Steal the Show, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base. Next, I layered on a piece of the Christmastime is Here Designer Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) onto Soft Sea Foam (4″ x 5-1/4″). Then added those layers to the card front.

For the greeting, I die cut the label using the coordinating Roses Dies and stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler Ink. The greeting is from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set. I felt the greeting didn’t pop enough so I layered this onto some Cherry Cobbler cardstock and cut out a little layered look. Since the lines are straight, this wasn’t that hard. To finish it off, I added a little piece of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon to the back, securing it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Christmas Pines, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I used images from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set to stamp along the top and bottom. This greenery look is perfect for Christmas time! It was stamped in Mossy Meadow and the greeting in Cherry Cobbler! You could always add some of the greenery to the envelope as well! 🙂 Such a fabulous card that is super quick since you are letting the designer paper do all of the work and steal the show!

Wishing You Well!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you had an amazing weekend! I sure did! Lots of family time and a little bit of relaxing time….that’s my kind of weekend! 🙂 What about you??? Let me know your perfect weekend plans in the comments below!!! Then we can get to this Wishing You Well Fall Card!

wishing you well, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is quick and simple to create. You can get 9 of these from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ designer paper! Add a different greeting for the occasion and it’s perfect all Fall long!

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Next, I took a piece of Very Vanilla (4″ x 5-1/4″) and layered on some of the Come To Gather Designer Paper (4″ x 4″). On the lower portion, I stamped the greeting from the Gather Together Stamp Set. The greeting was stamped in Cajun Craze Ink. Then I took some of the Come To Gather Satin Ribbon and tied it around when the designer paper ended. This gives a smoother transition from designer paper to solid cardstock. Add this to the card front and you are all set!

I will admit that this satin ribbon is rather wide and therefore makes a thick knot. Normally I’m not a fan of such a chunky embellishment and press on it a little to soft/flatten it and you are golden! You could always use twine in the Come to Gather Ribbon Pack or just place a strip of the satin ribbon across and not tie it. It’s all up to you!!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Fall! I’m wishing you well! 🙂 Check out more samples using these products here and here!

warmth & love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I’m so in love with the Christmastime is Here Suite. All of the amazing products are used in this card. The Stamps, coordinating Framelits, Gold Ribbon, Designer Paper, and Gold Enamel Embellishments are all part of it!

Here I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Then I layered on a piece of the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper (4″ x 4″). This means that you can get 9 cards from 1 sheet of the paper. Next, I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler at the top from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set and tied some of the ribbon around the card front.

Red Roses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the roses, I stamped them in Basic Gray and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and Old Olive were the colors I used! After die cutting it out, I added it to the card front and just trimmed off the part hanging over. To finish it off, I added some of the Gold Glittered Enamel Embellishments! STUNNING!!!

Christmas Roses!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Today’s technique is a bit tricky…..stamping or coloring! Can you guess which one I did on these Christmas Roses?? Which one do you prefer??

Christmas Roses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am just loving the Christmas Roses Stamp Set that just came out this month! The image is stunning and so fun to color! The card above is actually colored rather than stamped with all of the coordinating images. While stamping was easy to do as the images are photopolymer, I found coloring to be more fun!

This card was created super quickly as I just stamped in the image in Basic Gray and then colored it with Stampin’ Blends. Next, I die cut it with the coordinating Roses Dies. After that, I added it to the card. The card base is Mossy Meadow with a piece of the Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper!!! While the Suite has a lot of gold in it, I decided to branch out and use some silver for the card.

Let’s Do This Together!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! Happy November!!! Don’t panic the holidays are still “around the corner”…..at least that’s what I keep saying to myself to so I don’t panic. Everything is better when you have a friend with you!!! So let’s do this together and we will be golden!!! We got this!

Let's Do This Together, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Is this not the best greeting ever???? I love it! It’s so true and perfect! This card is perfect for the just because, the friend who is going through a rough time (cough cough being a mom) 🙂 , or just any day these next couple of months as we tackle the holidays! I think I am going to give it to a friend of mine who just had a baby! Going through that with a friend who can cheer you on the days you think you can’t take another poopy diaper or celebrate with you that they finally slept for X amount of hours. That makes life so much better! Am I right?!?!

This card was super simple because I used the Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack and Envelope Pack. You may look at these and think they are for scrapbooking only but no no no. I, too, thought that same way so I would get a pack here and there and save it for my scrapbooking. Now I use them for card making and it is magical. Quick and simple beautiful cards. Some of the cards have greetings on them and they are fabulous. Others have an open area that you can stamp a greeting into! They are perfect! The one above uses the stamp from Good Morning Magnolia!

