September 2012 Hip Kit… 2 sweet cards by Melanie Jarocki…

Hi Everyone!

It is Melanie here with you today, and I have a couple of fun cards to share with you that I made with our great September 2012 Hip Kit.  There are so many wonderful things in this month’s collection that it made creating my cards a cinch.

I love when pieces of a kit have the perfect sentiment on them.  The Harvest Lane Stickers in our Embellishment Add-On Kit had a ton of great shapes with several sweet sentiments.  I just had to use the "cute pair" along with the pear sticker on my first card.. Melanie-Card-Cute-PairSometimes mixing and matching patterns can be a bit intimidating. The diagonal stripes on the pear may have been too busy against the floral pattern of the die cut. But by matting the pear on the dark blue cardstock, the patterns do not compete.
Melanie-Card-RememberThe Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go Stamp Set from our Embellishment Add-On Kit has so many cute stamps in it.  I thought that the little elephant stamp & the "remember" card cut from Lima Bean Soup Bite Size Bits paper would go perfectly  together.   The inside sentiment says "I love you so much".  I stamped the elephant on the blue floral patterned paper and then cut it out to adhere to the front of my card. The red heart sticker was a fun way to play up the message inside.

I hope my cards have inspired you to pull out your September Hip Kit and create some sweet cards of your own.  We would love to see your card projects…  so share them with us by posting them on our Facebook page. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure to visit tomorrow to see some more fabulous projects created with our September Kit.   xo – Melanie –
