WOYWW - Creative Card Chicks

I won't be linking up to WOYWW until next Wednesday, but this was the best day to post the monthly Card Chicks cards. I'm trying to get back on track with the various challenges and I was determined to post to Card Chicks on time this month. 

This is the kit Miami Kel sent us to work with. 

I added Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Peek A Boo Peach and Crumb Cake

I had this gift wrap embellishment kit in the scrap rack - perfect pairing for this kit. I only used the small chimpanzee on one of the cards.

I used the birthday sentiment from the kit for this card. To color the image, I put a drop of various SU reinker colors in my paint pallet and used a water brush to add pigment. The color isn't real good in the picture for some reason.

Her hat was watered down Crumb Cake with a Peek A Boo Peach band. Her hair is Daffodil Delight. I colored her blouse in the Peek A Boo Peach. I used a stronger pigment for the pockets then watered it down a bit more for a lighter shirt. I used the same technique on her khaki's using Chocolate Cake and the Basic Black for the boots and binoculars.

The Always Artichoke strip is embossed with the Petal Pair embossing folder from Stampin' Up!
The entire card is paid out on a Chocolate Chip base.

For this card, I embossed a mat using Layered Leaves embossing folder on Crumb Cake. I added the bakers twine and the enamel dots, Kelli had included in the kit.

The cool thing about being a part of this group is that each month one of us sends a kit to everyone.. and no two people will do the same thing with the items. We often look at someone else's card and say 'why didn't I think to do that?!' LOL 

I hope to go back and work up the other kits. I'll show them off as I do. 

That's on my desk, what's on yours this week?


  1. You did a great job with your kit Kelly. It is always fun each month to see all the different cards that get made from the same kit.

  2. Kelly, I like what you did with your kits! Love artichoke and chocolate chip together. Very nice!
