I'm so excited to be participating in the Gina K Designs September stamp release! Tonight begins the previews by the Design Team and the Center Stage Spotlight Design Team for this month. I am helping to preview the new set called Special Delivery. This set also has a companion add-on set. This is a really fun, versatile set by a brand new designer for Gina K. This set is great for many different occasions, including the upcoming holidays.
My preview card was made for Christmas but you will find this set great for making cards for birthdays, new babies, valentines, and other events.
This card is made with a gorgeous new green Pure Luxury cardstock called All Spruced Up that will be released this Thursday, October 1. It is a deep, rich green that will be perfect for your holiday cards. The red paper is the Pure Luxury Rocket Red and that designer paper you see peeking out from behind the focal image is one of the beautiful new digital papers you'll see in the September release. The stamps are from the Special Delivery stamp set. I stamped the Happy Holidays circle in the Vivid Dye Ink - Brick Red and the others in Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored the ornaments with Copics, added a touch of sparkle with my Spica pens and then covered them with crystal lacquer to give them some shine. The ribbon, which didn't photograph very well, is also going to be released this Thursday along with several other beautiful ribbons that will be perfect for the holidays. This one is edged in the same green as the All Spruced Up paper and has a gold thread along with the red center. I tied a bit of gold cording on the bow also.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! There will be more to come all week and then the big release party is on Thursday over at Splitcoast Stampers. Be sure to check out all the sneak peeks tonight for the Special Delivery Set and A Very Merry Christmas.
