GinaK Designs--Seeds of Kindness Preview!

Hi, Everyone!  Tonight I have the first part of the super exciting news I mentioned last week:  I'm Guest Designer for GinaK Designs Card Kit stamp set for July!!!  Woo Hoo!!!  When Gina asked me if I would be interested I thought to myself, "Are you kidding???  Guest design for one of my FAVORITE stamp and paper crafts companies???  YES, please!"  ;)

So, I get the privilege of previewing "Seeds of Kindness"--GinaK Designs Card Kit stamp set for July.  Purchase this set and get a free card kit along with it!  Nice!

Here is my first card:
For this card I used GinaK's wonderful quality Pure Luxury card stock in "In the Navy," "Tan Leather" and White.  I embossed the stripes on the white and added the burlap garland and leather strip to give it and "outside the house" feel.  Don't you love that sentiment too?  Too cute!  The silver brads and green ribbon are also GinaK and you can find them here.

And my second card:
When I first saw this image I knew I would have so much fun coloring it!  I just love these potted plants!  I started off with a "Tan Leather" base, then a strip of "Chocolate Brown" layered with a strip of white on which I stamped the potted plants image a few times in Memento Cottage Ivy.  I then layered the burlap panel onto the strips of brown leather and placed the nestibilites labels four cut out on it.  After coloring and cutting out the potted plants image, I adhered it to the Labels four cut out with pop dots.  Added the ribbon to tie it all together and the brads and sentiment finished it up! 


Well, did I do alright guest designing?  I had a blast creating these card and look forward to making some more!  :)  Thanks so much for stopping by--I really appreciate it!
