GKD Preview Day 1: Happy Hearts and Sung from the Heart

my valentine

I’m so in LOVE with all the new offerings with Gina K. Designs this month (well, I can honestly say that every month I am, but more so this month since it’s all about LOVE with Valentine’s Day on the horizon! 

My first card showcases Tami Mayberry’s new set, Happy Hearts, a fun collection of whimsical to elegant hearts in several sizes with a lot of words to customize your Valentine’s messages!   I used the new Lipstick red cardstock, which is a deep blue red and I happened to have a matching polymer clay color.  I recently started to play with it, and last night I made the clay heart I have as an embellishment on my ribbon.  Isn’t it pretty?  I just smashed my heart from the set to get the impression on it, baked it and glazed it with crystal lacquer and voila~a custom embellishment!  It was fun to make!  Be looking for more from me in the future!  I paired my lipstick red (new cardstock color) with Kraft and Black Onyx cardstock as well as the new beautiful black organdy gold-lined ribbon that’s available with this release!


On my next card, I used the new set illustrated by Rupa, called Sung from the Heart, a collection of pretty images with coordinating sentiments fashioned after some popular love songs.  On my first card, I used the whimsical bird carrying a delicate heart with ‘You are the wind beneath my wings’ what woman did not enjoy the movie Beaches?  It was such a touching tribute to true friendship.  On this card, I used the new Passionate Pink cardstock with Kraft and black onyx, isn’t it a wonderful combination??!  The pink stitched ribbon I used on this card is in the new Romance Ribbon collection.


On my last card, I used the row of hearts hanging from a rod, isn’t it precious?  I used another new color, Wine with Everything for my cardbase and Innocent Pink with Good as Gold here!  The wine with everything gold lined organdy is divine!!  Check out those pink buttons?  It’s pure bliss for pink lovers like me!!
