Gina K Design's December Preview- Day Two!

Hello, and Welcome to Gina K Design's December Preview--Day Two!!! Today I will be previewing a stamp set called "Nesting" illustrated by Asela Hopkins.  I just fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it!  I've been into birds lately and this set has such fabulous images with that theme.  Here is my first sample:

I started off with a Chocolate Brown base then used Basic Grey's Periphery DP.  Don't you just A-DORE that nest?!?!  I just love it!!!  Ok, so the nest, the feathers off to the left and the word "Family" are all in this set!  I mean, really, don't you love it?  :)  I colored the nest with Copic markers, and can I just say that it was the easiest coloring job I've ever done?  Asela illustrated these with great shading already so the "work" is already done for you!


I went for Clean and Simply for this next card.  I heat embossed that AWESOME owl in white and then cut him out.  I added to two strips of ribbon, scored a line underneath them, stamped and embossed the Thank you sentiment (from Tami's "Block Greetings set), added some bling then adhered the owl using pop dots.  Voila!  It was one of the fastest cards I've done and I like it!  My card base is one of my favorites, Gina K Pure Luxury card stock in Kraft!  If you've never tried her PLCS, you are missing out!!!  Go HERE to pick some up.

Alright, I don't have to ask, I just know y'all are loving these sets as much as I do!  Now head on over to the other DT's blogs for more inspiration:


Also, you are invited to join us for our Release party this Thursday night, December 2nd from 7-10 central time for contest questions, challenges, and chatter along with tons more samples! The party leads up to the new products featured this week on our blogs being available for purchase online through GinaK Designs at 10 pm. We hope you'll make plans now to be able to join us in all the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Janice  :)
