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!

Sympathy and Happy Birthday

I took the insider online class. It was the first time I ever took a card making class. It was nice to see new ways to dress up the inside of the card.
This one is masked and watercolored with pencils . 
I used my favorite sentiment: Big Day - Today from WMS.
 The flower is from Hero Arts, leaves from Papertrey Ink.

Inside of card and below is the little box
 I made to make it pop up

For this one I used my new Lawn Fawn set and some new
 Zig shimmer pens. This little crocodile wobblies if you touch him. I had to put the circle behind it so you could  not see the 
Action Wobble Springs Wobblers 

 Thanks for stoping by and I hope you have a great week!

Make It Monday and Merry Monday

Danielle first MIM : Great Job Danielle!

This is a little busy for me but , I kinda like it!
 I made my own stencil from this little snowflake for the background on the above card. Thanks Jill GreenwoodGirlCards

I used a few removable glue dot so the snowflake will come out easily .
You can use any  kind of tape: just make it less sticky by sticking it on your cloths a few times then it wont stick as much.

I saw some stationary that you could buy with a removable round snowflake: I decided to make my own.This was so fun and easy to make. I added some foam tape and glitter. The snowflake comes out and can be hung on a tree or used as a gift tag.

For some reason I cannot get a decent photograph of  this red card. 

All the products used on these two cards are from Papertrey Ink! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day! 

See if you can make someone smile everyday! :)

Happy Birthday Sharron

Edited to add better photo


This little birthday hop was organized by none other than Joyce
Thank you so much Joyce!

I couldn't make up my mind so we will have both cakes. I think they are both beautiful, elegant, and sweet just like you! 

Sorry this is bad photo, I will try to retake it tomorrow. 
 I had this card made for weeks and never photographed it! 

We are having a mini Birthday Blog Hop for one very sweet friend Sharron: OnPapillionWings.
 If you have not been to her blog you will want to go , because Sharron makes some of the most beautiful cards. Sharron is always leaving such sweet comments. 
I made this card with some of my most favorite stamps and yes I know I use them a lot! I wont keep you so you can see the rest of the cards your friends have made. 

Big Birthday Hugs to you Sharron!

It’s real!
This is a picture of one of my pumpkins from past year.
 I love this color and buy them every year.  Then use them for Christmas. I stack them to make a cold looking snowman that sits on my front porch bench 

I think I should have left the scroll off, one end of this birthday card. It is clashing a bit with the pumpkin vine. The one below seems to flow better without the scroll next to the vine.

Hi, and happy Friday! I am having a bit of trouble with light today.  Fall colors? Yes to me because this is the color
 of pumpkin I buy each year. I buy the orange for carving
 and roasting the seeds. 

Hope you have a blessed weekend!

The stitched leaves and Boo to you were from Simon Says Stamps
stitched leaves from Lawn Fawn
Big Day - Today from Waltzingmouse Stamps…My very favorite sentiment.
