January's Kids Card Kit

This month for the kids card kit we are looking ahead to Valentines Day!
Each kit will contain all the pieces required to make the cards in the pictures plus envelopes so that the cards can be mailed or given to someone special. 
Please feel free to change up the cards any way you feel like. The pictures are just an example of how the cards can go together, add anything you may have at home to the cards or alter the pieces anyway you like :).

Pretty Wreath Card

It has been a very cold and snowy January here and we're only half way through it. I hate this extreme cold but I do love seeing everything sparkle and shine. I just love how the trees look all layered in sparkly pretty! 
After my walk this morning seeing all this beauty I felt inspired to create but was to tired today to paint (which is what I had been planning to do). 
I did get myself down to my craft room and I had a very enjoyable afternoon creating some birthday cards. I am getting low on my birthday card stash and I thought I should get some made and ready to go!

I got a new stamp set right before Christmas and I have not had a chance to use it until today. It was also my first time really using my Disress Oxied Inks and I love how my card turned out. 

To create this 4x4 card I started off using a MFT burlap background stamp. I stamped it in a Hero Arts soft yellow ink. I distressed the edges of the card with some Vintage Photo and Antique Linen Distress Ink.
The Stamp set is from Concord and 9th, Love You, Meant it. I have wanted this set for a while and was so happy to add it to my collection.
I used SSS Khaki ink for the wreath and Black ink for the sentiment.
The flowers and the leaves were stamped with Distress Oxide inks... Wild Violet, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint.

I made three more cards while I had the stamp set and inks out and I'll share them here over the next couple of days.

It's a cheerful springy card for this cold, snowy day and I had a lot of fun using this stamp set and using my new inks today!

One Snowflake 3 Cards

Well it's been a couple of weeks now since Christmas and I thought that it would be nice to send out some thank you notes to our family for their wonderful gifts that our boys received this Christmas.

I have always liked the 'thank you Snow much' sentiment and I love snowflakes too so I thought that I would make some pretty cards this year. 

I recently got a new Cricut machine and I thought it would be nice to use the Cricut markers for the sentiments and an image from the Winter Lace Cricut cartridge. I used one snowflake image for all three cards.

I also decided to use my Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder on one of the cards for snowflakes

The snow globe was cut from a PaperTrey Ink die. The label tied to it with the sentiment is from the Cricut Forever Young cartridge and the background stamp on the small square card is the wood grain background stamp from MFT.  It was inked up with the SSS Dark Chocolate ink. 

The backgrounds were created with some distress inks, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch and a mini distress blending tool.  

Now for the hard part, to get my boys to fill them out and get them into the mail!! 

Thanks for stopping by,
