thanks

My first card features the Fresh Freesia set. I stamped flowers in black and coloured them a little. To finish my card off, I added some delicate colour splatters.

It took me less than ten minutes to create the next two cards. They have pretty same design, I only used different colours and greetings. And these adorable stamps are from the Baby Zoo set!

Studio Calico July Reveal

Hi everyone! I'm bit late with my reveal projects this month, but as they say, better late than never, right? Last week Studio Calico revealed their July kits along with launching a new website. If you are not familiar with all the changes that have taken place check out the Studio Calico blog for more details.

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

My first card is created with a stamp set from the main kit. I stamped images with black and added some colour with solid stamps:



For the next card I used the same set to create a fun pattern and used watercolours to colour it.


My next card is super quick and easy to create. I fussy cut some squares from the patterned paper pad and added a sentiment made with the Blackout alpha dies.


I love this month’s washi tape add-on. I used it to create a background for my last card. To finish it off I added a sentiment created with the Hey Girl craft die and gold stars stickers.



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!

Thanks for stopping by today!

What inspired me this time was a pop of color peeking out from under a dark coat. Here’s what I came up with:

hugs

I used here floral images from the beautiful In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet with Joni Andaya set along with the "hugs" die cut. I accented some of the elements with a bit of Glossy Accents for some dimension and shine!

Studio Calico June Reveal

Hi everyone! Time definitely flies! I can’t believe June is almost here! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their June 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 Galileo Main Card kit and add-ons.

For my first two cards I used an adorable stamp set from the main kit. The bunny, ice creams and gorgeous script sentiments - I am so in love with these stamps!

love summer

thank you

For this card I used the ice cream scopes to create a colourful background.

My last card is created with the Party Animals set by Life.Love.Paper (which also includes coordinating dies!). How cute are these party animals?! I created some fun pattern and added a touch of watercolours, allowing the ink to run a little.

fantastic birthday

All cards and envelopes I used here are from the Card Basics add-on.

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!
