Let’s Talk About Spring!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!! It’s the calm between 2 storms….or so they say! We had a snow all weekend this past weekend and supposedly rain and snow are coming this weekend. Who’s ready for Spring??? 63 More Days….not that I’m counting! In the meantime, being stuck inside means more time for cuddles and crafting, right? What do you do when you are stuck inside from a winter storm? Let me know in the comments below – Bake, Watch Movies, Craft, Clean, Nap??

Let's Talk About Spring, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am loving Butterflies right now! They are so fun because they look fabulous in every color. I think they are the perfect sign of Spring which I can’t wait for! They are also so uplifting and beautiful which makes them perfect for any occasion. As you can see here I used the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and coordinating punch! The inspiration for the colors came from the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and Sale-A-Bration Ribbon Pack. These have Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist in them. So much coordination to make it super easy!

I started with the card base in the 5 colors mentioned above. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered a strip of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 2″. Then using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set, I stamped the greeting in the lower portion. Some of them I stamped in the lower right corner and others I stamped under the designer paper. I used the coordinating ink color with the designer paper and ribbon. You could always mix and match colors for even more options!

For the butterflies, it is super easy to create lots of them because each time you stamp and punch you are getting 2 butterflies. The stamps are connected featuring both a big and small butterfly. I simply stamped twice for each card. The stamped image lines up perfectly in the punch as well. Each card has 4 butterflies – 3 on the outside and the 4th one on the inside! Some of the cards, I put a piece of Whisper White on the inside (4″ x 5-1/4″) and then placed the butterfly on it. This makes it pop more and also white to write on.

Also, I mixed an matched the butterflies. Some of the cards have 2 little on the front with 1 big butterfly and others have 2 big and 1 little! It’s so much fun to play with these and get different looks with the same stamp set. There are also 4 different types of butterflies in the set too! I love it!!! Bring on all of the butterflies!

I Made This!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited to share this card because I made this one and I super struggle with Man Cards!

I made this, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is quick and simple and simple and masculine. I just love bling, ribbons, and pinks so much that I struggle with masculine cards a lot. When I create a good one, I tend to make LOTS to use all year long.

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base. Next, I took a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Paper (3″ x 4″) and stamped the tree from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set. I used Mossy Meadow Ink for all of the images on this card. Then, I placed (NOT adhered…yet) this onto a piece of Crumb Cake measuring 4″ x 4″. I stamped the greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday along the top and bottom. I really really wanted my Stamparatus to work for the greeting and just notch the platform down for each greeting but the greeting was too long and the spacing was odd. Soooooo I just thought I would wing it and it was fabulous but this is also why I suggest not adhering it till after your greeting is stamped. Simply place the stamped designer paper on it so you can line things up. Then hold your breath and stamp. Just kidding it’s only 3 times and it’s okay if they aren’t perfectly straight across or evenly spaced. Mine sure aren’t and it’s still fabulous! Also, always remember there are 2 sides to every piece of paper! 😉

After stamping the greeting, added the stamped designer paper and adhere it to the card front! For the finishing touch, I tied some Linen Thread along the spine of the card, looping around 3 times. Since linen thread  is so thin, I always double knot it before tying the bow! This way it is nice and tight around the card and if you think bows are not masculine, you can leave it as a knot.

Check out the supply list below to recreate this card for all of the men in your life! Also, if you purchase all the supplies to make this card, you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! Woot Woot!!!

You Are Loved!!!

Posted on

Valentine’s Day is around the corner…..okay more like around this corner and that corner. BUT that means you still have plenty of time to create some fabulous cards for those you love or treats for kid’s classmates and teachers. Some like to think that Valentine’s Day is all hearts and chocolates for your significant other. I like to think of Valentine’s Day as a day to share your love with those around you…..like everyone. Also, I prefer cupcakes over chocolate! 🙂 This card saying You Are Loved is perfect for anyone!

You are loved, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Tell me this….how do you feel when someone says I love you to you?? For me, I feel warm and fuzzy. I feel like I matter and someone cares about me and that makes me very happy. Since that is the way I feel, I like to think others feel the same. This is why we should always send or share our love! I’m pretty sure my brother would roll his eyes if I said I love you to his face. So to spare the embarrassment, I send a card…after all I do love him and every other member of my family. My sister doesn’t roll her eyes! 🙂

This card is quick and simple. I started  with a Whisper White card base and stamped the hearts down the left side. The hearts are from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog and they are stamped in Flirty Flamingo!! Next, I took a 3″ square piece of the All My Love Designer Series Paper and layered it onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I added this to the card front!

All My Love Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch. I added the greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture! Using the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, I tied a bow and added it with a Mini Glue Dot. On the bottom of the card, I added a few Clear Epoxy Hearts. The perfect card for Valentine’s Day…..or any day of the year!

Reveal of the Incredible Like You Project Kit!!!

Posted on

Project Kits are awesome because all the supplies are pre-cut and prepared for you to just relax and create! The Incredible Like You Project Kit is even more fabulous because it has bright colors and fabulous designs. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it. You all know I love bright colors!!!

Incredible Like You Project Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

They are so beautiful and really simple to assemble. I love the greetings in the coordinating Incredible Like You Stamp Set! Perfect for any type of card/occasion!

A few tips I wanted to share as I put this kit together. First off, I’m not a fan of Multi-purpose Liquid Glue. I tend to use to much and make a big mess. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen instead. Also, you do not need to add adhesive to every spot of the die-cut pieces. I did the corners on the left two cards (adding Snail to the center of the blue floral one). For the oranges/lemons card, I did the corners and then a few random dots here and there. Click here to get your kit!!

Stamp all of your greetings at once and then start your assembly. This will make it all go much faster. The last tip is to have fun with it. Feel free to use other favorite greetings of yours or different colors. Enjoy it!!!

Lovely Lasting Lily!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! We are in full swing of the Occasions Mini Catalog & Sale-A-Bration!!! Today, I’m sharing with you this lovely Lasting Lily card that I created!

Lovely Lasting Lily, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the soft look of this card and how easy it is! The greeting is perfect for thinking of you, sympathy, I’m sorry, and many other occasions!

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card base. Next, I took another piece of Soft Sea Foam measuring 5″ x 3-3/4″ and stamped the lilies from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set. This is one of the $100 level free sets you can earn through Sale-A-Bration. It has tons of greetings for both the inside and outside. The flowers and stems were all stamped in Mint Macaron Ink. Before adding this piece to the card front, I punched out a half circle on the right edge using the 3/4″ Circle Punch. This gives a little tab to secure some ribbon! I tied some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the cardstock and into a knot.

For the greeting, I used a piece of Whisper White measuring 1-1/2″ x 3″ and stamped the greeting from the Lasting Lily Stamp Set. Using the Banner Triple Punch, I punched the banner tips. The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture!

Sale-A-Bration Lily, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped another lily in the corner and greeting up top! Do you like to decorate the inside of your cards? Let me know in the comments below! I didn’t use to but I have been wanting to a lot lately. #newyearnewcardstyle Just maybe! 🙂
