You Can Create It – July Kit

You Can Create It kits are a challenge of using a select group of consumable products to work with each month. Today’s inspiration is using the first month in current Quarters Kit – July monthly pack.

It features consumables from the You’re a Peach Designer paper, as well as others like cardstock and Fluid 100 watercolour paper.

I have created two cards using supplies from the July pack and some from the Extra materials supplies.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, YCCI kit,

This first one uses one of the pieces of designer paper and here I have used both sides to show the designs. I fussy cut some of the peaches and a leaf from half and used the reverse side of the remaining half to add some colour to the background.

I embossed some Basic White thick cardstock with Checks embossing folder and then blended some colour over to add interest. Then I set about layering the finishing touches – the fussy cut peaches, leaf and sentiment.

The second card featured some bold watercolouring, using the sample piece of Fluid 100 Water Colour paper. This paper is heavy cotton built for withstanding lots of water…. So here, spritzed the paper with water on both sides, then used the brush size water painter to add a light layer of colour first. Then I add a second layer which is more vivid in colour. I just love the veins of colour that escape the edges along the water.

Once dry I layered this over some designer paper and cardstock on to a base of Basic White thick cardstock. Then topped the water colouring panel with some Butterflies. I couldn’t decide on a sentiment, so am leaving it until I use the card, then I will pop the right one at the top there.
