Thank you to all of the Men and Women who have served and are currently serving in our Armed Forces. I’m excited to share with you another fabulous One Sheet Wonder with the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper!!!

Floral Boutique One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Look at all of these beautiful cards! I just love that girl stamped (in any pose) as she adds so much to the card with just a simple stamp! All of these cards use the same pattern at the One Sheet Wonder I did last week with the Eastern Palace Suite. Click here to check those out! Now on to each of these cards!

Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStamppad.com

After cutting the piece of Designer Series Paper into four 6″ squares, I took one and cut it into four 3″ squares. Then I created each of these cards with those piece. I used Whisper White, Night of Navy, and Marina Mist as my card bases and accent pieces. For the greetings, I used the Beautiful You Stamp Set and the retiring Birthday Blast Stamp Set.

Beautiful You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I took another 6″ square and cut it into nine 1-1/2″ squares. Some of them I cut in half and some of them I left the full size. I added some Rhinestones, Silver Metallic Thread, and Whisper White Ribbon as accents.

Dancing Girl, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For these cards,  I used one of the 6″ squares and cut it into 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strips. I used up some scraps of cardstock that were ripped to add as a little layer behind the designer paper!

One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the last 4 cards in the Floral Boutique One Sheet Wonder, I cut the 6″ square into three 4″ x 2″ piece and the leftover piece is 2″ x 5-1/2″. I love how quick and simple these cards are to create. Using just 2 stamp sets and 1 ink pad, there were very few options for me to think over. The clean up was very minimal as  well!

If you would like to see this all in action, check out the Video Tutorial here!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Don’t forget that the retiring items will no longer be available after May 31st! Click here to make sure you aren’t missing out on anything! The NEW Catalog starts on Thursday!

Tempting Techniques – Eastern Elegance One Sheet Wonder!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Today, I’m sharing an amazing technique with you – Eastern Elegance One Sheet Wonder! I know how much you all love One Sheet Wonders so here is another fabulous one! I am loving the Eastern Elegance Suite! It’s beautiful!

Eastern Elegance One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

How amazing and beautiful are these cards?!?!?! I just love them and they were so quick to create because I used just 4 Ink Pads, 1 Stamp Set, 1 Framelit Set, and just a few colors! I used all Whisper White Cards Bases….except that one in Dapper Denim! 🙂 Now let’s get started on the cutting and assembling!

Eastern Palace Greetings, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started off by making lots of greeting tags. The Eastern Beauty Stamp Set has so many fabulous images to create the coolest greetings! I die cut them with the coordinating Eastern Medallion Framelits and they were ready to grab and go when I was assembling the cards! The colors I used were Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, and Lemon Lime Twist which are all NEW In-Colors!!!

3x3 Squares, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started out with a 12″ x 12″ piece of Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper and I cut it into 6″ x 6″ squares. With one of the squares, I cut it in half both ways creating four 3″ squares. Finally I cut 2 of those in half diagonally to create the top cards above and just used them as a square for the bottom two cards. I used a little bit of coordinating Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide cardstock for layering. The stamps are from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set!

2x2 Squares, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I took another 6″ Square and cut it into nine 1-1/2″ squares. I added those to the cards above in different ways with greetings and some of the Gold Vinyl Stickers to decorate!!! That gold tassel is just fabulous as well and not super bulky either! Bonus!

One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The next 6″ Square was cut at 4″. Then with the 4″ x 6″ piece, I cut it into three 1-1/2″ x 4″ strips. With the leftover piece of 2″ x 6″, I sniped off that last 1/2″ and used it for the lower right corner card. The other 3 pieces are perfect for layering across your card as a center band! I used Dapper Denim, Fresh Fig, and Tranquil Tide for layering on these cards!

Eastern Beauty, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the final 6″ Square, I cut it at 5-1/2″. Using the 5-1/2″ x 6″ piece, I cut at 1-1/2 (along the 6″ side) to create four 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strips. I really loved using the amazing stamp set to create background, borders, and greetings! The gold stickers are pretty amazing too for a little pop of bling!!! You can  get all the items I used in this One Sheet Wonder in the Premier Bundle of the Eastern Palace Suite! I mean everything, even the Very Vanilla cardstock and envelopes which come FREE! This bundle is super fabulous and only available this month! Next month, each item will be sold individually and you won’t get the freebies!

