Welcome, tonight is the first preview of some of the new releases from Gina K!!! I am thrilled to be part of this as one of the Center Stage Spotlight Designers for September. Tonight I have two cards for you from the new set by Theresa Momber - A Very Merry Christmas....wait until you see the rest of the stamps in this set!.....start saving your dollars - this is a must have set!This first card is done showing how easy it is... with just one of the sentiments, Theresa's matching paper and a piece of the new ribbon... to make a beautiful card! Don't you love letting the nesties do the work! This card is matted with Gina's Rocket Red and All Spruced Up (a deep dark luscious inviting ...oh wait that's my favorite chocolate - whew! where was I?).....nope, in this case its the new, wonderful, dark green cardstock! Love it !!! on this card, you can see I outlined the embossed scallop edge with gold glitter pen to make it pop!
How do you like it??
Now, the second card below used the stamp of the bells and the separate holly stamp. Masked both onto the new Good as Gold paper (it is the best gold paper I've used) to make my background and then masked them again on the white for the focal image. Colored with Copics and clear embossed the bells! Again used Gina's Rocket Red and All Spruced Up (won't try to describe it again...already needing my chocolate fix LOL) for the matting.
here is a closer look. The embossing still doesn't show too well ...but i can hear those bells jingling!!!
What do you think? is this a "must have set" or what!!!!
