July-2015-Card-Kit-600(1)

 

I love the nautical look and was so excited to get this kit in the mail.   Since I had to make cards quickly for my consignment shop, I grabbed this kit.  After looking at everyone’s inspiration, started cutting paper and designing.

You are a LIfesaver

I wanted the lifesaver to have some pop so I used Glossy Accents to make it more visible. This card screams nautical to me!!

 

Sail Away with Me

I wanted the look of the ship sailing away in the stars. Reminds me of Peter Pan.

 

 

Nautical Thanks

I love the coral paper in the background. A simple design so the beautiful paper is not lost in stuff.

 

 

 

 

Love Card – February 2015 Card Kit

So I dragged my feet to make the cards from the card kit.   Especially since Valentines day is over with, I really lost my desire to create cards with hearts and valentines.   But tehn I found out my sister got the card kit subscription.  I was thinking WAY COOL, we can challenge each other to make cards.  So the goal was to create THREE cards and actually did made FOUR cards.

My first card is the LOVE card.  I liked the die from My Favorite Things and I thought it would work great with the card kit.  I decided to color my own ribbon with distress stain from Tim Holtz.   This worked out great and the color matched the card base.

So here is the stupid mistake I made.  After I made the ribbon,  I took my card front and turned it over to glue it to the base.  Well I guess I did not clean my work space as cleanly as I should have.  Dang it, I got red ink on the front, mostly on the bottom of the tag.  So I ended up cutting a new bottom piece and placed it over the bottom.  Cannot really tell, but zoom in on that letter L and you can see the patch job I did covering paint.   It was not a good day.   But it got better on the next card.

The Challange Ribbon copy

This is a self imposed challenge.  I get the Simon Says Stamp Card Club kit every month.  Sometimes I am so bad that all I do is look at the kit and some of the examples.  And that is it.  So the challenge is to make at least 3 cards from the kits.   PLEASE!!!   At least try girlfriend!!!

Simon Says Stamp October 2013 Card Kit – Autumn Tree

I really like the tree in this stamp set. Because I wanted to use the squirrel, I decided to cut a circle in the card and stamp the tree in the inside with the squirrel at the bottom.  I did different colors ink for the leaves to make it look more like Autumn.

Inside of the card, please ignore the slight cirle on the orange paper.   This paper did not take erasing pencil marks too well!!  And I did it lightly!!!!  Geez!!!
