Last week I shared a few layouts that I had created for Jenni Bowlin Studio, and today I am sharing a handful of cards that I created that were up on their blog yesterday. They were all made with their December 2012 Papercrafting Kit and Artisan Add-on, both of which are currently 25% off. They are having a 25-50% off sale on all of their 2012 kits, and you check them all out HERE!
I loved all of the great embellishments in the Artisan Add-on kit. Such a great mix to play with, and I have TONS left over. This kit comes with two sheets of patterned paper, so I did pull in some scraps from the papercrafting kit as well. I knew I wanted to get a few birthday cards in, since I always need them. In fact, we've already given this card away.
I love those glittered chipboard alphas. I'm not a fan of messy glitter that I find stuck to me for 3 weeks after coming within 7 feet of it. So I always love when a pre-glittered product doesn't make a huge mess and stays where it's supposed too.
I wanted to use the little fabric tab on this card, so I chose the "You & Me" sentiment to coordinate with the "Let's stick together" saying on the tab. I was addicted to using the aqua patterned paper on most of my projects, so I scraped up any little scraps I could find.
I took this little strip of the aqua paper and freehand cut it into small little squares, overlapping them across the card. Added a nice little bit of interest, as opposed to just adhering down a strip of paper.
I used another one of the stencil cards on this card. I painted it white this time, and used the exclusive stamp in the Papercrafting kit to lightly stamp over the stencil with some aqua ink. Just a very suble touch. I then backed the stencil with some reddish patterned paper.
I had this fun kraft typography number set, and choose the 24 and 7 to make it a "24/7 Love" card. I used most of the suede leaf trim on my layout, but had a few leafs left over. I tucked them under the numbers, which I adhered with pop dots.
I knew I wanted to creatively use a bunch of the kraft typography numbers on a birthday card, and this is what I came up with. I created a frame around the card with a piece of the yellow gingham pattered paper. I added the little scraps of the reddish patterned paper as an afterthought. Which is why I went with small pieces that I could tuck in, since everything else was already adhered.
I want to thank Jenni Bowlin Studio for having me along to play with some of their kits. It's not often I create with kits, but I like the challenge of working out of a bag of coordinating product that's all been assembled for me!
