Studio Calico January Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their January kits. They all were already available during an exclusive pre-sale for subscribers only and they are now available to everyone for purchase in the Studio Calico store! Be aware that they often sell out quickly, so get yours today to avoid disappointment!

Today, I’m sharing a few cards I made using the Far Far Away main card kit and stamp add-on.

I'm starting out with this one I created using a stamp set from the main kit. I simply added a pink Neocolor II Crayon for some colour, and some gold glitter for a little extra sparkle!

For my second card I used the emboss resist technique and watercolour paints. All stamps used here are from the Cube Stamp and Die Set.

hey

I really love how versatile this set is! You can use it in so many ways, not only for backgrounds, but as accents as well. So many possibilities! I used Gelatos to create this watercoloured background and two veneer butterflies from the main kit to embellish my next card.

Stripes, stripes, stripes and a red belt were the first thing that caught my eye, lol! For my card I used leaf stamp from the Peony Scrolls set by Altenew.

Studio Calico December Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their December kits. They all were already available during an exclusive pre-sale for subscribers only and they are now available to everyone for purchase in the Studio Calico store! Be aware that they often sell out quickly, so get yours today to avoid disappointment!

Today, I’m sharing a few cards I made using the Park Ave. main card kit and stamp add-ons.

For my first card I used a stamp set that comes with the kit. I stamped the skyline in blue and grey shades. To add more interest to my card I did draw the outlines around the images and some birds:

the best is yet to come


Using a sun stamp from the stamp set that comes with the main kit, I created this clean and simple hello card. I simply inked up the back of the stamp and stamped the solid circles. I used green alpha stickers for the sentiment:

hello


For my next card, I used the Terrarium set by Life.Love.Paper which is one of this month's add-on stamp sets:

good thoughts


My last card is definitely inspired by the recent class by Ashley Goldberg. I used inks to watercolour my background, added gold glitter and a stamp from the Terrarium set. To create my sentiment I used green alpha stickers that I coloured with black pen:

thanks
