Hi there! Tya up on the blog today sharing my latest batch of handmade cards with you! I got the pleasure of working with the 2020 edition of the “I Am” collection. Each time that Simple Stories has come out with the “I Am” collections- they just get more and more beautiful! I love the colors and icons and the positive messages this collection includes. It’s perfect for sending some positive vibes to your special someone.
I created 8 cards with this collection and here are each of them close-up. I had so much fun making these and loved the different variety of cards I was able to make.
Card 1 was fun to make - I love the addition of the beautiful dusty purple in the collection. I made sure to use it along the bottom of this card. The gold foil that is shown on the “Dream Big” sentiment was a great addition to add some shine to the card.
Card 2 has more of that lovely gold foil and some super fun Leopard print paper. I want that Leopard print purse to be real lol! I added a cute floral cluster in next to the sentiment adds some more feminine touches to the card.
Card 3 is indeed “Fab-You-Lous!” I like using the 4x4 Element cards as bases for my card embellishments. The black and white gingham ribbon brings a fun and funky spin to this card.
Card 4 is made with one of the 3x4 cards that are in the 6x8 Paper Pad as the sentiment. 3x4 cards are a great and easy way to add a sentiment to your cards without a lot of work. I love that the Decorative Brad is the same print as the background pattern paper. That is a great way to add cohesion to your cards.
Card 5 is a fun one too. I really liked the darker teal color in the collection. I have used the cute lined paper type label that is from the Journaling Bits and Pieces before on my cards and I like turning it into a tag by punching a hole in the top and lacing some ribbon or twine through the top. I also added some of the Enamel Dots for some shine.
I decided to make Card 6 into a shaker card. The cute window label shape from the Journaling Bits and Pieces makes the perfect cover to make a cute shaker card. I added some gold sequins to the inside and then placed the frame on a hot pink floral paper. Then 2 super cute gold flowers are from the Foam Stickers. They add some fun dimension to the card.
Card 7 is a new type of card style for me – this is called a Slimline card and boy was it fun to work with a different sized card. This card was made with some metal dies to create the cute windows with some of the Bits and Pieces Ephemera sticking out. The swan and butterfly shapes fit great inside the windows.
Last card, Card 8 is a great way to end the batch. The cute foam stickers have gold foil on them and add great shine to the cards! The cute denim shirt and Leopard print shoes were stickers and add cute and hip element to the card.
This was one of my favorite collections to work with! I hope you enjoyed the cards and that they inspired you to used the “I Am” collection to make some cards of your own. Anyone would love to receive one of these cards. Thank you so much for stopping by- Happy Crafting friends!
