As mentioned earlier, six of us Krafty Girls split up ONE of the October Kardmaking Kits to show you what can be made with the supplies. I made a card featuring Penelope. Isn't she sweet?? Remember, you get to choose an $8.00 stamp with your kit, so you could pick her if she isn't already part of your stamp collection! Aren't these papers gorgeous?? I love the colour scheme. Oh, and the brown corner embellishments and snowflakes were cut from the adhesive cork sheets! This was a fabulous product to work with. I used both punches and dies with it and it cut beautifully...just be careful with delicate cuts so you don't tear the material. The flourishes were cut with a Memory Box Die as was the large teal snowflake. The smaller snowflakes were cut with a Martha Stewart Punch and a portion of a Memory Box border die (more on that in a moment). Upper corner embellishments were cut with Classic Corners from Dies by SCACD. The little white glitter snowflakes are buttons that are included in the kit. I just snipped off the loop from the back to adhere them flat on the card. All papers and the glitter snowflakes were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. 

Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95  Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59, BV29  Dress: G20, G82, G85, G99, YG00, YG25, W5, W7, BV29, B21, B32, B45, B97  Jar: BG11, BG15, B99, V91, V93, V95, V99

I also decorated the inside of my card. Remember, with some frugal cutting, you can stretch the cardstock included in the kit. I trimmed the green cardstock from the front of the card for this interior matting layer. The cut out area on the front is hidden by the pattern need to let that cardstock go to waste!! The sentiment comes with the new Christmas Cheer set. I used more of the cork included in the kit to cut out this border with the Frostyville Memory Box die. I also used it to cut just one of the snowflakes for the front of the card.

Here's a picture of the contents of the kit:

And check out this sheet that has a bunch of fantastic tags...I used the blue one second  from the top right corner for matting Penelope! There are also some that are perfect for journalling or sentiments. 

Make sure to check out what five of my fellow Krafty Girls created for today's previews...remember, we all shared ONE October Kardmaking Kit! 

Thanks for stopping by!
