Gina K Designs Release Party

I went to my first Gina K Designs release party on SCS last night....boy, does that thread move quick! Really fun though, and the new sets (especially the owls) are really cool. Here are a couple cards I made for two of the challenges that were posted last night.

The first is a sketch challenge posted by Carolyn. I JUST got the new Super Mom Naomi stamp and the Kindred Greetings for very first Gina K sets that I own...and finally got to play with the Naomi stamp. I've never made a card for my aunt for mother's day, but she's always been such a great aunt. Growing up, I was over there all the time hanging out with my cousins. Aunt Kay was like my second mom. I think she'll like the card. She loves blue too.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Gina K Super Mom Naomi, Gina K Kindred Greetings for Her
Paper: Bashful Blue, Basic Black, White, Bashful Blue Designer Prints, Wild Wasabi Designer Prints
Ink: Versamark Black Onyx, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black, Warm Grey #3 Copic
Accessories: blue bling rhinestones, scallop punch, 1-1/4" circle punch, 1-3/8" circle punch, Nestabilities circle dies, Bashful Blue striped ribbon, crystal effects, dimensionals
Technique: watercoloring
Notes: The card measures 4.75" x 4.75" square. The rhinestone flowers are glued with crystal effects. Both circles are up on dimensionals.

The second card is for a color challenge posted by Joanne. I'm LOVIN' this color combo. I've used So Saffron a lot, but not with Old Olive...especially like it with vanilla. I think I know who is going to get this card, but I won't say here....because she might be lurking.
