12 Kits of Occasions {December Kit}

 
Welcome to the December Edition of the 12 Kits of Holidays and it's my birthday!!  Every single month we get goodies from the hostess for the month. So many new things arrive..... makes it so fun!!!  We have added a  Facebook page so please go join our following over on the blog and LIKE us on Facebook! 
 
****I have to say that this group is such a fabulous group of ladies........caring, thoughtful, creative.  I really could go on.  So it is very hard but I'm sad to say that I have decided to step down.  I have been on this group for 2 years once I finish this post!  It has been so much FUN and I've enjoyed playing with new stamps, embellishments, papers, etc. that I may not have otherwise used.  So with this being my last post......the incredible Jeanne Jachna is rejoining the group and is so excited!!!****
 
This month our kit was sent out by Jessica Davis.  Jessica sent us so many goodies and she SPOILED us!!!  Our package was FILLED with goodies....die cuts, STAMPS, pattern papers.  Wow!  Thank you so much Jessica!

For my first card, I've used the adorable bird diecuts and branch from Lawn Fawn.  With a little Copic coloring, the birds turned out so cute and paired them up with a stamped sentiment and twine!
 
Peace  
 
My second card is probably my favorite.  Don't we always have a favorite?  I've used the poinsettia diecuts that were in the kit and layered them onto a woodgrain embossed panel from the kit.  To make my leaves curl up a bit, I've just pressed on them with a rounded pen cap until I liked how they looked!
 
Be Merry  
 
My last card uses a fabulous word diecut layered over some Copic colored trees from Paper Smooches!  I'm sending this over to the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge this week because it's Anything Goes!

Oh Amy...we will really miss you! You always make such beautiful cards, one's where I slap my head and wonder why I didn't think of that! This month was no exception...love the cute way you layered the Christmas die cut over the perfectly colored trees, and those sweet little birds with the subtle texturing on the white background. Why don's I ever think to round corners? See, you did it to me again. Happy New Year!

Amy, I love them all this month! I love how you curled up the leaves on the poinsettia... they look so much more realistic that way! And it looks great on the woodgrain :) The bird card is so my favorite, though, so peaceful, so gorgeous! The coloring on the trees with the cute Christmas word on the 3rd is fabby too :)

Katie Gehring said...

Happy Belated Birthday, Amy! Love these cards so, so, much. Your coloring on the Christmas tree card is just divine! Thanks for linking up to the SPARKS challenge this week! :)

Darnell J Knauss said...

Popping back to congratulate you on the shout out from Paper Smooches for your adorable Christmas tree card, Amy!! Hugs, Darnell

Christina said...

I am going to miss your creations with the kits so much, Amy!! I am always incredibly inspired by your CAS and elegant designs with the supplies, and you've certainly gone out on a high note with this month's kit. Those little birds on a branch are the cutest! I love all of the white space like a snowy backdrop. Your poinsettia is gorgeous against the woodgrain texture, and your simple treatment of the die cut word in front of the trees is darling. Thank you for two wonderful years of inspiration as a part of the 12 Kits group!

Tracey McNeely said...

Amy my sister, you even got around commenting before me. I am so behind. What a beautiful collection of cards, I love that you coloured the bird inn grey (watch for me CASEing that, the pretty poinsettia on the woodgrain background and the way you want the word in the trees--LOVE it all! No this is far from the end for you and I--we will be together soon again. ;)
