New Release Preview Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to a sneak peek of our newest sets from Gina K Designs, available this Tuesday at 11 AM CST! Gina K and the illustrators with new sets coming out are hopping, and hopping up down with excitement, over showing off the new stamps! :)

First here is peek at my latest in the series of Basket sets, Basket Additions 3! Filled with tons of new images appropriate for fall holidays, events, kids, and tons of WORDS, I know you will love this new set! And the card above actually uses two sets, because if you read on Gina's blog, this basket is from the popular Holiday Basket set, which is being re-released with a clear option, so now you can get it in clear or rubber, yeah! So easy for lining up!

And here is a peek of another image using a CUT FILE for the Silhouette! ( I made the Halloween card above before I got my cut files done!) Don't they look just like little stickers perfectly cut with the nice crisp border? I also want you to see how cute these images can be, even if you don't have any of the basket bottoms, love it snuggled under a ribbon...
And for those of you who love Halloween, we've got a little something extra for you for Halloween cards, projects and treats! One of our first digital image sets from Gina K Designs, this adorable cauldron and accessories!!
Not available in rubber or clear, this digital image fits the Halloween image you see on the card above from the new Basket Additions 3 set (how cute those spooky friends peeping out from under the lid!!), as well as any of the other Basket Additions sets (or what ever you might want to stamp into in a pot! LOL!) Hope you love this new digital option: just print, color and cut (with a cut file we'll also have if you choose!) A very affordable way to get something specific (but versatile!) that will be so fun this time of year without having to purchase a full set of Halloween stamps.

Have fun hopping and seeing what other surprises are in store for you this month! And hope that you will be able to swing by our release party Tuesday 11AM-1 PM Central at StampTV! Video with Gina and chatting with the teams, contests, prizes, full set reveals, shopping and samples--Whew! Sure to be a blast, can't wait to party with you! Hugs, thanks for visiting!

Melanie,
You and the Gina K team are the ones who inspire us all. Personally, I love the fact that you keep providing us with new additions for our basket stamp...making it one of the most versatile ones I own. Love you school card, too.

Chris said...

Oh My Word! These are just so adorable! I love having more things to put in the basket. I also love how you tucked the books behind the ribbon. What a great way to extend the use of all the basket fillers. I say, I can hardly wait for the cut files. I'm just giddy with excitement. Can't wait to try the HAlloween digi. What a bonus! You guys ROCK!

Connie Ludgate said...

Really nice cards. Looking forward to the party.

Paige said...

Thank you! Thank you! I'm excited to have more options for the basket set!

Fabulous new set, Mel -- love these new basket toppers! What fun Halloween projects can be made with the caldron, too -- wonderful idea!

Tami B. said...

What fun this set is going to be. The card & notebook are super cute.

Maryu said...

Love that you are always thinking about ways to use things together-rubber and digital, baskets and "fillings" and now, cauldrons!(Tempting image!) Lots of companies claim to do this; Gina K really delivers.

meemee48 said...

Digital Stamps! Wow. And the basket additions. I can tell the basket set is a set that can be used for anything.

coloradoleen said...

I love all of the basket additions that you have created, they are all so different and yet so creative and versatile! Really love how you have used the cut file (maybe I’ll be able to find the inspiration I need to really get my Silhouette out of the box and use it) to create the back to school card. Now the options are even wider open than they were before!

Judy Woodland said...

Oh wow Melanie. Love digi's and can't wait to see what all you guys have in store for us tomorrow. Your designs are fantastic, as are your cards. Jusst wonderful!!

VERY cute stuff coming from you, Miss Melanie! I love that sentiment on the Halloween card! It's something I say all the time. How fun to now have a stamp set with that phrase in it!
