Even though the stars look gray, they are in our wonderful Silver Foil. The stamp set included in the kit had multiple sentiments to choose from. The following is my stepped-up card I made using the kit contents and a few additional items.

I decided to make a panel card, after seeing a sample on my sister’s-in-law website, Snaps & Snippets. I cut a 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 sheect of Pool Party card stock, and then a 5-1/4 x 4 sheet of Blackberry Bliss card stock and adhered them together. I then trimmed down the card from the kit to measure 5 x 3-3/4. I added a Starburst Blackberry Bliss framelit to one of the kit’s tags. Next I adhered a heart sticker from the kit, along with 2 silver foil punched hearts. Next came my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities to color the Jewel Rhinestones, placing them below the sticker strip from the kit.

It’s so much fun to see what little extras you can do with the monthly kits. But they are invaluable when you simply need a quick card or gift, ready to go in a jiffy. Keep Thinkin’ Inkin’!
