Studio Calico The Underground Kit7:00 PM
Hey hey, did you see? London's calling at Studio Calico this month! I would love to find out what you think about the October kits because it's been one of those that don't just look awesome but are easy to work with, too. Anyway, you guys are here to see some cards… first up, though, let's get an overview of what is in the main card kit this time.
Good stuff, eh? The feather die and stamps set with this clean and trendy font face may just be my favorite items. For my first card I added some extra items, though. For one, the SC tag dies and second, an Alice in Wonderland inspired Tea Time stamp add-on.

This card is a main kit only and again this kit proofs to be really versatile beyond the initial fall/halloween feel! The feather die is so feminine and it cut through the thick copper color paper (also included in the main kit) like butter. I cut bigger feather with the Silhouette for layering here.

Ready for a mad-hatter tea party? Of course, I just had to use the tea cup from Tea Time set as well. I found the pocket tags in the card kit are great to send your favorite tea along with some warm greetings or get well wishes this fall. A single bag fits in perfectly!

This Halloween card was the first thing I made this month and the card kit stamp set got me completely in the mood for fall. The pumpkin and tiny addition stamps can even be turned into a halloween face… both creepy and cute :) Also, this card made go a little artsy with some pencil lines and watercolors on top of the stamps for more dimension.

Lastly, my personal favorite from the cards I made this month. I mean, how pretty are those leaf die-cuts by Marcy? I cut a bunch from patterned paper then die-cut another from the copper paper for some contrast. After I arranged them on paper in alternating direction, I sewed the single pieces down in the middle and bent the paper up as to not have them all lay flat on paper.
One last tip: today is last call at Studio Calico, i.e. you may snag some cool items on clearance! Thanks for stopping, everyone :)
