Welcome and cheers to You!

Happy release day!!!

Are you ready to party tonight?! I can not wait for you to see these new sets so please join us at 7:00 pm ct in the Gina K forum on Splitcoast Stamper.

Today we have Melanie's new set and Gina's new set that is free when you purchase 3 other stamp sets.
Let's start with Melanie's new set, A Charmed Life. Make sure you have your Tonic scissor ready - she has packed 59 images and greetings into this set! There really is very little rubber left when you are done cutting this set out. You will love all many options and versatility that this set provides. She has definitely out done herself once again!

The wine glass is stamped with versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder. The wine inside the glass was colored with copics.
I just bought myself a new spellbinder die called Decorative Frames. The smaller frame is behind the popped up glass and the sentiment is stamped on the center of the frame. I used Metallic rub-on paste around the edges. I also like using the rub-on paste for stenciling with the spellbinder dies.
I use Gina's white pure luxury and black onyx pure luxury paper. I love that the black onyx is a true black.

Check out what the other designer's created with A Charmed Life:
Asela, Donna, Erika, Gina, Jessica, Melanie, Theresa and Cathy Edgar.

Are you ready to see Gina's new free with three stamp set? Wreath of Wishes is a must have! I just adore the sentiments in this set!
Isn't the wreath of flowers gorgeous? I can see myself using this wreath with several other of Gina's sets. I stamped the wreath on vellum with versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Did you know if you lay the vellum on aluminum foil when heat embossing the vellum will not curl but will remain flat and smooth?
I colored wreath from the backside with copics to create the stained glass look.
Here is a close up of the wreath.
And a picture of the card with the insert pulled out. When the insert is pulled out you can see the patterned paper behind the wreath.
After seeing the sneak peeks, which set do you like best?
Be sure to visit Carolyn, Donna, Erika, Gina, Jessica, Kurtis, Melanie, and Theresa who also have sneak peeks of Wreath of Wishes.

I hope to see you all at the release tonight.
Have a wonderful day!
