I made 5 cards from the Best Friends Crafty Courtyard Kit and I still have SO MANY goodies left over! Most of my cardstocks and papers, a lot of embellishments, and of course the stamps, dies, and stencils! The possibilities with this kit are endless! And I only brought in a few additional elements - I had to add some adhesives and ink, and I chose to use the A2 Layered Rectangles Die Set to cut my cardstock and patterned papers ( but you could use a paper trimmer! ).
Be sure to watch my video above for a full step by step walkthrough for each of these cards! My first card uses the stamp set and patterned paper from the Best Friends Crafty Courtyard Card Kit. I decided to do a faux watercolor technique by stamping on the back of the heart stamp and spritzing it with water! I heat embossed the detail layer on top and added a chipboard sentiment strip.
My second card is probably the most involved, but it's still super easy! I made a simple gate fold card and decorated the outside with cardstock, patterned paper, and a die cut stamp from the Best Friends Kit.
But I couldn't leave the inside empty! I used a matching stamped heart on the left flap and added some matching heart patterned paper!
It looks super fancy, but you'll see in the video just how easy it is to make!
My third card is one of my favorites! I had planned to stamp the hearts all over my background panel, but after stamping just two I realized how much I liked the simplicity! I used a yellow and pink ink to stamp the more solid heart image and black for the detail layered image. I added a stamped sentiment from the Best Friends Stamp Set and some glitter enamel shapes!
Here's another of my favorites! I used some gray ink and the Best Friends Stencil to create a background. Those cute little hearts and sentiment strip are from the chipboard stickers! No stamping on this card at all! Easy peasy!
My last card uses the Best Friends Stamp Set, patterned papers, and chipboard stickers. I stamped a sentiment and the leafy images from the stamp set and added the chipboard sticker flowers on top as well as just a couple of glitter enamel shapes. I trimmed down my panel slightly and added some pretty striped patterned papers!
