Pals’ March Blog Hop is All about the Kids!

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is “It’s All About the Kids.” We hope that you will be inspired by the creations the Pals are sharing with you! Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I used the Just Kiddin’ 12 x 12 DSP (designer series paper) in the current mini-catalog for both of these cards. I only had a share of the DSP and didn’t get the bundle. After creating both of these, I’ve added the bundle and DSP to my next order.

Here are my two kids cards:

One of my very favorite pictures of my daughter when she was 4 and she has the same puffing face and crossed arms in the photo. I sent her a picture of the card and asked her why I chose these characters, and she knew exactly what I meant. I smiled the whole time I was making the card, including fussy cutting both characters.


  • The Berry Burst bases each measure 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 to make tent cards.
  • The HIP HIP card has a black mat measuring 5-3/8 by 4-1/8 inches.
  • The DSP for this card measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches.
  • Since I didn’t use a mat for the second card, the DSP measures 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • I trimmed a piece of coordinating DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for each envelope flap. I also punched a 1-inch circle out of DSP and ran it through my XYRON create-a-sticker for the envelope seal.
  • The white cardstock for the inside of each card measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches.


  • Unless otherwise noted, I used liquid glue to adhere the pieces of the card together.
  • Adhere the DSP to the cardstock base.
  • After fussy-cutting the kids, add dimensionals to the back and adhere to the DSP.
  • Stamp your sentiments and crop using a banner die from. Stylish Shapes die set.
  • I used a marker to outline the edges of each banner.
  • Add dimensionals to the back of the banner and adhere to the DSP.
  • For the inside, I stamped the sentiments and then adhered the white cardstock to the base of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished these coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal sets.
