12 Kits with Renee!


Renee is our hostess for the 12 Kits of Occasions this month, and she sent us the most adorable kit featuring Crate Paper's "Bundled Up" Collection and oodles of snowmen, snowflakes, snowy sentiments, and sparkling embellishments galore!  Kara made this collage and I always love to make it extra large on my blog so you can see how jam-packed the kits are!

I absolutely loved this snowman from My Favorite Things when I saw him the kit.  I remembered wanting him long ago, and think I will be ordering him soon!  He was such fun to color, perfect for a beginner like me.  Added some teeny sequin snowflakes and a sentiment from PTI's "In the Meadow" set.


Next up, adorable die cuts!  First the mini snowman from My Favorite Things "Snowglobe" die set and a sentiment on a "Tilted Banner" die cut from Simon Says Stamp. The snowy hills are embossed with a Sizzix Dots embossing plate.




Then a large snowman cut with PTI's "Shape Up Snowman" die.


I added some teal brad buttons, and a scarf made with rustic ribbon...I am thinking it's either from Jeanne's Christmas kit, or possibly hoarded from Renee's kit from LAST year!!  The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps "Alpine Christmas."  I also embossed the snowy hill with a Cuttlebug hexagon embossing plate and then stamped with little stars from the new WMS set "Gift Card It" to match the patterned paper in the background.


Last but not least...the pink vellum snowflakes.  I gasped out loud when I saw them!  Tons of fluffy pink and white vellum snowflakes came cascading out of the envelope onto my table.  I could only bear to use two here...


I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the A Muse Studio Woodgrain impression plate, and then cut a square window.  Layered 2 snowflakes over the top.  A silver sequins hides the dimensionals quite well :)
I really wanted the rosy pink to show, so I backed it with black cardstock.  So lovely!  Glad I have more...I think I will be buying some pink vellum at Michael's SOON!

Thanks SO much to Renee for this awesome kit.  I have oodles and oodles left!  I am continually amazed by the generosity of all of the 12 Kitters each month.

Worth the wait...love that beautiful vellum snowflake card the most...looks so nice against the woodgrain and that great super-sized sentiment. I also love the snowman with the green scarf. So smart to look back through your kits for little extras! Great use of the kit Kelly.

First of all Kelly, I just love the sweet green scarf on the snowman, that looks so awesome! What a statement. Then I love your shading around the adorable MFT snowman, it really makes him stand out!

Fabulous cards, Kelly! I really love the large snowman. The scarf is a perfect accent and the wonderful background papers & colors look fantastic.

Wonderful collection of cards. So very worth waiting for. Your rustic ribbon scarf is a fabulous idea, and I just adore how that vellum snowflake looks on the black background. I think I'll be heading to Michaels to pick up some pink vellum as well--(see you there?)
