Card Ideas for Crafters
When people ask what my favorite thing to create is I usually say cards each time. Maybe it’s the quick win I feel of finishing a craft project. Probably because I get them done pretty fast when I do make cards. This is the inspiration behind showing you Card Ideas for Crafters on this post.

I’ll go through my card box today and show you what I have and we can chat about how I come up with my card ideas as a crafter.
Baby Card Idea From An Old Paper Pack
Do you scrapbook? If you do, or did, I bet you have tons of paper packs from scrapbooking kits just sitting around. I like to use up cute embellishments and paper to make fun cards like this baby card.
This next baby card idea is from some CUTE stickers (the duck) and I use a printed card (all the tiny baby-themed words fit perfectly).
I added the bubble stickers and stamped “Congratulations” on it for a FAST yet adorable, baby card. And of course, a card isn’t really finished without a cute bow somewhere! LOL
Card Ideas for Crafters With Stamps
This one is a kit from Close To My Heart. They have SUCH cute stuff. I love all the colors they use and their stamps are the best I’ve crafted with over the years.
These next 2 cards are from a Close To My Heart kit. They often have adorable paper packs that are so fun to make look amazing when done because they have instructions and ideas if you need them.
Isn’t that navy and yellow ADORABLE together?
This next one is a stamped birthday card idea. Perfect for the rocker dude (or dudette) in your life.
Often I like to cut the stamp out by eyeballing a border around the image and then I used a pop-dot to attach it above the kraft paper bar. I wrapped some twine around the bar for some dimension after I stamped “Happy Birthday.”
On the card itself (from Michaels) I also stamped a grunge-looking blotch before attaching anything. This stamp set is also from Close to My Heart.
More Stamped Card Ideas for Crafters
This stamped card was a fun one too. The little white flowers are from Walmart. They also come in burlap too and they are equally cute!!
Simply stamp the coffee cup image and use colored pencils to add some color and dimension. On this one, I even added some black sparkle to the stamped image swirls but that didn’t photograph very well.
I hope these are inspiring you to create some cards today too!
Let’s keep going...

You have so many GREAT ideas!
Chelly, I don’t exactly know where to write to you. I need someone’s help. I am trying to make a sweatshirt for my granddaughter with volleyball on it. I have a heat press and I had it at 301 degrees and 20 second. I took it off press and peeled when cold and the cover residue stayed on the print on the sweatshirt. Another shirt ruined. I have been reading all day and it says I should have a inkjet printer. And it also said a deskjet copier uses inkjet ink. I don’t have alot of money, I spent it all on cricut supplies.(lol)
But seriously, I want to get better at crafting. Been to 2 craft shows, made 20,00 the first show and nothing the 2nd show. Last week I had a yard sale and didn’t sell any craft items. I am going tomorrow to buy a inkjet printer and another sweatshirt, Sorry I talked your ear off, but can you help me please???
I get how it’s so hit and miss. And COVID isn’t helping. Try searching Pinterest for what’s selling now. that might help.
For the shirt, is it sublimation? I’ve only worked on vinyl so I’m not much help. So sorry that happenings though. It can be so frustrating when craft projects don’t turn out. I often buy dollar store shirts and items to practice one. Some times that doesn’t help if the material is really different.
