Went down to the Craft Room to work off some disappointment today. As you see in the previous post...we got the results of the 'home' inspection on the house we put an offer in on...

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!
Until then.......
Blessings to all of you!
