Encouragement cards for your loved ones

Kylie Team Blog Hop

Have you been making Encouragement cards for your loved ones? With everything going on in the world I truly believe in the power of our cards and in the power they have when we mail them to our loved ones.. 

We never know what people are going thru, but just the thought of a card bringing joy or a smile in a heavy day is just priceless. 

You could be changing many people’s day just by letting them know you are thinking of them and that you loved them. So as I am writing this to you, I want to encourage you to make some cards just to let those special people know that you are thinking of them. 

And with this in mind, I want to share with you a few card ideas you can make. And even better, I am sharing with you a few tips for your card making. 

Also I want to make sure you know that today I am participating in a Blog hop with an amazing group of demonstrators around the world. Make sure you visit all participating blogs as you will get lots and lots of inspiration.  😉

So without further ado, let’s get started! 

Encouragement Cards for Your Loved Ones 

So for these encouragement cards I wanted to use the Dove of Hope Bundle as well as the Ridiculously Awesome Stamp set, which has my favorite sentiment in the whole catalog.. 

Yes, you are reading this well 😊 This sentiment has become my favorite sentiment ever since this stamp set got released with the annual catalog. Mainly because it goes so well for so many occasions that we are going thru.

For instance right now that the whole world is still shut down and not back to normal a lot of us can feel a bit down.. and this sentiment could let us get back Hope that everything will be fine.  

Or there are times you doubt yourself for anything or everything, and this sentiment could remind you that you can do anything if you let your Faith be bigger than your fears!

Like I said, I believe this sentiment has so much power that I knew I wanted to create a full set of cards just for this sentiment alone! And because to me this sentiment brings back Hope, I thought It would pair perfectly with the Dove of Hope bundle. Specifically the coordinated Detailed Dove Dies.. Don’t you think?

The Color Combination

  For these cards, I wanted a color combination that would bring peace and comfort and not being too bright and cheerful. And when I though of the Dove of Hope I thought that having light shade colors would be perfect!  Don’t you agree?

So here you have it! 

 

The Sketches and Other Details 

On this section you will get the sketches and more details on how to make these beautiful Encouragement cards for your love ones!! And at the end I included the video tutorial as well. 

I am a visual person and know that sometimes it is easier to watch other how a card is made than reading instructions.. So hope this helps.

Handmade Card #1 

sketches to play       Encouragement Cards for Your Loved Ones 

As you can see on this card, I used a very simple sketch. However I feel like this type of sketches opens up to too many possibilities. Mainly because you can add anything you like! 

The white area just indicates a background and this is where you creativity gets in action. You could add:

  • Designer Series Paper a.k.a. patterned paper
  • A stamped background 
  • Watercolor background – like I did in this first card
  • An sponged background – like in my next card
  • Die cuts 
  • A Combination of any of these options! the list is endless 😉

So just let your creativity flow and see where it takes you. For me I knew I wanted to make a background and I decided to do a watercolor swoosh with the water painters.  You could see how I made this on the video tutorial below. 

One tip I would like to share with this card, is to add adhesive sheets on the whisper white from which you would cut the detailed wings. This will help you glue the wings super easy. You could also use the Fine Tip glue pen as well, but I think that the adhesive sheets would be way easier.

Also when you run the die for the detailed wings, do one with the adhesive sheet facing up, and one facing down. That way you can have the wings’s adhesive on the right side for this Dove. 

And finally for the sentiment, I colored the area I wanted to stamp with a marker, and stamp it, then I clean the stamp up and colored the next area I wanted to stamp. This trick will help you get even more looks on your sentiments. 

Also notice, that I did not stamp the word Faith, mainly because I wanted to highlight that word by die cutting it with the Playful Alphabet dies. I added a piece of Foam adhesive sheet to the pool party card stock and run it thru my die cut machine. This made the letters to have dimension and adhesive all at once!! Give it a try! you will love it!! 

Handmade Card #2

For this second card, It is very similar to the previous card, however this time for the background I decided I wanted to stamp a cloudy sky.

This background used a template you can make with the Happy Dies! from the So much Happy Bundle! I have made several of these cloudy skies and I don’t get tired of it!! It looks really good.. And believe me it is super easy to make.. 

You can watch the video tutorial to see how you can make this background if you are interested. 

For the sentiment, I pretty much did what I explained on the first card, however, I just change placement 😁

Handmade Card #3

sketches to play       Encouragement Cards for Your Loved Ones 

And for this final card, this follows as well a very simple sketch as well!

A few tips to share is to punch the pool party layer close to the right end of the card stock, as I was a bit challenging to fit the dove on the rest of the area, so I would suggest to layer the dove on top to see the space you need and then punch the circle.

