Technique Tuesday – Wooden Crate of Chocolate!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share and this one is a wooden crate of chocolate!!! YUM!

Wooden Crate of Chocolate, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t these adorable and super real looking with that Wood Textures Designer Series Paper???

The Wood Textures Designer Series Paper comes in a 6″ x 6″ Stack and both sides of the paper are the same pattern. This is perfect so that the inside of  your box looks the same. I love that! I die cut out 2 of the box dies from the Wood Crate Framelits to create the box. This requires 2 sheets of  the Designer Paper but don’t worry we will be using the leftovers. 🙂 Using some of those leftover pieces, I die cut out the little tag for the treat bag.

Now for assembling the box, I scored on all of the lines and added Tear and Tape to the side and bottom tabs. I prefer Tear and Tape for this because you can apply it to the box in advance. Then reveal it as you need it without having sticky tabs in your way! Another tip for assembling the box is to press it flat to the tab rather that doing it in the air. This will make for a more square/even box and it won’t be off set.

For the decorations, I stamped the star from the Wood Words Stamp Set in Night of Navy and Real Red. Using the Wood Crate Framelit, I die cut them out and placed them on either side with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. (Bundle & Save 10%) I wanted to make sure the sticky wasn’t peaking through the slats. Now for the chocolate, I placed it into a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag and tied it up with some Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon. Next, I stamped the greeting onto the little tag and tied it around with Linen Thread. All of this rustic look is just precious!

As you can see, 2 of the Lindor Truffle Chocolates fit perfectly on the bottom of the box. These could be sitting on a table for guests to enjoy or wrapped with as a little treat!

Stay tuned to see how I use the leftover pieces to create a flat crate on a card. I’ll be posting that on Thursday!!!

Technique Tuesday – How to Use Embossing Paste!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! I have a fabulous technique to today that is so much fun! I’m going to show you how to use Embossing Paste for your cards!!! This stuff is magical, dries quick, and gives amazing texture!

Use Embossing Paste, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Look at that cool brick background?!?! I wish you could touch it as well because it feels super cool as well! Now let’s get started!

I started with a Whisper White card base! Then I took a piece of Berry Burst cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) and placed it on a piece of Grid Paper. When using the masks, it gets a little messy so I wanted to keep my work space clean! Next, I placed the brick template from the Party Pattern Decorative Masks Pack over the top. I held all of mine but if I was making multiples I would probably add a bit of tape to the top and bottom to secure it in place. Then I got out the Embossing Paste and Palette Knives. Be sure to have all of your supplies ready to go before opening up the paste and getting started. This stuff dries fast so you don’t want to leave it open long or do part of it and need to go get something in the middle of it. It’s not an instant dry but it does dry quickly. As for the tools, I don’t think I have found a favorite just yet. They all work about the same so it’s personal preference.

Just scoop some paste and smear it over the mask like buttering toast. I think this is super fun. There are different patterns you can achieve by covering it all or just swiping diagonal across, or doing just the  edge/bottom. Once you are done, pull the mask off and allow it to dry while cleaning off the mask. A simple soap and water will clean the masks off!

Wonderful Things, www.LaurasStampPad.com

By the time I was back from cleaning off the mask, it was dry. If your’s isn’t, just work on the rest of the card while is dries. For the focal point, I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in Crushed Curry Ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock. Next, I punched  it out with the Daisy Punch! I created two of these and adhered them together off set to look like a nice full flower. For the greeting, I die cut an oval with the Stitched Shapes Framelits! The greeting was stamped from the Just Add Text Stamp Set in Berry Burst Ink. I added both the greeting and flower to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wanted to make sure the adhesive stuck well on top of the brick texture. Dimensionals have give so they fall into the grooves for a secure hold. I used regular Snail Adhesive to adhere the brick piece to the card front. If it seems to have curled a lot when it was drying, a stronger adhesive like Tear And Tape or Fast Fuse might be a great option!

Technique Tuesday – 2-Step Tranquil Tulips!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share with you! Today, I am playing with the 2-Step Tranquil Tulips Hostess Stamp Set! Aren’t these flowers amazing?!?!?!

Tranquil Tulips Hostess Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t these flowers so amazing and real looking?? The best part is I got this stamp set for FREE with Hostess Benefits! The other best part is they are super simple to 2-step stamp. There is no remembering to stamp off or lining up every side and curve. It’s amazing!!!

