Kites, Kites and More Kites!

I just wanted to share with you a few cards I made using Emma from My Creative Time June release. In her last release she had these CUTE kites!!! I wanted to make the cards real simple. I have been loving simple lately!  So I decided these kites were it! I LOVE the saying "Flying by to say..." that I used them on ALL of my cards. But I wanted each card to have a different saying or meaning to it. So I looked thru all of Emma's stamps and found the ones I thought I would use the most. I will list all the stamp sets below. I also wanted them all to be a tad different. Whether it be by color, technique or material I used. I pop dotted most of my kites for dimension. Some I added hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique or added some twine. I paper pieced some of the bows, some I just colored the bows. All are pretty much the same but a tad different. Emma's sentiments can be mixed and matched to fit your personal need! That is why I LOVE them! I am so relieved to have a small stash of cards on hand ~ FINALLY!!!

Sorry for the picture ~ I must have had a smudge mark on my lens! My poor little pink card looks messy!
