Gina K. Designs Illustrator Hop: Mix & Match

The Gina K Designs illustrators are hopping today to share some fun ways to combine the new release stamp sets. Hope you will join us as we Mix and Match!


 


Today, I am Mixing and Matching my Lovely Ladybug set with Tami Mayberry's Simple Hearts stamp set!


 I combined innocent pink, cherry red & dark sage inks from Gina K's new color companions collection!

This sweet & simple card was easy to make with a layer of 4 x 5.25 kraft atop a kraft A2 card base. I rounded one corner and added a pink gem to the center of one of the images. The sentiment is from Lovely Ladybug, stamped in memento black!


Check out what the other illustrators have in store:



all items from Gina K. Designs unless otherwise noted

paper: kraft
ink: new color companions (cherry red, innocent pink, sage)
misc: corner rounder, gem
stamps: lovely ladybug, simple hearts

This is a very sweet card. As I look at it, it also has the potential to be the cover of a small photo album or something over a little box of Valentine's Day candy. I LOVE cards that open the way for other creations. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration!
