Happy Thursday! I can't believe that it is already July?! Can you? Yesterday was pretty uneventful, although today we will have guys installing new siding on our home. I can't wait to see what it will look like finished. I have been busy crafting and stamping away the last few days... today I may actually have to start cleaning house a bit more. Somehow we usually end up with people over for 4th of July, we have a great view of the fireworks in town and usually set some of our own off.
A Paper Pumpkin Thing is going to shift to the first Thursday of the month. What this means for you is that even though we are in July, we are creating with Junes kit! It is easier for all of us because of the uncertainty of when we get our packages from the post office.
Todays hop is focused on the Expressions in Color Kit from June! This kit coordinates with the Artistically Inked Bundle and Expressions in Ink suite! Lets take a look!
Today's projects came together rather quickly, I have made a cute little box to hold a small pack of candy and this amazing card took maybe 20 minutes to come up with! The kit was so easy to work with as it coordinated with the Expressions In Ink suite.
The card started with the vellum die cut in the kit. It was so cool to find out that the die in the bundle would fit right over it. I chose to die cut it out of the Gold and White stripe in the Designer Series Paper. I inked it up with my blending brushes and adhered it over the vellum using our adhesive sheets. The Polished Pink layer has been stamped around the edges using the background like stamp in the Artistically Inked stamp set. I also did this to the strip that goes across the card front. A strip of Basic White with a Gold heat embossed sentiment was the perfect touch over the top of the Expressions In Ink designer series paper. This was perfect for the Bumblebee card base from the kit!
So don't ask me the exact measurements right away, I scored, it fit and I was done! I accented this little treat holder with a bit of the card front from the kit cut into strips to fluff it up a bit! A bit of Gold Thread was the perfect touch!
