GKD Preview - Block Greetings & Mugs & Kisses






This new set of Gina K Designs, Block Greetings, illustrated by Tami Mayberry is really fun!  I needed another set of cards (such a perfect co-worker gift) and would you look how perfect these framed stamps work!  Oh I just love this set.  What is even more fun is they fit inside the square nestabilities - perfectly! 


You can see just how great they fit inside by this close up of the box  (thanks Karen!) I made to hold the cards in. Aww such potential!!  I can't wait to make more cards with this set!!



This is Mugs & Kisses  - illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger



 I seem to be on a card set kick for this preview, that's okay since I have about 6 people I give that "little something" gift to. This set of Melanie's had a bunch of tiny stamps.  Can I just tell you how fabulous it is that the stamps are PRE-CUT!!  Oh yeah - punch em out - stamp with them~~ excellent! 

I am also doing another preview tomorrow night -- be sure and stop in.  There is a lot of excitement in the air over Gina K Designs' new stamp releases.  The release party is Thursday night over at Stamp TV, 7-10pm CDT time.
Here is the list of all the other DT's - (I am sure you have probably seen them since I am the last on the list- that's what happens with V as a first initial! lol)  Thanks for stopping in~~  ps all supplies used to make these cards are available at www.ginakdesigns.com.
