Gina K previews -Day one!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my first Gina K Designs release!  Today is the first day of previews and I am excited to share samples of the two sets we are previewing, Mugs and Kisses and Blocked Greetings.  The December release will be this Thursday at 6pm Pacific Time and you can join me over on the Stamp TV Release Party forum!

My first card uses Mugs and Kisses, which is designed by Melanie Muenchinger, and oh man, is it a fun set with tons of possibilities!  I loves me some coffee, so this set is right up my alley.  I colored the mug lightly with a copic marker and used some glitter around some edges for extra sparkle.
My next card uses Blocked Greetings, which is designed by Tami Mayberry. The block stamps fit perfectly into the square nesties (or you can cut yourself) and comes with sentiments for any occasion!
Can you tell I have been on a shabby hand dyed seam binding ribbon kick lately? You may even see some more on my other release cards!

Like what you have seen so far?  Gina will be giving away two of each of these sets being previewed tonight!  Just leave a comment on each of the participating designer's blogs listed below 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, on her Blah Blah blog just before preview day 2.  One comment per blog please.
I'll leave you with a couple closeup pictures.  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow for Preview Day Two!!
