This week is all about the card chicks. I think that's what I'm going to plan for the 3rd Tuesday of every month. We post our cards from the kit to the thread on Splitcoast Stampers around the 21st of each month.

Kits are mailed out to reach us around the 3rd of the month. That gives us over two full weeks to play with the contents. Of course, I'm a 'last minute' kind of gal so I was working on these yesterday and this morning.

This is the last envelope we will receive from Paula. She's having to take some personal time so has dropped from the group for now. I hope she's able to return in the future.

I never thought to take a picture of the kit. I'll try to remember to do that in the future. But here's what her note in the packet had to say:

The image is from a stamp set from Sparkle and Sprinkle. They are kind of local to me here in Florida and used to have a brick and mortar store, but now they only do expos. The ribbon is from SU Daffodil Delight. Paper is from a value pad from Michaels. The butterflies and thank you die cuts I have and hardly ever use. The bling is from my stash.

Tulips are stamped on Neena Cardstock with Ranger Archival so you should be able to use just about any color medium on them. I gave you 2, so fussy cut them, pop them up or just make 2 cards!

The first 2 cards incorporate the tulip images. I used Stampin' Blends - one in the Daffodil Delight and the other in Pink Pirouette. Leaves are done in Old Olive.

This first one is a A5 card. I incorporated the bling, the ribbon and one of the papers she sent. The ovals were cut from the SU Nesting Ovals. Now that I've figured out how they mat, I'm loving working with them!

This one is an A4. I used a Strawberry Slush card base and for the mat altered with Pink Pirouette. The sentiment is from Petal Palette

Then I made use of the other piece of DSP and created two additional A4 cards. This first one uses a Dapper Denim card base and Pistachio Pudding mats. I chose SU's Beautiful Peacock. The feathers are a second generation stamp. Even though these are clear stamps, they are still hare to position the body perfectly within the opening in the feathers - at least for me.

For the second card, I flipped the base colors around. Dapper Denim on a Pistashio Pudding base.

That's our cards for this month. I am excited to see what our April hostess has in store!


  1. Wow, what a wonderful set of cards, all just gorgeous x

    1. Thank you, Cara. I think the tulip ones are my favorite. I've been seeing a lot of black matted cards lately and really like the effect. Hugs!

  2. Great job with this kit! Love the pink tulips!

  3. Great cards! I love both of them--great color choices!
