Kanban Kwikies

I managed to get in a quick couple of cards using an old Kanban kit 'SO FEMININE/SO MACHO'.  This has been a great kit, with tons of toppers and cardstock all ready to make incredibly quick cards. 
So for todays 'quick fix' for this crafty junkie, I managed to do these after I'd cleaned the clubhouse, which was amazingly clean considering we'd had a disco last night...
This first card was made using the Kanban topper sheet 'RETRO CLASSICS', I used one topper from a selection of 8 (you can see what great value this kit has been!), I used a kraft card blank and my first mat is a piece of light blue cardstock from my stash... after a quick rub around with a Tim Holtz distress ink pad I mounted it to the base card.  The black/silver spotted scalloped circle was cut out using a punch (Kanban CS - 'GRAPHITE POLKA DOT') and has had a little bit of blue wool tied around it before it was mounted to the first mat.  The topper was adhered with foam pads and a couple of gems added to the top corner.  Very quick!

... I try to add something to the inside of the card, to make it a little special (or a least, not quite so boring), here we have another scalloped circle and a piece of light blue CS.
Next ...

I used a scalloped card blank and mounted a piece of patterned CS to it (Kanban again, 'CHEQUERED FLAG'), to this I added a small black mat with my topper off-set on top of it.  The sentiment was matted onto a piece of black CS and adhered down.  All corner have been 'chomped', that is rounded off.  The inside was then decorated...


Card Number Three has more of a teenage vibe going on.  I used three toppers from the sheet 'EXTREME SPORTS' (two picture, one sentiment).  The patterned mat ('GRUNGE SPLATTERS') has a narrow piece of black CS adhered to it, and then this was mounted onto a 'skinny' card blank.  One picture topper was mounted onto some silver mirri CS and then adhered to the front, whilst the other was adhered to the inside.  The sentiment on the front of the card was also mounted onto silver mirri CS, both the picture and the sentiment were 'popped' using foam pads.

So now I've had my 'fix' for the day, I'd better get back to work.  Quiz and bingo tonight! Busy, busy, busy...
