Today, I have a preview from an upcoming release titled "Zoo Animals" from Gina K Designs illustrated by Asela Hopkins. I've really been loving these sweet animal images that Asela has had for us the last few months. They're SO sweet! And as a mom and daycare provider they're just perfect for all the little people in my life.
Last week, I ran across a card I had made from Asela's last release, wrote a little note and tucked it into my six year olds lunchbox. Let me say, he was thrilled when he came home and told me how excited he was to find a card in his lunch.
So, I knew right away, that the first card I was going to make is for my biggest fan. And, its in his lunch box today. I'm going to get into the habit of sending one card a week, it will just be a surprise what day it is.
I stamped the lion three times to have a paper tole effect. His body is the first layer, then his mane is popped up one level, then his face is popped up a third level. He was colored with Copic markers, then trimmed out, then given all those layers with dimensionals.
I happened to have this orange polka dotted paper handy in my stash pile (see, sometimes it pays to not clean up the scrap pile as I have the perfect pieces right at my fingertips) but then had to do some sorting through my file drawers to find just a bit of this So Saffron Designer Prints for the middle panel.
You'll see more samples of this adorable set on Gina's blog - and then be sure to blurf on over to visit Erika, Donna, Theresa, Kurtis, Jessica, Melanie, Carolyn and Sharri our In the Spotlight Guest Designer this month!

I have been having so much fun working with Gina K Designs over the last year. I got to hang out with Gina this past summer in Chicago, and let me just say she is every bit as personable and sweet as you'd imagine and so funny!!!
To celebrate my two year Blogaversary, I'm thrilled to give all of you a chance at some Gina K Goodness! One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Gina K Designs. You could use that for a new stamp set, or you could buy both the White and Ivory pure luxury cardstocks in both base and layering weights, or it would be about half the cost of the Floral Frenzy Stamp Kit. The choice is up to you.
