November kits at Gossamer Blue...

The Gossamer Blue kits for November are now available, and they are a beautiful mix of Heidi Swapp's new September Skies line, Maggie Holmes' new Open Book collection, special one-of-a-kind pieces by Gossamer Blue and more! I'll show you a few things I made with the kits...
This first card is made with the November main kit only. I did add some seam binding from my stash to string up the tags, then cut out the word with a die by Papertrey Ink called Wonderful Words: Congrats from one of the papers in the main kit. The background is cut with a Card Base-ics #2 die by Papertrey Ink.
The next few cards were made with a mixture of the November kits. Papers are from the main kit. The banner is from the Ephemera pack and the rub on is from the Open Book rub ons!

On this one, I really liked the floral paper in the main kit, but didn't want to cut it up into little pieces. Then you can't see all of the pretty colors and patterns in it! This paper was pretty just as is! So I decided to keep a whole panel of it, and just die cut a butterfly from the paper, then placed it back in and just popped up the wings with foam adhesive.

Last, but not least, a really quick card set, which was inspired by the logo on the Maggie Holmes Open Book packaging! Notice the double ended banners? I trimmed my paper to resemble the banners in her logo and placed them a little off-kilter, so you could see all of the pretty colors and patterns stacked on top of each other.

The papers I used here were all from the main kit, then I used the pre-made banners and the stamp set by Heidi Swapp from one of the add-ons! The butterflies were cut with the Beautiful Butterflies dies by Papertrey Ink.

Please do check out the Gossamer Blue kits, they are so pretty! And there is nothing to lose - if you decide to stop your subscription to the kits, there is no cancellation fee. I just think the kits at Gossamer Blue are beautiful and so inspiring! I would have liked to make a TON more, if only my time would allow this month. Can't wait to tell you about my next venture I'm currently working on, but I'm busy, busy trying to get it all accomplished...what a month! I'll have a card tutorial coming on November 11th made with these kits also. Thank you for reading and taking the time to stop by, sweet friends... xo

What stunning cards. I love the layered banners with that beautiful butterfly on the last card. I I also love the gray polka dot paper that you used on the first two cards. I always love your creations. They are just so beautiful.
