GinaK Previews Festive Frames

I am so excited to begin the previews for Thursday's releases. I know you will love every single one of the new GinaK Designs stamps. For today, the GinaK team is previewing Melanie's newest set, Festive Frame. It has a beautiful frame image and several holiday sentiments to fit inside the oval center.

I colored the image with Copic markers and used the Stardust Pure Glitter Pen to add the lines, highlights on the flowers and swirls inside the oval. It's my new favorite tool. I love how easily it flows out and the results are amazing, even though it's hard to see clearly in a photo. You will be seeing more of this pen in the next few days.

This card measures the typical 4.25" x 5.5", but the card base is only 4" tall. I wanted to extend the frame outside of the card base to make an interesting dynamic to the card. The scallop border is a preview of my new set, which we will show tomorrow. I used Cranberry Tart, All Spruced Up and White cardstocks, button from the Holiday Button Assortment and sheer ribbon.


For even more inspiration tonight, please visit the Illustrator of the Festive Frame stamp set Melanie Muenchinger's blog. Then, check in on our CenterStage Spotlight Designer, Diana Queen who has prepared a project for us tonight too.

After that, check out these GinaK Designers joining in on the Preview blog hop tonight: Gina Krupsky, Cathy Tidwell, Cindy Lawrence, Erika Martin, Emily Giovanni, Jessica Fick, Kurtis Amundson , Lee Murphy, Lynn Mercurio, Theresa Momber

The GinaK Designs Release party will be held Thursday night over on SCS in GinaK's Forum from 7-10 pm CST. We'd love to have you join in the fun! There will be contest questions, challenges, chatter, and lots more samples from our designers throughout the party! See you then!
