While I am not officially hopping today, I figured I would show you bonus cards which I created using my stamp set Happy Hearts
This clean and simple card features the sentiment from Have Faith and the open heart from Happy Hearts! The heart was colored in with a copic marker to deepen the image. I whipped up this card in less than a minute.
This card uses the bubble heart on kraft paper. The images were then colored in with a variety of pink copics. Super simple card to replicate!
Be sure to stop by Gina’s blog today for the full hop list
Check back here tomorrow for day 3 of the card kit release – where I will be featuring cards that will inspire you to want the kit!
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!
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!
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!
I stamped the heart image and colored with copic markers! Such a clean design, but easy to replicate or switch out sentiments!
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.
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.
These open hearts are easily colored with copics, watercolors or other markers!

Today the design team will be showcasing sets from myself, Melanie & Emily:
The first card uses Christmas Script by Emily Loggans. I watercolored the background and stamped the trees in both sizes. I stamped the star and dot randomly on the card as well. I filled in the star with sakura stardust. The sentiment is from Christmas Script by Emily! Isn’t it elegant?
Here is a card with some non traditional colors for the trees, but it sure is Merry & Bright! The sentiment is Seasonal Greetings incentive set for this month. You know you want it! Just add Holiday Trees in your cart (along with some other goodies and this set is yours for free. You don’t even have to tell your significant other.)
This card features a moonlit fog base, stamped with the triangle trees in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the trees in with copic markers. The sentiment is stamped on black card stock and embossed with the white embossing powder as well. A few red gems from my stash just bling up the card a notch!
**due to the large volume in this release, I did not get Melanie’s set to make samples. Her set is quite adorable! (add to cart)
You should have come from Gina’s Blog and next you should head to Melanie’s blog! Remember that there are 3 days of blog hops this week and an Instagram hop next week. Swing by again tomorrow for some more eye candy! Let me know which card was your favorite one!
