Have you seen the Copper Mountain January kit, from Studio Calico? Stephanie was asked to create a custom Bella Blvd paper, specifically for this Studio Calico kit. It is the fabulous yellow heart patterned paper, and on the opposite side is a fun hand drawn doodle pattern (this same pattern was originally aqua in the Snapshots collection). There is the 12x12 version in the main kit, and then the yellow hearts pattern appears again in the 6x6 paper pad in the card kit.
I had fun working with the main kit and the paper pad from the card kit to make these four cards.
I used a strip of the yellow heart patterned paper for this card. The card kit paper pad has smaller scaled versions of all of the papers in the main kit. I love scaled down papers for card making. While the yellow heart paper in the main kit has the doodles on the opposite side, they are a bit on the large size for card making. So I pulled out a scrap from my Bella Blvd stash, as there is a 4x6 card on one of the papers with the doodle pattern on it. Perfect for adding a strip to this card.
I love the wood veneer circle piece in the main kit. I cut it into two pieces, so that I could use it on two different cards. I sprayed the smaller piece with some red Mister Huey misting spray from Studio Calico.
I used a larger piece of the yellow heart patterned paper for this card, paired up with a piece of this fabulous woodgrain paper from October Afternoon. I got to use this woodgrain paper when I guest designed for October Afternoon a few months back, and I absolutely love it. So I was really excited to get another sheet of it in the main kit, and a few 6x6 sheets of it as well in the paper pad.
Aren't these little puffy hearts the cutest thing? I think I might need to find more of these for my collection.
I used the larger piece of the wood veneer for this card. I backed it wit a piece of grid patterned paper from the paper pad. If I had thought about it sooner, I probably would have done the same on the first card, behind the red wood veneer piece. I machine stitched along the striped paper strip, and then adhered it to the card with pop dots.
I added some of the little chipboard circle accents to the circles in the wood veneer piece, which I sprayed with a navy blue Mister Huey misting spray.
I also loved this darker blue patterned paper. I definitely stuck with the red, blue, yellow, and brown (woodgrain) colors for these cards. The woodgrain circles here are actually left over from a layout I made months ago. I have a ton of them and have been holding onto them, because I love that paper so much, and knew I'd work them into lots of projects.
I machined stitched down the centers of the circles, and then added the puffy heart stickers to the center, along with a small heart flair button.
