Timeless Tidings Project Kit!!!

Posted on

Happy Thursday!!! Today, I’m sharing the Timeless Tidings Project Kit and let me tell you it is amazing!!! At first glace, I was like oh wow that’s pretty. It’s also amazing to get 20 cards in the kit. Then I opened it up and loved all the gold trims and pretty envelopes and printed pieces. Now I’m even more in love!!

Timeless Tidings Project Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Look at these beauties!!!! Aren’t they amazing? Those gold trim envelopes with stripes on the inside are super fun too!!! The other bonus that I was SUPER impressed was how simple these cards were. I honestly did 1 of each of these 4 while watching Claire (5 months old) in less than 30 minutes. That blew me away!

Poinsettia, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This one is my favorite! I love the big flower and little gold scallop. When looking at the card base, there is a black V along the card and this is for lining up the gold scallop trim. It makes layering super simple and easy. No worries about putting the gold trim up to high or low. I will say that the greeting is pretty TIGHT on that banner so be careful!

Evergreen Trees, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This one is my second favorite and honestly it would make a fabulous masculine birthday card too! Again, this card had a line to show where the gold trim. The gold trim for this one is the one with the little star on it. The instructions didn’t mention using the star but I added it to the one tree because why not. Stampin’ Up only added the star so you could differentiate which trim is used for which card. How perfect!!!! 🙂

Holly Berries, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the gold banner layered behind the greeting on this card. Simply layer each piece together for a fabulous look and add some gold rhinestones all over. Simple and fabulous!

Gold Trim, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So for this card, I actually popped up the holly piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Since the greeting goes over the top and I didn’t want it be double popped so I only added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the far right side and then regular Snail to the left side. This made it nice and smooth!

Die Cutting Multiples At Once!!!

Posted on

Time is precious and we all need more of it, am I right??? Today, I’m sharing with you a way for die cutting multiples at once and we can all thank Stampin’ Up for this amazing way!!!

Die Cutting Multiples At Once, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card was easy to create because the Frosted Bouquet Framelits have 2 of these small flower framelits in the set. I was able to die cut all of these flowers with just 2 cranks through the Big Shot! I love it!!!

For the card base, I used Pear Pizzazz card stock. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and embossed it with the Tufted Embossing Folder. Then I added it to the card front. Using the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, I die cut the label and stamped the greeting in Pear Pizzazz Ink. The greeting and flowers are all from the First Frost Stamp Set. Don’t forget to Bundle & Save 10% when you purchase the stamps and coordinating framelits. The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

First Frost Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the flowers, I stamped them in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and die cut them with the coordinating framelits. Since there are 2 framelits for the small flower, it was very quick to die cut all of these flowers! For the leaves, I stamped the leafy image from the stamp set all over in Pear Pizzazz Ink. Then I used the large leaf/stem image and die cut over the top. These two images do not coordinate but rather give a fun look of green and white on the leaves. You could always use the coordinating stamps and dies for a perfect look. Using Mini Glue Dots, I added the leaves around the greeting and then placed the flowers over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added Frosted Epoxy Droplets which I’m super loving. Those things are so pretty and really pop!!!

Check out more samples using the Frosted Floral Suite here and here! I’m really loving this suite! What about you? Let me know in the comments below!

Technique Tuesday – Securing Chicken Wire to Your Card!!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fun technique!!! We are securing Chicken Wire to your card….well not real chicken wire! Instead Stampin’ Up has created this fun Chicken Wire Element that is super cute and easy to add to your project!

Securing Chicken Wire to Your Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is perfect for Fall and Thanksgiving! I’m loving the colors and elements so much from the Country Lane Suite!

I started with an Old Olive card base. Next, I took a piece of Crumb Cake (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the cotton floral image from the Country Home Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. I used the Stamparatus so I had even spacing side to side and the images didn’t overlap. Not having to stress about stamp placement is amazing! Using the Stampin’ Blends, I colored the flowers. For the white cotton, I used the White Watercolor Pencil. It worked perfectly! Next, I added this piece to the card front.

Harvest Blessings, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it in Pumpkin Pie from the Country Home Stamp Set. I made sure to stamp it on the right hand side so I had room for my ribbon and bow on the left. Next, I layered this onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock. For the bow, I actually added a small piece of Braided  Linen Thread to the end, wrapping the ends to the back side and securing with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I took another piece to tie a bow and secure it on with a Mini Glue Dot. This faux bow look makes it look like it is wrapped around but yet the bow is not sideways! It’s perfect!

