something for the kids

I love this wee robot set called 'Lots of Bots' - it has such cute stamps. I made this card super fast which is sort of what you need to do when giving cards to young kids. They really aren't great appreciators of your time and effort when making cards. But if there is a nice picture on a card they will stop for at least 5 seconds to look at it! hehe

I really do enjoy 'colouring in' stamps, it must take me back to my childhood days. It is soooo relaxing - and using the wonderful Stampin' Up! Blender Pens it's so easy to get great results. The Blender Pens allow you to pick up a touch of colour from your stamp pads (the lids not directly on to the pad themselves) and paint like a water colourist! IF you would like to see how easy it is to use these great tools contact me today to find out how I can show you.

I used Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point and Real Red on this card. Don't you love how a bit of crimped card stock can just lift a project! Come back and visit later this week to see another card for the slightly older child that I have to show you.

Have a fabulous Wednesday!!! xx


  1. Cool card, Julia. 'Lots of Bots' is my 'go to' set for kids cards right now, too, esp that 'Happy Birthday Human' stamp. You've done a fab job there - I love the brads and the crimping. I feel a CASE coming on......

  2. This is excellent Julia, I love this stamp set and what you have done with it.

  3. Love it! It's such a fun card....
