Sneak Peek # 3: Free with Three "Flower Wreath"

Welcome to our final day of previews! The last set we have to preview is this month's Free with Three set "Flower Wreath" by Gina K. This stamp and sentiments to fit inside are absolutely gorgeous! Don't miss out on getting this versatile set for FREE this month only when you buy any three other sets!
I stamped the wreath onto Pure Luxury White, colored it with Copics (YG93 and YG97 for leaves, and just a touch of Y00 and Bg000 on the white flowers to make them stand out from the white background), and die cut and embossed it with the Nestablities Blossom die. I added nine 3 mm pearls to the flower centers and popped it up over the white mat embossed with Swiss Dot to match the pearls.
Card base and punched fancy corners are Fresh Asparagus and black 5/8" gingham is Pure Luxury. I love white, black and green together, so fresh! :)

We are giving away FOUR copies of "Flower Wreath" tonight!

Here's how to play along:

Leave a comment on each of the participating designer's blogs and Gina will randomly choose FOUR winners from ALL of the comments! That means you have LOTS more chances to win free stamps! Gina will announce the winners tomorrow night, right here at the top of her preview entry just before preview day 3. (And you can leave a comment here too because all the comments will count. One comment per blog please.) Don't Gina will update her blog with all four winners that will be randomly selected from all of the blog comments. (If you win, you can choose another set as your free with three for this month if you place a qualifying order.)


Check out more samples of this set by our other Gina K Senior Designers and Illustrators:

The release party is just hours away now, be sure to pop in when you can at StampTV between 7-10 PM CST Thursday night, Dec 2 for more samples, full set reveals, chatting and ready to shop when all the new goodies are added to the Gina K Designs store at 10! See you there!
