I Made This!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited to share this card because I made this one and I super struggle with Man Cards!

I made this, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is quick and simple and simple and masculine. I just love bling, ribbons, and pinks so much that I struggle with masculine cards a lot. When I create a good one, I tend to make LOTS to use all year long.

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base. Next, I took a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Paper (3″ x 4″) and stamped the tree from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set. I used Mossy Meadow Ink for all of the images on this card. Then, I placed (NOT adhered…yet) this onto a piece of Crumb Cake measuring 4″ x 4″. I stamped the greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday along the top and bottom. I really really wanted my Stamparatus to work for the greeting and just notch the platform down for each greeting but the greeting was too long and the spacing was odd. Soooooo I just thought I would wing it and it was fabulous but this is also why I suggest not adhering it till after your greeting is stamped. Simply place the stamped designer paper on it so you can line things up. Then hold your breath and stamp. Just kidding it’s only 3 times and it’s okay if they aren’t perfectly straight across or evenly spaced. Mine sure aren’t and it’s still fabulous! Also, always remember there are 2 sides to every piece of paper! 😉

After stamping the greeting, added the stamped designer paper and adhere it to the card front! For the finishing touch, I tied some Linen Thread along the spine of the card, looping around 3 times. Since linen thread  is so thin, I always double knot it before tying the bow! This way it is nice and tight around the card and if you think bows are not masculine, you can leave it as a knot.

Check out the supply list below to recreate this card for all of the men in your life! Also, if you purchase all the supplies to make this card, you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! Woot Woot!!!

You Are Loved!!!

Posted on

Valentine’s Day is around the corner…..okay more like around this corner and that corner. BUT that means you still have plenty of time to create some fabulous cards for those you love or treats for kid’s classmates and teachers. Some like to think that Valentine’s Day is all hearts and chocolates for your significant other. I like to think of Valentine’s Day as a day to share your love with those around you…..like everyone. Also, I prefer cupcakes over chocolate! 🙂 This card saying You Are Loved is perfect for anyone!

You are loved, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Tell me this….how do you feel when someone says I love you to you?? For me, I feel warm and fuzzy. I feel like I matter and someone cares about me and that makes me very happy. Since that is the way I feel, I like to think others feel the same. This is why we should always send or share our love! I’m pretty sure my brother would roll his eyes if I said I love you to his face. So to spare the embarrassment, I send a card…after all I do love him and every other member of my family. My sister doesn’t roll her eyes! 🙂

This card is quick and simple. I started  with a Whisper White card base and stamped the hearts down the left side. The hearts are from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog and they are stamped in Flirty Flamingo!! Next, I took a 3″ square piece of the All My Love Designer Series Paper and layered it onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I added this to the card front!

All My Love Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch. I added the greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture! Using the Flirty Flamingo Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, I tied a bow and added it with a Mini Glue Dot. On the bottom of the card, I added a few Clear Epoxy Hearts. The perfect card for Valentine’s Day…..or any day of the year!

Season of Good Cheer!!!!

Posted on

Happy feels like Monday!!!! Today is the last day of the Holiday Mini Catalog!!! Lots of the items are on sale too! If you are one of those who gets their Christmas Cards done in January with the sale items from the season, click here to get these goodies!

Season of Good Cheer, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I just couldn’t not show this beautiful card. It’s got flowers, shimmer, and warmth! I used the First Frost Bundle and Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper!!! I love it so much and it’s great for lots of occasions!

I started with a Mint Macaron card base. Then I layered on a piece of the Frosted Floral Designer Paper (3″ x 4″) on the bottom. One the top, I embossed a piece of Tranquil Tide with the Layered Leave Embossing Folder and added it to the card front! For the decoration, I stamped the flowers in Blackberry Bliss from the First Frost Stamp Set. The awesome thing about die cutting these flowers out is that there are multiple flower dies in the set. This cuts your die cutting time down a lot!!! The leaves were punched using the Sprig Punch and Leaf Punch.

Sprig & Leaf Punch, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I used the layered greeting dies from the Frosted Bouquet Framelits. The greeting was stamped in Blackberry Bliss from the First Frost Stamp Set. I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added all of the leaves around the greeting with Snail Adhesive. Don’t worry if there isn’t a ton of adhesive on the leaves because the flowers will also hold them on. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals on the flowers. To finish it off, I placed an Epoxy Dot in the center of the flowers for a little more shimmer!

I love this color combination so much!!! Also, I have to mention that the First Frost Bundle is not retiring with the Holiday Mini Catalog. You can still purchase this bundle through the Occasions Mini Catalog!!! Woot Woot!!! Check out the supply list for this card below! Don’t forget that the Occasions Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration begin tomorrow!

Friends Make the Season Shine!!!

Friends Make the Season Shine!!! This greeting is just perfect and makes this card sweet! I love it!!!

