Today is the final day of the sneak peeks for the new GinaK Designs May Release, but the fun doesn't have to stop here. There's still the ROCKIN' Release Party taking place tonight from 7-10 pm (central time) over at the GinaK Forum on SCS. Plan to stop in for a "girl's night out" without even leaving your house!
This sneak peek shows the final two sets that are being released after the party tomorrow night. The Lazy Days of Summer is the newest "One free with 3" set (purchase 3 stamp sets and receive this set for FREE). The other set is the Ribbon Stripes set.
I combined the two of these sets onto this one card. I also used some of the new accessories from the new Eclectic Summer StampTV kit (which is also debuting tomorrow night).
The new Regal Red and In the Navy cardstocks you see here are also brand new! They are both heavy base weight cardstock so they work for layering, but also stand alone as a card base. Both are perfect colors for the upcoming 4th of July holiday and work perfectly with the ribbons and brads in the Eclectic Summer kit, as well as the stamps in the new Lazy Days of Summer set.
I stamped one of the Ribbon Stripes images onto a piece of Pure Luxury White cardstock with Night of Navy ink. Gina designed this stamp set to be used on ribbon, so that you could coordinate and customize your own ribbon, but it also works great on cardstock as a border image.
The three ribbons that I adhered in between the star border are from the Eclectic Summer kit. The brads are also from the kit.
The stars and the greeting both come from the Lazy Days of Summer stamp set and I stamped those in Riding Hood Red and Night of Navy.
I applied some 2-way glue to the stars and sprinkled them with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I poked a silver mini brad through both and mounted them on my card with pop-dots.
Make sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team has done with these sets!
