You can never have too many birthday cards! – part 2

This weekend I was able to make 10 additional cards for my 6×6 paper pad challenge. I think I might still be able to make a few more cards with this paper pad since I have a some pieces left. I also decided to make a video to show you how I make my cards. I usually start with a card sketch that I find on Pinterest and then I choose my paper and stamps. Making cards is not hard and it helps me relax so I highly recommend it. If you have any questions about where to start, just send me a message.

Here are the cards I made this past week. What do you think of the color combination?

I hope you have a great day!

You can never have too many birthday cards!

I had lost my motivation to make cards so it has been a while since I have gone into my craft room. I guess I had too many things going on that I just didn’t have the energy or motivation. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest hoping it would bring my creativity back, but it didn’t.

So, what do you do when you lose inspiration doing the thing you used to love the most? The answer for me was to go into my craft room and challenge myself. I decided I wouldn’t buy any new supplies until I used most of the supplies I already have. I also had some suggestions to start making cards to send to friends and family (I usually make cards for my family on their birthdays and sell the rest at craft fairs) during this time. Yes, that actually worked! I have my motivation back and I cannot wait to start mailing my cards.

The first thing I did was grab an old 6 x 6 paper pad, a few stamps and just started making cards. I actually challenged myself to see how many cards I could make with that paper pad.The theme for this set of cards is birthday, which is perfect for this challenge because you can never have too many birthday cards! I did use some card sketches for the layouts, and you can find them on my Pinterest board. So far I have been able to make 20 cards using this 6 x 6 paper pad. I still have some paper left and plan to make a few more cards, but I just couldn’t wait to share them with you. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog to get a notification when I post the rest of the cards.

Here are pictures of the cards I made. Which one is your favorite? Leave a comment below.

Hello,

While I patiently wait to place my preorder for the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog, I have decided to make a few cards.

Fall is my favorite season so I decided to make some Fall cards. I really love all the Fall colors and that’s where I got my inspiration from.

I didn’t use any DSP (designer series paper) for my cards. Instead, I used my ink pads to create a “Fall” background and then I cut out my leaves using the Seasonal Layers dies.

I cut out a lot of leaves, but only used a few for my cards since I will be using the rest in other cards/projects.

Here are the supplies and measurements:

  • Card base: thick whisper white cardstock (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).
  • Mossy meadow cardstock (5 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)
  • Blackberry bliss cardstock (5 1/8″ x 3 1/4″)
  • Early espresso cardstock (5 1/8″ x 3 1/4″)
  • Painted Harvest photopolymer stamp set
  • Woodland embossing folder
  • Whisper white cardstock
  • Stitched shapes dies (ovals)
  • Ink: crushed curry, pumpkin pie, cherry cobbler, mossy meadow, early espresso, blackberry bliss, rich razzleberry
  • Stamping sponges
  • Snail adhesive
  • Stampin’ dimensionals

Here is a picture of the cards, I made 2 of each.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!