Once you have punched out the circle, layer it on top of the Whisper White and stamp the sentiment where the Whisper White shows, that way you have perfect placement of the sentiment. 

As I have been mentioning, make sure you watch the video Tutorial below as you will see exactly how I made thee cards. I know this will help to clear some questions.. but if after seeing the tutorial, you still have questions, let me know. I will be happy to help you 😁

Cute Handmade Birthday Card for a Friend

Color Combo Blog Hop banner

Want to learn how to make a cute handmade Birthday card for a friend? then keep reading my friend as today I am sharing with you a super cute Handmade Birthday card that you can customize with tons of little critters like the one I used in mine. 

And as you can see I am participating in the monthly colour combo blog hop to challenge myself how to use their color combination into a handmade card!

So Let’s get started!! 

How to make a cute Handmade Birthday Card for a Friend

So as I mentioned above, today I am participating into this blog hop to challenge myself to use the color combination of the month which you can see below 

And honestly this is how I started brainstorming how to make my card or what to use for this Birthday handmade card, which I am not going to lie, sometimes I found this a bit more challenging than starting with the products in mind.. 

You see, I almost always try to pick the products and then from those products I pick the colors.. So you can see that going the opposite way can be challenging for my mind LOL. However I love it, because it forces me to look at things differently and I feel like I actually stretch my mind and my creativity.. And at the end of the day this always helps you to grow new skills! 

So always try something different that challenges you, as this always helps you grow in other ways.. and I mean this not only for your card making but for everything in life! 😉

Anyway, back to my card.. I first thought about using flowers (I think I always want to go that route!). However, I remembered I got this cute new set from the August-December catalog (a.k.a. Winter or Holiday Catalog) that can make cute little critters. And this is when the light bulb went on! Why not using the soft suede for a little critter and use the other colors as highlights. Why not?

After I had picked up the little critter, I looked for paper and embellishments in the other colors from this color combo. I realized I had a spool of ribbon in Mint Macaroon. This got me thinking about using this color as the highlight and the Rich Razzleberry as the color for my card base. 

So here is the card!! tah-dah!! what do you think??? 

Cute Handmade Birthday Card for a Friend

 

The Sketch & Other Details 

sketches to play

Once I knew which products I was going to use for this card, I then looked for a sketch.

If you have been following me for a while, you know how much I love using a sketch. I strongly believe that this makes things so easy when you are coming up with ideas for your cards.

One think I always suggest is to start with an easy and simple sketch, that way you don’t get overwhelmed by thinking how to substitute the elements on the sketch. 

As far as the card itself, I made the little beaver using the Menagerie Mix-up stamp set, and if you look in to the details you will see that his cheeks are colored as well as his scarf. 

Close up on this cute little critter

I used Flirty Flamingo – dark shade from the Stampin’ Blends  to color his cheek. And the Dark shade of the Mint Macaroon to color his scarf.  I think this added a little bit more of personality to the beaver. Don’t you think?

One tip to assemble the beaver was to stamp, color and cut out all the pieces using the dies, and then glue all the pieces using the Glue Dots. 

When you are ready to add the beaver to the card, you can use dimensionals to add more dimension to it!!  

The best think of the Menagerie Mix up bundle is that you can create so many critters that you can customize the card to many options. 

And I am also thinking that these little critters can go perfect for like Baby Shower cards, or kids cards! so the possibilities are endless for sure!! 

If you are enjoying colors combination challenges and want another color combo to play, you can see the Color Combination from July 2020 here as well as the card that I made using it! 

The Blog Hop 

As mentioned above, I am participating on a blog hop where all participants will be sharing their projects using these colors!! I am really curious to see all their great creations!! As I know they always come up with so many ideas that keeps me inspired.

Easy Handmade Birthday Card

Blog hop banner - JOY of stamps August 2020On today’s post I will be sharing an easy Handmade Birthday card that you can make in no time.  And as you are seeing on the banner this post is part of the Joy of Stamps – Fonts-amental Blog hop.

On this blog hop we will be sharing projects with sentiments or fonts that we love! I know you will love seeing all the participating blogs as you will get lots of inspiration for your card making projects. 

So make sure you visit all the blogs participating in this hop!  

How to make an Easy Handmade Birthday Card 

For today’s card I wanted to go with an easy Birthday handmade card mainly because we usually need Birthday cards all the time, after all we all have birthdays right?

Anyway As you can see below my card is monochromatic, which made everything even simpler! and it also makes it easy to customize it with different colors..

