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!!!

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!

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!

It Snowed!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday! 1 more week till Christmas. I thought since it snowed this is a good card to share with you all! Now I’m chanting, let it melt! 🙂

It Snowed, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is a quick card that I created with a little bit of stamping and punching. Punching out cardstock that is….I’m not a violent person. 🙂

I started with a Shaded Spruce card base. Next, I stamped the snowflakes from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Pool Party all over a piece of Whisper White. Before laying it on the card front, I added some of the Let It Snow Designer Paper (2″ x 5-1/4″) across the lower part.

Red Ribbon, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Real Red Ink. Then using the Timeless Label Punch, I punched it out and added Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. Before adding it to the card front, I placed a piece of the Real Red Ruched Ribbon down and added the greeting on top. This adds a little bit of texture to the card. Since this ribbon is so wide, tying it would make a large knot of your card so using it this way makes it nice and flat.

You can check out more samples like this by clicking here and here! Also, let me know in the comments below whether you are excited that it snowed or counting down the days till Spring??

Happy Stampin!

Silly Snowman!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! We are one week closer to Christmas and things seem to be getting crazier. Stamping is my getaway from the chaos and relaxing time of the day! What about you?? Check out this cute silly snowman card I made!

Silly Snowman, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I got this card idea from Laura Milligan and just fell in love. It’s adorable and it’s simple! Thank you, Laura!!! We, Lauras, are pretty awesome! 🙂

I started with a Whisper White card base and added a layer of Real Red (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I took a 3″ x 4″ piece of the Let It Snow Designer Paper (stripes) and added it to the upper left corner. Using the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch, I punched another sheet of the designer paper for this adorable snowman. He is already cute, glittered, and ready to go. I layered a Basic Black circle behind him to make it pop a little more.

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. Then using the Banner Triple Punch, I added banner tips to the end. I actually recommend punching first and then stamping so you don’t end up cutting off your stamped greeting. The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it off with some of the Toile Tidings Glittered Enamel Dots. It’s perfect!!!

I hope you like this little silly snowman card as much as me. While the paper is no longer available to purchase. You can create this card if you already got your hands on it over the past few months! Here are some more samples too!

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!
