Gina K Preview Day 2

Wow - thanks for the comments on yesterday's cards, I appreciate each and every one of them. I have three more incredible stamp sets to preview tonight and you are going to love them! 
The first one is Theresa's Farm Life. I had a hard time picking which of the great images I wanted to focus on. What finally decided me is the reddish background paper that I found in my "reddish" box of papers. See, this paper was screaming "BARN"! I had fun coloring this barn with my Copics and used silver glitter pen on the silo. The tree was stamped twice, cut out and popped up. The real reason I did that is because I was trying to make it a tree with fall colors but it just didn't look right. (Here in Florida we don't have too many of those!) so I re-stamped and re-colored and cut and popped! The effect was really nice. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card stock. I used Pure Luxury white, grass green, moonlit fog.  This is one of the few cards where I do not sponge the ends. I just didn't think that this card called for it.

My second card tonight was such fun!!! It came together so easy. I used Asela's newest called BOO! Is that not a great look? I found this paper pack from Cloud9 Designs and cut two strips of of it for the top and the bottom. The rest of the card was made with Pure Luxury sweet mango, sweet corn and black all from GinaK. For this card I broke out the embossing powders and embossed the spooky house - see the ghost in the door and the cat in the tree? I then used white embossing powder for the words. I colored and cut out the two Jack O Lanterns and used some yellow glitter pen for the mouth and eyes. Hmmm - which grandchild is going to get this card?

My final card for tonight is a different look. It was made with Tami's great new set called Faithful Florals. You are going to love the sentiments that come with this. I really like the way this turned out. I used markers to color in the flower stamp and then used some distressing inks to sponge around the edges. The specialty paper is from DCWV Latte. The card stock was Pure Luxury Chocolate, Ivory and Vibrant Violet. The brown ribbon I had in my brown ribbon container. Did you notice that I used Nina's Fanciful Tags for the word Faith? Yesterday someone asked to see the inside of one of the cards so I did take a photo of the inside of this one and you will see another of the wonderful sentiments that comes with this. I also stamped the flower image several times.
That is it for tonight - be sure to stop by all the other great previews.
