Studio Calico Hello, Hello Reveal

It's the 27th of the month and that means reveal day at Studio Calico!!!   The new release is available to subscribers right now, and will be available to everyone at midnight tonight.  I'm so excited to show you my cards from the main card kit Hello, Hello and the Ciao add-on:)  This card above is only a little sneak since I couldn't get a good pic of it, lol!  I used the digital files from the main card kit to create a Cameo cut file.  More to come on another day:)  

Now let's start off with my Ciao cards!  This set has the cutest animal stamps (as you will see below) and I ended up making 3 cards with it!  You can also get the coordinating dies separately:)  For my first card, I used one of those dies and lots of the patterned papers in the add-on kit.  CAS, but fun!

My next card uses the adorable animal stamps in the set.  I love how the animals look in pastel colors:) 

The sentiment banner was so easy to make with the coordinating die:)    (P.S. The yellow polka paper is from the main card kit)

My last Ciao card has the animals again, but this time they are in a little window cutout.  I just love those little animals!  

Here' s a closer look at each window...

Now for the main kit!  So many yummy things in this kit including some awesome dies:)  The rest of the DT did some amazing stuff with the stamps (you must visit the gallery but I thought I'd show you some fun stuff you can do with the dies (the dies are in the main kit btw).  For my first Hello, Hello card, I die cut 5 frames in paper and felt (yes, I said felt!).  I especially love the felt in the kit!  It's stiffer than the normal stuff which is perfect to use in this card.  

I wanted the frames to look intertwined, so I cut each frame and hid the cuts under the frame next to it.  See how that stiffer felt holds up?  Love how it turned out!  The sentiment was heat embossed on a strip of vellum.  This is a fun way to get in a sentiment without it covering up the main attraction;)

  Now you know I couldn't pass up the chance to make some cute little shakers!  This is so easy to do with the frame die.  Each mini shaker is backed with paper from the kit.  I added coordinating sequins in mint hint, sunny day, and blush crush!  Nothing makes this gal happier than some matching sequins;)

For the sentiment, I used the new friend die from Paper Sushi.  If you loved last  month's happy die, you'll want this one too!  I used heavy glitter paper and the die cut it like a champ.  

That's it for me for today!  I hope you check out the entire release over at Studio Calico!  And stop in to the gallery to see all the goodies the Creative Team have put together!
