Gina K sneak peeks day 2: Little Critters and Chocolate Bunnies

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Day 2 of the Gina K Designs February release previews!  Today we are previewing two sets, Little Critters and Chocolate Bunnies!  First up is Little Critters, this fun set is illustrated by Theresa Momber, and has 6 images and 5 sentiments.  These images are just darling and I am completely IN LOVE with the mushroom images.

My little froggie card is pretty simple.  I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored him with copic markers to match the colors in the pattern paper.  I cut out both the frog and the mushroom cap.  A couple silver pearls and some burlap string are the finishing touches.  I decided to take advantage of a rare sunny day and take my pictures outside.
Next we have the adorable Chocolate Bunnies set illustrated by Asela Hopkins.  This sweet little set has 4 images and 5 sentiments and is perfect for those Easter cards.  I stamped the little bunny in brown ink, lightly outlined him with copic markers and cut out.  The sentiment is from the set previewed yesterday, Basket Blessings.  Lots of sewing on this little circle card.  Seriously, I need more practice as it took me forever to sew around that circle -lol!
Here are the GKD girls who have previews for you today.  Be sure to check them out and don't forget to comment for a chance to win these stamp sets!!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow for Day 3 of previews.  AND be sure to come by the release party which will be Thursday evening (7-10 pm CST), over at StampTV.

  131. Hi Michele,

    This is the cutest cards I think I have seen all year! My Mom collects frogs and I know she would love this card, and I will need to look into getting her the stamp!

    You tied everything together so perfectly. I love your coloring. That sentiment made me laugh for minutes! I love the paper you used, and the circle! I love your cards with circles on them! I do not have a circle cutter yet. (one day! I especially like the way you tied the string together with one of the silver beads. That really looks wonderful!

    You are amazing, my friend!

    He IS Able,
    Traci S.
