12 Kits Of Occasions {April 2014}

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

It's time once again to share our 12 Kits projects with you.
I can't believe April is over already!
We received our beautiful spring kits from Jeanne at the beginning of the month.
Now we get to share with each other {and with you} what we have been working on.
We have 2 guest designers this month, Erin and Nancy!  Make sure to hop on over to the
 12 Kits Blog to see what everyone has made and also have a chance to win a kit for next month.
We'd love to have you join us!
I had so much fun playing around with a different style this month.
Bright colors, layers of paper, floral embellishments.....

I couldn't resist making a shaker with these cute flower sequins!

This one has got to be my favorite. 
Something about the stark black die cuts contrasted by the bright orange and yellow!
The flowers were die cut from different colored cardstock.  I covered each one with Versafine ink and then clear heat embossed them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Wow, made some amazing, outside of the box cards here with the kit! Love the shaker and the first card is perfection! Beautiful work here today!

  2. Kara, these are gorgeous, gorgeous! But your fav is also mine! The dies peeking out from behind the sunny frame is striking! All wonderful!

  3. Kara I can't believe that we basically made the same card with the oval lace and the Lily of the Valley--love the curved bottom. Your cards are all gorgeous, as usual and now I know what to do with my doily! ;)

  4. I agree with you.. that last card with the black die cuts - stunning. I would never have thought to ink them up in a different color - so striking as silhouettes against the wood grain and sunny colors on the sentiment and the sparkly gems.... Your shaker card is so clever - I love the layering too with just a little peek at the pattern paper underneath!

  5. This really is a little different style from you Kara...I love all the layering you have done...I also really like the sequin shaker card...great idea! Looks like you really made the most of Jeanne's kit!

  6. Love all the little subtle touches that you have added to make each card different and unique! Your last card with the black silhouettes and the sunshiny sentiment is amazing! And how sweet to have just hints of patterned paper peeking out from your designs.

  7. These are all so gorgeous!!! I have to say that the second one really stuck out to me. Something about just the tiniest bit of the patterned paper peeking out from behind just amazes me...just brilliant.

  8. AMAZING cards Kara!! Wow did you rock this kit!! Cute new blog look and cute new picture of you ;)

  9. Beautiful collection of cards.

  10. Oh, these are all fabulous, Kara!

  11. Super, super job, Kara! That sweet shaker card is my favorite; I'm gonna have to pin that one. Every card is bright and sensational!! Hugs, Darnell

  12. That mom shaker card is so neat! The last card with the black flower outlines against the beautiful orange/yellow background is beautiful :)
