Gina K. Designs Sneak Peeks Day #1..........Mugs & Kisses and Block Greetings!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

Baby it's cold outside!!!!!!!!!!  And we're gonna start off the Gina K. Designs peeks with the perfect way to warm up!!!!

First is Melanie's new Mugs & Kisses...........and talk about cuuuute!!!!  This is another fabulous "Melanie" set with sooooo many fun possibilities!!!


  •  Stamps: Mugs & Kisses
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, Cranberry Tart, Green Apple; Basic Grey
  • Accesssories: Rhinestones, Ribbon, Liquid Applique
What better than a steaming cuppa Chai topped off with some whipped cream??  YUM!  Now I want one as I watch the snow fall out my window!!  I was obviously in a "blingy" mood too!  LOL  I used the perfect holiday-ish Pure Luxury colors, Green Apple and Cranberry Tart.  I used Basic Grey dp and the Houndstooth Cuttlebug Folder.  The Beaded Nesties are perfect for bling!!  ;)  Some liquid applique to top off my cup with some "foam"!!!

Next is a cute set by Tami called Block Greetings!


  • Stamps: Block Greetings
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, Chocolate, Red Hot
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Pearls
I decided to keep this one more CAS...and yes, CAS can have bling!! LOL  I love the Tan Leather cardstock...and just scoring a few lines added even more fun texture!  I think this could work for a masculine card.....after all, it's not pink!!!!  LOL

And, this month, we are giving away more prizes than usual too! We are giving away two of each of these sets being previewed tonight.

Leave a comment on each of the participating designer's blogs and Gina will randomly choose FOUR winners from ALL of the comments! That means you have lots more chances to win free stamps! Gina will announce the winners tomorrow night, at the top of this entry on Gina's Blog just before preview day 2. (One comment per blog please.)
Now hop along to the amazing DT.......it's the first month our new DT members are hopping along with us!!  I know I can't wait to see all the fabulous creations!!!

And be sure to join us in the Stamp TV Release Party Forum this Thursday night at 7 p.m Central Time for the Release Party!!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~
