How I killed a card kit – Part 2

Hey all!  If you have no idea what I’m talking about, maybe you can go back and check out Part 1 of this series.

Today I’m going to show you the rest of the A2 cards that I made from the SSS August 2013 Card Kit. 


I used the stencil again, this time with a light turquoise ink to match the CS in the kit.  I die cut a heart out of the strip with a Nesties die and fishtailed the end.  I sewed the strip onto the card base and stamped the sentiment inside the heart cutout.


This card used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, pink CS and B&W patterned paper from the kit and the stamp set.  The twine is from my stash.


This card used a couple pieces of PP from the kit and a sentiment that I made by cutting up 3 of the stamps in the set (“me laugh,” “my heart happy,” and “every day amazing”).  Don’t be afraid to cut up your stamps to make new sentiments – they’ll still work together after that just fine!


For this card, I used Tombow markers to trace inside the holes of the stencil in a rainbow of colors, then took my waterbrush and moved the color to fill in the shapes.  I finished it off with a stitched-on sentiment flag.


This last card was an attempt to use up the last whole piece of 6x6 PP that I had left.  I saw the one empty tag on the sheet and was so happy to find that the little hello sentiment from the stamp set fit in it!  Again I colored the heart with a red copic and to make sure you don’t miss it, I die cut an arrow from Your Next Stamp and popped it up on foam tape to point it out.

Please join me tomorrow as I wrap up the series with Part 3!  TFL!
