GinaK Previews, Day 1

What an exciting week we have ahead with GinaK Designs! Today is the first day of previews, featuring Melanie's new set, Tech Talk, and my latest, Lovely Shelf.

My first card uses the computer and clever sentiment stamps from Tech Talk. Isn't that sentiment cute? I created an eclectic background using strips of paper scraps. The black and olive DP are from my new digipapers, Lovely Shelf Earth Tones (they're available in Regal Tones, too. Both packs match GinaK Designs' amazing cardstocks!). The red DP is Emily's gorgeous Vintage Holly digipapers.

This one is fairly simple, using Vibrant Violet and Sweet Corn CS and the Lovely Shelf Regal Tones digipaper pack.


Up next are several cards that use my newest design, Lovely Shelf. It has 11 images and 6 swirly sentiments that are appropriate for many female relatives (mom, grandma, aunt, etc.) and friend. The word "lovely" is my own handwriting and it is such a treat for me to see it as a stamp. The green DP is again from my new digipapers, Lovely Shelf Earth Tones. The vases were stamped with Vivid Inks: Tuscan Tan, Olive, Brick Red.

Next up uses the lamp from the Lovely Shelf set. I added this sentiment for this release because I know I will use it soon after the holidays. I want to put as much effort making the post-holiday thank you cards as with the pre-holiday Christmas cards, don't you? I paper pieced the lamp and used strips of paper scraps again for the bottom part. The scalloped edge on the very bottom is from Vintage Borders, which works perfectly with Lovely Shelf.

And I made two sets of note cards that I will be giving away as gifts for Christmas. Please click on the picture to view it larger. They all use papers from the Lovely Shelf Regal and Earth Tones digipaper packs. The Regals match the following GinaK Designs papers: Sweet Corn, Vibrant Violet, In The Navy, Cranberry Tart and All Spruced Up. The Earth tones match the following GinaK Designs papers: Sweet Corn, Green Apple, Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate Kiss and Black Onyx.


Oh, I have more cards to show you, but I will have to wait until the RELEASE PARTY on Thursday, Dec 3rd, so please join us!

For now, go to Tech Talk's illustrator blog, Melanie Muenchinger. Then, visit our Designers' blogs participating in the previews tonight:

  13. Nina,
    This set is just FANTASTIC!!!!
    I love all of the cards you made.
    I know Gina mentioned on her blog that she so loved the lamp as her Father made lamps. Well... I love the vase as it reminds me of my Grandmother's wall shelf on whiche she had a set of matching vases. they were almost identical to each other but each was was a little bit different.

    My favorite project that you made was the cards you will be giving out for Christmas. they are just stunning Nina!
    Thank you for sharing.
