It is that time of month again.......card kit reveal.
This month Beth supplied us with our kit.  It is an absolute adorable kit filled with everything needed to make any type of card from valentine's, birthday to just hello.



I decided this month that I really needed to use stamps that I have either had or just purchased along with my Copic markers.  They certainly do no good sitting in a bin or drawer and are so cute on cards.  That is why I bought them in the first place.

There is something so appealing in this image besides it not being a winter scene that just draws me in.  I thought it would be the perfect card to welcome the newest addition to our clan my great niece.  I put the little crown included in the kit on her head and used my bow easy to tie the double bow.


This little fairy is just so adorable.  I matched the colors to the paper of which I cut out with a new die that I have never used.  I also used flock in white to make it look more like snow under her feet and a little bit on the 'hi' in the corner along with a piece of washi tape along the bottom.


This owl is so cute I wanted a simple design to really showcase him or maybe it is a her.  I used the pink heart from the kit which fit perfectly over the heart on the owl stamped image.  The background stamp was done in Papertrey kraft ink which I then added a few pieces of the patterned paper in strips.  The Happy Valentine day saying was cut using a heart shaped die but I had to add some paper on the back as there was not enough room for this cut out.  I then used another background stamp with Papertrey raspberry fizz and another pink from Heidi Swapp to give the heart some texture.




This next card was stamped using a free stamp from one of my magazine subscriptions over in the UK.  Love all the freebies I get.   The background was done with ink and a stencil.  The image was colored in with my Copics and the double bow was tied with my bow easy.



Last but certainly not least is this little turtle stamp.  I used the speech bubble from the kit and used Heidi Swapp stamps for both the sentiment and the little flags.  The flower in the bottom is from a previous kit but the leaves were from this current one.  I used some twine from Doodlebug under the speech bubble.  Attaching this was a challenge as I was unsure how to keep this under the speech bubble effectively.  I ended up using my good old hot glue gun.


That is it for this month I hope you enjoyed.  Thanks for stopping by.
