The 12 Kits of Occasions ~ Here Comes the Sun!

This is my second post for the day. 
You can find my ColourQ card here!



Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo), 
Here comes the sun, 
and I say it's all right...

Are you singing along with me yet? {Here Comes the Sun} is the name of this month's 12 Kits of Occasions kit. Sharron is our hostess for May. She has supplied us with a bright and happy kit perfect for kicking off our summer!! Let's get to it, shall we!

As usual I will list anything not included in the kit. You can find a list of all supplies we were provided on the 12 Kits blog



First up is a pretty little hibiscus bloom and leaves that I watercolored then coated with WOS. The sentiment was cut with a PPP Mini Tags die. 

 

Isn't this little bunny sweet! I stamped some Stamps by Judith grass around him and layered up the sentiment with some Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die cutting.



This one is my hubby's fave! I used the negative side of the PPP Stitched Borders 3 die for my background paper and sentiment. And another (Stitched Borders 2) to add interest to the bottom portion of the card.



This little gecko is just too much fun isn't he! I used yet another PPP die (Stitched Photo Frame) here to create a shaker. It's surrounded with leaves, blooms and snippets of one of the sentiments I cut apart. I really like Sharron's embossed summer! I fussy cut around it leaving a border to make it appear die cut. 

That's all from me today. I'll be visiting my talented teammates later to see what they created with the kit. I know they'll provided me with a boat load of ideas for my leftovers!! ~Lisa

Lisa, your attention to detail is fabulous. And so are your cards! Adore how you used your die cut images!

Oh Lisa.. amazing.. I'm picking a favorite this time.. the last one with the polaroid lizard.. love all the embellishments and pop of color. The thing that jumps out at me most this time is how well you coordinate colors - the pretty grey border on the grey bunny card, the purples on the first, and even on the hula girl - the tan and corals.. all so beautiful and a treat to behold!

Fabulous creations, Lisa. I love the mix of papers on the first one and the way it looks like the Gecko is getting into a box of sequins. Such a clever arrangment.

Patti said...

These are all just great! I am especially fond of that sweet -perfectly colored! gecko! the expression on his face makes him completely huggable!

I received my Sweet Pea stamp set and was disappointed your name was not on the packaging!! I am thinking of sending it to you so you can autograph it! : ) I've never had a famous friend before!! Can't wait to ink this darling set up and see if I can come up with a card half as cute as the ones YOU make!!

I love how you ended your post with "that's it from me." haha! That's IT?! It was a whole scrolling sesh of awesomeness! Each card was fresher and happier than the next. So cute!

Lindsey said...

Oh, Lisa, these are wonderful! I am with your husband...your little aga waist girl is darling, live the colors, layout, everything! And your shaker is equally awesome...love your placement of everything on it. I also love how you used a bit of everything from the kit. So inspired!

The Paper Parade said...

Lisa, I'm dying over here with that iguana card...its spectacular! I love that its a shaker card, but its also tilted, has added flowers/leaves poking out, and of course the iguana! Its just awesome :) I think my second favorite is the hula dancer one, I love all the different layers, and how you added the pink twine and tied it behind the perfectly colored flowers, just beautiful!

Tracey McNeely said...

Lisa a beautiful collection of cards. I am singing along right now! Each card beautifully coloured and your designs are all so unique, you always know how to add all the right elements together and layer them perfectly. That gecko card is just the cutest combined with a shaker--brilliant! I have a few more ideas now of what to do with my leftovers.

LeAnne said...

These are amazing! Such bright sunshiney colors, they all make me SMILE! I think summer is right around the corner!
