So, let’s get started, shall we? My card today started with a Smooth White card base. Then, on another piece of Smooth White, I sponged three of the included colors for a background: Wild Wisteria ink, Berrylicious ink, and Gumdrop Green ink. Next I splattered it with water and was really pleased at the results. I’d only ever done that with watercolor paper and wasn’t sure how Smooth White would react—wonderfully is the answer. The splatters are a little rough which I think that just adds interest, because the ink moved so well on this card stock. Plus, Smooth White is great for sponging—your sponge glides easily and blending is amazing. Before popping it up on the base with foam mounting tape, I stamped the sentiment from the set with Black Licorice dye ink.

Then I cut a lot of flowers and stems, stamped with with all four of the kit colors, and “arranged” them in a vase cut from Smooth White. I popped it up on foam and finished off with some of the included clear sequins.

And there you have it for Day One of January’s Card Kit Reveal! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

  42. I NEVER buy kits because I don't like people picking things out for me. I made the comment earlier this month that I would have to fall in love with something to buy it because I really need to clean out my stash. No surprise then that MFT, my favorite stamp company, has some up with a kit that I not only adore for myself, but am thinking about buying two so I can gift one to a friend. THIS IS THE MOST AWESOME KIT I HAVE EVER SEEN! I'm buying!
