Love From Lizi - February 2018 Card Kit

I have super exciting news: I was asked to participate on the Love From Lizi Social Media Design Team!!  This means I will be receiving the lovely card kits that Lizi creates each month!! I will not be required to make the 10 Cards/1 Kit video, but to make the cards and create related blogs. I will probably still make the videos! But please keep an eye here for upcoming blog posts including the Love From Lizi Card Kits!!

For my first post for Love From Lizi, I have made almost 20 cards with the February Card kit!! I'm going to start with the first 10 cards, which I made a Reveal Video for, which  you can watch on my YouTube channel.

The paper I used for the base of this card was my absolute favorite! Paired with the green Love Wreath and Everyday sticker, then matting done with the yellow and pink card stock from the kit. I added hot-pink embroidery floss from my stash and finished with sequins from the kit.

My second card used the black and pink Argile-style paper, and used up some more of my favorite paper as a banner to match the chalk-board banner piece. Paired that with the yellow-heart paper, all matted on hot pink to make them stand out. Hot-pink embroidery floss again, hand stitched across the top and finished with a few more sequins from the kit, matted on pink, and placed on a top-folding card base!
The next one I make, I like so much, that I made a second one very similar to the first!  I loved the way the cupcake paper matched with the cupcake on the chalk-board piece. I used some yellow Stickles to accentuate the candles on the cake piece.

Another lovely Birthday card using this heart chalk board piece. The heart was gilded with the Nuvo flakes in the kit. I used the Gold Peel-offs around the edges.
Look, a Non-Birthday Card!! I felt that the Be Dazzling cut apart went great with the diamond paperclip and the gold-mirror pieces. I love how all the elements of this design came together!
Another CAS style card! I like the simple design with just the 3 colors.

 I loved the combination of these colors and the chunky glitter.  Paired it with the Celebrate cut-apart, and some of the pink ribbon from the kit.

Love your Fabulous Self! Paired the cut apart with the Harlequin design paper and black & white striped paper. Finished it with the gold peel-aparts and  gold banner piece from the glitter card-stock.

This is probably my favorite card from the whole set. I loved this ombre striped paper. The cloud piece was created with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. Love this spinner design with the balloon!

 I liked the way this paper matched the Celebrate the Everyday Moments cut-apart. I accentuared the side-bars with some of the gold peel-aparts. I finished it all off with the narrow lime-ribbon, a small banner cut with the die in the kit, and some pink Nuvo drops, also from the kit.

The last 2 cards did not turn out as well as I would've liked, so I didn't inlcude them in my "10"...they're extras. The majority of these balloons were cut with a Stampin Up punch. I colored the white Happy Birthday sticker to match...however, I don't like the way it looked. Oh well! The balloons with the numbers were stamped with Stampin Up ink, then embossed in white with Lizi's stamps.

I really liked this pink champagne bubble paper and thought the banner dies would be a great use of some of the scraps of paper. I also used the Happy Birthday die from the kit for the sentiment. I just didn't like the way the banners looked. Again, you live and learn--or in this case, CRAFT and learn! LOL

 So these were the first 10 +2 cards that I made and revealed in my YouTube video! I have also made 10 more cards for a total of 22 cards with this kit (possibly 1-2 more in the works, we'll have to see!) So please check back and be sure to check the Love From Lizi Facebook page and Blog page to see the rest of my February cards!
