Hi there. Today I’m sharing a quick tip video showing how to create “random quotes of kindness” cards.
Awhile back, I shared a kindness package I created to send out to friends in honor of my Share Handmade Kindness Challenge. In it, I included a set of what I call “random quotes of kindness” cards that I had printed. These little notes are great for placing in your child’s lunch box, on a stranger’s windshield, or just to have on hand to give out to someone who needs a little pick me up. My friend is currently selling them on Etsy HERE, but I also wanted to share a way that you can create your own.
For my little “random quotes of kindness,” I used a Simon Says Stamp speech bubble die. However, you can use any basic shape die, punch or cut piece. Small stamped images are fun for these little cards, so I used a few planner stamp sets by Sakuralala and paired them with sentiments from Clearly Besotted. I did some quick coloring of all the images with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
If you don’t have planner stamp sets, take another look at the stamp sets you already have. Many of them include tiny images that would be perfect for creating these cards. I plan on having the teachers at my kid’s school write notes on the back and pass them out at other schools that don’t have a lot of parent support to provide encouragement. However, I am completely *in love* with these little stamps from Sakuralala!
If you are interested in the printed cards that I mentioned in the video, you can head HERE. This is a peek at what they look like…
