My April Counterfeit Kit!


The Counterfeit Kit Challenge is in it's fourth month, and is going strong! The April inspiration kit was by a brand new kit club called Front Porch Kits! "A Little Birdie Told Me" is full of really fun bird papers and embellishments that are perfect for spring! I was really drawn to the color combination of the kit, which contains bright red, teal, chartreuse, yellow, and black. I chose to use brown instead of black, to coordinate with my papers. Some of the patterns I could not even come close to matching, so I attempted to make two of them. This was a really fun experiment, although it can be challenging and time consuming. Stay tuned for a tutorial on how I re-created "Stamp of approval" and "Gerber Daisy"!

Patterned papers: Cosmo Cricket (Early Birder Borders), My Mind's Eye (Jack & Jill "Blissful"), Pink Paislee (Spring Fling "Bird's Nest"), Hand made copy of "Gerber Daisy" by Fancy Pants, Pink Paislee (Spring Fling "Spring Flowers"), Chatterbox "Red Birds", Deja Views (Pack your bags "Baggage Claim"), Hand made copy of "Stamp of Approval" Echo Park using grid paper (October Afternoon "Detours") & brown cardstock, Scrap Within Reach "Carnival Ride" stripes, Cosmo Cricket (Early Bird "Brunch"), Crate (School Spirit "Chemistry"), Bazzill brown, kraft, creme, gold Swiss dot, bright red.

Embellishments: October Afternoon Journaling cards, 3 assorted fabric remnants, chipboard (Lil Davis - Heart Doodles), Stitched felt (Chatterbox - Together), Thickers (Hat Box), transparent pocket block (TTT), chipboard birds (Maya Road), Glitter - metallic teal (Creative Beginnings) & chartreuse (K&Co), sunflower metal slides "Maya Road", various ribbons (teal, chartreuse ruffle, brown crocheted, buttons from stash, small paper flowers (American Crafts, Prima), jute twine, shipping label, soda bottle caps.
