Crafty Peeps February Card Kit

**Be sure to check out my stamps for sale tab above or click here!  There are lots of new sets up for sale!**

Welcome to my Crafty Peeps Card Kit Club post! This month the kit came from Joan and she filled it full of wonderful supplies!

I made three cards using the contents with the kit!

Gold Heart Skips a Beat

First up is my favorite of the three.  I really like the gold trend right now and throw in some stripes and I'm really happy, lol!  Joan had some wonderful striped washi tape paper and that is what I used for the striped part of this card! Isn't it lovely?  

Gold Heart Skips a Beat Closeup

She also included some wood hearts.  I took one and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  Talk about packing a punch! I added in some flat gold sequins to finish the card off.

This card was based on Retro Sketches' Sketch #101.  

Love You

Next up is this "Love You" card.  I really liked this patterned paper that Joan sent and it paired up nicely with the blueish gray card base that she also included.  I die cut the "Love" with PTI Headline Alphabet letter dies, tilting the "V" for an artistic look.  I stamped the heart (from PTI Heart Prints)  in between the letters and at the bottom of the card with PTI Autumn Rose ink.  The "you" is from Simon Says Stamp.

I'm entering this into the PTI challenge for today to use a large word as a focal point.

Two Hearts

My last card uses three of the various washi tapes Joan included.  What a fun option!  After using my Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Rectangles to make the stitching around the card base, I added the washi tape.  I stacked two more of the wood/chipboard hearts.  I colored the hollowed center one black with my ink pad and then used Heart Prints (PTI) to stamp the pattern onto the other heart.  The sentiment is from PTI's Love & Marriage set.

I'm also linking these cards up to the Simon Says Stamp Have a Heart Challenge!

Thanks Joan for sending such a fun set!  I enjoyed working with this kit!  If you'd like to see what Leigh did with this kit, visit her blog here!
