Hello and Welcome to Karen's Creative Designs. I have been enjoying making cards for about 6 years now. I started out making Scrapbooks for the Grandkids. Searched You-Tube for techniques for background and found Gina K.Designs. I was hooked and just had to make cards! I have always been one to have a craft of some sort to do. I have done some crochet, jewelry making, pottery, cake making, ect.... you get the picture! I am hooked on card making and I love that it brings a smile to someones face when they receive a handmade card!

  1. Technique? I”m so new I just try to make a card that looks like a card at this point. LOL
    I love texture, and things that look like metal, so hopefully at some point I’ll learn how to do those things. I think it’s called mixed media. : )

  2. What gorgeous cards!! I just got a bunch of interactive dies from MFT and I am looking forward to creating more interactive cards this year. Who doesn’t love to receive a card that has a fun, moving element!?

  3. I love your top 12! I’m looking forward to hopefully having a more normal year after a terrible 2019. I would like to just spend time crafting for myself for relaxation

  4. Hey there! Flower stamps – a girl can never have too many flower stamps! Thank you for the chance to win giveaways and all your inspiration. Happy New Year!! Hope to see you in person in 2020!

  7. My goals for 2020 is to help the new art co-op I helped start in 2019 to expand and grown with more artists!

  8. Happy New Year!
    My favorite technique; I guess ink blending. I love blending and stenciling different backgrounds for my cards.
    Goals for this year, reorganize my craft room, start blogging and entering card challenges again.
    If I get that far – I want to learn how to create crafty videos.
    Thank you for the inspiration and the chance to win a great prize!

  14. Wishing you peace and happiness in 2020!

    Your cards are really pretty!

    Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  15. Happy New Year Crafters! My goal for 2020 is to learn to color with my Spectrumn Noir markers and to go out of my comfort zone by adding more mixed mediums to my cards. Thank you for a chance to win.

  16. I am looking forward to finishing my “jessie’s craft shack”, I am still unpacking and organizing but it will be my haven once done. My crafty goal is to create 1 or 2 Christmas cards each week so I can have enough to take to local Nursing homes and to continue my cards for tge after breast cancer support group but create more for them.

  17. Your floral cards and designs are beautiful. Happy New Year to you and my cardmaking goal for 2020 is to try creating better scenes with my cards and my favorite technique is layering.

  18. I’m looking forward to completing the renovation of my new craft room in 2020 and my favorite technique is embossing!

  19. What are you looking forward to in 2020? A fulltime position that pays me well for the hard work I put in.
    Any card making goals? To make many throughout the year and send them to family and friends. What is your favorite technique? I love to de cut and use pattern papers to create cards.

    Happy 2020 and I love Gina K. Her store, Village Paper and Ink, is close to my mother’s house and we go every time I am in Wisconsin!

  20. Wow! Your favorite cards of the year are stunning! Your coloring is exceptional, and I enjoy your style. I am looking forward to seeing my daughter graduate from college and move on to graduate school.
    As for crafty goals, that would include learning how to do simpler cards and use my older products more. As for choosing a favorite technique, that would be very hard to pin down, but I do enjoy heat embossing. Thank you for this generous giveaway and best of luck to everyone playing along!

  21. Cheers to 2020!
    I love clean & simple – but my intention this year is to learn to blend color a little more, and challenge myself to use markers/pencils and watercolor a little more in my designs. You inspire me every day! thank you!

  22. Hi Karen & Happy 2020! I’m looking forward to diving into more mixed media type of art this year. I love coloring with Copics, the Distress Sprays, and layered creations from die cuts.
    I love seeing what you create and the inspiration you give! Thank you!

  23. Gorgeous creations! I plan to build up my cards so I can grab one at the drop of the hat. I love Colorburst backgrounds as well as alcohol ink backgrounds!

  24. Lovely creations! I hope to find some furniture pieces to incorporate into my main living space to help me organize my crafty items, and creatively I want to use my stamps more and using them with heat embossing. Happy New Year!

  25. I like to emboss by my embossing gun is missing in action. Do you think I might need to clean up! ha. I want to scrapbook all year and make more cards to donate to my church card ministry. Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. My goal is to scrapbook more. With two grandkids now, I have thousands of photos that I want to use to create. Such a fun hop filled with inspiration.

  27. Your cards are lovely. The coloring of that third floral is gorgeous and I love the rainbow coloring of those last two cards. Thanks for being a sponsor of the Season of Giving hop! My main craft goal is to organize my craft room. It looks like a hurricane went through it. I am terrible at organizing, so this is taking me forever to do.

  28. What I’m looking forward to is making the birthday cards for my niece and nephew and celebrating their birthdays. (6 and 3)
    My card making goal us to figure out how to heat emboss by myself. (My spinal cord injury doesn’t always get along well with the dexterity needed for certain crafts. 😉 )
    And heat embossing is currently my favorite technique.

  29. Great choices for your top cards of 2019! Love your talent and style! In 2020 I am most looking forward to spending time with my husband and hopefully a cancer free bill of health for him! I’d love to learn to do foiling in different ways, in 2020!

  30. Thank you so very much!!! I’m a winner. Yay. Congratulations to the other winners as well. What a great way to start the New Year!
