Twelve Kits of Occasions - February

Nancy Penir is our host this month over at the 12 Kits of Occasions.  She gave us everything we needed to have a party in the park including balloons, pinatas, carousels, and flowers!
I made eight cards for this party:

As you can see, there is such a variety of styles in my cards, as Nancy provided such a rich array of elements.  I had so much fun with this kit, Nancy!  Please head on over to the Twelve Kits of Occasions blog to see how creatively the team used this wonderful kit.

All of the supplies from the kit are listed on the 12 Kits blog.
Here's a list of items I used from my own craft room:

Dies:  N&T Box, ME Stitched Hill Borders (otter water), LF Tag You're It, MFT Single Stitched Line Rectangle Frame, Small Scallop Rectangle Frame, Fringed Scallop Border,"love" and "d" from "friend", PTI Scene it Basic Backer, Scene It Doily Tag Base, Paper Clippings Thank You, Sizzix circle and scalloped circles
Other:  Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents, Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder, Copic Markers

Thanks for coming over to visit!  I hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh my goodness Kara, I didn't want this post to end. From start to finish, I was ooohing and aaahing over each one of your amazing cards! Each card is pure magic and I wish I could case every one. Beautifully done Kara!!!

  2. Just like Birgit, I didn't want your post to end either Kara...what a parade of lovely, lovely cards!! I could so easily have made more cards with the kit, but wanted to save some supplies to CASE and now I am SOOOOO glad I did!! I absolutely LOVE the card with all 3 of the piñata shapes and also the card where you used all the different elements like the strip of hearts from the bag and the little squares that had all the ribbon and twine wrapped around them...such a COOL card Kara! You really rocked this challenge my friend...LOVED every.single.card!! :0)

  3. What a great kit this month. Every card is wonderful and colorful and has great designs. I love the first card with the gift box and tissue paper. That is so cute.

  4. Not only did you showcase all those wonderful goodies that Nancy sent, you've showcased your varied cardmaking styles. From whimsical to layered and lovely, and all beautifully done. Can't decide if it's the box, or rose, or carousel horse, or pinatas, or otter... Nope. Can't decide which I like best. But they're all pretty darn cool, if you're asking me! Way to shine, girl! Have a good day Patricia. xoxoBev

  5. WOW! So in love with all your sweet creations! That swan card is my favorite, simply magical! Your pinata card is so much fun, just so clever and fun. Your first card is fun, just love that box with the tissue paper and that balloon is fabulous! Your sweet otter is as cute as can be. Love them all!

  6. Lots of wonderful AHHHH HAAA Moments here. The colored bows on that plaid die cut and hand cut roses from the paper.. brilliant! All that frilly feminine gold with the swans? And swoon more gold added to the die cut roses. I think my favorite here is the first with the surprise open box with tissue paper and the balloon escaping. Total party going on! What a treat to see all you made today!

  7. Beautiful cards, I didn't want to see them end:)!

  8. Oh, WOW! These are all so amazing! We seemed to be on the same wavelength with the Let's Party sentiment. I love your fun tissue-filled box (one of my favorites)! Your carousel design is also wonderfully festive and I adore that bright otter card. Another of my favorites is the pinata party design--LOVE how colorful and fun it is, definitely like a party! And all the floral designs are so pretty as is the beautiful swan design!

  9. Your party in a box is spectacular, I love it so much! What a fabulous line up of cards Kara. I went back and forth checking out each one multiple times, they're just wonderful. And the piñata card, slam dunk!!
