A Year of Kindness

November 30, 2011

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I hope that your week has been going well so far.  It is the last day of the month, and I realized that I still had one post left to do for the November Key Ingredients kit!  This month has completely gotten away from me, if that isn't completely evident in the lack of blog posts all month long!

So, I whipped up this CAS card with a little bit of vintage flair for this Key Ingredients inspiration post.  I just love the papers in this month's kit....and they were perfect for this Christmas thank you note!  I created this for some challenges as well, and those will be linked at the bottom of the post!  Here is what I created:
"Thank You for a Year of Kindness" supplies:
Cardstock/Paper/Ribbon/Diecut: Taylored Expressions November Key Ingredients kit
Jewels: Taylored Expressions August Key Ingredients kit
Stamps: Taylored Expressions (Peaceful Poinsettia set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Mixed Media: leather)
Twine: May Arts

Instructions:  Make card from cream cardstock.  Cut a 4" block of brown paper, and adhere the diecut button card to the front of it.  Stamp the sentiment to the bottom of the diecut, then wrap ribbon around the middle of it.  Add a button to the middle of the bow using twine.  Adhere the entire piece to the front using foam adhesive.  Stamp the two flowers to red starburst paper and cut out.  Give them some dimension, then layer together.  Add yellow jewels to the middle, then adhere the flower to the front.  Add three jewels to the top of the diecut card to finish.

As I have said before, the Key Ingredients kits are tailored towards card makers...and you can make dozens of cards with just this one kit!  Here is a link to the subscription page if you would like to get started!!  Every month Inspiration Sheets are provided for the kit, which is complete with supply lists and instructions...so you can recreate the very same cards if you like!!  This kit has something for everyone...beginners, all the way up to those who have been making cards for years.

That is all I have for you for now!  Please check back tonight, as I will have my first post up for the December/January WPlus9 release.  This new release is one of my faves yet....just wait because you are going to love it!! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
