Here's a quick look at the February 2020 It's All About the Girls card kit...






I am so excited about this kit!! I am really loving all of the girly elements and I've had so much fun creating cards to share with you all... let's not waste any more time and get to the cards!!




Collection One: Be-You-tiful
Isn't she stunning?! I love this stamp! I used this collection for my sneak peek yesterday... if you missed that you can check it out here ---> It's All About the Girls Card Kit sneak peek!! For this card I started by trimming all of my layers of patterned papers and adhered them to a Pink Lemonade card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2". I used one of the fabulous sketches that you can check out here... February 2020 Sketch Sheet... and you can even download and save them, so handy!! I adhered the card front to a white card base and then inked up this pretty lady. I masked the lips and stamped the image with black ink. I then inked up the lips with a light pink ink and stamped it. I die cut the image with a stitched square die and mat it on Pink Lemonade card stock. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and die cut it with a banner die. I popped up the main image and the sentiment with foam squares and adhered them to the card. I added the gold heart sticker from the Me & My Big Ideas Sentiment Stickers included in the collection.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
VersaFine Onyx Black ink
Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush ink
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Taylored Expressions Stitched Square Stacklets
Lawn Fawn Everday Sentiment Banners dies



Collection Two: Birthday Queen
I love this big sentiment!! So many possibilities with this set! I trimmed and adhered all of my patterned paper layers to a Nightshift Blue card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2". The papers in this collection are so beautiful!! I love the gold accents... so I decided I'd use gold embossing powder for the sentiment! I popped up the sentiment and to finish this one off, I cut a few of the gold rhinestones off of the mesh and adhered them randomly around the sentiment.

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
VersaMark Watermark ink
Stampin' Up! Gold Glory embossing powder
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Xyron Creatopia Shapez Frame 2 die



Collection Three: Glass Slippers
I am always so honored when Teresa asks me to illustrate for the card kits and this time I got to design these beautiful glass slippers. I love how they turned out!! So fun to make them 'glass' by stamping them on vellum!! I stamped the glass slippers onto vellum card stock with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed an ultra fine white embossing powder. I fussy cut them out and added a bit of shadow to the back of the image with a blue prismacolor pencil. In person, it's much more subtle... the photo makes it look much darker. I set the glass slippers aside and cut my layers of patterned papers adhering them to a white card base. The papers in this collection are my absolute favorite!! Love them!! I popped up the main panel with foam squares and adhered the ephemera pieces. My final touch was a few of the enamel dots! This just may be my favorite card from this kit so far!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
VersaMark Watermark ink
Brutus Monroe Alabaster White embossing powder
Prismacolor Premier Colored pencil - Violet Blue PC933
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
PLUS Vellum Glue tape
Taylored Expressions Stitched Square Stacklets




Collection Four: Tea Party
This collection is so adorable!! The papers are so sweet with pretty colors and the Tea-rrific stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps is perfect!! I used the fun My Favorite Things sketch included in the February 2020 Sketch sheet... mostly because I have the dies used in the sketch! Using the dies sure made this card easy... but this sketch can totally be created without the dies. I thought it would be fun to paper piece the tea pot. It's been so long since I've paper pieced!! I also thought it would be a fun to jazz up the little organdy bag included in the collection. I adhered one of the wood icons to the organdy bag with Multi Medium Matte. I also added a white scalloped circle to the inside of the organdy bag so the adhesive would have something to adhered to. I die cut a scalloped circle from  Banana Split card stock and adhered the fussy cut teapot that I colored up with Copic markers. I think this will be a sweet little gift to send off to my tea-rrific sister!!

Supplies used (not found in the kit):
Copic markers ~ BV0000, BV01, BV11, R81, R83, R85, G24, N0, N2
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
Ranger Multi Medium Matte
My Favorite Things Blueprints 14 die
Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Large die

I sure hope you've enjoyed my cards today!
