GKD - Preview The Giving Tree

Tonight I am helping to preview Gina K Designs new stamp set, illustrated by Theresa Momber, The Giving Tree.  Now, you all know that I really enjoy doing scenery cards, however, I wanted to show you an "out of the box" use for the tree in this set! I have seen tags with flourishes and doesn't this tree sideways look awesome?  With the snowflakes falling, it is a semi scene - just a different angle! HA!  I used the colors from the Playdate Cafe and I entered these for the Verve's Project Parade.

Okay, I broke down and made a card "in the box".  LOL - I wanted to make another sample, and need to take a break from sets of cards --- I do still need more, but I will make them later.  I sponged the background, and used a little designer paper.  I adore the sentiments that come with this set!  Remember, the Release Party for Gina K Designs, over at Stamp TV, is on Thursday 7-10pm cst.  Hope to see you there!! 
Here are the other DT's for tonight:

Thanks for stopping in~~  all supplies used are available over at www.ginakdesigns.com.
