Designer
Hi! I’m Gina and I have loved Winnie the Pooh for as long as I can remember, the book is one that I always keep near. Some of my favorite people in the world call me Auntie Gina, and they are the ones who I started making cards for, and still do a lot of the time. I live with my husband and my dog in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I have MS and utilize making cards as a form of therapy. I love reading and going on adventurers with my husband and our nieces & nephews.

You’re a good egg

You’re a good egg

In order to get the embellishment mousse colors where I wanted them on this card, I finger painted with them. That was actually really fun. I don’t think as adults we take the time to finger paint nearly enough. Granted, it was messy, and I had paint all over the place, but it was worth it.

Some bunny loves you

Some bunny loves you

This card was fun to make, the detail on the egg is yet another product from tonic studios, this time I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I am in love with another one of their products! I already have a bit of a collection of the drops going, and I adore the glitter paste. One of the best things is we have a locally owned craft store that actually carries quite a bit of their products, so I can feel good about picking them up there when I get the chance, which I like.

Teacup fairy

Teacup fairy

I just love this little fairy! She even got me to break out one of those coveted pieces of paper that I hate to cut into. Ok, I have come to the realization that the paper is so much better if it actually gets used on cards than if it gets hoarded in my paper boxes for that future ‘perfect’ card. It is similar to the cleaning method of reminding myself that ‘Things aren’t memories, memories are memories.’, so if I am holding on to something just because it reminds me of something is silly.

Candy for the birds

Candy for the birds

I guess these birds would like some candy. Honestly, I couldn’t think of anything to put on their little signs, and then I thought well everyone likes Easter candy. Well, at least they are cute. Which is what we say about the kids when they do the exact same thing. Huh, maybe that’s where the idea came from…

Flower bunny

Flower bunny

Years ago my oldest niece was spending the night at our house right around Easter and when we pulled up to our house there was a bunny just hanging out in our side yard. The magic of Auntie and Uncles house is you just never know when you might spy the Easter bunny doing a little recon work. This card reminds me of that very special bunny.

Hoppy Easter

Hoppy Easter

This is the card I started working on earlier this morning with this sketch. Isn’t the bunny just the cutest? Ok, the other day I said something about not liking Easter all that much. It’s true, but I love the bunnies and the flowers. I think the big problem is that it coincides with allergy season, which is just no fun at all. I am finally not having to wear 25 layers in order to leave the house, but the trees are starting to make it so I can’t breathe or see. There is a reason I am only truly a human in the fall.
