Watercolor Winter Sleigh

Stampin’ Up! offers many “kits” — both in their Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog — that contain just about everything you need to make cards (or whatever project the kit is geared towards).  Each kit also comes with directions for suggested uses of the contents; but sometimes it is fun to create something original with the kit pieces.

I spent some time this weekend in my craft room (when I was not taking a mini-vacation in Frisco with my husband and our grandson at the Rough Riders baseball game — geez, it was hot!) and created two cards using the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit that I received at Convention in July.  I was not head over heels in love with this kit (I think it was the water-coloring aspect of it) but I knew it had potential.

Here is the first (and so far my favorite) card I created using parts of the kit along with a few other Stampin’ Up! products.

The card base, sleigh, vellum snowflake and banners are from the kit.  I added some designer series paper matted with Real Red and Whisper White card stock, a vintage button and the silver snowflake embellishment.

Below is a list of all of the Stampin’ Up! products I used in the design of this card:

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you will come back again to see what else I have to share with you (oh, I placed my order for new products from the Holiday Catalog which will arrive early this week so I will have lots of new stuff to play with!).  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.

Until next time, stamp on my friends,
