The following projects were made using Studio Calico's "Iconic" Kit.
This layout could also pass for this month's Kaya challenge but I already submitted one so I guess I'll just post it here. Anyway, it took a while for me to complete this layout because I struggled with the elements - like those yellow vinyl Thickers. I had to distress them a bit with chalk ink to mute the brightness of the color. Arggh...I really hate the viny Thickers! The adhesive is so gooey and they don't stick well. If I try to remove them, they leave a mark behind.
I added the pearls to the butterfly transparency (Heidi Swapp) for added texture and dimension. Oh, and those stamps are the cutest! I adhered the frame with foam dots to make it pop on the page.
The strip of paper that says "Soda Water" is actually a patterned paper from Jenni Bowlin. I just cut a one-inch strip, distressed it and pleated a few inches. The phone book page which I tore was really fragile. Not sure if it's acid-free since it is already falling apart. I used it anyway. LOL!
I made this card for a friend's baby shower. The train and giraffes were cut using the Animal Crackers cartridge of Slice.
The next card is for my dad on Father's Day. I used the stamp from the Iconic Kit.
The stamped image is actually adhered on the inside page of the card. I just punched a semi-circle on the cover.
The message explains why I used the guy holding an umbrella. :D
And this is the envelop. I love the colors!
Thanks for looking!
