Gina K Preview Party - DAY 2

Woo-Hoo!!! Gina K is releasing a whole bunch of new stamps on Tuesday, May 20. The set I'm previewing is actually called "Woo-Hoo!" and has lots of cool summertime images like stars, firecrackers and fireworks.


As soon as as I saw this set I knew I wanted to make a flag card using the stars and the "Celebrate" sentiment as the stripes. I cut strips of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment with red ink, then adhered them to the white card base. The stars were embossed with white ep, then colored with Spica glitter pens. I popped them up on dimensionals and added a little faux stitching.


I used the stars again on the second card, and combined it with some new designer paper I just bought today at my LSS. I think the colors of this card and the "You're invited" sentiment definitely take it away from the 4th of July theme and show that it's a set that can be used all year long.


Don't forget to check out Gina K's blog for more info on the release and maybe even a give away? You can also see more sneak peaks on Carolyn's, Melanie's, Barb's, and Joanne's blogs.


The release party will be held on Tuesday, May 20 from 7pm to 10pm Central Time. Keep stopping by my blog with week for more sneak peeks.


Let me know what you think!
