The Valley High card kit is available tonight at midnight EST at Studio Calico for non-subscribers (available now for subscribers)! I made 9 cards just with the kit you see above - this is the main card kit! Isn't it fun?
I wanted to use the stamps in the kit to create a fun and colorful background, so here I used Sweet Blush ink, Raspberry Fizz ink, Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores ink by PTI. To get the stamped off look, just keep stamping the saying without reinking.
I wanted to feature this gorgeous paper, one of my favorites in the kit, so I used it as a background here and stamped the two flowers and "friends" sentiment onto the tag.
Heart Border die.
Isn't this chipboard fun? I had to use it up on a card. To keep the design simple, yet fun, I wanted to punch circles and add lots of color.
The stripe is actually from the 6x6" paper pad front!
This one was very simple also, I layered some of the papers in a crooked manner for a fun feel and punched a big 2" circle for the center. There is an index strip in the 6x6" paper pad which shows all the fun patterns in the pad, so I cut a piece of that index strip to use on this card to add lots of color.
On the baby card, I used a Button card die to cut the little squares and a Wonderful Words: Baby die for the word. You could also use your Cameo die cutting machine to cut a saying if you don't have these dies!
I love using my dies on my cards and use my Cuttlebug machine to cut them, it's so easy, love that I don't have to turn it on...simply layer my paper and my dies on the plate and hand-roll it through the machine.
I used the Button Card Die again and trimmed around the negative to make a frame. The "happy" was cut with the Wonderful Words Die Collection.
Last, but not least the sunburst or floral stamp was used as a border. I stamped it half way off the edges with Classic Kraft ink to create a frame around the design.
The ribbon in the kit was used to make little ribbon roses, and the leaves were cut out of white cardstock with the Turning a New Leaf die. Here's a little video I made a very long time ago on making these rolled ribbon roses. Skip ahead to the 2 minute mark! Or I have this video also with crepe paper rolled flowers, but it's the same idea.
