Gina K. Sneak Peek Day #4...........Warm Winter Wishes & Holiday Hospitality!!!

Smiley from

It's final Gina K. Sneak Peek Day!!!!!! Are you all just waaaaaaaaaay excited???? Soooo many fabulous, amazing, gorgeous, adorable stamp sets!!!!! Seriously you'll be able to make holiday or seasonal cards for ANY and EVERY style!!!!

This precious snowman is from Cammie's new set, Warm Winter Wishes, that benefits Alzheimer's. Cammie is not only amazingly talented, but so very sweet and generous and it's truly from her heart!!!! I used the new Basic Grey Eskimo matches perfectly with both the Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart and Rocket Red cardstock colors!!! And more fabulous Gina K. ribbon here too!!!

  • Stamps: Warm Winter Wishes
  • Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White, Cranberry Tart, Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Sakura Glitter Pen, Rhinestones, Fiber
I wanted to make a Winter Wishes gift set.......usually we make our own homemade cocoa mix, but I cheated and bought some Spiced Hot Cocoa packets!! And these are some saaaaaaweeeet new Clear Pillow Boxes that Gina is carrying in her store!! So perfect for treats with some tags and ribbon and bling!!! LOL

Now this is Gina's new Free With 3 set, Holiday Hospitality!!!! Now, when my hubby first saw me pull this kit out of the box........he said, "Hey, that looks like one of those Spanish shaker things."............Isn't he cute???!!!! He's not one who normally thinks outside of the box......mathmatical and computer whiz that he is!!!!! But he sure hit the nail on the head with this and I just could NOT wait to bring his idea to life!!!! So.....let's have a Fiesta!!!! LOL

  • Stamps: GKD Holiday Hospitality
  • Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White, Vibrant Purple, Green Apple, Rocket Red, DCWV Stack dp
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Sakura Glitter Pen, Brads, GKD Buttons, GKD Flowers
And what Fiesta is complete without party favors?? So I made a couple quick Sour Cream Favors and a Treat Pouch and then a little Treat Box as a Hostess gift........these Clear Square Boxes will also be available in Gina's store and are perfect for all types of little gifts!!! I used Pure Luxury Vibrant Purple, Rocket Red and Green Apple.......I am soooo in love with Gina's Pure Luxury cardstock!!! I used Gina's White Assorted Paper Flowers and just colored them with Copics to match the cardstock colors I used. I also used the buttons and ribbon that come in the new Stamp TV Kit!!!
