Hi there! I have a card for you today using past Studio Calico card kits and a Papertrey Ink butterfly die cut (from the Life is Beautiful die & stamp sets). The background papers and cardstocks are both from the kit and I made a tag out of white cardstock and twine. The sentiment is generation stamped with Hero Arts Black ink onto a journal card from my stash. The butterfly is stamped in Lemon Tart (from Papertrey Ink).

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a really great week!! Happy crafting!

Hey friends! Today I have a card I made with an older Studio Calico card kit.

I punched the 4 hearts out of pattern paper from the kit with a Fiskar’s punch. The polka dots and the sentiment stamps came with the kit as well and I used a rock n’ roll motion on different green inks to blend them together a bit. The buttons on top are from the kit as well and are adhered with Tombow Mono liquid glue (love that stuff!).

I LOVE how the colors in this kit coordinated so well together. Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Good morning!! It’s lovely and rainy here and I am happily enjoying some Christmas music while my son and I play. He loves pretending to be Santa Claus and fills up all of our stockings for us with lots of little trains and puppy toys. πŸ™‚

I have a couple fun cards for you today made with a new (to me) Fiskars hexagon punch I have. I put these cards together using a couple of older Studio Calico Card Kits and a frame die from Papertrey Ink.

For the first card I stuck with the greens and yellow color tones and punched the hexagons out of multiple different pattern papers and cardstock.

For the second card I stamped the sentiment onto all of the gray hexagons for a fun tiled look. πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Thursday! πŸ™‚