I started with a Pool Party card base (11″ x 4-1/4″). Then I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 3-1/4″) to stamp the tulips on. I used the Tranquil Tulips Hostess Stamp Set with Berry Burst Ink and Old Olive Ink. Starting with the stems, I stamped those around the middle of my paper so that my tulips weren’t falling off the top. Next, I stamped the leaves. Then it was time for the tulips and I did the large solid image first. Next I did the more detailed smaller image right on top.

Both of these images are in full strength ink so no worries on remembering to stamp off. Since the second image is smaller, all you have to look for when stamping it is that it is close to the bottom of the solid stamped image. If it’s not, that’s okay too! The variation in color on these stamps is the texture in the stamp. How cool is that?!?! So don’t worry that your image isn’t coming out smooth or dark and solid, it’s suppose to look like this. There are 2 different sizes of flowers to play with! I love it! There are also little dot images for the center of the flower. I stamped those in Basic Gray Ink for a softer look than black.

Now that I am done with the focal point, I added it to the card base on the left side. Next I tied some Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon around the card, right over the edge of the cardstock. For the greeting, I used the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set and coordinating Pretty Label Punch. (Bundle & Save 10%) First, I stamped the decorative edge in Pool Party Ink and then the greeting in Berry Burst Ink. Next, I punched it out and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals! 🙂

I love this set so much because there are 22 images in there for just $10 in Hostess Dollars which is earned with a $150 order or party! It’s fabulous!!! Also, the ease of not having to remember to stamp off is super amazing!! Don’t forget about Bonus Bucks this month for every $50 you spend too!!! It’s a great time to order and have a party (in home, virtual, or catalog).

Technique Tuesday-Golden Happy Birthday!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Happy 4th of July!!! Today I have a fabulous technique to share with you. This golden happy birthday with roses all over is just stunning! You know how I love bling with flowers and pink!!! Amazing!

Golden Happy Birthday, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Isn’t this card just stunning with that glimmer wording?? I love it! It was fairly simple to create as well!!

I started with a Sweet Sugarplum card base. Next I layered on a piece of Berry Burst (4″ x 5-1/4″) with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Since this card didn’t have a lot of dimension, I thought I would pop up a layer! Also, Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum look amazing together! Finally for the top layer, I used a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. The first step is to die cut the greeting in Gold Glimmer Paper with the Happy Birthday Framelit. I added the greeting to the card with a Sponge and Multi Purpose Liquid Glue but the Fine Tip Glue Pen works too!

Now for the beautiful roses, I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%)! For the bigger rose, I used Sweet Sugarplum Ink and stamped off once for the solid image. I used full strength ink for the outline image. For the smaller rose, I used Berry Burst and the same technique! Be sure to fall off the cardstock and stamp all around so it looks like the pattern is continuous. I used Old Olive Ink for the leaves. The mini leaves, I stamped twice before going back to the ink to get that variation in color. Once I was done with the flowers, I added this to the card base!

Birthday Roses All Over, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So I thought I would share with you the first card I made which I stamped all over the background first. Then I placed the greeting on top and it just didn’t POP like I wanted. I tried again by adding the greeting first and stamping around the greeting and it worked out so much better! Just thought I would share my boo boo card as well so you could see it doesn’t always come out right the first time but we keep on trying! 🙂

Technique Tuesday – Creating a Drop Shadow Greeting!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You know that means I have a fabulous technique for you today and that is creating a drop shadow greeting!!! There are so many color combinations that you could do for this card. I love it!!!

Creating a Drop Shadow Greeting, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is a perfect Man Card and we all know I struggle with those since I love PINK! I am also loving this Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist color combination too! Perfect!!!

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 4-1/4″ to use for the greeting. Using the Happy Birthday Framelit, I die cut the greeting in Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist. For adhering them onto the Whisper White, there is always the Fine Tip Glue Pen! If you find that hard to use, try out this technique. I use a Silicone Craft Mat, Sponge, and Multi Purpose Liquid Glue. Just pounce in the glue a bit and then all over the die cut image. This gives the perfect amount and nice even coverage. First, I laid down the Lemon Lime Twist greeting. Second, I added the Night of Navy greeting just a smidge down and over from the other one. This gives that drop shadow look! Be sure your greeting is up high on the cardstock so that the rest of the design doesn’t cover it.

