Market Fresh Feb. Kit Sneak Peek: Day 2

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Note:  It's been a busy 24 hours on my blog!  So, if you've come here looking for my SIT #69, Guest Designing for DYSU #58, PDCC118 - Simon Says Stamp, and/or my Market Fresh Feb. Kit Sneak Peek: Day 1 post(s), please scroll down.

It's so good to have ya'll back visiting for our second day of sneak peeks for Market Street Stamps' Market Fresh February Kit!  Yesterday we showed you all layouts, and even though I used nearly all the cardstock, from the kit, in their creation, I pulled a trio of card bases, along with a little thread and twine, from my stash, to bring you all a bundle of cards, showing more of what this beautiful kit has to offer.  So, let's get started.  Shall we?!
I started this card by adhering a strip of gray, gingham, patterned paper vertically down the center of a wider strip of aqua, ledger, patterned paper; machine stitching, with black-threaded, straight stitches, the vertical lengths of both of the papers' edges; and adhering the prepped piece down the vertical center of the 5" square, Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face.  I then machine stitched, with black-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between each of the various images on a square of vintage, image, patterned paper, before adhering it, to the card face, over the previous papers.
A length of gray, velvet ribbon, leftover from last month's Market Fresh Kit, was then wrapped, vertically, around the card face; tied, in a bow, near the card face's top edge; and embellished with a paper blossom, which, again, was leftover from last month's kit.  If you're lovin' those bits from last month's kit, it's your lucky day, because there's still a few left.  Woohoo!
That gorgeous, doily stamp was then stamped, in Pretty in Pink ink, on Very Vanilla cardstock; hand cut out; ink distressed; and adhered, with foam tape, just below the embellished bow.  Its center was then filled in with a cardstock, sticker, journaling spot, which had been ink distressed; stamped, in Basic Black ink, with the "Deepest Condolences" sentiment; and dressed up with a little glitter.
That makes one down and two more to go.  So, let's just keep right on moving.
I started this card by machine stitching, with brown-threaded, straight stitches, around the edges of a piece of green, floral, patterned paper and adhering it to the Chocolate Chip, cardstock, card face.  I then split a journaling card, which had been ink distressed and machine stitched with brown-threaded, straight stitches, and adhered each piece to the outside, vertical edges of the card face, before wrapping a length of hemp twine, three times, around its center and tying it, in a triplicate bow, near the right edge of the card face.
A "LOVE" label, cut from the backside of that green, floral, patterned paper, was ink distressed; framed with an ink distressed piece of textured, ivory cardstock; enhanced with a red, scalloped, cardstock sticker, which was cut in half and anchored to opposite corners of the framed, "LOVE" label; and adhered, with foam tape, in the center of the card face, to serve as my partial sentiment.
I then dressed up the "O" with a color-coordinating, canvas flower, whose center was embellished with a brown button, filled in with a large pearl.
Finally, I used another, cardstock, sticker label, which had been distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, to stamp, in Chocolate Chip ink, the completed, "you." sentiment, adhered it with foam tape, and dressed it up with a trio of pearls.
If you're still with me, I've got one more card creation, to share with you all, today.  Then, we'll all be back, at this same time, tomorrow, to show you the February, Market Fresh Farmhouse Dreamin' Kit in its entirety.
I started this card by machine stitching, with red-threaded, straight stitches, around the edges of the aqua, plaid, patterned paper and adhering it to the Basic Grey, cardstock, card face.  I then die cut a trio of hearts from an aqua, journaling card, which had been distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; trimmed it, across its bottom edge, with a punched strip of gray, gingham, patterned paper; and adhered it, with foam tape, near the top edge of the card face, over scraps of gray and aqua, floral, patterned paper.
Another, ink distressed, aqua, journaling card was, again, trimmed, across its bottom edge, with a punched strip of gray, gingham, patterned paper and tucked under the bottom right edge of the previous, die-cut, journaling card.  It was then used to house more of those fabulous, whitewash, woodgrain alphas and flanked with a stamped, in Real Red ink, on a gray, No. label, partial sentiment, which was adhered, with foam tape, to the left of the woodgrain alphas to create the "Hey, you" sentiment.
Finally, a trio of color-coordinating buttons, laced with Baker's Twine, top the die cut, journaling card and complete the look.  This button package is literally endless, ya'll!
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 at 7 pm CST, and I hope that you've had as much fun seeing the unlimited 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.
