Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Notes of Kindness Card Kit

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for July.  This month we are looking at the fabulous kits that Stampin' Up! has to offer.  I'm so glad you have joined us.  I hope you enjoy my projects.  My name is Jo Anne Hewins.

My favorite kit is the Notes of Kindness Card Kit.  It's easy to assemble and so nice.  Saying thank you can be so important.  Here is a picture of the cards in the kit as I made them according to directions.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit assembled by Jo Anne Hewins

This kit has supplies to  make 20 cards, 5 each of each card above.  Wow!  It's an all inclusive kit meaning that the stamp set and everything you need is included.  Just add some of your adhesive.  AND, a refill kit is available to purchase without the stamp set, clear block, and ink.

Just to make life a little more interesting, I've made 3 samples using these materials in a different way!

Notes of Kindness Card Kit Alternative Samples by Jo Anne Hewins

Let's talk a little about each one.

Notes of Kindness Alternative Card #1 by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, start with the card base that is green striped.  Use your Blackberry Bliss ink and the THANKS stamp.  Using the Stamparatus, hinge stamp the thanks down the right side.

Take one of the Blushing Bride stickers and cut it down the middle lengthwise.  Add this along the bottom.  Try to place this so that part of the flower petal covers the seam.

Add the flower using dimensionals.  Add some of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.  Divide a strand of the Blackberry Bliss cord from the Nature's Twine pack and make a bow.  Add this with a rolled up glue dot.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit Alternative #2 by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, you'll need a Whisper White Note Card & Envelope.  Take one of the envelopes from the card kit and open it carefully at the seams so that you have a flat piece with the stripes showing.  Cut a piece of this 3 1/2 x 5 and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the plus sign stamp in Mossy Green on the front of the card.

Stamp the sentiment from the card kit in Mossy Meadow on one of the square punch outs.  I used the Stamparatus so I could stamp again if needed.  Add this with dimensionals.  Add the pink flower with dimensionals.

Add some of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit Alternative #3 by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a full card.  Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

Using the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, cut the black leaves piece to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhere to the front of the card base.  The black and white stripe paper is cut to 2 x 5 1/2.  The Blushing Bride piece is 1/4 x 5 1/2.  There are 2 of these and they are butted up to the black and white stripe.

Using the Layering Circles, cut a circle from the Blushing Bride flower paper.  Adhere the Thank You sticker to the center of the circle.  Take the leaves punch out and cut it in half.  Place these pieces so that they come out from behind the circle.  Adhere all of this to the card with dimensionals.  Add a bow with a rolled up glue dot.  Use the left over twine from the card above.