Something You Always Should Have On Hand!!!

Posted on

You Always Should Have On Hand, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Sympathy and Thinking of You cards aren’t always what I think to create but they are ones that you always should have on hand. These are the cards that you can’t always plan for like Birthdays so it’s always good to have a few on hand for when you need one. I really like sending out Thinking of You cards. I send them out when someone is nervous about a project at work, dealing with a lot of craziness in life, or just because to brighten their day! You can also use thinking of you cards for sympathy as well.

This card is quick and simple and easy to whip up lots of them in no time at all. I started with a Very Vanilla card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum (4″ x 4″) and layered on some Falling In Love Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″). That is layered and placed near the top of the card. Next, I stamped the greeting from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Sweet Sugarplum Ink. Another great set that I like to use is the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set. To finish off the card, I added some ribbon around the card. This is why I went with the 4-1/4″ x 11 card base!!! I used the Metallic Gold Ribbon which comes in the Sale-A-Bration Ribbon Pack with Metallic Silver Ribbon. You can pick this as one of the free items when you order $50!

I created 9 of these cards in no time at all with just that 1 sheet of the Falling In Love Designer Paper! You can see a few other samples using this card style here and here! I love One Sheet Wonders because I never want to waste my Designer Series Paper. Also, when making multiples with one sheet of paper, you can mix and match and use both sides. This takes the stress out of it and wondering which side you are going to glue down! 🙂 Let me know your favorite in the comments below!

Carried Away!!!

Posted on

Birthday Hot Air Balloons, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am soooo in love with this style of card. I have used it with some many different styles of Designer Paper and they are all so amazing! It is a quick and simple style but yet beautiful! I just love it!!

I started with a piece of Whisper White measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″ for the card base! Then I took a piece of Night of Navy (4″ x 4″) and layered on a piece of the Carried Away Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″). I added this piece to the card front towards the top. For the greeting, I stamped it from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink. I added some Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon around the card and tied it into a knot! Simple and fabulous!!!

Smiles Across Miles, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This one I did with Real Red cardstock layering the Carried Away Designer Paper. I used some of the Gold Metallic Ribbon which is another fabulous Sale-A-Bration item you can pick for Free with every $50 order! I also added a little red star from the Brights Enamel Shapes.

There are so many different ways you can create this card with different Designer Paper, different ribbons, adding some bling and changing up the greeting!

You can purchase the Lift Me Up Bundle, which includes the Lift Me Up Stamp Set and coordinating Up & Away Thinlits, and the Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon and then get the Carried Away Designer Series Paper for FREE!!! Sale-A-Bration is such a fun time of the year. You get to pick out a free item with every $50.00 in product that you order! It is like you are being rewarded for shopping! Love it!!!

Technique Tuesday – Floral Boutique One Sheet Wonder!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!!! I hope you are having a wonderful week and if you are like me, you have no clue what day it really is….the holidays always do this! Before long it will be the weekend again and another holiday!!! Today I’m sharing a favorite – One Sheet Wonders!!!
Floral Boutique One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So technically only 9 of these cards came from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper but I couldn’t stop at just 1 sheet so I made TONS!!!

Supplies for the One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

You will need the following:

9 Crumb Cake Card Bases – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

9 Night of Navy Cardstock – 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″

1 Sheet of 12″ x 12″ Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper – cut into 4″ Squares = 9 squares

Floral Boutique Washi Tape

9 Whisper White Cardstock – 1-1/2″ x 4″

For all of the greetings and stamped decorations, I used the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set and Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink and Crumb Cake Ink! I like using just 1 or 2 stamp sets and ink pads because it makes it quick and simple without pulling out all of the supplies you have and making a huge mess!!!

Sympathy Note, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the card on the left, I added some Washi Tape to the greeting piece and layered it all together. For the card on the right, I cut an inch off the top of  4″ Square giving me a 1″ piece for the top and 3″ for the bottom!

Floral Boutique Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com  You can swap the Designer Paper to be on the top or bottom. I added a little bit of the Washi Tape on the overlap of the Designer Paper and greeting piece!

Sending You Love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I will say for the diagonal one, you will need a longer piece of Whisper White but that depends on your angle. Just take a strip that is 1-1/4″ and then trim down once you have cut your Designer Paper. The 4″ square was cut diagonal at any angle you wish! For the card on the right, I cut the 4″ square in half and put it on the top and bottom!

