Hazel from Hazel's Paper Designs, Shona from Twine Around and I each prepare a mini kit every few months to share some 'virtual' crafting time together. Today is time for the fourth Honey I Shrunk the Kit that Hazel has put together which is full of wonderful festive goodness!
I made 4 cards by combining the elements with some of my own dies and papers. First up is the beautiful dove:
I partially inked the wings with some tumbled glass distress ink and a bit of wink of stella and combined it with the beautiful sparkly embellishment that Hazel included in the kit. They were layered on a piece of the patterned paper from the kit and I silver embossed a sentiment from My Favourite Things to complete the design.
Secondly I made a card featuring the fabulous sentiment from xx that Hazel provided.
I watercoloured the background with zig watercolours and spritzed with some shimmer spray. I die cut it with a round die and added a bow die cut from Penny Black to give the look of a bauble. I used Uniko's snowflakes in complementary colours in the background.
Hazel included a fabulous big merry Christmas die cut in the kit and I used it twice:
On this card I coloured the sentiment with some silver wink of stella and then clear embossed it a few times to give additional shine. I simply combined it with a few Uniko snowflake dies and some silver mirri.
I used the negative of the die cut as a stencil and sponged through with red ink (festive berries, I think). I added some stickles to the letters and used the sweet Clearly Besotted robbins from the kit as accents. The holly die is from Paper Smooches.
I can't believe that I got 4 cards from this kit and still have bits to play with including the lovely vellum and cardinal die cut that Hazel included. Here is a pic of the kit as it arrived:
I hope that you like my 4 festive cards and will check out what Hazel and Shona have come up with - I am sure that they will have created completely different designs with the same supplies!
Thanks for stopping by :)
