Hi, one thing I love to do when I want to create but I’m not feeling particularly creatively inspired is to use a card kit. The brand new, limited edition Color Me Happy Project kit appealed to me as it was designed for use with the new Stampin’ Blends. You all know how much I love to colour! The style of the stamp set offers a range of colouring options from simple colouring to more detailed blending. If you are new to colouring, this is a great kit/stamp set with which to start. Plus the images are just too cute – have you seen those birds?! The Project Kit comes as a bundle with either wood-mount or clear-mount stamps so you can save 10%! If you want to make more than the 16 cards included, you can purchase the Project Kit on its own. You will need a few extra supplies to complete the kit as per the instructions. Don’t feel that you have to make it exactly as per the instructions if you don’t want – play and make it your own if you wish! That’s the beauty of kits!
What you might need:
* Memento Inkpad – Tuxedo Black
* Stampin’ Blends – Light Night of Navy, Dark Night of Navy, Light Pink Pirouette, Dark Pink Pirouette, Light Pool Party, Dark Pool Party, Light Pumpkin Pie, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Colour Lifter
* Adhesives – Fine Tip Glue Pen, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail or Fast Fuse
* Paper Snips
Here’s the first card from the kit:
Isn’t it pretty?!
It can be a little tricky to adhere the gold trim perfectly. One tip is to tack the edge of the white cardstock in place to use it as a guide. I didn’t do this and maybe I should have! Instead, I positioned the white cardstock in place and used a pencil to make some marks. In one case, it went horribly wrong, I was miles away from where I needed to be. Don’t worry if this happens to you! There is always a solution! All I did was place the stamped panel right along the gold trim and then cut off the extra cardstock. It is a little bit smaller but the recipient won’t know!
Check out my Facebook page today to see a video by Stampin’ Up! for more hints and tips when putting this kit together.
So, if you are new to card making, or you just want something you can whip up in a hurry, this project kit might be exactly what you need.
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount or wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to both.
