Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator Blog Hop: Day One

Welcome to Day One of the Gina K. Designs Card Kit & Illustrator blog hop! Today I am featuring the new set I designed called Happy Hearts. This set also comes with a coordinating die! The release also features a great new set by Melanie called Embroidered Flowers.

When I envisioned this set, I thought of all the times when the kids were young when I had to make multiple valentine designs for their class lists. I also thought how nice it would be to have this set for anniversaries, weddings or even thinking of you cards! I try to make my sets so versatile and multi-functional! I want you to get the most bang for your buck!

Clean and simple traditional valentine

The triple swirl circle with the micro-heart is so fun. I love to color in the tiny heart with a glitter pen or a marker! I tried to make it large enough for mix and match sentiments, while keeping it petite and delicate!

Embossed background gives texture and depth

This card uses a moonlit fog base. I love the way the red heart pops off the card! I used a stencil and heat embossed the background with white embossing powder! Sentiment is also heat embossed!

Clean and simple card on kraft

I stamped the heart image and colored with copic markers! Such a clean design, but easy to replicate or switch out sentiments!

Clean and simple

The red card stock just pops off the Ocean Breeze. I stamped the die cut hard with obsidian ink and loved the look with a few black micro-hearts.

Clean and simple sympathy card

I used the triple circle and added a few white gel pen dots and colored in the micro-heart. Sentiment from Layered Eucalyptus. Heart stamped on white and colored with copics.

Clean and simple rainbow hearts

These open hearts are easily colored with copics, watercolors or other markers!

So a few little housekeeping items:

  1. I love your enthusiasm for the work you do – it’s contagious! And the way you’ve used color to make the hearts pop! I commented on another blog that your happy hearts with does really lends such depth to the hearts it’s like they’re beating off the page. This is a really fun set, and your examples are inspiring as well! Thank you Beth!

  6. Love your heart cards! They may be clean and simple, but pack a big punch of style. One of your cards gave me an idea for a valentine for my best valentine- my husband of 39 years (this April).
