Gina K. Sneak Peeks Day #2............Nesting and The Giving Tree!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

Ready for more peekies????  Our family loves bird-watching and feeding the little guys too!  Birds and trees are tonite's theme for peeks!!

First is Asela's new set, Nesting.


  • Stamps: Nesting
  • Paper: Pure Luxury Ivory, Chocolate
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
  • Accessories: Ribbon
I so love all the tiny details in this stamp set!!!!  The feather is just gorgeous!!  So I made my own background dp with it!!  I was going for a monochromatic look that would make a great masculine card design, so I kept to a Pure Luxury Chocolate and Ivory color scheme.  Just a touch of ribbon with the sheer chocolate I had.  I know I'll enjoy coloring this set too, but I do enjoy CAS more than I used to!  LOL

Now is Theresa's adorable set, The Giving Tree.


  • Stamps: The Giving Tree
  • Paper: Pure Luxury White, Chocolate, Bubblegum Pink; Basic Grey dp
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Memento Angel Pink
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Pearls
This time I just had to go with some pink!!  LOL  Actually this is my all-time favorite color combo, pink and chocolate!!!  And how perfect is the tree image with some sweet little hearts for the branches!!  I had some crushed velvet ribbon and pearls....cuz I gotta have some bling!  LOL  Oh the possibilities with this set will blow you away!!!

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 keep on hopping to see more INCREDIBLE creations from our amazing DT members!!!


And join us for the party in the Stamp TV Release Party Forum on Thursday at 7 pm Central for all the stamp reveals, challenges and contest questions and chatting and eye candy!!!

~ Have A Creative Day! ~
