Creating with a Fabulous Card Kit Available on

I love making cards but at times the process can take a long time and sometimes I want to complete a card (or several cards) in one sitting. Card kits are a great way to help make the process speedy but still beautiful!

Today’s cards feature Spellbinders – Rosie’s Studio – Heartfelt Collection – Card Maker’s Kit. This kit includes a 6″ x 6″ printed paper pad of sweet, love-themed designs, two sheets of chipboard embellishments, a package of puffy stickers, and glitter foam stickers. I love how all these products coordinate and work together seamlessly. I combined the kit with some exclusive products from to make four fun, cute, and fairly quick cards.

For my first card, I started with two of the patterned papers from the kit: a lovely pink floral paper, and a white and gold foil geometric paper. I used A2 rectangle dies to cut each piece just a little smaller than an A2 card. Then I trimmed the floral paper at an angle and adhered it over the other patterned paper using tape runner. I adhered both to a heavyweight cardstock and popped them up on an A2 card base using foam tape. Next, I die cut a heart out of Lawn Fawn Vellum using Hero Arts Infinity Dies Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies. I adhered the ampersand chipboard on top of that. Then I placed foam tape on the back of the heart behind the ampersand to adhere it to the card without showing through the vellum. I topped it off with a couple more chipboard embellishments and a few glitter foam heart stickers.

I followed the same first steps to make my second card, using a light green and a colorful heart patterned paper. I used the Birthday Banners dies to create a pink and yellow birthday banner. The pink cardstock comes from the Sprinkles Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad and the yellow is from the Daybreak Smooth Cardstock Paper Pad. (Sidenote: I love all the beautiful colors in these paper pads and they are a perfect weight for diecutting.) I diecut 2 layers of cardstock for the base of the banner and for the letters to add dimension. I glued them to the top portion of the panel and then added heart and “wonderful you” puffy stickers to add extra interest. I love how quickly this card came together and I love how all the embellishments tie in so nicely with the patterned paper.

For my third card, I used two more pieces of patterned paper: a pale blue simple plaid and a lovely floral with touches of gold foiling. I followed Jennifer McGuire’s steps of making a Split Window Card Design but instead of stamping along the left side I used more patterned paper and in the window, I added chipboard embellishments. I used a thin strip of matte gold cardstock to echo the gold in the paper. This card came together quickly but feels a little fancier to me because of the circular window on the card.

My final card might be one of my favorites simply because I really love bunnies! I used’s Nested Peeps Dies (so cute!) to diecut 9 bunnies from various patterned papers and 9 more from heavyweight white cardstock. I glued the the patterned bunnies to the white bunnies and arranged them on the card in a 3 x 3 pattern. I took a photo once I liked the arrangement and placed my stamp where I wanted it. Then, I used my Misti to stamp “some bunny loves you” from the Hello Spring stamp set. I stamped it in Pebble ink, my favorite light warm gray from Concord & 9th. Then I consulted my photo to put back my bunnies and popped them up with foam tape. I added puffy circle stickers in various colors for the bunny tails. I love these cute colorful bunnies!

Thanks for sending me these wonderful goodies to play with. This card kit is so much fun and a great way to make beautiful, quick cards!

Waffle Flower March 2024 Release – Berry Sweet

Waffle Flower has a fabulous new release! It’s perfect for strawberry lovers but also has some fabulous basics! (The links throughout my post are affiliate links and using them adds no cost to you, but gives me a small percentage to help support my crafty work. Thanks for considering using them!) You can view the whole release here.

My first card features the Strawberries Background Stencil. When I first saw this stencil, I knew I wanted to try a unique color combo. I googled “Strawberry Prints” and found several fun color combinations, including one similar to this.

I started with A2 panel of Concord & 9th Poppy Cardstock. I then used the first layer of the stencil with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink. For the second layer, I used Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink for the blueberries and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink. I let it dry for a while and the used the third layer of the stencil along Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink. I found a foam blending brush worked best. I also found a pressing motion worked better than a swirling motion, especially with the pigment ink.

For the sentiment, I used white embossing powder on a strip of dusty blue paper (cut at angle on one side) and heat embossed “You are the berry best” from the Sweet Plates Sentiments Stamp Set. (I love all the cute sentiments in this set!) Finally a cut a strip of pink gingham paper from the Berry Sweet Gingham Paper Pad and adhered it to the panel. I added the sentiment on top of that. I added it all to the top of an A2 card base.

I love how the oxide and pigment inks paired with colored paper give a unique look to the card and allow for endless color combinations. I’m excited to try it with dye inks on white paper to get a completely different look.

I love the Strawberries Die! For this card, I used classic red and green colors (Poppy and Evergreen cardstock from Concord & 9th) for the strawberries with a touch of gold for the seeds. For the white flowers, I added a little yellow inkblending (Buttercup from C9) to the middle before adding on the yellow centers. I added a heat embossed sentiment from the Sweet Plates Sentiments. I adhered them all onto a Nectar panel cut from the previously released Nesting Rounded Rectangle Dies. It all pops nicely on top of the white A2 card base.

If you want to mass produce strawberries, then them the Multiple Strawberries-Die-n-Stencil is for you! I used a blend of red and green inks for the strawberries and Gold Rush Lunar Paste for the seeds. (I still have another set of strawberries for another card!) Then, I diecut the Sweet Plaid Panel Die three times, stacked the layers and glued them for dimension. Next, I created a red ombré inkblend over a panel and then used the Sweet Plaid Texture Die on the panel. I topped it off with my strawberries and a sentiment from the Sweet Plates Sentiments. This card has tons of texture and dimension but came together so quickly!

My final card features this beautiful plaid patterned paper from the Berry Sweet Gingham Paper Pad. It coordinates perfectly with the Sweet Plaid Panel Die (which I again layered three times for dimension). The sentiment is from the Sweet Lattice Sentiments–another beautiful and versatile sentiment set from JJ Bolton! The matching dies make it easy to add the sentiments anywhere. I popped up some pink glittery flowers from the Strawberries Die to add some sparkle to the card.
