Today I have created a card using a new set called "Donuts":

keep calm

But that's not all! My daughter saw me stamping "cookies" and immediately wanted them too! How could I refuse, right? So I stamped a few more donuts and created a mini garland for her play kitchen:

It's not perfect, but I didn't have very long to put it together *wink*. 

That's all for me. Your next stop is Mariana!
Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Studio Calico April Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their April kits. They all were already available during an exclusive pre-sale for subscribers only and they are now available to everyone for purchase in the Studio Calico store! Be aware that they often sell out quickly, so get yours today to avoid disappointment!

Today, I’m sharing a few cards I made using the Lisse Street main card kit and add-ons.

My two first cards are created with a stunning stamp set from the main kit. I love floral stamps and this one is no exception, just beautiful, don’t you think?! I coloured the images with watercolours and added some glitter here and there for extra sparkle. I used here the Invitation Grid Stamp but the card kit paper pad comes with several printed grids ready to use with this stamp set!

Envelopes I used here are from the Card Basics set!

My next card is created with a stamp set called Best Stamp Ever, another set with beautiful floral images!

Studio Calico March Reveal

Hi everyone! Yesterday, Studio Calico revealed their March kits. They all were already available during an exclusive pre-sale for subscribers only and they are now available to everyone for purchase in the Studio Calico store! Be aware that they often sell out quickly, so get yours today to avoid disappointment!

Today, I’m sharing a few cards I made using the Odyssey main card kit and add-ons.

My first card is created with a stamp set from the main kit. I heat embossed the leaves with white and watercoloured them:

get well soon

For my next card I used a cloud stamp from the same set to create a background. Then I added some patterned paper, a sentiment created with alpha stickers and washi tape stickers from this month’s add-on:

feel better soon

Next card is quick and super easy to do and would be really easy to customize for any occasion. I stamped these cute little animals and I decided to go for a loosely watercolored look:

it ain't easy

My last card is created with the "hey" plastic die cut word that comes with the main card kit. I simply used it as a mask for some misting and watercolouring. I again used alpha stickers to complete my sentiment (I just used a permanent marker to colour them brown):

hey


I had so much fun playing with this month's kit and I hope you feel inspired to check out these new products! You can also pop over to the Studio Calico gallery for more inspiration and ideas from the Creative Team!