For instance you can make this card using the favorite color of the recipient of your card, or perhaps you want to use the birthstone color to go with the card! or you could simple do the cards in the color of card stock you have the most in your stash! so you can see where the options are limitless. 😉

Easy handmade Birthday Card to make

 

The sketch and other details 

sketches to playYou can see on the left the sketch that I used as inspiration. This is honestly one of the things that I do the most and I strongly believe makes my card making super easy and very enjoyable. 

I can come up with so many ideas for cards just by using simple sketches. So if you ever feel like you struggle with inspiration, give it a try. You will see how this helps you with ideas! 

For the bottom side of the card  I used a wide brush tip water painter and just painted the lines across that section of the paper. You can see these are not perfect and not straight, so do not over think it. I think this is actually one of the things that add a little flair to the card.  Please note that this is regular whisper white card stock, not watercolor paper, in case you were wondering. 

Once the strips dried, I added the lines with the alcohol marker. Again this was free hand, so they are are not straight. Please do not over think it, the faster you do them the better they look.. I promise you. 😉 

If you want to see another example of making this stripy background technique, check this other card! This is another easy card, and you can see how mixing and matching with other colors make the stripes look even more interesting..

For the top of the card I added a stamped roses with Navy Blue and then added Wink of Stella to the flowers, this adds a shimmery look that we all love!! I added also the sentiment on the same color.

Finally I added rhinestones and the ribbon/bow that I had previously colored with the alcohol markers.. I love this trick as I can get embellishments in any color that I need. And if you use Stampin’ Up! blends (alcohol markers) then you will have all elements to color coordinate beautifully, as all their products color coordinate, making it even easier when it comes to color combinations, as you will have everything from ink, paper, embellishments in the same tones. Give it a try and let me know how you like it..

Three Beautiful Handmade cards for your friends

Want to learn how to easy make beautiful handmade cards for your friends? if so keep reading as today I will be sharing with you an easy way to make these beautiful handmade cards..

So let’s get started!!

How to make Beautiful handmade cards for your friends

If you have been following me for a while, you know I love to use a set of products to come up with cards ideas only using those elements. And it is using this concept that helped me to make these handmade cards.

You see, when you select just a few set of products, you began to focus more and then the ideas flow even better. This is because you get less distracted or overwhelmed on how to even start or what to use for your cards. In fact you kind of fuel your creativity by challenging yourself to just stick to those products and nothing more.

Beautiful Handmade cards for your friends

But first let me share with you the following process to help you create beautiful handmade cards for your friends every single time!

The Process to make Easy Handmade Cards

The following process is the one I created to help me design cards super easy!

  • Select a few products that coordinate. I would recommend at least the following
    • A stamp set or die set that can stand by itself
    • a label die set – optional
    • Designer Series Paper  a.k.a. patterned paper
    • Color coordinated cardstock
    • Embellishments – I try to pick a ribbon and maybe some sort of gems
  • Select the Color Combination you want to use
    • Pick which color you want to use for the card base and which color you wan to use as a highlight
  • Select a sketch to follow
    • Simpler sketches are usually best as these are easier to substitute with the products you have selected
  • Have fun and create your card

Below you can see more information about how the cards I am showcasing today!

The Color Combination

As usual I got inspiration from the designer series paper to get the color combination for my cards. the only ones that were not included in the DSP were the greens, however since the Peony dies had leaves I decided to pair my color combo with a soft combination of greens that I think work really nice.

Sketches and other details

Below you will see the sketch that I used for each of these cards as well as other details to make it easy for your to put together. Also below you will find the Video tutorial where you will see how you can make these cards step by step.

Handmade Card #1

sketches to play       Beautiful Handmade cards for your friends

For all my cards I actually focused on the die set rather than a stamp set. I loved the Peony dies so much, and I thought these large flowers would be perfect as the focal point for all the cards.

You could actually change this to a large stamped image, or even a large cut out image from patterned paper, for example.

Also note that in the sketch I changed the circle for the flower. Always think how you can use the sketch to fit what you want to use, like in this case I changed the shape.

Handmade Card #2

sketches to play       Beautiful Handmade cards for your friends

This second card follows as well an easy sketch and similar to the last card I changed the circle for the peony.

Also in this card,  I used the designer series paper as the background of the card. This will show you again how you can change parts of a sketch. For instance you can substitute elements on the sketch with patterned paper, or you can use embossed card stock as well. This are just a few alternatives of changes you can make to the sketches. 

Handmade Card #3

sketches to play       Beautiful Handmade cards for your friends

And this final card pretty much follows the same things I discussed in the previous card details.  Like I said, once you have the sketches and the products you want to use, it comes really easy to put the cards together.. I promise you, follow the process and you will see how easy it is to make Beautiful handmade cards for your friends!

If you want additional cards for inspiration following these steps, make sure you check this post, where you can see how I created three cheerful handmade cards, or you can check this other post where I share with you how you can change the sketches and make fun folds or even a pop up card!! 

