Simon Says Stamp- STAMPtember with Gina K. Designs!

Hi Everyone!

Pinch me! I mean it, pinch me! I can't believe it's finally here! 

Today is the day that I get to share my collaboration set that I designed for Simon Says Stamp's STAMPtember event!




First, I have to tell you how honored I am to have been included in this amazing event! 

When I met Heidi, the owner of Simon Says Stamp, I was starstruck. We were at a retreat together and she was SO sweet and kind and welcoming. I am sure I was stuttering and slobbering all over her. But we sat together and had our morning coffee and we talked. I couldn't believe she wanted to carry my line! I'm pretty protective about where my line is sold and Simon Says Stamp is EXACTLY the kind of place I am honored to have it! So thank you Heidi! You're such a blessing in my life! I am thrilled that you are carrying my line and I am beyond excited to share this set!

Introducing Warmer with You!

This set has a set of coordinating dies that you can purchase as well! And wait until you see what our Design Team and some of the amazing Designer friends of Simon Says Stamp have created with this new set!

I really went to town with the set. I couldn't put it down! It's so fun for cards but equally fun for cute little tags! Here is a photo of some of my projects!



I had to do a family card! The little snow-people can be boys or girls so you can color them anyway you want and add two, three, six... this set works for any size family!

Head right over to Simon Says Stamp because the stamp sets and die sets are limited and ONLY available at Simon Says Stamp. Once they're gone, they're gone! 

Click here to get yours: www.simonsaysstamp.com

I made a video for you featuring this card and one of the tags. It's a little long because I packed so much into it but I sure hope you'll stick with me! 

You can watch the video on YouTube HERE 
or right here on my blog:

I colored the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils and used a little Gamsol to blend. 
To see how I use Gamsol, you can watch this video on my YouTube Channel HERE or right here on my blog: 

And here is another one on YOUTUBE, or here:
