Jenn’s Simple Cards for Everyday Heroes!

Join us for another fantastic Inspiration Week starting this Friday! We will finish shining the spotlight on our Spring 2020 release with lots of great samples and giveaways! We can’t wait!

Jenn is making multiple cards in response to Jennifer McGuire’s call to Stay Home and Make Cards! Jennifer is encouraging us to create simple cards for health care workers, first responders, grocery store employees, etc. It’s a great way to put our cardmaking skills to excellent use to encourage the people working selflessly every day!

Jenn assembled strips of Dandy Day 6×6 papers in a rainbow pattern to create this colorful design! She stamped the sentiments from Big Scripty Words and Simply Sentiments in Hippo ink and added hearts cut from Narwhal cardstock. Quick and easy to put together with a whole lot of heart!

Jenn has a great tip for stamping die cuts when making multiples of the same card! It’s brilliant!

  1. Put some scrap cardstock into your MISTI, and stamp the words you will want to use on your card. Keep this setup. Hold it with your magnet, or some Therm-o-Web Purple Tape.
  2. Die-cut the words you will want to stamp. Overlay the negative on top of the words you stamped on scrap cardstock. Be sure that the alignment is correct. Tape in place.
  3. Place the die-cut words into the negative cardstock.
  4. Stamp your words in whatever colored ink you would like.
    Perfect placement each time!

Thanks so much, Jenn for sharing your beautiful card design and super helpful stamping tip!

  1. Great tip on perfect stamping! I can see this working for ANY die cut!
    One question – were the colored strips adhered to some paper or light cardstock, and then the stitched rectangle was die cut into that?

  2. Love this! I’ve used this technique when stamping a larger image, but not yet when stamping and die-cutting some of the smaller text-based images! LOVE the visual tutorial with the great and easy-to-understand 4 step description. Thanks!
