Hooray It's Your Day

Hello again!

Today I'm sharing a couple cards I made a few weeks ago with the Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit from the Occasions catalogue (only 3 days left to order it!).  It has awesome decorative masks and embellishments to decorate the variety of card bases and tags included in the kit.  Summer brings a large number of family birthdays so these cards, for my granddaughter and youngest grandson, are part of my stash so that I'm not making cards in a last minute fire drill!

Isn't this a fun card!  The sun rays were made with one of two decorative masks in the kit, using Daffodil Delight and a sponge dauber on a 4" x 5 1/2" panel of Whisper White card stock, which was then layered over the card base.  Bermuda Bay washi tape was adhered to the right hand edge of the card base.  The paper clip and wooden stars along with the number stickers were applied to the front and a bit of Coastal Cabana twine wrapped around the inside edge.  All of the embellishments and washi tape, excluding the twine, were included in the kit.

This card just shouts "girly girl" which is perfect for our 10-year old to-be.  I started with a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Whisper White card stock, then created the pattern used the second decorative mask in the kit and a stamping spritzer filled with rubbing alcohol mixed with a bit of Melon Mambo reinker.  It took a couple tries to get relatively even coverage, but that says more about my unfamiliarity with the technique than the products.  This panel took some dry time and because anything that gets that wet will warp, strong adhesive was used to attach it to the Whisper White layer underneath.

The tag, the wood sentiment and glitter strip were also included in the kit.  The Hooray It's Your Day stamp set, available separately, was used for the sentiment on both cards.

Thanks for the visit!  I'd love to hear what your thoughts are about card kits - have you ever bought one?  If so, do you end up using everything in it or does it get pushed aside as a future to-do?  I have plans for additional cards but have not gotten back to the kit since I made these.
