Hi there, it's Spring Break for my girls. 11 days of no school, woohoo! I love this time of year...track and softball are starting up, the weather is getting warmer, it's getting to be gardening time, Charlie and I can take our walks down the road. I just love it.
Today I have a stash of cards I created with the March Gossamer Blue Kits. This month's kits were full of bright colors but there were also lots of more subdued colors like in the photo below. I picked the supplies below + a stack of Medium Manila Parcel Tags, some cardstock and twine from my stash.
Here's what I created, a fun set of 6 cards. Cards like these are a great way to use up a lot of patterned paper. I created the backgrounds with large pieces of cardstock and then used strips of cardstock for accents.
I varied the card designs slightly but they all have one thing in common....sentiments stamped on the tags + clusters of embellishments layered onto the tags.
Large Kraft Sack or Large Glassine Sack and mailing them in a bubble mailer.
March Color Kit. Even if your projects don't have black on them, a few splatters here and there are fun. You can see how I added tiny splatters to my Friendship Jar cards in this post.
GB March Bits & Pieces Kit then you're probably loving the rainbow stripe Washi tape. Don't be afraid to add some to your projects with more subtle colors. I think it adds a nice twist.
Hope you enjoyed my cards today. Be sure to check the Gossamer Blue blog throughout the month. There are lots of inspiring projects added throughout the month that use the current month's kits.
Alrighty, I'm off to help the girls with some stacks of laundry......pack up some orders to take to the post office....then this afternoon I'm watching The Lucky One and breaking out more of my April Gossamer Blue kit items. April is going to be a fabulous month with Gossamer Blue...some of my favorite new products are in each and every kit. I hope you'll join us. :)
