Gina K Release Day: Heartily Yours and Love Notes


 bee card & gift
Tonight I have a sweet bee creation to share with you using Nina Brackett’s new sets, Heartily Yours and Heartily Yours Additions!    I made a cute little box using a perfect pattern created by Nina, heart favor box!  It is so cute and is the perfect size for my sculpey clay creation I made to match the image on my card!

Here is a top view of my card, I stamped all over it with various heart images in both sets and sponged the edges with Ranger antique linen ink.  I cut the heart window and placed some clear film so the little bee can peek through!

Here is a close up of the little bee I made out of clay to coordinate with the cute little bee Nina drew in the set – I even used red wire and formed it in the heart shape like in the image.  I totally adore this!  I made a 3” mini card, using the new Lipstick Red cardstock as well as Black Onyx and a little Basic Grey Sugar Rush designer paper which Gina will have in the store with this release.

On my last card, I used the whimsical assorted flower image in Heartily Yours as well as a few images from Vintage Borders, in particular, the music notes which coordinates nicely with the sentiment ‘Love is friendship set to music’ which is in the new One Free with Three set called Love Notes!  It is a beautiful collection of script and print fonts in classic Gina K. style with sentiments for focal images and insides of your cards.  I used Wine with Everything and Innocent Pink on this card, and also sponged antique linen distress ink for a more vintage feel.  You’ll also see I added a strip of wine gold-lined organdy ribbon under the flourish vintage border.

And she made the bee out of clay - of course she did. Me - if I tried to make a bee I've have to write a book explaining it was a bee in order for people to see what it was...Really - that is so precious - the card and the little bee made out of clay. To have such talent - I'm so jealous...
