Recently my dear friend Nonni and I have been swapping crafty kits. Last time Nonni made up the kits for us and you can see the cards I made from this kit here and here.
This time I made up the kit with the same goodies for Nonni and myself. I forgot to photo it!
Today we are sharing the first 2 cards we made.
Here is my first card:
Here I used a butterfly from the kit that had been heat embossed in gold. The butterfly is from Happy Little Stampers. I water coloured it in purple and then just splashed a few drops over the card. The die I used here was a pressie from team member at TIME OUT, Jill. I have used vellum and glitter fun foam for this. I popped it up on foam and just love the way to seems to float.
I will enter this card into:
Just Us Girls photo challenge-gone with butterfly
And now for my second card:
The Humming Bird (Uniko) was from our kit. It has been heat embossed. I then water coloured in green and used WOS to add sparkle. I then played around with brushos to make this background. I die cut the circle and used the brusho card to back this. The just popped up the bird on foam pads to add a tiny bit of dimension. The sentiment from The Ton was just stamped on some left over brusho card.
Will be back another day with our next cards from this kit.
It is really a lot of fun to swap these kits with crafty friends. Why not have some fun and do this yourself?
