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.


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.


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!
