12 Kits of Occasions ~ December 2016

Note: I have something odd going on with my blog design so I've put a temporary blogger template up. I know things still look a bit off, but at least the pesky triangles with exclamation points are gone.

Hi friends! We're closing out 2016 with the last group post of the year from The 12 Kits of Occasions.




Jessica's is our hostess this month sending us a kit full of awesomeness!! I used each and every one of her cutie patootie polar bears! Just take a look!!



This bear is skating on a vellum pond with a PPP die cut edge and twinkling stars. He has a bit of frosty sparkle on his nose and skates.



This one was added to a trio of PPP die cut tags. I thought the knit embossing folder went well with the polar bear.


I will probably set this one aside for Sweet P to give to her mommy for Valentine's Day! I gave the bears an icy patch to sit on using PPP seed beads. I flooded the area with Tombow glue and pushed them in. Worked like a charm!


This one is my hubby's fave. Don't the flourishes from the sentiment look fun wrapped around the mountains!!


I added some solid gold paper from my stash to the pretty patterned one Jessica sent. They're die cut with a PTI snowflake. 

The penguins in the kit were too fun to pass up too!

After fussy cutting and coloring this cool dude, he was put on a wobbler! I used this nifty DP to create his ski slope. To me it looks like those mogul bumps. You know, the event where skier's knees look like they're on springs LOL!! 



I placed this chilly willy to look like he's snowboarding off the sentiment. Not sure if he likes it, he looks a bit wide eyed and nervous!!


I'm off to see what the team has created. 
Tag along with me to check out the awesome inspiration!!

LOVE them all but that ice-skating bear made me grin - his vellum background and shiny stars is such a "magical" look!!

Kim Heggins said...

Lisa...so many beautiful and amazing cards! I love your use of all those critters, just adorable and on every card too, just love it! Love all the bits of sparkle too, so sweet. Happy New Year!

Bobby said...

Wow, Lisa! You've outdone yourself. All your cards are fantastic and since I just got the Polar Bear set (am waiting on the die) I'm pinning a couple of these for inspiration.

Good Morning, Miss Lisa. Your cards are awesome, where to begin!?!?!? You gave each critter his (or her) own winsome personality. Love them all! Mama and baby are so sweet on their bed of sugary snow!!! The flourish from your sentiment wrapped around the snowcapped mountain is genius. And the golden snowflakes behind the waving bear with the sweet heart is pure perfection!!!! Wow and wow!

Marybeth said...

Sorry about your blog problems! Wish I could help. My son is out of town so I can't ask him.
Darling cards for sure , Lisa! So many darling layers and the snowflake card is beautiful and cute all at the same time! You did Jessica proud with these cards!

Rosemary said...

andrea b said...

Wow, what a wonderful mix of layers, colors and techniques. Looks like you had a lot of fun along the way!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Again, you ROCKED it out. Such adorable use of the fun bears. Happy New Year to you - I look forward to your 2017 creations.

ps - My view your blog background is filled with exclamation triangles, and I am popping over to visit your blog. -- did you try to change something? Very bizarre.

LeAnne said...

I always enjoy seeing what everyone makes from these kits! Your creations are as cute as can be! I think the skiing penguin is my favorite! Happy New Year to you too!

Tracey McNeely said...

Wow Lisa so many fantastic cards from Jessica's kit! Each and every one of them is so unique and you always know how to add to the kits with the perfect dies! I am sorry you were having troubles with triangles today, but the blog looks great right now. Wishing you a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2017! xoxo

Oh Lisa, these cards are just gorgeous and so very sweet! And I think I agree with your husband...the one with the flourish sentiment wrapped around the mountains is simply amazing!

Oh my, Lisa, those cute skiing/snowboarding penguins are fabulous ... wish I looked as cool on a mogul field!! Your adorable bears ... completely sweet and so gorgeous ... it's becoming harder and harder to resist these cuddly guys! Hugs, Anita :)

Oh my goodness, Lisa--I keep going up & down looking at all these wonderful cards! You truly are so creative, always! I absolutely adore the first one with the vellum pond & using the seed beads is genius! Happy, Happy New Year, my friend! Kisses for Sweet P (her mom is going to love that card!)

Joyce said...

Gorgeous cards. Love how many feature those adorable polar bears. Love the vellum ice rink. That's a great idea I plan to copy.

MackieMade Paper Creations said...

I always enjoy seeing what you do with this fun kit!!!!!

Sharron said...

Wow, SUPER sweetness! Love how you made such unique designs for all the bears and penguins, every one fabulous! Scrolled through several times just to see all the wonderful details you added! The card for Sweet Pea to give on Valentine's is absolutely precious!

Jeanne J. said...

WOW!~ So many LOVES here.. you have such a great eye for detail Lisa.. All the stars everywhere make these look like magical scenes.. like with the bear skating, and the penguin snowboarding. I love the gold die cut snowflakes behind the bear - this makes him the center of attention - king of the winter wonderland. and the adorable bear sitting by the mountains.... how you wrapped the words around the mountains.. brilliant! I love them all!!

The Paper Parade said...

Lisa, AHHHH! This post is full of so much cuteness, I LOVE all the cards!!!! I think my favorite is the one with the mountains, I love how you took the sentiment and wrapped it around them like that, I SO need to copy that, it looks so cool! Next is the tiny polar bear on the tag, so sweet how he is on the tiny tag and then you had all the others scattered behind. The first card is amazing, I love the vellum and how you put the stars coming out behind the ice skate! The bear on the snowflakes AWWW and I love the modern art pop look of the skiing penguin one and the coloring on the last one is just the bomb...you took my kit and did amazing things, my dear!
