12 Kits of Occasions: February Watercolor Wonders

Well Hello there, and welcome to February 12 Kits of Occasions!
It's my month and I chose a watercolor theme.

Lindsey put together this gorgeous collage of the kit!

Watercolor Wonders!
I'm seeing watercolors everywhere in the card world, from a spash of color
on a die cut, to working a background, we're all loving the 
dreamy free form splashes of color. 
Can't wait to see what the talented designers of 12 Kits do this month, 
and there's a guest designer too, 
Marcia Hill from Marcia's Stampin' Pad.
I think I got carried away with the joys of card making with my own kit! (LOL!)
Not even going to tell you how many cards I made, just scroll on down and hopefully enjoy!

This effect came about with rock salt.
Have you used it with wet color? It soaks up the paint, and leaves this 
crazy texture!

Haven't been able to put Bold Blossoms away ever since my PTI order came!
Last month!

Hard to see, but this one's been sprayed with Imagine Fireworks.

I sent everyone the designer paper peeking out on the left, & added the fuchsia watercolor on the paper's butterflies with my Zig pens.

Anyone recognize this older rubber stamp from Stampington?

Loved painting these gorgeous magnolia blossoms  from Altenew!

If I had to pick a favorite, it's the way this bg within the frame turned out.
Sometimes the sweetest accidents just happen with watercolors!

This fun tag was included in the kit, along with the congrats tag.

I'm closing with this card using a Waltzingmouse stamp set.
I just heard Claire is closing down her company.
We have all loved her charming stamps and dies, and
hate to see her go. To read more, visit ...WMS is closing and send some love!
Well that's it!

You're in for a treat with the rest of the designers.
Don't miss a single one!

You'll find a full list of supplies on the 12 Kits of Occasions Website.


  1. Wow Nancy, I don't even know where to begin. All your cards are amazing! Each one is a work of art! I've never tried using salt before with water colors and am so intrigued after reading everyone's posts and seeing all their fabulous cards. What a fun kit you've put together!! Marcia's a lucky gal to be your guest!

  2. OMG Nancy! This kit was a DREAM! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed playing with the watercolors! All the images were perfect and I don't know how you pulled it all together. I love all of your beautiful cards - the watercolor makes each and every one so unique and a total feast for the eyes. I love the tie dye look of your framed butterfly and the teacups with the die cut watercolor background on the pattern paper! Thank you so much for this wonderful kit!

  3. Just like Jeanne said:OMGosh! I knew they would all be amazing! I also knew this kit was a kit made in heaven for Jeanne! Thanks for a great kit assembled in such a short amount of time.
    Love the watercolor on your cards and the first one the way you pulled it all together with TWO frames, wow! I now want donuts with sprinkles with my coffee! Well done my friend!

  4. Hi Nancy! I wish I'd had more water-colored wonders in my gallery ... I certainly LOve what you've done with them here! Wonders, indeed!!! I'm running to see what Jeanne, and the others have made ... so sorry I was a bit tardy!

  5. Amazing! But then I knew every one of your cards would be!! :0) I put 2 colors together and think I'm being brave and daring, and you put all the colors together...I'm so going back with my extra supplies and make a "brave" card!! Each one of your cards is truly stunning really have been blessed with a gift! And thank you again SO much for asking me to guest with you this month...the kit was absolutely fabulous and I totally loved playing with it! Thank you, thank you dear friend!! :0)

  6. Wow, your cards are incredible! I've gone back and revisited them several times, just to enjoy every detail. Your watercoloring is absolutely amazing! Makes me want to watercolor everything I do. You really did spoil us with all the wonderful supplies. Thank you so much for a great kit! And also for being so sweet about doing a month so soon.

  7. Oh my goodness Nancy! You sent us the mat amazing kit unlike anything we have had before. All I can say is that I had so much fun playing with it and still so much more I can do! Now there are 10 projects here by the way-lol each one is unique and just amazing. You definitely have a knack for backgrounds. I am still working on the light touch. So happy to have you as part of the team your first kit was awesome.

  8. Wow! What a feast for the eyes! These are all stunning Nancy! All of your watercoloring is just gorgeous!

  9. I am not surprised to see a huge number of stunning cards here, as your kit was so amazing. I loved creating with it--clearly so much time, thought and $$ went into this kit. I cannot pick a favorite, as I love all of your projects, but perhaps the last--whimsical hearts, combined with a coffee and donuts--just too much fun. Thanks again for sending out such an amazing kit. I had such fun working with it.

  10. Great kit, Nancy! Love your layers & textures and the fun bursts of watercolor on these cards.

  11. I completely expected to be blown away by your projects and somehow you even exceeded those expectations! Honestly, I'm so in awe! I've been studying each one wondering how you did this it how you did that. So wishing we could have a little craft session together and you could teach me all of your tricks! Thank you for this beautiful kit and for being so generous because I cannot wait to try to recreate some of your beauties.


So happy you came for a visit. I love reading your comments!
