Clique Kits October Blog Share

Hi everyone!

If you just arriving at my blog, for whatever reason, I'd like to invite you to head over to the Clique Kit blogs because you're seeing a post that's part of a monthly tradition - Pep Rally! Every month, design team members and CK subscribers gather together to share projects they have made using the kit the previous months kit. We are transitioning to sharing the November kit BUT... we want to celebrate all that the October kit. It really is a gorgeous kit. 

Now let's get with the hop, here. You should have arrived from Magali but, I've posted the line up below so you can be sure to visit all the beautiful inspiration:

I so loved this kit and loved making lots of cards. Today I'm sharing two more that I created with it. 

I loved the alpha from Pinkfresh Studio and the paint speckles that were on it. So, I wanted to create a card that emulated that same style and design. Also, the stickers are so cute and fun! Sometimes I like to challenge myself and create projects a certain way. For this one, it was just paint and stickers. :)

The next card I wanted to utilize the pretty shapes on one of the patterned papers. When it comes to cards and 12x12 sheets of paper, I do a lot of fussy cutting. I have to look at those large papers from a different perspective... a smaller scale perspective... so, a lot of times I'm looking at how I might be able to cut it up and relate to my cards. 

Here is the final card with a close up...

You can see I added some more paint drips but, had a lot of fun cutting out that flower and butterfly!

Thanks so much for swinging by my blog! I hope you enjoy the hop today.

Eat Cake | Clique Kits

Hello friends,

I wanted to share with you a card I created using the October Sapphire kit from Clique Kits. While Pinkfresh Studio is highlighted in this kit, there is also some Simple Stories and I used some to create this card.

Perfect for a birthday, right???

The alpha and puffy stickers are from Fancy Pants and are also included in the kit.

I always like to try to add some dimension to my cards and the cupcake was perfect to do just that.

Thanks for swinging by today! Now, go make some cards!
