Studio Calico Park Ave. Kit Reveal

Hey there and happy Thanksgiving to my US readers :) Regulars around here already know that today is reveal day at Studio Calico. By now subscribers can already go shopping and for everyone else it's only a few more hours until the Park Ave. kits go on sale.

November has been busy and I didn't get to play as long and as much as I wanted with these kits. I mostly dug into the main kit which is nice if you want to get a feeling for the potential of the main kit alone I think. This is what you'll be getting:

And let me tell you, I'm a little jelly for you'll be getting that cute masking tape (my kit was already on it's way when the tape hit the warehouse). Just about the first card I made with the kits was this following one.

I heat embossed the house stamp fillers in white on watercolor paper, then started to color the houses and sky with Neocolor watercolors. For a little more depth, I also used the Color Theory inks with a sponge on the dark blue night sky. Lastly, I couldnt help myself and put on some sprinkles in Mister Huey Calico Shine for the finishing touch to mimic stars.

The adorable veneer taxi in the main kit deserved special attention. I used a light grey marker to highlight some features on it and a 0.1 Micron pen to trace the Taxi sign. The headlights were glittered and I also cut some of the cityscape paper to fit the rear window.

That card came together by chance. I'm behind on the Christmas cards (again!) and also wanted to find a way to use the house filler stamps in a different way. Here I stamped and heat embossed a pattern on a handcut Christmas tree. Patterned papers are all from Dots & Stripes paper pad.

That rose paper in the main kit is just so pretty, you hardly need a thing to add for a sweet card/love note. I heat embossed the hello stamp in gold on a die-cut tag (love the craft dies, so versatile!) and decorated with the included enamel dots from the kit.

For this last card today, I punched a heart from kraft paper as my sentiment mat. I masked part of the "Handmade with Love" stamp and added "sent" with the alpha letters from the main card kit.

Well, and that's all I got for today! I have another card finished and a second almost (sneak for that last one is already on Instagram). So you'll probably see some more ideas for this kit soon-ish :) Thanks for visiting!
