You’re a Classic!!!

Posted on

Father’s Day is around the corner and this card would be perfect!!! It also makes a great birthday card too!!!

You're a Classic, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is a fun and simple card that could be done in various color combinations! I did use one of the retiring color – Lemon Lime Twist!!

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) and adhered it down the center. Using a piece of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, I sponged Blueberry Bushel Ink onto the back for some color. Be sure to allow it to dry a bit or you can use the Heat Tool to set the ink. Once it was ready, I adhered it to the left side!

For the focal point, I stamped the car and greeting onto a Whisper White rectangle measuring 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. These were stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink. They are from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set!! Next, I layered them onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist measuring 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″. This layer was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture!!!

Click the supplies listed below to make this You’re A Classic card!!! Some of these items are retiring so get them before they are gone! What color combinations would you use?

To The Women Who Does It All!!!

Posted on

This is the card I gave to my Mom for Mother’s Day!!! The greeting is perfect!! As women we tend to do it all, multi-tasking at it’s finest!!! This beautiful card is the perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge that.

To The Women Who Does It All, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This beautiful card uses the retiring Floral Romance Designer Series Paper. This card is also one of the cards in my latest Laura’s Quick Kits!!! You can put any greeting on this card for any occasion!

I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow as the card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) and adhered it to the front. This is just a hair smaller than the Floral Romance Vellum which is 4″ x 5-1/4″. I did this so that it wouldn’t match up perfectly but instead have that gradual fade on the edges. You can also put the adhesive on the vellum anywhere because it doesn’t show through. This was a game changer for me! In the past when I used vellum, it was a pain to try to hide the adhesive behind your focal point or something. Not with this paper!!!

For the decoration, I punched out a 2″ Circle in Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot in the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. I love this little big of texture behind those flowers. The flowers were punched out using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack. When assembling, I placed the circle down first and then the greeting. This was stamped from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set and punched out with the Triple Banner Punch! Next, I gathered the little flowers over that straight edge of the greeting. The pink flowers are on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaves are from the Leaf Punch!

Laura's Quick Kits, www.LaurasStampPad.com

On the inside, I added a layer of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the greeting from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set. Then I added a few more punched flowers on the corners! It is just so beautiful and was the perfect card for my Mom!!!

Loving this look?? Check out my Laura’s Quick Kits and you can make 2 of these as well as 4 others. All of the supplies are included, you just need to stamp a greeting and assemble!

Make It A Sweet Celebration!!

Posted on

Happy Friday!!! With Graduations, Bridal Showers, and Claire’s Birthday coming up…..Make It A Sweet Celebration!!!! I just thought this card captured it all! It’s quick, simple, and fabulous!!! After all, every day should be a sweet celebration!

Make It A Sweet Celebration, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is super simple and a create way to use up designer paper and ribbon!!!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I stamped the greeting from Sweetest Thing Stamp Set at the bottom in Gorgeous Grape. I also stamped some gummy bears on the inside of the card too!!! Next, I took a piece of Coastal Cabana and ripped one edge. Then I adhered the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (2″ x 5-1/2″) closer to the cut edge. I added this to the card front and then tied the Granny Apple Green/Coastal Cabana Reversible Ribbon around the card. I like to do that so it is more secure around the card and not just around the layer. That is all you need to do!

Simple and fabulous, right?? Check out the supplies below as some are retiring on June 3rd so get them before they are gone!!!

Technique Tuesday – Pop Out Insert!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know what that means! I have a fabulous technique today that I got from the amazing stamper Ronda Wade!!! This Pop Out Insert really takes a card up a notch. I went simple on the front since the inside is so fabulous!!!

Sending Happiness & Love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the Needlepoint Nook Suite from the Occasions Mini Catalog for this card and it is just fabulous! The images look so real and that just blows my mind!!

I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I layered on a piece of Poppy Parade (3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″) with some Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper on top (3″ x 4″). For the greeting, I die cut out the label from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits. Using the greeting from the Needle & Thread (Bundle & Save 10%), I stamped it in Poppy Parade Ink. Before attaching it to the card front, I added a few loops of Old Olive Linen Thread.

Now for the real fabulous part!!! The inside of the card has this beautiful pop out insert. This is something that can be inside any of your cards. Simply score, fold, and decorate!!! I started with a piece of Whisper White measuring 5-1/4″ x 8″ and folded it in half at 4″. Then with a pencil, I marked 1-1/2″ on either side of that center score line. Measuring 2-1/2″ down the center score line, I made another mark with my pencil. Then using the score blade on the Stampin’ Trimmer or a ruler and Bone Folder, score from the 2-1/2″ mark to the 1-1/2″ mark. This creates a little triangle. Next, I folded on all of the lines to create that pop out.

Be sure to decorate before adding it to the card. I stamped a few leaves first. Next, I stamped and die cut the flowers from the Needle & Thread Bundle. These images can hang off the top of the cardstock because they are folding down when the card closes so they won’t hang out the top.

When adding the insert to the card, I used Tear And Tape because it is super strong. Once the tape it on, place it inside the card, open the card flap, peal off the tape backing and then press the card closed. This ensures that the insert will still allow the card to close flat. Next, flip over the card and repeat. Again be sure to press the card closed to seal the adhesive for that perfect look. When you open the card it might not go all the way to the fold or seem a little off on the sides but that is okay. The important part is that it closes flat.

Crisscross Applesauce!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! Today, I’m sharing a fabulous card and when I look at it, all I can think is crisscross applesauce. Who doesn’t say crisscross without applesauce following??? Unless maybe you were a big fan of the band!! Let me know in the comments if you were!

Crisscross Applesauce, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is a simple card and a great way to use up designer series paper. Adding the stitched look to the rectangles and fun linen thread just makes it that much more special!!!

I started with a Fresh Fig card base and stamped the little flower all over in Fresh Fig Ink. The flower is from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set. Next, I took 2 pieces of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and die cut them with the Stitched Rectangle Framelits! Then, I stamped the greeting on the wooden one in Fresh Fig Ink. This greeting is from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set.

On the smaller rectangle, I wrapped Linen Tread down the rectangle and back again creating that fun crisscross pattern. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back side to hold it all in place and for adhering to the card. This gives a little texture too. I finished it off with a little Frosted Flower Embellishment!

Strong & Beautiful, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I rounded 2 corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. Using that same flower from the front, I stamped a few in Petal Pink and the coordinating greeting in Fresh Fig!!! I love the little decorated inside that just makes the card look so fabulous! After all, you can’t write on Fresh Fig cardstock anyway so why not add in some more fun!

Check out the supplies listed below so you can recreate this card! Many of these items are retiring so get them before they are gone!
