Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

Last Night of Gina K Designs Previews

Tonight is the final night of previews and the release party is tomorrow! Do you have it on your calendar? Be sure to join the fun starting at 7:00 PM (central) over at Stamp TV.

Tonight's preview features two more sets. The first one is fabulous! It is so much fun to play with and has a million possibilities! This set was illustrated by Nina Brackett and is called, "Fine Furnishings." There is an accompanying set that is, "Fine Furnishings Additions" and together these two sets will make for some unique cards. Here is my first card using these two sets.

I started with a Pure Luxury Black Onyx base for the card. The patterened paper (which reminded me of wallpaper) is from October Afternoon. I cut out the black background piece using the Top Note Bigz Die and the Ivory piece using a Nestabilities Labels die. I stamped the chandelier onto the ivory piece in Memento Tuxedo Black and all the other furnishings are paper pieced and popped up with pop dots. Very fun to make! It reminded me of furnishing my doll house when I was little!

The second set for tonight is the One Free with Three set by GinaK, called Friends are Forever. This set has some very pretty stamps and the greetings are all things you could use to make cards for friends or even your significant other. The card I made with this set is a simple little card, but I wanted it to focus on the lovely flowers and the sweet greeting so I purposely kept it simple. I chose the new Pure Luxury Wild Dandelion paper as the base for this one and layered it with a piece of digital paper from the "Bright Botanicals" pack available tomorrow night over at the Gina K Designs store. The oval scallop is made from the new Pure Luxury Sweet Mango and the plain oval is Pure Luxury Ivory. I stamped the flowers in Mememto Tuxedo Black and colored them with my Copics. Do you see that little piece of ribbon tucked behind the sentiment? That is one of the ribbons from this month's Stamp TV kit! It is gorgeous and brings in the new Dandelion and Mango colors! Love it!

Please make plans to attend our Release party tomorrow night, Thursday night, May 27th from 7-10 central time which will be held at StampTV.  There will be contest questions, challenges, samples from several designers and lots of chatter all leading up to 10pm central, when all the new products and stamp sets previewed this week on our blogs become available online through GinaK Designs store!
