You're Invited! Gina K. Designs Release Party Tonight

Good morning! Today the Gina K Designs Illustrating Team is inviting you to
our release party tonight at 7 PM CST on StampTV! Really hope you can make it!
We are all sharing a taste of the new stamps you'll see at tonight's release!
One reason I think my new Stately Flowers 6 might be come your favorite in the Stately line, no matter where you live, is this pine cone!  The "White Pine Cone and Tassel" is the official state flower of Maine, and is perfect for all your fall and winter nature designs, as well as your more masculine designs all year long!
Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Warm Cocoa, Dusty Sage and Dark Sage.  Button is from the Fresh Asparagus collection.  Pine cone is stamped with Dark Sage and black stamped image is colored with Copics Y28, E47, and E13.

And here is a very quick and easy card with the rose, no coloring!  When I started stamping I was so drawn to images with this much detail, just stamp or emboss it and your design looks like a million bucks!

Can't wait to show you the full set tonight!  We have a matching Studio cut file for it as well.  Please come to the release party 7-9PM CST in the StampTV forum!

Now check out peeks from our other illustrators using their newest sets! Be sure to leave a comment on each of their blogs because ONE lucky winner will get a complete set of all eight of our new ink pads! What a PRIZE!
Party starts today (Thursday), January 10, 7PM Central Time in the Stamp TV Release Party Forum. Join us for Challenges, Contest Questions, Design Team Samples, Full Stamp Set Reveals and, of course, party chit chat!!!
