Have you ever pushed your creativity? Well, for these cards, that was my aim. I set a timer for 20 minutes, pulled out some supplies, and decided to see how many I could make. I failed a little and finished a couple cards after the timer went off, but in all, I made SIX cards in THIRTY minutes. That’s FIVE minutes per card!
I used a combination of printed cards from the Pick-Me-Up Boxed Cards, some white cardstock from my stash, and stickers and die cuts from the Confetti Wishes, Pick-Me-Up, Wild Child, and Turn the Page collections.
This first card has a white cardstock base. I used a border punch on some patterned paper from the Confetti Wishes 6×6 Paper Pad and added a few puffy stickers from the same collection. I added some spray mist splatters in multiple colors to mimic confetti!
This next card was actually the simplest of the bunch. I took a pre-printed “Thanks” card from the Pick-Me-Up Boxed Cards and added a rainbow die cut from the Wild Child collection. Easy peasy!
This card uses a base from the boxed set as well. I added a chipboard sticker from the Turn the Page collection plus a lemon puffy sticker from the Pick-Me-Up collection to a white cardstock banner. I love how the sentiment really ties into the whole “making lemonade from lemons” idea.
The fourth card was another super simple one. I used some inks and the smooshing technique to create a soft background on some white cardstock. When it was dry, I popped it up and added a sentiment from one of the Pick-Me-Up swatch books – there are lots of great card sentiments in there!
This card was a fun one to make. I added a 3×4 piece of white cardstock to some packaging, poured in some sequins from the Auburn Lane collection, and attached it to another one of the pre-printed boxed cards. A few coordinating stickers from the Confetti Wishes collection finished it up!
This last one is my fave and was, again, really easy to make. I adore this cut file from Paige Evans and you may remember me using it on a layout I shared here a few weeks back. I happened to have an extra floral piece sitting on my desk from that project and I simply added it to a white card base, created a sentiment from the Confetti Wishes stickers, added a few sequins from the Auburn Lane collection, and added a few drops of gold mist to tie it all together. I also wanted to show you that there are a bunch of circle stickers included in the Confetti Wishes sticker book that make great envelope seals!
