Welcome to reveal night with Studio Calico. I was excited to see what Studio Calico cooked up for this month's Card Kit, and wasn't disappointed! Both the main kit, Sugar Rush and the add on, Taffy are full of beautifully patterned paper, dainty little stamp sets and fun sentiments.
For my first card, I used the Sugar Rush kit. I created a card base from pink cardstock included in the kit, and added a block of white cardstock from the More White cardstock set. A little strip of patterned paper from the Sugar Rush kit is notched at the end, and I wrapped some twine around it, with a little piece dangling off the paper strip.
I used the kite stamp images to create a diamond background on the white cardstock base. I then masked portions of the sentiment stamp with washi tape to create a multi-colored sentiment. All you do is mask the portion you don't want ink on with washi, ink the stamp, remove washi tape and stamp on the card. Finally, I added the glittered crown die cut to dangly twine, and punched circles and some diamonds from the negative of the glittered crown die cut.
This card also features product from the Sugar Rush kit. First, I created a card base from the More Colors cardstock set and added strips of patterned paper to both the top and bottom edges. I wrapped decorative ribbon around the card at diagonals.
A heart is machine-stiched on a patterned paper block, and a little border is created from punched patterned paper hearts. An epoxy heart adds some dimension atop a bit of bakers twine and a heart pin.
The Taffy add-on kit is nothing short of fantabulous. For this card I covered a white card base with patterned paper from the add-on kit. I then die cut the digital "love" image from gray cardstock and backed it with some foiled vellum, so the patterned paper base shows through. I embossed the bottom edge with a polka dot border and added a notched foil vellum strip to a strip of patterned paper to "ground" the die cut love sentiment. A little bit of patterned paper peaks through the cardstock at the bottom of the card.staple. The gold stickers finish off the sentiment!
For my final card I wanted to combine this month's digital files with the Taffy card kit add-on. I created a white card base and then added patterned paper from the Taffy card kit add-on. I wrapped some pink ribbon around the center.
I used brushes like the kites, confetti and circles plus digital files like the sentiment to create a design in photoshop for the card. After, I printed it on white cardstock and adhered it to the card base. Some stitched punched velum hearts add a little dimension.
