Such a bad blogger am I! I left town and forgot to leave you all with a post to keep you interested in my little blog while I was gone. No worries, I’m setting up a few to post over the next week or so while I’m traveling for work and for vacation.
Studio Calico’s June Kit – Paper Moon – showed up 2 days before I was about to head out of town for a week. I’ll be honest – this wasn’t my favorite kit to scrap with. I knew that before I got it. It’s just not my style. BUT I did know that it would be perfect for cards and mini books. So I ended up using almost the whole kit on those projects 🙂 Today, I’m going to share the three cards I made using the kit.
So my name is Kim and I’m so addicted to stitching. And after seeing Amy Tangerine’s hand stitched tags in the kit I was clearly inspired. I stitched on one layout and now on this card for my dad. As soon as I saw this kit I knew that I’d be playing on space puns for my card titles 🙂 And oh boy do those thickers take ink WELL! Love that.
Father’s day card for my father in law. I was inpired by the Sassafras Starter paper with these big sweeping lines radiating from a sun. I took bits of paper left from making my mini book and followed those lines. I love these patchwork style cards 🙂 I also stitched, because hello, it’s what I love to do! And I added some Sassafras embellies from my big box o Sass stash because who doesn’t love a flower.
Last card was for my most wonderful cousin who graduated from high school this year. She is going my rival university…but I still love her enough to make her a card, hehe. More ink on those awesome cardboard thickers and if you can’t tell, I LOVE those OA blue and cream mini letters. I could live off of thickers and mini letters I think. Anyway, this card was based on me being determined to figure out how to use that OA punch paper. I cut out the rocket and decided to do another silly pun by telling her to shoot for the moon. Then I stuck that rocket man stamp up there as the moon to shoot for. My cousin loved the card, so I was glad. Too bad we are going to thrash her basketball and football teams this year….are those card sending occasions 😉
Okay, those are my June cards. I’m going to work on making more cards to have a stash I think, I really really do enjoy making cards and they are a nice way to break up making only layouts as I’ve been doing lately. I’ll share my mini in a post scheduled later this week 🙂
