The Stamps of Life - October Kit

It is Kit Kraft Wednesday, that day where I commit to using supplies from one of my monthly kits to create!  This week I pulled out my newest kit from The Stamps of Life (loving this darn kit).  This is the second kit that I've received, and while priced a little higher than some of the other kits out there, it does not disappoint because it comes with more cardstock than some of the other kids I received as well as envelopes.  It also seems to have more embellishments than the typical kits, so I truly believe that you are getting what you pay for!  

So I'm sharing two cards with you today, the first for CAS(E) this Sketch (the sketch is noted further below with the supplies).  

I just loved that floral paper and felt that this sketch could really showcase the pretty pattern.  I realized after that my only stamping was on the inside of the card . . . proving you can make a card without stamping.  

The second card that I'm sharing was created for Seize the Birthday challenge.  The "toppings" challenge this week was to use washi tape, and my kit had the most adorable "hello" washi tape that I wouldn't wait to use. 

 I used a white panel to build upon, and started with a few rows of that awesome washi tape.  I then added a strip of yellow pattern paper and the dot paper below.  I doubled up the "Beautiful" die so it would pop a bit more off the card, and I stamped and then hand cut those white banners. 

Looking forward to creating some additional cards with this kit in the coming days. 

As always, I hope you find some time to create!
