Walden Card Kit Is Here - Studio Calico November Card Kit

Hi everyone!  It's Studio Calico release day...always such a fun day!  And I have several projects to share with you.  I created these projects with the Walden Card Kit.  I also had the opportunity to create some projects with the Wreath Stamp Set and the Holiday and New Years Stamp Set.  Both stamp sets are a part of this month's release as well.

This months kit is full of fun embellishments, papers and an awesome stamp set.  I especially love the acrylic sentiment pieces and the wood veneer.  The little deer is so much fun too.  You'll see that I used that on a card...but I painted him gold first.  Because who doesn't love a little gold deer?

As usual on release day, I've created a video tutorial using this month's kit.  You can see the video below.  The video tutorial will walk you through how I created this card...The One With The Nut.  This card was created using supplies from the Walden Card Kit...along with just a couple inks and embossing powders from my stash.  Scroll to the bottom of this post to see the video tutorial.

I also created these cards using just the main card kit.

I love the black acrylic sentiments that are included in the kit!

Here's a look at the cards I created by combining the Walden Card Kit and the Wreath Stamp Set.

And finally, here's a look at the cards I created using the Holiday and New Years Stamp set.  Such a fun set that you can really use year round!

So there you have it!  Tons of inspiration, featuring the Walden Card Kit.  I've included links below to the products used in these projects.

This kit will go on sale for Studio Calico subscribers at Noon EST on October 27th.  For those who aren't subscribers, you can purchase this kit beginning at midnight.  If you love what you see, you might want to consider subscribing to the Studio Calico card kit.  You can click HERE to find out more about a Studio Calico subscription.

Tis The Season Card - Tips For Mass Producing

Hi everyone!  I'm gearing up for the Send Joy class over at Studio Calico.  I will be contributing to this class that's all about making your own handmade holiday cards, tags and more.  With that in mind, I've been thinking a lot about cards that can be produced in bulk.  So I thought I would drop by today and share a card that I created with mass production in mind.

I used the Holiday Hello stamp set from Studio Calico for this project.  This stamp set was designed by none other than THE Kelly Purkey.  It's fabulous and has some really fun images.  I knew it would be perfect for creating a holiday card that can be produced over and over again.  Stamps are the one thing that you can use and use...they never run out.

I've created a video walking you through the entire creation of this card.  I'll also share some of my favorite tips for mass producing in the video.  I've included links to all the products used in this project as well.  Just click the link to go directly to the product page.

I'll also show you how I created this two color stamped greeting!  It's easier than you think!  It's the perfect way to add a little more WOW to your mass produced cards!

The Send Joy class is enrolling now through October 31st over at Studio Calico.  Don't miss this class.  Lisa Spangler is teaching the class and  Jennifer McGuireJulie EbersoleAmber Kemp-Gerstel, JJ Bolton and myself will be contributing.  It's going to be amazing!  Just look at those contributors!  

You can also check out all of the class supplies available by clicking HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you've enjoyed this project...and have been inspired to create your own holiday cards this season.  It's so much fun!

Have a fabulous day!
