Red Hot is my favorite Color companion assortment and I would like to see Blue Denim as the next color companion ink pad.
Great card on the Cardmaker blog!

Susan White said...

This is the only one of the current inks, paper and ribbon, I do not have. lol Love the post. My current favorite is cherry red.

Laraine R said...

Red hot is a favorite. I would like to see dark chocolate or warm cocoa! Great card and great products! Thanks for the chance to win!

Diane Wolf said...

I also love the Red Hot, but would love to see a dark chocolate released as well.

Darla said...

Your card is beautiful! I love the cherry red color! It would be so pretty paired up with some lovely warm cocoa!

Trexxann said...

All colours are so lovely, but I would have to choose Ocean Mist as my fave! I would love to see some Wild Dandelion happening next. Your card is just beautiful Melanie, love me some two step stamping!

Cathy F said...

I love all the colors and the embellishments to match. Thanks so much Gina K designs.

Donna Phelan said...

Of course they are all my favorites, but at the top of my list would be Ocean Mist! Anything that is ocean/sea related tugs at my heart strings, thankfully I live at the beach. The next set I would love to see would have to be Jelly Bean Green, I LOVE the way it looks with Ocean Mist! Can't wait to see everything Thursday night!

My favorite is the Fresh Asparagus. And I love to see Wild Dandelion as the next ink color. Your card is lovely. I especially like the gingham paper and ribbon! Happy Monday!

Betty said...

I think Red Hot jumps out most to me, even though I would have guessed without seeing the fresh asparagus since green is my favorite color. Blue denim would be my next color to have released.

Karen (TLgirl353) said...

I love Fresh Asparagus! I hope Chocolate Brown is next!

marge said...

My favorite is the Ocean Mist. Just love all of Gina's products.

Erica said...

I love red hot and would love to see dark chocolate!! I think they would pair great together.

Suzanne @ Day to Day said...

Ocean Mist is my favorite. Next would love to see Grass Green or Jelly Bean green. It's hard to find good greens.

Crafty Math Chick said...

This is exciting! I was intrigued back when Gina sneaked that she was coming out with coordinating inks but have not had the funds to try them out. Cherry red is probably my favorite current color companion, and I hope grass green is next! Thanks for the chance to win!

The Cabby Crafter said...

I love the Red Hot ink and would like to see shades of blue next time.

rramsdell said...

Fresh Asparagus is my current favorite and I would like to see Grass Green released to go with it.

naneruth said...

Such a gorgeous card, Melanie! Love that you used other sets with it. I have yet to get some of the new colors but do plan on it and cherry red will be on the top of the list. I guess a brown or blue I would like next. looking forward to many more ideas with your new set!

Anita said...

I love this new set. My favorite color combo would be Red Hot.

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

Your flower sets are awesome. Can't wait to see the rest of this one. I love the Fresh Asparagus. Since I purple is my favorite color, I'd like to see Vibrant Violet next. Sorry if I answered this twice - blogger is doing funky things for me today.

Verna Angerhofer said...

Oh, my your card you made is so lovely. As to my favorite of Gina's color companions, I guess I would say right now it is Ocean Mist as I seem to be always pulling those colors out of late. But I love them all really.

Verna Angerhofer said...

Oh, I forgot to add i would love to see something in the teal line as well. I really like that color a lot.

Susan said...

Red Hot is my favorite. Would love to see grass green

verna garrison said...

I love the red hot ,have 4 more colors to go and will have them all.
Love Flowers#2, have # 1 and love it. thank you for all you and the team's sharing..

Kathryn A said...

My favourite colour set would be the Cherry Red Colour Companions, although the Red Hot would be so useful for Christmas, Valentine's, etc. I would love to see Dark Chocolate released next!

Denise Bryant said...

Ocean Mist is my top pick, and Dark Chocolate is my choice for a new Color Companion selection.

Lisa K said...

Very cool post on Card Maker. Looking forward to your new set. I love the Year of Flowers!

PoJo said...

Ocean Mist is my favorite of the current Color Companion assortments. I hope she releases Dark Chocolate as a
Color Companion ink pad!

BTW - Your card is great! I LOVE red and white since they were my high school colors...even though high school was soooo long ago!

