Oct. 1st ~ World Card Making Day + Give away!

 So, I figured with it being WORLD CARD MAKING DAY, I would show you all the finished cards I've made lately! I had so much fun using my Tattered Angels Timeless Romance Kit!


This lovely kit has a lot of wonderful stuff including: envelopes, card stock, printed papers, tags, mini call cards, three shades of Glimmer Mist and the Glimmer Screen, ribbons, and rhinestone embellishments. I really think it is a great value for $30.00.

 I made all 5 cards and 2 envelopes that were featured in the step-by-step instructions that was included in the kit, and 1 card and envelope of my own. And better yet, there still is allot of product left over. I'd say I have at least enough to make another 6- 10 cards, about half of the 1 oz. mini spray bottles of glimmer mist is left, and half the rhinestones as well. The only thing I am out of is the thin brown string they refer to as twine, which is not a big deal! Also, I personally didn't own any glimmer mists until I got this kit, so this definitely was a great way to get to try them out!

Now due to some difficulties with my camera (resolved now), I don't have any step-by-step pictures for you this time, but if you buy this kit it has a printed copy of how to do them all! The only other thing I have to say is make sure to get out some old newspaper to spray over, or better yet try out this cool Color Catcher. It's great for keeping the over spray off your furniture or other items!!

Now onto what I made:

The 2 envelopes:

And the cards:

What great designs!

Now, here's my own personal card design. I made it, using stuff from the kit:

Close ups of the front of card design

and the envelope

Like I said they were fun to make, although a bit messy and did involve some fussy cutting. (Which I like anyways)
I did need to use a few things that were called for in the instructions but weren't included in the kit:
scissors, glue, brown and black ink, red sparkle stickles, crape (tissue) paper, a heart shaped punch, and a stapler. So, this is something to keep in mind if you want your cards to be exactly the same!

Hope you had fun seeing my cards, and this kit has made the rest of them appear on my "To Do List"!

Now about the give away: I've decided to make a custom card for one of my lucky followers using the stuff from this kit!! I know I'm a long way from 50 followers, but I want to give something away!
