12 Kits of Christmas Guest!

I was SO excited when the 12 Kits of Christmas ladies asked me to be a guest with them this month! Jeanne Jachna was the maker of the kit, and she happened to have an extra one that she sent to ME!  Did I ever hit the jackpot month to be the guest.  Jeanne sent out the most FABULOUS box of crafty things!  I have enough to make at least 20 more cards and tags!


I started with this lovely Tartan Plaid paper from Basic Grey's "Jovial" Collection and was immediately obsessed!  Ended up using it on each of my 3 cards!


Oh yes, and that VELVET ribbon!  That snuck up on another card today!  Loved this little Deer Trio die cut.  The stamped sentiments from Serendipity Stamps are amazing!  I loved how this turned into a more masculine card.  I always need one to give our nephew at Christmas.  He's a senior at the Rochester Institute of Technology so it's always money for him.  I would never even think of trying to pick out a gift LOL!


My next card featured my FIRST ever card with a seam binding bow!  Always been too scared to try, but then Melissa Phillips featured how she ties and glues hers on a Make It Monday video, and now I might be hooked!  This card was a bit difficult to photograph.  I did quite a bit of glittering up that little snowy sled image and it's hard to see.


I used a mix of Martha Stewart's Clear Coarse Glitter, Stickles, a Sakura glaze pen on the wooden part of the sled, and a Sakura Stardust pen for the parts that would be metal.


The last featured an amazing ornament die cut from Serendipity Stamps!  Jeanne included SO many wonderful little gems and embellishments.  I parted with a few for this one.  I had to force myself to take them out of their sweet little vellum envelopes.  Everything was so PRETTY just sitting there in the box!  I didn't feel like I should be allowed to touch it, hee!

There is a little blog candy up for grabs on the hop this month!  One commenter from one of the 12 Kits posts will be randomly-selected to receive the ornament stamp and die set from Serendipity Stamps.  So be sure to leave comments along the way!

Thanks SO much to Renee, Jeanne, and ALL of the ladies for letting me join in the fun this month!  I can't wait to see the projects created from Jeanne's Super-Sized kit :)   Here are the links...

So fun to have you as part of the group. Jeanne has really spoiled you--trust me--the kits are not all so large that they need to be sent in a box! You made such lovely cards today--I particularly loved the way you gussied up that sled. Welcome, and I look forward to more crafty fun with you in the coming year.

Beautiful cards, Kelly! I'm so glad you got to join us this month and look forward to having you in our little group next year. Not all kits are quite so impressive though (Jeanne really spoils us!) so don't think you need to get started today making your kit for next year-lol! LOVE what you did with the deer and your sled card is just glittery awesome. Your ornament card with the lace & velvet--and my favorite plaid--is perfect.

Kim said...

Kelly, welcome to the group! Your cards are just so beautiful and very classy! I love that snowflake embossed paper on your plaid card and the little touch of bling, so perfect! Your sled card is my favorite...your coloring of it makes is look so rustic and the sparkle on the snow, just beautiful. Wonderful cards...just wonderful!

Kelly, welcome to madness of this Kit Club! LOL! This month was so overwhelming for me - you have done such an amazing job and made it all look so simple and beautiful at the same time. I love everything.

And all of your WMS release creations are equally as gorgeous.

Christina said...

What a treat to have you join the team! You did an amazing job with that plaid paper. I love how the deer silhouette looks against it. I saved the pretty sled image for inspiration on coloring it, and you've definitely provided it! Love the added glitter and your gorgeous bow. The ornament die looks amazing with the black cardstock behind it, too. Amazing job with the kit, Kelly!
