Look how fabulous that is!!! I simply took the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker and brushed over the Rhinestones. Now you have gold rhinestones! It’s perfect!!! Here is a card that I used both silver and gold for!

Golden Merry Christmas, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Whisper White card base and layered on a piece of Blackberry Bliss that I ran through the Big Shot with the Tufted Embossing Folder. This gives a little texture to the background. Next, I stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set on a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock. I stamped three times before going back to the ink for a variation in color. Also, I stamped up, down, up, down for a forest look. Then I added this piece to the card front.

Silver Merry Christmas, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Using some Gold Glimmer Paper and Silver Glimmer Paper, I added a little strip down the bottom of the Shaded Spruce. This is a great way to use up scrap pieces. It just needs to be long enough to stick out the ends of the greeting. The greeting was stamped in Blackberry Bliss from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set. To finish off the card, I added some Rhinestones to the silver one and some gold Rhinestones to the gold one. I love it!!!

Here I stamped the inside of the card with the New Year greeting and a little mini forest! Super cute! Do you prefer Gold or Silver?? Let me know in the comments below! If you would like to recreate this card, click on the supply list below!

Froofy Shmoofer Card!!!

Posted on

My husband names this card the Froofy Shmoofer card!!! I say that works, right?? Either way it’s a great card for any occasion, even Christmas!

Froofy Shmoofer, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the greenery piece from the First Frost Stamp Set. It is stamped in Tranquil Tide Ink. I started on the side and stamped it up high, flipped it over and stamped it towards the bottom and over and over. This creates a more random pattern. Then I added a little strip of the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper across the center.

Detailed Greeting, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Using just a little bit of adhesive in the center of the designer paper, I then added a little bit of the Tranquil Tide Mini Ruffled. Don’t worry if it doesn’t seem secure because the greeting will also help hold it in place. For the greeting, I stamped it from the First Frost Stamp Set in Tranquil Tide Ink. Then I took another greenery piece form the set and stamped it over the top in Soft Sea Foam Ink. Then, I punched a few Soft Sea Foam sprigs with the Sprig Punch. I added these on opposing corners. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This card would be a perfect for a winter wedding, Christmas, or even a just because. What occasion would you use this card for?? Let me know in the comments below!

Festive Farmhouse Fun!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend! We got to spend lots of time with both sides of the family. It was amazing and Claire enjoyed all the attention. Wish me luck today as I am her only entertainment. 🙂 Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to prepare for the next holiday!!! I created this cute and simple Festive Farmhouse fun card for just the occasion!

Festive Farmhouse Fun, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I’m all about quick and simple cards this year because I just don’t seem to have much time lately now with little Miss Claire in our lives! 🙂 This card also uses every bit of the 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Paper because it is a 4″ x 3″ piece! Bonus!

I started with a Cherry Cobbler card base. Next, I took a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (4″ x 3″) and layered it onto a piece of Crumb Cake (4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″). Then I added this piece to the card front. I took a piece of the Striped Burlap Trim and cut the ends to a point, making the points opposite for each end. Just add a little bit of Snail Adhesive to the designer paper and press the ribbon into it. It won’t be held super strong at this point but that’s okay. Adding the greeting over the top will hold it much better.

For the greeting, I used the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set. The kit is amazing but the coordinating stamp set is SUPER versatile. Check out these samples using it here and here! The greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink and punched out with the 2″ Circle Punch. Then I layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle. The scallop was die cut with the Layering Circle Framelits. The framelits create smooth and scalloped circles but I used my punch for the smooth one to go faster! If you only have the framelits, it would work perfectly! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little texture and to go smooth over the ribbon!

Do you like quick and simple cards for Christmas or more intricate, detailed ones? Let me know in the comments below! I’m off to work on my cards today! I have a lot to create since my family is huge and all of my customers get one! 🙂

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Posted on

Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday and I’m super excited to celebrate it this year!!! I love that it is a simple holiday focused on food and family and celebrating our blessings. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving too!!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, www.LaurasStampPad.com

There is so much to be thankful today and every day! From the big things to the little things that we have, they are all very special and wonderful! This year, I thought I would share a few new things I’m thankful for.

