Full Reveal of Park Ave Card kit

Hey there friends!! Today's the full reveal of the kits from Studio Calico. If you're a subscriber, the kits and add on's are available on the 27th in an exclusive pre-sale, which you're definitely going to want to do this month. For non-subscribers kits are available to purchase now, so don't delay!!

My first two cards showcase what you can do with the main kit this month. I love that the main kit isn't "holiday heavy," you can still make a variety of cards, but if you need some holiday cards, its totally possible to use the main kit--very vesatile!
I was really liking the black and white floral paper this month, as well as the patterned paper included in the main kit's paper pad. The pinks, yellows and aquas create such a fun contrast with the black and white flowers and text. 
The lovely kraft paper with gold glitter is back in the main kit, but it's even better this time----it's large envelopes that you could use to place cards in or trim to add as a decorative touch to card. And, that calligraphy in the sentiment---ohhh how I love calligraphy!
Oh my goodness the stamp set included in the main kit is so fantabulous!! I loved it, and wanted to try something fun with it. The patterns had a retro feel to them, so I wanted to play with that design. I stamped a block of patterns and used watercolors to give the patterns some pizazz.

Add some drops of water, and while the water is still wet add dabs of watercolor with varying intensities of pigment on the brush and watch it "spread"--it adds a certain amount of colorful flair to the design.
 This card features an add on stamp set; Happy Something. This set has a font-focused feel to it that makes it look like the words are hand-written, making it super low key and trendy.
I stamped the words around in the card base in a circle to create a "frame." Then, I stamped a few birthday motifs, watercolored them and added a vellum panel to give a little dimension.
This next card features the cutest die ever which I am sure you're going to be using ALL THE TIME!! I die cut envelopes from the Dots and Stripes paper pad, and then stamped a playful sentiment with a stamp from the main kit 
I filled the envelopes with fun little goodies like sequined butterflies and wood grain chipboard stars.
My last card features another mini add on Heart Valentine stamp set. These cute little add on sets are nice on the wallet and perfect for your card-making needs! I was really attracted to the ombre dot image.
I stamped the ombre in the center and alternated the image on the sides and then layered a negative envelope die cut from paper found in the Dots and Stripes paper pad.  I added a bit of embossed velum, some string and a playful sentiment spelled our with stickers from the main set.

Serioulsy, this kit and the add on's are going to zip on outta here this release! Make sure to get your products soon, something tells me they won't last long! 

Emily's Park Ave Card Kit Sneaks

Hey there friends! I wanted to share some fun sneaks from the fabulous Park Ave card kit which will be on sale starting Nov 27 for subscribers, and November 29th for everyone. This kit isn't necessarily holiday themed, so you make cards for any event, but if you need to make some holiday cards, it's easy to tailor the product to suit your needs!
My first card sneak uses the main card kit, which includes some amazingly fun product! I loved the floral paper from the paper pad, so I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them to some of the other lovely patterned  included  in the kit. A sentiment stamped on vellum adds an edgy and trendy feel to the card.
This card features the miniature envelope die and the dots and stripes pad. I die cut envelopes from the paper in this pad and filled them with some fun goodies!
My last sneak features one of the add on stamp sets; Happy Something! It's a trendy font set with some cute images that will be perfect for gift giving!

Fun Cards with Studio Calico's Stamps

Good Morning friends! I'm on the Studio Calico blog today to share some fun stamped cards perfectly fun for the upcoming holidays! I'm a sucker for fonts-the prettier-the better. I have been hoping and searching for a long time for a fun and pretty alpha stamp set in a beautiful font, and the So Fancy stamp set from Studio Calico is perfect.  I'm a carmaker, but what I liked best is that the letters are a great size for both card makers and scrapbookers looking to create their own custom title or sentiment. The scrip is clean and pretty, and looks lovely by itself, or with a veneer or sticker sentiment. I made two cards showcasing this lovely  and buildable set.
For this card, I wanted to showcase how nicely the alpha stamps work together to create a simple sentiment.  I started with a woodgrain rub on  die cut rectangle from the LemonLush collection. I affixed it to the card base, and then affixed a floral rub on to the woodgrain.
I then stamped the sentiment on a strip of patterned paper from the Walden card kit and adhered it over the rub on card base. Some gold leaves on a polka dot washi tape with a pin add a fun flair to the card.
 For my next card, I wanted to play with making my own sentiments, so I combined the So Fancy stamp set with the Get Happy collection from Gossamer blue. Stamping the sentiment at an angle was so easy with this set! It would be perfect for making hand crafted Christmas cards. 
 I affixed this woodgrain rub on frame to the card base and then the tree sticker and banner, finally stamping "Get" at and angle next to the tree. Add some embellishments to make your card  a playful and festive Holiday card.

Thanks for stopping by to check out what I made with this stamp set. I am totally IN LOVE with it, and and can't wait to use it even more! What are you planning on using this set to make?
