When You Dance
The fab sentiment is from one of the Bite-Size Bits (cut-apart journaling cards). I trimmed it down and turned it into a grouping of flags. Each one is curled slightly to give it a blowing in the wind look. There were decorative brackets above and below this sentiment, which were too good to waste, so I incorporated one into this next card. It made a lovely anchor for the strip of bicycles.
Aren't those mini clothespins adorable? And the wooden ruler/yardstick background? And the bicycles? Ah, so much to love about the Irish Farm House Soup line!
Sending A Line
An awesome postal themed stamp set was included in the May kit. I used the "sending a line" sentiment here.
A whole bunch of Irish Farm House Soup Pea Pods and stickers make up this little collage.
I mentioned yesterday that the May kit is sold out. I'm sure you can see why -- what a great collection of products!
Wow, the end of May sure has crept up on me. Some emails were going around about a picnic during a Memorial Day weekend baseball tournament, and my first reaction was, "why are we planning Memorial Day already?" I'll get my head screwed on right someday - I hope!
This has got to be the busiest Spring on record for the Sheffer family! I personally feel like I've been at a dessert buffet for the past three weeks: everything has been too good to pass up, and I'm left feeling satisfied, but also uncomfortably full. So that's my excuse for not posting my May Card Kitchen cards earlier :) Actually, Kimber has started peeks of the JUNE kit already on The Card Kitchen blog and on Facebook, so be sure to check those out. The June kit is available June 1! But first, some of my May kit creations:
Bicycle Thinking of You
The May Card Kitchen kit was filled with assorted die-cuts (Jillibean Soup's Irish Farm House Soup Pea Pods). I used a bunch of them on this first card -- the bicycle is my favorite!!
Flower Thinking of You
For this one, I took a red doily Pea Pod and a bunch of Irish Farm House Soup label stickers and made a flower. I love the wood flag sentiments, and especially that four came in this kit!
My favorite card this month ... I've been increasingly drawn to cleaner, simpler designs lately.
There were four of these sweet definition elements in the May kit -- love them!
The May kit has sold out, but for general Card Kitchen information, click HERE. Also, check out The Card Kitchen blog and/or The Card Kitchen on Facebook.
I'll share another four May cards another day this week. Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies: The Card Kitchen May kit, doily, white cloud die-cut
Happy Thursday, friends. I have another card to share today using Reverse Confetti's fabulous Peacock Pretties set.
I had some fun playing with patterns on my backgrounds. For the sentiment panel, I repeatedly stamped the "LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE" sentiment in an irregular, wavy fashion, then topped it with a fussy-cut, multi-colored feather. On the olive card base, I created another pattern using watermark ink and another Peacock Pretties stamp. Rounded corners, a small strip of patterned paper, and a button with twine finish off yet another CAS card.
Each Monday we’ll be posting on the RC BLOG:
1. a few of these projects which will be that week’s ‘FETTI FINDS
2. a new link list for that week (posts made Sunday through Saturday)
From these ‘FETTI FINDS, we’ll choose a ‘FETTI FAVE to join the CONFETTI CREW as a guest during our next release for sneak peeks and the release hop.
Just a few rules…
1. Anything goes, as long as Reverse Confetti stamps are the main focal point of the project
2. No limit to the number of projects linked, but they must be posted to your blog or gallery that same week (no linking older projects)
It’s time to CELEBRATE THE CREATIVE SIDE OF YOU!

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and since I'm the second stop on the hop, you should have made it here from there! If not, go back one stop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti’s first 4 brand new stamp sets!
I've been showing off my CAS side with most of my peeks; today I'm back in my wheelhouse, with pretty papers and layers and distressing and fun little extras. I'm featuring a sentiment combo from the I LIKE YOU set. At the top is "I like you" and "'n," and along the bottom is "sunny days," each stamped in a bright turquoise ink. The yellow polka-dot borders were done with an accent image in the set.
I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today. Be sure and hop with us on the 8th of ever month for more REVERSE CONFETTI inspiration! Now it’s time to hop on over to Anya Schrier's blog.
