Positive Thoughts

With everything that’s going on with the Coronavirus right now we can all use some positive thoughts. That’s exactly what you get in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.

I love this stamp set and it couldn’t be more appropriate right now! Use the images and phrases in these stamps to create a bouquet of affirmation for your friends and family. I used the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper with this stamp set to create some bright and cheery cards.

I needed to take a break from watching the news so I decide to unplug and play in my craft room most of the day on Saturday. It was so much fun! The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper has so many gorgeous floral designs. I will be making more cards using all of them! Here’s a quick video showing each of the different patterns.

Here’s a closer look at each of the cards I created.

For my first card I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base and dressed up the edge of the Old Olive strip with a die from Stitched Be Mine Dies. The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon is so easy to wrap and tie bows! You can also dye it any color you want using Stampin’ Blends!

Purple Posy and Mint Macaron create a beautiful soft color combination. I used the Beautiful Scalloped Linen Ribbon to create the border trim.

My third card uses Old Olive and Daffodil Delight along with the Stitched Be Mine Die and Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon.

The layout of each is the same with just a few subtle differences with ribbon and trim. Here’s the details:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Whisper White layer: 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and 1 1/4 x 4 1/4
  • Add ribbon and trim to DSP strip before adhering to card.
  • Stamp sentiment from Positive Thoughts and punch with 1 1/2 Circle Punch.
  • Cut Circle Die in coordinating color to layer sentiment.
  • Punch scrap in same color cardstock as card base using Label Me Pretty Punch
  • Adhere sentiment layer to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add pearls on eaither side of greeting.
  • Stamp sentiment, fern, and butterfly on Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 for inside of card. 
  • Stamp the front of the envelope to coordinate.

Lily Impressions Card Kit to GO

Since most of us are spending a lot of time at home these days, it gives us the perfect excuse and opportunity to make some cards and use them to spread a little JOY.  I thought I would share one of the cards that was included in my last “Just Stampin’ Card kit” to go.  I made 5 different versions to show the versatility of my card kits.  I create them so that you can use any stamp set you already have to add a sentiment.  All you have to do it stamp and adhere! Everything you need to create is already cut, scored, and ready to assemble.

I am offering a special Lily Impressions Card Kit to Go for $15.  You will receive the pdf tutorial and everything you need to create all 5 of these cards. I want to make it easy for you to be able to spread some cheer to friends, family, neighbors, grocery workers, postal workers, doctors, nurses, etc. (anyone you feel could use a little appreciation or joy right now).  This kit includes everything you need (cardstock, DSP, ribbon, punched flowers, jewels). You just stamp a sentiment and adhere. I package everything you need for each card in the envelopes included with your kit.

To do this, go to paypal.com, sign in or register for an account, click “Send” and fill in my email address (j.stark@myactv.net).

If you have children home from school, making cards together is a great activity to do. Have your child practice addressing the envelopes and writing messages. I found this list of great ideas to help with homeschooling during these stressful times. Feel free to pass it on to others. (*I especially like idea #5!)
