Gina K Mix and Match Hop

The Gina K Designs illustrators are hopping today to share some fun ways to combine the new release stamp sets. Hope you will join us as we Mix and Match!
For my first project, I used Stamp It Big (for the lines across the front of the top of the camera, small blue flower), Spoon Me! (Sentiment and small Polaroids, hearts); and Simple Hearts (messages on Polaroids and ring on the camera lens) to create this little camera treat holder:
I used the clear pillow box (SRM Stickers) to make the camera part.  I filled the camera with Hershey's kisses and the little stamped Polaroids to add some fun notes inside.

Next, I have a card that pairs Stamp it Big (large sentiment, small hearts), and Stately Flowers 6 (Valentine sentiment) and Skater Diva:

I wanted to show the Skater Diva in a different way so I stamped her behind the punched heart and it looks like she is just ready to give a hug to her friend!  The Red Hot Gingham ribbon is from the Gina K Designs Color Companion Collection.

 Here is a simple greeting pairing Stamp it Big  and Stately Flowers 6:
I stamped the group of flowers from Stately Flowers 6 and cut out the one flower on the edge.  I did this again and cut out the flower and two of the leaves so I could stack them up and add some dimension.  I embossed the large "Thanks" sentiment from Stamp it Big to finish off the simple design.

And....this one pairs Stamp it Big with Birds and Blossoms:

Just a fun, bold birthday greeting.  I cut out the bird using the cut file and then stamped the bird in black to have a bold image to break up all the color.  I used Ocean Mist Gina K Ink to stamp the sentiment (love this color!) and tied a little bow using the Ocean Mist Organza from the new color companions collection.
Finally, I have a card that pairs up Lovely Ladybug with Lots of Letters!  (ok...so Lots of Letters was from a prior release but I thought of this card idea and HAD to do it!):
Get it?  I was such a PAC-MAN nut when I was young. When I saw this particular ladybug design, I immediately thought of it and had to make this:

 I used Lots of Letters to spell out the sentiment.

 Well, that's it for me.  Now head on over to the rest of the illustrator team to see what they chose to MIX and MATCH:
