Fairy Tales ~ 12 Kits of Occasion

Good morning everyone ~ It's my turn to host over at the 12 Kits of Occasion blog this month and I chose a theme that's near and dear to my heart since I was a little girl..... Fairy Tales.  My kit was a little different this month because it was loaded with adorable, magical images to color (another past time that I always loved to do as a child and I still enjoy today).  
Thanks Lindsey for taking the photo's that always make our kits look fabulous every month!

I also have a guest designer with me this month.  Kara from Bright Hope Creations, whom I met on my trip to Kansas.  She's the sweetest person to get to know and incredibly gifted in every way so please be sure to pop by her blog and give her some love.

Now on to the cards I made using this month's kit:
This little cutie is Tiny Towny Fairy Garden Fairy from Stampingbella.  She is as sweet as can be and I love the sentiment that comes with her.

This lovely fairy is also from Stampingbella, meet Edna the Everything Fairy.  As I was trying to think of what I was going to do with her, I remembered I had this funny sentiment stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps.  They have a great line of witty stamps.  
I used the sentiment from the kit for the inside of the card.
This little mermaid from Honey Bee Stamps Swimming By couldn not be overlooked when putting together this kit.  I added sequins to her fishy body, Glossy Accents to the turtle and lots of Wink of Stella.

The mushroom dies from The Scrapping Cottage are among my favorite dies.  They look good in any color and can be used for so many different occasions!  The log house from The Scrapping Cottage makes the perfect home for Poppy Stamps Magnificent Mini Faeries.

These gnomes are also from The Scrapping Cottage.

I couldn't wait to try coloring the princess carriage from Spellbinders Pretty Princess like a pumpkin.  So cute!

MFT's Magical Dragons made an appearance in this kit.  I've wanted these little guys for a long time and finally broke down and ordered them.  They're so fun to color and give life to.  

I turned this card into a shaker card.

I added some puffy stitched clouds and a sparkly star shaped birthday balloon from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Thanks for sticking with me.  I know it was a long post.  I do hope you'll stop by the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how my talented teamies used this kit.  You can find the complete list of products I used to create this kit on their blog as well. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. First off... I ADORED this kit! Every sweet piece of fairy fun laid out on my worktable for the longest time before I could bear to assemble. I wanted to save everything! And then my granddaughter broke her arm, and every card seem to make itself! She was in need of grandma's magic and one by one the cards came to life (honestly!) I'm so glad I saved a few things, to case you all. And the dragons, oh my, love them! Your coloring is wonderful on both of your dragon cards. The sweet flying guy blowing out the bd candles is pure charm! Love how you colored the pumpkin carriage. It's wonderful! Seriously in awe with each and every piece of jolly magic you made!

  10. Oh, Birgit, I absolutely LOVED your kit! This was such a fun, playful theme. Every one of your cards looks fantastic and I'm in awe of your coloring--everything is so beautifully done! The Stamping Bella fairies are adorable and how cute to see Edna with her fat-free cupcake! The little woodland images were especially dear to me. My arched leafy die is from Hero Arts, the first Monthly Kit I bought but unfortunately they don't sell them later. I'll be happy to send you some though. Interestingly it came with a fairy set. I too loved the dragons and what wonderful coloring on yours. That big glittery balloon is just amazing!! As is the perfectly adorned mermaid--adding sequins in her tail is genius! Thanks for a truly awesome month!!
