Gina K.Designs May Release Preview #2

Happy Monday and welcome to the second preview night for the Gina K Designs May stamp release. I love the fact that the sets in this month's release are really varied, providing loads of possibilities for a wide range of cards. The first set I am previewing for you tonight is made with the beautiful set called, "Hope Grows" by the always talented Theresa Momber. As you will see, I created a sympathy card with this set but there are many other types of cards you could use this set to create.

This card was made with Pure Luxury white base weight with the sentiment stamped directly onto the card base in Memento London Fog. The scalloped circles are punched from Pure Luxury Moonlit Fog and the plain circles are from Pure Luxury In the Navy and Pure Luxury White. The images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored the owl with Copic markers and sponged around the images with Memento London Fog.

The second card for tonight is a completely different direction from this one! Isn't that part of the fun of making cards -- all the different types of cards you can make in the span of an hour or two! This card is made with Melanie Muenchinger's new set, "Candles on Your Cake." How perfect given that yesterday was my birthday. I had a lot of fun making this card and it felt like I was making my own birthday card since I made it on my birthday. Fun way to celebrate, huh?

Now if all those bright colors don't make someone's birthday cheery, I don't know what will! I made the card base with Pure Luxury Passionate Pink and layered Pure Luxury White base weight on top. The striped designer paper is from the new Basic Grey pad, "Delovely." I stamped the candles with Memento Rose Bud, Dandelion, and Pear Tart and the flames are Memento Cantaloupe. The blue candle  was stamped with an SU color. The cake was stamped on white paper in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut out. I stamped pink sprinkles in Rose Bud and then added a bit of pink glitter just to bling it up a bit! The gorgeous green ribbon is from the new Stamp TV Kit, which will be previewed tomorrow night so be sure to check back for that and another fabulous set on preview night #3!
