Cards Using Buttercup | January Counterfeit Kit

Sunday, January 20, 2019

Hiya! Today I'm sharing 3 cards I created using January Counterfeit Kit. (BTW, did you see that I affectionately named my kit Buttercup? I named it after the flower. This kit also makes me think of my grandma, who loved all things flowers and knew every flower type under the sun.

Okay so on to the projects! I really needed a birthday card for my bestie, so that's why I started with cards. They were really fun to make!

This is the one I ended up giving my bestie. All of the paper on all 3 cards are journaling cards. (I know, right?). A 4x6 card that I cut down, layered a 3x4 card, then a label that I cut from a card. Looooveee!!

Next, I added a piece of mint doily, washi tape, and a chipboard flower. Oh, and then some sequins (gotta have sequins!).

Card #2. Started with a 4x6 again, cut down, and layered a 3x4.  Tag is cut from a card also. I layered a circle stamp (left side), washi tape, then more sequins. The balloon is a stamp with a tiny bit of pink watercolor paint. And some twine for a bit of texture. Ta da!

And last, card #3, and def my FAV. I still can't believe I made this! The juices were definitely flowing this night. Same as before: 4x6 journaling cards + washi tape + a chipboard doily/heart thing. And more sequins of course.

So there you have it. If you just tuned in and want to see my kit, check it out here.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!


PS: After Googling, I learned that apparently Buttercups are poisonous to humans + cattle unless they are dried out. You learn something new every day!
