Studio Calico May Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their May 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 Carolina Moon main card kit and add-ons.

To create a background for my first card I used a small stamp from the set that comes with the main card kit. I stamped it in green, one by one to create a circular pattern. Then I just added this awesome cork DAD die cut:


For my next card I created a background using a leaf stamp again from the set that comes with the main card kit.  The sentiment and number dies are from the Birthday Bear stamp and die set. I used the negative space from die cutting the numbers and replaced it with numbers cut from a red cardstock. I inlaid the red numbers into the negative space but I adhered them inside my card.:


My last card is also created with stamps from the main card kit set and the original inspiration for it was a kaleidoscope tin, one of my favourite childhood toy (a little tube with mirrors containing loose, coloured objects that show up as beautiful symmetrical patterns as the tube is rotated). I stamped the images with Emerald City, Mint Hint, Something Blue, Flamingo and Lemon Zest ink, then I finished my card off with a star shape die cut, a flair badge from the kit and a bit of white thread.


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!

Today I have created a card using a new set called "Donuts":

keep calm

But that's not all! My daughter saw me stamping "cookies" and immediately wanted them too! How could I refuse, right? So I stamped a few more donuts and created a mini garland for her play kitchen:


It's not perfect, but I didn't have very long to put it together *wink*. 

That's all for me. Your next stop is Mariana!
Enjoy the rest of the hop!
