And here’s what I came up with:

hello

I was mainly inspired by the geometric background and the floral accents. I used here the triangle background die and the hello sentiment that is simply cut out of a washi taped background.

I hope you're inspired to play along with us! Make sure to visit the Runway Inspired Challenge blog for all the details on how to enter and what you can win! If you're looking for more inspiration then please check out what the rest of the team came up with for this challenge:

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their September 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 Poet Society main card kit and stamp add-ons.

Using a diamond stamp from the stamp set that comes with the kit, I created this clean and simple congratulations card:

congratulations

For my second card I used a big sentiment stamp that I inked up with a few different colours (SC Color Theory: Well Red, Orange County, Coral Bay) to achieve this look:

hooray

The next card is created with the Jar Stamp Set, another stunning set designed by 1canoe2 for Studio Calico! Lots of stars to create my background along with some scraps of paper from the main card kit:

hello

My last card is made with the Circles Stamp Set by Splendid Fiins for Studio Calico. I used here a solid circle stamp to create a fun pattern then added some embellishments from the main card kit to finish it off:

hello

I had so much fun playing with this month's kit and I hope you feel inspired to check out these new products! You can also pop over to the Studio Calico gallery for more inspiration and ideas from the Creative Team!

The theme of the Blog Hop is the Inspiration and I decided to create something inspired by one of my favourite paper artist ever: Kim Stewart. This is the inspiration piece I used for my card:

I wish I had doodling skills like Kim! For my card I used flower stamp from Jane’s Doodles to mimic the background she has created:

hello hello

I also used the Hello die from Studio Calico and added some glitter for extra sparkle.

All new kits and add-ons 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 Sandlot main card kit and add-ons.

I so love the patterned papers from this month’s main card kit. For my first card, I use the pp as my background and also added some numbers that are fussy cut from another patterned paper:

25

For the second card I used some scraps of paper along with sentiment stamps from the sta
mp set that comes with the kit:

you're so...

The next card is made with the Squints add on kit. I used here a gorgeous floral stamp set that comes with the kit and some patterned paper. I also added a piece of watercoloured background to finish it off:

thank you

My last card is also created with this a gorgeous floral stamp set and for my background I used one of my favourite papers from the main kit:

thinking of you
