Three Fun KI Memories cards by designer Gretchen McElveen

You Make My Heart Sing card by Gretchen McElveen
Hi there! I’ve got a simple card to share with you today using the KI Memories “Playlist” collection. I used one of the pink patterned papers in the line to create the background for the card. I added the heart die cut card (all those Project Life die cuts you have are great to use on cards too!) to the center of the card and then cut the sentiment out of a different sheet of patterned paper. I added a small die cut heart below the sentiment and then added some fun glitter dots to embellish. Easy!
Thanks for looking!

You Rock card by Gretchen McElveen
Hi! I tried to go a little more masculine on this card using the “Playlist” line from KI Memories. No pinks or purples on this one! The “Playlist” line is great because it does have a mix of girly and more masculine colors. And stars always seem to be my go-to embellishment for masculine projects!
Thanks for looking!

Thanks card by Gretchen McElveen
Hi there! I’ve got a “thank you” card using the KI Memories “Playlist” line to share with you today. I made the background of the card with patterned paper and the smiley-face die cut card (so fun!). Then to make the title I adhered the vellum alphabet stickers from the “Playlist” line to white cardstock first and then cut them out with a white border around the edges. I just thought the white paper helped the letters stand out better! Then I embellished the card with the starry confetti and some glitter dots.
Thanks for looking!

Sending You Happy Thoughts card by designer Patty Folche

Happy Thoughts Scooter Card
Sometimes we need a card to make someone smile or to lift their spirits. This is one of those happy cards created with a new Hampton Vintologie Stamp and Stencil set and Jillibean Soup, Cool as a Cucumber papers and diecuts.

Sending You Happy Thoughts card by Patty Folchert

I started out by cutting 11 strips of coordinating paper in different widths from my scraps.  I attached those in a diagonal pattern as shown across the card with adhesive and then using my sewing machine I stitched every other strip for added texture.  Then to create the sentiment tag I used the Vintologie Stamp and Stencil sets “Sending you Happy Thoughts” sentiment and then adding three arrows in brown ink onto plain kraft paper. Then I added a strip of paper on the tag end and trimmed the corner and stapled an “x” onto the end. The tag was then added as shown with foam dots. 

After that I added the diecut scooter from the Jillibean Soup/Cool as a Cucumber Collection with foam dots as well. The “Yay” flag was also stamped onto plain kraft paper in brown ink and added to the scooter with foam dots. Last I added some metallic sequins for a bit of bling.

There you have it, a playful card sure to lift anyone’s spirits; but don’t take my word for it- give a try and put it to the test. Let me know how yours turns out!

Happy Birthday card by Gini Williams Cagle

It's easier than ever before to put a cute spin on your cards using Hampton Art's Stamp and Stencil sets.  I was able to quickly add my stenciled banner to the top of the card, and stamped the sentiment.  The cake was stamped, colored and fussy cut - and then added to the card with foam dimensionals.  It's fun and festive, and everything comes together quickly.

A Party With Out Cake card by designer Lori Williams

Hi Hampton Art lovers, Lori here with you today sharing a fun and poppy birthday card.  I challenged myself just a bit with this one as I used only white cardstock paper to create this happy card.  Hampton Art stamps and stencils made it really simple and I adore the finished work.
A Party With Out Cake... card by Lori Williams

I started with plain white rectangle of cardstock and laid the stencil from the Vintologie (SC 0646) over the top of it.  Using bright pigment ink I colored in the banner with various colors and let dry.  Then I lined and or doodled on each of the banners using a white pen.  I used the pink ink to distress ink the edges of the rectangle. Next I stamped the cake stamp from the same collection using black ink and then colored in with markers and cut it out with a die.  I distressed inked the edges with the bright pink color.  I made sure to leave a bit of white around the cake which makes it stand out and almost pop of the page.   Using foam tape I mounted to the center of the base banner card.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment using black ink then restamped just a bit askew using the pink ink which gave the sentiment a little bit of a highlight.  I punched out the sentiment and then punched out a doily and colored it with the pink ink then finished off by mounting to the card with foam tape.  I then added several layers to the base of my card for some detail and build up and the base layer was inked with a turquoise blue for a hint of color and to finish everything up. 
Happy crafting and I challenge you…can you make a card using just stamps, stencils, ink and white cardstock?  The challenge is fun.

KI Memories Playlist - Happy Birthday card by designer Patty Folchert

Time today to share a fresh bouquet of KI Memories flowers made from the Playlist Collection just in time for a Birthday delivery.

Happy Birthday card by Patty Folchert

This card began as a sketch of my own with layered flowers as the focus, then I dug into my new box of Hampton Art goodies and found some perfect papers, stamp and embellishments to bring them to life. The flowers were cut from KI Memories Playlist papers in Cover Art and Favorite and the edges inked in black. Then they were layered together with foam dots with flower sequins and pink glitter dots as the centers. Three green leaves were cut and folded from Rhythm paper.  Here is a close up:

The Pop Icon paper was added as the main card base with border strips of Volume front and back sides. Next I stitched with my sewing machine between the border strips with white thread. Last I created the sentiment panel using Alternative paper diagonal stripes cut like a ticket stub. Then I stamped the sentiment using “Happy Birthday” stamp from the Vintologie Stamp & Stencil Set #SC0642 in black ink and trimmed as a ticket stub as well. 

Just three little glitter dots in pink and the card was finished. Not merely a card but a birthday bouquet bursting with energetic color and depth. Do you think it worthy of sending? I say yes.

Summer Blooms,
