Gina K preview ~ Lord of the Season

I'm honored to be participating in the September new release for Gina K Designs as one of the Center Stage Spotlight designers! The set that I am previewing tonight is by Nina Brackett and is called Lord of the Season. This is such a great set and can be used all year round!

For my first card I used the Fruit wreath topiary. I went with fall colors on this one but I think it would also be great done up for Christmas!

For my second card I used the Butterfly Topiary tree. I masked off the butterflies and turned it into a Christmas Topiary . I Love how versitile this set is! I used Flower Soft on the tree and sponged around the image while it was still in the die. I really like the vintage feel of this card.

I hope you have enjoyed my sneak peaks! There will be more sneak peaks all week followed up by the big release party over on Splitcoast Stampers on Thursday night 7-10 CST. Hope to see you there!
