12 Kits for May!



It's the last day of the month, and that means we get to share the projects we made with one of the 12 Kits...this month's was created by Marybeth Lopez!  It was such a beautiful one with soft colors and both elegant and whimsical images for the themes...thank you, thinking of you, and get well soon.


Once again I have so many lovely things left over, but I did finish 4 items this month. First up is a get well card with an adorable little image from L'il Inker Designs...


I decided to make a round card because I don't make them often enough and I love how they look.  Created a little scene, even using some left over paper for the "grass" from Tracey's kit in March!  Marybeth sent us sequins which was very exciting for me since I only have some plain white ones :)


I was way heavy-handed on my coloring as my Copic instructor Colleen would have said!  I actually made a mistake in that I went for a mulicolored umbrella look and then ended up covering my original blue coloring with all red, eek!  I fussy cut the image because my coloring was bleeding...um, not a good look for a get well card :/!

More fun with Copics on this adorable scene called "Butterfly Garden" from Serendipity Stamps...


SO much fun to color!  I couldn't resist pairing it with Waltzingmouse Stamps new Country Labels 4 set.  Love this sentiment and thought it went along with the theme this month.  The mini heart is from the WMS Earth Angel set!


I glittered up the whole scene with Stickles and then added this gorgeous blue gem from Marybeth to the center of the biggest flower.  My girls were oohing and aahing over them.  I got two in my kit and wonder of wonders...I used them BOTH!

A card a bit out of my style with some fun die cuts...


Loved the "get well" die cut from Paper Smooches.


Such a sweet sentiment from Lockhart Stamp Company, and the bowl fit right in the swoop!!  Filled my bowl with some love :)

And last but not least a tag...


I had cut some flowers from another floral image from Serendipity Stamps called "Sun Garden" to frame the sentiment on my first card, and decided it was getting too busy.  So I made this pretty one the star of my tag, along with another sparkling gem...and a sweet bluebird die cut to match!  The picket fence die cut is from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Vintage Garden Seed Packet set.

Wasn't this kit so amazing?!  Thanks SO much Marybeth for spoiling us!  I also wanted to mention that she even sent us a sentiment stamp set from Serendipity Stamps.  I meant to use it on my last tag but somehow papers got shuffled and then this little pennant caught my eye.  So sorry I didn't feature it, that was so generous of you, Marybeth!

Kelly, you are one amazing card maker! Your sweet little guy is just about the cutest kid ever! So sweet and your sequin rain is simply amazing and so stinking creative. I am in love with your soup card and the way you made the get well fit in so perfectly. Love those adorable little red hearts, such a sweet little touch. Kelly, all of your cards are simply amazing, love them all.

Tracey McNeely said...

Kelly Ii love all your colouring! The shading on the first card is amazing. Cutting the circle for the 'g' of your get well is brilliant! and that sweet tag? Love.

Sharron said...

Every one is fabulous, Kelly! Adore you sweet tag and precious round card! That little guy looks adorable--love his bright red umbrella. And your flowers with all the glitter and sparkles are so festive. I think my favorite is that fabulous card with the soup images. Brilliant idea to make the cut out for the 'g' and the bowl resting in the sentiment curve!

Jeanne J said...

Oh lots of goodness here! Love the sparkle and where to begin??? the round card - so cute!! the second with the inlaid label - gorgeous, the clever get well hat reminds me of a recipe card with the cut out around the "G" and smart way to use the sentiment around the soup bowl. Wonderful cards and tag you really out did yourself here Kelly!

Kelly you blew me away this month! There is so much I love :) I love the glittery centers and glittery sheen of the flower card, I love how you have the cut out under the g of the get well card, that really makes it pop. The tag looks so pretty with the flower sticking off of it, and my fav? The sweet circle card! I love that you cut the sentiment out of the cloud and those sequin raindrops? Brilliant!

Amy Kolling said...

OMG! That under the weather card is out of this world fantastic! Just look at the shading and wonderful use of the pattern papers from the kit! Love this!!!!

Jill Norwood said...

Wow! These are all so wonderful! I love that sentiment on the soup one! Might have to check that company out. Thanks for making my heart smile! :)

Liz Vickerman said...

absolutely adore the soup card - the colors are fabulous together! glad I clicked on your comment on my blog to find yours, you're an inspiration!

Christina said...

Your cards have some of my favorite details this month! The sequins for raindrops are brilliant (I sense a CASE coming on), and I would never have known you had some missteps in your coloring. I'm going to stop by on my summer drive from MA to Indiana so you can give me some coloring lessons! LOL! The glitter accents on the flowers look amazing, I adore the unique design of your soup card, and that little tag is the sweetest. Awesome projects this month, Kelly!

Beautiful cards! It's a small thing, but I love the get well card and how you popped out a circular shape for the "g". Awesome designs!
