SJ Card Kit Club

Happy Tuesday!! Today I am sharing the cards I created with the SJ Card Kit Club. It was Kathleen's turn and she sent us a HUGE kit of Christmas themed supplies. I was the weak link to this kit as I only created five cards. It was a combination of being too tired after a long day at work and not having any mojo. Hate that!!

On my first card, I created a little hill for the bear to stand on. The bear was part of the kit, as was the patterned paper. I enhanced the die cut with a little black enamel to make the eyes and the nose. The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink's "Cup of Cheer" stamp set.

My second card is the one I like the least. I had to put the trim at the top as I made a mistake adhering the paper. I also used Festive Berry Distress Ink on the embossed sentiment and don't love the look.

There is a serious mistake on this card. The left bird was not supposed to have a black eye!! I first used a black liquid enamel to attempt to make the eyes but did not like it. I was able to glue the other eyes on with no issue but the black seeped out a bit. I was so mad as this was the last thing I did for this card!! The sentiment and the stamped notes are from Paperie Ink's "Christmas Carolers" stamp set.

Really simple card. I die cut the embossed background that was in the kit and adhered it to a white card base. I then layered a white hill and used the die cuts that were in the kit. I used liquid black embossing enamel for the snowman's eyes and Nuvo Red Berry for the buttons.

This card was super simple to created. I utilized patterned paper that was included in the kit on the background, as well as the die cut snowman, present and hat. I enhanced the snowman by using liquid black enamel for the snowman's eyes and mouth, Diamond Stickles for the dots on the present and blue gems for buttons.

I thank you for stopping by. Please visit the SJ Card Kit Club blog to view the other participants creations.

You ONLY made five cards?! I think that's a huge accomplishment, Nora, and they are all fantastic designs!! I can feel your pain about the 'black eye,' but I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it. And, anyway, I'm pretty sure that birds do get black eyes IRL! I mean, think about it. Flying around like they do in amongst the tree branches? And what about if they run into a flying grasshopper and they open their mouths to eat the lovely morsel, but they miss and it flips up and pops them in the eye? It can happen. So it's all good! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

Five cards....Five. I posted ONE today.... You've rocked the kit girl, and made five really fun cards! I like Darnell's explanation for the black eye. It works for me! LOVE those little snowmen and that polar bear is fantastic! Very festive and very sweet cards. Love them! Bev
