Hello and Welcome! Hopefully still going strong with the social distancing and staying healthy!
One of the positive things about been forced to stay inside for me has been able to play with some of the goodies I have on my ever growing stash of supplies. A while ago I shared some of the cards I created using the February 2020 SCT Sampler Kit and I thought I would post a blog on the kit. This is a small and affordable kit that brings you some very cute and fun supplies from different companies.
For more information click here on how to subscribe and pricing options for this kit. I mostly used all the supplies in the kit and from my stash I added epoxy mini hearts, word stickers, vellum paper and some Nuvo crystal drops. As with any kits always look through your stash for inks, dies and embellishments to enhance your card making.
For all the cards I like to use a nice simple rectangular frame die to cut my paper layers, this adds elegance and a finished look to the card.
The card above was all about layering all the papers to complement my focal point which is the cute envelope ephemera from the kit.
For this next card I just added the little hearts, twine and word stickers from my stash and just layer. I normally layer all my pieces before adhering and take a picture so that I know how I to assemble my card. I did use some foam adhesive tape to add dimension.
I wasn’t too sure about this next card bot is growing on me, lol. I just cut small strips of paper out of the scraps from the kit and made mini envelopes. To embellish them I just added the mini hearts. The background is from an old embossing folder and the acrylic word “love” included in the kit.
I had a lot of fun and inspiration with this kit. The colors were bright and fun and really led themselves for some serious Spring vibe. This next card was also a very simple and quick card to create. The background is pattern paper and the sentiment and embellishments are all puffy stickers included in the kit. How easy can it be? 🙂
Give me some paper and scissors I’ll go to town with the cutting and layering! This next card is pretty simple to assemble with any papers and stickers in your stash. The advantage of kits is that someone else does all the color coordination for you and all you have to do is find interesting layouts and embellishments to make fun cards.
While most kits bring cards stock for your base this one does not. Which for me is no problem since I have no shortage in card stock, lol. I normally buy 110 pound card stock to use for all my card bases and some of the brands I use are Neenah, Recollections, SSS and Stampin’up.
For this next two cards I again did more layering with the pattern papers and ephemera. Just have fun playing with the papers, and all the embellishments you have at hand.
Well I hope you enjoyed looking at these cards and found a little inspiration. Remember that paper can be a great source of inspiration and playing with layouts is like picking pieces of clothing to assemble an outfit!
Take care and please stay healthy!
