Gossamer Blue - April Reveal

April 01, 2016

Hey everyone! Today is reveal day over at Gossamer Blue and the April kits are amazing! I have a few projects to share with you and I hope you like them!

First, I have this project life spread. I am using 9x12 pages which I created using design A page protectors and my fuse tool.

I really love the colors in this spread and I actually used a mix of past kits as well as the April Life Pages kit. The embellishments this month were absolutely stunning! Here, you can see 3 stickers from the Maggie Holmes Bloom 6x12 Puffy Stickers which was included in the Main Add-on kit. This was by far my favorite kit!

The stamp sets were also stunning, not much of a surprise there. ;) The stamp sets area always my favorite parts of the kits! The designs are so simple and can be used for anything. I love that they aren't themed like some other subscription kits out there. They are also great quality and you will always get great results.

For my other projects, I created a couple of cards! They were super easy and were put together so quickly, but they still look gorgeous.
This first card is just so cute, if I may say so myself. The plants are from a pack of die cuts by Pebbles which is included in the Main kit. The "bloom" is from the Maggie Holmes 6x12 stickers and I love how well it matches the plants. The strip on the side was created with on of the stamps in the Life Pages kit. I had to stamp it twice but it lined up perfectly. 

Here, you can see what parts I popped up with foam squares. I decided to a small piece to the top of the plant in the back just to make pop a bit more. Adding dimension on cards can make such a big difference. 

For this card, I used the stamp set from last much and repeatedly stamped the word "happy" to create a background. I then cut some patterned paper from the Main kit to create a tag. I then punched a hole, added embroidery thread and added the gorgeous butterfly sticker. This card is so simple but I absolutely love how it turned out.

Here is a close up of the butterfly.

That is it for today. I hope you like these projects and be sure to head over to the Gossamer Blue site and check out all of the kits!
