Our Gina K team is sharing projects featuring all seven sets: today I have samples using a couple of my past Gina K Designs releases that are included in this sale, two of my favorite animals sets I've illustrated, the first here is made with "Cuddles and Hugs". Today I created a bookmark using small square punches to capture little cropped vignettes of the different pairs hugging.
The punches I used here are 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" square. The images in this set would make fabulous "inchies", but these aren't technically because I don't own a 1 inch punch! (yet! can you believe?) ;) I colored the images with Copics and matted them onto a piece of Pretty in Pink 1 5/8" x 6 1/4"and a Black Onyx mat measuring 1 3/4" x 6 1/2". I added a few black dots next to the greeting with a black pen and a piercing template. All done, easy peasy!

My next sample shows some quick lollipop cuddlers (huggers? climbers? call them what you want LOL!) These took even less time! I stamped the images on Soft Sand CS and accented a few areas with a white Koh-i-Noor pencil and cut out. Then I used my double slot punch, flipping the punch over so I could line up the holes with where I wanted them (around the koala's arm and in the nook between the cat tails) then slip my little pop through.


My kids got so excited about these I barely got a chance to get them photographed LOL! You could also use a double hole punch, eyelet setter, Cropodile etc, but the double punches are nice because it's one step and the holes are aligned and the right size for the stick.

My last sample uses "Jumping for Joy", Zach meets Olivia! (or, colored this way, "Oliver"!) ;) Here they look like they're kicking around the beach ball, it's simple to create interactive scenes between the animals in this set. I colored them with Copics and popped up the ball (this ball fits a 1" circle punch) I added some green, blue and orange sections to the white Pure Luxury base to match the ball, makes it really pop against the otherwise black and white color scheme. This card is for my son, who just turned 7.
