4 Easy Paint Sample Craft Ideas for Cards

Today inspired by all the trips we have made to the hardware store to buy paint for the house I’m sharing a Paint Sample Craft. All of these cards are super easy to make- and take under 10 mins each!


Why is it so impossible to find the correct shade of grey? Grey can look blue in one light and purple in another. So tricky!

I’m taking a break from home improvements to whip up this typography-inspired Paint chip card with some samples lying around

I am currently obsessed with the ampersand sign. I seem to be seeing it everywhere and each time I love it a bit more! There is something so fancy about it. 


I printed an ampersand on regular paper and then temporarily adhered it onto a paint swatch. Using the Amplify scissors, I cut around the ampersand carefully.


And then I did the same with the aqua paint swatch and nestled the positive and negatives together.

I am totally digging this aqua and pink color combo. Such a fresh color scheme that looks so pretty! An easy Paint Sample Craft that made me smile.


These days, it seems to me that I am always searching for the right card I need for any given moment. This search usually happens 5 mins before I need to wear my boots and head out in the car to an event. So, I decided that I need to have a bunch of blank cards on hand. Problem solved.

For this Paint Sample Craft Card I cut a few different colored paint samples into small rectangles, adhered them onto the card front, and then added punched hearts on top!

All of these paint sample craft are super easy to make- and take under 10 mins each. Nothing like spending a few minutes to make a handmade gift that will make someone smile. To add pops of bright color to these cards, I used paint sample chips. I love the end result!


I show you how to use some of the new Fiskars/ Teresa Collins punches (in pretty pink!) to make these cards with more photos & instructions that can be found by clicking/tapping here.

For this paint sample craft card, I used some leftover paper scraps, punched out feather shapes, and added it onto a white card front. Such a simple idea and it turns out colorful!