Before adding this on, I placed the Chicken Wire Element on the bottom of the Crumb Cake cardstock. I didn’t actually use adhesive on that piece but secured it with the Country Lane Designer Paper. Be sure to place the greeting piece off to the side as a guide for how low the designer paper needs to go so you aren’t covering up the designer paper or all of your stamped flowers. After securing the designer paper, I added the greeting on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals!!!

Technique Tuesday – Black Ice Technique!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you!!! Today, it is the Black Ice Technique which I learned from the fabulous stamper, Karla Endris!!! Thanks Karla for this fun technique!!!

Black Ice Technique, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This picture sure doesn’t do this card any justice because you need to rotate it to see the fun shine!!!

I started with a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock and stamped the tin tile image on each corner. This is from the Country Home Stamp Set and I used Coastal Cabana Ink for that subtle look. Next, I took a piece of the Galvanized Metallic Paper and lightly brushed Stazon Ink up and down the cardstock. Don’t be too heavy handed as you want it to look streaky and not solid. Then I stamped the flowers and pitcher from the Country Home Stamp Set in Stazon Ink and set it with the Heat Tool so it wouldn’t smear.

Flowers in a Kettle, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now it is time for the ice part of the Black Ice Technique. Simply press the VersaMark Ink all over the top of your image to coat the entire piece. Then add Clear Embossing Powder for all of it and set it with the heat tool. Now you have that glassy shine of your image! I finished it off by coloring with the Stampin’ Blends Markers and layering it onto Basic Black cardstock. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture, I added it to the card front!

Teal Milk Pail, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is another sample that I created using that same Country Home Stamp Set!

Technique Tuesday – Diagonal Opening Card!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have  a fabulous technique to share. This one might not look cool at first but then when you open it you see the real magic. This diagonal opening card is super fun and the concept can be used for any occasion! Thank you to Margo Richardson for the amazing idea!

Diagonal Opening Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

At first, I started with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of Melon Mambo cardstock. I cut it diagonally from corner to corner using the Stampin’ Trimmer. Be sure to take out the scoring blade and then the cutting blade will be able to cut all the way to the ends. Also, I recommend starting in the middle and pushing out so you don’t crinkle the corner tips. Now that you have a giant triangle, it’s time to score. Score from the corner over to 5-1/2 and up at 4-1/4″. This will create a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ rectangle in the corner and two triangle flaps to fold over as the front of the card!

Triangle Card, www.LaurasStamppad.com

Now that we have the card base complete, it’s time to decorate. For the inside, I added a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I stamped the greeting and flower from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set. The greeting was done in Pacific Point Ink and the flower was Melon Mambo and Emerald Envy Ink. On the left hand side, I added a little piece of the leftover designer paper after cutting for the front of the card!

Roses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the front of the card, I cut a piece of Pacific Point cardstock into a 4″ x 5-1/4″ rectangle and then I cut it diagonally from corner to corner. Making sure I had the piece positioned correctly for the card, I placed it into the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. There is only one way the paper can go on the card. These weird sized triangles make that part a little tricky. Using a piece of the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, I cut it into a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece and cut it diagonally as well. The greeting was stamped in Pacific Point Ink from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set. I inked it up and then stamped three times without going back to the ink for that ombre look. This piece was layered on to a scallop square of Silver Foil Paper. I used the Layering Squares Framelits to die cut it out. When placing the greeting on the front of the card, be sure to only add adhesive to the one corner/triangle so that it doesn’t seal the card closed! 🙂

Comfort & Joy!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!! Comfort & Joy….those are 2 things we all need in our lives especially during the Holiday Season. Sometimes I feel like we get all into the hustle and bustle of it and then we don’t enjoy it. This year I wish you all the comfort and joy!!! Get a head start on your cards now and work on them just a little bit each night or each weekend. You will be done in no time and not feel stressed about it all!

Comfort and Joy, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is really easy to create and with a few simple steps you can recreate it and have yours done in no time! I’ll list the steps to create this into batches so you can do one step each time you have a moment to create.

  1. Create Whisper White card bases measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and fold in half.
  2. Cut Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (or paper of your choice) into 4″ x 5-1/4″ rectangles. Add this to the front of the card bases.
  3. Cut Garden Green cardstock into 2″ x 5-1/4″ rectangles. Add this to the front of the card in the center.
  4. Cut 3 Whisper White pieces as follows: two 1-1/2″ squares and one 2″ x 1-1/2″ rectangle.
  5. On the rectangle, stamp the greeting from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink.
  6. One the squares, stamp the poinsettia flower from the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.
  7. Add these to the card front by adding the squares on either side flush with the edge. Then place the greeting in the middle. This works best for spacing.
  8. Finish off the card with some bling in the centers. I used the Frost & Clear Epoxy Droplets. Before placing them on the card front, I added the yellow with a Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker!

