20 Quick and Easy Cards!
Did you know that you can create 20 quick and easy cards with Stampin’ Up!’s Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit?! I received this kit as a gift at the Founder’s Circle I attended in September. This kit includes everything you need except for adhesive and scissors. The stamp set has 7 stamps that include 6 different greetings and a “Made for you by me” stamp for the back of your handmade cards. The cards come in a variety of sizes: 4 of the cards are 3″ x 3″, 6 are 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and 10 are 3 1/2″ by 5″ and envelopes are Whisper White and Crumb Cake. Here’s all the different supplies that come in a box perfect for gift giving:
All those little pieces are die-cut, just pop them out and they’re ready to use. Here’s the flyers showing the kit components and the samples that are included on the idea sheet:
And here’s a close up of the stamps and the acrylic block (this block is thinner than the acrylic blocks in our catalogs):
This stamp set and acrylic block is easily valued at $10-$12 which means the 20 quick and easy cards come in at about $1 each!
When I sat down to create the cards, I planned on making them exactly like the ones Stampin’ Up! made but I couldn’t resist doing my own thing 🙂 Here are the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cards I designed using only the supplies that came in the kit:
I stamped my cards using only the Thinking of You, Thank You, and Happy Birthday greetings since those are the ones I use most often. I also cut some of the die-cut banners so I could pull them apart and have them appear to go from one side of the card to the other like this:
No one really knows what’s under all our layers, right? 😉 Here’s the 3″ x 3″ cards too:
I’ll post the other 10 cards (these are the ones that are a note card size 3 1/2″ x 5″) on my Facebook page:

The Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit is a great gift for anyone that likes to craft and may not have a lot of supplies to create cards from scratch. This kit has everything needed to create a variety of cards except for scissors (to cut the twine) and adhesive. Even an experienced crafter like myself enjoyed creating 20 quick and easy cards from start to finish in only a couple of hours 🙂
