Blue and yellow are just so pretty together and this paper has so many shades of both. It is amazing!!! The shades of green on the sheet with leaves all over is going to make a perfect background for any card with flowers on it. You all know I love flowers!!! 🙂 The New In-Color Terracotta Tile color (burnt orange) is used in this paper as well!!

To The Women Who Does It All!!!

Posted on

This is the card I gave to my Mom for Mother’s Day!!! The greeting is perfect!! As women we tend to do it all, multi-tasking at it’s finest!!! This beautiful card is the perfect way to celebrate and acknowledge that.

To The Women Who Does It All, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This beautiful card uses the retiring Floral Romance Designer Series Paper. This card is also one of the cards in my latest Laura’s Quick Kits!!! You can put any greeting on this card for any occasion!

I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow as the card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) and adhered it to the front. This is just a hair smaller than the Floral Romance Vellum which is 4″ x 5-1/4″. I did this so that it wouldn’t match up perfectly but instead have that gradual fade on the edges. You can also put the adhesive on the vellum anywhere because it doesn’t show through. This was a game changer for me! In the past when I used vellum, it was a pain to try to hide the adhesive behind your focal point or something. Not with this paper!!!

For the decoration, I punched out a 2″ Circle in Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot in the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. I love this little big of texture behind those flowers. The flowers were punched out using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack. When assembling, I placed the circle down first and then the greeting. This was stamped from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set and punched out with the Triple Banner Punch! Next, I gathered the little flowers over that straight edge of the greeting. The pink flowers are on Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaves are from the Leaf Punch!

On the inside, I added a layer of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the greeting from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set. Then I added a few more punched flowers on the corners! It is just so beautiful and was the perfect card for my Mom!!!

Loving this look?? Check out my Laura’s Quick Kits and you can make 2 of these as well as 4 others. All of the supplies are included, you just need to stamp a greeting and assemble!

Make It A Sweet Celebration!!

Posted on

Happy Friday!!! With Graduations, Bridal Showers, and Claire’s Birthday coming up…..Make It A Sweet Celebration!!!! I just thought this card captured it all! It’s quick, simple, and fabulous!!! After all, every day should be a sweet celebration!

Make It A Sweet Celebration, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is super simple and a create way to use up designer paper and ribbon!!!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I stamped the greeting from Sweetest Thing Stamp Set at the bottom in Gorgeous Grape. I also stamped some gummy bears on the inside of the card too!!! Next, I took a piece of Coastal Cabana and ripped one edge. Then I adhered the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (2″ x 5-1/2″) closer to the cut edge. I added this to the card front and then tied the Granny Apple Green/Coastal Cabana Reversible Ribbon around the card. I like to do that so it is more secure around the card and not just around the layer. That is all you need to do!

Simple and fabulous, right?? Check out the supplies below as some are retiring on June 3rd so get them before they are gone!!!

Crisscross Applesauce!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! Today, I’m sharing a fabulous card and when I look at it, all I can think is crisscross applesauce. Who doesn’t say crisscross without applesauce following??? Unless maybe you were a big fan of the band!! Let me know in the comments if you were!

Crisscross Applesauce, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is a simple card and a great way to use up designer series paper. Adding the stitched look to the rectangles and fun linen thread just makes it that much more special!!!

I started with a Fresh Fig card base and stamped the little flower all over in Fresh Fig Ink. The flower is from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set. Next, I took 2 pieces of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and die cut them with the Stitched Rectangle Framelits! Then, I stamped the greeting on the wooden one in Fresh Fig Ink. This greeting is from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set.

On the smaller rectangle, I wrapped Linen Tread down the rectangle and back again creating that fun crisscross pattern. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back side to hold it all in place and for adhering to the card. This gives a little texture too. I finished it off with a little Frosted Flower Embellishment!

Strong & Beautiful, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I rounded 2 corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. Using that same flower from the front, I stamped a few in Petal Pink and the coordinating greeting in Fresh Fig!!! I love the little decorated inside that just makes the card look so fabulous! After all, you can’t write on Fresh Fig cardstock anyway so why not add in some more fun!

Check out the supplies listed below so you can recreate this card! Many of these items are retiring so get them before they are gone!

Layering Designer Paper!!!

Posted on

Do you love Designer Series Paper like me? The biggest struggle is which side do you use!!! 🙂 One of the things I like to do is use smaller pieces and use one side on the top of the card and the other on the bottom. Another option is to make strips and use both sides. There are lots of amazing ways to use designer paper. Check out my One Sheet Wonders for even more ideas!

Layering Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here I used 2 similar patterns from the same pack of Floral Romance Designer Series Paper!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I stamped the dots from the Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set in Petal Pink Ink. I made sure both images were falling off the paper a bit just so I know it was on the edge. Then I added the 2 strips of Floral Romance Designer Series Paper! One measures 4-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ and the other measures 4″ x 1″. They are overlapped just a bit.

