Card Kit Time!

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Good Morning!

It's Thursday and the work week is almost done! Woohooo! Don't really have any plans for the weekend but I'm sure we'll find something to do; we usually do. Hopefully it doesn't rain as much as it did last weekend and we can actually play outside instead of inside. Some sun would be nice: is that so much to ask?

Lately I've haven't had too much time to play with any stamps outside of my DT duties, but when sweet Miss Kadie sent Mary and I our June card kits, I was so happy! Finally a card I can create with no (self-applied) pressure involved! :)

Everything in this kit SCREAMED summer! From the paper, to the embellishments to the sweet image itself - now if only the sun would give in to the peer pressure! ;)

I think I've only colored up one other gorjuss girl and I don't own any in my collection either. What's up with that?! I think this needs to be rectified soon! They're SO sweet and I've seen some amazing cards made with them out there in blogland!

For my card kit, I decided the best way to get the most out of all the papers Kadie sent us, was to heap on the layers! So I went straight to my favorite challenge site that I knew had a sketch with LOTS of layers and this week they didn't fail me! I used the Friday Sketchers #105 sketch and distressed all the layers to play up the 'beachy' look. Miss Little Ducky was colored up, as usual, with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. I added just a touch of Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist over the main panel and machine stitched it to a layer of white glitter paper for a bit more sparkle - just like the way the sun makes the water sparkle! The sentiment is from the recently released By The Sea set from There She Goes.

So that's what I did with the set. I'm off to check out what Kadie and Mary did with the kits now - you might want to do the same! :) Thanks so much for stopping by today - it's always appreciated!

Absolutely beautifuL! I'm so embarassed that I don't have mine up yet, especially when it was my month for the kit! BUT I absolutely love this way of getting to stamp with each other. And you've used this month's kit so beautifully! I really love the layers and that you've used the flowers. That intricate stitching around the nestie is AMAZING! I can't believe you can get that so perfect using your machine! You're sooooo good! Beautiful coloring on little miss too!
I'll have my card up very soon. In the words of the Goonies, "shame shame, I know [is my] name!"
