Hello everyone. Summer is slipping by quickly. It already feels like fall here in Maine. I enjoy the colors and crisp air of fall, but I'm already not looking forward to the snow and cold temperatures that follow. The end of the month brings us to the group post for 12 Kits of Occasion. This month was hosted by Marybeth of Marybeth's Time For Paper, with her kit titled "Simple Leaves". Anyone who knows Marybeth, knows that she has an exquisite eye for CAS designs. She's also one of the sweetest and most thoughtful people I know. Here's a picture of the kit that she sent. I just love the fresh color palette she used. It emulates Marybeth and her incredible style perfectly.
I made three cards this month because I've been spending a lot of time outside enjoying what's left of summer but I have plenty of leftovers to make more cards. Here's my cards:
Marybeth sent two stamped panels using this falling leaves stamp. She also included the large Altenew letters. I simply added a couple of stamped sentiments to go along with it from PTI.
I colored this embossed sunflower panel using Copic markers. I added distress ink to the outside edges and splattered Gathered Twigs DOX ink to add a bit of texture.
The "smile" die cut was leftover from a previous kit that I colored black and added black WOS to make it sparkle.
I'm adding this card to the Time Out Challenge for their current "Season" challenge.
This was another embossed panel that Marybeth included in her kit along with the printed paper strip down the side. I added the sunflowers from Simon Says Stamps and the "Enjoy" die cut from the kit.
I hope you enjoyed today's post. Please stop by the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how all my friends were inspired by Marybeth's kit. Thanks so much Marybeth! I enjoyed creating with your kit.
Thanks for stopping by!
