February Card Kitchen

On the eve of a brand-new Card Kitchen kit reveal, I'm reminded I haven't yet shared my current kit creations. Here we go!

F is For Family

The "F is for Family" strip is cut from a larger alphabet/text paper design. I enjoyed using these strips as sentiment so much that I added them on all of my samples this month. (You'll see.) 

The kit includes a darling little vintage flash card, and I got lucky with the one in my kit. The 1/5 fraction flash card is perfect for my little family of five! 

Imagine | Dream | Journey

This one started out as a sketch challenge attempt, but I veered off quite a bit when my circle windows took up more space than I had anticipated. Still, I love how this one turned out!

J is for Journey

The journey sentiment seemed perfect for the large postcard shipping tag and the vintage stamps (you  know, the kind of stamps you lick and stick).

Love You Always

Here, I've put three of the alphabet strips together for yet another option. The bright colors in this kit were so fun to work with, and I loved the generous assortment of those woodgrain epoxy buttons.

S is for Summer

The pinwheel is a GREAT way to show off both sides of a double-sided paper. There are some pinwheel dies on the market, or you can easily make one with your basic tools. Start by by trimming a square. Then, from each corner, cut along the diagonal, stopping about halfway before you reach the center. Fold down at each corner and secure in the center.

V is for Victory

Loved putting the red, white, and blue patterns together for a 4th of July/Americana look! 

W is for Wonder

More colorful patterns, more woodgrain buttons ...

Xtra Kindness

I created some dimension by topping a die-cut flower with a rolled flower. The rolled flower is another of those things that you can do with a die OR the old-fashioned way ... with scissors. Lots of video tutorials on this if you're interested!

The March kit reveal is tomorrow! Check the Card Kitchen blog and/or Card Kitchen on Facebook.

Have a good one!

Wow, what a bevy of beautiful cards you have created! Love the word strip papers (I'm always looking for something to cut out of dp too). Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, Kathy
