I think everyone knows that Gina K Designs (GKD) is one of my favorite stamp companies and I just can't get enough of StampTV!! Well, this month I was selected as a Center Stage Spotlight Designer so it is my HONOR and privilege to share a sneak peek of a brand new set from Gina K that will be released TONIGHT!!! GKD always offers a FREE stamp set with the purchase of three other sets. This month the new Free with Three is called Many Wishes and it is deeeeeelightful. :-)
Here's one of the cards I created with this fabulous new set. I just LOVE that it is so versatile and can be used in many unique and different ways. I actually made a couple of different cards with this set but I'm saving the other previews for tonight's release party over on the Gina K forum on Splitcoast Stampers. Please come join us and the fun - click this link to get to the parteeee!
When I first saw this set I immediately thought of summer and bright, fun colors. I started with Pixie Pink for the first layer, then took the medium image and stamped that in Yoyo Yellow right over the pink, followed by the Gable Green for the center and the stem. I added a matching rhinestone for some "bling" in the center and some glitter to "sparkle" up the dandelion. You can see the detail of the glitter in this close up. I also wanted to add a touch of ribbon but I didn't want to wrap the ribbon around the whole card since I used a border punch to add some character to the left edge of the white layer. I used my nesties ribbon tag punch for the sentiment then threaded the ribbon through and tied each end off in what my grandma would have called a "french knot." See the detail in this close up.
Finally, I wanted to be sure that I finished the "wishing you..." with a sentiment on the inside of the card. I chose "laughter" for this card but there are SO many great sentiments to choose from! Many Wishes can be used for lots of occasions - you'll find yourself turning to it again and again.
A final thanks to Gina K for the Center Stage honor and opportunity - I honestly don't know how her Senior Design Team comes up with the fabulous creations day after day but they do - so please check out the other Design Team previews as well. Just follow the links below:
