We love when guest designers get to play along with our kits each month and this month is no different. Tanya Purchase joined us and really killed the July Card kit – does she ever know how to make the most of supplies.
A few words from Tanya:
First up a tag Tanya created using some stamps from her stash and the tag and patterned paper from the kit.
This card and matching envelope set are so cute in person – love the embossed texture on them. The envelope says “say what” on the outside to match the card front – cute!
Another card and matching envelope – I really need to remember to do this – looks awesome as a set. The little hearts on the card punched with the heart punch in the kit are popped off for added dimension and Tanya added some washi tape from her stash to finish it off.
Super cute card with interesting angles also see the envelope – it’s charcoal! Did you know that The Paperie sells coloured envelopes – I don’t know about you but getting ‘real’ mail is so rare these days that I just love the thought of receiving something in a coloured envelope. One tip from Tanya is that if you find you have embellishments or letters (such as Hello) that you want to ensure stay on cover them with a little matte medium.
The simplicity in this card is appealing. Tanya punched hearts along the bottom and then used patterned paper on the inside of the card to peek through. Also another tip is if you run out of letters – improvise. Tanya made the ‘L’ from a ‘T’. To tie in the colour of the sentiment, she punched a few aqua hearts to add to the patterned paper – they look like they are meant to be there!
On this card Tanya used Matte Medium as a resist with the stencil that came with the stamp set. I also spy some Wink of Stella in clear, pink and dark pink on those butterfly wood veneer.
This may be my favourite – I love circles and the sentiment peeking out of the punched circle is an idea I’ll be stealing for sure.
Here are a bunch more of Tanya’s cards – I told you she killed this kit!
Would you believe that on this one the triangles are from the cover of the paper pad!
I love that card kits can be used in their entirety on their own or with supplies from your own stash as Tanya did here with her own stamps and Copic Markers. These Julie Nutting Doll stamps are ever so popular lately and we have ordered a bunch more, including a BOY stamp!
Okay, so who else needs that embossing folder? Because we’re going to have to order them back in after seeing this fabulous clean and simple card. Put in your requests!
For the card above Tanya used watercolor paper and the stencil in the kit with light molding paste and her Silks paints in Key Lime, Teal Zircon and Bolivian Blue – the shimmer is amazing.
For this card Tanya used some watercolor paper and her yellow rose & pink azalea Silks with light molding paste and added some wood veneer and pink Wink of Stella.
Tanya also made two canvases with kit contents aren’t they cute?
And last but not least Tanya went way outside the box with the card kit and created this mobile with the patterned papers. There are various size circles stitched together and paper flowers at the top. Can’t you just picture this blowing in the breeze in a corner of your studio?
Thanks so much for playing along Tanya and we are super impressed by all of the projects you managed to get from one kit! Meghan will be back next week with her take on the kit.
If you don’t already get our card kits drop in and see them; or we can mail one to you as well – they are $24.99 and always a great value with papers and products that are exclusive to the kits. (shipping is extra).
