12 Kits Of Occasions January 2018 - Snow Day

Hello friends.  I was thrilled to be asked by Jeanne Jachna to GD for this months 12 Kits Of Occasions challenge and what a FUN and FABULOUS kit she put together called SNOW DAY!


As you can see from the photo above, this kit was just packed with all kinds of great papers, die cuts, images, & embellishments!  You sure made creating SO easy with this wonderful kit Jeanne!!

Get comfortable as I've got a bit to show you!!  Included in the kit was this wonderful mix of iridescent sequins and a beautiful die cut panel from PTI's Mix & Mat: Snowflakes that just HAD to be made into a shaker card!


I used one of the DSP included in the kit for the background, and then added the rest to make the shaker.  Boy does this one sparkle IRL!!


Of course I had to add some of the embellies that Jeanne included in the kit to make it shine and sparkle even a little bit more!!  :0)


This little guy was just too cute not to color up, and he looked perfect on the MB Alpine Trees die cut.  Because I wanted to use the BRRRRR die cut that was cut from Tropical Teal cs, I made the base of my card Tropical Teal also and embossed the outside frame with an older but favorite Darice snowflake ef.


Jeanne also included this cute little snowflake tag from Poppystamps, and since I still had the Tropical Teal cs out, I traced the tag on it to make a background for the tag.  Colored and added the little fishing bear to the bottom of the tag, and I'm thinking this is going to look mighty cute on a package of goldfish crackers for my 3 year old granddaughter!!  I even added some Glossy Accents to the fish to make it nice and shiny! 


Are you sensing a color theme here??  I figured since I had already used the Tropical Teal on the first three cards/tag, I might as well keep going!!  I created my snow drifts with some torn cs and Smoky Slate ink on the bottom and then lightly blended some Tropical Teal ink on the top half for the sky (along with a bit of water splattering).  I colored up the little brother and sister and igloo with my Copics and then added the sentiment from the ones Jeanne included in the kit.


Totally fell in love with the Snowflake Ring and Classic Ice Skates (MB) and combined the two over a blended and splattered background.  Also added a bunch a Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the Snowflake Ring die cut...boy does it sparkle!!


And one last one using the panel that I water colored and splattered, and then added a strip of DSP with the snowmen.  I also included the die cut Winter at the bottom and a piece of the twine at the top.

I can't wait to see what the DT came up with using this FUN kit, and I'm so glad I have leftovers to use to CASE the gals as I just know I'm going to see ideas that I have to copy!  You can check all the posts from the team right HERE to see what they did with this same kit!

Thank you, thank you Jeanne for such a WONDERFUL kit and for inviting me to play along...I had a FABULOUS time!!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  1. Marcia, you've created some beautiful cards (and tag) here. Love the thoughts that went into each sweet scene. The little bear with the dotted scarf is a favorite. Just perfect touch of brightness with the orange fish! But honestly, all are favorites. Can see your glitter touches perfectly. Hugs, my friend!
