Market Fresh Jan. Kit Sneak Peek: Day 2

Monday, January 9, 2012

Welcome back for another sneak peek of Market Street Stamps' first ever Market Fresh Kit!  It's so good to have you here visiting!  I promised you all some card creations in my Market Fresh Jan. Kit Sneak Peek: Day 1 post, and I'm here, today, to deliver.
I started this card by adhering a piece of turquoise, doily, patterned paper to the center of a piece of gray, design, patterned paper; machine stitching, to either side of the paper connections, with gray-threaded, straight stitches, the inside of which was tied off, to the front of the piece, at all four corners; and adhering the prepped piece to the kraft, cardstock, card face.
I then ink distressed each of three, journaling cards and adhered one, haphazardly and directly to the card face, before wrapping a length of gray, velvet ribbon, vertically, around the card face and tying it, in a bow, near the top edge of the card face.  Ya'll, Stephanie was uber generous with that ribbon.  This kit comes with two yards of it!  Woot!  Woot!
The last, two, journaling cards, the top of which was stamped, in Basic Black ink, with the "i like you just the way you are" sentiment...
and dressed up with a touch of glitter, were then adhered, with foam tape, one on top of the other, to complete the look.
But that's not all!  I've got two, more, card creations, to share with you all, today.  So, I hope you'll hang on for the ride.
I started this card by piecing punched strips of patterned papers onto a piece of kraft cardstock; adhering it to the hot pink, cardstock, card face, whose edges were then softened with a little Ivory White, acrylic paint; and machine stitching, with ivory-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges.
I then wrapped a length of white, seam binding ribbon, vertically, around the left half of the card face; tied it, in a dressy bow, near the top edge of the card face; and embellished it with an aqua, paper bloom.
Finally, I tucked one of those yummy, journaling cards, which I trimmed down, rounded two of the corners of, and ink distressed, in the center of the card face, tucked under the embellished bow, with foam tape.
I hope you're still with me, because I've got one more sweet, little number, for your viewing pleasure, today.  And you don't want to miss it, because it shows off the fantastic, Market Street stamp that comes in your kit.  It was running a little behind at the manufacturers, but I'm so excited that it arrived in time for our card creations sneak peek!
I started this card by stamping the birds image, in Jet Black ink, near the bottom of a piece of Whisper White cardstock and coloring it in with Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Lucky Limeade, Barely Banana, & Crumb Cake inks and a blender pen.
I then masked off the colored image, as well as several clouds in the space above and below the image, and inked the entire panel with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, before black embossing the "LOVE BIRDS" image, centered above the inky birds in the cloudy sky.
After adhering the prepped piece to a piece of hot pink, polka dot, patterned paper and trimming it, across its bottom edge, with a heart die cut, I machine stitched, with red-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges.
A length of red, gingham ribbon was then wrapped around the card face, before the entire prepped piece was adhered, with foam tape, to its center; laced through a hole I punched near the right edge of the prepped piece; and tied, in a bow, near the prepped piece's right edge.  A touch of glitter and a turquoise button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows, complete the look.
That's it, folks!  I have had so much fun making these projects to show off this fabulous Market Fresh Kit, which will be available for purchase tomorrow, and I hope that you've had as much fun seeing the potential it contains.
Please be sure to stop by the Market Street Stamps Blog to check out more details of the kit club subscription and the Market Fresh Kits Group in the Neighborhood, as well as by my teammates' blogs, to see what they've cooked up with their kit goodies.
