Today, 25 designers are helping celebrate Melanie’s 2nd Anniversary illustrating with Gina K. Designs! I have been having so much fun designing with her stamps – from the very beginning! She is one of the best illustrators out there, hand drawing most of her images, because she’s good like that! Her sets are so versatile and they are very fun to mix & match too! Here are a few of my favorite projects and a never before seen one at the end!
First up is her 2nd Set, Just So Hoppy that I had so much fun with – I made a huge pop up card using all of the characters. For close up views of the hoppys please see my post The Gang’s All Here
I made this tin for Melanie’s 2nd contest using What’s in Your Tin 2 – What Cancer Cannot Do (click to read the post about the recipient).
Here is a project I made last month, most of the gifts we give are handmade, it saves us money (since we’re building a house and have been on a perpetual budget) and I love making things! 2 of my brother-in-laws in California are big Raider fans so I made them fleece scarves.
Here is a close up of the tag I made, using Just so Sporty and Sporty Accessories. I LOVE having sets to make projects that appeal to the men in my life!
Can you tell he liked it? He nearly always wears some form of silver (grey) & black, showing his team spirit, so as soon as he opened it, he modeled it for us!
