Gina K. Preview Day 2: Little Critters & Chocolate Bunnies


speedy recovery
Thank you for joining us for Day 2 Gina K. previews! My first card is made with stamps from Theresa Momber’s set called Little Critters!  I think it’s so funny to have a sentiment say wishing you a speedy recovery with an image of a turtle, it’s like an oxymoron!  I had fun discovering the cuttlebug traffic jam embossing folder mimics the turtle’s shell so I had to use it!  This card was fun to make, using my prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits which I rarely use anymore!  I also discovered some Basic Grey brads that coordinated perfectly with the cardstock colors I used!
chocolate bunny treat
The next stamp set is by Asela Hopkins called Chocolate Bunnies so I had to make a chocolate treat!  I love this cute little bunny who almost seems to be a little on the bashful side.  I just covered the treat with some pattern paper and attached the image with some ribbon with a little Hoppy Easter sentiment.  Super quick treat to make – I think it just took about 15 minutes!
Don’t forget we have a release party going on at StampTV on Thu evening 7:00-10:00 CST.  You are sure to have lots of fun with Gina K, stamp illustrators and design team and be able to see all the full stamp reveals so you can make your shopping list!!
