Here's what I came up with based on it:

happy birthday

I used watercolours to mimic the dress pattern (the bottom part to be exact) and added a label tape along with the fussy cut stamped flowers (from the stamp set by 1canoe2).

I love this oh so cute hedgehog from the stamp set by LifeLovePaper. I simply watercoloured it with "clean slate":

Studio Calico June Reveal

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!

This month's kits are packed with a tone of awesome products! I'm not sure if I could pick one favourite from them all! Today, I’m sharing a few cards I made using the Hello, Hello main card kit and add-ons.

My first card is created with a stamp set from the main kit. I used here a two-tone stamping technique:

hello

For the next two cards I used a watercolour technique with ink pads plus a little bit stamping in black:

thank you

I also added some soft texture to my card using die-cut felt shapes:

thank you

For my next card I used some small scraps of patterned paper and stamp from the CIAO add on. Oh how I love coordinating dies that can be used together with this stamp set!

welcome little one

To create my last card I used stamps from the CIAO add-on kit. These cute animals are just perfect for baby themed cards! I simply stamped them with different shades of green and blue:

welcome little one
