May 2020 12 Kits of Occasions

This month at the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog, Marcia Hill was our hostess and she sent the most adorable kit entitled “April Showers Bring May Flowers!” She challenged us to make our blogs bloom with life and flowers and COLOR!

First, my eyes went right to this adorable Stampingbella “Bundle Girl with a Snowdrop” and the amazing gingham paper!

I colored her with Zig Clean Color and Tombow markers and added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Hello Friend” set.

I added lots of Stickles and Wink of Stella Stardust pen details, because she reminded me of a sweet little garden fairy! Oh, and some Glossy Accents to her blue galoshes!

Next up is this gorgeous patterned paper with the beautiful tulip bouquet in a Mason jar! It is from a set called “Mandy’s Flowers” by Simon Says Stamp. Again I colored with Zig and Tombow markers. I added a mini paper bow from Mama Elephant, one of the “Simple Little Tags” from Memory Box and a sentiment from WPlus9 Studio.

Last up is this gorgeous silver embossed floral image that Marcia sent. It is called “First Blush” by Penny Black...

I colored the image with Copic markers then cut it out with this “HBD” birthday die from The Stamp Market. I added a Memory Box Branch die cut and a little birdie from a past kit that I colored with Copics, too.

I added lots of Nuvo Glitter Paste in “Moonstone” on the flowers and the bird, and embossed PTI’s Hawaiian Shores” cardstock with Stampin Up’s “Subtle” 3D embossing folder.

Thank you SO much to Marcia for sharing these gorgeous papers, die cuts, and florals with us this month! Made my heart so happy sitting in my crafting room in the sunshine! Thanks to all for stopping by today! ❤️


  1. I llke them all, but the Stampingbella “Bundle Girl with a Snowdrop” stole the show!

  2. Oh Kelly...all 3 of your cards are FABULOUS!! I'm so glad you liked the snowdrop girl (she's one of my favorites too!!) and you've colored and framed her so beautifully! Your colorful Tulip card is SOOOOO pretty (love the little added bow!!) and I am blown away by your HBD card! How creative to color all the blossoms and then die cut the letters...never would have thought to do that!! And the added branch and sweet little birdie just finished it to perfection! Thank you so much for making my little kit SHINE!! Hugs. :0)

  3. Hi Kelly! I always love seeing what you're up to! Your girl with the snowdrops is adorable! I love the soft coloring! The mason jar of tulips is GORGEOUS on the pattern paper, and I am so impressed that you had the strength to cut that embossed floral panel into letters! It turned out beautifully!

  4. Kelly your cards are all so pretty! The first card is stunning!

  5. Oh all your sweet cards! I agree with Tracey, your first card is simply stunning. Love how you colored that little sweetie! Your tulips are wonderful too, just love your big bold letters on your final card. All are simply wonderful!
