12 Kits of Occasions - April 2017

Hello friends.  I'm delighted to be Guest Designing for the 12 Kits of Occasions this month, and I have to tell you this was one FUN kit!!  Sharron Gregory is the hostess this month and put together a FABULOUS kit! 

I'm a little picture heavy as I just couldn't seem to stop making cards with this kit!  So sit back with your favorite cuppa and let me show you what I've created!


This card is probably my favorite...mostly because I love that cat!  She was already embossed in gold and I just colored her with some of my Zigs.


I was in a polka dot mood here (can ya tell?!!) and colored the little girl and boy and their umbrella with my Copics and then used a white gel pen to add the polka dots.


Used a mini brick stencil for a fun little background for this adorable little pup!


I simply added a bit of stenciling to the rust colored card stock and a few enamel dots, and the rest of the card was all part of the kit.


Couldn't resist adding a couple pompoms for these sweet little bunny tails!


Isn't this the cutest little image?!  Colored with my Copics and Zigs and also added a bit of WOS to the flower and some of the green sequins included in the kit.



Had to show a close up of this one so you could see the really pretty tulle that Sharron included in the kit.  Also added some stenciling to the background using PTI's Modern Background Stencils and the frame dies are from Gina Marie Designs.


A pretty simple card as the DSP did most of the work!  I just added an Ocean Tides card base and then WOS'd the leaves, added the oval cut sentiment, and some thick white baker's twine.


Another really simple card because the DSP is so pretty...love the gradient shades of green!  The hugs die cut was in a rust color, but I wanted it in black, so I just black heat embossed it.  I also added a few Rainstones for a bit of extra interest.


My last card uses the "hello friend!" sentiment that was already stamped on the Simply Chartreuse cs, and I simply added some of the birds that I colored with my Copics, one of the gems included in the kit, and also one of the die cut bird houses that was part of the kit. 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and make sure you stop by the rest of the Design Team's sites to check out what they did with this same kit...you won't be disappointed!!  You can check out the blog HERE.
