12 Kits of Occasions May 2020 - April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello friends.  It's the end of another month and we're still in quarantine here in Michigan, but on a positive note, Spring/Summer has arrived here in the Midwest and today the 12 Kits team is going to celebrate all those wonderful and colorful Springtime flowers.


I'm hostessing this month and I sent the DT a bunch of Spring time flower images to color, along with a few pieces of DSP and some die cuts.  Here's what I made with my kit:


I love this image (Just Because) from Pinkfresh Studios...I water colored it to look like Cherry Blossoms and then added it to a layer that I blended Salty Ocean Distress Ink on and then ran through my Big Shot with the Subtle (SU!) embossing folder.  My sentiment is from SSS's Sketched Flowers stamp set and I added a few clear sequins to finish.


This sweet little gal is from Stampingbella (Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley) and I Copic colored her and then fussy cut her out and added her to a card layered with DSP (SU!) and Lovely Lilac cardstock.  The sentiment is from a little freebie stamp set from Gina K.  Lily of the Valley are one of my favorite Springtime flowers (even though they are extremely invasive little flowers!)...I just LOVE their scent!!  :0)


Here's another Stampingbella image (Bundle Girl with a SNOWDROP) and she is one of my favorite images right now!  I Copic colored her and added some ancient PTI DSP for the background.  Super simple but love the way it turned out!!


And how can you not love bright yellow daffodils in the Springtime?!!  After a long Winter I just LOVE seeing these happy flowers come up!!  This image is from Penny Black (Daffodil Devotion) and I once again colored it with my Copics and then fussy cut it out before pop dotting it to a PTI piece of polka dotted dsp (Harvest Gold) along with a couple die cut Penny Black frames (Framed).  A little bit of crochet thread and some clear sequins finished off this bright and sunny card.


This super simple card uses an image from Mandy's Flowers (SSS) and just the tulips were lightly water colored with some Berry Sorbet ink (PTI) and then matted to some older SU! dsp.  I also used The Greetery's Crimped Frame Die on the image layer and added a piece of coral bakers twine to add another small pop of color.


My last card uses PTI's Tulip Time for the die cut tulips, and I added them to Pinkfresh Studio's Ornate Oval Frame.  The background dsp is also from SU! and the sentiment is another from SSS's Sketched Flowers.


And here they are all together...lots of color and ready to celebrate Spring!!  I can't wait to see what the rest of my teammates did with this kit, and you can check it out too right HERE.       

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

  2. Adorable, adorable cards Marcia! Your kit was totally delightful and full of spring hope. The Bundle Snowdrops girl is so darling and I can see why she's a favorite of yours. Super cute and easy to color. Lily of the Valley Tiny Townie is another of my favorites and yours is so pretty on that lovely flowery paper. I wish I still had mine now. Oh well, I'll just ogle yours for a while. All your cards are fabulous! Thanks for a super fun kit!!

  14. Oh these are all so gorgeous!! I love the girl holding the lily of the valley and everyone makes me smile. We too are still in a sort of lockdown, though the rules have been relaxed but so many people go about like there is no threat out there... Makes me mad but also very scared to venture out... Enjoy the good weather my friend

I love your beautiful cards in particular the sweet girl holding the lily of the valley... its so soft and feminine with the scallop die cut. The tulips in orange on orange papers is stunning and I love the daffodils on the yellow print... all beautiful happy cards with bright bold colors that are candy for my eyes!
