Gina K Sneak Peek Day 2: Magic & Warm Fuzzies!


You will not believe the ungodly amount of time it took me to make this card! Now that I look at it, I really wish I had done 'something' to the baja breeze card front like cb'd it (need the bubbles one) or stamped on it! Oh well. When I first saw the new set Best Fishes by Gina K, I was so excited to see a seahorse image! How cute is he? Wait till you see the rest in the set! It is so fun. Reminds me of the fish tanks we used to have, it was so relaxing but a little annoying when the water was too low and it would make too much noise. We have had a 40-gallon & 100-gallon tanks and I miss 'em but they are a lot of work to maintain! So I took on the arduous task of theMagic Pull card on SCS because I always thought they looked fun well, it was work but I love the end result!
Here he is up & out, I had issues with lining up my images even though I was using a stamp positioner! HA! I colored him with peerless watercolors and was pleased with that, anyhow! I love this sentiment for him!

Next up is Warm & Fuzzy by Asela Hopkins!  I'll never forget learning that term in Psychology in 11th grade in high school, in Mr. Drommond's class - he was such a great, gentle soul.  Warm fuzzies are compliments, something that makes you feel good inside.  If you've left me a comment over the past few months, you may recall I have that in the box, 'thank you for leaving me warm fuzzies' because when someone takes the time to leave an encouraging comment on a project, it makes me feel all warm inside, appreciated!  

Isn't this little walking doggy the sweetest?  I just had to make him toting the heart shaped balloons on his tail.  I really like the heart swirls border she drew so I stamped it in Regal Rose craft ink on kraft cardstock (colored in with prismacolor pencils).  The dp is Basic Grey bittersweet (my favorite right now!) Love is Warm & Fuzzy - what a cute sentiment!

oooh, I like the color reveal! when something swtiches from bw to color it always reminds me of Dorothy landing in Oz.
Also, that is a super cute sea horse. I was going to make one for the tropics set, but it never happened.

Love, Love, Love these cards! The sea horse image is awesome, but your magic card is AMAZING. I also love that you used something other than copics because it confirms you can make FANTASTIC cards without having all of the newest tools.
