I made this--
Jeanne's kit included some beautiful papers, die cuts and sentiments, as well as some bling.
I was excited to dive into some of the colors of the papers, because they're colors I don't reach for that often, and I was excited to do some stretching.
This card just called out for some hysteria, in spite of the call for calm. I mean, just look at any crafter's desk after a craft session. Sure looks like craziness at my house...
I even had to go for the action wobblers!
So fun, right? I love those things. I especially love that the smoosh down enough to make it easy to mail. Anything to save a stamp...
Next, I made this--
This Pure Innocence girl from MFT Stamps is so cute, flexing her creative muscles. I paired it with this background stamp, thinking I'd be placing her outside the frame and painting what's inside, but I got a wild hair and switched things up, mostly thanks to the sentiment.
You color my WORLD, not my picture...get it?? anyway, I found it amusing...
Next, I made this--
I love that background paper; I had to use it! And, with so much color going on, I think it really suits here.
The white panel is actually a tag die cut. After coloring up and piling my rainbow paintbrushes in the circle, I found I could hide the hole at the top of the panel with some clever placement. I was happy to get to do this, because I didn't really have to add strings or ribbons here.
I love the images of the paint tubes, especially the oozing one. But guess what?
See the blob on the bottom right?
well, I put the card together without that, and I kinda felt that I had left myself a weird hole at the bottom of the panel. So I DREW myself a blob! By HAND! It seemed so bizarre an idea to made an image myself...but a few copics, and a .05 Micron pen, and I was in business! I figure anybody can draw a blob, for Pete's sake...
So, there you go.
Finally, I made this--
This little monkey ( or at my house, leetle minkee) was a leftover from the first card, and he was too cute to leave behind. Happily, the kit had one more tag die, and I popped this guy up on an action Wobbler, too! (Sorry, no video for this one...)
The fact that he was holding that glue bottle in an oh-so-obviously threatening way (LOL) led me to the sentiment.
I just get such a big smile from this one!
So, that's my collection. I have to say THANK YOU once again to sweet Jeanne for asking me to play along. PLEASE go to the 12 Kits of Occasions site to see all the smart and beautiful things the team has come up with. I promise it'll spark some creativity of your own...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
