This kit is AWESOME! You get everything you need to put the cards together except adhesive, even a clear block, stamps and ink. At the end of my post is a video from Stampin’ Up!
I’m going to show you some alternative cards using mostly stuff from the kit. I just added colored card bases and used Embossing Folders on most. I also used my Stampin’ Blends instead of Watercolor Pencils. More Stampin’ Blends are coming. Wait until you see them all……OMG! June 1st is when the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes live and you can order. The kit is carrying over to the new catalog.
They were so fun to color. It is easier to color each piece BEFORE you punch them out. It gives you something to hold on to if they are still attached.
For these two cards I used Cherry Cobbler card bases & Stampin’ Blends, adhered the striped piece and then embossed with the whole card front with the layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder. All the leaves are colored with Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.You can see the Embossing a little better in this photo. The sentiments are from the kit and so are the labels they are stamped on. The flowers are already printed and ready for you to color.These two cards have a Bermuda Bay card base and embossed with the same folder. I colored with Pool Party & Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends.Next up, Night of Navy card bases, and Stampin’ Blends.All those “extra” pieces, gold foil, stripped paper and velum leaves are from the kit. Oh, and the ribbon too. Both of these cards I used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.
I used Pear Pizzazz & Sahara Sand card bases for these two. Daffodil Delight & Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
This was the first one I did and felt it needed something and started using the Embossing Folders. I used Perfect Plum for the card base.
So whether you do your cards just like the kit or you add your own card bases, this is a fabulous kit. Yes, it might take some time to color all the flowers and leaves, but you can do that while you watch TV. You can make 20 cards with this kit. Great to put in your stash for when you need a card. Don’t forget to “wink” your flowers with Wink of Stella.
I am slowly getting caught up. Tweaked my back while in Las Vegas, so its taking longer than normal. I do have a lot to share with you. OnStage was a blast.
