I’m a kit girl! I LOVE the kits that Stampin’ Up!® offers, as most of you know from what I share with the monthly Paper Pumpkin kits. But do you know that Stampin’ Up! also offers kits that are available at anytime in the online store?… Project Kits and All-inclusive Kits.
This year two all-inclusive favorites have returned: Lots of Happy and Notes of Kindness. Click here to see how I doubled the amount of cards in the Lots of Happy kit by adding Basic Black Cardstock. And click here to see how I turned the cards in the Notes of Kindness kit into birthday cards.
Like the other all-inclusive kits, everything you need is included: all the consumables, the stamps, a mini ink pad, a clear block for mounting and using your stamps, adhesives, and a directions sheet. I altered the intended cards just a little bit by using some of the extra supplies. Yep! This kit includes lots of extras so you can either add in extra card base pieces & envelopes to make additional cards OR use the extras to give your cards a little more 3-D effect…which is what I did.
The Looking Up kit makes 15 cards (3 of 5 kinds) and comes with fun coordinating envelopes. I love this kit because in includes a variety of sentiments, it’s easy to put together, AND the cards aren’t feminine. So you can make these cards for the guys (and kids!) in your life.
Watch this video by Stampin’ Up! first to see how to make the cards as intended. Then scroll down to see my variations.
I altered the hot air balloon card by attaching the extra balloon die-cuts with Dimensionals over the ones pre-printed on the card. I stamped some birds in the sky. And I added an extra copper metallic border sticker.
I altered the airplane card by attaching the extra airplane die-cut with Dimensionals slightly off center of the pre-printed one on the card to give it a shadow effect and give it an illusion of movement. I stamped some birds in the sky. And I added an extra copper metallic border sticker.
I altered the rain drops card by attaching the extra rain drops die-cuts with Glue Dots onto the sentiment layer. I also added copper metallic leaves from the extra sticker to the inside edges of the card.
I altered the palm tree card by attaching the extra palm tree die-cuts with Dimensionals. I also shifted the sentiment so it was centered and added an extra copper metallic border sticker on top of the first one to make it stronger and more solid in appearance.
And I altered the city sky line card by attaching the extra small tree die-cuts on the inside of the card – one with Glue Dots and one with Dimensionals. I also added two small diamond copper metallic stickers (left overs from one of the border stickers) on the sentiment piece to “anchor” the ends and give that layer a more finished look.
Did you notice those envelopes!?!! SO adorable how they all coordinate, right?
I hope I gave you a great peek into this new kit and gave you some ideas for making the cards a little more elaborate.
One more thing I want to point out is that you don’t have to use all the sentiments. So if you are needing 15 birthday cards, use the Happy Birthday stamp on ALL of them! The sentiments are all about the same size and can work on every label piece.
