10 Cards 1 Kit- J'adore

A card kit to absolutely "J'adore"! I made 10 beautiful Paris themed Valentine and Galentine cards using our new "J'adore" card kit, which includes: 

This card kit is an amazing value (our best to date) at $70 for only $39.95! 

The only other extra supply that I used was the "Paris Besties" coordinating dies. It saved me a lot of time to have my images die cut out. The coordinating dies even include the sentiments! 

 

Video Tutorial

I did all of my stamping, die cutting and paper piecing before starting my 10 cards. Check out my video above to see the card making process for each design. 

 

 

Something I love about this card kit is how large the stamps and the couple die in the kit are. Because of this, I was able to create a few larger sized cards including this fabulous slimline card. 

I used the large "J'adore" sentiment from the "Paris Besties" stamp set to be the focal point on this card. I decorated the word with one of the girls, and the small accessory images from the stamp set. To finish the sentiment, I added "I J'adore You" across the Eiffel Tower and glued the entire word to a text pattern paper card panel. 

Most of my cards today were finished off with a sprinkling of either the "J'adore" embellishment mix or the "clay hearts" embellishment mix. 

 

 

The "Paris Besties" 6x8 stamp set lends itself well to scene building. I made this cute scene using a cloud stencil, a grass die, the Eiffel Tower, a girl and the moped. 

I enjoy using mattes to frame my scenes, it's an easy and simple way to add a subtle detail to your card designs. 

 

 

Card three features the "Paris Print" layering stencil included in the card kit. I blended on light blue card stock. I used a light hand and "Black Soot" Distress Oxide Ink to blend through the first stencil. I used "Broken China" to blend through the second stencil. I used "Abandoned Coral" to blend through the hearts on the third stencil and "Black Soot" to blend through the Eiffel tower and Paris details on the third stencil. 

I glued a white stitched rectangle matted on red card stock to the center of my stenciled background. On it, I glued an Eiffel tower and a white heat embossed sentiment. 

My card panel was matted with red card stock and added to my A2 top folding card base. 

 

 

Card four is my personal favorite, I love the rainbow umbrellas! I paper pieced the couple and all the umbrellas using the "Umbrella Couple" die set included in the card kit. Many of the sentiments fit well in the center of the umbrellas, so I chose three. On the remaining umbrellas I added a white clay heart to the centers. 

 

 

I always try to make at least one shaker card for my 10 card 1 kit videos. This time, I made an A7 shaker using an oval die and the cheetah print pattern paper. Inside the shaker I added silver glitter card stock, another umbrella couple, some iridescent heart sequins, and the clay heart embellishments. 

Below the shaker, I added another sentiment, and matted the entire shaker panel onto a red matte. 

 

 

Let's create another scene using more stamped images, a cloud stencil and a grass die! The background was created with blue ink and a cloud stencil. I glued a grass border to the bottom of the panel and  arranged the girl, moped, lantern and outdoor table set stamped images on top. 

 

 

My seventh card features another "Paris Print" stenciled background I created with "Black Soot", "Picked Raspberry" and "Spun Sugar" Distress Oxide inks. I cut the stenciled piece down to 5". From the center of the panel, I die cut a circle.

Using the same circle and a slightly larger one, I created a blue circle frame to go around my circle window. Behind the window, I added vellum. This helped to mute my background. I inlaid the stenciled background circle back inside and added the panel to a teal 5.25' matte. In the center of the circle, I added a sentiment and a girl walking her dog. 

 

 

Switching back to a more romantic card, I decided to use another umbrella couple that I paper pieced in traditional Valentine colors. I added them to a cream panel with some die cut hearts. 

 

 

Card nine was created by die cutting two heavy weight white rectangle frames that I layered behind a text patterned paper frame. This added some nice dimensional interest to the card. To the left side of the frame, I added a lantern. 

Inside the frame, I added a cloud background I made with a cloud stencil and yellow ink. To the bottom of the cloud panel, I added a strip of gray card stock, a sentiment, a moped and a girl. 

 

 

My final slimline card background was made with a cloud stencil and pink ink. Below the clouds, I added two stitched hillsides. The back one I glued flat and the front hill I popped up with foam tape.

On the front hill, I added a gray road, a moped, girl and lantern. I glued an Eiffel tower and poodle on the second hill. As a final touch, I added two pink hearts with white heat embossed sentiments. 

That finishes off my cards today! Thank you for watching and I'll see you next time.
