Sneak Peek Day 3: "Sent with Love" StampTV Kit

Welcome to Day 3 or our Gina K sneak peeks! Are you ready for a new STV kit? You are sure to fall head over for heals for Gina's new "Sent with Love"! In addition to lots of yummy supplies like Pure Luxury Cardstock in an assortment of love-ly colors, you are gonna flip for all these cute images and sentiments! Usually, I am immediately drawn to one image in a set that I want to make my sample with but here I didn't even know where to start, they are all so adorable! I *might* have been craving some sugar though, so I started with candy! :) I thought this curvy machine would be perfect framed in a Labels 14 die cut and colored with classic Valentine colors!
The machine is R37 and R59, with a bit of BG000 on the glass bowl. Candies are colored with R37, R83, and RV19.

I also covered each heart with a little Sakura Glaze pen. I popped up two cut candy hearts for the bottom, see how nicely they balance out the greeting and how beautifully the offset greeting fits into the Nestabilitie? The bottom of the Lipstick Red mat is embossed with a Cuttlebug flourish border. Base is Pure Luxury White.


Check out more StampTV kit samples from the Gina K designs team and leave comments for more chances to win this new kit!




See you tomorrow for our last day of peeks and the party later that evening, 7 PM CST!
