Oct. Card Kit Four Ways_5

Hello friends! It’s Nina-Marie here with you today, welcoming you back to our newest Studio Monday video! We took a break from our normal blog schedule to bring you all the amazing, fun excitement of STAMPtember and I hope you enjoyed every minute of it as much as I did!

This week’s Studio Monday is going to be featuring our latest Monthly Card Kit, Nuts About You! I love this one, because not only are the products awesome, but the colors are DIVINE! I cannot tell you how inspiring these Fall colored papers, inks and embellishments were… this definitely put me into the Autumn Crafting kick!

We have sold out of the actual kit itself but some of the items included in the latest kit are available individually!!!! Those items include: our exclusive Nutty About You stamp set, Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid for Fall 6×6 papers, Little B’s Mini Acorn stickers, Ranger Archival Inks (in both Bright Tangelo and Paradise Teal) and Simon cardstocks in Audrey Blue, Burnt Orange, Dark Chocolate and pre-scored card 120# white card bases!

You can make SO much with this kit… so far I’ve made a total of seven cards using the kit’s contents, and I STILL have some things left over that I could use on other cards!

We are going to be looking at how I made five of those seven cards in today’s video; we’ve got a lot to talk about, so let’s get to it!

Oct. Card Kit Four Ways_10

In the video, I’ll be sharing some techniques and designs that can be created with the items in the kit; I purposely did not use very many items that are not included in the kit, because I wanted to demonstrate how easy it is to make beautiful cards using items from the kit. Some of the techniques we’ll be touching on are tone on tone stamping, creating die cut embellishments, emboss resist, and more.

Because we are focusing on so many different ways to use the kit (and I didn’t want to have the video be too long!), I will be showing mostly just the techniques used and then a quick overview of how each card finished up. These cards were very simple to create and all five can be done in one afternoon!  To see how, check out the video below!

  1. I love that you showed 4 cards for this kit and I hope that you make this a regular feature. Love the cards and this kit, can’t wait to start using mine. Love the cards you made and most of them could be mass produced.

  2. This kit is beyond words. The Fall like bright colors of the papers in this kit along with the stamp set and acorns makes this kit number 1.

  3. I just love all the fall colors and this kit does not disappoint, it is chocked full of autumnal inspiration! Thanks so much for sharing these new ideas for us!!! Happy crafting!

  4. I love the use of the clear embossing powder to amp up the sentiments. I really have to try this technique!

  5. The autumn greetings one… Oh my. It’s just beautiful. When I first saw this stamp set I thought of leaves blowing in the wind. Might have to try my hand at my own version of it.

  6. These cards are fantastic! I always learn so much from Nina Marie! Thanks for the awesome video too!
