Gina K Designs Preview Day 2

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of the January release for Gina K Designs.  We will be sharing sneak peeks all week and hope you'll be able to join us Thursday evening (7-10 pm CST), for the release party over at StampTV.

Today we will sharing some sneak peeks of Dino-Mite and Hopeful Hearts.  Be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the hop as Gina is giving away TWO of EACH set to lucky commenters!  The winners will be announced tomorrow on THIS blog entry just before preview day 3.

Today, I have 2 samples using the cute, MUST have set for moms of little boys, Dino-Mite illustrated by Theresa Momber!  My first card uses the totally cute Brontosaurus (I think that's what it is, I should ask Daniel -ha!) and some of the Basic Grey, Granola paper that I keep around JUST for little boy cards like this.  If you are a bit intimated on how to color dinosaur images (like me), you can do a little bit of shading and call it good.  The shading pattern is already on the stamp, so you don't have to figure that part out.  Yeah, I tend to get confused with the whole, "which way the sun is falling onto your image" thing -lol!  Hey, we all can't color like the amazing Theresa!!

My next card uses this week's StampTV Sketch Spotlight challenge (STVSKSP7)!  It's a fun sketch and perfect for this T-Rex image.  This time I paper pieced the dinosaur, which is another cute way to get around coloring the image.  The pattern paper is from MME, Fine and Dandy, True Blue. 
Here is the list of the GKD designers who have samples to share today.  Check them out!
 Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for tomorrow's peeks!!

  49. Both of your cards are great, Michelle! I really like the dp you used on the first one and I like it that you left the dino mostly un-colored. After all, we don't really know what colors they were, and I think his blue spots are perfect to go along with the dots/circles on the dp.love the paper piecing on the second one.
