Very photo-heavy post ahead... It's time to post cards made with a card making kit Pia sent. Me, Marina and Pia have been enjoying of altogether 6 rounds of crafting material exchange and I think we have all enjoyed this swap a lot and have all inspired each other in many ways. I want to thank Marina and Pia for this fun fun fun swap!
My first project is a Christmas tag where I used patterned paper, deer and wreath die cuts from the kit. I was inspired by two tags in Tracey McNeely's Christmas Tags- Day 3 :
|Samantha Mann's tag|
My sketch inspiration comes from Sugar Pea Mix it Up Challenge #22
and I would also like to join the Holiday TAGplorations linky party happening at STAMPlorations here . My sentiment comes from STAMPlorations.
Then, my second project that I posted already yesterday for some challenges... Here it is again as part of all the cards that I made with Pia's materials. In this card I used a silhouette die cut from the kit.
The 2 next cards are made using the embossed cards Pia sent. These where so fun and pretty! I had great time sponging, heat embossing, inking, playing with water, adding glitter... Let me know if you want to read more details about how I created these looks. In the green card I also used the big, die cut sentiment Pia sent. I heat embossed it with gold. I'd like to enter the card with the blue sky to the ombre challenge at Addicted to CAS here. My card is not super super CAS... But still sort of clean and simple I think. Is it? :)
My final project is a cute shaker card where I used a stamped image and patterned paper form Pia's kit. I colored the image in with Copics, heat embossed a sentiment with gold powder, cut the frame, Stickled the frame with gold Stickles and created the shaker with sequins that complemented my color palette. I wanted to create a shaker card with more "grown up", traditional Christmas colors and I think it worked well. Adults can enjoy some shaking too, can't they! :)
Pia sent so much (fab!) stuff that I can still make at least 1 if not 2 cards with the left over die cuts and patterned paper. Thank you so much Pia for this generous kit, I enjoyed creating with this a lot! Thank you everyone who made it to the end of this post! :)