Decorating in Odds, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp onto a Whisper White rectangle measuring 2-3/4″ x 3/4″. It is then layered onto a piece of Petal Pink measuring 3″ x 1″! Using the Spring Punch, I punched out 3 pieces in Mossy Meadow. You have to decorate in odds, right?!?!? Then, I added those to the back of the greeting, securing them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a little flower from the Frosted Flower Embellishments.

You're Amazing,  www.LaurasStampPad.com

But wait, there is more!!! I stamped those same dots on the inside as well a little greeting at the bottom! I love it!!! Decorating the inside of the card is so my jam right now!!! What about you?? Let me know in the comments below!

Mother’s Day Card Ideas!!!

Posted on

Happy Thursday!!! Mother’s Day is coming upon us and if you still need ideas, I got you!!! I have had so much fun with the Floral Romance Designer Paper/Vellum and the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set!!! Check out another sample here!

Mother's Day Card Ideas, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is one of my favorites using this amazing Floral Romance Designer Vellum. Stay tuned as I will be posting the other soon! The colors are soft and beautiful. That vellum is stunning and the little bling flowers are just perfect!

I started with a Fresh Fig card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ and layered on a piece of the Floral Romance Vellum measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I went a smidge less on the white because I didn’t want it to go all the way to the edge of the vellum in case it was a bit off. Also, I wanted the edge to fade off with the vellum. The awesome thing about this vellum is that your adhesive doesn’t show through. That is super awesome and I love it. No need to place adhesive in certain spots of anything!

For the focal point, I die cut a Stitched Shape Oval and stamped the greeting from Strong & Beautiful in Fresh Fig Ink. This greeting is perfect for Mother’s Day as it is just says it all!!! Using the Sprig Punch and Leaf Punch, I punched out some greenery in Mossy Meadow and placed it around the greeting. Of course I added it to the card from with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture! For the flowers, I used the Bitty Flowers Punch and Fresh Fig cardstock. To finish it off, I added some Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins to the center of each flower!

Happy Mother's Day, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside, I went with a piece of Petal Pink because I thought it was soft enough to write on but gave a little pop! I stamped the greeting from Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set. I also added a few flowers too! It’s just perfect for Mother’s Day and has that added touch of love since it is homemade!

Humming Along!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! It’s the start of a new week! Let’s make it a good one! Hopefully these cards will brighten you day and get it off to a good start! I know I am loving the Spectrum Pads and these amazing colors.

Humming Along, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t they beautiful?? I stamped them at different angles so then when I went to assemble them onto cards, I had to work with it! It was super fun to try a different look for each. Which is your favorite??

The card base for each is Gorgeous Grape and I stamped the flower from the Humming Along Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink. The polka dot layer is from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper and it measures 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. For the one below, I used a strip measuring 2″ x 5-1/2″.

Hummingbirds, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the hummingbird, I stamped it in a Spectrum Pad that I have inked with Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay. The Hummingbird is from the Humming Along Stamp Set as well. Some of them were stamped with blue on the top and some with blue on the bottom. Just changing the angle that you go across the ink pad can create a whole new look!

Amazing Birthday, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Of course, I had to decorate the inside of the card! I used more images from the Humming Along Stamp Set! It is just beautiful!!!

Don’t forget that Retiring List is out and these items are all while supplies last. The Humming Along Stamp Set and the Spectrum Pads are both retiring so get them today! Click here to start shopping or click the items below!

Stamping On Designer Paper!!!

Posted on

Typically I prefer a more clean, bold, solid look rather than shabby chic, rustic, or subtle look. What about you??? For this card though I decided to stamp on the background designer series paper rather than adding another layer. It like a whole new way of stamping for me. You should try it out! Stamping on Designer Paper is fun!

Stamping on Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Isn’t it beautiful?? Have I mentioned I also like flowers?!?! lol I love them so much I even created a Tag for easy search on all my flower cards. Just click here!

I started with a Pool Party card base. Next, I took a piece of the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration 2019) and adhered it down the center! Using the Painted Seasons Stamp Set and Tranquil Tide Ink, I stamped a few greenery pieces all around the top and bottom. This was done before layering the greeting and everything so it wasn’t in the way. Next, I added a little bit of adhesive in the center and pressed 2 pieces of the Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon into it. It is okay if the ribbon doesn’t seem super secure as the greeting will help hold it in place too!

Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The greeting is from the Part of My Story (Sale-A-Bration 2019) Stamp Set and I punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added the greeting to the card front. Dimensionals adhere to the ribbon and the bumps and grooves much better than using Snail Adhesive. Next, I stamped and die cut the flowers in Gorgeous Grape using the Painted Season Stamp Set. I added the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensonals too. To finish it off, I stamped a few Gorgeous Grape star clusters all around.

I really love how this card turned out and I am going to try stamping on designer paper more often now. What do you think?

Happy Stampin’
