12 Kits of Occasions - Sept. 2020 - Light Houses

Hello friends.  It's the end of another month and time for another 12 Kits of Occasions post.  This month our hostess is the sweet Kim and she chose LIGHTHOUSES as her theme for the month.  Kim sent out a FABULOUS kit that included all the following:


Having grown up in Michigan, I'm very familiar with lighthouses and water, so Kim's kit was a real treat for me and I came up with 5 very simple but FUN cards to share with you today.  Let's get started...


I fell in LOVE with these sweet little Koala Bear images Kim included in the kit from Create A Smile stamp company called All Hands On Deck (this is a new stamp company to me and boy do they have some CUTE stamp sets!).  All the colorful papers Kim included in the kit were so bright and cheery that I just had to make a shaker card!  I colored the image with my Copics and then added a piece of the dsp and some colorful sequins from my stash to create this sweet little card that will more than likely go to my grandson.  The die cut frame is from PTI's Pierced Feature Frames.


My 2nd card uses a medley of the different images Kim sent in her kit and I created a Double Z Fold card to showcase them all.  Here's a look at the card opened up:


Sorry about the lighting on this one...I do ok with flat lay photography, but when I have to stand a card up, my lighting goes bonkers!  Someday I'll figure it out!!  I did use my own anchor die cut (SSS) because it was a little bigger than the one Kim included and I had a bigger space to fill.  I also used a sentiment from one of my Catherine Pooler sets called Vitamin Sea.  


 
Another one of those sweet Koala bears that I colored with Copics and then pop dotted to a small background that I ink blended and stamped a few seagulls from a Gina K set.  LOVE the "yoho" sentiment!!


I loved all the seagulls Kim included too, and this little guy with his kerchief just cracked me up!  I always think of the Disney movie Finding Nemo where the seagulls are always saying "mine, mine, mine!"  Too funny!!  Anyway, used a few strips of the dsp and some enamel dots along with the sentiment and seagull for a pretty CAS card.


My last card is another one of those silly seagulls and I just love his sailors cap perched jauntily on his head.  Used a wonky stitched frame and some more of the polka dotted dsp Kim included to make another CAS and easy card.


And here they are all together!  This was such a fun kit to create with Kim...thank you SOOOO much!!  And I still have leftover pieces so I can CASE my teamies when I see what they did with this same kit...YAY!!  Make sure you check out Kim's post and her Special GD Joyce's post, and all the rest of the DT's posts too right HERE.  You're bound to be enchanted by this last bit of Summer from all of us!!  :0)

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

  14. Wow, Marcia. You really went to town with this kit, and I love everything you made. That card that opens up into a scene is really incredible. I think that is my favorite because it tells a whole story, and I have never seen a card like that. So very clever.
