Is it just me, or is this summer flying by? The next Studio Calico kit reveal is right around the corner & I think you're going to love what's in store!
This month's kits are called Penny Arcade. I'll share some peeks of the main card kit in a bit, but first off, I've got to show you the Pinball card kit add-on!
This kit has a gorgeous floral stamp set designed by 1Canoe2. The images are buildable & come with solid stamps as well as outline stamps, so there are lots of options when it comes to adding color. For my sneaks, I decided to use acrylic & watercolor paints.
The main card kit comes with the most adorable images. If you're a "fun & cute" fan like I am, you'll really love the included stamps. I used one of the hedgehog stamps on this sneak. Cuteness overload!
This is another card I made using the Penny Arcade main card kit. I wanted to create a dream catcher as a focal point & these little wooden star "sequins" were the perfect embellishment.
Are you ready for another big dose of cuteness? Take a look at this pair (or should I say "pear") from the Churros add-on. This kit comes with stamps & coordinating dies. I used Letterpress inks along with the stamps to create the bold color. These guys were already pretty adorable all on their own, but I decided to add some googly eyes to take the cuteness up another notch.
There are a lot of really amazing dies being released this month. Here's a peek at one of them. I die cut the words using a double sided adhesive sheet & topped them with a few shades of glitter. To create a shadow effect, I cut a second image out of black cardstock & layered it behind vellum.
