June 2012 - Four of a Kind Challenge

Can you believe it has already been a month since out last challenge??? Time sure does fly faster the older you get. Each month one of the four of us, Cathy - Empty Nest Crafter, Joyce - Cards-by-the-Sea, Renee - It's A Patchwork Life and myself plays hostess and kit maker and mails out the same to kit to everyone and then we use those supplies to make cards or projects.  It is always amazing how different they are all for each other with using the same supplies.  There have been a few times that cards made that have been almost identical too.  This month I am the hostess and I decided to pull out some stamps that have not seen too much love.  PTI's Fruit Fusion are 6 sets of different fruit (apples, cherries, watermelon, pears, grapes and strawberries) and patterned paper to coordinate.  I only have three of the fruits that were released, apples, grapes and cherries, so those are the stamps I used for my kits.

Supply Kit

I found these cute little Mary Engelbreit tins in the dollar bins at Target and when I saw spring and planting on them I thought this would be the perfect way to send off the dies, buttons and ribbon.  So here are my cards, I made six and still have plenty of supplies left over for another challenge later in the year.  Be sure to check out all of the creations on all four blogs, links are listed below the photos.  Thanks for taking a peek!

  3. Kim what a super kit you put together. I so love Fruit Fusion and those amazing papers. Your cards are all so 'sweet' and your designs well thought out!

  4. I juat love the multi-colored rhinestones on the grapes! They're amazing! You have many so many lovely cards!

  5. Oh my goodness. Look at what you did with your fabulous kit. I have to say that I love all your cards, and I have so many ideas for casing. This was such a wonderful kit, and I had such fun making my cards, but there were a few things I just had no ideas for--that picket fence really stumped me, and now I know what to do! I love all of your cards, but if I have to pick favorites, I'd say those glittery grapes are really incredible, and I adore the apples all strung up like that. Great job this month creating our kit, and creating some masterpieces with it.

  6. Wonderful kit, Kim, and I just adore all your cards! The first one is my favorite but they are all so wonderful! Love the string of apples and the sparkly grapes! It's always such fun to see what you all make each month.

  7. What a fun kit you sent out Kim. You did a wonderful job on all the cards you made. The one with the bling is sweet. Love the first one and the one with the banner of fruit! Great jobb with the kit and your cards,Kim

  8. CA-UTENESS!!!! What a great kit, Kim! So those apples on the banner...genius! I love the layout of the card with the fence, and those rhinestone grapes are so fancy! Just love it all, Kim :)

  9. All of these are adorable, Kim! This looks like such a fun kit. My favorite is the apple banner!