Becky Dunham said...

Oh my goodness Melanie! This is such a sweet giveaway! It is hard to pick my favorite of the current Colors, but I would have to go with Dark Sage. As for what I hope comes out next, that is even more difficult! I would have to say Wild Dandelion followed by Wild Lilac or both together would be even better :) Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous Red Hot collection!

Jennifer Scull said...

what a great set and card!

my heart really really wants to go with the innocent pink, because I so love all things pink. but good golly molly, that ocean mist is gorgeous!!!! ;)

Louise Fox said...

Melanie, My fav is Cherry Red! It has just the right amount of blue to make it a rich, vibrant color, but don't get me wrong, I would love ANY color of this fab new product. Blessings, Louise

terriavidreader (IN-USA) said...

Just lovely. And I love the RED!

Kristen said...

Red Hot is actually on my wish list as the first ink I want to buy! Love it!

Mary Ann said...

I love red,So I would say I would love this color combination...

Mary Ann said...

I love red,So I would say I would love this color combination...

Paper Crazy Lady said...

Your work is so impressive that I wish I could afford to have your entire collection from GinaK.

For todays post, I would have to say that Fresh Asparagus would be my pick - almost any floral card needs some green and that's a great green.

For that same reason, I hope Jelly Bean Green becomes one of the next collection colors.

Cheryl W. said...

Ocean Mist is my favorite color, but I love them all. I would like to see Dark Chocolate next. I have had a very hard time finding a good rich brown - I think Gina K's is one of the few really good ones!

LadyTrucker said...

I have to say that fresh asparagus is my favorite color. I think the next one that should be released is warm cocoa. Thank you for the chance to win, love Gina!

JulieAS6078 said...

Red Hot is my favorite but I also like Black Onyx, Ocean Mist, and Dark Chocolate too! I'd like to see any of these three in the next collection of Color Companions!

ednamburgess said...

Such beautiful colors to choose from. So hard to make a choice. Love all the matching things that go together. Edna

JulieAS6078 said...

Oops - I meant Moonlit Fog instead of Ocean Mist LOL!

Joyce T. said...

I don't have any of them - yet - but I will eventually need them all of course. I'd really like to see Dark Chocolate as a companion set.

elizabeth said...

Love the Red Hot products. Red is my favorite color and I just love the richness of these products.

sillygirl said...

Love the red, but the Mustard is a favorite...How about coordinating the colors of lavender and purple?
claudiagassett@me.com

Sabrina said...

My favorite is Dark Sage. It's toss up between Warm Cocoa and Wild Lilac but I am sure which ever color she choices will be beautiful!

Alice said...

My current favorite is Cherry Red, and my choice for the next one up is Warm Cocoa. All of the colors are beautiful!

Pamela Haskin said...

I just came over from CardMaker and I'm a new follower. I love your work- gorgeous!
My favorite color group is Fresh Asparagus and I think the Ivory pad would go great with this. Thanks for a chance to win!

Diana N. said...

I like Powder Blue and I think Wild Lilac should be the next color combination, because you don't have any purples yet.

Pam said...

Wow! How have I missed you before. Love the red hot and would like to see In the Navy added to the collection. Would be good for so many events patriotic. Fun to use for the usual holidays as well. Thanks for sharing.

Glennis said...

Fresh Asparagus would be my favourite, and the addition of navy would be great

Lagene said...

Cherry Red is my favorite & how about a new color set of Lovely Lavender?

Susobus said...

Oh so fine! This is a gorgeus giveaway! It is hard to pick my favorite of the current Colors, but Dark Sage is perfect for vintage cards. I would have to say all the others for next release but Wild Lilac is a favorite color. Love the Red Hot collection so Thank you for the possibility to win!

Chris said...

Love the complete card you posted on Card Maker! Can't wait to add these stamps to my collection. My favorite existing color companion is Ocean Mist. I'd like to see either Turquoise Sea (hmm, a theme here?) or Wild Lilac as one of the next color companion sets.

Thanks for sharing your talents and for the chance to win!

sandyh said...

ocean mist is my favorite....i'd like to see a good warm brown too.

J L said...

Yellow is my favorite color, so I have to go with Honey Mustard! I think the navy blue would make a great ink. Thanks for offering the giveaway!

