Krafty Kat Kit cards

I have mentioned before that I am in a group of local stampers called the Krafty Kats. There are six of us and we get together each month to share our artwork and have a lot of laughs! We have such a good time together!

Each month one of us puts together a kit of papers and embellishments and then the next month we have 'show and tell' to see what everyone made with the supplies from the kit. It's always amazing how different all the cards are.

Today I'm showing three cards I made from a recent kit that Marcy put together. The patterned papers are from Heidi Grace Designs' Harvest Row collection. On the first card, I used the wicker chair image from Lockhart Stamp Company that Marcy had stamped and embossed for us. After I colored the image to match the paper, I drew a border around it while it was still in the square Nestabilities die, leaving space for the sentiment, which is from Amuse Artstamps. The bottom edge of the card front was cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Fancy Scallop Pierceability die.

For the second card, I used a photo stamp from The Stamping Studio. I stamped the pitcher of sunflowers on vellum with Black StazOn and then colored it on the back side using Copic markers. The image was cut out using deckle edged scissors.

I colored the paper flower in the bottom right corner using Copic markers and added the bead for the center to make it look like a sunflower. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages set.

This last card includes stamps from Gina K.Designs' Botanical Dreams (the flower) and Papertrey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages (the sentiment). The 'leaves' under the bow/brad/flower combo were made using a Martha Stewart punch and were colored with a Copic Spica marker.

These kits are such fun to play with and it's always so interesting to see how everyone used the supplies included in them.

Hope you've had a good week - mine has been busy and I'm looking forward to the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Waaaaah! I wish I lived closer so I could play too! What great papers, love what you have done with them. I think I like the last one, Celebrate Today, the best. Thanks for sharing the fun you and the Kats have.
