Next Group of Kits

The first card today was made with Kim's kit using the Stampavie Roses for You image and Bo Bunny Sweetie Pie Squeeze patterned paper. The image is colored with Stampin Up markers and you can't really see it in the photo, but I then painted the pink roses with opal Shimmerz. The corners of the image panel were punched with a ticket corner punch and embellished with clear gemstones. Black brads were added to the horizontal strip to tie in the black dot centers of the flowers on the patterned paper.

The second card was made with Kris'
kit. The image is from Memory Box and the patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet line. The penguin is cut out and popped up with dimensionals on an oval that I punched with one of my Marvy scalloped oval punches and stamped with a border from the PTI Oval Borders & Corners set. The center strip is cut from a panel embossed with a Cuttlebug hearts folder.

The final card is from Rachel's kit. She sent two of the most gorgeous papers - the foiled hearts paper I used for my background and the sparkly paper I have going diagonally across the card. This is not what I planed on doing for this card, but when I was cutting the sparkly paper, the paper slipped and the blade cut it crooked, so I had to improvise with what was left. I used my paper piercing tool to create the dotted lines between the panels of foil paper and finished the card off by popping the heart up with dimensionals. Oh, and it's not easy to see in this picture, but I traced all the swirls in the stamped heart with a clear spica glitter pen.

That's it for today - I'll be back tomorrow with the last three VDay kit cards!


  1. Love them all...I think the diagonal cross of the glitter paper is fun!

  2. I love your coloring on Kim's! All very cute!
