1 Hour with Studio Calico Sandlot Card Kit

Hey friends. Finally back to some blogging after a little absence.

I made these cards a couple weeks ago and excited to share them here today. This is another instalment of my 1 hour challenge. Each month when I receive my Studio Calico kit, I challenge myself to create cards within a 1 hour period, using only the supplies of the kit (and any add-on kits). I use any sort of coloring medium that fits my needsΒ (e.g. watercolors, inks, etc), but I really try hard to not reach beyond the contents of the actual kit. I love pushing myself to use up the kit as otherwise I just tend to hoard. And 1 hour is sometimes all I have, so that works well for me. Enough rambling. This is what I came up with this month.

This first card was a quick one, apart from the very tedious process of adhering the tiny sequins, which ate up a ridiculous chunk of my 1 hour! Bold patterned paper made this come together in a snap though.YouDidItI think this one is my favorite of the bunch. This ribbon was one of my favorite items in the kit.ThinkingofYou

I love the combination of black, white and a pop of color. Unfortunately, this didn’t come together quite the way I’d like, but I still wanted to include it in the post to stay true to my 1 hour challenge. I struggled with this card for long enough to nearly run out the clock!Black&White_thanksThis last one came together the quickest of all – about 10 minutes. I love the stamp set from the add-on – building sets are so much fun. This one is super easy to use.BdayFlowersI’m also entering the 1st card into Virginia’s View Pattern Paper challenge.

Ok, that is all for this 1 hour challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great Sunday!
