World Card Making Day – Card Sketch!

It’s time to celebrate World Card Making Day! October is always a month I look forward to for many reasons, but one of the reasons is World Card Making Day! I always enjoy taking one day to just create cards, I create all types of cards and usually this is when I get started on my Christmas cards! Today I have made a card sketch to help jump start your creativity in getting some cards made! Here is the sketch:

Here is a card I created based on this sketch:

Supplies Used: Explore Your World Tags Double Sided Paper; Discover USA tags double sided paper, navy blue cardstock; Kawaii Not? planner stickers

The yellow Explore Your World paper is so pretty and good for more then just traveled themed projects as you can see! I have used this paper for so many things, it is my favorite paper from the Explore Your World line! I cut out the middle of my tag and used some cellophane from an old package to add to the middle of my tag just to give it some visual interest. Here is a close up:

I popped up all the stickers on pop dots to give more textrue to my card. Often when I do this with thinner planner stickers I add them first to a piece of cardstock then add the pop dots to pop them up. In the case of my “hello sunshine” sticker I added it to silver cardstock and when I cut it out I left a slight edge showing to accent the silver words even more. I added a very small star circle sticker to the top of my tag in lieu of twine or ribbon since I plan on mailing this card out to one of my friends this next week! These little planner stickers are great in place of brads on projects where you don’t want the bulk!

I hope you will play along with us in honor of World Card Making Day and create a fun card using this sketch! If you do make sure and visit us at Paper House Creates and post your card there so we can see your amazing work and be inspired! I will be posting cards throughout the month of October in honor of World Card Making Day so make sure an follow me on Instagram (lisantexas) to see my latest creation!!

World Cardmaking Day 2019 – Card Inspiration!

Happy World Cardmaking Day 2019! Today, at Paper House, we’ve got some card inspiration to share with you! Our Creative Team has several talented cardmakers and we can’t wait to share what they have been up to with you!

First up let’s check out some inspiration from Lisa! Lisa is a master of clean and simple with solid design principles!

Our cut apart cards within the patterned paper collections make it easy to have a sentiment and simple base for your cards!

We think our 3D Stickers are a great addition to all craft projects and they really shine on cards!
This combination from Lisa showcases both our Butterfly Washi Tape and our Faux Enamel Stickers.
You can’t go wrong with a themed card and Lisa knocks it out of the park with this Wonder Woman card!

Another one of our Creative Team Members known for her cards is Samantha. Samantha also keeps things clean and simple, making it easy to see how to replicate her beautiful cards!

Tucking a puffy clip into her card really makes this card pop!
Our 3D Stickers make a great focal point for your cards.
We’ve got you covered if you are creating for a Potterhead!

We’d love to see what cards you are making today! Share them with us over in Paper House Creates on Facebook!

Stargazer Wedding Card

Hello! Samantha here today with a Stargazer wedding card. While Stargazer might not be your first thought when you go to create a wedding card, I’ve found that it can make for a really stunning one. The rich colors and starry motifs can make the perfect background for an elegant wedding card.

Supplies: Stargazer Night Sky Foil Paper, Stargazer Ultra Violet Foil Paper, Eat, Drink, and be Married 3D Stickers, To Have & To Hold Cardstock Multi Pack, White Card Stock, Black Card Stock, Dimensional Adhesive

My cousin is getting married in October, so I needed to make a wedding card. I found out that their wedding color is purple, so I set out to create a purple wedding card. I love the deep shades of purple in Stargazer, so I thought that it just might work.

I chose a mix of both lighter colored sheets of Stargazer and darker ones, but I made sure to crop the paper to really focus on the purple swirls. I used both white and black card stock as a base for the card since Stargazer has both white and black and dark and light elements to it.

To make this card a wedding card (instead of just a really pretty Stargazer card) I added 3D stickers from Eat, Drink, and Be Married. I also used flat stickers from the To Have & To Hold Cardstock Multi Pack.

I love the silver foil accents on the stickers. They add an extra touch that’s just perfect for a special occasion like a wedding.

Have you used Stargazer for any different themed cards or layouts?

Harry Potter Card and Matching Envelope

Hello! Samantha here with you. In case you didn’t know, I am a full on lover of all things Harry Potter. However, even if you’re not a crazy fan like me, you probably have someone in your life who is. Today I’m sharing a Harry Potter card and matching envelope that you can create for that HP fan in your life.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope Small

Supplies: Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper, Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper, Harry Potter™ Chibi Faux Enamel Stickers, Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers, Black Card Stock, Gold Card Stock, Dimensional Adhesive

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-004 Small

I really wanted these cute Chibi stickers to take front and center, so I framed them with the Harry Potter™ Gryffindor Tags Foil Paper and some gold card stock. It’s hard to do these awesome faux enamel stickers justice in a photo, but (as I hope you can see) these stickers are framed in gorgeous shiny gold. There are so many cute Harry Potter Chibi stickers that you could easily customize your card for the recipient by switching out the characters I chose for your recipients favorite characters.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-003 Small

I used Harry Potter™ Hogwarts at Night Foil Paper for my background and layered it all on a black card stock base. I left a greeting off the outside of the card. This lends to the clean appearance and allows me to customize the greeting on the inside of the card to match the occasion. The final size of my Harry Potter card measures 6″ long by 3″ tall.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-001 Small

To complete this set, I created a matching envelope for the card. You can send fun patterned paper envelopes like this through the mail as long as the address is clear. I used the Harry Potter™ Planner Stickers to create space for both send to and return address.

Harry Potter Birthday Card and Matching Envelope-002 Small

This Harry Potter card and matching envelope may not be your Hogwarts letter, but it still should be a pretty fun piece of mail to receive!

Marbelous Birthday Cards

Hello! Samantha here, and today I have something a little bit different for you. I have a set of 3 Marbelous birthday cards. I wanted to show you how many different options you have for card making with Paper House Stickers. All the cards use Marbelous paper as their base, they all use the same basic layout for the card, and they’re all even the same theme. However, by mixing and matching different types of stickers you get very different looks for each card.

Since I’m sharing 3 different cards today, I’ll share a photo of each individual card and list the supplies right afterwards.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Birthday 3D Stickers, Kawaii Hearts Faux Enamel Stickers

This is the most elegant of the cards. I chose a to use some of the Marbelous card stock that has gold foil to match the gold in the 3D sticker and faux enamel stickers.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Emoji Birthday 3D Sticker, Kawaii Not? Washi Tape, Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers, Kawaii Cupcakes Puffy Clips

This card is a bit more fun. I created texture by using a puffy clip for my focal point and a 3D sticker for my greeting. To create the border I paired a shiny silver rice paper with some cupcake washi tape.

Supplies: Marbelous 12″ Paper Pad, Magical Faux Enamel Sticker,Kawaii Not? Rice Paper Borders, Kawaii Epoxy Stickers

This last card is completely whimsical, as I made it with my soon to be 5 year old niece in mind. A little rainbow rice paper is the perfect starting point for some magical stickers. This card uses mostly flat stickers (I sneaked in a small enamel heart) to make it easy to mail, but the fun faux enamel sticker adds a special touch to the card.

There you have it; a trio of Marbelus birthday cards.
