Hey, crafty friends! It’s Heather today! How excited did you get when you found out we re-released the Field Notes Kit? This kit sold out quickly the first time and we have had so many requests to bring it back – and so we did for a limited time! This kit is also a great gift idea.. even just as a gift for yourself! *wink!* I have a few projects to share with you today that we are revisiting from the original release of the kit.
Don’t forget that the Harvest Sale is also happening in the TE webstore:

Today, I am revisiting two projects created with the Field Notes Kit. The first one is from me and my project features watercoloring a flower image from the kit using Karin Brushmarkers. The second project is from Taylor showing how to put together a clever card kit using the Field Notes Kit. Maybe you missed seeing the videos for these projects before or maybe revisiting them will re-inspire you to try out the ideas that we shared!
First up is the watercolored card featuring one of the floral images from the Sketchbook Floral stamp set. Watch the video below to see how this card came together from start to finish:
In the video, I share how I stamped and embossed the images onto watercolor paper and added color with Karin Brushmarkers using a wet on wet watercolor technique.
After coloring the main image, I added a little distressing and texture using the Rough Draft Background stamp and splattering onto the colored image with color from the Plum Brushmarker and Opaque White Copic Ink. I die cut the floral piece with a Stitched Circle Stacklets die and added it to a Toffee cardstock background stamped with the Rough Draft Background in Sugar Cube ink.
Check out the list below for the supplies that I used on this card:
Taylor created the cutest card kit to gift to a friend using the Field Notes Kit! Isn’t this a great gift idea for the upcoming holiday season? Watch the video below to see how Taylor put this card kit together:
In the video, Taylor shares all of the elements included in her card kit: main images stamped in Oreo ink using the Sketchbook Florals and Field Notes stamp sets, card bases stamped with the Rough Draft Background stamp, envelopes, envelope seals, card embellishments, and even postage!
Taylor packaged up the card kit in one of our Clear Card Boxes and added a belly band that she created with the Noteworthystamp set and Noteworthy Belly Band die collection. Packing up the card kit like this and adding the bely band detail really gives this gift a polished look.
All of the supplies that you need to create these cute card kits are listed below:
