Set of notecards

Yesterday was a busy day so I didn’t get much done in the craft room.  We woke up to 3″ of snow but thankfully it has all melted off now.  Its cold today but the sun is shining. 

This set of cards are pretty easy. Its always nice to have some notecards on hand and at this time, when we are isolated from each other, sending a card to someone can really brighten their day. 

I used the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder to create the background, leaving a blank space so I could stamp “hello” from Hero Arts.  I used Avery Elle Fog pigment ink pad.  I used papers from Recollections Dreamy paper pad. 

You can find some of the supplies here:

What about a box card today?

So today was another day spent at home. I am trying to stay home unless I have to go out.  Our state has limited contact to 10 people or under. My husband and daughters are still going to work, although my daughters have reduced hours now.  I am trying not to stress over everything but its hard.  I have been trying to limit the amount of news that I watch, just getting the headlines daily, but sometimes even that is too much.  There’s a fine line for me between staying informed and avoiding too much stress.  So I try to come into my craft room daily and create something to try to take my mind off everything going on.  We are still dealing with aftershocks from the earthquake.  Thankfully I am not feeling them although today we had some stronger ones of 3.3.  

What do you think about box cards?  I think they are pretty cute so I decided to make one with a new stamp set I got from MFT stamps called “Party Animals”.  

I cut the box using an Echo Park die and stamped and fussy cut the animals.  I used alcohol markers to color them. I used a Honey Bee die to cut the grass and I decorated the box with paper from Echo Park.  After the coloring it was just a matter of glueing everything together.  
The supplies I used are:
Echo Park A2 Pop Up Card Box Die
MFT Party Animal stamp set.
Honey Bee Stamps grass border die
Echo Park dots and stripes paper pad
