Hello, Dear Friend Card Kit Possibilities

Greetings my stamping friends! I have been very crafty over the last few days and I am excited to share with you my creations.

This will be a rather long post with 22 – yes 22 – cards I created when I combined the Hello, Dear Friend Card Kit (available in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog) with just two additional products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. (I send a special THANK YOU to Jann McCollom for sharing her projects with me, upon which I based several of my card layouts!)

First I will share with you four (4) cards that were made according to the kit’s directions:

The kit comes with enough card bases and other card elements to make three (3) each of the four (4) card designs. The skinny cards will measure 4.50″ x 2.50″ and the larger cards are standard size and measure 5.50″ x 4.25″. Both sizes have a coordinating, size appropriate envelope. (Total of 12 cards with envelopes.)

By making just one of each design from the kit per the directions, by adding some designer series paper (Flower & Field Designer Series Paper [FREE Sale-a-Bration product available through February 28, 2021 or while supplies last]) and/0r a few embellishments (2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots) to the remaining kit supplies, I made the following eight (8) cards:

After making these 12 cards, I still had elements left over from the kit. So, by adding the Flower for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes I was able to make 10 more cards as follows:

Whew! That’s a lot of cards, right!

If you want to make these cards (or your own variation of them), here are the Stampin’ Up! products you will need (or want) to have on hand. I have included the thumbnail quick links for adding these products to your shopping cart:

Product List

If you purchase the Hello, Dear Friend Card Kit, the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots (total purchase of $51.00 before taxes & shipping), you will qualify to receive the Flower & Field 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper for FREE as part of Sale-A-Bration (which ends on February 28, 2021).

I hope you have enjoyed today’s projects and feel inspired and emboldened to mix and match the products that Stampin’ Up! has to offer to stretch your all inclusive kit’s potential. The ALL INCLUSIVE KITS provide you everything you need to make the projects as designed — including the stamp set, an ink spot and all adhesives — and are an economical way to build your crafting supplies.

It has been a very long time since I have bought a card — yes, I have handmade ALL of my cards to friends and family since 2009 and they appreciate them much more than a store bought card. How much would 22 cards cost you at the store? More than the $51.00 (before taxes)? Most likely.

If you have any questions about these projects, I would be happy to share my design information with you. This would even be a fun project to do together with friends through Zoom.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
