June Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!  Can you believe that it's JUNE already?  Only 8.5 days of school left for me-summer's coming!
Bethany from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge has chosen such fun, summery kits to inspire us this month: the May kits from Scraptastic Club.
 
I based my kit on the After the Storm main and add-on kits.  Great blue and green color scheme, plus some really fun embellies.  Here's my kit:
 
 
A mix of very old (2006!) and very new (2013) papers, plus a couple of my counterfeited papers.  I loved the bokeh papers in the inspiration kits, so I made my own mini versions using this tutorial from Lawn Fawn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfrSC6rER2A.  For my butterfly paper, I simply punched 20 butterflies from notebook patterned paper and used a glue stick to adhere them to polka dotted patterned paper.  Cute. :)
 
 
And the fun stuff-the embellies.  Nothing counterfeited exactly, more just "inspired by".  I DIYed 2 things: one paper (did this while I was pulling my embellies, thus the pic of it with them) and the ombre letter stickers.
I really liked the hello text paper from the inspiration kit, and I wanted to try my own.  I used a sentiment stamp from Lawn Fawn and clear ink to repeatedly stamp on a scrap of smooth green cardstock.  I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  I think it came out cute and will be perfect for a card.
I also knew that I could easily get the ombre look by using a trio of Copic markers on some white alpha stickers.  I did a few as examples, but I will color them as needed when I start my projects.
 
Well, there it is!  Thank you so much for popping by!  The rest of your stops on the blog hop are from the DT.  Your next stop is Andrea!
