Studio Calico Blue Note Cards - Post 1 (and some news)

It's time to check out Studio Calico's newest kits - Blue Note!! They are GORGEOUS.
For subscribers they are available NOW, but for everyone else, check back at midnight EST (or tomorrow). Then the links to the kits in my post will be live. 
The card kit has some super fun stamps in, and the digital kits are especially fab - I used them a LOT and went Silhouette crazy!
So today I thought I'd share some Card Kit only cards, and a couple of cards created with the cool digital files and my Silhouette.
So first, 2 cards made with just the Card Kit. Love these sweet candles...
I stamped them in Hero Arts inks (see supplies at the end of the post) and added some glitter.
And this one…
I created an acetate pocket using some packaging from the kit then added some of the white stars and LOTS of Calico Shine Mister Huey's.
Cute little stars...
And then 2 Silhouette cards…
Here I used my new favourite product - Double Sided Adhesive for the Silhouette. It's awesome. I was able to create these letter stickers using a stamp from the Card Kit Digital Stamp Set and the Joy Cut Files. And it's so super thin it's almost invisible. LOVE.
I used 5 colours of Doodlebug Sugar Coating here - this is my favourite glitter. Super fine and yummy colours.
For this one, I used digital stamps from the Card Kit Digital Stamp Set and created some stencils using Silhouette Software… such fun. I love the Neon Pink Mister Huey's. :) 
I cut another snowflake from Double-Sided Adhesive and added more lovely Doodlebug glitter. :)
That's it for today.

********My News********

Sadly and for a number of reasons, I have decided to step down from the Studio Calico team next year. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank SC for having me this year - it's been a blast. I am sure you can tell how much I have enjoyed the kits judging by the amount of cards I have made. :)
Anyway - more to come from these kits very soon.
Bye for now.

That's sad news but not entirely unexpected given your growing family. Thanks for being a great inspiration to me - I always come back to your SC card galleries for inspiration when my kit finally makes it to my side of the world (I'm in NZ) many weeks after release date! Your simple but stunning card designs will be missed at SC.

I will definitely miss seeing your beautiful cards at SC. I adore the ones you made this month!

Gorgeous cards, Lucy! I have some of the Silhouette adhesive paper - I feel very encouraged to try it now :)

You will be sorely missed at SC, but needs must.

I have happily happened to wander by your site! Love your cards. In fact, I love the acetate pocket card so much, I think it just may be my Christmas card for next year! Thanks so much for sharing your creations!
