Welcome to the July Stampin’ Creative blog hop – this month our theme is “Cool for Kits”. You may have arrived from Emma or started here – either way, you are very welcome!
Kits are brilliant way to try card making or paper crafting, without a large investment. Stampin’ Up! always have a kit or two (or more) in each catalogue and they vary in what they come with. The Watercolour Wishes kit, which I’m going to talk about, comes with everything you need to make 20 cards, including a couple of cute little ink spots and the stamp set. You might need to buy some glue but that’s it! If you decide you like this kit and order it though me (click on the link on the right), I’ll throw in a tombow glue for free to say thank you.
I love the font of the stamp set that comes with this kit and I’ve found the sentiments to be very versatile. I came up with a very easy card design using washi tape a while ago and made multiple versions – if you’ve not seen them click here and here to go to my previous posts.
For today I’ve decided to focus on the stamp set.
I recently got the Baker’s Box framelits, so I wanted to play with them. I cut the two pieces out of the gorgeous Floral Boutique DSP – I love the Night of Navy and Whisper White patterns. I stamped “Just for You” in Delightful Dijon, added the tiny heart from a strip of three (also from Watercolour Wishes) on Whisper White and then used a Baker’s box framelit shape to cut it out. I cut another out of Night of Navy, cut it in half and framed the sentiment and used Tombow to do that and adhere it to the box. It’s finished with the beautiful mini striped ribbon in Delightful Dijon. I didn’t notice this at first in the catalogue – it’s a must-have.
For the card, I did a sort of reverse of my washi tape cards. Quick, simple and easy!
I cut an A6 piece from another pattern of the Floral Boutique DSP, then cut it on the diagonal using my trimmer. I moved it over and cut another strip. I lined them up on a thick Whisper White card base and then stamped the “Thanks” from Watercolour Words in Night of Navy. I adhered the DSP with tombow – job done! Quick and easy to reproduce and it really shows the DSP off.
