Two Cards from the Front Porch Kit

Two more of my projects created from the "Time to..." Front Porch Kit. 

The first card is a horizontal bi-fold card using several of the patterned papers, ribbon and embroidery floss.  The yellow flower is a handmade crocheted piece included in the kit. I topped it with a mini accordion rosette made from book pages in the kit.  I also did some machine stitching on this card. 

The second card is more masculine.  For the background I inked a Tim Holtz grungy embossing folder before placing the white cardstock inside and embossing.  This transfers the ink to the design and embosses all in one step!  The J is from the mistable chipboard alpha sticker set misted with glimmer mist.  The corner flourish and cogs are cardstock diecuts from the kit.  I used Glossy Accents on the flourish to make it look like a wrought iron sign post and the cog wheels were painted, inked and heat-embossed with various embossing powders to look like rusty metal and grungy steel.

It's "time to" order your kit - you can do so on the website here or call The Little Blue House while there are still available.  There's a limited supply, so when they are gone, they are gone!  

We are expecting the online gallery of all the fabulous Design Team projects to be up and running tomorrow (Monday, Aug. 29), so be sure to visit the site to view all the awesome and inspiring creations.
