You all know how much I L-O-V-E SU! goodies … when it comes to stamping! I have seen a sneak peek of the next mini catty … and it looks fantabulous. (I have to start putting some $$$ aside for that one!) I am missing being part of the SU! family (as a demo) … but in the last 12 months or so … I have been very keen to try some of the products I have seen being used by some of my lovely blog friends! You are all such a B-A-D influence on me! A bad influence … yet … so inspiring! I finally succumbed (thanks to Monika) to subscribing to the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients card kit a couple of weeks ago. This is a 3 month sub … for a super price! And … as suggested … all the KEY INGREDIENTS for a card are there! This is what I got in the mail for my 1st month …
The papers alone are a gorgeous ‘spring board’ for making a card. The colours are so fun and fresh … and summery! (Sigh … if only it were summer here … I am over the cold weather!) Sorry about the ‘fluro’ look to the kit photo … the colours are a bit too ‘saturated’! I don’t know what happened?? 😯 IRL … these colours are just yummy! This is my first attempt of a card … in a long while … (a few days is a ‘LONG WHILE’ in a stampers life!!! … but it has been 2 or 3 weeks for me!)
I think I mentioned to Melissa yesterday … the more I blog hop … the more I realise how little mojo I have had lately! 😦 Even when I finally found the time to stamp on Saturday (yes … I made 4 cards) … I found it such a struggle to put things together! So … I guess a card kit is a good way to get the juices flowing … when you are suffering from lack of mojo! Taylor has single kits … as well as her 3 month subscription kits. What fun … my month 2 kit should arrive any day now … it is exciting to see what is in each kit when it arrives!
I wish I had added a lot more depth to the cupcake … with more colour. It seems a little ‘insipid’ next to the bright funky paper! Oh well! 😀 I hope to share another card using this kit tomorrow! I think I am a little happier with the 2nd … but the mojo is still being elusive! 😉 I think I just need to stamp a little more often!!! 😉 Don’t you??? 😀
