Crafty Peeps Card Kit Club - April

Today, I have four cards to share that I made for the Card Kit Club
that I'm a part of with some of my "crafty peeps".

This month's gorgeous kit was provided by the incredibly talented Kristii Lockart --
I just love her style!
She sent us a packaged filled with Simple Stories patterned paper & some fun die cuts.

Here's the first card I made, using the patterned paper, card stock and "thanks" die cut
from the kit.

I cut the patterned paper on an angle for the tilt and added 

My next card uses more patterned paper from the kit....

I love that woodgrain and used it as a background, but added another strip of patterned
woodgrain along the top.
I cut out the mini journaling cards and stamped a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Slide Frame
("hello") and Wet Paint II ("you").
A few PTI buttons and twine finish it off.

I gave this next card to my husband yesterday for our eighteenth anniversary....

Kristii sent this Chevron Coverplate die cut along in the kit, so I backed it 
with some PTI tropical teal & aqua mist card stock, with a strip of the solid Simple Stories 
patterned paper from the kit in between.
I made the tag using some aqua mist card stock and Reverse Confetti's Tag Me die, which I elongated by only die cutting the top of the tag and trimming out the rest with my paper trimmer.
The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say -- can you believe I don't have a stamp
that says "Happy Anniversary"? Crazy!
I added a little bit of heart patterned paper from the kit and a PTI button and twine.

And lastly, I made this card...

I die two sheets of the kit's patterned paper with my Mama Elephant Femme Frames dies
 (the floral & a solid navy.)
I adhered these to some aqua mist card stock for my base and stamped
the sentiments from PTI's Wet Paint in navy.
To finish it off, I added some 4mm sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

 Please hop on over to my talented crafty peep, Jen Carter's blog
to see what she made with Kristii's kit.

And speaking of Pretty Pink Posh.....

Just a reminder that the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop
is coming up this Saturday.
The blog hop will run from the 26th to the 28th.
Paulina will have a spot to link up your sequin shaker cards on her blog.
(& she also has she also has a tutorial on her blog

It's sure to be a lot of fun!

Thanks for looking!
