A Happy Hearts Hop With Tami!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smiley from millan.net

Have a happy hop with a new Gina K. Designs stamp set, Happy Hearts, designed by the amazing Tami Mayberry!!!!


  • Stamps: Happy Hearts
  • Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White, Lipstick Red
  • Ink: Vivid Brick Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories: Pearls, Stickles, Ribbon

Now first.........I expect y'all to notice that I did NOT use pink on a card with hearts even!!!!!! LOL One reason is because.......okay, okay........I gotta give you a break from my Pinkdom once in a while!!!! And also I'm in LOVE with this new Pure Luxury cardstock, Lipstick Red!!!!! I used the Vivid Brick Ink Pad to stamp the hearts and then cut them out making sure to leave a white outline so they'd pop out from the background. I couldn't resist bling, however!!!! LOL Lots of mini pearls!!!! Well, ya know.......it's about as CAS as I seem to able to go!!!

I'm also really starting to enjoy designing the insides of the cards........pretty simple, but it really does add that extra little "something"!!! Thanks to our amazing Jessica for the inspiration to not leave the insides of my cards blank..........her cards, inside and out are stunning!!!!
