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!!!
