Quick and Easy Card Set

1 Comment

I love making cards. I especially love creating a set of quick and easy cards that can be used for a variety of purposes. When I got this month’s kits and started looking at all of the beautiful products, I was immediately drawn to the tags and knew I wanted to create a card set using them.

When I make a set of cards I usually like to come up with a design theme and choose several products to work with throughout the set. For these cards I knew I wanted to use the tags. I also pulled out the epoxy stickers and chipboard from the main kit. I also loved the washi from the Traveler’s Notebook kit.

The tags with the pop out letters were a lot of fun to use. I layered them onto another tag to give a contrasting look.

Each of the cards included chipboard, epoxy stickers and the rubber sentiment strips. I also added washi to the bottom of the tags. While the cards are each unique, they have a common look to them.

I was able to create this set in less than 30 minutes. Now I have a fun group of cards that I can pull out at moment’s notice, or give away as a gift.

The tags in the main kit could certainly be used on their own, but served as the perfect background for these cards!

Greeting Card Trio

0 Comments

Hi everyone! I’m here to share with you a trio of greeting cards created with the June kits.

The first card was inspired by the beach themed die-cuts included in this month’s Planner kit. When I saw them, I decided to create a shaker card:

I mixed die-cuts, puffy stickers and sequins and just put them into one of the cello bags from the kit (packaging for the stickers and more). I machine stitched around the bag and paper (hidden by the card stock ring) but you can also glue it all round. I also added a circle of patterned paper on the inside:

Every month I find myself making cards with the 3×4 cards from the Life Pages kit and this month was no exception…

For this one, I grabbed the ice-cream card and found a matching die-cut in the Planner kit. I love the look of the “Happy” sticker elevated with some foam:

My third and last card for today is also based on a card from the Life Pages kit and might be the simplest one to make:

I layered my pineapple card with a piece of patterned paper and a cut-up 4×6 PL card. I also added a couple of puffy stickers to give more depth and a die-cut banner to add interest to the top corner.

 

Here’s one last look at all three cards:

When you play with your kit(s), remember that cards are a fun option too! Happy crafting!

Layout and card with June Main Kit

2 Comments

Hello dear friends, welcome to the GB blog today. It’s me, Sandra , and I want to share two projects – a large photo layout and a card – that I made with the June Main Kit. The kit comes with awesome embellishments including rubber shapes, chipboard stickers and die cuts. For the first photo I used a large photo and different embellishments.

I used the acrylic stamp from the kit for the journaling. I think the stamp is really cool. You can add ‘details’, date and place and check boxes for the weather.

The second project I want to share is a love-themed card.

 I used white cardstock and patterned paper for the base and added the ‘love’ tag and some other embellishments. Underneath the love tag, I used white cardstock and a washi strip to make the tag look more interesting.

 I’m hoping you like my inspiration. Have fun creating with your June kits!
