Welcome to the 12 Kits ! Jeanne: AKeptLife Is our host this month. 
As usual, Jeanne sent out a gorgeous kit! I have so many beautiful leftovers and cant wait to make more. 
Thank you!

Kara took this photo and she was so kind as to send
 it to me over and over again!

This is what was in the kit that Jeanne sent us! 
Fun , fun, and more beautiful fun!

The only thing I did on this card was frame it , color it in
 and add a bit of liquid pearl. I have walked by this stamp so many times, once it was in my cart too.  It needs to come home with
 me the next time I see him. 
I was kinda surprised I colored it , but glad I did.

I loved this ribbon as it tied so nicely!

Look at that beautiful velvet red ribbon!

I had so much fun making my cards and cant wait to see what the rest of the girls have made. I am posting early as I will be gone few days. Should be back in time to see what everyone else has made. Cathy Weber who is an original member of the 12 kits is back to share some cards with us this month! 
Welcome back Cathy!
Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear what you think.

  1. gorgeous cards Marybeth!! My favorite is the Santa card with that bow and cluster of bling and things!! I love the reindeer you colored!! I cored him too and am in love with him, but in the end he never made it onto a card! He will though:)

  2. You're not the only one to have walked past that cute little guy 100 times and want him but have yet to bring him home...
    I think I will the next time I see him though! :)
    What fabulous cards...
    all them are gorgeous Marybeth...
    love that velvet bow...
    I'm redoing minenow... I couldn't get it right and now I'm jealous of yours!
    And I'm SO getting some more of that canvas ribbon...
    it makes the best bows! :)
    What a wonderful selection of beauties...
    and where did you find candy canes in June?!! :)

  3. OH, I love your cards!!!
    Each one of them!
    They're totally gorgeous and the details are FAB!
    Thanks for all the inspiration too.
    Enjoy your days off.


  4. These are all wonderful! You have such a way of making everything look rich and elegant!

  5. Oh My GOSH, Marybeth! These are so GORGEOUS! ALL of them! Can't believe it was a kit! Also can't believe you are getting a jump start on Christmas!!!

  6. Well, Marybeth--you sure put together an amazing collection of cards. I love them all! Especially that first one--I don't know why I was too lazy to color that reindeer--yours looks amazing. And, I love how you did the treat box--and you even had candy canes! Your Santa's List card is just adorable, and everything on it is just perfectly placed.

  7. My thoughts...beautiful each and every creation!! I love your cone and the fabulous knotted ribbon handle. Candy canes in June!?! where on earth did you find them!!

  8. You did lot of neat things that I didn't think of Marybeth! I love the last one with the velvet ribbon threaded through the fancy die cut - and your reindeer with all the bling! The clever way you added the buttons as centers of flowers and patterns keeps catching my eye too! You really made everything shine here!

  9. Marybeth each and every card you made is just gorgeous! I will be casing the ones I still can. I knew you would use the ribbon beautifully!! Happy Sunday.

  10. Hi Marybeth,
    Oh my such beautiful cards! I love the little reindeer! So sweet! And the gorgeous ribbons and bows! And your cone treat with the candy canes! Adorable! What a lovely post my dear!

  11. Wow....I am really at a lose of what to say, they are all just stunning!
    Your coloring on that reindeer is perfect and so festive. Then on your final card, that beautiful red velvet ribbon is so classy and add so much elegance to your card. Your second to last card is my favorite...I love that sweet little santa with that Christmas list behind and that amazing bow, just beautiful.

  12. What beauty oozing out of your projects this month my dear! I just love the Santa card, that layering is gorgeous! Your treat cone turned out beautifully and the last card is so rich with that velvet ribbon and beautiful bow :)

  13. wow, you were busy , and a lovely serie of cards.
    great designs and i like Santa the most.
    hugs to you.

  14. I absolutely love all you have done...your Santa list card is my that image and the brown paper bag. I also love that Dec 25th tag with the neat die cut frame. I wish I had put that combination together. You sure did make some stand-out cards...loved them. I have really missed this group!

  15. You did such an amazing job with the kit, Marybeth! Love all your projects. The Santa card with beautifully layered elements and bow is really special. Your last card is so elegant with the rich colors and gorgeous velvet ribbon. And I LOVE your reindeer! He's perfect in color and with pearl accents!

  16. Gorgeous Christmas cards, Marybeth! And so many other beautiful creations since my last visit! Love your fab work! Have a great day! Hugs

  17. Such amazing Christmas creations, Marybeth! I wouldn't be able to choose a favourite as they are all so fabulous!!

    Sorry I haven't visited for a while, but holidays and life matters have stopped me from creating/blogging until now xx

  18. Each of these is so unique and lovely, Marybeth! That red velvet ribbon is gorgeous!

  19. Love your cards Marybeth! So great to be done with some christmas cards already (-;

  20. Hot over there?! It's so refreshing to look at all your delicious 12 Kits creations, Marybeth!! You rocked all the goodies that Jeanne sent! (I think I would have been staring at the Kit for days and days thinking, "WHERE do I start!") But you are such a pro and you've whipped them into works of art!!

  21. Adore the liquid pearls on your reindeer and the scene you created on your shining star card. The candy can holder is too cute, and you're right...those ribbons are gorgeous. These are all beautiful! I just love seeing how you all use these kits.

  22. Your cards are fantastic, Marybeth! Your first one looks just like a beautiful postcard, but the added fun of the liquid pearls. I especially love the little girl hanging the stars on the tree, and your treat holder is adorable! I still have the notebook page die cut and envelope, so I'll be CASEing your idea with it. Love the gems and stick pen in the corner.

  23. I am so in love with that deer card I could kiss it, hee! I am so glad that I saved mine! LOVE the liquid pearl accents and your beautiful coloring. The Dec 25th card is so elegant and bold with the velvet ribbon threaded through the label! Love your Santa collage and the sweet candy cane holder with the be-buttoned poinsettia! I just called Kim "you" on her blog post by accident but now I have it all straight...awesome cards Marybeth!! :)

  24. I'm just not sure what to say about the deer card! Your coloring is just amazing and I like the addition of the liquid pearls. If I were to pick a second card to oogle over it's the last one with the velvet ribbon in a bow......just elegance!!!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love it when you do!
