Card Kit Series ~ Post 2 of 5

Welcome back to another installment of this....

Card Kit Series from Wendy Coffman... to get this set check out this post.

Check out my cards that are the sunny owl cards here :)

Today I will show you the card with 6 hearts on the front... with this card Wendy avoided an extra layer of paper by using a coordinating size stamp on the paper!  Genius... so let's take a closer look at my first card...

 I lost the last inner circle.. you see with Wendy's design she sent 6 light blue circles, 6 smaller designer paper circles and 6 hearts that I punched out :)  I lost one of the designer paper circles and instead of stealing one out of my stash I decided to go NAKED!  lol
 The inside is my favorite... A cute owly pair are saying hello!  I signed it with a little glitter added!  I love the sparkle of CTMH Glitter Glitz Gels :)
If you look closely at Wendy's she recommends inking edges with chocolate ink... but I find my style is more bright so I used Holly hock to match the rest of the pinks on my card :)

The other card is full of mess ups but I will give you a quick peek so you can see how different one card can be using your imagination ...
 I stamped and tried to emboss and didn't see the glitter that escaped... it was old embossing powder and I threw it out with a lesson learned... I should have added more of that stamp I guess looking at it now to add pattern to the card but instead I made it 2 love birds sending heart kisses to each other....
 Inside I did tone on tone stamping and made the letters chevron striped!!  Love it :)  I still think I may keep this for my honey... shhhh.. another secret to keep!  lol

I really enjoyed making these cards and learned a lot about what I like and experimented too in lots of good ways and just a few better embellish ways.

Happy crafting and creating!!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Inspiration Saturday and BLOG CANDY winner will be drawn!  Yay

  2. I absolutely LOVE your cards, Aunt Kathi! You always do an adorable job, and I seriously can't tell that you ever messed up on any of it. That's a mark of a good crafter- if you mess up, change things around so nobody ever knows (and then you had to go and give it all away by telling us. :)!

  3. Kathi, I don't see a thing wrong with your second card! It's lovely. I also like the blue circle on your first one. That's different, unique, and it looks great!
