Second Helpings!

Welcome to the 12 Kits Of Occasions! 

Its second helpings over at the 12 kits blog today! I chose to make all the same designs using lots of leftover patterned paper from the kits.

Sorry the above 4 pictures are such poor quality. I gave these away in a set and  I could not rephotograph them. 

 I used the Die-namics Quilt Square Cover-Up on all my cards. 

Although these were time consuming to make I enjoyed making them as it was very relaxing. Each card design was cut out three times. I was able to use coordinating paper on some.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
Cant wait to see what the rest of the girls created

I added Glossy Accents on all of the little critters eyes.

Hello! Quick post.  A while ago I colored these images in non traditional colors just for fun. I think I used a variety of inks and pens.  It was nice to create a card with everything ready to go. We sure had one busy weekend! Hope yours was a good one.  Thank you for all the Anniversary wishes.

Taking Your Best Friend Fishing

 Anja Curvers brings us  this darling  inspiration for challenge #24

Welcome, I hope you are all well and happy! 

This will go on the gift I have for my husband, we are blessed to be celebrating 39 years of marriage today. ( yep I was a teen bride) 


I had fun creating this little tag and I have to say it came together rather fast! I love it when that happens! I might change the  Caribbean Stripe   twine to brown. 
Everything on the tag is from Poppystamps and the tag itself is from Serendipity Stamps Stitched Duo 1(pretty pink posh) 

Cant wait to see what you create!

God Bless!

Retro Guy Card

 Hello! We have one more card to inspire you for this months challenge. 
The DT was asked to add texture. My texture is in the raised round orange circles. 

 When this stamp first came out I couldn’t wait to use it and then time slipped away from me. The set is designed by Anya I thought this was perfect for a guy card. I left it black to add the sentiment as I need it .
 Most likely: Happy Birthday. 

 Today was a fun day, In the pool with my daughter and kids. We had a blast but by the time they left it was getting under the wire to post my card. So happy it was made and photographed .
I hop you have a chance to play in the challenge and have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Serendipity Stamps store.

Summer Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the June Hop. We have some beautiful summer stamps to share with you today. Want a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Serendipity Stamps? Just leave a comment here and on the other design team blogs. 

 I used the new Serendipity Stamps: Daisy

I really loved how the first one turned out so I made two more. All I did was mask off my paper and took a small dauber and blended it . I then stamped the image colored it in with copic markers . I decide to stamp and cut out the top of the flower so I could pop it up.

 I have a few bits of blending out of the line but I don’t mind , I think it softens the edge up a bit.

As you can see I also added Glossy Accents to make it look like dew drops.  Hope you like it!

Papertrey Ink Softie And A Thank You

Dawn made a beautiful card today for MIM

Hello! Boy did we heat up today 104 that is so crazy! 
I seem to be spending all my time wanting to make softies and scissor keepers. 

This little softie went to our granddaughter, Ava.  After making the Pirate 
 I kept this one simple and stuck to the design of Erin’s. I did add that big bow and some bling to make her more girlie. For a birthday I add the money in the back pocket.

 This is my take on MIM. It must be your computer if you seem to see some of the dots not matching up :)
 Couldn’t be my stamping!

I just received this split sentiment die and I am not too sure if I  used it correctly. 
Dose anyone know if I am to keep the die together or cut it apart. 
Seems like my gap is way to large. I would love to know. Thanks!
