We are thrilled to present Betsy Veldman's new Make It Market Kit! Just wait until you see all the details!
If you want a close up view of all the things shared today, be sure to join Betsy tomorrow night at 7pm ET for a special Make It Market Kit Periscope presentation!
She'll be showing off a few of her projects up close and personal as well as answer your questions about the products! Even if you can't join us live, the presentation will be available to watch online for 24 hours after posting. We hope to see you there tomorrow night! And now for more about the kit!
The next Make It Market Kit is entitled "Market Street". This entire kit revolves around a gorgeous market cart, both traditional flat and an incredibly detailed three-dimensional version! Both carts have inserts with different toppers that can be used, including things for several seasons and occasions. Apples for fall or even teacher, pumpkins for the fall or Thanksgiving, tulips for spring or Easter, and more! Not to mention you can experiment with other images in your stash to see what can fit in the cart. Use the dimensional cart as a treat container, something to hold small gifts, table decor and whatever else you dream up! Set the scene for your market cart creations with some amazing city street stencils. There's also some basic stripes that can be used for the awning on the dimensional cart, or as a background. All of the pieces of this kit come together to form a versatile, timeless collection that you will be excited to own.
The Market Street Kit contains:
- Market Street stamp set & labels
- Market Street A2 paper collection (20 sheets)
- Market Street stencil collection (set of 4)
- Market Street: Basics die collection
- Market Street: Cart Basics die collection
- Market Street: Cart Toppers die collection
Just wait until you see all of these bits and pieces put together! The magic it creates will just blow your mind! Here is a video walk through that Betsy has put together for you…
And now a closer look at the individual products!
The stamps included in this kit are just amazing and offer a multitude of uses. You can create the basic cart and then add a variety of toppers to it, perfect for all seasons and occasions! The sentiments included will coordinate with the label die that is included with the kit, so you have all sorts of layering possibilities there as well. Some measurements for you:
- The assembled cart measures about 3" x 4".
- The toppers average around 2-1/2" x 1".
Here you can see just how amazing these stamps work together. The colors and details you can add with stamps alone is fabulous. It's like magic when the various layers come together to make such quaintly illustrations!
As noted above, the sentiment stamps tuck nicely onto the label die, as shown here. These little labels are great for layering but can slo be used for tags and so much more!
The main die collection gives you a few of the essentials, such as the main 3D cart body and one of the sides, wheel, label and a few details to coordinate with images from the stamp set for layering. Some measurements:
- assembled 3D cart without canopy (2” x 2-1/2”)
- assembled 3D flower cart with canopy (2” x 4-1/2”)
- label (2-1/4” x 1”)
- small tulip cluster (1/2” x 1-1/8”)
- small flower bloom (5/8” x 1/2”)
- small daisy (5/8” x 1/2”)
Here is a great video where Betsy shows you step by step how to assemble the amazing flower cart!
Hasn't Betsy thought of every detail? These carts are going to be popping up everywhere for sure!
The scalloped box that serves as the carts center base is easy to assemble and sandwich between two cart sides. It is roomy enough to hold a few special treats or even a small plant as shown here!
You can even use the center of the cart alone without the sides to create small baskets, just as Betsy has done here. Aren't they just the sweetest!
This collection provides you with the flat cart to be used on card fronts as well as a few additional pieces for the 3D cart construction.
- flat flower cart (3” x 2-1/2”)
- pull out (1-3/8" x 1-1/8")
Here you can see how the dies were used to cut out one of the pre-printed carts included in the patterned paper collection, as well as the topper.
The pull out detail makes for so much versatility because you can add it to any of the toppers for interactive elements, or even use it alone to create a sentiment sign.
The variety of cart toppers is one of the things that makes this kit and and this die collection includes dies for them to make it super easy to add them to any project, no fussy cutting needed! It also includes the awning for the flat cart and the store front.
- flat flower cart with optional canopy (3” x 4”)
- four different flower cart inserts (appx 2-1/2” x 1” ea)
One of the true treasures of this kit are the variety of toppers. Once again, Betsy has thought of everything!!! There is something for every season and every celebration included, meaning you can use this year round for a huge variety of purposes.
The awning die is the perfect thing to top off your 3D cart after construction.
But you can also use it on cards, like Betsy did here! Just genius!
The stencil collection for this kit is just beyond fabulous. You will be amazed by the professional results you can get with these and how much they can add to a project! A few measurements for you…
- The set of 3 "street scene" building stencils each measure 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
- The striped stencil measures 6-1/2" x 6-1/2".
These street scene building stencils are SO detailed and so easy to use, you truly feel like an artist one you have completed assembling the layers. It's like having endless amounts of patterned paper to add your cart to since you can create your own in any color scheme you like! I'm also envisioning it being paired up with other previously released sets!
The third and final layer that adds the details to the paneling is especially eye catching when done in embossing paste! That texture looks so realistic, you just want to reach out and touch it!
The striped stencil is also super versatile. It is intended to be sued to add stripes to the awning of the cart. But the generous 6" coverage it provides allows you to use it for backgrounds as well! This stencil could quickly become a favorite on every project. You could even tuen it 90-degrees for a second layer to create gingham patterns!
The stencils are definitely a personal favorite in the kit and there are so many possibilities with them.
Betsy has only selected the absolute BEST for this kit, so she selected a high quality linen paper for her bright and colorful patterned paper collection to be printed on!
Besides the festive patterns, the pad includes dozens of pre-printed images that you can use with the coordinating dies. These are wonderful for quick and easy creations!