The Video Tutorial

As promised you can see below the video tutorial to see how to put all these cards together!! I show how to put together those Peony flowers without any trouble.. so make sure you watch it!!

How to make handmade cards with patterned paper

Are you looking for ideas on how to make handmade cards with patterned paper? Maybe you have lots of patterned paper in your craft room that you have not had the courage to cut? or perhaps you have scraps of patterned paper left from a previous project and need ideas to use them! If any of these are you, then continue reading this post, as today I will share with you a few tips to use your patterned paper to make handmade cards!

So let’s get started! 

Handmade Cards with Patterned Paper 

First of all, you will need to pick a pack of patterned paper that you like a lot, and see what is that you like about it.

  • Is it the colors on it? or
  • the images on it?

This will help you define how you will use this paper. For instance, if you like the colors then you can use them as the color combination for your handmade cards. And if it is the images on it, you can even see if you can cut them out and use them as the focal point in your cards or as embellishments. This really makes it easy to incorporate the paper into your cards. 

In my case, for these cards, I did not have images to cut out, however I absolutely loved the color combination on it, so I decided to use it as the color combo for my projects as you are seeing in the picture below. 

how to make handmade cards using patterned paper

If you are interested in seeing examples of how to use images from the patterned paper then:

  • check this post to see how you can use the images as an embellishment for your card, or
  • this other post to see how you can use the images as the focal point 

Because there wasn’t images to use in my patterned paper, I used the images from the “Celebrate Sunflowers” for my cards. So the next step after picking the paper to use, is to select the stamp set to coordinate. 

If you use a suite from Stampin’ Up! this step is easy as you can select the paper and the stamp set from the same suite. In this particular case I actually decided to use a different set from a different suite.  So never think that you cannot mix and match!  

The Color Combo 

As mentioned before, from the patterned paper I got the inspiration for my cards which includes the colors below.  Note that the paper also had Flirty Flamingo as well, however, I did not use that one on the color combination. 

When you are picking colors for your color combination, start with fewer colors and as you are designing you can add highlight colors to enhance them.. In my case I could have used a little of Flirty Flamingo.  

Another thing to note, is that it is usually easier to start with fewer colors rather than with every single color in the patterned paper, and only if you need to add another color. The designing process goes much more smoother when you focus in less colors. 

So just play with the colors.

Sketches and other details

Once you have selected the paper to use and the stamp set for your cards, then the next step is to use sketches! this is the best way to come up with card ideas in no time! Below I am sharing the sketches for these cards as well as other details. 

Handmade Card #1 

sketches to play      how to make handmade cards using patterned paper

For all the cards that I am showing in this post, I colored the sunflowers using the same colors and the same technique. If you are interested in how to color them, I added a video tutorial at the end of this post for you to see step by step. 

This first card follows an easy sketch but I changed it for a fun fold.  You can see that this fun fold in particular is easy to incorporate with any sketch. 

The tip on this card that I want to share with you, is that because of the way this card open and closes, it is best to glue the inside of the card first, that way you can make sure that the front covers the inside panel (which is where you would write your message) 

Handmade Card #2

sketches to play      how to make handmade cards using patterned paper

This second card is also super easy to make, this would be perfect for when you have smaller left over scraps of paper! You just mat them with coordinated cardstock and glue them to your card, and voila! you have a card!!  That simple!

Also note that for all these cards I am coloring my ribbon with alcohol markers! This is a great tip to have color coordinated embellishments in any color that you need!! I love doing that.. So the key thing is to have a neutral ribbon or embellishment that you can color with the Stampin’ Blends.  

A few good examples of this are:

  • Metallic Edge Ribbon or any other White or Off white ribbon 
  • Clear Rhinestones
  • Clear Epoxy Droplets
  • Pearls

Always have some neutral embellishments on hand as these will be perfect for any project!!! 

Handmade Cards #3 

sketches to play       how to make handmade cards using patterned paper 

This final card is as well a fun fold and it follows a very similar layout as the first card, the only difference on this card is the orientation of the fun fold! 

Which takes me to my next tip!! Always play with the orientation of the layouts!! I promise you will get lots of new looks just by changing the orientation, in this case this fun fold opens and goes up and down, where the first card open from right side to left side!! Pretty fun huh!  

The Video Tutorial 

As mentioned previously, below is the video tutorial where you will be able to see how to make these cards from start to end. I share the dimensions and go step by step on how to color these sunflowers with alcohol markers as well as how to make the fun fold cards shown in this post. I also go over the inks and colors I use.

Hope you enjoy it.. and if you have any question, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!! I will be more than happy to help you
