White Washing!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday…..but sort of like a Tuesday! Since the launch of the Year End Closeout was yesterday, I posted about all of that so you didn’t miss out! So that means today I’m sharing the fun Technique “Tuesday”. It is all about White Washing!!!

White Washing, www.LaurasStampPad.com

How fabulous is this magnolia from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set?!?!?! Beautiful! I am loving it so much! I had fun with different color combinations and variations of the White Washing Technique. Simply White Washing like the one above….or adding color like this one!!

Adding Color to White Washing, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Simply adding a little color with a Sponge Dauber takes this technique to a whole new level! I love it so much! Then I thought I would try it on green so that the leaves are already green and I would just do the flower! Here’s that look!

Cut It Out!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! Today, I wanted to share this adorable simple card that is just perfect for any friend. We are cut out to be friends!!! Blushing (Bride) hehe Cut it out!!! 🙂

Cut It Out, www.LaurasStampPad.com

My puns aren’t funny?? I tried and cracked myself up! It doesn’t take much though! Anyway back to this cute card using the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper!

I started with a Whisper White card base and layered on some Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I added the greeting from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink. I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch out the greeting. To give the card some texture, I added a few loops of Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the back of the greeting, securing it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Friend Like You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is another option using that same paper pack and style of card! I did the ribbon a bit different for a fun look! The greeting for this one is from the Love What You Do Stamp Set!

These 2 cards are very similar in style but different looks with the patterns of paper and ribbon! I love when that happens!!! Which do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Gobble Gobble!!!

Gobble  Gobble, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I just wanted to pop in and say Happy Thanksgiving to each and everyone of you! You all mean so much to me and my family. I’m blessed to have you in my life whether it is a blog reader, fellow stamper (in person or via screen), or social media follower. You all mean so much to me and feel like family.

Today, I’m spending the day with my family and then this weekend we get to spend it with Brad’s family. It’s the perfect holiday! Family, fun, and food is the trifecta of a perfect holiday! Am I right?? I also keep feeling like this is Claire’s first Thanksgiving because she will be able to participate more and eat the food and all. Then my mind goes crazy thinking about how just a year ago she was so little!

May you have safe travels, good times, and a wonderful day!!!

Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble!

3D Embossing Folder Plate!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! I’m keeping it simple today and sharing with you the 3D Embossing Folder Plate! Many of you have been asking me why your Embossing Folders aren’t going through and this is the trick!!

3D Embossing Folder Plate, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This fun blue plate has been a product that Stampin’ Up released to help us with embossing. Unfortunately since it was a product release after the Annual Catalog came out, it hasn’t been in an actual catalog. So while it is available, it’s been under the radar kind of!

The blue plate is a bit thicker than the clear plates for die cutting and embossing. When using Stampin’ Up’s 3D Embossing Folders, 1 clear plate is not thick enough and 2 is way too thick! So rather than using cardboard shims and getting super frustrated, we have the fun blue plate!!!

Check out all of this in action with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate in the video below or click here! Be sure to give the video a thumbs up if you liked it and don’t forget to subscribe if you are new.

Christmas Cheer!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! It seems a bit odd to have a post on Christmas Cheer when it’s actually Thanksgiving Week but….. I still love your Thanksgiving but I have to work on my Christmas cards too!!!

Christmas Cheer, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is one of those quick and simple cards that you can whip up in no time at all. It uses up every inch of your designer series paper too! You can even call it a One Sheet Wonder if you would like!

I started with a card base of Very Vanilla measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I like to use this size when wrapping ribbon around my card because it uses less. Going around the card at 4-1/4″ is better than going around it at 5-1/2″. Although I went around it twice so who is really saving ribbon here?!?!?! Next, I cut the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper into 4″ x 4″ squares. This makes 9 squares from one 12″ x 12″ piece of designer paper! Great for making multiples!

Toile Tidings, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Using the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, I added the greeting in the lower right corner. There are so many greetings in various sizes so it’s perfect to mix and match and have fun! Then I added some ribbon. The card up top uses the Real Red Curly Ribbon and this one here uses the Garden Green Double Stitched Ribbon. Another option is to use the other side of the designer paper which is Garden Green. There are lots of great ways to mix up this card to make it a little different but still use the same products!

Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below! Click the supply list below to get started on your Christmas Cheer cards today!
