12 Kits Of Occasions April 2019 - For The Graduate

Hello friends.  It's the last day of the month, so that means it's time for the 12 Kits of Occasions post, and this month Kara is our hostess who put together a FABULOUS kit with everything you could ever want to make GRADUATION cards!


Look at ALL the wonderful papers, images, & die cuts Kara included in her kit!!  I have never had so much fun making graduation cards before...everything in this kit was just so bright and FUN!  Where I live, the school colors are orange & black, so trust me when I say I've made every kind of imaginable grad card you can make with those 2 colors, so this kit really was a breath of fresh air for me!!  I didn't want to make my post super long, so I only took photos of the card fronts, but I even used supplies Kara included to finish all my card insides too...they are done and ready to go!  Thank you, thank you Kara!!

Kara included a little pkg of Sprinkles from Lucy's Cards, so I HAD to make a shaker card!  I used temporary adhesive on the "2019" in case I don't use the card this year and need to change it to 2020 or 2021.


I loved this gold polka dotted paper Kara included and thought it made a great background for the Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Grace The Graduate.  I colored Grace with a few Copics and used WOS on her cap and gown, so she really sparkles!!  The shimmery gold strip and Congratulations die cut were also a part of the kit.


This card practically made itself as Kara already had the sentiment embossed in gold on the red cardstock panel!  I just added a few strips of DSP from the kit, along with the tassel Kara made, and one of the graduation caps that I colored with my Copics.  A few Lucy's Jewels finished off this fun card!


And how about a Kindergarten Graduation card?!!  I have a 4 year old granddaughter who will love this card in a couple years!


And of course I had to make a spinner card with this fabulous Art Impressions image Kara included!  I'm pretending she's a teacher who's spinning for joy that school's out for the Summer!  I colored her with Copics and then added the DSP to the front and ink blended through the oval for the inside and then added the Congrats die cut inside.  Wish you could see her spin...she's a hoot!!


And last but not least, another card using a couple of the die cut silhouette's that Kara included in the kit, along with some DSP and the gold "Celebrate" die cut.


Here they are all together and not a single orange and black card in sight...YAY!!!  This truly was a FUN kit to play with and I feel so good about having a supply of graduation cards done and ready to use!  You can check out what all the rest of the DT came up with using this same kit and also see a list of all the supplies Kara included right HERE.

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

  1. Marcia! What a treat to see your amazing cards! What a great idea to use the congratulations circle around a shaker! So smart, too, to use temp adhesive on those numbers. Grace looks so graceful in her white, especially with the gold accents! I love how you tied the tassel and added those colorful gems on your tassel/hassle card, and what perfect colors on your critters for a kindergarten graduate - they look like they came right out of the crayon box! What a fantastic card for a teacher! I'm sure that is the feeling of every teacher at the end of the year - lol! Those white silhouettes are so striking on the black background on your fabulous design! I couldn't be more excited to see these, Marcia, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the kit!

  4. You went right to town with Kara's fun kit Marcia.... All your cards are fabulous! I love the design on the shaker card. Now why didn't I think to use the circle as a shaker. I love it paired with the silhouette and using temporary adhesive is genius!! I didn't use any of the numbers because I won't have any grads in the next few years but your idea is awesome!! Your spinner card is so fun and yes, she is a hoot! My daughter in-love lives for the last day of school and having her summers off. I think I'll make my card up and send it to her. ;0) The graduating animals is so, so cute!! You did Kara's kit proud my friend!

  9. Amazing designs, Marcia! I love them all but your spinner card has to be the winner of the day! So clever-any teacher would really appreciate this. Your first card with the silhouette and the shaker looks wonderful. And Gracie done in white and gold is so classy. The Lawn Fawn critters make such an adorable card for your granddaughter. I'm sure she will love it!
