Hands up if you love a card kit for super quick, easy to make cards?
With card kits all the hard work is done for you, but I especially love the For the Love of Felt card kit because I’m also a sewer so I have a thing for the feel, texture and look of felt.
The For the Love of Felt card kit comes in the cutest box with almost everything you need to make amazing cards – you just need to add some adhesives and stamps (if you want to add sentiments).
There is a co-ordinating stamp set for this kit but I wanted to use a different stamp set for my cards to show you how you any sentiments work well with this kit. The sentiments for all three of my cards today come from the Free as a Bird stamp set.
There are three different deigns for the card bases in this kit, and three different images on the card tioppers.
Card one uses the floral card base and the plain white card topper. A little “hello” is the perfect touch for my simple bouquet.
Card two uses the plainest card base and the printed vellum layer. I fussy cut the thank you sentiment with my paper snips..
Card three is my favourite, using the wreath topper and the beautiful “Your friendship means the world to me” sentiment stamped onto the wreath topper.
The picture below shows how the cards are supposed to look is you use the co-ordinating stamp set but I think it really doesn’t matter how you assemble your cards or what stamp set you decide to use…with these gorgeous embellishments you really can’t go wrong!
Tomorrow I will be sharing some more cards with you, but in the meantime you can view all the retiring products in my online shop.

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing amazing projects featuring Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, most of which is in the current promotions where you can buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper and receive a pack for free! Only available until the 30th of September.
Sometimes I’m reluctant to use Design Series Paper in my card making because it’s just so beautiful I don’t want to cover it. So my solution for my cards tonight is to frame the paper instead!
I’ve used my favourite Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalogue: Bird Ballad DSP.
You can take a closer look at this stunning paper in this short video below.
I made the same sized frame for all four cards, using two of the rectangle stitched dies. Each card features a different piece of DSP from this set, mounted onto a rectangle of Pool Party card stock. Foam adhesive strips made it easy to lift the frames above the image, giving the effect of a picture frame.
In card one I used mini dimensionals to pop up some fussy cut images from the DSP and finished the card off with a bow of linen thread and a pool party rhinestone from the the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
In card two I simply used more of the dimensionals from the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels – this time in cherry cobbler – to add a bit of bling to the flowers.
Cards three and four have the stamped “thank you” from the co-ordinating Free as a Bird stamp set, die cut out with the smallest oval in the stitched shapes framelits.
All these photos were taken outside in my garden today – it is spring here and my garden is full of birds and blooming with colour. Because the DSP for card four was more of a background pattern I fussy cut a couple of the birds and adhered them to the edges of the frame for some visual interest and dimension.
Here’s another shot of my stunning clivia!
