Release Party Today and Illustrator Hop!

Hello!! Welcome to a quickie illustrator hop before the Gina K Designs new release party at StampTV later this morning! Each of us illustrators will be giving a sneaky peek of our projects with our new sets!

Here is a card using my new set Beyond Baskets. It coordinates with seven of my previous basket stamp sets for endless combinations (The whole team will be doing an Inspiration Hop with this set on October 1st) and of course more samples from me at the party in a couple hours! Your requests the other day helped make finishing the cards easier, but not in deciding what to show for this first peek, so many choices!  A lot of you seem to already be looking forward to Christmas and asking about flowers, so I decided on this one, using poinsettias from the Holiday Basket set and the Silhouette matching cut files.  How many of you guessed there'd be an old tin galvanized washtub?  I think everything look good in it! And lots of different handle options, really fun!  I stamped in gray for a more subtle look when I colored, but the details really pop in black.  I've done these poinsettias in red so often, it was time to change it up and go little less traditional with my color scheme!  Lots of word choices in this set, too, I used about 5 different stamps here to make this sentiment, but clears make it so easy to line them up!

Can't wait for you to see the full reveal and all the new options at 11 AM!  If you didn't see the topper of holiday you had in mind, well, you certainly will at the party! ;)

Now hop with the rest of our illustrators for peeps from the new sets:
