Every few months a few blog friends put together a mini kit and share the creations that they have made with it.
The idea, originated by the lovely Hazel from Hazel's Paper Designs, was to put together a small A6 size kit which wouldn't be too costly to post and she, Shona from Twine Around and I have been sharing our mini kits for a year. It has been a lot of fun and this year we been joined by 2 more blog pals....the amazing Sarah Platt from Sazzle Dazzle and Sandie from London Days. They are both amongst my fave cardmakers so I am really excited to see what they come up with :)
I put the kit together this time with the theme 'You Are A Gem' and it was full of sparkly themed items! I managed to make 4 cards and here they are:
I watercoloured the Hero Arts starry background die and combined it with the sentiment (from WPlus9) and some glitter tape.
I added some blue watercolour to the card base to set off the sparkly diamond die (Lil Inkers). A strip of patterned paper and glitter tape along the edge. The die cut shine is from WPlus9.
I watercoloured lots of gem stamps from WPlus9, cut them out and created a pile of gems combined with the punny sentiment.
Before watercolouring it I inked through the Hero Arts die cut to create a starry panel and added some splatters and ink along the edges. A few die cut stars frame the sentiment from WPlus9.
Here is the kit that we have used this month:
Thanks for sticking with me through all of these photos!
See you again soon,
