***Cathy K is the winner!!!!****
I have been working on some fun stuff with a kit from Green Tangerines! They are having a huge two-month-long blog party with lots of creative hosts and over $1000 in prize giveaways!
So, it's my turn to be the hostess and I have some cards I made to share:
I am a huge fan of mixing colors and patterns, so I dove right in with mixing several of the yummy patterned papers from the kit to make this Kiss Hug card. One of my favorite things in the kit was this strip of polka-dotted fabric...I used it more than once!
I love this little October Afternoon monster...he looks like my youngest does when he wants to be picked up, which is what inspired this "hugs" card. And I used that cool fabric again...
I used my Fiskars Scalloped XL Seal of Approval, Large Mint Condition, and Medium Round 'n Round punches to make these flowers. The kit had a package of blue gems from Kaiser that I used to bling them up.
Here's another mixed-papers-lots-of-patterns card where I used the cool clock transparency and the custom-made circle embellishment that was in the kit. I added a kraft circle (Fiskars circle cutter) between the two pieces and used some more of the blue gems (I still have a bunch of those blue gems left over and I used a ton of them!). I don't know if you can tell, but I cut down some of the foam Thickers alphas to make the word "rock" because I wanted it to be a little smaller than the original alpha size. The "o" is the top part of a "g" and the "c" is the original "c" turned on its side and cut. The "r" was left alone and the "k" was just shortened on every side.
There's still enough product in this kit to make at least 193 (rough estimate) more cards (or some layouts! or a mini book!) and now I get to GIVE A KIT AWAY! Between now and 5pm PST (that's 7pm Texas time, or figure out your own time zone's deadline...) on Thursday, May 21, leave a comment and I will randomly choose a winner who will receive an awseome Green Tangerines kit with more than $50 worth of scrappy greatness in it! I'll post the winner's name tomorrow night, so check back.
As far as leaving a comment goes...just say "hi" OR tell me what your family's favorite movie to watch together is (we are looking to expand our movie choices around here!).
OH, and I almost forgot! If you visit the Green Tangerines blog, you'll have another chance to win a free kit!
So, to re-cap:
