Studio Calico October Kits: Atiquary

Are you guys so excited about the Antiquary kits from Studio Calico!? They're AVAILABLE NOW- run over to the shop and check em out!
Today, I'm sharing some cards that I made with the Antiquary Card Kit and the Athens Card Add-on! 

LOVE these fun leaves (Antiquary Thankful Cut Designs) that Shanna created for us this month! I kept it simple and let those fun shapes shine!
I cut out the shape using my Silhouette Cameo and also created a white background to really make them pop!
The sentiment and leaves are from the Antiquary Card Kit!
Oh my.... I'm having so much fun with these coordinating dies! On this card, I used the Harvest Moon dies to create a background for my card- focusing on the negative space the dies leave behind. I cut a bunch of leaves out of a sheet of kraft cardstock and then layered patterned paper behind each cut-out.
LOVE the fall, warm feel of this card! The glittery gold dots just topped it off!

Playing with those fun dies again! This time, I used the die cuts to make a background for my card! I simply cut out a bunch of the leaf shapes, inked around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and my Ink Blender tool, and then glued them to a sheet of kraft cardstock.
The sentiment, ribbon, and patterned paper are all from the gorgeous Card Kit!

I had a little time to play around with the Athens Card Add-on this month, too! LOVE that there are coordinating dies to go with these beautiful stamps- the dies are called Boxwood Garden...
I stamped and cut out the leaf and flower image first, coloring them with Copics. Then, to make the sentiment really stand out, I cut the frame out of the kraft cardstock and stamped my sentiment inside.
I love the design of that sweet floral stamp, so I stamped it repeatedly on the kraft cardstock in gold ink to really let it shine!

Hey : Thataway

How's it going? I'm winding down tonight from a very busy week! I started my student teaching last week in a fifth grade classroom and I come home PRETTY tired each day! If you're wondering where I am.... I'm either at school or in my bed! Haha!
I thought I'd pop in tonight and share a quick card with you! I made this one with some fun new stuff from the Studio Calico Thataway collection!
LOVE the colors in this collection- lots of pretty yellows, teals, and pinks! On this card I used a sheet of 12x12 paper (it's called Roundabouts) and some fun papers from the 6x6 pad, too!
I am having SO much fun with these Stitched Pockets! I simply slipped in a sheet of white cardstock with the word "HEY" spelled out with Chalkboard Stickers.

The little sentiments on the side are super cute.... I had a lot of fun with them! There's a sheet of paper in the 6x6 pad full of these fun sayings- I cut out the ones I liked and adhered them with foam tape!
Thanks so much for stopping by! See ya soon!
