12 Kits of Occasions - Here Comes The Sun

It's the last day of the month! Time for the 12 Kits of Occasions! The 12 Kits is a group of friends who all love to papercraft. Every month one of us takes a turn at supplying a kit to the rest of the group. The hostess with the mostest this month is Sharron from On Papillon Wings blog. She put together this beautiful kit for us with pretty papers, stamped and die cut images, twine sequins and gems! Our theme this month is "Here Comes the Sun" - and yes! I was walking on sunshine creating with this wonderful kit! The colors came together beautifully and make me think of rainbow sherbet! YUM!!

One of my favorite parts of being a member of this group is all the new products I get to try.  I've been introduced to some of my now favorite brands through some of these amazing kits.   There is no "tricky" ingredient this time - everything was a pleasure to work with.  I switched a few things up - particularly the die cut words and butterfly - I wanted them to "pop" more so I colored them black with a Sharpie Marker.  
Some of the items were stamped on watercolor paper - The Hula Girl (OK so that's what I'm calling her!  LOL!) and the yummy drinks.  I colored them up with Zig Clean Color Real Brushes (watercolors).  All the other images were stamped on card stock and colored with Copic Markers. 

The only big addition to the kit was lots of die cuts from Pretty Pink Posh - I added Stitched Borders for edges and landscape;  and used the Decorative Tag 1 and Window Frames for my focal points.  

OK.. here goes!!!  Count em!  YEP SIX!!

Jeanne, I know I repeat myself every single month, BUT NOONE does layering as wonderfully as you do, my friend! You've created a true taste of Summer with these sunny cards.

Wow, Jeanne. I think you must have used every single thing. I love them all--they are all so happy, bright and cute. It is kind of gloomy here today, and your post is like a burst of sunshine.

Sharron said...

Oh, Jeanne! You have definitely worked your magic with the kit! I LOVE every one of your creations!! Your coloring is awesome and no one combines elements quite like you. I think the black die cuts worked great. I even colored one of mine too. Thank you so much for making all these cards. And since I have access to these supplies, I can now CASE to my hearts content!

I knew you would do an extraordinary job with the bright summery colors of Sharron's kit, Jeanne, and you did not disappoint! I love them all!! Hugs, Darnell

Bobby said...

Oh my goodness,Jeanne. Your cards are all so wonderful and well put together. The layouts are perfect for all the elements you had to work with.

Lindsey said...

Okay, I officially want to CASE every last one of these!!! Jeanne, they are all my favorite! Love how you left one card with uncolored flower...so unexpected, but it works beautifully.

The Paper Parade said...

Oh my, you've outdone yourself! As I was scrolling I was thinking, wow, look at that, that's my favorite, no wait, the next one is...man they are out of this world! I just love that pineapple card, it is so fun and festive, the shaker card where you used the white flowers is just stunning, sophisticated, love it! And I love how you made the hula girl card look like it was a picture taken of her, and folding the doily in half to be a tablecloth on the drink card? You are so smart!

Tracey McNeely said...

Jeanne 6 fabulous cards! I always get excited to see your post because I know that you love to use up every piece of your kit that you can and you do it brilliantly every time! Love how you coloured your different elements, the perfect cocktails, your shaker and the multicoloured sky with the fence. All so perfectly you!
