Some Kinda Wonderful

With the start of a new year, we also launched a NEW Seasonal Expressions, with all new products! A first must have was coordinating stamp set and dies called: Some Kinda Wonderful - Cardmaking. 
 This combo set is represented by the sweet turtle. I created this two cards, each a little different, using NEW Hello Lovely patterned paper packet. I die cut the turtle, then stamped her with Memento Black ink. I used my Shin Han alcohol markers to colour her in.

On the top card I added a part of a zip strip for the sentiment and some faceted White Gems. I also added a thin strip of Sea Glass Glitter Paper, along with drawing lines with my Black Journaling pen.
The cardstock mats are Glacier and I added a Scalloped Punched edge Whisper border to the top card. On the second card, I stamped a sentiment from the set and punched a zip strip from a retired paper pack. I added Grey faceted gems to the second card and used a different combination of Shin Han markers to colour the sweet turtle. Both cards are on Colonial White card bases.

All supplies are Close to My Heart, unless noted.

  1. Great cards. I love that little turtle. Each time I see or use this paper, I think of vintage wallpaper. It's beautiful paper.

  2. How darling! I love the little turtle - how did I miss seeing him in the new Expressions catalog?! Your choice of papers is wonderful with this little guy, too. Excellent cards!

  3. I love this Turtle - but never thought about pairing him with the Hello Lovely papers - this is fab.
