12 Kits of Occasion ~ March

Can you believe that March is over already?  That means it's time for the 12 Kits of Occasion gals to post their amazing cards!  

This month's hostess was the incredibly talented Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life

 Her kit really was "Out Of This World"!  I had so much fun creating with this kit!  Everything she included was new to me so it was incredibly fun stepping outside of my creative box.  Thank you so much Jeanne!!!

This was the first card I made.  I blended on lots of color and then went over it all with black distress ink to create a galactic night sky.  I spritzed it with a bit of water for more interest.  Aren't these rockets darling!  I'm so glad Jeanne put two of them in our kits.  ;0)

Jeanne included this wonderful stitched swirl panel of water color card stock and I was afraid I had ruined it by spritzing on three colors of Heidi Swapp Shimmer Mist.  It looked muddy at first but once it dried, it didn't look too terrible so I kept moving forward.  This rocket looks out of this world with those stunning swirly rhinestones that were included in the kit. 

Jeanne had this wonderful sentiment in the kit that really stumped me until I thought about making it look like it was painted on a fence.  I stamped a wood grain background and cut each board out using an MFT die.  I staggered the sizes of the boards to create this fence.  The moon and stars were included in the kit but the kitty is from my stash.

Jeanne also included all these wonderful patterned papers in the kit.  I printed a picture of the moon on my printer and cut it in half to use on this card and one you'll see further down.  

This card is my favorite!  I just love the colors, clouds and sweet patterned paper.  I cut the 3-2-1 blast-off sentiment out using a cloud die from Memory Box.

Jeanne thinks of everything!  She even included these little wiggle eyes that I used on two of the aliens in the kit.  Talk about CUTE!!

Here's the other half of that printed moon.  Isn't this little astronaut darling??

Here's my last card.  Can you see where I messed up?  I heat embossed the "Have A" and "Birthday" but I smudged the "have a" before it had a chance to cool off.  WHOOPS!  That's ok because once you open the card, you'll completely forget about the mistake.
Here's the inside of the card.  I made it a pop-up using all these fun little planets and aliens that were included in the kit.


A close up of all the dimension.

I'm so happy that you stopped by to see my cards using Jeanne's fun kit.  Be sure to visit the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how my talented teamies and Jeanne's 4 guest designers used their kits.  

I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