You are Loved, www.LaurasStampPad.com

You will notice that the one up top is a larger card that covers up the silver foil frame. This card here uses a smaller card and it shows off that fabulous foil! Oh so beautiful and simple! I love it! Check out the supplies listed below so you can create quick and simple cards to have on hand! For more fun samples using the Magnolia Suite, click here!

Apple of My Eye!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!! This card is perfect for teachers, get well, and so much more. After all, you could send it to anyone as the apple of my eye!!!

Apple of My Eye, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This super cute card had fun fold to it as well. The green center piece with the apple opens up and then a little red flap opens down! There are little greetings with each flap too! Thank you to Deb Snyder for the inspiration for this fabulous card!

I started with a piece of Real Red measuring 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ and I scored it at 5-1/2″. This creates the little flap on the bottom that folds up. Next, I took a piece of Mint Macaron measuring 9″ x 3-1/4″ and folded it in half at 4-1/2″. The front flap of this piece was then embossed with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. Then I added this to the inside of the red card base. I find that Tear & Tape is best because it has a nice strong hold for a flap that is going to be pulled on a lot.

A+ Teacher, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I create the fun half apple and greeting using the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch! For the greeting, I used the Timeless Label Punch! The apple was colored with Real Red Stampin’ Blends and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. Be sure that this piece is positioned underneath the Mint Macaron flap.

For the front of the card, I created the apple by adding some of the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper to a strip of Real Red cardstock. Then I stamped the apple over the top of this and punched it out. That is how you get the perfect half and half apple. The stem was done in Soft Suede and the leaf in Mint Macaron. Then to seal the overlap of paper on the apple, I added a mini strip of Mint Macaron Ribbon. The mini bow was then created with the Fork Bow Technique! This was all added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! So fun and fabulous!!!

Technique Tuesday – Double Fold!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! It’s been a month since we closed on the house and I think FINALLY I’m starting to get back into a routine/groove. Maybe?!?!?! Either way, I have a fabulous double fold technique to share with you today that is super cute!!!

Double Fold, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card uses the Come to Gather Suite from the Holiday Mini Catalog. I am super loving the blues and greens this season. It’s a nice change from the typical reds, oranges, and yellows.

Come To Gather, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Since I did a full video tutorial on this double fold card, I’ll post a link to that below rather than typing out the full directions!

I’m Still Here!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I’m still here…..omg moving with a 1 year old is not easy. She is getting into everything, wandering all over and we are trying not to trip over her. She also has been a bit confused and clingy since we have been all over the place. Some days I have been packing and unpacking cars/boxes/houses with a 24 pound child strapped to my back. Needless to say I’m exhausted! So I thought I would chill on the couch with all of you while she naps! 🙂 I miss you all!

I'm still here, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is a fun and simple Fall card for any occasion this time of year! You could easily change the greeting to Happy Birthday or Thinking of You! The inspiration for this card came from Karla Endris. I feel in love with it the moment I saw it!

I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I took 2 pieces of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. One is for the front and the other is for the inside. First I stamped the greeting on the front piece from the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set. Next, I embossed it in the Subtle Embossing Folder. It is easier to stamp first on a smooth surface to get a cleaner look. The embossing gives a little bit of texture to the card. Then I added a piece of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper to the left hand side and added it to the card front.

The pumpkins were stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the Apple Builder Punch. This coordinates perfectly with the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and you can Bundle & Save 10%! The pumpkins are Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Pumpkin Pie! The stem was done in Soft Suede & the leaf in Old Olive. I added a little twine from the Come to Gather Ribbon Pack. To finish off the card, I added a few Rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Pack. Another option is to use the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Marker and color your regular rhinestones. This works perfectly when you are making a lot and you run out! 🙂

Season of Thanks!!!

Posted on

Tis the Season! The Season of Thanks! I am LOVING these blues and greens together and feel like I’ve fallen in love! Stampin’ Up really nailed it with the Come to Gather Suite!!! What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!

Season of Thanks, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am so in love with this card. It is elegant, Fall, and full of love! That’s perfect in my opinion!

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card base. Next, I took a piece of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and layered it onto the front. Then I added a dab of adhesive in the center and pressed the strip of ribbon into it. This ribbon is from the Come to Gather Ribbon Pack. It is always best to add the adhesive to the cardstock than to the ribbon, it just sticks better that way!

Gather Together Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink. Be sure to stamp it on the far right side so there is room for the leaves and pumpkin on the left. This was stamped on a Very Vanilla Stitched Label! Those things are so beautiful and I love using them for all different styles of cards. On the left hand side, I adhered 2 textured leaves that were die cut from the coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. Then I stamped the pumpkins in Soft Sea Foam and die cut those out as well. I added this entire piece to the card front over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a few Basic Sequins for some bling!

Come to Gather Suite, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added some pumpkins and another greeting from the Gather Together stamp set! It’s just perfect!!!
