WHEW!  Now onto the projects!  Today I’m sharing a couple cards.  Here’s my first card:

This is a combo of the Main Kit (the stars), City Skyline Fancy Die + Magical Nights Messages.  

I love how the sky turned out…messy but not too messy.  I splattered white paint onto it.  The City Skyline is awesome, love the detail work, don’t you?

Up next is a clean + simple card that is made exclusively with stamps from December’s kit:

Although you can’t really tell by my photo, the sand dunes have been quickly watercolored.  The camel has been stamped with Pumpkin Pie Mid-Tone Shadow ink and die cut.  He’s been popped up on foam dimensionals.  The camel silhouette images have been masked so that I only included what would ‘fit’ into my design.

This type of card would be a great masculine card.  

Before you go, I did want to share a project that I made especially for a Countdown to Creativity post:

Yes, it’s a large contrast to today’s card, isn’t it?  That was the main reason I went super clean + simple for today’s project.
That’s it for me today…I can’t wait to hop around and check out how everyone was inspired.  Next up is the awesome Janette Kausen!

  1. These cards are wonderful. I love the theme of this kit. This month is a complete and awesome surprise. Lots of bang for your buck. Nicely done, thanks for sharing….

  2. Love both of these cards. I wanted all the add ons as usual but had to choose just some. The skyline was one of them. The minarets remind me of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul.

  3. Amy – well that sky is amazing in your first design, then you demonstrate to us crafty followers how to create a simple line card design and finally you used a combination of the two. Can I be in your head for a day some time please. :O)

  4. Lovely cards! I am falling in love with this kit! Can't wait to get it. Thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful week!

  5. Your cards are amazing! I was just at Lydias blog trying to comment but it keeps getting stuck loading. I think something is wrong with her site. You guys are rocking these samples. So beautiful!

  10. This kit is so unique and fun, and I truly adore all your projects! You've showcased such a great range of looks and styles!

  11. Love your cards. I placed an order this morning, but when I get paid I'm coming back to order the rest of the add ons that I couldn't get today!

  12. Oh, these are lovely. I think the duochrome camel one is particularly striking, which surprised me, since this kit just screams bold jewel tones to me. So thank you for thinking outside the box, because that helps me do so as well!

  13. Oh my!!! This kit is magical as your awesome cards!!! They're like a fantastic journey in the awesome Far East!!!

  14. What a gorgeous night sky! That skyline die is amazing!! I was looking for the second piece of the die for the foreground, but then I slowly caught on that it was an optical illusion from the genius design of the die… love it!!
