I’ve shared creations from two card kits (Simon Says Stamp’s January and Valentine’s kits) in the last few days, bit I still have one more for you. This is the Love From Lizi February kit. It’s my first Love From Lizi kit and I had so much fun playing with it!
Card 1 – Birthday Stripes
For my first card I decided to start with something quite straightforward. I used a cut apart from one of the 12×12 sheets as the base panel for my card. As it was a little narrower than my card base I added a strip of the gold glitter card to both the top and the bottom of the panel. I used the same glitter card to die cut my sentiment, and added that into the label area of the base panel. Finally I embellished by adding the Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Drops to the heart, as well as three in the lower left corner.

Card 2 – Diamond Birthday
Card 3 – Birthday Gift
For my third card I decided to use one of the colourable stickers. I then picked a patterned paper to be my base panel, and used the colours from the paper as the inspiration for my colouring. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers in pinks and yellows to colour the image as well as the sentiment sticker. I then stuck them to my patterned paper panel which I’d adhered to a pink card base.
Sweet Stampin’ – Girly
Card 4 – Sweet Birthday Moments
I really wanted to use the chalk label with the cupcake for my next card. I was going to put it on a panel of the cupcake patterned paper but it didn’t look right. Instead I chose the green patterned paper. I added a sticker tucked in behind the chalk look label, and topped it off with a die cut sentiment using the gold glitter card.
Card 5 – 60th Cascade
For card five I decided to make a focal point using the numbers from the stamp set. I chose my main numbers and stamped those in MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, then used Simon Says Stamp’s Barely Beige ink to add a cascade of numbers at random to create a line across the card. I added another gold glitter die cut sentiment, and finished off with some Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Drops.
Card 6 – Today Is Beautiful
Card number six again used one of the chalk-look pieces. I fussy cut the speech bubble and popped it up onto the yellow heart-patterned paper which I adhered to a black mat onto my card base. I added a sentiment sticker into the speech bubble and finished off with some heart stickers.

The House That Stamps Built – Words as Focal Point
Card 7 – The Life You Love
I decided to use the wooden hearts for card number seven. First I adhered a patterned paper panel to my pink card base, then I adhered three of the wooden hearts across the panel. I added a banner sentiment sticker along below them, and finished off with some of the Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Drops.
Power & Spark – Love to Sparkle
Moving Along With The Times – Love
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Love
Card 8 – Birthday Candles
Card eight uses one of the cut-aparts as a focal point. I trimmed it out and cut the sentiment off the bottom so I could use them as separate elements. I then did some tone-on-tone stamping and added balloons across my yellow card base. I added the candle panel to the card base using foam tape and adhered the sentiment portion to it. I added a dot of Bubblegum Blush Nuvo Drops to either end of the sentiment.

Card 9 – Balloon Cluster
My plan for card nine originally would have used ribbon as strings for the balloons, but I ended up deciding against that.I started by heat embossing five balloons with Simon Says Stamp’s Steel Navy embossing powder. I then fussy cut them out. I laid them on to my card base and used them as a guide to stamp my strings. I then adhered the three balloons in the background with double-sided tape and popped the foreground balloons up with foam tape. Finally I added a die cut gold glitter sentiment.
CASology – Together
Card 10 – Snippet Banners
For my final card I decided I would use up some snippets of the patterned papers as well as the glitter card. I die cut banners from the leftover little pieces of several patterned papers that I had used in my previous cards. I set aside the stars that were cut out and adhered gold glitter card behind the banners to give the look of gold stars on the banners.
Next I placed a line of black ribbon across the card and adhered the banners into place along the line. I added a sticker sentiment above the ribbon line, and finished off the card by embellishing with the stars that had come from the banners. I even added a few on the inside!

I had so much fun playing with this card kit. I really enjoyed coming up with the different designs. I think my favourites are two, nine and ten, but I’d love to hear which you liked most.
I have a lot of product left from the kit, and there’s a lot I didn’t even touch! The gilding flakes, sequins, mirror chevrons, and diamond paper clips. I’m sure I will get a lot more use from the kit, and I may even make another video with it if I can find the time to do so!
