12 Kits of Occasions - Snow Day!

If you aren't familiar with the brilliant layering skills of this month's 12 Kits of Occasions host... you are missing something special!  Jeanne Jachna, may I just say:  I did my very best to channel my inner Jeanne, and added a dash of me!

Yes!  It IS the last day of January... where I live, it is a thing to celebrate.  Jeanne's Kit is also something to celebrate... here's a peek:


All of Jeanne's supplies are listed at our 12 Kits of Occasions blog.

I now realize that perhaps my style is CAS because it's quick!  There are a few members of our team who are CAS card-makers, like me, and others who layer just beautifully, so please do visit each and every member, they are sure to please!

But right now?  I'd like to share my cards!

 




I HAD TO sneak in a CAS card!!
 
Just in case you're wondering... here are the Copics I used:
 


Thanks, Jeanne, for your wonderful Kit!  It really was snow much fun!

Jeanne said...

Fantastic array of cards, Michele! Wow, you took the elements and totally ran and sledded with them! How fun! I cannot pick any favorites because it totally wouldn't be fair to the other wonderful cards. Love the colors the card designs and just every little wonderful touch you added. Happy sigh! Thanks for sharing!

Can I just add my OMG!!! what you do with a card is anything but CAS! Too much is happening in each one! Creative genius cas? Better. No favs, all adored. But seriously the first one? Snow guy with the birds? With the snowbanks? On that paper? Nope not gonna do it. No favorites. But the steep sledding bear? OK, maybe the deer tag...

Happy Dance said...

Girl. You have really used all the goodies from Jeanne's kit to the full. All of your cards are amazing, and I especially love the little fishing bear. The ice you made, complete with its edges is crazy cool. I love it!! May have to CASE this one for realzies. The rest of them are gorgeous as well. Love those skates, and the sweet shaker deer card is stunning. Love 'em all!! Bev

Holy moley. Your skill with composition is mind blowing. I can't pick a fave, for sure, but I have favorite moments in EACH of these wicked stylish cards. Just so smart, Michele.

Jeanne J. said...

Are you kidding? You done me proud my friend! And NO!! I would not call your style CAS!!! OMG! You made a frame out of pattern paper for the snow kids (the one with the wood veneer) and I'm counting layers on the snowman with the birds! LOL!! Smiling huge at that big big hill that bear is sledding down! His face is like Ut Oh! That shaker with the snowflakes inside is so elegant ! I dont think there's any thing you can't do! Funny, serious, elegant, cute... you've got it.

Birgit said...

Whaaaaattt??? Oh Michelle, let me pick my jaw up off the floor. Every card is over the top amazing!! I can't pick a favorite either because there's something I LOVE about every one of them. The "downhill at 60" card is so so clever and cute as can be and your CAS card is just stunning!! Love every one of your clever and beautiful cards my friend!

Lots of layers and lots of gorgeousness, these are all so very sweet Michele, LOVE!

Lisa Elton said...

A feast for the eyes!! Look at you go with the layers on the sweet snowman card..those cardinals perched on his hands...GAH!! You really made Jeanne's kit shine. The sliding bear and that sentiment just make me smile. The final card is full of elegance. Oh heck, I love them all!

Kim Heggins said...

Simply beautiful collection of cards Michele...love all your sweet birthday card, just too darn cute and so clever! Your first card with that sweet snowman with that wonderful pair of birds is just fabulous with that snowman paper as background, just genius!

Cat Craig said...

You rocked it as usual Michele. Your love of these kits is quite apparent, and your cards are so much fun.

Barb Ghig said...

Oh my, where do I begin? You never disappoint, Michele...your Copic coloring, layering and pairing of elements is amazing! Not to mention the clever little touches that make your cards so unique! I'm so impressed that you can create such a stunning collection of cards with your kit...you nailed it, my friend!

Sharron said...

You are AMAZING! You've taken Jeanne's kit and made so many creative and clever designs! I'm always thinking "why didn't I see that". Your first card with the patterned background paper is genius, and I adore the snowman with the cardinals. Love the steep hill with the perfect sentiment. And then you mixed papers for a cool design with the sweet little kids. Who else would think of the ice on the fishing pond! And then you end with a charming CAS, neutral colored beauty! WOW!!

Cathy Weber said...

First off...that All downhill from here with the VERY clever use of the bear was my very favorite. I am going to case that card with not a change at all! So cute and smart. I also LOVED the round card with the intricate snowflake die and skates on top. I don't know how you thought of that one! Every card is so different from the next...really well done!

Bobby said...

You saved the best til last, Michele. That shaker is outstanding!! The other cards are so cute and while not your style, beautifully designed and executed.

donna mikasa said...

Love seeing your kit cards! Is it weird that I'm drawn to the almost all white one? CAS perfection!

cm said...

Echoing the praise heaped on your set of GORGEOUS cards! Your talents continue to grow and grow and grow! Love this gallery of WOW!

Anita in France said...

You did a simply splendid job channelling your inner Jeanne ... lovely layering and such sweet little images! A gorgeous collection of loveliness ... that sledding bear caught my eye especially ... goodness, he's on a black diamond slope ... that really is down hill fast!! Hugs, Anita :)

Tracey McNeely said...

Michele so many wonderful and brilliant card designs!! Everything from clean and simple to beautiful layering. I really like how you used some of your own dies to change up what Jeanne sent us--for example the fishing bear, so cute! I had a photo of my Copics that I forgot to include in my post that I have since added. Beautiful collection of cards!

Marybeth said...

My socks just fell off......My gosh girl!!!! You are amazing and so are your cards. The vellum hills over the patterned paper and that clear tag shaker fold card is beyond jaw dropping! I love them all friend and so sorry it too me so long to get here. My dad has been in and out of the hospital .