Navy and Tan, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the Washi Tape on both of these. You can add some more design to the greeting piece with stamps, enamel shapes, or punched pieces!

Fantastic Person, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the confetti swirl in the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set! Super fun!!!

You Can Do It, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So many fun prints but they all look amazing! You could cut up the entire package of Floral Boutique Designer Paper and make 108 cards in no time at all!!!

If you would like to see these cards in action, check out the Video Tutorial below or click here! Don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and be sure to subscribe if you are new!!!

Quick & Simple Holiday Cards!!!

Posted on

simple-4x4-dsp-card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This time of year calls for quick and simple because it is a crazy time of the year. Well check out these amazing and simple cards that you can create with any Designer Series Paper of your choice!!! We all love all of the patterns there are out there or have tons of them that we are hording to that perfect project!!! Well this is the perfect project because you can use both sides AND you use every single inch of the 12″ x 12″ sheet! No waste!!!!

Presents & Pinecones, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper for these samples. You can pick your favorite and cut it all into 4″ x 4″ squares! That is 9 cards from each sheet of Designer Paper!

Holly One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with Whisper White card bases and then cut the 4″ Square diagonally. There is no right or wrong way to cut it and no measurements. You can go from the top left to bottom right or bottom left to top right. Just place it in the Stampin’ Trimmer at an angel and go for it! I will say it you are making multiples, be sure to keep the 2 pieces together and not toss them all together. This way you know which ones pair together! 🙂

Christmas Bells, www.LaurasStampPad.com

You will want to set one of the pieces on your card base as a guide to stamp. Stamp your greeting and any extras as you wish. I used the Peaceful Pines Stamp Set for the greeting and little snowflakes. I did the greeting in Delightful Dijon Ink and the snowflakes in Mint Macaron Ink. I just picked the colors from the list of colors provided on the Designer Series Paper package. This makes it super simple! Now that you greeting is on, you can adhere your pieces of designer paper above and below! You are all set!!! How simple is that??? This One Sheet Wonder is perfect for making lots of cards very quickly!

If you would like to see this all in action and another fabulous quick card, check out my Video Tutorial below or click here! I will be posting the other sample shown in the video tomorrow!

Halloween One Sheet Wonder!!!

Posted on

Halloween One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Halloween is right around the corner and I know how much you all love One Sheet Wonders!!! By request from one of my YouTube Subscribers, I have created a Halloween One Sheet Wonder that includes cards and treats!!! I love this set and it is perfect for having a few cards on hand to send to loved ones and a few treats for trick-or-treats or nieces and nephews in my case!!! Let’s get started!

One Sheet Wonder Template, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is the template I used for this Halloween Set. You might remember that the bottom row is the same as the other template. You can check out samples of that here, here, here, and here! I used the bottom row for all of the 6 cards.

6 Cards One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The paper I used is from the Holiday Mini Catalog and it is called Halloween Night. Since I am not a huge Halloween fan, I purchased this paper and used a all occasion greeting set I have on hand and made these beauties. I used Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate for the card bases and pulled out some Basic Black scraps for layering. TIP: The black just lines the edge of the Designer Paper, not the entire portion. This is how you can use up those little pieces of scraps. The bottom middle card was created using the 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ and I cut it to 4-1/4 to go sideways on the card. Since it wasn’t that wide, I cut it in half and added a piece up high and down low and put a strip of Basic Black in the middle! 😉 See there are so many ways you can create fun cards with the One Sheet Wonder Technique! The greetings were all stamped with the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and punched out with the Classic Label Punch. I wanted a larger greeting to pop more on the card so I layered that onto the Decorative Label Punch and added loop of Metallic Black Thread behind it. I added some Enamel Shapes to a few of them! I love those things!

6 Treat Boxes in One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The top row is for these adorable treat boxes using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. I took each of those 2″ x 6″ pieces and scored them just a hair below the 2″ mark and 4″ mark so they would fold into the box. Since the box is 2″, you want to go a smidge less so it fits inside. Pop the Designer Paper into the box and add candy! For the outside decoration, I used Burlap Ribbon and Thick White Baker’s Twine. I stamped the For You from the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. I thought it looked too long for the tiny box so I cut one end off, punched a hole with the 1/8″ Handheld Punch and tied it to the treats with Black Metallic Thread. Love it! They do hold a decent amount of candy but they are so adorable!!!

