Ahoy. I am in quite the nautical mood today as I have had such fun making cards with our latest 4 of a Kind kit...this time hosted by Renee of It's a Patchwork Life. You should have seen the gigantic, enormous, packed to the brim package we each received this month. Here's a snapshot of our package:
As you can see, I was not exaggerating! I made six cards with my kit and when I packed away the left-overs, my package was still full enough to make at least another six or so. Here is what I made:
I loved the anchor-embossed card stock Renee sent us in our kit. I used some of the patterned paper and Mat Stack #3 from PTI to highlight the ships wheel from our kit. Those brass brads were fun to use too.
How quick and easy this card was to make. I didn't even have to stamp the whale...it was a sheet of patterned paper I die cut with the Lil' Inker notebook die. More seagulls and that polka dot washi tape...also included in our kit.
I cheated a bit on this card. Renee challenged us to tie this knot ourselves, even giving us enough rope to do it. Did I? Nope. I just cut off the belly band Renee put around our package this month. It was just too good not to use.
Every single pieces of this card came from our kit...love the anchor patterned paper and the Lil Inker Fanfare die again.
I really love the navy and white on this one...the white strip is actually another piece of washi tape from our package and the background patterned paper was already rounded. This last card really did practically make itself.
Do you see why I had so much fun with this kit? I can only imagine how great the cards are going to be from the other three members of our group. For the complete kit ingredient list, make sure to check out Renee's blogpost. We'll be back in January with something fun from Joyce!
