I'm in love with the Homespun Christmas Kit! Perfect for both traditional and non traditional Holiday projects. This kit is not part of the regular Crafty Courtyard subscription and WILL need to be purchased separately. Grab it up quick! There are limited quantities and it's a fabulous kit! There is so much packed into this kit - a large 6x8 stamp set WITH coordinating dies, a full patterned paper pack as well as a pack of foiled cardstock, a stencil, and MORE!
I went classic and simple with my first card. I used the Pink & Main Stitched Rectangles 1 Die Set to cut out various patterned papers from the Homespun Christmas Kit and stacked them together. I added a bit of baker's twine from my stash for a small detailed accent and added the mason jar of poinsettias in the center of my card. This image is gorgeous! You can color the poinsettias traditionally as I have or color them with teals for a non traditional look.
I can't create with a card kit without creating a shaker card! I decided to mix traditional and non traditional colors on my card. I used the Reverse Scalloped Rectangle Dies to cut out a frame from a piece of patterned paper and used acetate and foam tape to create a shaker well. I filled it with sequins from the kit and backed it with a cream colored paper. I colored the bells and stamped a sentiment and added them to the center of the shaker.
My third project is a tag - I thought it would be cute to have something a bit different! I used the stencil included in the Homespun Christmas Kit and stenciled some light brown ink onto white cardstock and used the Fancy Tag Die Set to cut my tag shapes. I accented with some of the gold foil cardstock in the kit and added a sentiment strip and the candy cane image.
I liked the stencil so much that I decided to use it again and stretch it across a slimline card! I ink blended with a light blue ink and then shifted the stencil to the right and blended ink over the rest of the panel. I used the frame die from the Blessings Slimline Die Set to create a nice scalloped edge and added the lantern and a sentiment.
I went with non traditional colors for my last card - lime green and pink! And I colored the stocking with some aqua markers, too! I used the Concave Rectangles Die Set and hung the die-cut piece off the edge of the card for some interest. The patterned papers in the Homespun Christmas Kit are stunning!
I am over the moon in love with the Homespun Christmas Kit! Remember that it's a limited edition kit and not part of the regular Crafty Courtyard subscription, so hurry over to the Pink & Main Store and grab yours!
