GKD Preview Day 3: Dream Birds and Spring Florals

dream birds

I have several simple one layer cards (that are 4”) to share with you using the new set Dream Birds illustrated by Asela Hopkins!  I love the whimsical images in this set, and had the idea to have them take center stage on these mini cards stamped on kraft cardstock and colored with Koh-i-noor colored pencils!


Here is a close up of the butterfly card, which is my favorite.  I loved coloring in the butterflies with different colors and patterns.  I also love this sentiment which was hidden in the first picture.

Our next set is perfect for Spring!!  It’s called Spring Florals, illustrated by Gina K! 
I used the new beautiful Lovely Lavender cardstock with Chocolate Kiss, a lovely combination!  I actually stamped one of the florals directly on the lovely lavender with VersaMark ink, but you can barely see it in the photo, it’s quite soft & feminine. I added a little machine stitching with brown thread, the fancy corner punch and pearls to complete the romantic feel on this card. 

For a limited time, a free Card Kit will automatically be included with each purchase of the Spring Florals stamp set. The entire kit includes the stamp set, a binder sheet, the instructions and materials to make 3 complete cards for $19.95. For more details on the cards, please visit Jessica Fick’s blog.

Then, check in with each of these Gina K. designers to see all the beautiful projects they've made with the two stamp sets previewed tonight!
