Good morning!

Today we have a really fun and inspirational blog hop planned for you, featuring the amazing New Day Card Kit.  The New Day Card Kit is our first kit designed especially for card makers, and it includes all of the goodies you see below!

 

You may recognize some of the elements from our Reflection Scrapbook Collection, but we also added in some other embellishments (plus a gorgeous 6″x8″ stamp set) that are just perfect for cards.  Additionally, the paper pack is 6″x6″ – a favorite size for card makers.

I love using kits because they help me make quick cards.  Sometimes I want to spend hours creating a masterpiece, but other times I’m in a rush to whip up a card 10 minutes before I leave to leave for an event.  That’s where the New Day Card Kit comes in!

For my first project, I used the stamp set that is included in the kit.  I stamped out the flower in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red inks.  The butterfly was stamped in Mango Smoothie, with a touch of Coral Berry on the wings.  Next, I cut a diagonal line through the cardstock (without cutting all the way through), and fussy cut around the butterfly.

I scored around the edge of my card base, and stamped a sentiment in Jet Black ink. The flower/butterfly panel was then adhered with foam tape onto the card base.

 

My second card was even easier!  First, I cut down a gorgeous watercolored paper from the kit to 4 1/4″x5 1/2.”  Then, I stamped out a sentiment in Jet Black ink onto a scrap of cardstock.  I then took one of the adhesive wood veneers, pressed it into my VersaMark ink pad, then embossed it with our gorgeous Golden Peach embossing powder.  I stuck the frame to my sentiment strip, then adhered that to the card.  I finished everything off with a few enamel dots (I used both shiny and matte, which are included in the kit)

SPECIAL OFFER:
