It was therapeutic and I am now heating up leftovers for tonight's dinner and thought I'd post while waiting for it to heat up in the microwave oven.
I had purchased a few kits way back and forgot about them...have you ever done that? No, not you!!! I was cleaning up the Craft Room, sorting things and I ran across these kits. They are Paper Tole kits, kind of like 3D images.
The first kit had the designs to make four cards. So I matched as best I could card stock to the designs. And this was the result of those...
This is the name of this kit
I love pansies and these 2 cards are too pretty! I layered the card stocks and the background paper that came with the kit. I added Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246-$5.00) to give it bling! I will add a Sentiment when I use the card. Sometimes it is good to leave the card blank till you use it.
I used Stampin'Up! Card Stock on these 4 cards.
I used Pool Party (122924-$7.00 pkg./24) and So Saffron (105118 pkg./24) for the layers on this card above. Added the Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246-$5.00) and done!
I used Blackberry Bliss (133675-$7.00 24/pkg.) and Garden Green (102584-$7.00 24/pkg.) for the layers on this card. The Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246-$5.00) look like dew drops on this card!
I believe these are Dogwood flowers, I am not sure, so pretty!
I used Perfect Plum (101889-$7.00 24/pkg.) and Pear Pizzazz (131201-$7.00 24/pkg.) for the layers on this card. A spray of Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246-$5.00 100/pk.) and wowzers!
These flowers look like Cherry Blossoms to me. I used Rose Red (102544-$7.00 24/pkg.) and Garden Green (102584-$7.00 24/pkg.) for the card layers on this card. A few spots of Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246-$5.00 100/pkg.) and this is a winner! Love how these turned out...even the Hubster liked them!
The next Kit made 6 cards. The kit had the florals to punch out and 6-2pc. card bases. The cards are those swing cards...It took several tries on a dry run to figure out how to put them together, but I did figure it out and they assembled easy. You are to add your own ribbon and other embellishments. It had White punched out butterflies, I decided to use the Stampin'Up! Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set (123759 clear mount-$15.00) and colored them in and matched the butterfly to the Stampin'Up! Candy Dots in the same color family.
This is what the Kit looked like:
I added some odd gemstones a friend gave me on the butterflies. I do not have a name or a number, as she just cut them off a roll and gave them to me! The sentiment I used on all the cards' labels, is from a retired Stampin'Up! Stamp Set. I also used other rhinestones and Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246 150/pkg. $5.00)
The card below, I colored the butterfly with Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Marker (131902-Subtles 10 pk.-$29.00) and matched the Candy Dots-Subtles (130933-$6.00 100/pk.) Aren't these Day lilies beautiful?
The next card below, I colored the butterfly with Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Marker (Subtles-131263-10 pk./$29.00) and I used the Subtles Candy Dots (130935-$6.00 100pcs/pkg.) The Day lily and Shasta Daisy are so pretty!
This card below I used Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Marker (Subtles 131263 10/pkg. $29.00) the Candy Dots Subtles (130933 100/pkg. $6.00)
I think these flowers are Violets. So sweet!
This card below is my favorite. I colored the butterfly with Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker (Subtles 131263 10/pk. $29.00) I also matched the Candy Dots (Subtles 130933 100/pkg. $6.00) The pink Rose reminded me of my Mom. If she were still here, she would have received this card. Also used some Stampin'Up! Basic Jewels (119246 150/pkg. $5.00)
This card below I colored the butterfly Pink Pirouette (Subtles 131263 10/pk. $29.00) and also used Candy Dots Subtles (130933 100/pk. $6.00).
The Shasta Daisy and the pink and yellow Pansies are pretty!
This last card I colored So Saffron and Calypso Coral (Stampin' Write Markers Subtles 131263 10/pk. $29.00) I used the So Saffron Candy Dots from the Subtles Candy Dots 130933 100/pk. $6.00)
I don't know what flowers these are. I think they are a type of Rose, but I am not sure. Can someone let me know please!
So I did work off some disappointment and enjoyed my time in the Craft Room. I am looking forward to going there again tomorrow!
Blessings to all of you!
