GKD Preview Day 1: Hope is Faith and Hang in There


hope is faith

I’m excited to bring you, along with the Gina K. Designs team, samples using our wonderful new sets for February! 

First up is our Hope is Faith mini stamp set which will retail for $9.95. It was illustrated by Gina K. and created to raise money for the Red Cross to help with the devastation in Haiti. $2.00 of every purchase of this stamp set will be sent directly to the Red Cross throughout the month of February. As the first responders to disasters around the world, the Red Cross is there to help with the basic needs of these people who have suffered so much. By purchasing this mini set, you will help to make a difference to people who are desperate by supporting an organization that works tirelessly to feed, clothe, comfort and care for those in need.

My card base is the gorgeous tan leather, and I paired it with Chocolate Kiss and Innocent Pink, isn’t it a beautiful combination?  I placed some copper nail heads on the butterfly’s body and the sentiment tag. I also colored in some glitter pen accents on the butterfly for sparkle.   I also placed some beautiful digital papers designed by Theresa on the inside of the card (picture below).  These will be available for purchase on Thursday.

Next up possumis Hang in There, illustrated by Theresa Momber.  It’s a fun collection of realistic animals ‘hanging around’.  As you can see on my card, it has a possum hanging on a branch.  Although they are interesting looking creatures, I can’t help but think this little guy is cute!  I added some nautical netting and jute twine as well as some neutral buttons for a fun card to encourage someone to hang in there which I stamped on the inside.
