You're Invited: Gina K. Designs Release Tonight

Good morning!  Today, the Illustrators have put together a little invitation hop for you! This hop features stamps that will be released tonight! 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!!

I am so excited to share sneak peek samples with my newest set  Stampers' Favorites!  Birds, butterflies, flowers…and more!  You will love having some of the most popular images among stampers and cardmakers that work year round all in one set.  The first in a new series, whether you want to stamp and go, practice new or comfortable techniques, or do detailed coloring, these images and greetings make perfect first steps for beginners and tried and true favorites for any stamper’s collection.
  Feathers are one of the HOTTEST trends right now, but are also classic nature images.  I LOVE how this little hummingbird illustration turned out!  I used a little rhinestone for his eye and to accent the feathers.Stamped in a colored ink instead of black and you need very little coloring (if any!) to add a few more coordinating warm or cool tones.  Greeting is from Beth Silaika's new Lots of Thanks set.  Cardstock is Gina K. Pure Luxury White and Cherry Red.
 Loving mixing my new dahlia image with Carolyn King's new Elegant Flourishes!  The flowers you see here all come from one stamp:  the many layered petals of the dahlia allow you to trim off as many rings of the petals as you want to make them be smaller flowers (like the one at the bottom of this bunch) or to layer on top of the full image for the paper tole effect the tw above are two layers).  Greeting is from Theresa's new Vertical Greetings set.  Cardstock is Pure Luxury Little Boy Blue, Dark Chocolate and White.  The flowers are stamped in Gina K. Dark Chocolate on the blue cardstock and then just accented with a blue Copic, easy peasy!  Flourishes stamped in Grass Green. Shift the stamp without re-inking and stamp off to make the flourishes look dimensional.  You can add these elements in so many ways to your layouts!

We are all so excited to party with you as we share the new stamp sets and samples and chatting and contests and prizes and...! 7:00- 9:00 PM Central Time in our forum at StampTV.com! All of the fun starts right here:

 
Now please enjoy visiting the rest of the team for more peeks of what new stamps will be available tonight at 7PM CST for purchase in the Gina K. Designs store!
