Card Kit Club #3 "Feathers and Wings"

Hi friends!
Me, Pia and Marina have been having fun sending card kits to each other... And this time it was Pia's turn to send the materials. Her kit is called "Feathers and Wings" and it contained beautiful die cuts, one stamped background, some patterned paper, beautiful stamped image of a bird couple and embellies. You can have a look at the kit photo in the end of this post. I saved the heat embossed background + some of the patterned papers for later use and this time combined the kit stuff with my own stash -on our previous rounds I've mostly worked with only items in the kit. Let's see what I made! :)

In my first card the beautiful fairy + silver mirrored card come from Pia. I just bought this Tim Holz sun rays stencil a couple of days ago and thought it would go nicely with the fairy. I used the same inks to fairy's wings and the background for coherent look. The sentiment comes from Chocolate Baroque and is heat embossed with white powder. 

In my second card I used more of the silver mirror card, some patterned paper, the bird couple and rhinestones from Pia. Actually all the ingredients of the card apart from the heat embossed sentiment are from the kit. I colored the birdies with different shades of grey Copics and went for a monochrome look. I sponged some ink to the background too to make it a bit less white. I even embellished! Way to go me! :) I love how this turned out. 

My next card might be my favorite from this round's kit cards. The dream catcher die is amazingly beautiful! I colored it with Copics and added many multi-colored rhinestones from my stash. The patterned paper comes from Pia -I altered it a bit with ink smoothing. The white heat embossed sentiment is a bit hard to see in the photos but I promise you it looks pretty IRL! :)

My final card is the most clean and simple from this round's cards. I combined Pia's paper, feather die cut and sequins with a sponged+stenciled background from my own stash and added a black and white heat embossed sentiment-strip for contrast. This is a nice card too I think! 

Here's still a photo of the kit:

Thank you so much Pia for these wonderful goodies and sorry girls that I'm AGAIN posting my cards later than we agreed -they have been ready for days, someone should just remind this airhead about writing the posts on time!!!


  1. WOW!! I have just been to Pia's blog and now I get to come see all of your stunning creations with this kit!! :) I so love that beautiful fairy and how you've used it on your design! The sun burst stamp and pretty metallic strip bring her to life!! I love that sweet bird image've done an amazing job with it! Love the soft and pretty colors of the dream catcher too! The feather design is stunning with that warm colored background!! Awesome job with some amazing creations on the kit! :) TFS!

  2. I was so excited to see what you've both made and I love what I see! I was a bit anxious my kit didn't contain enough, but I tried to keep colors similar for the possibility of mix and match. I've used the fairy on a few occasions already, but your card looks nothing like any of mine. I've got that sunray stencil and might try and use it with this fairy next time, love the look. As for the birdie I love how you colored it in shades of grey, looks so classy. Also great tip on using just a little piece of DP and accentuating with string. Gorgeous! As for the dream catcher I love this die, but need some more design ideas for it. Mission completed! Fantastic colors! And it hasn't occurred to me to color that white engraved paper, I still got loads of that left to try. The feather card feels modern and gender neutral, super! I love what you made with my kit and now I got some more inspiration on how to use my stash.
