Hello Folks! Scott here with my unboxing of the Love From Lizi March 2019 Card Kit! If you’d like to follow along with the video post click here: https://youtu.be/c_DtTnzm0OE
Lizi is referring to this as the “Fairy Garden” card kit and, as usual, this is chock-a-block full of all sorts of fun, fanciful, colorful and unique items all curated into another lovely card kit.
We do begin this kit with the standard five sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ card stock in Dark Gray, Navy Blue, a sheet of White super-smooth alcohol-marker card, Cream and a really nice Warm Blue. These are complimented with four sheets of 8.5″ x 5.5″ Specialty Pearlescent Card Stock in Dark Green (with golden pearl), White, Silver, and Gold. Always love Lizi’s Specialty Card Stocks!
From our 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ pattern papers, you can see the “Fairy Garden” theme emerge… lots of butterflies, foliage, and Fairies! These are all single-sided pattern papers with some glitter accents on two of them (#9+#11), and a pearlescent finish on another two (#10+#12). Back to pink this month!! LOL!
And it’s decoupage time again! I love it when Lizi treats us to these! Here you can see we get 8 different sheets of die-cut decoupage designs. These are all glittered up and ready for layering on a card. All of these sheets sport sentiments and some have so many layers that it would be easy to make a couple of cards from a single sheet! LOVE THESE!
There’s a NEW peel off color this month! Mint Moonstone peel offs! Great color and shine with out being completely reflective. AND we get four sheets of stickers! Lots of glitter on these stickers, and they all coordinate perfectly with the pattern papers and decoupage sheets! You may know that I’m not a huge fan of butterflies, but I think those butterfly wreaths are very interesting!
That brings us to the largest stamp set I have ever received in a LFL kit – a 6″ x 8″ stamp set with large foliage stamps and sentiments that coordinate with the Love and Thanks stencil! Looks like that top stamp is those interesting Japanese Lantern plants, and the bottom stamp is a leafy climbing vine. Those are complimented with a dandelion stamp and little dandelion seeds in assorted sizes. Looks like another great opportunity to practice our coloring skills!
That’s all of the goodies in our large zip-lock bag – on to the embellishment bag!!
From the top… left to right… right to left… we get two sheets of foam squares – Lizi most always includes foam squares with her decoupage sheets. Nuvo Sweet Lilac Crystal glossy drops, Five meter length ribbons on a nice cardboard spool – all around 3/8″ wide with glitter or printed accents. Three silver metal ‘wands’ that have an embossed stripe pattern on one side and a smooth mirror finish on the other. Eight buttons in two sizes printed with images that match our pattern papers, and a sample size batch of the Fairy Garden sequin mix – brushed gold, mint green and soft lilac… yum!
Bottom row… left to right… Three mini shaker stickers! Two jar shapes and a circular shape with decorated backgrounds, already filled with silver stars and ready to mount. Very cool! We DO get another stamp in our embellishment bag this month – a nicely sized fairy with a butterfly stamp – just more opportunity to color! Our die this month is this fairy die with detailed cut-outs in her wings, and a batch of holographic shaped and embossed fairy sequins – there’s about three times as many in our packs as I show here.
I did get some add-ons this month as well – sometimes you just can’t resist!
Here we have another large stamp set (4″ x 8″) featuring two more garden clusters – the top cluster appears to be rather daisy-like flowers and the bottom stamp seems to be poppies! It appears I’m going to be coloring a lot this month! This stamp set also features more sentiment options in another font style… Looks like we could reconstruct Luxembourg Gardens with all these foliage stamps this month!
Lizi is introducing new embossing powders this month – some of which were inspired by customers and subscribers requests. Lots of sparkle and holographic dots in some of these powders, along with some new colors! I got all eight pots of the new LFL Embossing Powders.
I went ahead and swatched out all these new colors to give you a better idea of what they look like. The Sparkling Snow is like a clear embossing powder with lots of silver glitter, the Tutu Pink is too, too pink (LOL) with some additional sparkles, the Forest Green and Meadow Green are standard glossy embossing colors in beautiful, very useful colors, and then we get to the “Party” line of embossing powders! The Fairy Dust, Baby Blue, Pastel Purple, and Powder Pink Party powders have lots of shine, lots of glitter and holographic mylar dot sprinkled throughout. I haven’t had a lot of luck with glitter embossing powders, but these four Party powders melted very easily and are really something delightful to behold! Perfectly unique and very well suited to this Fairy Garden Kit.
