It's Reveal time at Studio Calico! I played with the Office Hours card kit and Water Cooler Add-on kit and I think you are all going to just love these kits! Here are a few projects I created with the main card kit Office Hours.
I used the new Mint Hint and Clean Slate inks to stamp my clouds on this card. It's a pretty simple and straight forward design. I used dies to cut my shapes and fussy cut the banner from pattern paper from the kit.
I think it's great how the sentiments fit inside the little banner! I picked out the more coral colored buttons from the kit to match the paper.
On my second card I wanted to use the color scallop paper as my focus. I stamped and cut out the umbrellas using matching inks. The handles are stamped directly on the paper and only the canopy portions of the umbrellas are cut out.
I curved the sentiment (the amazingness of clear stamps) to fit around my umbrellas. I love the little stars included in this kit too. I'm kind of in love with the idea of it raining stars instead of raindrops. :)
On my third card I actually used my sewing machine finally! First thing I have sewed on it since getting it for Christmas. I sewed the pink ribbon across the tag and then lined up buttons on top of it. The umbrella on this card is paper pieced from a paper from the Water Cooler Add-on kit.
I'll be back to share some more projects that use the Water Cooler Add-on kit soon!
