Here we go!

These card kits are something I purchase EACH season.  Cardmaking is where I started in my papercrafting "world" and creating cards, will always be dear to my heart!

Today, I used my favorite, current cardmaking kit called "Here for You".  This kit features the Some Kinda Wonderful paper pack & includes it's own exclusive stamp set!  

Let's take a look at what I created with this kit...and then make sure to STAY TUNED to see what actually comes in the original kit!   

This stamp set is lovely, and I tried a few different ways to use this stamp set!
Here are my two cards I created...

I had already created this kit of cards, but wanted to use up "scraps"  from the leftovers. :)  I added the following items to create my cards above....
Memo Fundamentals
Sapphire Cardstock

Inks use: Raspberry, Blossom, Willow, Lagoon & Sapphire. 

Let's take a look at the first card....

I stamped the flowers "normal" stamping the base a lighter color, and the "sketch" part of the flower in a darker shade of ink - then I cut out those circle flowers. :) 

My pattern design for this card came from our Originals How-To-Book, pattern "Balance It Out"

My second card, I decided to get out some white embossing powder & the heat tool....take a look at this card. :) 

I used the "map" paper from the Memo Fundamentals, and then used my VersaMark stamp pad to stamp the flowers, added white embossing powder, heated it to melt the powder & then sponged the embossed images with lagoon & blossom ink! :) 

I adore the open leaves on this stamp set...and used those leaves to add a touch of Willow Green to this card.  

The blossom colored banner, is leftover cardstock from the kit.  I was really excited to see how well the SAPPHIRE color worked with the original color scheme of this cardmaking kit. 

NOW...let's take a moment & check out all that's included in the ORIGINAL cardmaking kit!! :)

  1. I love how you used the Memo Fundamental papers with one of your cards - I have such a hard time with those papers! This is one of my favourite stamp sets and the way you used these flowers is terrific :) Love both cards!

  2. Lovely cards! I need to try the technique you used on the second card.

  3. Very pretty and I love the difference a change in paper makes.

  4. Great cards, I love the technique you used for the second card. They are a both fabulous cards.
