September (snail mail) Smiles!

Let's send some smiles!!

Everyone loves getting some snail mail that's not a bill or advertisement, am I right? I have sooooo many cards that I've made (& tons of ideas for more!). I need to start sending them out!

So, I created this idea to help me mail or give a card every day in September. I smile every time I receive a card or note in the mail. If you want to make people smile, join me in this challenge. 

I created this list below as an idea guide. Fill it out with names and start sending or giving a card each day to them. It's just an idea guide, so for instance if you only know 3 local business to send to but have 12 family member just do that! Do whatever works for you ... just send a card every day to whoever needs a smile!

If you decide to join this challenge, post your cards on social media using the hashtag #SeptemberSmiles so I can see them.

Thanks for stopping by!

The new mini catalog also features 'Suite Bundles". Suite Bundles are fantastic and super easy to create just the project you're looking for!

Triple Layer Card

 I have a card to share with you today that’s one of my favorite designs - the Triple Layered card! This style is so versatile. You can use just about any stamp set, and you can make it multi-colored or monochromatic! It looks great any way you do it.

Are you a baker? Maybe you’re a direct seller of cookware/kitchen supplies? The stamp set I’m using today is perfect for you! You can make customer thank you cards ... Or a card to attach to a gift ... Maybe even make a card for your party hostess ... there are so many reasons to use this stamp set! (If you're making multiple cards at a time, scroll to the bottom to see a quick tip for cutting multiples)

Here’s the card I made ...

This card is super easy and quick! My favorite kind 🤣

Let’s gather the supplies needed ...

Cardstock - Basic White {159276} and Soft Succulent {155776} 

Ink Pads ... Soft Succulant {155778}, Polished Pink {155712}and Pale Papaya {155670}

Stamp Set - What’s Cookin’ {154491}

Paper Trimmer {152392}

Stampin' Seal Adhesive {152813}

Repositionable Adhesive (Optional)

Acrylic Block(s)

The first thing to do is cut all of the cardstock paper. Here are the measurements ...
Soft Succulent - 8.5"x5.5" (card base), 4.5"x3.25" and 3.5"x2.25"
Basic White - 5.25"x4", 4.25"x3" and 3.25"x2"

Starting with the Basic White pieces, you're going to apply a small amount of adhesive to the 2 smaller pieces. This is only temporary placement, so repositionable adhesive works best. If you don't have any just use a very small amount of regular adhesive. Center the smallest Basic White piece onto the middle size piece, then onto the largest piece ...

If I'm using a sentiment, I like to stamp that first onto the smallest piece. Here, I'm using Soft Succulent ink ...

After the sentiment, I like using the largest image stamp to randomly stamp over the cardstock, then use the smaller images to fill in the space.
Don't worry about the space the stamp leaves around the edges ...

After all of the stamping is done, gently pull apart the pieces. Apply regular adhesive onto the back of each piece and position on center of solid cardstock pieces, including card base. Pay attention to make sure the images are positioned upright and not upside down ...

Apply adhesive onto back of the smallest piece, and center it onto the middle size piece. Apply adhesive to the back and center over the card front. Again - pay attention so the images are not upside down ...
When completed, all of the images line up and look terrific!
You can use this technique with just about any stamp set and any colors you prefer. Here are a few other card I've made using this technique ...

QUICK TIP: If you are making multiples of this card, there is a really cool app that you can use to determine the paper cuts. It's called DyCut ... you enter in your paper size and the size of the cuts you need. It'll show you different options to cut and how many cuts you can get on one sheet ...

Pretty cool, huh? I love using this app when I'm making a bunch of cards. It makes calculating and cutting so much easier! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a great day!
