A Birthday to Die (Cut) for...

A Birthday to Die (Cut) for...


 


 It's time for the 12 Kits of Occasions June edition!
I can't believe that we are already half way through the year and another kit. Joyce Mehrberg sent all of us a fabulous kit full of amazing-ness! So many die cuts to create fun birthday themed cards and projects! She outdid herself and must have a sore arm from all that cranking! Thank you Joyce!

Here are the projects I created with this month's kit!


Detail with Wink of Stella on the flames:




I was out of town when I created this card and did not have any a craft mat, distress ink or a paint brush with me. I did however have a small cellophane bag, Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores Dye Ink cube and some Qtips! I smooshed some ink on to the cellophane bag, added some water to it and then used a Qtip as my paint brush to paint the layers of the circle sentiment. Then I flicked some of the watercolour on the card panel with the Qtip. Sometimes we have to make do with what we have--lol






Head over to the 12 Kits blog if you have t been there to see what the team has done this month!
Thank you Joyce for a fantastic kit!!
