How To Adhere Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing something that I have been asked about a lot so I finally did a video tutorial on it!!! Check out how to adhere Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper to your project!!!

How To Adhere Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

All you need is a sponge, silicone mat, and Multi-Purpose Glue to adhere it to your project. Since the Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper is so delicate and small, most other glues are hard to use and you end up with a sticky mess. Simply add a dot of the glue to the silicone mat and dab it with the sponge. Then lightly dab all over your designer paper and stick it on your project. Press over the top for a few seconds to allow the glue to adhere to the cardstock and you are all set! No mess with glue all over or accidentally using to much! Check out the Video Tutorial below to see this in action and how little glue you really need!

If you prefer, the Fine Tip Glue Pen would work as well but the chance of using too much is higher with that glue I think.

Poppy Parade Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is a quick and simple card I created using this technique and that perfect little detailed design along the side.

I started with a Poppy Parade card base. Next, I added the little strip of Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper along the left hand side. I was able to get 2 of these cards with each of the border pieces so that’s awesome! Then, I stamped the flowers and greeting from the Love What You Do Stamp Set in Black Ink. I added the pop of color with the flower dots in Poppy Parade Ink. For more contrast, I layered this piece onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and popped it onto my card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off the card with a few Rhinestones for some bling!! This card could be created in any color you wish. I love card concepts like that!

Polka Dots & Stripes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For this card, the stripes make the card so cheerful. Sending this out to a friend is sure to brighten their day!! The card above uses the 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Designer Paper. I added some Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon and the greeting from the Accented Blooms Stamp Set. The greeting was punched out with the coordinating Tailored Tag Punch.

Decorate the Inside, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So I wasn’t wasting any pieces, I placed the little 4″ x 3/4″ piece on the inside as a little decoration. I feel like it really pulls the card together!

Dots of Thanks, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The other piece was used on this simple card! This piece measures 5-1/2″ x 2″ and I simply stamped the greeting directly to the card base! You could always stamp this on Whisper White and punch it out to give the card a little more texture!

6x6 One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Blooms with Happiness!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!! Woot woot for the middle of the week already!!! I hope your day blooms with happiness each and every day!!! This card surely would help, wouldn’t it??

Blooms with Happiness, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Yesterday, I talked about the amazing tip using the Tufted Embossing Folder and here is the card I was using it on! I just love that textured background. It’s subtle but also adds so much to the card!

I started with a Balmy Blue card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and ran it through the Big Shot in the Tufted Embossing Folder. Then I added this to the card front. For the focal point, I cut a piece of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper into a 3″ square. That means you can get 16 of these from one sheet of paper! The Whisper White piece measures 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″.

Tulips In a Vase, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now here comes the tricky part….but don’t worry I did the leg work for you. After four tries, I nailed it! 🙂 First, I stamped the greeting from the Varied Vases Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry. Then, I punched out the vase using the coordinating Vases Builder Punch with some scrap paper. This will be your guide for stamping the stems. Place the scrap vase on the white square above the greeting but not so high that you don’t have room for your flowers. Next, I stamped the stem and leaf in Old Olive Ink.

TIP: Since the stems and leaf are so long/big, you might need to place a scrap piece of paper down to mask the vase so that you don’t have a stem popping out the side of your vase. To achieve this, I placed a larger scrap piece over the scrap punched vase and made marks on the paper on either side of the vase lip. This helped me know that I needed to stamp the stems inside that area so that it would fall inside the vase.

Vase Masking Tutorial, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Once the stems and leaf were stamped, the rest is easy. Simply stamp the vase in Balmy Blue onto scrap Whisper White and punch it out. The tulips were stamped in Grapefruit Grove and punched out. I stamped the outline in full strength and the inside image stamped off once for a lighter shade. Using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added these to my project. I off set the two squares for a fun little look and finished off the card with a few Share What You Love Pearls.

Technique Tuesday – Simple One Sheet Wonder!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday, everyone!!! Technique Tuesday is back this week! Woot Woot! Today’s I’m showing your this Simple One Sheet Wonder with a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper!!!

Simple One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started out making this simple, yet fun card using the 2018-2019 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack. I love the monochromatic look and it makes for easy stamping with just one ink pad. The card base is Whisper White measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Then I layered on a piece of the Designer Paper measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Next, I tied some Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon around the card and into a knot. Using the Accented Blooms Stamp Set and coordinating Tailored Tag Punch, I created the greeting. I popped the greeting up with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. This is a quick and simple card.

In Color One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I realized  I had a leftover piece measuring 2″ x 6″ so I created this little card. Again, I used a Whisper White card base. Then I cut the Designer Paper down to 2″ x 5-1/2″ and added it to the top. I tied the ribbon around and stamped the greeting directly to the card front. My husband said I should have popped up this greeting as well. It would make it pop more and give the card some texture. I finished the card off by adding a few rhinestones.

Love You Always, www.LaurasStampPad.com

There are 2 little pieces leftover. One measures 3/4″ x 4″ and that strip I added to the inside of the card for a little decoration. The other one I tossed since it was just 2″ x 1/2″. That is the only bit of this paper that wasn’t used though which is pretty awesome!

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin!!!

Posted on

The June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit was super fun and easy even though it took me like 3 days to put it together between baby snuggles, feedings, and napping! 🙂 It seems everything takes longer to do now that Baby Claire is here! It was still great to enjoy some crafting time where I didn’t have to think of the idea or haul out a mess of products.