Melinda said...

Congratulations on the new stamp set. Great card on the Cardmaker Blog, the colors match perfectly!

My favorite Color Companion is the Cherry Red, love the boldness of this color.

There are so many Pure Luxury colors I would love to see become Color Companion assortments but the one I would LOVE to see next would have to be In The Navy.

I can picture many cards and LO made with white and the rich color of In The Navy. I just love when everything matches so perfectly!

Thanks for the chance to win such a generous gift!

Angie said...

Mary-Anne V said...

Oh the colours are all so pretty...i love the Ocean Mist Color Companion is my favourite and I would love to see Sweet Mango as the next new ink pad.

Lee Anne said...

All colors are wonderful, but I would have to choose Ocean Mist as my favorite - but Red Hot looks fabulous! Wild Dandelion is my vote for what's coming next!

Lucinda said...

Karen said...

Hands down, I love Fresh Asparagus. Honey Mustard and Cherry Red were close though! All of the colors are so fun, but I'm a practical girl and would appreciate the black and warm cocoa the most as they are so versatile!

Amy McCue said...

I love Ocean Mist. I would like to see Wild Lilac

Oneofakind said...

Diana E. said...

The Pure Luxury card Stock Assorment is so beautiful and I love each and every color, so how can I choose. Any Luxury color Gina releases next will always be perfect ! Can't wait!!!

Judy Woodland said...

Love your card Melanie....really cute. I love all the colors of the inks and accessories, but I think one of my favorites is the Innocent Pink. It's just such a lovely pink color. I'm looking forward to her developing inks that will go along with the Black Onyx and Dark Chocolate card stock. Brown and black inks are always so versatile. And I'm hoping her black ink will be compatible with with alcohol markers.

Susie Johnson said...

I Love Red Hot! I need to have it!

Gayle said...

Gosh, I love color and all of the color companions but so far I think my favorite is the powder blue; that is until I can order the cherry red..

Sylvia said...

With Gina's products it's hard to have only one favorite, I love them all; maybe I can consider Ocean Mist a fav and would like to see Lovely Lavender or Sweet Corn.

Jana said...

My f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e is by far, Honey Mustard. Love, love, love it. I'd like to see Dark Chocolate in the next release.

Moosisk said...

It was a hard decision between Ocean Mist and Red Hot, but my fave color wins out - RED HOT! I just love red and this is the perfect red, in my humble opinion. Thanks for a chance to win. :D

Barbara said...

My favorite is Fresh Asparagus. I hope the next color is sage green, or maybe Navy, but wait, I think dark chocolate. Oh my, I can't decide.

Lynne said...

This new red of Gina's is a beautiful color not found in many of the other brands. Excited as well by how black the black is and can't wait to try both of them. All the colors are beautiful and I would enjoy using any of them.

Tracy said...

I love red hot and would love to see denim or warm cocoa.

Beverly Perdue said...

I love the fresh asparagus. It would be great to have the dark chocolate color companion ink pad. Browns and greens go with so many other colors.

Sharyn Polesel said...

I love your card and can't wait to see your new set Thursday. It is really hard to choose one color since I love them all, but if I have to, I will say the red hot. I would like for Gina to release the lovely lavender.

Susan Sieracki said...

Oh Wow Melanie...congratulations on your article in Card-Making Connections. It was really great to get a chance to read it...and see the lovely card you created. It's so awesome to see a bit more of a sneak peak for what's to come. My current favorite color of hers is Cherry Red. I love that rich look. I would love it if the next to come would include In the Navy. I love that color of her card stock and would absolutely love coordinating products to go with it. Wishing you great success on your new release!

Mandee said...

I love the Wild Lilac cardstock. I would love to see a companion ink pad. This is such a beautiful color.

Love your card! What a great and simple way to sneak peek some of the new releases.

My favorite Color Companions release is Cherry Red, I do love those deep rich bluish reds. I'd love to see one of the next sets in the Dark Chocolate, that's my other favorite color.

Julie Allen said...

Oh, that is a hard question! I probably love the Red Hot the most. It's one of those "feel good" colors. You can't help but feel good when you are working with it.
Can't wait for these new stamps! I have all your others.
