one pair of flowers (colored them to look like Blue Eyes but the coloring on the card looks much more purple in real life and closer to the lavender CS) after die cutting it with an Oval Nestabilitie and layering it onto the Labels 7 like a picture on the page. I scored it in the middle and adhered it with pop dots on the right only so it's swinging freely. Greeting is a peek of one of tomorrow's sets! I couldn't help adding the butterfly from Hope is Faith that you saw Monday. :) Cardstock is White and Black Onyx, and the new Lovely Lavender and Lemon Drop, both Cuttlebugged With Victoria. Some adhesive pearls complete the card. I have another sample using Spring Florals in our previews tomorrow, so many of the sets work so beautifully together!


This month Asela has new animal set with "Dream Birds". I stamped this little pair with the tic tac toe board in the middle as though they've been scratching their turns with the beaks (feet? whatever! LOL!) I colored them with Copics and popped up just the birds' bodies separate from the legs.

Last I stamped the love sentiment in Versamark and added the tiny heart from the tic tac toe board over the "O" in love. Card base is Pure Luxury Oean Mist, I also used White, Lipstick Red, and more of Nina's new "Swing Into Spring" digi paper, the lavender is an unexpected pop of color!



For a limited time, a free Card Kit will automatically be included with each purchase of the Spring Florals stamp set. The entire kit includes the stamp set, a binder sheet, the instructions and materials to make 3 complete cards for $19.95. For more details on the cards, please visit Jessica Fick's blog.

Then, check in with each of these GinaK designers to see all the beautiful projects they've made with the two stamp sets previewed tonight!
