It’s Sara again, this time with the projects I made with the Kid’s Christmas Card Kit – it’s not just for the kiddies!
First, here’s the card that inspired Molly, based on a card form Jennifer McGuire that inspired me in the first place!
When you open it up, the floating tree element looks great!
I loved the idea so much that I made another one, this time using the ribbon trim in the kit:
My next card is inspired my Molly’s snowsuited penguin, which I thought was an awesome idea:
I punched up the card base a little with a Dylusions snowflake stencil and some Studio Calico Shine mist:
Because the stamp set has a great penguin and sentiment that work together for homemade baked goodies, I wanted to make a card that you could attach to some cookies or Christmas bread that you gift for the season:
This one has the patterned paper base (since we used all the plain cardstock and besides, it’s fun inside!) and I wanted to show you how I write on the inside of patterned cards:
Easy! Plus, see those green sentiments? Those are made by brushing the Wink of Stella marker over the stamp – sparkly sentiments!
This next card also uses a patterend paper base, but on the outside. It also has a lot of paper piecing since I took elements from both penguins in the stamp set and combined them.
My final card is a true window card, as in, it’s a window!
The inside is full of Martha Stewart punched snowflakes and a sentiment:
Since I was on a paper piecing kick, I decided to have some fun with my Prima Aidan stamp and the coordinating watercolour tags. I’ve been using these tags a lot instead of birthday cards lately – they attach to gift bags and can be then used as a bookmark! The first tag is a Christmas one:
Yes, I love paper piecing – I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but look at the awesome results! And you can use the papers and sentiments in this Christmas kit for an any-time-of-year boy tag too:
One of the first things I thought of when I saw this kit was using it as a fun explosion box for the holidays:
My kids love to look through my albums but they always head for the minis since they’re easier to hold. What’s easier and more fun than a little box that explodes when you open it – especially one with a 3D penguin inside?
After creating and seeing the mess scattered around, I decided to make uses of the random strips of paper on my table and spiraled them up inside a clear plastic ornament:
Fun, easy, and colourful – especially with that tiny penguin make from Shrink Plastic! That was so much fun to make that I quickly made up an ornament as my last project from the kit:
The awesome part of this was the sparkle – those Wink of Stellas work on everything!
Can you even believe all the things we made? And I can tell you that there are still a ton of supplies left over, we simply ran out of time to make more!
