November 2012 Hip Kit… Two sweet cards by Kimberly Hutchison…

Happy New Years Eve!

New Years Eve here… is going to consist of a quiet evening.  Madeleine and Megan are going to scrapbook with me, and Bob is going to watch some football games he recorded.  Mackenzie is with her friend, Jane and her family at a snowy cabin in eastern Washington.  All is good here at the Hutchison house – and I hope all is good with you and your families.

But, before the festivities start I wanted to share a couple more cards that I created with our November 2012 Hip Kit.  I am sure that many of you have sent out all of your cards for this year, but you can used the card ideas to create embellishment clusters on your holiday scrapbook layouts… or you can send out a wintery New Years card.

IMG_1572 How cute is this little wintery snowman card?!  I cut out a snowflake with my new Christmas gift…  (a Silhouette Cameo) which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!  I misted it with the silver Mister Huey Mist and added some splatters to the background of my card (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit).  I think it gives it a real wintery feel.  The sentiment is a little flag banner cut from the Sleigh Ride Tag Cuts paper.  I think the ribbon, masking tape sticker and button are the perfect accents to finish my card.

IMG_1576I love the striped October Afternoon paper that I used for the background of my card.  It was the perfect canvas for the music print die cut and other elements that I used.  Subtle but not plain.

The candy cane stripe paper from Lilybee Design was one of my favorite papers in our November Hip Kit.  Nothing says Christmas like a candy cane stripe!  :)  The Sleigh Ride Tag Cuts paper has so many wonderful tags, tabs and pennant banners that  are perfect for card making.  I combined the “Merry & Bright” tag along with a masking tape sticker, a couple of Ephemera die cuts, a button and an Enamel Dot (from our Embellishment Add-On Kit) to create this festive card.
IMG_1584The addition of machine stitching with silver thread around the perimeter of my card gives it s nice finished look.  I also tied a bit of silver thread through the little button.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  I hope you are inspired to continue your holiday crafting by scrapping some of your holiday photos and creating a belated Christmas card or sending a couple of New Years cards.  Stop by again tomorrow…  because I will have a few more November Hip Kit projects to share with you. 

Wishing you all a very happy & safe New Year!!!  xo – Kimberly –
