12 Kits of Occasions April '18

Hi friends! Welcome to 12 Kits' April post. This month's hostess is
Lisa Elton, from My Paper Tales, and what a sweety of a kit she gave us!
'My Little Chickadee' is the theme, with birds and feathers,  tweety sentiments,
and lots of gorgeous papers.

Are you settled in with a cuppa? Hope you enjoy my cards!

Lindsey included this stamped stem of flowers on kraft. Couldn't wait to pencil in the color.
PTI stencil dots on Aqua Mist cardstock.

Isn't he adorable? He's titled 'Choirboy', and he's from Past Time Stamps.

One of the most fun we friends have is combining elements in our kit. This Impression Obsession 
couple on the clothesline seemed perfectly matched to this sentiment!
PTI's Sunshine rays stencil.

All these elements were included in this month's kit, even those sweet little wood birds.
The twine is Lawn Fawn.

I cut a window in this pattern paper Lisa included, from PTI's Window Works die,
and fussy cut and copic colored the bird on the branch.

And finally this card, with a sentiment from Serendipity.

Hope you enjoyed the post today, I loved working with Lisa's kit,
and have plenty to do several more cards. Just the kind of kit I love!

Thank you Lisa!
Don't forget to visit the other kit designers. Always fun to see what they do with the same kit!

  3. WOW...what a joy and delight every one of your cards is Nancy! I can see why this kit was right up your alley...Lisa did a FABULOUS job with everything she included and I'm so excited to go hopping to see what every one else did. Your first card is so bright and vibrant and so hard to believe you made that all come from just using colored pencils! Absolutely adore the little guy standing on the branch with the birds...SO sweet and beautifully colored too!! I LOVE that feathered paper/card...just too sweet, and your last card is FABULOUS too! Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! :0)

  4. Oh My Goodness...each card is a masterpiece! From your stunning lilacs to all your sweet birds and your coloring is over the top amazing! Your final card is stunning and my favorite, love that you used sheet music paper behind the wonderful world tag! FABulous!

  5. Wow, wow, WOW!! A stunningly gorgeous group of cards, Nancy!! Love your coloring of the images!

  6. Each and every one is a little work of art Nancy!! Your lilacs are beautifully colored and those sun rays were a brilliant idea! I LOVE the bird on a branch card with the feather paper. Adding the tiny feathers to the circle die cut is such a sweet touch. Thanks for making my kit shine!

  7. OK I need to know how you did those lilacs - what pencils you used. I tried to color them with prismacolor and it just got so dark they got lost. I love how you added the white. If you look at mine I actually erased all the coloring and the soft purple is what got left behind. So jealous!

  8. You have done a fabulous job with this adorable kit!

  9. so, so pretty! what a wonderful kit this month and you've used it well! I love that last card!

  10. Wonderful cards Nancy, love especially the white highlighting on your flowers on kraft.

  11. Good morning Nancy~ What a beautiful way to start the day, visiting your blog and seeing all of these amazing creations. Each one is pure delight! The lilacs are so stunning. You did an amazing job coloring them and bringing them to life. And that window chickadee card has me wishing I had more of that paper so I could case this card. Thanks for a wonderful start to my day. Sending (Hugs)

  12. Nancy so many lovely cards this month. You always always do the unexpected and I love the ideas you inspire me with. Lovely colouring and ideas for my leftovers too. I am amazed at the colouring on the lilacs--wow!

  13. What a treat, Nancy! Every card is so amazing! The lilacs are so pretty, the white shading really makes them pop. And I love the sunshine behind the birds on the clothesline, just a perfect design. Your card with the feather paper is especially gorgeous. The window was such a sweet touch and your chickadee coloring is fabulous and fun!

  14. WOW, Nancy, such an amazing array of beautiful cards! SO much lovely detail, that I could never, ever muster up or imagine. Love, LOVE the very fist card, full of fabulous color and the second with such lovely layering/stitching/shading.....oh, I just love 'em all!
