The flu does not keep me out of my studio, though! But I did decide that this week I wouldn't worry about my stash-busting, try-something-from-my-studio quest and just focus on enjoying whatever little bits of energy I had to give to crafting. So that brought me back to my monthly card kits, which have been tempting me on my desk for a couple of weeks now.
I showed you all card last week I made with this month's Studio Calico card kit that had the painted butterfly last week. Here are three of the other cards that came from the kit! I am really, really happy that I reinstated my kit subscription with them-- they seem to be getting better and better each month! At some point, I will post about my views on the differences between the two kits to which I have been a subscriber. Today, just a little art and inspiration!
This one is a basic one using two patterned papers, stamps, a punch and some sequins. SO pretty! I am trying to remember how much I like things I make with lots of white space. It's just so hard when you love color and pattern as much as I do. But a small amount of great color goes a long way, as you can see...
This one didn't photograph as well as I would like, but it is just soft and pretty and shows off the lovely palate in the main card kit this month.
This last one was made using mostly the add-on kit. As a general rule, I try not to buy the add-ons because they seem to be much more expensive for what you get in them. But I just LOVED the colors and the stamps (which I haven't even used yet for any of these!). The stamps have balloons and great sentiments and they just make me think of a summer yard party!! I will try to make something out of them and post them sometime just for fun. :-)
That's it for this week! I will share my Simon Says Stamp March kit creations next week. That kit is awesome too, and I feel like I have only scratched the surface so far!
Do you have card kits you love? I'd love to hear about them if you do.....
