Studio Calico - January Block Party Kits Revealed!

Yes, about time I brought to you my January Studio Calico kit release projects.  Better late than never.  My projects were made using the Block Party kits, Wildberry add on and Pioneer Drive add on.   I was on a roll this month and cranked out 9 projects with ease.  So since there are so many... I'll leave you with a full shot of each project, for detail photos look here.  Here I go...
This card is my Block Party card kit only card. It features a few grouped greetings to let someone know you are thinking of them. 
I just had to utilize this fun pocket from the Block Party card kit. And the sticker sheet from the Pioneer Drive add on made a perfect match! 
Inserted into the pocket is a festive birthday tag made to coordinate.
Here's a festive New Year card! Made using elements from both the Block Party card kit and Pioneer Drive add on.  I just love these polka dot Thickers and I couldn't be more happy to put them to good use. I went for a neutral and metallic color combo here, by incorporating glittered brads and a gold stamped sentiment. Seemed fitting for the occasion.
The inspiration piece for this card... that small floral tab beneath the grouping of elements (it's one of the stickers from the Pioneer Drive add on). I just love how these bright colors pop against all that lovely white space. Oh, and that washi from the card kit is awesome!
It's quite amazing what one can achieve using a single tiny stamp image. This little triangle piece is from the Pioneer Drive add on stamp set. I stamped a number of colorful rows and then topped the card off with a few sticker elements.
A pocket full of love! Here's a loving card that I made with my hubby in mind. Using a grey grid bag from the Pioneer Drive add on and elements from the Wildberry Court add on to create a masculine themed love card, perfect for Valentine's day.
Clean and simple is this one layer card. Using the Block Party card kit stamp set... I stamped a few sentiment boxes in a trio of fun colors. Then finished the card off with a number of perfectly placed embellishments from the Wildberry Court add on (after inking some of them up using the coordinating ink pads of course).
Here's a pretty little card, suitable for either a wedding or Valentine's day. The focus of the card is the ampersand. I am so in love with this image! I stamped it three times using melon, brown and gold inks. It's such a pretty color combo. Then finished the card off with a strip of pattern paper and a flower. All elements are from the Wildberry Court add on.

Arrows, arrows and more arrows. I inked a few Wildberry Court add on arrows using an assortment of ink pads. Simply pressed each one into the ink pads, let them dry and then attached. Finished it off with a simple sentiment and a scalloped edge, elements from the Pioneer Drive add on.

There you have it! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
