Just a note.

Hel­lo again! Chris­tine from Cocoa Daisy here to share a cou­ple fun cards I made using this mon­th’s kit “Siren’s Call”.

Every month before I put my kit away to start work­ing with the next one I like to make a cou­ple cards with the left­over bits on my desk. This mon­th’s kit had the per­fect bright, pri­ma­ry col­ors to cre­ate a cou­ple cheery cards.

For this first card I punched 1″ cir­cles from the Cos­mo Crick­et paper and then ran them through my sewing machine, let­ting the machine run a few stitch­es in between each cir­cle to cre­ate a ban­ner like affect. I laid them out on the card in ran­dom order, plac­ing foam adhe­sive under some to add a lit­tle dimen­sion. I fin­ished off the card with a tag and this cute paper clip and ban­ner from K&Co.



For this card I used one of the stamps that came in the August exclu­sive ban­ner stamp set. I stamped it in blue ink then used some clear emboss­ing pow­der to give it some tex­ture. I used the Crafter’s Work­shop sten­cil with some lime green Maya Mist to cre­ate a bright back­ground, then I lay­ered the embossed ban­ner pieces over top with a few but­tons and a stamped birth­day sen­ti­ment.  A bor­der punch along the bot­tom com­pletes the card. Easy peasy :)


Hope you have been inspired to cre­ate a few quick cards with your left­overs!

Thank you Lisa for invit­ing me to post on your blog! It’s been fun!