Friends Make the Season Shine, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I got this idea for this card at a stamp event with fellow demonstrators. I modified it a few different ways for various classes I have had. I almost think I like the simply look better than the more detailed on. Let me know which you prefer in the comment below!

I started with a Real Red card base and stamped the lights along the left side in Real Red Ink. All of the images used on this card are from the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Don’t forget this catalog ends on January 2nd! Next, I cut a piece of Call Me Clover (2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″) and added it to the card front. Then I cut a piece of the All is Bright Designer Series Paper (2″ x 3″) and placed it over the clover piece, flush with the right side edge.

Shining Bright, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the focal point, I stamped the greeting in Call Me Clover onto a piece of Whisper White (1″ x 3″). Then I flipped it over and added both the ribbon loop and sequin circles to the back securing with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ribbon is the Real Red Mixed Satin Ribbon and I just folded it in half. For the Gold Sequin Trim, I wrapped it around my fingers a few times and then slid it off and placed it on the back. You all know how much I love Stampin’ Dimensionals so of course I used plenty to secure the ribbons and to make the greeting pop! Next, I stamped the light bulb in Crushed Curry Ink and the end in Memento Black Ink. Using the coordinating Bulb Builder Punch, I punched it and adhered it to the card front. I finished off the card with a few Red Rhinestones!

Gold Sequin Trim, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here I created a similar card but left off the Real Red Ribbon, Rhinestones, and Light Bulb. I do like how the Gold Sequin Trim stands out more though. Which is your favorite?

Posted on

The Occasions Mini Catalog is coming out on January 3rd. There are so many goodies so I just can’t wait till then to start showing you everything!!! Today, I’m sharing the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper!!! This paper is so pretty and detailed. It seriously looks like needlepoint which is so cool!

Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Isn’t it so pretty??? I love that this paper includes like every color and not just a specific shade of a color. Pinks, Greens, Blues, Purple, Red, and Pink are all in this paper pack. That gives this paper a nice variety and so many different options to go with as your base color to coordinate. Even if you aren’t a fan of some of the needlepoint looks, the other side of the paper is fabulous with simple solid color prints. It is so versatile.

Designer Series Paper Scraps Used Up!!!

Posted on

Come on I know we all have plenty of scraps laying around. Today I’m sharing how to get those Designer Series Paper scraps used up!!!

Designer Series Paper Scraps Used Up, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card uses scraps of designer paper measuring 4″ x 1-1/4″. I mixed and matched the pieces together. Some of the patterns I used both the front and the back and others I just used one of the sides for each card. All of these are layered on a piece of Early Espresso cardstock measuring 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″. My tip for getting the spacing correct is to start on the outside and work your way in. All of this was layered onto a Whisper White card base.

For the decoration, I added a piece of the Real Red Satin Ribbon with the loop at the top and the ends hanging down. Simply add a smidge (an inch) of adhesive to the card and press the ribbon into it. Then place your greeting over the top to help secure it. The greeting uses the Laying Circles Framelits in Old Olive and Whisper White. The greeting was stamped in Early Espresso from the Stylish Christmas Stamp Set from the Annual Catalog! Of course the greeting is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture and a smooth finish over that ribbon!

What designer paper pack do you have lots of scraps from? What style of card or occasion are you going to make this with pattern?? Let me know in the comments below!

Merry & Bright!!!

Posted on

It’s the Christmas Season so we should all be merry & bright……right??? We should all try at least. I know the holidays can make us all a little crazy and stressed out trying to get everything done. Thank goodness Claire is too little to know this year because I feel like that is helping me ease into this all. I promise she will have a stocking next year. 🙂

Merry & Bright, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the bright colors of this card and that cute little greeting. This was another fabulous card idea that I got from Vacation Stamping School. Swapping ideas with other stampers is the best!!!!

I started with a Real Red card base and added some of the All is Bright Designer Series Paper to the center. Next, I stamped the lightbulbs and punched them out with the Making Christmas Bright Stamp Set and coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. I used Call Me Clover, Crushed Curry, and Real Red Inks. For the ends of the bulbs, I punched out Gold Glimmer Paper. To adhere the pieces together, I added a Mini Glue Dot to the end of the colored bulb and pressed the gold end onto it. Then I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional on the end and a regular Stampin’ Dimensional on the bulb.

Colored Christmas Light Bulbs, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I punched out a 2-1/4″ Circle Punch and stamped the wreath image from the Making Christmas Bright in Crushed Curry Ink. Then I stamped the line in Memento Black Ink and added the light bulbs. Be sure to place them down so your words read correctly. That may sound silly but I just about had it say And Bright Merry. 🙂 I added this to the card front and finished it off with some Real Red Rhinestones!!! It’s the perfect little card for the season.
