It's the last day of the month (WOW!) and that means 12 Kits Day! This month we were treated to a Christmas kit from Sharron Gregory! SO many fabulous things packed into this kit!
First up is a sweet little folk bird from Plum Purdy Designs!
Colored it with Copic markers and glittered it up to match the lovely ribbon. Cut out the branch and added some snowy glitter and berries, too.
Next was an adorable sentiment that I thought went perfectly with my favorite gingerbread guy from Papertrey Ink's Holiday Button Bits.
Some little epoxy hearts, candy cane background paper, and the fun rick rack die cut all went well with my "sweets" theme...
Oh how I love this adorable Plum Purdy Designs "Charlie Brown" primitive tree! I paired it with some of my own things including linen washi tape, a button, and a heat embossed sentiment from Skipping Stones Design's "Christmas Song" set.
I decorated the tree with some mini red gems, pearls, and a sparkling "tinsel" star.
For my final project, a little experiment. LOVED Jessica Witty's card HERE and Suzanne Dahlberg's card HERE featuring "neat" paint dots. I am still afraid of splattering paint or mists, but liked the way their little dots looked like tiny brads!
Hmm...not quite so much on my project. Need more practice and different tools, I think! I used a very small brush, but think that I need something that can actually "drop" the paint, or a stylus like Jess suggested. I have one but it's buried at the bottom of my closet. I was too lazy (and impatient!) to get it once I started the actual painting!
Speaking of "re-dos" I also wish that I had stamped the second half of the sentiment in black :)! The "Twinkle Twinkle" is from a Technique Tuesday set from Sharron, and the "You're my Star" is from Waltzingmouse Stamps "Seasons of Love-Tags" set.
Wasn't this kit AMAZING? I can't wait to see what the other ladies have made with it! Just wanted to say thanks SO much to Sharron for the kit. I hear that next month's kit is already in the mail, so excited when those arrive!
