Kids cards

I love making cards for kids, its so much fun. It bring out my inner child I think ! lol

This was for a boys birthday. I havent used my Sizzix film strip die for ages, but its so great to frame and image. I stamped all those crazy animals and monsters and colored with my copics. I have recently sorted all my stamps into categories, 'nature', 'backgrounds', 'sentiments' etc. The largest by far is my 'animals' box ! lol.

This card is for a nature/bug party and the accompanying gift is butterfly solar lights for the garden - how fantastic is that :-) I'm sure the Birthday girl will love it.

The rose red SU cardstock was the basis for this card because I wanted the jar to stand out. I stamped the jar, from the SU set Perfectly Preserved, in white stazon onto a window sheet and die cut it. The effect is that the butterflies are flying out of the jar. But you got that - right :-)

The butterflies are from two SU stamp sets : Kindness Matters and Papillon Porpourri. I stamped them, colored them with SU markers and then clear embossed them to make them shiny. It really makes the colors pop.

The grass is from a My Favourite Things die, and some gorgeous washi tape brings all the colors together - wish the name of the company was on these rolls of tape !

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting and have a great weekend x


  1. I love both those cards. The film strip makes a great frame and those goofy critters could be straight out of Monsters Inc.
    I love love love the butterflies jar. I have to CASE this sometime - it's brilliant.
    Thanks for the inspiration

  2. I just love the jar and butterfly cards. I am going to try to make mine as beautiful as yours, if that is possible. Thank you for sharing.