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I always need Birthday Cards and I love these colors together as well! The cake with the strawberries on it is super cute!!!

Broadway Star, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The first set of 4 cards have these fun greetings with cakes as the decoration. The one thing that I found odd was that the black and white layer that the greeting is on is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then the Hooray sticker goes on top and it hangs off. This is kind of odd because then the sticky is floating out there or dropping down and sticking. I think I would have put it all flat and just popped up the cake if I hadn’t put the dimensionals on first. Also, this photo doesn’t show it but each of the dots around the greeting gets a pearl on it and wowza does that make it POP! I love it!!! There were extra cakes and candles so I added those to the envelopes and insides of the cards!

You Did It, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For this one, the banner with the stars was stamped. I tried to do this is a nice pattern but that was hard. For the most part I stamped down the banner and then did the next row. This was a bit all over but after assembling the cards, you can’t really see the pattern or any mistakes so it’s all good. I had leftover balloons so I added them to the envelopes! The little gold sequins all around make for a fun pop of bling that I like!

Which one is your favorite?? Let me know in the comments below!

Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Paper!!!

Posted on

Who loves Black and White with a POP of color??? I sure do and the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Paper is amazing! It has that black and white and the color pops are PINK….Eeeeee…..and Green and Gold! Bling Bling!

Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Look how pretty it is!!! One side of each of the sheets has gold foil on it! This makes it hard to decide which side to use for sure! Thank goodness there are 2 sheets of every pattern so then I can use 1 sheet for one side and the other sheet for the other side! These patterns are great for Birthdays and Anniversaries. I think the black and gold would be perfect for like a 25th or 50th wedding anniversary. The numbers would be perfect for a little one’s birthday. The gold, black, and silver dots would be perfect for Graduation or New Years. There are just endless possibilities!

Delightfully Detailed Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

 

Look at these fine details….that you don’t have to cut out or pop out the pieces in between yourself. It’s all done for you and the detail is amazing. There are 8 sheets in the pack – 4 each of the 2 designs shown above. The one on the left is a full 12″ x 12″ sheet of that floral detail. This is fun to cut into pieces or use as a full sheet for a background or scrapbook page. The sheet on the right has borders as well as pieces that can be cut for card fronts. Although you could always cut them into pieces for even more projects too! Another fabulous feature about this designer paper is that one side is vanilla and the other is white. I love that versatility built right in. Of course, you can always color the paper with a Sponge Dauber, Sponge Brayer, Spritz, etc. There are lots of possibilities with this stuff. Click the photo below to get some so you can start adding fine beautiful details to your projects!

Spoiling the Doctors & Nurses!!!

Posted on

Happy Friday everyone!!! Today, I just wanted to share a little on how we have enjoyed spoiling the Doctors & Nurses at our Baby Ziggy appointments. It’s something that is so small and simple to me but yet I think it makes a great impact on them. We LOVE everyone in the office and really appreciate their kindness and thoughtfulness through this entire pregnancy. We actually enjoy going to each appointment because we get to see our friends! I will miss them once Ziggy arrives for sure! 🙂

Spoiling the Doctors & Nurses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

 

Here are 2 of the goodies that we took. I fell in love with Jelly Beans over Easter and thought I would share some! I simply took a cellophane bag and added some Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to the back with a little stamped greeting. The greeting says You Make Me So Happy but I crossed out me and wrote in Us! The top was tied off with some Lemon Lime Twist Striped Ribbon! This was easy and simple!

The April Paper Pumpkin Kit (check it out here) had those fabulous greetings with You Are a Lifesaver. I took some Lifesaver Mints and added them to a Clear Envelope. Then I just used some leftover twine from the kit to tie around it and add the card. This was a great way to use up those little cards since they were too small to mail and they fit the occasion perfectly!

Apparently I didn’t take pictures of most of the treats we took in. I used the January Paper Pumpkin Kit for our Valentine’s/February appointment. Paper Pumpkin really helped me out with lots of these! I just love how it sets you up for upcoming holidays with time to spare. Rather than thinking what will I do for the occasion that is tomorrow…….the kit comes a month early for that occasion! Click here to try out Paper Pumpkin and see how fabulous it is!

Cinnamon Rolls, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Most of our appointments were in the afternoon but then we got an 8:45 a.m. appointment on Ziggy’s Due Date! Early appointments means breakfast!!!! We took in cinnamon rolls. No, I didn’t make them at home but these cinnamon rolls do hold a special place in my heart. Side story: Every Sunday growing up we would go to church as a family and then go to my Grandparents house afterwards for “breakfast.” This consisted of milk and a sweet (cake, cinnamon roll, etc) for the kids and coffee and a sweet for the adults. We got to play with our cousins and have a good time! My Grandma would make the sweet item about 98% of the time but every once in a while she would buy these cinnamon rolls. I saw them in the store the other day and just had to get some. They were amazing and brought back so many memories. I love and miss you, Grandma!

I hope that this post helped give you some ideas on simple ways you can use your stamping/crafty side to share the love with those around you. We all know the power of a card and how much it can lift someone’s spirits. Little gifts like this can do the same but reach a larger audience – co-workers, nurses, doctors, firemen, teachers, police, postal workers, and so many others. Don’t just stash away your cards and projects, share them with those around you!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday! Happy Stampin’
