Blog Hop: Kids birthday cards & party items

art-with-heart-team-blog-hop-logo-currentDear Crafters,

Today I’m excited to bring you a blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today we focus on the kids in our lives, from birthday cards to party ideas.

Sale-a-bration continues and this week we have three new additional items you can earn for free with a $90 order – ask me how!

Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with some of the products in the Occasions catalogues.

For my projects, I have used the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set, Balloon Pop-up Thinlits and the Sunshine Wishes Dies.

I used some of the Designer Series Paper stacks to create these cute little napkin fold treat holders. The sentiment was perfect too!


And what party is complete without cake, right?!!! Making these cupcake toppers with a stamp, punch and tooth pick, creates a wonderful suite for any party! (and yes, I baked these chocolate cupcakes just to take the photos for you!)



I think this makes a lovely birthday suite for those special little kiddies in your life, without spending a fortune!

Thanks for visiting today.

Don’t forget to email me at to request your copy of any Catalogue or to ask about joining the Art With Heart team.

Let’s keep this blog hop hopping. Next up we have the lovely, Rachel Woollard.

Kids Cards

Napkin Fold Origami Card

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you a funky oragami style card that is something totally different!

Napkin Fold Origami Handmade Card

To make this card I started with an 8″ x 8″ piece of cardstock. Score at 2″ & 6″ rotate 90 degrees and score the same.

Using the diagonal plate on your Scoreboard, score at 4″ & 6″ on each side.

The folding is hard to explain, but you may be able to follow from the diagrams below.

Here is the belly band that goes around the card to keep it closed which is 9″ x 1 1/4″ and the DSP is 9″ x 1″.

The diamond is 2″ x 2″ and the DSP is 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

And here it is opened up!

The Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper to decorate this card is:

8 squares of DSP 1 3/4″ cut in half diagonally to form triangles

2 squares of DSP 2 1/2″ cut in half diagonally to form triangles

1 square of 3 3/4″ for the middle of the card to write your message


This was such a fun card to make and not as difficult as it appears. I am sure I will be making plenty more of these in the months to come as both my girls and their friends have multiple parties!!!!
