Havana Cards and the Card Sketch with Rae

Happy Saturday, craft people!

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards I made with the August card kit, and, I used the first Tres Jolie card sketch designed by owner Kim Heard. Look at how beautiful it is:

I do love to make cards, but I usually get carried away with the bulkiness of embellishments, so I usually just stick them in a box or a gift bag, and these ones are no exception! 🙂 Here are two I made based on the sketch:

Both cards were made using the same design. I started with two layers and added some distressing and chalk ink from my stash. The green is a Tsukinedo Dew Drop ink pad in Ocean Oasis, and the Pink is the Prima Old Rose one. I used both chalk inks on the tickets, banners, and the green on the Kaisercraft wood doilies as well.

I added some a doily and some floral die cuts that I cut from the Prima Havana papers. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard coins (“Smile” on this card, and “Cherish” on the other one.) from my stash. I wanted them to look like pennies so I added some copper wax paste and the green chalk inkl.

To finish off the cards, I added some black and white splatters of India ink.

Here’s the other card- same design, just different papers, and slightly different elements.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. Details here in the Facebook community.

We’d love it if you used the kits to join the challenges, but if you aren’t already a subscriber, you can still play along with your own supplies. However, consider subscribing! http://tresjoliekits.com/services/

We do have a couple of August card kits still available here!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Card sketch

Hey everyone, it’s Kim. Today I am sharing the cards I made using the card kit and the sketch. I have to say, I’m not the best with cards, so it was good to have a sketch to follow. I’m not sure how that works though. I can create a sketch, but can’t create a card from scratch. Oh well, moving on.

Have you seen our card kit this month? It is amazing!! It features papers from Prima, a die and lots of fun embellishments. Take a look:

There are still  few kits available. You can do a single purchase here or you can subscribe here.

Here is the card sketch for the challenge this month. Make sure you join in on the fun. Post your entry for the card challenge in our Facebook Cafe.

You don’t have to be a kit subscriber to enter, just please don’t enter using products from another kit club.

Here are my takes on the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here is that pretty die and my flower cluster. I used the banner tag in the cluster for my sentiment instead of on the bottom.

For my center image on this card, I used the die cut twice and added the wood doily as the main piece. Then I added smaller flowers to accent it.

I love the bakers twine in the kit. The colors are perfect for this bright summery card kit. Plus there is plenty of card stock to make several cards or tags.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Memory Lane Card Set- June 2018 Card Kit By Heather Thompson

Hi again, Heather here sharing another set from the June Card Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. This set I decided to go with a set of cards. I usually make two sets, a girl can never have enough cards. You never know when that special occasion will pop up and you need to rummage for that one special card.

I made a video of how these came together.

Here a few close-ups of the cards. I love the beautiful blooms that came in the kit. Perfect for this set.

I used the frame from the main kit and heat embossed for that special shimmery look.

The stitched look adds a little extra texture to the cards.

Welcome to Tres Jolie Kit Club

Hi everyone, welcome to Tres Jolie. We are a new monthly kit club and we are so excited to have you joining us. Each month we will have 3 new kits featuring the best we can find in the crafting community.

So let me tell you a bit about our kits and what makes them different from the other kit clubs.

First is our scrapbook kit, it will be contain anywhere from 10-12 sheets of shabby chic, vintage romantic style patterned papers. These papers are going to be from the top companies, both local and international. Add to that embellishments selected to perfectly compliment those papers. That will include flowers, chipboard, metal, resin, lace or whatever else we can find. Doesn’t that all sound yummy?

Next up we have our cards, tags and more kit. That’s right a kit specifically for that make cards and tags. This kit will alternate between cardstock or tags as the base. It will always include patterned paper and embellishments to build upon that base. What are Cards and tags without flowers, bling, stamps and ink. Who knows, we may even slip in a die (think Julie Nutting dolls) one month. What do you say card makers?

Last, but definitely not least is the mixed media kit. It’s kinda like mixed media with a project. Don’t you hate getting a bunch of mixed media and nothing to try it out on? Not with this kit. It comes with the mediums and a project to use them on. That’s right, you get to get in there and get your hands dirty the minute you finish opening this kit.

The other thing that’s different about our kit club is our dedication to our subscribers. There will be “perks” that as a subscriber only you will be privy too. Sometimes, there may even be a little something extra in your kit.

Our kits will begin shipping in May. For all the details on how to subscribe and shipping please click on the subscribe tab at the top of the page. Also visit the FAQ page for any other questions. If you still can’t find the answer, please email me at Kim@tresjoliekits.com

I know this has been a very wordy post, so I will leave you with a preview of our first kit.
