Songs of the South - March '15



It's the last day of the month and that means it's time for the 12 Kits of Occasions!

This month Marybeth was our hostess. She created a fabulous kit with beautiful papers, stamped images and die cuts. I easily pulled together 5 cards. The colours of red, black and kraft were definitely different for me, but they were so much fun to use! So lets get on with the projects...

This was the first card I made as soon as we got our kits, that banner die is fabulous!

Drooling over that cupcake with all the layers and ribbon! GORGEOUS! And the carrots on the black background is stunning! Love the banner too with the thanks and the little twine bow. I see layers on every single one Tracey!! It makes them look rich and elegant - one of those things you want to pick up and feel the quality of.

Beautiful cards, Tracey! These colors definitely make some striking creations! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Shannon McComb said...

Wow, all your projects are fantastic!! Love the colors.
Just curious how the 12 kits of occasions work? The design team gets a kit with certain projects and you create a card them?
I just love the supplies and was curious:p :)

Anita in France said...

Such gorgeousness, Tracey ... these are all fantastic ... I especially love the first with that gorgeous thanks banner ... and the last, that cupcake is just so yummy! Hugs, Anita :)

Barb Ghig said...

Every one of your cards are just perfect, Tracey! When I grow up, I want to create cards just like you :) Love them all to pieces!

Joyce said...

Love all these, Tracey. You sure make it look quick and easy, that's for sure. Amazing way to stack up those banners on the first card and your second card just makes me smile.

Kim Heggins said...

Gorgeous cards Tracey...simply gorgeous! Love them all so very happy that I have left overs (one of the best parts of the kits).Your sweet cupcake card just amazing and I love how you decorated it to match the rest of the kit...you are so incredible. And your carrot card, just fabulous and so clever to use the gold embossing...But your first card is my favorite...what a wonderful way to say thank you!

Lisa said...

Oh WOW these are ALL so pretty Tracey! Love the gingham with the rooster, but the cupcake is my fave!

Jinny Newlin said...

What a gorgeous lineup! Love the palette, and you're so right about that banner on the first one. Yum!

Sharron said...

Fabulous designs, Tracey! Love the layering on the first card and your gingham framed rooster! He seems to be everyone's favorite. I think I just saw a similar one at someone else's house a few minutes ago--giggle!! Love your gorgeous designs with the black--so striking!

Hazel Hodgkins said...

Swooning over this entire kit. Again. Tracey! Love how you have linked these cards to existing Challeges too. I can't pick between the rooster, cupcake or CTS as my overall favourite. This colour palette is to die for and I am so inspired with what you have done with it.

Jill Norwood said...

Tracey these are all fabulous! Love the cupcake card for the Fusion challenge! You always inspire! :)

artful-notions said...

OK, I'm with Jeanne, scrolling through these beauties, stopped at the cupcake and proceeded to crave! Gorgeous all!

Marybeth said...

Tracey you did an amazing job with this kit, and I loved the very first one you posted. I love them all! I am so happy it was easy for you. I know the colors are different. Love each bold and crisp card you created and the cupcake is a showstopper!

Cathy Weber said...

I loved that banner too Tracey...and your rooster card put a smile on my face. My favorite was the cute cupcake card...and of course the grand finale view on the windowsill!

JD/ Jill said...

All pretty cards! My favorite has to be the first one! I like how you added the banner!

Lyndal said...

Super gorgeous cupcake stand Tracey! So glad you joined in the fun @ FUSION! Hope to see you again soon :)

Michelle said...

Wow! These cards are all amazing! I am especially in love with the carrot card, it's really striking. I'm loving what you ladies have done with this month's kit. All so beautiful!

Lindsey said...

Tracey, do you know the book "You're All My Favorites"? In the story each little bear is told he is the most perfect first little bear ever born and the next is the most perfect second little bear....you get the idea. Well, I feel the same way about your cards. Each and every one is perfect and they are all my favorites! I will be CASEing as many as I possibly can with my leftover supplies and I'm half tempted to take apart some of the ones I made so I can CASE them all. ;)
PS I ADORE seeing your cards all lined up in a row. It's always my favorite picture. :)

Katie Ann Brooks said...

these are all super fun Tracey! I love your Fusion card the best! Thanks for joining us at Fusion!

Fab u lous! Every card uses your CAS style with different colors than you usually use - colors I like BTW.

Lesley said...
