Share Kindness Etsy Shop (plus GIVEAWAY)

Hello. As the Share Handmade Kindness Challenge is winding down, I want to share some exciting news to continue the kindness.


I've had the pleasure of helping Jennifer with this challenge and when we sent out goodie boxes to tell people about the challenge, these quote cards were a hit...

A little bit about these cards...
These playful "Random Quotes of Kindness" are intended for just that: sharing a bit of unexpected kindness...anywhere and everywhere. Put one in a kid's lunch box. Leave another of the windshield of stranger's car at the grocery store. Tape one to a dressing room mirror (with the washi tape that is included). Send one in the mail to a friend. Be creative and spread kindness! 

Many of the recipients used them up quickly... so I (with Jennifer's blessing) decided to open an Etsy shop to sell them. My shop is called the Share Kindness Shop and you can find it HERE. The cards are available in two different styles. 

The regular style which can be found HERE...
 

or the speech bubble version that can be found HERE...

The best part? Twenty percent of the proceeds will go to the Kind Campaign- an amazing organization that is working to end bullying. 

These cards are awesome on there own, but I wanted to share a few examples of cards I created with them. They make quick cards and are the perfect size for pocket page scrapbooking. 

Here's the set of cards I created using them and Mama Elephant's Lunar Animals Stamp set...

One of the dies in THIS wonky stitches die set works perfectly with the quote card size and does a faux stitch around the edges. I die-cut a speech bubble to highlight the quote. I used THIS paper pad to add some interest to the background. 

A closer look...






I die-cut fun foam using THESE coordinating dies and adhered them behind the animal images to add some dimension. I adhered the quote slightly off center from the foam behind it to created a colored shadow. I finished off the cards by using THIS pen to make the eyes pop and adhering everything down to THESE card bases. I'm really liking this smaller size of cards! 

GIVEAWAY
Want to win a set of these cards for you and your friend? Just leave a comment below naming a friend you will give the extra set to and why they are awesome. I will pick FIVE winners! You have until Saturday, December 5th at Midnight EST to enter.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

  7. I REALLY love the inspiration behind these cards, and LOVE even more, that you're donating a portion of your proceeds, to an anti-bullying organization!! As the mother of a child, that has fallen victim to bullying in the past, I can certainly appreciate this cause, bc I've also seen firsthand, just how powerful a kind word can be!!

    I think these would be AWESOME in Jacob's lunchbox, so I'd love to enter your giveaway!! That said, if I were fortunate enough to win, I'd love to share the extra set with my sister, Julie!! She's an OR nurse, and I think she could really take her patients minds off their impending surgery, with a few kind words :)

  12. I'd give the set to my "big sister" (she's my best friend, but she calls me her little sister, so...). She just lost her "fur-baby" and is heartbroken. Actually, I might give them to her husband so he can post notes around the house for her.

  16. I would definitely send these cards to my best friend and her mother. My best friend has a daughter that is oh so creative adn I know they enjoy opening cards adressed to them. I would send them to her mom because she is a fellow crafter (quilts, mod podge ouzzles, etc).

  17. Thank you for the opportunity to win, I will share it with my sister, that is also my best friend. We have been knitting scarves and hats for the homeless and would be nice to share these cards with more people to do the same and rejoice the life of another human being even for one day.

  18. These cards are really lovely and have the added bonus of making someone's day. I would give the extra set to my crafty friend, Sylvie, who is always doing generous things for people, least of which is sharing her wonderful home cooking. Thnaks for the chance to win.

  19. I got back into crafting thankfully to my beautiful friend Laura Anis! So, it only seems fair for us to win together & get her back to crafting as well. She does so much for everyone else. Always goes above & beyond & she deserves such gorgeous cards to show her that she's very much appreciated.

  20. Heather, these are awesome and so sweet you are donating a portion to anti-bullying. It's so sad to see these poor kids having to deal with this, plus peer pressure and everything else that destroys self-confidence. My friend Evilo never misses sending cards for almost every holiday. She would love to share kindness with others. Thanks for all you do to help this world in more ways than one!

  21. I would give the set to my daughter's teacher. This is a school for autistic children and the cards are so cute, the message so relevant. I can really see her and the other teachers using these as another way to encourage the students if they are having a tough day. I've been working on making tags with Tim Holtz Crazy Birds, but I like the simple, encouraging words of these messages a lot.

  22. I have a friend who has Lupus and sending encouragement when dealing with challenges is important to me, as I have MS and we sometimes face the same issues. These cards are adorable!

  30. These are so gorgeous - I love the original cards and your little cuties as well! I would share the extra set with my Mom as she also loves to give lots of cards but doesn't make them (she has me to make them for her to give!). She's the kindest person I know so I would love to surprise her with these!

  34. I have a conversation bubble stamp and was not sure what to do with it. Popping it up looks so cool. I'd like to gift a set to my stamping Aunt who spends her winters in Florida but has to leave her crafting supplies in Michigan because she doesn't have room to take it.

  35. These cards are the cutest things. I would share this set with my lovely friend Laura Anis. Not only is she an amazing crafter, but she is the most noble woman I have ever met. Extremely amazing friend, mom & wife. She deserves a little surprise, because she does everything for others so selflessly. Thanks for the giveaway & beautiful ideas.

  37. Hi Heather :) I would give it to my youngest sister, because we love to be creative together, and we get together quite often for a "hobby kveld" (a creative evening). So this would be inspiring for the both of us :) Love from Silje :)

  40. Your kindness cards are lovely and so needed in our society...to remind people that there is kindness lurking a round every corner, and when one receives this reminder...they smile and acknowledge the kindness. What's so neat is the anominity of them. I would love to have a set and also a set to give my best friend Pamela Steele, who is so with me on this kindness campaign. We both along with my granddaughter age 15, go out and do RAK pretty often. It's so fun and makes us smile.
