Welcome. I’m so happy to be joining today’s blog hop showcasing projects created with this kit…
|The October Card Kit can be found HERE|
I have several cards to share, so I hope you don’t mind this long post. 🙂 For all three cards, I started with a 3×4 card as my jumping off point.
…I used the hello die-cut that is included in the kit and die-cut it from of THIS toner paper. I added some of THIS gold foil on top and ran it through my Minc Machine, creating a gold foiled embellishment. I backed it with some black fun foam for added dimension and adhered it to the center of one of the 3×4 cards. For the background of the card, I die-cut a sheet of the patterned paper from the kit using THIS die. After adhering everything down to the black card base, I finished the card by adding some of THESE gold sequins and adding some Wink of Stella and Glossy accents to the flowers for some shine.
Here’s a closer look…
For the second card, I chose a 3×4 card with a pick typewriter (how cute is that!?). I heat embossed a sentiment on the typewriter’s paper from the stamp set included in the kit. I cut it out and adhered it to a black panel cut with THIS die. To create the background, I cut several, random sized strips of the patterned paper and adhered them to a piece of cardstock at an angle. I die-cut the entire piece using THIS die.
I bent the corner of the typewriter paper, applied glossy accents to the typewriter keys, and added an epoxy heart for a few finishing touches…

For my final card (are ya still with me?) …
I chose a butterfly die-cut piece to start with and used the opening to let the gold ink shine through. The gold pigment ink included in the kit is beautiful. I smeared some on a piece of cardstock and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I also used the ink around the edges of the sentiment strip, Speaking of the sentiment, I stamped it with THIS ink and then clear heat embossed it. I really like how this makes sentiments and images pop.

To finish the card, I die-cut some striped patterned paper with THIS die and added some gold splatter. I created the gold splatter by dabbing the gold ink on my craft sheet and adding a small amount of water. I picked it up with my paintbrush and flicked it on.
