Yes, it's that time of the month again! In case you're new to The 12 Kits of Christmas project, you can check out my original post HERE. You can also check out all of the cards made by the group so far on Pinterest, thanks to Renee!

This month was Jeanne's turn to host, and I think we were all seriously overwhelmed by all of the goodies in our kit! I didn't have as much time to create this month as I would have liked, so I've barely scratched the surface with this kit. I can't wait to see what everyone else created with the beautiful die cuts and detailed stamps Jeanne included!
Before I forget, Jeanne is generously offering up a prize to one commenter this month. You'll have to stop by her blog to get the details, but you can get a sneak peek of the prize on my first card. :)
This was the first card I made, and it came together exactly as I had it pictured. Love when that happens. This gorgeous die cut ornament needed to be the star of the show, so I used a favorite layout, some subtle debossing, and a bit of bling to dress it up.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Pinefeather, Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream)
Patterned paper: Basic Grey (Jovial: Shopkeeper)
Stamp: Serendipity (663D Merry)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Basic Black)
Tools: Serendipity (ornament die), Spellbinders (tag die), Papertrey Ink (music impression plate)
Accessories: Hug Snug (seam binding), Paper Studio (gems)
My second card is a departure from my comfort zone. I don't often cover a card base with patterned paper, but I love this mistletoe pattern. The poinsettias are Copic colored and fussy cut, with a touch of yellow Stickles in the center.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream), Graffix (Gold Foil Board)
Patterned paper: Basic Grey (Jovial: Winter Garden)
Stamps: Serendipity (673K Large Poinsettia), Papertrey Ink (Wreath for all Seasons)
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Copic markers
Tool: Cheery Lynn (Holly Flourish die)
Other: Ranger (Stickles)
Last is a very simple design with a great, detailed Santa image. I simple cut an oval window in the patterned paper to frame the image, trimmed a sentiment strip, and added some stitching.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream)
Patterned paper: Basic Grey (Jovial: Merry Maker)
Stamps: Serendipity (939E Santa, 665C Happy Holidays 2)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Basic Black), Copic markers, Papertrey Ink (Chamomile tea dye)

I have a few more ideas for this kit. Now if I can just find the time!
