My friend Hazel of Hazel's Paper Designs organised this kit idea just over a year ago with Sarah P, Sandie and Sarah G. Every two months one of us fills a normal sized envelope with craft goodies (the same for everyone) and mails them to us. We then choose a day to share what we have all made. Its so much fun to see how different our designs are even though we have the same products!!
Sarah sent us the most amazing kit full of the cutest monster images, die-cuts, googly eyes, papers and enamel dots. Here's a photo:
The kit included stamped images from Lawn Fawn 'Monster Mash' and Clearly Besotted 'Eye on You', 'Blast Off' and 'Out of this World'. There were two die-cuts from Pretty Pink Posh 'Peek-a-boo' and 3-square window stitched frame die. The enamel dots, papers and twine are all from Doodlebug and googly eyes from Sarah's stash. I've only recently started making cards with cute characters so couldn't wait to play with these!!
And just to warn you, this is quite a long post, so please bear with me!!!
I'm going to link this card to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge # 17
Will enter this card to the Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge where the theme is 'Stamp it'.
For my third card, I coloured the images in with Gansai Tambi Watercolour paint, as Sarah had stamped them on water colour CS. Once dry, I fussy cut them out and went around the edges with black pen. I die-cut the paper using the same Pretty Pink Posh frame die and adhered to the card front. The images were all popped up on foam tape, along with the sentiment. I then glued on the googly eyes and enamel dots.
I'm going to enter this card in the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Stamp It'.
For my fourth card I coloured the images using my Zig Markers and brush with water. Once dry I fussy cut them out. I adhered the frame (left over from the previous card) and then used two star stamps from CAS-ual Fridays 'Snowflake Splendor' stamp set and stamped a few yellow stars. I wanted some type of sparkle so mixed a little Nuvo Mousse with water in a spray bottle and sprayed the card front. I couldn't capture the look with my camera but the shimmer is amazing!!
I die-cut the sentiment using a Waffle Flower die (from 'Flower Circles' die set). I coloured it using a mini-blending tool and 'Mustard Seed' Distress Ink.
I popped the sentiment circle on foam tape along with the coloured images.
I'm going to link this one to the Simon Says Stamp - Work It Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Stamp It'.
This is my fifth and final card (whew!) and also my favourite!! I used my mini-blending tool and Distress Inks 'Salty Ocean' and 'Chipped Sapphire' to create the background. I then sprinkled it with lots of water and blotted with tissues to make it look like stars. This is my very first 'space' background and its not too bad.
The images were coloured with pencils and fussy cut. I popped the moon, alien and present on foam tape. I cut out the sentiment and put this on foam tape as well, along with the space craft. I then added a few clear sequins (from Pretty Pink Posh) to add some twinkle.
I'm going to add this one to the Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge where their theme is 'Stamp It'.
Wow, if you made it to this point I applaud you!! I could have made at least another two cards with what I had left over but didn't want to make you go to sleep reading this (or maybe I already have.......wake up!!!!).
Now the fun part begins as I go to visit the other 'Honey' girls blogs and see what they came up with. I hope you too will visit Sandie, Sarah P, Sarah G and Hazel and see their amazing creations!!
I'll stop talking now. Thank you so much for coming by!!!!
