September 12 Kits of Occasions

Photo by Kara …thanks!

 Welcome to the:
12 Kits Of Occasions 
September Kit

Look at all the goodies Kim: CupcakesCardsandKim sent us!
 Pretty don’t you think!
This month we have a special GD djkardkreations. So... be sure to go to the Blog and see all the other creations.

For the card above I used the papers and ribbon that Kim sent but added my Lil Inkers Witch and Cover Up Die 

On the card below one of the spiders lost a few parts of his leg when I pulled it from the paper. Creepy right! 
Well, it's a Halloween card so I thought perfect!

 Kim this was such a fun kit!  Thank you so much! I could have made a ton more cards , but thought I would wait and see what everyone else makes first….. 
This last card was my first one that I made and it was a piece of cake to make. Love this die! I added a bit of glossy accent to my witch.
Keeping it short so you can see the rest of the cards. 
Please head on over to the 12 Kits  Blog to see the rest of the cards and a list of all the supplies.

Welcome back Cathy!

Thanks for stopping by

12 Kits Blog


  1. Love the colors Marybeth! These are all just fabulous, what a great kit!!

  2. Oh my that chevron background is soooo fun in Halloween papers! I love your cards! So fun looking at everyone's creations! :)

  3. You even make Halloween look bright and happy, Marybeth! Your cards are all so impeccable, as usual! (Well, except for that one spider leg you pulled off and ate!) I am loving how you let purples dominate throughout; it's delish with all that orange and black! Hugs, Darnell

  4. I thought I would check out your blog for the 12 Kits (which is new to me) which came to me via Darnell. Wow it all looks great.

  5. Nice job this month, Marybeth! I love the last card. The town scene looks great on the purple patterned paper, and I love the witch in the moon. I love the layout of the second card, the tilted paper and the stitched frames give it that perfect extra touch :)

  6. beautiful cards! Love how your set of cards really uses the purple as the dominant color!! Great fun and dynamic!

  7. That L'il Inkers witch card is a-MA-zing, Marybeth!!!!! The chevron background is so great with these Pebbles papers! Love how you added the purple dotted one just at the top. NEVER thought to use the sequins on my bingo card, I love how that looks! And your witch flying over the Haunted Hill is she's breezing by a glowing moon. See you can even make Halloween elegant and unspooky ;)!!

  8. These are all so fabulous. I love the witch against that big lavender moon. Super way to use that chevron plates die, too. Your candy bingo card is so cute with the sequins, and your spiders with missing legs are just perfect. I think my favorite thing might just be that little witch on the white circle. she is so cute.

  9. OK...that's it!!
    My next Lil' Inkers order will have to have that witch die...
    I can't stand it anymore and knew I would regret not getting it when Laura released!!
    Love them all Marybeth...
    such fun spookiness...
    that graveyard scene with a purple sky...
    awesome!! :)

  10. Just pinned your first card with the description as my favorite card from this month's 12 Kits...LOVE IT! All that patterned paper layered within the chevron die. Such a great the witch and the moon to go with it. I also love the cute witch within the sketched circle and the neat way you trimmed your Halloween Hill. Great job this month Marybeth!

  11. Oh, I instantly fell in love with your first card. Awesome use of the patterned papers. And I could kick myself for not ordering that witch die--so cool! Every one of your cards is just amazing--I love all the purples! How fun that you have a 'bingo' with sequins. Love the candy paper too--so great with the orange & lavender. And your scene with a purple background and the witch is just perfect!

  12. Amazing Marybeth, just amazing! I love them all, really love them all. I love that sweet little witchy poo flying over the graveyard, so fun. But what I really love is how you tied purple into all your cards, favorite color maybe??? And I love how you used Lil Inkers too, just amazing. You hit this kit out of the park in my opinion...Love them all.

  13. Marybeth I'm trying so hard to pick a favorite and it's impossible. I love them all. Some of my favorite parts are how you used the Lil' Inkers Cover Up die, the sequins bingo, the missing legs on the spider, and the witch in the moon. Hmm...maybe the last is my favorite...just something about its simplicity that I love.

  14. Amazing!!
    I was blown away by all your cards!
    Love how you incorporate all the different elements and come up with so many inspiring cards!
    The chevron die, bingo/candy sheet with the sequins and white (!!!)
    ghostly bats, I mean How Scary Is That??!!
    The creepy little spider missing a leg layered on a candy background. ( love the contrast 'creepy/sweet')
    And I can soooo imagine why this last card is so great. This die is awesome and I love how you've combined it with a dotted background, makes it 'stylish'.
    After all it is a 'she' witch....
    Bye and thanks for all the inspiration!


    ps. Such a pity we don't celebrate Halloween over here in the Netherlands! But maybe I can make one for my little sister in the States! :-) Her children would absolutely love Halloween cards!

  15. This looks like a delightful kit of spooky goodies! Your cards are adoreable with all those bright Halloweeny colors! All those angled papers create such fun movement. Fun for some lucky little one!

  16. Love the purple polka dot background for your graveyard - fun cards Marybeth!

  17. I've always loved the purple, black and orange combination. All of these are fantastic, and make me wish I had some reason to make a few more Halloween cards!

  18. You guys are killing me! I want back in NOW!!! Wow Marybeth - you got me with the showstopper silhouette witch on that amazing patchwork background - I'm smitten. I need to go back and stare some more. SWOON!

  19. Such a fun Halloween assortment! The colors are so rich and perfect, and I love all the fun elements on each of them. Great work. ;-)

  20. Marybeth whenever I see your 12 Kits posts I think what a great idea. I love your first card with the Lil' Inkers die, I think I need to bite the bullet and get it. The gems on the bingo card is perfect and the little which flying over the moon. Great job with your kit!

  21. Marybeth, these cards are great. Love that witch in the moon.
    The chevron paper is awesome. Great card there too!. The last one is my favorite! So CAS. Love all the purple!

  22. You always do such a fantastic job with the kit, and I am always so jealous of you girls adding the awesome Lil' Inkers goodies to your creations! Love the colorful use of the papers with the chevron pattern on the first one. The skewed panel and little bats are so fun on your second card--love the row of gems on the Bingo card, too. And how perfect is the silhouette of the witch on the moon with the Haunted Hill die cut. Lots of great ideas this month, Marybeth!

  23. I like what you have done with everything she sent you but I really love your brightly colored chevron background - perfect for the fun witch!

  24. Wow! You've been busy making Halloween cards! So colorful with great design! Love every one of them!
