Take 2 Thursday- Studio Calico Hello Hello

Hello, hello friends and Happy Thursday!

Lindsay and I are back for another Take 2 Thursday and this week, we are playing with the June Card Kit from Studio Calico called Hello Hello.

After my beloved Archivers closed earlier this year, I picked up a subscription to two kit clubs to have a way to infuse some newer crafty items into my supply stash each month.  It's been fun getting a box of inspiring goodies with a selection of patterned papers and embellishments. Any items that I don't see myself using, I plan to sell or give away to keep my supplies at a manageable level.

Of course, my favorite part of any kit is the stamps, so playing with the Hello Hello stamp set, I created two cards. First up, a floral thank you card.  I used some of the shapes in the stamp set to create some flowers and leaves.

I stamped the flower centers in black and added a black enamel dot to the center.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink and adhered the panel to a kraft card base. 

Next up is a more graphic card using the polka dot stamp.  I stamped the dots across the card front in rainbow shades of ink.  I alternated the direction of the stamp and it created the fun zig-zag pattern. 

I matted the stamped panel with black cardstock  and adhered it to a green card base.  

I stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper and adhered it to the card with foam tape. 

Here is a look at the June kit- I think there some still available at the Studio Calico store. ;o)

Well that's all for me today.  Be sure to stop by Lindsay's blog to see her fantastic work with this kit.
