So Spring Card Kit samples

March2009CardKitMakeMyWorld I have finally gotten all of the March cards uploaded here to the blog, so you can see all of the cards I've made using that card kit.  So far, I have 16 cards made with LOTS of things to spare!  I'm guessing I could probably make another 6 or so cards when I'm ready.

If you look over to the left <----  You'll see a label called March 2009 Card Kit So Spring and it'll have all of the cards I made using this kit.

Unfortunately, I didn't write down all of my measurements for these cards, but I can tell you what stamps or other tools I used to make the cards.

April 2009 Card Kit Cards

April2009CardKit4U Good afternoon all!  :)  Today I'm posting some cards that I made with the April 2009 Earthy Brights card kit from A Walk Down Memory Lane.

I have some more cards that I haven't quite finished yet and they'll hopefully make an appearance on the blog later this month.

The first two cards are pretty much the same, except the sticker is different.  This month, I created 8 cards, but 4 different patterns and just duplicated those patterns for different occasions.

I have cards for any occasion using this kit, which the Doodlebug rubons helped to make this kit very versatile!  I could just choose my sentiment and rub them on.  :)

April2009CardKitHi First, I cut the Brown Cardstock into a 4 1/4 x 12 strip.  Then, I cut that into two 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card bases.  You should have a 1" x 4 1/4" piece of brown cardstock leftover.  KEEP THAT!  :)

Next, I cut the trees into a 3 3/4 x 12 strip.  I cut those down to 3 3/4 x 5 so you'll have another scrap leftover.  KEEP THAT!  :)

I cut my striped paper into a 1 x 12 strip and then cut that down to a 1 x 3 1/2 strip.  Then I took my Fiskars Treading Water border punch and punched one edge.

Next, I cut my ribbon into 4 1/4 pieces.  I inked all of the edges of the papers and layered them together.

Last, I finished the cards off with my Doodlebug rubon sentiments and stickers from American Crafts.

If you look over here <------------------- to the left, you'll see a section called April 2009 Card Kit Earthy Brights.  There, you will find all of the cards I've made, along with the measurements and directions on how to re-create them!  ENJOY!

April 2009 Earthy Brights Card Kit

200904CardKitCardSamples I spent some time last weekend playing around with the April 2009 Card kit named Earthy Brights.

I deliberately tried not to stamp any cards this time, and stuck to using only the goodies from within the kit.  I did pretty good, except the bottom 2 I added a sticker from the American Crafts Puffy stickers in Chestnut.

So far, I have created 8 card fronts, with lots of leftover pieces to create a bunch more!

I have had a lot of requests for step-by-step instructions on how to re-create my cards from my card kits, and I'm working on getting those done, starting from the January card kit.  I didn't realize how many people would want to create my cards exactly as I did...so, you ask...we provide!  :)  I will be working on these instructions this week, and will post them to our blog as soon as the .pdf is available!
