Copper Mountain – January kits at Studio Calico

I am the card kit guest designer for January 2014 at Studio Calico, and I went a bit overboard with cardmaking lately! 😉 I made a total of nine cards!

These first few were done with the main card kit only, Copper Mountain card kit{the link only works for subscribers from noon EST on Dec. 27, and for everyone from midnight}

The kit comes with a die to be used with a manual die cutter. Since I don’t own one, I thought of some other way to use the die, and ended up using it as a stencil for my stitching. 🙂 I love this cute whale!



The colors in this month’s kit are right up my alley!

The patterns in the paper pad are very pretty!

This ribbon in the kit is so much fun! It has thin metal wires inside, so you can shape it up as you wish!

I thought the stamps were so versatile!

I was inspired by these cute candy dots to go with an ombre theme for this card.

And now we get to the card add on kit, Spaulding Bowl{the link only works for subscribers from noon EST on Dec. 27, and for everyone from midnight}

I went with an elegant design for this card.. I guess the color scheme was inspired by the Christmas festivities! 🙂

I am in love with the skinny handwritten sentiments in the stamp set!!

As soon as I saw the washi and the gems in the add on kit I knew they’d be a perfect match! 🙂

I also used some of the digital files along with my Silhouette.
When I saw the ocean theme for the stamp set I immediately thought I should use this pretty blue POW glitter paper I had in my stash. 🙂

Yeah, I think this is my favorite card out of the nine I made!

I tried using the stamp to make a card with two whales, but it didn’t quite work out.. it turned out much better to use the digital shape and cut out the two whales! 🙂

Confession: this was my first time ever using a rub on! 😉 (the white anchor)

There is an adorable fox stamp in one of the Project Life add ons and I got to play with this cut file and some watercolors. 🙂

And that’s my ninth card! I have by no means exhausted these two kit, just my time! I haven’t even played yet with two of the stamps – the clouds and “showered with love” sentiment in the main kit and the books stamps in the add on.

I hope you enjoyed these cards; I had lots of fun making them and I hope they show how versatile these kits are! 🙂 In fact, I used the card kits to make a 12″x12″ LO last night – I will be sharing it here early next week. 🙂
If you are considering signing up for a subscription, use this link and we’ll both get a $5 bonus towards add-on purchases. 🙂
