K & Co. to the Rescue

You all know how much I love K & Co. accents, right?  I collect so many of their die cuts and stickers because they're so beautiful.  They really help me jazz up a card in no time.  These two cards were made as a set, which I gave as a gift to my stepmom for Christmas.


The vintage-look die cuts came from a K & Co. pack, the name of which escapes me.  I added a couple of light orange gems, half of a punched flower, and a bit of burlap.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Think Big Favorites #16.


The dimensional bird sticker was added to an ivory scrap to frame it better, and then added (what else?) pearls because I love them so!  All papers are by Stampin' Up!  The greeting below is from IBS's Happy Occasion Sentiments.  There was an exclamation point on the end of the stamp's phrase, but I'm not keen on using those on my cards.  It feels like I'm shouting at the recipient.  So, I just trimmed it off.  I won't miss it.  ;-)


I'm so glad you dropped by today.  :-D

They do make a beautiful and quick card. I always love to see how you use them. I don't find them in any of our local shops. Beautiful colors in these cards!

Some more really pretty things here Colleen. Great accent pieces and details as usual. I need to get more stuff - you always make me want more ribbons, paper, and bling. Hugz!

Your first card made me think of Art deco and the 20's of last century. You captured that nostalgic feeling so well. Your second card is also a beauty. What you wrote about the exclamation point made laugh. I got the picture; I know what you mean. These PTI sentiments are beautiful; I had to add them to my wishlist :)
