Gina K. Designs Hot Summer Release- Part 1: Day 1 (This Girl Is & Unicorn Wishes)

Welcome to Day One of Gina K. Designs Hot Summer Release (Part 1)!

Today we are featuring This Girl Is (by Melanie)and Unicorn Wishes (by me)

The card I created with Melanie's set features one of the small images from the set and a combination of these beautiful sentiments. I love the details - how Melanie used a small heart on the i in beautiful! I knew everyone would be showing the main image of the girl. I wanted to show how versatile sets can be when you utilize all the images in a set. I simply colored each flower with a spectrum noir marker and added a little white gel pen in the center of each flower.



This is the first set in a while that I didn't name after a family member. I really love the way this set is so fun to color! You can create unlimited combinations because these unicorns have manes and tails to color along with bodies and cute little feet. 


Sophie was standing over my shoulder as I created this two minute card (last minute of course). The sun and rainbow were colored with spectrum noir and then I used glitter markers over the top to really make it sparkle! 




This one is on an A2 passionate pink card base. I used the stitched oval die for the main image. I got inundated with graduation card requests - so this was my "out of the box" thinking for some of Victoria's friends!



Here is another graduation card - There are a few blue gems on the card to give it some glimmer and shine!




Sometimes I felt like I was coloring a "My Pretty Pony" unicorn.  This little unicorn is so plump and cute! Here it is on Ocean Mist.  The white ink was embossed to make it really pop off the black card stock.


Finally, this graduation card (school colors) features the stars and shooting star from the Unicorn Wishes set. I colored in each star with glitter pen. When I create a set I try and think of how I would use even the smallest stamp in the set!



If you haven't already, swing by all the blogs and give them some love! You will be eligible for a $50 gift certificate!

And a shout out to Todd, my love, on our 25th Anniversary (today)! Thanks for keeping it real and letting me do everything I do!
