You don’t always have to use Tiny Accessories when it comes to cardmaking. In fact, Susan was able to use the Blossom Accessory Set and the Frolic Tiny Border to make some fresh spring cards.

From The Heart

There’s one thing you need before you start card making; paper (and templates of course!). Susan loves using the From The Heart Kwik Card Kit to make her spring cards. This kit has a variety of colorful paper as well as sentiment cards to fit multiple occasions ranging from a new baby, a wedding, or just a fun welcome card.

Are You Stuck?

When you’re making cards, sometimes you can get stuck thinking that ‘it looks bland’ or ‘it looks like its missing something’. This thought is an expected companion for any craft, but we challenge you to think of layering or adding elements to ward of those thoughts. Are your tulips (blossom 4) looking bland, layer some petals on top to add some more dimension. Does your butterfly (Blossom 3) look a little lifeless? Add some fun enamel dots.

Negative Space

If you’ve taken an art class, you’ve probably heard of the concept of negative and positive space. That same concept can be applied to card making. Instead of layering, try cutting out edges and create negtaive space!

How To Create a Felt Bouquet

Susan recently received a gift from her father in the form of a handmade wooden vase, and after contemplating its use for months, she decided to put it to some decorative use.

Some September Sunshine

Mindy recently visited Linder Farms with her mother and daughters. Linder Farms is one of her favorite places to go in the fall since they do everything from pumpkin patches, hey rides, donuts, and even…sunflower fields. Mindy and her troop loved goofing off within arms reach of these bright flowers, and she was even more excited to use her September Kiwi Club Kit to scrapbook this memory.
