Nonni and Sandie's kit-part 1


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 OUTJill. 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.

I can't wait to see what Nonni has made form this same kit. Take a look here and you will see!

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?



  1. Mmmm I love the soft water color look in your first card, Sandie! This is the thing I don't know how to make with watercolors, I don't know where to stop! :) Your butterfly is very pretty!The sentiment is so fab floating there too. The dramatic look of your second card is wonderful and something new from you I think, a new style! I love the mix of colors and the layout. Wonderful card! I look forward seeing your next card, this swapping business is so much fun! :)

  2. Wonderful, Sandie ... both of them! The butterfly is so delicate ... and I love how you've made the sentiment 'float' (must try that idea!)! The hummingbird is rich and dramatic ... and so striking! It's great to see what you and Nonni create with the same goodies ... so fun! Hugs, Anita :)

  9. Wow! I really liked seeing both of these cards! Each one is unique and special in its own way. On the butterfly card, I love the delicate splatters and the metallic touches. On the hummingbird card, I adore how you incorporated the brushos! You did a great job on these and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
