Card Making Kit by Stampin’ Up

If you have been following my blog recently, you will know I’ve been getting all artsy and crafty. Last week was painting by numbers and scrapbooking, this week is card making. Thanks to the lovely people at Stampin’ Up, I have been sent this awesome card making kit to try called Lot’s Of Happy.

I love the idea of this card making kit, it’s the perfect way to give someone a little bit of happy on any occasion. Even if you are not naturally artistic, you can still do something homemade and creative which always adds that extra special touch. This kit has everything you need, just make sure you have some glue nearby and you are good to go!

The whole kit comes in this cool little box. I’m already thinking of uses for this once I have made all my cards. How perfect would this be for giving a gift in too!

In the all-inclusive card making kit you get: 20 cards, 4 each of 5 designs / 7 photopolymer stamps / clear stamp block / 20 printed card bases and coordinating envelopes / printed, gold foil, white, and vellum die-cut accents / white and gold foil labels / basic black archival stampin’ spot / full-size watercolour pencils in flirty flamingo, lemon lime twist, old olive, and rich razzleberry / lemon lime twist 1/4″ (6.4 mm) ombre ribbon / stampin’ dimensionals.

Gorgeous shades to colour in the flowers.

Cool stamps for every occasion.

In the kit, there is a handy little guide to show you which combinations work best together.

Firstly, the important task of colouring. It’s so easy to add depth to the flowers using the different shades provided.

Ta-da! The greens and pinks look so pretty together.

Next, choose your card, the add the first layer and stick on the flower embellishments.

It’s all about adding layers to make the card stand out. I love how the black and white stripes look against the pinks and greens with a touch of gold.

Of course, Simba wasn’t far away when there was string involved.

I’m really pleased with how this turned out. The stampin’ is pretty straightforward – stamps, ink and stampin’ block are all included.

There are a variety of different card shapes and sizes all with matching envelopes.

I love the cute and happy stamps!

This kit is a must for anyone who loves colouring in, like I do.

When you manage to get the string from your cat, you can use this to add an extra layer and splash of colour.

I love how these cards have such sweet and positive messages.

Here are the five different designs. You can experiment with layers and combinations and see which looks best. To have fun with your own kit, check out the Stampin’ Up Lot’s of Happy card making kit.

    Love this post. I really need to get back into card making. I used to make them all the time and had hundreds of pounds worth of kit but sold most of it when I moved a couple of years ago. I want to start up again and I LOVE the look of this kit. I love all the textures and layers. Definitely going to have a look at the website.

    • February 25, 2018 / 11:47 am

      Yay! So glad this has inspired you to get back into card making! 💖 It is such a fun and creative thing to do. Thank you for your lovely comment Hayley 😘 xx
