Stampin' Up 2016 Occasions Catalog You're So Lovely Project Kit II

Ahhhh...I got my cards from Stampin' Up's You're So Lovely Project Kit done without any more greasy/oily accidents.  What a great feeling and I LOVE how they turned out!

The kit makes 12 cards, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", and 12 bags with tags.  Included in the kit are gold foil card bases, white envelopes and glassine bags; Baker's Twine, sponge brayer with extra sponge; stencils, die-cut tags, banners, and accent pieces; banner paper clips and metallic enamel shapes.

The kit coordinates with SU's You're So Lovely Stamp Set.  I used my Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black Archival and Whisper White Craft Inks, Stampin' Dimensionals and Gold Metallic Thread to complete my cards.

Today, I will share the cards that I made and hopefully tomorrow I can share the gift bags.

Let's jump right in with the project:

The only thing I did different from the instructions on this card was to add some Gold Metallic Thread.  You all know how I like my Bling-Bling!  =)

The only thing I did different from the instructions on this card was to use a sentiment from a different SU stamp set in the annual catalog called Crazy About You.

My Good Friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, had the great idea to line our envelopes.  Gosh, I haven't lined an envelope in forever!  It sure Glam's them up! I used SU's 2015-2017 In-Color Designers Series Paper Stack to line my envelopes.  Kadie is so talented and I just adore her work!

The stencils in the kit are amazing.  You get negative and positive images of a Butterfly, Gem, Star, Wreath and Circles Within a Circle.  In the picture above, I used a SU sponge and sponged around the solid butterfly image.

The only thing I did different on this card was to add an antenna to the butterfly using SU's Two-Tone Mint Macaron and Basic Black Baker's Twine and used the Hello sentiment.

In the picture above, I used the negative image and sponged the inside of the star on my card.  The only thing I did different from the instructions on this card was to add some SU Gold Metallic Thread and used a sentiment from SU's Talented Trio Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog.

On this card, I used a sponge dauber to sponge the ink around the outside of the solid star stencil.

I LOVE this gem shape and how perfect for a wedding card.  One thing I highly suggest with this kit is to make sure your die-cuts line up with your sponged image before you glue them down.  The die-cuts are not symmetrical in shape.

The only thing that I did different on the card above was to use a different sentiment.  I used the LOVE YOU sentiment from the new 2016 Occasions Catalog Stamp Set called Bloomin' Love.

And, I have 4 cards left to play with (well 3 after my Hubby ruined one).  The best thing is I can make my cards any way that I want and come up with some very different creations.

Hopefully, I will be back tomorrow to show you the gift bags from this project kit.
