Day 2 Sneak Peeks for Gina K's January Release


Hello everyone and welcome to
day 2 of GinaK's January sneak peeks!! I am really excited to be participating tonight and I gotta tell ya...these stamps are FABO!!! I can't wait for the release party on Splitcoast January 7 at 10PM CST so you can see all the new releases!! If you can't wait, check out Gina's blog for a little tease!
The set I will be sharing with you tonight is called Purr-fectly Delightful illustrated by Theresa Momber. I am sooo in love with this set...just look at this darling kitty!!
The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. The sentimant from the same set was also stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and cutout with Nestabilities.

Pearls, lace, and a button with twine finish it off for an old fashioned vintagy look.
Recipe:
Stamps: Purr-frectly Delightful
Pure Luxury Ivory, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Lace, Pearls, GinaK. button, Twine, Nestabilities, Foam Tape


My second card features the flowers in the vase image. It stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics.
The image was cutout and attached to the background layer with foam tape.
Glossy Accents was added to the flower centers and the vase and then dusted with glitter. The punched butterflies were attached with glue dots and silver pearls were added to the centers. Ribbon and the die cut border finish it off.


The sentiment from the same set was stamped on the paper background with Memento Tuxedo Black.










The closeup shows off all the sparkle!!

This AWESOME set also has a Valentine sentiment so, of course, I just had to make a Valentine for one of my DGD's!!

The cute little sugar bowl was stamped on a piece of DCWV designer paper from the Glitter Sweet Stack, cutout, and attached to the red heart I hand cutout and ran through the cuttlebug. The sentiment from the same set was stamped on Pure Luxury Ivory, cutout, and attached with foam tape.



The GinaK. button, silver cording, pink twill, and the heart stick pin are the finishing touches.
Now, I have one Valentine down, and about twenty to go...yikes!!

To be a upright human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an cleverness to guardianship undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can take you to be shattered in unequivocally outermost circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly important thither the prerequisite of the principled life: that it is based on a trust in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a treasure, something rather fragile, but whose extremely special attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.
