Hi, everyone! I've been super busy lately! I've been using my Simon Says Stamp card kit and making cards for people who have ordered them. I love doing custom orders! My Studio Calico kit finally came! After two months in a row of mess-ups from UPS...well I guess I'm getting a little tired of them. Oh well! Today I used my kit in a way that it wasn't intended to be used - I made an Easter card! Check it out!
Isn't it so very cute! I love using my card kits in different ways. I'm finding that the Studio Calico kits aren't really themed in ways that are appealing to me, but that's okay! I just change them to fit my tastes! This particular stamp set from this month's kit has turtles, chameleons, alligators, and frogs. Not really my thing, but I did like the papers!
I usually don't remember to take photos during my crafting process, but today I did! I wanted to show you how I used the stamp set to make this card. The image I used is actually supposed to give color to the body of the frog. As soon as I saw this set I knew I wanted to make Easter eggs. I used various colors of SC ink to stamp out my eggs and then grabbed a bunch of different images from my various stamp sets and gave the eggs white accents. I cut out each of the egg shapes with scissors.
I layered multiple papers all wonky and trimmed off the excess from the edges of my card. I added a strip of polka dot paper on top and then used various thicknesses of foam tape to adhere my eggs. I made my sentiment from the blue alpha stickers that came in the kit. Then I used some Candy Shoppe enamel dots to add some interest to my card.
That's it! I hope this inspires you to use your card kits in out-of-the-box ways! See you next time!
