I know, tons of information.....just know that when the kit is gone, it is sold out.  This month is super fun + festive!  Here's a card that uses images from the main kit:


I remember we had a pinata for my boy when he was younger.  The kids couldn't hit it hard enough to make the candy drop out...LOL.  What a fun party game though!  I layered up panels from the Blush and Sunshine Mixed Layering Paper Packs.  I ran a Nesting Rectangle Infinity Die on an A2 Midnight panel to make my card frame.  The kit images have been stamped with Intense Black and colored with alcohol markers.

Here's another card that uses the cute CM254 Cinco de Meow set:


I stepped away from the bright 'fiesta' colors and fell back to my favorite colors from the Foliage and Pool Mix Layering Paper Packs.  I made my own pattern paper!  I trimmed strips of paper to 1/2 inch in width and adhered them onto a panel.  The sweet cat was stamped with Intense Black and colored with alcohol markers.

My card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:



That's it for me...up next is the awesome Emily!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the hop listing for today!

  3. Amy I love both of your cards. The pinata is colourful and fun as is the game. It brings back memories for me of my sister's party, and we didn't realize you actually had to fill the pinata with candy. We laughed about that one for years! Your sweet meow kitten card is beautiful in those muted greens and I love the sketch design you chose to showcase the images. Great cards!
