Hi there! It’s time for the new Runway Inspired Challenge! Today's challenge is a little bit different! This time, each one of the DT member has picked their favourite piece from last Oscars ceremony, to use as inspiration and here’s mine:

And here’s what I came up with inspired by this gorgeous dress:

thank you thank you

Lots of misting, a gold glitter for some sparkle and wood veneer stars to finish my card off. The "thank you" sentiment is cut with Silhouette Cameo.

Studio Calico March Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their March 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 Odyssey main card kit and add-ons.

My first card is created with a stamp set from the main kit. I heat embossed the leaves with white and watercoloured them:

get well soon

For my next card I used a cloud stamp from the same set to create a background. Then I added some patterned paper, a sentiment created with alpha stickers and washi tape stickers from this month’s add-on:

feel better soon

Next card is quick and super easy to do and would be really easy to customize for any occasion. I stamped these cute little animals and I decided to go for a loosely watercolored look:

it ain't easy

My last card is created with the "hey" plastic die cut word that comes with the main card kit. I simply used it as a mask for some misting and watercolouring. I again used alpha stickers to complete my sentiment (I just used a permanent marker to colour them brown):

hey


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!

Studio Calico February Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their February 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 Cirque main card kit and add-ons.

For my first card I used a really cute stamp set that comes with the kit. I stamped the clouds in Emerald City shades. To add more interest to my card I fussy cut the watercoloured balloon image and popped it up with foam tape.

just a note

I was all giddy over the patterned papers that came in this month's kit! For my next card I used some strips of them along with this lovely Spring craft die by Paper Sushi and other embellishments from the main kit.

HAPPY spring

Did I mention that I love this month's paper pad so much? Lol! Because I really really do! Especially the one designed by Ashley Goldberg! It is so great that it stands alone without many embellishments. I also love that the Spring craft die goes with the older "happy" craft die!

happy spring

For my last card, I used the Sending You Sunshine stamp set by 1canoe2 for Studio Calico. I did lots of fussy cutting for this one, and combined with embellishments from the main kit.

just for you


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!