~I’m super thankful for my amazing Doctor and all the nurses and staff throughout my pregnancy, 33 hours of labor, and C-section delivery.

~Of course, Brad and I are thankful to have a beautiful, healthy baby girl! She is our whole world and we love her more and more with each day!

~Even more this year, I am thankful for Stampin’ Up and this amazing opportunity. Being able to work from home and on my own schedule has been amazing over the past year. Having the ability to share with I love and love what I do is something I’m forever grateful for!

~I’m thankful for Stampin’ Up having their 30th Birthday Party in Orlando, Florida. I’m sure we would have not gone to Florida or Epcot with a 5 month old if it weren’t for Stampin’ Up luring us there! 🙂 Thank you for the amazing opportunity and chance to get out of the house and out of town!

~As always, I’m so thankful for all of you. My followers, my customers, and those who watch my videos…you all are so amazing and mean the world to me! Thank You!!!

I hope you have an amazing day today and stay safe if you are traveling! Check back tomorrow for Stampin’ Up’s Online Extravaganza!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

May Your Christmas Be Bright!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!! I know tomorrow is Thanksgiving and here I am sharing a Christmas card. I have so many to share and Thanksgiving cards are probably already complete and ready to go so…..May Your Christmas Be Bright!!!!

May Your Christmas Be Bright, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I got the idea for this card from our team event back in August – Vacation Stamping School. The sample was a smaller card and just a little gold glimmer banner. I changed it up and made it a full size card!!

First, I started with a Real Red card base. Next, I cut a piece of the All Is Bright Designer Paper into a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece. Using the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set, I stamped the lightbulbs and stars all over the background. Be sure to fall off the edges so that it looks like the pattern continues. I used Real Red Ink for the bulbs and shine. The end of the bulb was stamped in Call Me Clover Ink and the stars in Crushed Curry Ink. Then I added this to the card front!

Punched Greeting, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now for the greeting, I added a strip of Gold Glimmer Paper across the card front. Then I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the “Bright” in Real Red Ink. Next, I stamped the “May Your Christmas Be” in Call Me Clover Ink just above it. For the final step, I stamped the wreath around the greeting in Crushed Curry Ink. All of these  are from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set. It really helps that these stamps are photopolymer so you can line them up better. Using the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch, I punched out the greeting and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!!!

October 2018 Paper Pumpkin!!!

Posted on

I got behind and just finished my October 2018 Paper Pumpkin last week! This kit was super easy and there was SOOOOO much goodie. I even made 5 extra cards and still have more. That is just one of the awesome things about Paper Pumpkin; how much stuff comes in 1 kit! Sign up for the December Kit here!!!

October 2018 Paper Pumpkin, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t these cards beautiful?? I love those little feathers!! The colors are stunning together too. I don’t know that I would have added  in that pop of blue and purple but it looks amazing!!! The kit made these 8 cards and the purple (top) cards actually have that delicate overlay and then it flips open! Super cool!

Orange Feather Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The envelopes for these cards are super cute too. The inside has a patterned liner that matches the greeting tag and then there is the little label on the front! I’ll be honest and say that I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen for the feathers rather than adding the Mini Glue Dots provided in the kit. I thought it went a little faster…maybe?

Purple Feather Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Again, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen for adding those leaves to the Cajun Craze label. Another handy dandy tool I used was the Take Your Pick Tool! It made popping those sequins on super easy. I’m loving that tool more and more each time I use it!!

Paper Pumpkin Alternatives, www.LaurasStampPad.com

There were TONS of feathers left over so I created these 2 cards using the same concept as the ones above. All I did was create Crumb Cake card bases. Simple and super cute!

Paper Pumpkin Extras, www.LaurasStampPad.comI thought I would mix it up a bit so I created these with Whisper White card bases and a layer of Night of Navy. This way I didn’t have to add  a white piece in the middle of a Night of Navy base since it’s hard to see your writing in there. I used up all of the ribbon but still have the twine left. That makes 5 cards created from the extras but wait there’s more…..

Paper Pumpkin Leftover Feathers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I still have all of these feathers and labels left over. There are at least 5 more cards to be made there. That’s a lot of goodie in one box which makes it so worth the $20 price.
