Oh Happy Day! | Gina K. Designs July Release

Hello there, I hope your week has gotten off to a good start!

The July Gina K. Designs release is live and today I’m sharing a card featuring the new Happy Flowers stamp set (check out what else is new)!

When life is hectic, as it has been lately, beautiful stamp designs like this one hit the sweet spot for me. The line art is detailed enough to stand on its own, either with or without some spotlight coloring as I’ve done here, but also not so detailed that it becomes difficult for me to paint or color more fully. I’m still working on feeling confident with watercolors, so these nice open petals and leaves give me lots of room to play with shading!

Let’s Get The Paw-ty Started | Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero Countdown + Giveaway

Hi there and welcome, I’m glad you’re here!

Today is the first day of the three-day countdown to Monday’s Hero Arts April release. The new kit and add-ons go live on Monday at 10am Pacific time!

If you’ve seen any of my Instagram stories (I’m @skypaperscissors over there) then you may know that my boy cat LOVES pastry. He harasses me every weekend morning and tries to bulldoze through anything between him and my dish! So, this card is inspired by him, because I’m pretty sure this is what he dreams about 🙂
