Hey there, Hip Kit friends!! Lea here tonight to share a couple more cards using the February 2015 kits! One of my favorite type of cards are those that can be used for everyday encouragement. My hope is that one day I will have a child that I can tuck cards into a backpack, lunchbox or put on their pillow… letting them know that I am thinking of them when they have a big test or reminding them of how wonderful they are when they might be struggling. Those are the type of cards that I created today!
For my first card I got a little artsy, creating a watercolor background with mists & painting the chipboard sentiment with a paint dauber. This sentiment could be used for SO many purposes…a birthday, a big test or big game… anything that might be important for the day!
To create the watercolor background I used the mists included in the February Color Kit, and just swirled them around on a wet block of watercolor paper until it looked how I wanted it. I LOVE the bold colors, and the beautiful purple that was created by mixing the two mists. After drying, I spritzed it with a little bit of gold mist from my stash. While it finished drying, I painted the chipboard sentiment with the shell pink paint dauber also included in the color kit, & let it dry. Once everything was ready, I adhered the watercolor block to an A2 card. I added a tangle of gold thread to the middle, then adhered the chipboard sentiment over top of it. I added a couple gold rub-ons from the February Main Kit, and then accented it with a little sparkler from my stash as well!
I started this card by adding a block of that fabulous script paper to an A2 card base. After that, I just layered diecut goodies, wood veneer & enamel dots to portray my sweet message!! It’s really as simple as that. The card might seem more complicated, but it really isn’t! Just use a combination of flat & foam adhesive to give it some dimension!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards tonight!! Be sure to share the cards you’ve created using the February Kits in our Member Forum & Gallery…I would love to see them!! Have an awesome Wednesday night!
