Gina K Design February Preview, Day 3 – Dream Birds

Hey all – thanks for checking back.  I have a fun and whimsical card to share with you.  Using a new set designed by Asela Hopkins, Dream Birds.  It is one of my favorite from this GKD release.  There are lots of adorable bird images included, but for this project I went with one of the sentiment images in the set.  All I could hear in my head as I created this project was the beginning phrases from the song by the Beatles, “All You Need is Love”. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I have “hearts” on the brain.


I stamped the word LOVE once onto Pure Luxury White (my white cardstock of choice), and then masked it off and stamped twice more.  I then cut them out all as one image. Using my quickie glue pen I adhered the various colors of glitter to the letters and mounted them atop the three punched hearts with pop dots to add lift and dimension. These elements are mounted onto a layer of Pure Luxury Passionate Pink which is then layered onto this wonderful digital paper by Theresa Momber called Wings of Hope.


To add just a touch more whimsy, I added some hot pink crystal flourishes from Zva Creative and a border of pink pom-pom trim.

Now – ready for some news?  For a limited time, a free Card Kit will automatically be included with each purchase of the Spring Florals stamp set – another great set being previewed tonight and designed by Gina.  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 projects, please visit Jessica Fick's blog.
