I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA recently – I have good reason with some exciting things coming down the pipe! Until I can release any more info, I am back to regular posting. And what a better way to be back than with a Blog Hop with my friends over at the Global Stamping Friends?!
Today’s hop is all about Kids Cards! Sometimes I struggle with kids cards even though the perception is that they’re easy to make. To be honest, I find them the most challenging! Kids likes and dislikes are constantly changing, so sometimes it’s hard to keep up!
Having said that, I think I’ve come up with a couple of kids cards that will impress even the toughest of our little critics!
Enter: the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set!
Isn’t this just gorgeous? I used Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, and Dapper Demin ink to create the beautiful watercolour background, and then used the Watercolour Pencils to colour in the mermaid. Unfortunately, there are no dies or framelits with this set, but it’s nothing a little fussy cutting can’t solve!
Oh, and just in case you’re wondering about the watermark on the photo, Sweet Paper Studios is my other small business. You can learn more and check out my page by clicking HERE.
My next card involves a little punch art! I don’t do very much punch art, but when I do, I can’t help but go all-out!
This sweet little lion was created using the Fox Builder Punch, along with a 2″ scallop punch for his mane. You can find the leaves in the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.
I just love how both of these cards turned out and I know that the recipients loved them too!
What about you, do you find kids’ cards hard to design?

Oh Lisa, these are lovely. I’m not sure which is my favourite. Maybe both for different reasons. Your punch art is fantastic. TFS
