Simple Stories Sweet Talk Collection - 37 Cards
6 x 6 Paper Pad, Love, Simple Stories, Valentine's Day

37 Cards | Simple Stories | Sweet Talk Collection


Today I’m sharing 37 cards I made using Simple Stories Sweet Talk Collection. I love this collection. It is perfect for Valentine’s Day, however, it doesn’t necessarily have to be used for Valentine’s Day. You can use when you just want to send a love card. I used the 6 x 8 paper pad, ephemera bits and pieces, journal bits, and puffy stickers.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing my design process of all of the cards. I also listed each card below along with measurements.

Cards 14-16

For this card I used a smaller card base. Use an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.
Cut it down to 4 7/8″ x 7″. Score it at 3 1/2″.
This will give you a card base that measures 3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″.

Red Heart Pattern Paper – 3 3/8″ x 4 3/4″
Dotted Heart Dies – The Stamps of Life
Sampler Dies – The Stamps of Life (for the banners)

The two cards below use a similar layout. I moved the heart layers to the opposite side of the card. For the card on the left, I tilted the hearts. For the card on the right, I adhered the hearts off of the cardstock layer and trimmed them to be the same size as the patterned paper.

Cards 17-20

A2 Card Base (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″) – White
(See instructions under the previous card for how to cut your card base.)
Cranberry Cardstock (The Stamps of Life) – 3 3/8″ x 4 3/4″
Sprinkles Pattern Paper – 2 3/4″ x 4″ (Stitched Rectangle Die – The Stamps of Life)
Red Heart Pattern Paper – 1″ x 2 3/4″

The cards below were created based on the same layout as above. The only difference is in the size of the strip of paper. I was using scraps so the size of the strip of cardstock varies for the first two cards below. For the third card, I switched the orientation of the card to landscape and included a piece of twine instead of the cardstock strip.

Card 21

A2 Card Base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″) – Vanilla Cardstock (The Stamps of Life)
Cranberry Cardstock – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″

Card 22

A2 Card Base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″) – Pink
Cloud Pattern Paper – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Stripe Pattern Paper – 2″ x 4″ (mine is shorter on the left side because I used a scrap piece of paper)
Sampler Dies (for banners) – The Stamps of Life

Card 23

A2 Card Base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″) – White
Cranberry Cardstock (The Stamps of Life) – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Heart Pattern Paper – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
Stripe Pattern Paper – 3/4″ x 4 1/8″

Photo Frame Measurements:
Pink Cardstock – 3″ x 3 1/4″
Red Heart Pattern Paper – 2 1/4″ x 2 3/4″
Teal Flower Pattern Paper – cut to 2 3/4″ wide and use hill border to create hillside look. Used the border dies from The Stamps of Life.

Card 24

A2 Card Base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″) – White
Cranberry Cardstock (The Stamps of Life) – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Heart Pattern Paper – 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″

Flower Pattern Paper – 2″ H x 4″W
Ribbon Border Die (The Stamps of Life)

The cards below were created based on the same layout as above. For the card on the left, I used a scrap piece of paper instead of the ribbon border die to separate the pattern paper. The card on the right is a smaller card base (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″). The top layer is 3 3/8″ x 4 3/4″ and the striped pattern paper is 1 1/4″ x 3 3/8″. The strip of paper measures 5/8″ x 3 3/8″.

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit – 15 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit - 15 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life December 2020 card kit was released on December 15 and I just LOVE this kit! I think this has to be my all time favorite one! I’m so excited to share with you the 15 cards that I made with this kit. This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called LoveBugs2Stamp  as well as the add-on set, MoreLoveBugs2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the December Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life December 2020 Card Kit Club

The December card kit is called the “With Love” collection. The color pallet for this month is Grape, Ocean, Green Apple, Blue Jay, Candy, Cranberry, Guava, Mint Chip, and Powdered Sugar.  This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets.

The petite paper pad is the With Love Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes two sheets of love bugs and two sheets of flowers, all of which can be die cut using the shadow dies from the LoveBugs2Stamp dies and MoreLoveBugs2Stamp dies. In total, there are 12 flowers, 8 love bugs, and 12 happy mail die cuts. I love how these die cuts can be used to make quick and easy cards.

The card kit also comes with a With Love word die, heart chipboard embellishments, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set, arrow die, grape flower felt embellishments, glitter epoxy dots, idea card, and a set of envelopes.

As a special bonus, The Stamps of Life is including two freebie die sets in every card kit through December 2020.  My two freebies were the Sampler Dies ($16.41 value) and the Happy Birthday Word Dies ($14.95 value).

More information on The Stamps of Life clubs can be found here.

28 Christmas Cards | Simple Stories | Simple Vintage North Pole Collection


Today I’m sharing 28 cards I made using Simple Stories Simple Vintage North Pole Collection. I used the 6 x 8 paper pad, chipboard stickers, ephemera bits and pieces, and the 12 x 12 Basics Kit which includes six papers that match the collection.

I love the vintage theme of this collection. I made a total of 28 cards with this collection. For some of the cards, I was inspired by a card sketch and other designs I came up with on my own.

I brought in a few word dies and stamps for sentiments. I also brought in some circle dies, some card bases, and a few pieces of red cardstock from my stash.

I have a video on my YouTube channel showing my design process of all of the cards. I also listed each card below along with measurements.

Enjoy!

Thinking of You Card

Hi everyone!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a thinking of you card. I ink-blended the sky background and colored the flower images from the MoreLoveBugs2Stamp set from The Stamps of Life. The sentiment is from the newly released heartwords2stamp from The Stamps of Love. This set includes five sentiments (Miss You, Thinking of You, Hello, Thank you, and Best Wishes) that can be die cut with the matching dies. Each sentiment includes small hearts that extend beyond the edges of the letters.

To see how I made this card, watch my tutorial here —