So 6 cards and 6 treat boxes from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Paper is super fabulous and if you want to see the Video Tutorial of all of this, check out the one below or click here! Don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and be sure to subscribe if you are new!

Technique Tuesday – Red, White, & Blue One Sheet Wonder

Posted on

Happy Tuesday everyone!! You know what that means! I have a fabulous technique to share. It isn’t a new one but it’s a popular one. I had a request to do a One Sheet Wonder in Red, White and Blue!!! This One Sheet Wonder was created by me! I stamped a sheet of 12″ x 12″ Whisper White cardstock to create all 14 cards!

Stars Thank You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t they beautiful??? Quick, simple and super fun!!! I started with 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ Whisper White cardstock and stamped the stars image from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set all over in Night of Navy ink. Yes I did stamp that image like 500 million times. 🙂 It was totally worth it though!!! Now I have my “designer paper” and it is time to cut it into pieces. Here is a template!

12 x 12 One Sheet Wonder Template

You can always change your’s up and create any style of pieces you would like. I usually leave that little 1/4″ on there rather than cutting it off the bottom left corner. I cut the top portion into two 5-1/2″ x 2″ pieces to get even more cards. It’s all up to you!

Red, White, & Blue, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Once I had all of the designer paper cut into pieces, I cut 14 card bases in Real Red cardstock! I also pulled out some scrap white cardstock and stamped the greeting. I used the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and coordinating Duet Banner Punch (Bundle & Save 10%). Now it’s time to assemble!

Stars, www.LaurasStampPad.com  I added all of the designer pieces to the cards and then attached the greeting. Some of the pieces I added a little bit of Night of Navy to layer and add some more color! Of course the greetings were added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Red.White.Blue, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These cards would be perfect to make for party invites for a 4th of July Party, July Birthdays, or a thank you to our service men and women!! There are endless possibilities with cards like these!

One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I made all 14 cards with just one sheet of 12″ x 12″ paper. How amazing is that?!?!?! I love it! You could use lots of the images from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set to have cards for all seasons and events!

If you would like to see this in action, check out my Video Tutorial below or click here! Don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and be sure to subscribe if you are new. I post every Tuesday and Thursday!

Technique Tuesday – One Sheet Wonder Flower Bouquet!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means…..I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! This isn’t a new one but it is with a new look! I know how much you all love my One Sheet Wonder Techniques so I am sharing another fabulous one!

Flower OSW, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Look at these beauties!!! You all know I love flowers and this paper from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper Stack is amazing!!! What better way to use this amazing paper than with a One Sheet Wonder Technique so you can use every bit of it and both sides!! I made 14 cards with this ONE piece of 12″ x 12″ paper. Here is the template!

12 x 12 One Sheet Wonder Template

I have modified it a little bit but cutting 2 pieces of 2″ x 5-1/2″ with that leftover gray piece on top. Also, I don’t always cut those little bits off in the second row either. You can do whatever you want to create these amazing cards!

Birthday Bouquet OSW, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These 6 cards were created with most of the bottom row on the template and those 2 pieces cut from the top gray portion. Quick and simple cards. I looked at the list of colors that are printed on the Designer Series Paper Pack for card bases – Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, and Pool Party. I pulled out some scraps of each of those colors as well to use for layering and the greetings.

Diagonal Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here are the 2 samples using that far right corner. I just ripped it corner to corner and added it to my card base. I stamped the greeting from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and added some ribbon – Whisper White Cotton Ribbon and Venetian Trim.

One Sheet Wonder Squares, www.LaurasStampPad.com

You can always leave the square pieces as strips if you don’t like this look. Here I took the little squares and backed them with cardstock for a little extra pop of color. I added some Linen Thread to the one in the middle.

Quick and Simple OSW, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here I used some of the strips from the 2nd row on the template. You will notice that the Thoughts & Prayers image doesn’t fit in the Decorative Label Punch so I used that greeting when I could stamp it directly onto the card. I love how you can mix and match and create so many amazing cards so quickly!

If you would like to see this all in action, check out the Video Tutorial below or click here! Be sure to give it a thumbs up if you liked it and don’t forget to subscribe if you are new! I post every Tuesday and Thursday!
