Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit – Stampin’ Up!

My friend and fellow stamper, Amy Koenders and I recently had a “Stampin’ Playdate” to assemble the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit.  The cards in this kit are just adorable!

Although, I love the end result of this kit, it isn’t a quick one to put together.  Amy and I worked together for a little over 3 hours to put it together.  It was a really fun evening, and a great way to spend time with friends!  I would definitely recommend it as a social evening for you and some crafting friends!

As the name suggests, the kit is intended to be watercolored, but Amy and I decided to save some time by using a brayer and sponge daubers instead.  We used a brayer on the trees and the sleds, rather than watercoloring them and waiting for the ink to dry. 🙂

This kit comes with materials to create some of the cards in four languages (English, German, Spanish, and French).  Since my sister lives in Germany, I decided to make one of the cards in German.  She’s going to love that!

For the stripes on this card, we used a mask and sponge dauber to save a little time.  We also sponged the letters.  Sponging before you punch out the letters saves a lot of time.

Amy and I used the same sponging technique on the word “Merry” in this card.

The card kit comes with the card bases and embellishments needed to make 20 cards, 5 of each of the four designs (stamps, ink, and adhesive not included).  However, we did decide to add a few extra embellishments for some extra wow!  We used rhinestones colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities and the Frosted Sequins for a little bling. 🙂

All in all, this kit provided Amy and I with some great “girlfriend time” and we each walked away with 10 finished Christmas cards!  I’d say that is a deal you can’t beat.  If you are a fan of this project, please pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list.

Hip Hip Hooray for Quick and Simple Solutions! – Stampin’ Up!

I’ll tell you what, the last few weeks have been rough!  After my difficult week last week, this week I have been sick all week!  I’m so grateful that Stampin’ Up! has provided us with quick and simple solutions for when life gets a little crazy!  Today’s project is a set of cards created with the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit from Stampin’ Up!

Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit (3 of 5)

My mom and I created these cards together a couple of weeks ago while we were on vacation at the beach. I knew I couldn’t bring a lot of supplies with me, but I couldn’t imaging a week without some form of creative play, so I threw the Hip Hip Hooray card kit and some paper snips into my suitcase.

Mom and I had a fun time playing together and we were able to whip out ten cards in no time flat!  What is even better, is the card kit comes with enough supplies for 20 cards, so I still have plenty more materials left in my kit for next time I need a quick solution!
