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!

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.

Valentine’s For Classroom or Workplace

By Cards

Hi all,

I’m just about wrapping up on all my Valentine’s Day cards for the week but wanted to share the last few card designs I created. It’s been a year of puns for the most part. As you may have noticed I’ve created quite a number of cards with silly/goofy sentiments that kids are getting a good laugh out of. So I wanted to create one more set of pun cards that are more of a boy theme (but honestly, a girl could totally love these)!

These robots are created with multiple layers of vellum and have a TON of blingy details. They are also mounted up on some solid foam dimensional. My inner card-maker would love to have hidden the foam tape so it’s not so easily visible, however, I feel like kids would LOVE the opportunity to lift these bad boys off the card and stick ’em to something else. So I added a bit of tape to the backs for such a scenario.il_570xN.725068043_as6u

Here’s the inside. I added a to/from line for kids to fill out. I love a bit of personal touch to any card.

Next, I wanted to create a quick set of workplace, adult-friendly cards. These are probably my favorite of all my Valentine’s day cards. There’s just something about chalkboard art & kraft brown paper that I love. I added a pop of color by creating coordinating red envelopes.

I hope you all have been inspired to create some fun little cards or treats for your loved ones!
