Gina K Designs Preview - Tech Talk

Well, now, we all know how totally awesome Gina and her stamp tv crew is, right?  Well they must have some kind of super powers.  Seriously!!!  I was so super psyched to be included along with all of the super talent on StampTV.  But when I saw the set assigned to me... well...  I squealed.  Seriously. :o)  That brings me to the super powers part.  So Melanie, must have been thinking of me when she designed the set that was assigned to me.  Yep, she was. ;o) And when it came time to decide which stamp to assign to me, it's like they knew.  I work in IT and I am a total geek.  And I love it.  So when I saw this set, I went crazy.  OMG!!!

So I decided to make the cutest laptop ever for my first card.  Decked out in pink, of course. :o)  Here is a close up of the cutest laptop ever.  And wouldn't we all want to receive this message on our cute little laptop?  Yes, we would!


I stamped the laptop image onto 120 lb. Pure Luxury White card stock.  I cut out the screen area.  I colored the whole piece pink with a Copic marker.  Then I stamped the bottom portion of the laptop on some Basic Grey pattern paper from the Lemonade collection.  I stamped "((((HUGS))))"  with white chalk ink on Black Onyx Pure Luxury card stock.  I also stamped the little pointer arrow with chalk ink.  I colored the mouse/touchpad with a black Sakura Glaze Pen (it looks really cool in real life).  Here is the full card with more paper from the Basic Grey Lemonade pad and other images from the set.




This laptop was made for me because it has a mouse for a right-handed person.  But the really cool thing is that Melanie (genius that she is) created a mouse for the left-handed person as well.  Isn't she super smart?  Yes, she is!  The card base is my new favorite green, Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus.

So are you ready for more inspiration?  Don't forget to join us at the December Release Party in the Gina K Designs Member Forum over at SplitCoastStampers.  The party is from 7 - 10 pm CST.  That's 8 - 11 pm EST (in Pennsylvania, where I live).  Here is a link to the Member Forum.  You can also check out StampTV.com or Gina's blog for more details.  I know that members from the design team post helpful hints as the party approaches.
