Copper & Navy!!!

Posted on

Oh my goodness, Copper and Navy looks so amazing together and I love it!!! Check out this fun card I created with the Heartfelt Bundle. No red and pink and no Valentine’s Day! The Heartfelt Stamp Set isn’t just for Valentine’s Day! Try it out!

Copper & Navy, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is perfect for a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or just because. The texture and layers are amazing too!

I started with a Night of Navy card base. Next, I took a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped the greeting in the right corner. This greeting is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in the 2020 Mini Catalog! This set has a greeting for everything which I LOVE!!! Then, I took a piece of Copper Foil Paper and ran it through the Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder. This gives that perfect touch of texture. This I added to the left side of the card.

For the hearts, I used the Heartfelt Stamp Set and coordinating Heart Punches. I stamped the big one onto Very Vanilla scrap cardstock and punched it out. Then I set it on the card about where I wanted it, moved it over slightly and stamped the smaller heart from the set. I also stamped off once with the smaller heart for a fun shadow effect. Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the big heart overlapping!

For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Very Vanilla (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped some hearts in the corners with Night of Navy Ink. This is the perfect decoration to pull it all together. You can always stamp a few hearts on the envelope as well!

Monday Mail!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I have decided I want to send out more cards just because. I would like to tell others I’m thinking of them or happy for them. We all love happy mail, right?? So today, I’m sharing some Monday Mail that I sent out just because!

Monday Mail, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card I created for a special someone who recently earned a trip through her work. I’m so happy for her and the hard work she has put in. The Tropical Oasis Suite is perfect for creating this card for her. I couldn’t wait! I whipped up this card quickly so I could get it out!

Starting with a Daffodil Delight card base, I layered on Lovely Lipstick (4″ x 5-1/4″) and a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″). I love these bright colors so much! They make me so happy. For the greeting, I used the Thanks For The Laughs Stamp Set. The greetings in this set are just perfect for fun cards like this. It’s perfect!!!!

Fraying Braided Burlap, www.LaurasStampPad.com

After stamping the greeting in Lovely Lipstick Ink, I punched it out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Then I punched out another one in Lovely Lipstick cardstock. I trimmed off the top and bottom of the white greeting so it would layer perfectly. Next, I took the Braided Burlap Trim and frayed the ends a bit. Securing it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the greeting!

Today you get it in writing, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added the coordinating greeting from the Thanks for the Laughs Stamp Set! I love it!!!

Decorating these is super simple with the amazing products in the From My Heart Suite in the new mini catalog!

December 2019 Paper Pumpkin!

Posted on

This was my favorite Paper Pumpkin kit in awhile. I loved the colors and patterns. The best part of all was that the December 2019 Paper Pumpkin included 12 cards for all occasions! I was able to stock up on the ones I need the most.

December 2019 Paper Pumpkin, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t these amazing??? There are 4 of each of these cards and the adorable little envelopes too! You have florals (YIPPEEE), and masculine stripes, and polka dots. It’s like there is something for everyone! I love it. Did I mention the stamp set that came in the kit has 14 images. FOURTEEN! Paper Pumpkin is so fabulous! Click here to sign up and not miss another month of this fun!

Hey Friend, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So of course my favorite card is this floral one. You all know I love floral prints. The foil images were stickers which made this kit quick and simple. No crazy adhesive or glue needed. Just stick and go! This time of year, it was perfect to just create and get something done fast!

Birthday Cards For All Year, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I struggle with masculine cards so I had to make these all birthday ones so I could bulk up my stash for the year. Haha These will last a month, maybe 2 with my big family. 🙂 Again, quick and simple with the stickers and yet a stunning look with that foil shine!

From the Bottom of My Heart, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This one was probably the “hardest” if you want to call it that. Getting the spacing of the flowers correct so that the greeting fit in the middle was maybe a bit tricky. You can see each card has different spacing. You really have to look to see it though. This kit was just so much fun and quick!

I can’t wait to see the January kit so I can do my Valentine treats with it. Always shooting for Auntie of the year with my nieces and nephews! 🙂

Dainty Note Cards!!!

Posted on

Sometimes you need just a little card to toss in with a gift or an item you are mailing out or to sneak on the desk of a co-worker! The dainty note cards in the Best Dressed Suite are PERFECT for that!!!

Dainty Note Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These little notecards have a splash of watercolor on them so they are a perfect base card. You can go elegant, playful, masculine, or feminine! It’s perfect.

Thoughtful Blooms Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the Thoughtful Blooms Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set for all of these cards and it was super fun to mix and match the flower patterns. There is also a coordinating Sale-A-Bration Small Bloom Punch! Check out the other cards for even more fun flower patterns!

The little flowers in the background were stamped off once before stamping them on the card front. Then I stamped them a third time on the card for 2 lighter shades of Grapefruit Grove. I really love how you can get various shades from 1 ink pad.

Best Dressed Note Cards & Envelopes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Each of the card, I finished off with a few jewels. I used Glitter Enamel Dots for this one here. The Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots were used on the Grapefruit Grove card. The Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems were used on the first card! It’s so fun to mix and match!

Which one of these dainty note cards is your favorite??? Let me know in the comments below! If you would like to recreate these or make a few new designs, click on the supplies listed below! Remember that every $50 spent earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!

Birthday Sparkles!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday! Happy back to normal….or at least I’m hoping! I’m a very routine girl so I’m ready to get back at it. Although I did really enjoy the down time! I thought I would start off with some birthday sparkles today. After all who doesn’t love bling and we all celebrate birthdays!!!

Birthday Sparkles, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is actually sort of a mini card. It still fits into a regular envelope but it’s 4″ x 4-1-1/4″. I cut the cardstock at 4-1/4″ (in half) and then at 8″ to fold in half. Something a little different!!!

My card base is Bermuda Bay and I layered on a piece (3-1/4″ x 4″) of the Lily Impressions Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3″ x 3-3/4″) and stamped the cake in Melon Mambo Ink. The cake is from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Right after stamping, I took the Wink of Stella Pen and colored over the flowers. This makes the ink bleed just a bit while adding the perfect amount of sparkle!

Coloring with Wink of Stella, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the perfect hint of pink and shimmer! After coloring this, I layered it onto the card front and added a few Champagne Rhinestones. You can also use some of the Peacock Rhinestones for different color options! I love them all!

Glittered Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the same set in the center and then did the top corner of the cake stamp in the bottom right corner. This gives the perfect flower coordination to the inside of the card. Of course, I colored it with some Wink of Stella too!
