Sunday School Craft

Published by at 1 26 am under Stampin' Up! Projects,Valentines

Tomorrow afternoon the older Sunday School children (tweens and early teens) are gathering to decorate cookies and make Valentine cards to deliver to the elderly. It was my job to come up with a card they could make. Additionally, I’m not able to be there, so it had to be a card I could (in about 2 minutes) show and explain to a non-stamping Mom. So, here it is:


I have everything pre-stamped and cut, so all they have to do is put them together, write their Bible verse/message on the inside and deliver them! Many items I used on this project are retired items — what a great way to use them up!!!

I have the hearts stamped so they just need to cut them out, adhere to a pink piece and cut around it to border the heart in pink. The 4 x 5 1/4 piece of DP is a fun sheet from the retired Petals and Paisley pack. The sheets I used have a variety of prints on them, so it almost looks like we’ve used many papers and layered them, so that really worked out well for this super easy project. The ribbon was wrapped around the DP panel before it was adhered to the card. I also stamped the sentiment on the top. Once this panel is adhered to the card, they’ll just need to attach the heart and add a little bit of the pink gingham ribbon and done!!! I do think these will be rather cute for the children to make and deliver, especially considering how ultra easy they are!!!

The layout for this card was taken from Sarah Green’s card seen here. Sarah is this week’s featured stamper, and oh my, what a gallery!!! Iabsolutely love Sarah’s card, and my case in no way does justice to her original, but sometimes you just need to do certain things, and tonight I needed this children’s craft project, and Sarah’s wonderfully simple layout surely fit the bill!!!

  • Stamps: Always, Warmest Regards – retired
  • Paper: SU Old Olive. Office Max Pink. PTI White. Petals and Paisley DP by SU – retired.
  • Ink: Versa Fine Onxy Black. Rose Romance – SU retired.
  • Accessories: Ribbons

That’s it for this project. My tomorrow’s upload will be something along the *pretty* lines, featuring a new release from Flourishes — you surely won’t want to miss it, especially if you like *pretty*. Thanks much for stopping in!!! Truly appreciate it!!!

    So cute, Sharon, and easy enough for the kids to do. Ann Maki was telling me in school that you were getting a card together for them. I knew it would be awesome. Stay warm.

    Great idea to use retired stuff, plus to pre-assemble & stamp…..although the highlight of my 8-year-olds’ Valentine project is that THEY get to STAMP!!! I saved all my old stamp pads for THAT!!! Beautiful card, as usual!

  9. I love what you put together for the kids to make! They will be so proud of them, and I’m sure the recipients will love them, too!!!!

  10. One beautiful card after another! What a treat to come to one place and find so many pretty things to look at. This is so sweet and feminine!
