8 Cards In Under an Hour

Pin It!

Who says you can't create 8 cards in under an hour??? With the help of  the designer card kit by We R Memory Keepers it was a piece of cake.  I whipped them out in no time at all.  They did all the leg work for me.  When I opened the package I was pleasantly surprised that everything was labeled as to which card it belonged to.  My only gripe would be that I wish that it was labeled a little bigger (everything has a number inside a arrow pointing to it) my sight is getting a bit weak as I age. LOL.  As I worked on my cards I, as I often do as I work, began to think of all the possibilities of the card kits.  Not only can you use them as cards but you could create mini books or journals from the cards by adhering them to chipboard.  You could also give a completed set of cards as a  gift set (they also come with all the envelopes).   When I travel I like to work on projects in the car, this is great because I don't have to worry about forgetting a piece at home, it's all included, just bring glue!  Because there is no cutting involved it's a great project for kids to do.  All the cards are so adorable just as they are but I wanted to give them a little personalization of my own.  I took one picture before and one after of most of the cards so you can see the changes.  Just, LOVE them!  Ok, enough about my touting about how much I enjoyed making the cards...on with the video.  And for all the Indy fans out there, she's overseeing most of my work in the video.  She thinks she's a star!

You Are My Sunshine! Added a bit of Stickles.



 Bloom Where You Are Planted!  For this one I added just a dab of Dimensional Pearls to the center of the flowers.  To avoid peaks, keep it level and tap the back of the card.

Party Animal!
 Birthday Candle Card
For this one I added some of that shimmery Stickles that I love so much! I used ICE Stickles in lemon ice

 

 Thank You, Thank You, Thank You...
A little Glossy Accents can go a long way.  To make this card look even more dimensional I added glossy accents to the orange floral rings and to the center chipboard flower.  It gives it an epoxy look.

 Froggy Card
I guess those were flies not bees as I was calling them in the video. LOL
 I Love You!
Mmmm! Stickles!!! The Crystal Stickles really makes that heart POP!  Stickles has quite a variety of "white" or "clear" colors but they actually have quite a lot of color to their shimmer.  Next time you are at your local scrapbook store take a look at the difference in the colors of Crystal, Stardust, Icicle, Frosted Lace, and Diamond.  It's hard to see online but incredible in real life.  You may find that you may need to pick up one or two...or three (like me).  LOL

 Hello!
embossed and textured paper is so hot right now! When you don't have it why not make your own? I used a touch of Glossy Accents on the background paper to create the effect.  I also used it on the tops of the buttons to make them look more realistic.  Use what you have!

 And of course here's superstar Indy posing with the cards that she "helped" create!
 And Indy says "That's a wrap, time to take a break and cuddle with me"
