12 Kits of Occasions - Boo To You!

Happy Halloween!  It's been pretty quiet around here lately, but that is because cardmaking had to take a major back seat to costume-making.  I can hardly sew, but for some reason I love to tackle Halloween costumes for my little ones.  I finally got everything finished up, and was able to sneak in a few quick minutes to play with this month's Boo To You kit for The 12 Kits of Occasions.  Nancy's fabulous kit was full of fun and as always I was wishing for more time to play. 
This Halloween Hill die from Impression Obsession was my favorite.  A little ink blending on some Bristol Smooth paper, a sentiment die from PTI, and the card was done.  I love that kind of card. :) 
I couldn't waste the negative and as soon as I saw these colors together I thought of Wicked...perfect for my oldest niece who loves musicals and had a Wicked themed cake for her 16th birthday.
Nancy included several Halloween cats from Poppy Stamps.  One of my nieces has revamped a cape three years in a row to be totally different, yet equally awesome costumes.  Naturally this caped kitty needed to go to her.   And while the kitties were out, I made a second card.
I loved all the glittery papers and dies Nancy included in the kit, so I put a bunch together to make this next CAS card. 
And here's the whole lot of them...minus a treat wrap I made that I totally forgot to photograph.  Oops. :) 
Make sure you visit The 12 Kits of Occasions Blog next.  You won't want to miss seeing all the fun projects my teammates made with this fabulous kit.  Have a wonderful week friends!


  1. What a Halloween delight Lindsey!! These are all so much fun. Your background sky on the first card is incredible ~ WOW! And how perfect is the next card where you used the negative! I'll be CASEing some of your brilliant ideas with my leftover bits!!

  2. LOve your Count Cat-ula!!! and love the idea of your nieces re-VamP! Your cards are all so very cute, Lindsey... now why didn't you share those cute little costumes with us? Would love to see them [at my door!] ... xx

  3. Spookily sweet and creepily cute, Lindsey ... what a fabulous collection ... I especially love the first with that gorgeous blended sky, what a treat!! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. You were soooo smart to use the negative of the hill so you could have two! I hope I saved mine. You know I think that background is amazing and love them all!
    Good for you tackling the costumes for the kids, oh how I remember doing that and it feels good after its all said and done. The kids looked adorable by the way.... great job .....

  5. All of your cards are so darling Lindsey! I love how you had a particular person in mind when making each of your cards too. That makes them so personoal and special! Hope your kiddo's had fun in their costumes made with love!

  6. As always, a beautiful array of cards! Love all of that fabulous white space (and the adorable kitties), but the ink blending is just a-mazing too!!
    P.S.- Great job on those costumes for the littles!

  7. I'm a little late getting around but am loving all of your fun designs! Your blended sky is fantastic and perfect with the spooky skyline. Great idea to use the negative with that cool green and black too. Every card is so delightful and loved by the recipients I'm sure. Glad your kiddos had a fun Halloween--the costumes were adorable!!
