We had so much fun at our release party on Thursday! For those of you who couldn't join us, don't worry... all of the contests, my release party challenge, full stamp sets reveals, DT samples and the full release party presentation video are still on the home page at StampTV here: Release Party
I wanted to show you a few of the cards I made featuring the new stamp sets just released. These projects are all explained, step-by-step, in the featured release party video here: June Release Party Video
First, here is a card that I made that uses the brand new Pretty Patterns stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger, the new Tropical Nature set by Theresa Momber and this month's One free with 3 set, Assorted Greetings.
Ny next card uses the brand new stamp set by Becky Oehlers called I Do!
And my final Release Party Video project uses the new set by Tami Mayberry called Grand Tags along with Melanie's Pretty Patterns for the background.

A few business items:
We have heard that some of you are having trouble getting an accurate card stock color respresentation from the photos on our website. We agree! It's hard to get an exact true color because every monitor is calibrated a little bit differently. We just revamped the chart and on the computer we used, they are pretty close, but maybe not close enough.
So, here's the plan. I am going to photograph each color of card stock using our StampTV studio lights and then crop a piece to add to our website color chart. Now, this still might not be exact- exact because of the monitor issue, but it will be as close as we can get and should give you a much better representation of our colors including any little texture or fleck that the card stock may contain.
(Example- our Kraft and Sandy Beach card stock each has a bit of a fleck.) Oh, and did I mention, we will be adding quite a few new colors too!
This upgrade may take a few weeks to complete but I have already started working on it. Please hang in there with me.
As the mother of a daughter who is an artist and loves to hand draw, I can't help but be in awe of our illustrators who hand draw little masterpieces such as realistic flowers, birds, scenes and more. And we know we have a HUGE customer base that loves this type of stamp image for coloring, embossing as much as I do.
But we have heard that some of you would like us to add a more graphic style to our collection. We think that's a great idea!
We'll never stop producing the current Gina K. Designs style and lots of you like the more whimsical style that we carry as well. (I am quite partial to anything cute as well! Give me ducks, owls, cute animals, whimsical trees. I am all over that style!)
But there is always room to add more styles so we want you to know that we are working on some graphic sets that we think you will adore. :)
At our last release party, a few of you made suggestions in an almost apologetic tone. LOL! PLEASE! Suggest away! You guys are the reason that we are here. So if you want something, tell us! If we can do it, we will. If we can't, we would NEVER be upset about a suggestion! We know each and everyone of you is an individual with a taste and style all your own. That's what we love about you and that's what make StampTV a great eclectic community. Let's not change that. Everyone's opinion is respected and appreciated. :)
So, that's all for today. I hope you enjoy the release party video and that you have a wonderful weekend full of creating! For those of you in the heat wave- air conditioner on and stamps and ink in hand... and for those of you battling the rain and floods, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
