Studio Calico Park Ave Reveal!

It's the 27th of the month and that means reveal day at Studio Calico!!!   The new release is available to subscribers for presale right now and will be available to everyone at midnight!  I'm so ready to show you my cards from the main card kit Park Ave and a couple of the new stamp sets!    Here's my first card using just the main card kit.  This set has a bunch of builder stamps that allow you to create a custom cityscape.  I stamped a cityscape in bold, bright colors and layered it over a shaker sunset.  

Inside the shaker, I blended the same orange and yellow that I used to stamp 2 of the buildings and I added coordinating sequins.  You know me, can't resist a sequin or a shaker!

This second card uses the window stamps to create a custom background border pattern.  Love how it looks in white on black!  I added a few hand cut paper flags for color:)  So easy!

My next card uses the Banana Valentines stamp set!  How cute is that monkey stamp?  I used a bit of the paper from the Dots and Stripes pad to create a foreground for my monkeys.  To create a body for the monkeys, I just stamped the head upside down.  Isn't that sentiment adorable?

My last card uses the stamps from the Celebrate Animals stamp/die set!   I used just the banner letters to create a fun typographic background.  The b/w letters were the perfect background for my colorful shaker!  The diamond paper is from the main card kit (love it).  

Here's a closer look at the sequins in the shaker...

Before I go, I just wanted to say a little thank you and goodbye to Studio Calico!  I decided not to reapply for another term.  I've taken on some new responsibilities at work and there are just not enough hours in the day for me:)  I consider myself beyond LUCKY to have been a part of the Studio Calico experience.  From the folks down at HQ (especially April and Samantha) to the kit/paper/stamp designers and the awesome CT members, you could not have asked for more talented and kind people!  On or off the team, I will always be looking forward to what comes next at Studio Calico:) 

I hope you check out the entire release over at Studio Calico!  And stop in to the gallery to see all the wonderful creations the Creative Team have put together!
