Gina K. Preview Release Day!

The day is finally here! It’s our last day of previews so that means our release party is almost here! I hope you’ll join us! My first card showcases Carolyn’s new charity set, Warm Winter Wishes—100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of her grandmother who died a year ago. I’m sure she would be so proud…I know we all are on the GK design team! This set is so cute---I love snowmen! It is a mini set, but you get so many fun elements in it, such as a coffee mug, snowflake and fun sentiments! I was inspired to make a frame for my snowman and had so much fun making this card – I wish you could see it IRL—the dimension on it because of the inset frame and paper-toled snowman is great. I colored him with copics and put red stickles on the heart. The snowflake background is emboss resist (snowflakes from the stamptv kit).

Next up is the One Free with 3 set, Holiday Hospitality which is a great set with a large ornament and several greetings for you to make cards, scrapbook pages, gift tags (like I made here) and the list goes on! The sentiment I used on my Hip to be square card the other day is in this set. I used Vintage Holly digital papers made by Emily Giovanni on the card & wrapper around the pumpkin spice bread I made. ornament tag closeup

Here is a close up of the tag I made for the bread, paper-piecing the ornament and using foam tape for dimension, it was real fun - I love the look of it. I used ribbon from the stampTV kit, white organdy with sliver of gold, it’s just beautiful.

It seems many of have the great idea to pair Cammie's set with that CB snowflakes folder. I love how you framed your snowman with it. I do wish I can see it IRL. And your tag is so pretty, too. I love the sweet colors.
