Craftie Cafe: Planner Card No.2

Back again sharing a card I created using a planner stamp I got from Craftie Café. The planner stamp I’m using is Hero Arts – Girl Talk by Kelly Purkey and it’s all about encouragement and motivation. From a planner point of view it looks like something you would use on a date you had a big test, or simply going to the gym with a friendly reminder that ‘you can do it!’ But it also has a great Supermom (American spelling) image and words of encouragement that could be used on a card to give to someone who might need a little motivation or a little reminder that they’re awesome or that they’re super 

Here is the first card: 

As I was making this card I decided to take a few photos – so below you’ll also find some instructions as well as the supplies I used to create this card. 

Step 1: Start stamping your background. 
Note: Card front is slightly larger than 5.25 inches x 4.5 inches based on a large rectangle die.  

Step 2: Once the whole card font has been stamped die cut a large rectangle.
Step 3: Die cut three small circles (Lawn Fawn die) 
Step 4 Stamp the ‘you can do it’ in the center of each of the circles using black ink 
Step 5: Assemble card as shown – adhere to a pink card base and using foam tape adhere the three stamped circles to the card front. Finish off with twine and pink sequins for added interest.  

Craftie Café Supplies: 

Tape Runner/foam tape 
Scissors/Paper Trimmer 
White Card 
Pink Cardstock 
Versafine black ink
Altenew Ink
My Little Paper World – Rectangle Nesting Die TRIBAL 

This set has lots of small stamps – and well… I love small stamps and enjoy repetitive stamping. So I created a second card (below) using the same idea mentioned in the instructions. This time I stopped at three lines and added the never say never sentiment.   I'm not a planner girl but using lighter inks similar to what I've used in these cards would still allow you to write over them in your planners...

I didn’t stop there…here is the final card I created using this stamp set. 

I went with a monochrome look based on what was on my desk at the time but this card could be customised to any colour palette.  

Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by.
