I'm Filled with Glee

...as I preview my first 2011 GinaK Designs stamp set, Gleefully Yours, today. This one was several months in the making. It was inspired by my girls' love of singing (you can see my post of them at their school's Supertalent show HERE), but I just had to add elements from one of the most popular TV shows in the US right now (can you guess which one? There's a hint on the first card's sentiment). We don't have it in Croatia (that I know of), but I am aware enough that many of my Facebook and paper crafting friends love it. I hope they will love these stamps, too. :-)

Both my cards use the Pink Paislee Cupid Collection. The first one has the vintage jukebox from Gleefully Yours that was colored with Copics and framed with a GinaK Grass Green die cut (Spellbinders' Labels 17) and a SU's Cameo Coral flourish tag (Spellbinder's Fancy Tags). Some buttons, glitter and ricrac finished the card.

Gleefully Yours
This next card has the antique piano image, which goes well with my "Just a Note" sentiment from Lovely Labels 2 set. This set will also work well with the music background from my Vintage Backgrounds set.

Just a Note

Are you ready for more inspiration? Make sure you check out the GKD DT's blogs and be prepared to be impressed. The team is also previewing the new Free with Three set, Smile. Start with Gina's blog, for more info about the free stamps up for grabs during today's hop.

  78. Nina,
    what a wonderful set you created with the Gleefully Yours and it's so versatile and fun, which makes it a lot of fun for the recipients too because we all love music even if we all don't sing. Music is such a universal thing. Both of your cards are perfect and colorful, love the gingham you added to both cards. I'm trying so hard to use and match up papers and get more comfortable layering them. Love your inspirations. =D
