The 12 Kits of Occasions - Good Fortune

I'm so excited! It's finally here! It's post day for The 12 Kits of Occasions! It was my turn to host and I chose an Asian theme of Good Fortune!

I tried to include a little bit of something to appeal to everyone in the group. Here's a peek at the kit I put together. 
I always worry about what I send the group.. do these things all go together? Will they have fun making? I guess I had to prove to myself that it was all good so I tried to make with as much as I could so I made 8 cards!

I also invited four special guest to play along because crafty friends are the best! Please welcome...

Jeanne! These are fabulous! I really like how you colored some of the die cuts and the embellishment pieces. I didn't even think of that. LOL I really like your take on all the cards. Your Ninjas are so fun. Your coloring is terrific. Wonderful cards! Thanks again for asking me to play along. :) Crafty hugs!

Marybeth said...

Jeanne absolutely no worries with this kit as it was a huge hit ! So fun working with so many new products!
I love our white kimono dress on the navy , such a pretty card! The pink lantern card is also very pretty with the jewels .
Not sure how you were able to cut so many extras with an already packed kit. I think I am going to do some coloring with the rest of the diecuts you sent, today. Thank you so Matcha :)

Well, my nickname for you, Queen Jeanne, is for a reason. Not only was your kit amazing, but what you creatively paper crafted with said kit is ALL frame worthy! Starting with, LOVE your element combos, both designer papers and all the sweet 'Jeanne' touches. Then Ninjas with the 'pow' stars... genius. The Asian colors with the temple and cloudy moon. Both lanterns manage to take center stage on the lucky friend card. Just beautiful. I don't think the kimono could look anything but elegant. Perfect with the navy. And you sweet little doll and her ombre kimono in pink and blue rock! My favorite is the lion/dragons. Love that I saved those. You even added perfectly colored kiddies! I had such fun with this kit. Playing with the takeout box was the first card I made. Love your addition of the red flower to your card. And love too, how you started with the sweet little geisha welcoming all of us to this post. Thank you, my friend for a wonderful kit! Enjoyed every minute creating with it!

Birgit said...

Oh my goodness Jeanne, you of all people should never have worry about creating an amazing kit. This was fabulous and so much fun to work with! All of your cards are delightful. The colors and your coloring is amazing in each one. I didn't realize that was a cloudy moon die but I totally see it in those who've used it that way. I'm so glad I still have lots of supplies to continue to play with after being inspired by all our teamies and your incredibly talented guests. Thanks so much for a fabulous kit Jeanne!

Tracey McNeely said...

Jeanne you sent us the most unique and amazing kit! So many fabulous elements that I didn't ever know existed and I had so much fun playing with it, in fact I don't have a lot left. A few pieces that I wanted to get inspired by the group before making with. As for your cards as usual, the layering it on point, all of your backgrounds are fabulous and your colouring is beautiful. I love them all but I think my favourites are the dragons and the geisha girl at the end. Thank you so much for the amazing Asian inspired kit!

Kim Heggins said...

OH MY....not really sure where to start! Just love everything about your incredible kit! I had so much fun playing with your kit, just loved all the wonderful goodies you put in it. Each one of your cards is a masterpiece! so much beautiful detail and the coloring of all the images are perfection! The dragons are my favorite , just love the wonderful background and what sweet little girl riding on top of one of them, just too darn cute! Thank you again for a simply incredible kit!

Kara Lynne said...

Your kit was absolutely amazing, Jeanne, and all your cards reflect that! I'm in awe of your incredible details like the glow of the moonshine that balances the bright geisha girl on your first card, the layers of design elements on your take out card, and your perfect positioning of those dancing dragons! I feel so privileged to receive this kit as my first month with the team! Thank you!

Christine Kiehl said...

Oh my these cards are amazing! I SO love the Asian arts! I hope to reach your level of card crafting skill someday!

Sharron said...

Goodness, you should never worry that any kit you put together is anything but awesome! This one was such a joy! Everything was so well put together and included things I think many of us have never had a chance to play with before. Your cards are all so fabulous! Loved scrolling through and enjoying your wonderful layering and use of colors! And there's so much inspiration. Luckily I still have many things left!! I wish I had been a little braver about coloring die cuts. Yours look amazing! Your paper doll geisha card is precious with such stunning coloring! Thank you so much for sharing all these fantastic products and your creative talents! It's been a wonderful month!!

Lisa Elton said...

You always send out amazing kits Jeanne, don't you worry one bit about it! This one was a real treat for me because I don't think I've ever made an Asian themed card. You included so many delightful products for us to work with. I adore each and every one of your cards. I wasn't sure how to approach the dragons, but I LOVE what you've done!

Marcia Hill said...

Oh Jeanne...what a delight your kit this month was...I loved every minute of playing with it! Every one of your cards is so bright and FUN and I'm so glad I left a few things to CASE with!! Those little geisha girls were my favorite to play with and I think I just might NEED that stamp set!! And yes you do NEED Lindy's Magical's … my first set (they come in a 5 pack) was the Autumn Leaves set and you will be blown away the 1st time you use them and be totally hooked after that! Such a fun, FUN medium to work with!! Again, thank you so much for such a FABULOUS kit to work with this month...totally loved it all!! Hugs! :0)

wienerhoneymooners said...

WOW...Just WOW! All of your pattern/color combo choices so SPECTACULAR! YOU blow me away with your design skillz and mad color choices. My FAVE would have to be the dragon with the mini munchkin kids. It has everything, color, movement --JUST FABULOUS and fun! The Paper Doll Marci large geisha, that was intimidating,however, you pulled it off with ease.. I shook my head and thought, "at least you should've tried" LOL... Thanks so MUCH for inviting me, it really has lifted me from my funk and hopefully I will get more mojo back.
