Gina K Sneak Peek- day 2

Welcome to the second day of peeks for Gina K's December release!

Today I have two more Sneak Peeks from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team tonight – and be sure to join us at the Release Party Thursday night over at StampTV




First up is a scalloped circle card using the new set Nesting by Asela Hopkins.  (The sentiment is from the set below!)  The butterfly is stamped, cut out, and popped up on foam squares.  I layered Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles onto each other and finished it off with a Standard Circles LG. 



Next up is a card using the new set The Giving Tree by Theresa Momber.  Since fall seem to skip us by and go straight into winter, I made my card fall themed.  I didn't get to use my fall color palette as much as I would have liked to this year!  This set has tons of options though for creating year round cards!  The die is Spellbinders Lacey Squares. 

Make sure to check out the others previewing tonight as well!!
 enjoy~
