It's a Block Party!

Happy New Year, everyone!! Hope you are off to a great start :) I just wanted to quickly pop in and share some of my first Design Team cards for Studio Calico with their Block Party Kits. For this month I got the card kit (of course) and I also couldn't resist the Pioneer Drive and Woodbrooke Road Add-ons.

The first one was made with just the Card Kit, a few dies and Mister Huey sprinkles.

Loved how this one came together through a bit of an accident. I cut a square piece of the yellow diagonal stripe off and glued it down to my card base, then felt the proportion is way off. With another, smaller piece of the same pattern, I could form a big chevron for my background and saved the card from the junk drawer :)

My last card for todays post is more of a general purpose, all occasion one since I intentionally left the sentiment off. I'm don't usually use dark card bases but much rather go for cream, white or kraft. It's amazing to see though how much the colors pop against the dark grey background. For me, that's the beauty of the card kit - you get some supplies that you maybe wouldn't buy yourself but end up loving.

You can see detail shots of the cards above (and all of my other cards for this month, too, if you want) in my Studio Calico gallery. I have four more cards to show later this week, including my personal favorite. See you then!
