I was thrilled to get a message from Lindsey Larsen of Occasional Crafting
asking if I would like to be a guest designer for this month's
If you're not familiar with this challenge, one member of the team
puts together a kit for each of the other members and they make cards
using the items in the kit.
I've been enjoying seeing the team's creations for years now --
and it was very fun to be included in this month's kit!
Wait until you see the kit that Lindsey put together!
It felt like it was custom made for me with its beautiful floral stamped images,
pretty patterned papers and embellishments.
She even included an adorable bike stamp and some super cute pineapples!
I feel like singing "These are a few of my favourite things" along
with my post... ;)
Here are most of the cards that I made with the kit --
if you stop by tomorrow, you'll see one more. ;)
This gorgeous floral image was heat embossed on Bristol Board.
Now, I remember hearing how great Bristol Board was with Zig Clean Colour
Real Brush markers.... but I had just returned from our trip to Denver &
two trips to Hobby Lobby to stock up on watercolour paper at the time
and decided to not worry about it, as I had a lot of paper.
Well, I think I need to pick up some Bristol Board -- it worked amazing with my Zigs!
And it's so white!
I'm so thankful that Lindsey included these in the kit.
The sentiment was also in the kit, but stamped in black on white, so
I restamped it on black and heat embossed it in white (it's from Altenew's Adore You.)
This HUGS diecut was just calling out to be made into a shaker card.
Lindsey included pretty coloured beads in the kit, to which I added a few of my own clear ones.
This was made with items from the kit.
I stamped the "you are" using a Reverse Confetti stamp.
I love this sweet bike!
Here I added the "birthday wishes" using a PTI stamp.
This card was very quick to create -- I can't wait to give ti to someone.
It's so pretty with the gold!
This last one is one of my favourites!
The diecut is from wood paper and the "love you" diecuts are shimmery.
Thanks again for including me in this month's
12 Kits of Occasions, Lindsey!
I really enjoyed playing with your beautiful kit!
Thanks for looking!
