12 Kits of Holidays for February



Time for another round of the 12 Kits of Holidays!  We are back to Christmas this month and our hostess is the lovely RENEE LYNCH!  Just look at this beautiful kit that she sent us!



Lovely traditional colors of red and green but in such beautiful shades...and with a bit of chocolate brown and a Western theme thrown in to the mix with TONS of Waltzingmouse Stamps images!  The papers this month are by Echo Park.

My first card uses that lovely deer trio from Memory Box!


I love this doily paper from the collection.  It reminded me of snowflakes!  And ohhh that green grosgrain ribbon is so pretty, too!


I stamped a matching doily image from Waltzingmouse Stamps Dainty Doilies-Large Set onto the woodgrain paper.  I used Versamark ink and then heat embossed it with white powder.   This sentiment from WMS Ornate Ornaments seemed to fit the scene!

This die cut tree caught my eye as soon as I opened Renee's envelope...as did this sweet mini bow die cut from L'il Inkers Designs!  I have the "small" size and now I must have the mini.  And even more dies to add to my wishlist...these tiny detailed Christmas stars!  I think that they are also from Memory Box.


I thought that the scroll pattern in the tree went perfectly with this sentiment from WMS Compliments of the Season 2...with those fancy g's!


I placed the tree over some rustic white cardstock and then covered the whole thing with Martha Stewart's Clear Coarse glitter, and added a plaid bow that coordinated with the background.

I finished this card last night while watching one of my favorite shows...Nashville!  So appropriate since Renee is from Tennessee!


Love this sentiment from Yonder Star!  Renee is able to use the coordinating cut files that Claire has available at the WMS store, so she can cut the sentiment and make these awesome little mat backgrounds.  I have been in a doily mood ever since the WMS blog party.  I used a real doily on this one paired with that awesome woodgrain patterned paper and some new denim paper of my own.  I just LOVE these little dew drop baubles that Renee sent...especially the glittery ones!

Another month with a kit overflowing!  There are SO many fun things left to use after our little party is over!  I can hardly wait to see the girls' Christmas creations with Renee's kit.  Come along and visit these blogs with me...

Beautiful cards Kelly - I love the additions to the kit you made to make these all your own. You pulled in a lot of outdoor elements like the woodgrain embossing, and the deer on the woodgrain with the doily background. I really like that denim too - so country!

Kelly they are all wonderful! I love the way you stamped the doily on the wood to match the other paper. Simply brilliant and it looks gorgeous! Love the three stars together too. So happy you are with the 12 kits.

Renee said...

The addition of that doily is perfect with that paper and that embossing folder is perfect for this set...
I think I must needs it! :)
And how you paired the denim on the bottom card and made this a rootin tootin Country Christmas...

Sharron said...

Your really worked magic with this kit, Kelly! I love your embossed doily with the deer & the simple 'peace' tag! The tree looks gorgeous on white & all glittery--and topped with that sweet bow! But I think my favorite is the last one. It's the perfect country Christmas card--love the denim!!

Joyce said...

These are all gorgeous. I love how you used those deer with that stamped doily, and your red and white glittered tree is just stunning. I'm so glad I saved that tree.

Tracey McNeely said...

Kelly beautiful cards, I love the combination of that doily with the deer on your first card. The demin and stars on your last card says country all over it!

Kim Heggins said...

Kelly, these are so amazing! I love your combination of supplies, so fun and so creative. My favorite of your cards is your second one. What you did to that tree is stunning and that glitter behind it, amazing. And if that was not enough, you went and added the plaid bow and that star on top, a work of art!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Just fantastic makes from this kit, Kelly! Thanks so much for these inspirational cards for my faves!!

Christina said...

Oh my goodness, the deer silhouettes in front of the doily--incredible! I love how you mixed those two papers with the wood planks. And then the green ribbon for contrast. So pretty. The glittered tree is so beautiful, and I love the look of the gems in the center of the stars. Your last card is just plain fun--so perfectly country! The denim paper is a great addition!