Colored Epoxy Droplets, www.LaurasStampPad.com

In 8 simple steps, you can have lots of these cards created. I have listed the supplies below so you can get started! The Dashing Along Designer Paper is FREE this month only for orders (or parties) of $250 or more. See if your friends need to order some goodies and combine them together to earn this for FREE or stock on some basics for another project.

Spread comfort and joy this season!

Oh Darling, You Are Fabulous!!!!

Posted on

I don’t know if I have ever said Oh Darling before but this Oh Darling, You Are Fabulous greeting is fun! I do love the word fabulous and say it a lot!! Do you say either of these phrases?

Oh Darling You Are Fabulous, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I have used this card concept many many times but it’s a classic. It works so well and there are lots of ways to mix it up. Change the designer paper, the greeting label piece, and the ribbon for a totally different look each time.

I started with a So Saffron card base. Next, I took a piece of Mint Macaron measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I added a piece of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper (4″ x 3″) to the bottom half. This 3″ x 4″ piece is perfect because it uses every bit of the 12″ x 12″ sheet of paper. Using some Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, I covered up the line where the designer paper ends. The ends of the ribbon are wrapped around to the back side and secured with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Then I added this piece to the card front.

For the greeting, I die cut out the label using the Stitched Labels Framelits. Then I stamped the greeting from the coordinating Stitched All Around Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink. I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well because I wanted a nice smooth greeting piece. Otherwise it would be lumpy over the ribbon.

Have you created a card with this layout before? Let me know in the comments below. If you haven’t, I highly recommend it because it’s fun and simple!

Frilly & Fancy Free!!!

Posted on

I never did get these fabulous samples posted last month showcasing the Blended Seasons Bundle. Today, I’m sharing them because they are just fabulous, frilly & fancy free!!!! Those that have this bundle can create these exactly and those who missed out on this amazing bundle can always use the card concept with other stamps and framelits!

Frilly & Fancy Free, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am loving this color combination – Gorgeous Grape & Soft Sea Foam! 🙂 The simple details and texture from the die cuts make it quick and fabulous!

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card base and stamped the greenery all over the background using the Blended Seasons Stamp Set. Next, I die cut the labels from the Stitched Seasons Framelits in Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White. Be sure to save the frames for another project!!! On the Whisper White label, I stamped the greeting in Gorgeous Grape and added the die cut filigree images. The Fine Tip Glue Pen works amazing for adhering those. When I layered these labels, I added the grape one flat. Then I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the white one and stuck some die cut greenery on there as well.

Using the Negative Die Cut, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card was created very similar but I used the Gorgeous Grape frame from the card above rather than another die cut label. For the center Whisper White label, I stamped the greeting lower and added a die cut bow from the same Stitched Seasons Framelits Set. For some more texture, I put loops of Metallic Silver Thread behind the white label securing it with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

Which one is your favorite – the bow card on the left or the filigree and greenery on the right? Let me know in the comments below!!!

August 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Blissful Blooms!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! Starting off the week simple with the August 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Blissful Blooms. I can honestly say I finished this kit in 30 minutes.  It was super simple and I LOVE IT! It’s got flowers on it after all! Click here to get signed up for September! 

August 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Blissful Blooms

This is just half of the kit. There are a total of 10 cards. Five of them have a large floral piece with a smaller greeting and the other five have a floral with an open center for a bigger greeting. Also, check out those gorgeous silver trim envelopes with the speckled inside. LOVE IT!!!

You make me so happy, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is the other set of five cards and these envelopes have pink speckles. The greetings in the stamp set are just amazing too! Check out the greeting I put on the inside in the photo below!

Love Left Behind, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The kit was made for me with this greeting. I just feel like it says so much when you don’t know what else to say. I love it!

Vellum Florals, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So for this card, I added adhesive to the back of the greeting, placed the vellum pieces down and then added the twine. I secured the twine with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the top. The twine starts on one end and goes to the other end in a loop, back to the other side to loop and then the end on the other side. I hope that makes sense. There is a loop and an end on each side. I will say that you need to be careful how far out your vellum and ribbon goes so it doesn’t hang off the card.

August Paper Pumpkin Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For this card, I created loops in the twine and secured it with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Simple and fabulous to create 10 cards so quickly! I love it!

If you love Halloween, you need to sign up for the September Kit!! Click here to get signed up for September! It’s going to be Spooky!
