Far Far Away {Studio Calico January Kit Reveal}

Hello, hello! Have you already seen the new Studio Calico "Far Far Away" kits? They've gone live for ordering yesterday and I think most items are still in stock if you want to pick something up. Today, I'm going to quickly share my Creative Team cards for the gallery.

First up, I have two main card kit only cards for you. One featuring the large pineapple stamp, which I heat embossed and watercolored. Pineapples are one of the micro trends I noticed since summer and I have some ideas to stamp on fabric with this.

The second card with the main only was so quick and fun to make. It features two favorites from the kit: a veneer butterfly (painted with nail varnish!) and the Neocolor crayon (along with two other colors from my stash).

Beside the main kit, I also got two add-on stamps. Both very different in style both awesome in their own right. One is the Balloon stamp set designed by Tina Aszmus - completely adorable, don't you think? There are also heart shaped balloons and Valentine's sentiments in there. So, if you celebrate this holiday you might want to take a look at it (the kits and add-ons I used are all linked under the respective card).

The second add-on I got, was the Diamond stamp set which has a variety of diamond shapes and "fillings" as well as mix and match sentiments to go along with them. My idea for the card below was to create kind of a Christmas thank you card and you can make them it lots of different colors to suit your recipients taste.

One last tip: Today is also last call (=shop sale) time! I took a peek at the offers and there are lots of fun stamp sets from previous kits in the sale section, e.g. from popular artist like Ashley Goldberg and Lindsay Letters.  In addition you can enjoy 25 % off the stamps (excluding Heidi Swapp sets) in the regular stamp section with the code STAMPSALE25 (expires 12/31/2014 at 11:59pm EST).
