You're Invited: Gina K. Designs Release Party Tonight and New Video



Welcome to our Illustrator Hop,  giving you a peek at our newest sets releasing tonight at Gina K. Designs at 7PM CST!  So come hop along with us and don't forget to add a comment on each blog.  We will pick a random winner to win an awesome grab bag of Gina K. Design Goodies!!

Today I am showing you how to create guidelines for lining up your stamped letters, as well as lend a notebook or academic quality to your projects. All stamps shown on this project are in my new Lots of Letters 2 set.The solid line works double duty as stems for the flowers and the clear photopolymer stamp allows it to be curved as desired. In the video I use the same design as the teacher one below, but spelled F is for Friend instead, which works for so many occasions.:)  (FYI: Teacher Appreciation week is May 5-9th, so I am ready to go with this making a bunch of this simple design!) ;)

 Note:  I said in the video all the circle elements in Lots of letters 2 fit inside the flower, which of course they do, but I actually meant to say the various circles in my previous set with the lowercase letters, Lots of Letters.

Supplies:
Gina K. Designs Lots of Letters 2
Gina K. Black Onyx, Ocean Mist, Innocent Pink, Grass Green ink pads
Pure Luxury White and Innocent Pink cardstock
Spellbinders On the Edge die

4" x 5 1/4" white mat

I hope you will join us tonight at our release party in the  StampTV Release Party Forum from 7-9 PM Central for full set reveals, contests, new samples, chatting and more!  All new products will be available for purchase at Gina K. Designs at 7PM Central. 

Now please check out more peeks from our illustrators with their newest sets!  Start hopping and be sure to leave a comment!!



See you tonight!  Get ready to get your shop on!
