Four-of-a-Kind - April 2014 Guest Design

IMG_4311





So excited to be posting today as a guest at the Four-of-a-Kind quarterly kit club. Sweet Kim Heggins of Cupcakes, Cards & Kim invited me to be a guest for the April kit.  Kim is the hostess this month and she sent the most fabulous kit loaded with gorgeous patterned papers, die cuts and embellies featuring stamped images from Reverse Confetti, The Alley Ways and Paper Smooches.  Another awesome addition were images cut from Kim's Silhouette.  This kit was loaded with supplies to play with, I could have made a half dozen more cards.  Kim also sent a project for us to try, a tea caddy. However, I had butterfingers, so I will give it a try another day. This is the kits she sent:




Here is what I created...

Butterfingers...LOL. I guess that is what I should have called myself too! Love your cute cards. My favorite is the first one...love the coffee text layered over the bright colored mug. I also really like the What's Perking card with the little sequins and bright yellow bow. You did so much with Kim's kit...we'll give that tea caddy a try during Stampafaire when we are all together...at least on Skype!

Tracey...each and everyone of your cards are amazing! What I really love is how you used all the patterned paper, it really brings each card to life. My favorite of all them is your first card, there is something about the orange mug against the green background, so fun! Thank you again for playing along with us this month!

Awesome! I love all the word-bubbles/sentiments on your cards. This kit looks like it was a lot of fun!

Kelly Griglione said...

Awesome cards, Tracey! That first one looks like it could be an advertisement, or store display. Well designed!

Joyce said...

Tracey--I love everything you did with Kim's kit. I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to come round and comment, but I will confess I peeked on my phone the day it all went live. Most impressive of all to me are first--that I know you did all of these in a creative burst in the middle of the night, and two--that you made such great use of all those fun patterned papers Kim sent us.

cm said...

Congrats on the GD spot and WOW x WOW with each one of your unique, charming, lovely cards! You've worked magic yet again!! LOVE these!!

This kit looks like so much fun! Have to agree with the previous comment that it is amazing how you keep true to your style even with the mix of patterns. I think I'm going to pin them all!
