Kit to Cards featuring Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit

By Cards

Hi all,

For this project, I wanted to challenge myself into using a good portion of a card kit to see just how many cards I could make. I have been a long time subscriber to the Simon Says Stamp card kit and love the quality of products they include in those kits. I wanted to dive into this month’s kit and create some cards to share with you. As I state in the video, there are a TON of supplies left over and this is just a few of the cards I created. Working with a kit is great in that you really don’t have to worry about coordinating colors and patterns — that part is already done for you!

You may wonder how long it took me to create these cards? I created these over the course of 3 days and had about 6 hours of footage to work through. A majority of that time was spent brainstorming, and clearly, I have edited that down to a shorter video for you!

Here’s a look at 10 cards I made. Enjoy!

Boxed Mini Cards featuring Altenew Stamp Layering

Hi all,

I recently purchased a beautiful set of stamps from Altenew. I am in love with this company for the reason that many of their stamp sets are layering stamps. When you add various hues together, you achieve these beautiful dimensional images!

Here’s a quick glance a boxed set I created. I made 10 mini cards and 10 envelopes to match (they are under the stack in the box).

The sentiment is a mini stamp from a Simon Says Stamp collection.

Folding Card Ideas – 3 Fold Card

By Cards

Hi All,

I’m back with another card idea for you. This one is inspired by a book I received called “Folding Card Ideas (I believe you can find the book on Amazon). Although this  book is jam packed with card ideas & drawings, there are little to no instructions on how to create the cards. So I put together a little card sketch of this one & guide you through the assembly.

Here’s the finished look.
