Mama Likes The Roses, Memory Lane & Gwenifer

Hi all! I have a few hybrid cards made using digital kits created by Two Peas' new digital designer - Jo Hanna to share with you.

I used the super cute Mama Likes The Roses kit for my first card. I adore the fun color combination in this kit. I layered the banner, heart pins and butterfly on the stripe paper before I printed it out. I then cut an extra set and layered them on top with rolled up glue dots for dimension. Victorian velvet is ther perfect fit with the pink/purple-ish pink in this kit, so I used it to dye my seam binding and for stamping the sentiment.

The second card was made using papers, alphas and elements from the adorable Memory Lane kit. I love the cute chubby birds and the long stem flowers in this kit. I added real stitches to the sentiment banner since they came with faux stitching.

I used the elegant Gwenifer for my last card. I love the distress-y, mono tones in this gorgeous kit. I went a little shabby with this card (too much?). I layered a few elements from the kit on all the papers before I printed them out. The clock, flower and text heart are also from the kit. The paper edges are inked with tea dye, vintage photo, walnut stain and a little tattered rose.

That's all I have for today. Don't forget to check out all of Jo Hanna's new digital kits here!
