Most of the ingredients are from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit for October.
The DP is 6x6 so it is perfect for my favorite size cards. The buttery colored strip on the front is textures cs and it is yummy. The Flower is not from the kit, but the bird is and is by Maya Road. In this Kit came an entire package of Maya Road chipboard birds and 2 bird cages, totally fun and they are plain. So when I saw that there was also a small spritz bottle of Avocado Metallic Maya Mist in it and after I saw the projects done by the Baker's Dozen, I knew I had to try that stuff out ;D.
Here is the Recipe for the card:
Paper: PTI Kraft, buttery yellow textured paper, DP from the Key Ingredients Kit
Stamp: Thank you for being there by Inkadinkado
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chalk Box Chestnut Roan for the sponging
Accessories: Maya Road chipboard bird from the Kit, Avocado Metallic Maya Mist also from the Kit, black Kaiser half pearl as the eye on the bird, Prima Flower from my stash, 3D-dots.
Taylor has these cool Kits all nicely put together with all the perfect coordinating material you'll need for some fun cards or other projects. I had a subscription for 3 month which cost $ 22.95 per month and the best part, you are getting charged around the 15th of the month and not all in advance which I really like. My 3 month subscription is up, but I will subscribe for the 6 months now. I love the quality of the papers and the fact that it is all ready for you. Would make a nice gift as well. You can read more about it here Key Ingredients Kit at Taylored Expressions
For my second card I played around with my chalks and my blender pen and an Whiff of Joy image I've had for a while, but really never inked up.
Paper: PTI White, DCWV pink textured cs, Basic Grey Urban Prairie
Stamp: Whiff of Joy (the name of this stamp was not on the package but it says an Elisabeth Bell image)
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, pink Chalk ink
Accessories: Blender Pen, Pearlescent Chalks, Prima Hydrangeas from the Strawberry Collection, silver butterfly charm from Walmart, pink sheer ribbon from my stash ( I still have from Okinawa, Japan ;D), half pearls, silver spacer beads, violet glitter pen, Sakura Gel roller, 3D dots
I could not really get the shimmer of the chalks captured with my camera, but IRL it is pretty shimmery. The Sakura Gel roller was used on the swirl on the bottom of her jeans and the Violet glitter pen was used for the flowers in the basket, the flower on her jeans and her headband and bow on her shirt. It's a girlie card for sure, but I think I'll give this card to my 8 y.o. who has been writing and outstanding book report over her Fall break. :D You know, you've got to keep encourage them.
Well, that is it. I am sorry for the long post, but I just had to tell you all about my big mistake with this Maya Mist spray, LOL!!!
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so very much for stopping by.
