Fact: You're Amazing (June 2013 Card Kit)

Hi all! Kristina here. :)

Today I have a card using supplies from the June 2013 Card Kit. I used little strips of patterned paper, embossing the "You Are Amazing" stamp from the Kelly Purkey Dude stamp set that's included in the kit (or available for purchase separately HERE), and also the letter stickers from the kit.

I love the Tim Holtz Core-dinations paper in the kit, too, and wanted to show the kraft core. So even though tearing paper isn't usually my thing, I decided it would look great on this more masculine card.

Be sure to watch the video for some heat embossing tips as well. :)

  6. Third, let's say you are not satisfied with the camera that you purchased and you decide to change. What is the best point and shoot digital camera 2011. It's slightly different in terms of look and design, but in terms of functionality
    the only improvement is a digital zoom.

  7. WOW gorgeous card, really beautiful and thanks soo much for the cool embossingtip in the video too, it´s always great to get these small hints and tips. Now I just hope this kit will soon show up, as last months kit still hasn´t shown here yet.

  8. I LOVE that embossed background! Gorgeous card Kristina!

  9. I think this is one of my favorite cards you've done Kristina, even though I know I've said it before. ;-) I like the so-called "masculine" look and wouldn't hesitate to give a card like this to a female friend, though I might change the washi tape if I did so.... Everything about this is perfect: design, colors, paper, sticker font and size, embellishments. I LOVE the embossed background. That process never ceases to amuse and astound me.

  10. This paragraph will help the internet users for setting up new web site or even
    a blog from start to end.

  12. Cool card. Cant wait to get my kit. I like that crackle paper how it looks like u just stuck the top part that u tore off on the bottom of card. Instead of it actually being the 1 piece it is. Especially with the dash lines the way they are. Super cool. Those I.O stamps are huge. Gonna have to save some more pennies.

  13. Love this gorgeous card. The embossed card base is fabulous!

  14. Thanks for the tutorial! I love seeing how your card came together and especially love the background!

  15. Love the card! I always have heated the back of the paper when embossing, but so glad to know about heating the tool up first. I've been doing that since you first suggested it and what a difference it makes. Thanks for that tip.

  16. What a gret card. I am really considering these kits. So funa nd could be a fun challenge to use up all the parts
