Something New

Hi all!

Something new for me today!  For my birthday I ordered the lastest Gina K Stamp TV kit as my present, cuz I *loved* the colors and the sweet stamps that were included.  Shipping was a little slow, cuz they are crazy busy cutting all the rubber stamps.  (How's that for a problem to have!  And they are cut amaze-ing-ly close.... WOW!!)  Anyway, my kit came today and I was SO impressed!  There is a LOT in there... 4 stamp sets, ribbon, brads, cardstock, and patterned paper, plus I got some free sets, too!  I showed it to my DH and even he was impressed.  Yes!  That means I might be able to get one next quarter, too!! : )

So I opened the plastic box that it is all stored in and spread everything out on my desk, and then I about hyperventilated, because there were SO MANY things to choose from.  And I was afraid to cut into any of the paper, because "if I did I might run out".  Seriously!  So I decided to jump right in with this week's Freshly Made Sketch and this sweet Autumn Blessings set.

Everything is from the kit except the brads - the ones in the kit were copper-ish - and the little piece of orange cardstock.  I used SU, Memento and MFT inks. ( Next time I order from Gina K I'll try one of their ink pads so I can let you know what I think. ) I cut the flags with MFT Fishtail Flag Layers DieNamics, and the orange piece is a leftover piece of Open Scalloped Border that I had on my desk.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I need to go clean up my stamping desk now... which isn't nearly as fun as making cards!! :)

Awesome card, Tricia! I love the owl...he's so cute!! One of the things I like about GinaK stamps is that they are cut so close too. Takes a lot of the guess work our of where your image will end up! :)