Layered Birthday, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now to assemble the card! I took a piece of Night of Navy (2″ x 4″) and ran it through the Big Shot in the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder. Next, I adhered this to the lower portion of the white piece, making sure it was the correct size for my card front. Then I placed a strip of Finely Woven Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist across the cardstock where they meet together. I added this piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals! For the mini greeting, I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%). I punched the greeting out with the Classic Label Punch and added it to the card with Mini Stampin Dimensionals! I just love it!

Technique Tuesday-Layering the Eastern Palace Suite!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Today’s technique is all about laying the Eastern Palace Suite!!! I used the Eastern Medallion Framelits, Eastern Beauty Stamp Set, and Gold Vinyl Stickers for this amazing card! Isn’t it beautiful?!?!

Layering Eastern Palace Suite, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The layers and details of this card just give such a WOW factor. I know this isn’t a card I would make every day for every occasion. It’s always fun to go above and beyond for that one special card sometimes. Let’s get started!

I started with a Tranquil Tide card base and layered on a piece of the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I took a piece of Very Vanilla (3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″) and die cut out the circle in the upper left corner. I used the small circle and the next layer up circle from the Eastern Medallion Framelits. There are lots of different cut out creations you can make. Then I stamped the circle from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%) in Fresh Fig Ink. Now it’s time to put on the Gold Vinyl Sticker. The sticker will fall off on the left side and maybe the top depending on where the die cuts were placed. It’s important to do these layers in this order because otherwise this happens…..

A Note for You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Notice how the stamped circle is messy and missing a portion on the left hand side, that’s because I stamped after the sticker. The circle fits like just perfectly or doesn’t fit just perfectly so stamping afterwards is not a good deal. Some of the stamped image went onto the sticker and then just smeared off. By stamping first, it is underneath the sticker and peaks through perfectly no matter what! I stamped the greeting from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set after adding the sticker so I knew it would be placed at the edge of the image!

Now it is time to assemble! I layered the stamped vanilla piece onto a piece of Tranquil Tide (3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″) flush with the upper left corner with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The dimensionals give that nice little peekaboo for the die cut potion. Next, I layered this onto the card base, again placing it flush with the upper left corner. To finish off the card, I tied some Vanilla Baker’s Twine around the card and added 2 of the Mini Tassels.

Gold Vinyl Inside, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Since I didn’t want to waste that little piece of Gold Vinyl Sticker that I trimmed off. I placed it on the inside of the card for a little decoration piece! I love it!

Technique Tuesday – Creating an Open Shutter Card!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Today’s amazing technique is all about creating an open shutter card. The greeting just pop out behind the camera shutter look as you open it up! Check it out below and be sure to watch the Video Tutorial to see in all in action!!Creating Open Shutter Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Okay so you thought I would show the amazing WOW factor in this first picture, huh? Did you scroll down and check it out??? That’s okay I would have too! let’s get started on this beauty! I got the idea for this card from Frenchie Martin who is amazing! Thank you for this great card idea!

I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored  it at 2-1/8″ x 6-3/8″ for the gate fold! For the front panels, I cut 2 piece of Night of Navy measuring 5-1/4″ x 1-7/8″. Then I layered on some of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper measuring 5″ x 1-5/8″. The belly band  that wraps around the card is Night of Navy measuring 1″ x 11″. I didn’t actually score it but instead just wrapped it around the card and pressed on the edges. Then I unwrapped it and used a Bone Folder on the creases. This works best I think because otherwise it seems mine is too tight or too loose. Next, I used Tear And Tape to secure the belly band because it’s a nice strong adhesive. I cut the end into banner tips for a little fun texture! Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3/4″ x 4″) and stamped the greeting from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set. I added the banner tips  on the right and secured it to the belly band, cutting off any extra on the left hand side.

Half Open Shutter Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now it’s time for the amazing inside of the card – the Open Shutter part! I cut 2 pieces of Daffodil Delight cardstock measuring 4″ x 3-1/2″ and scoring 1/2″ in along the 4″ side. This creates the little tab to adhere the shutter pieces. On the opposite side of the score line, measuring half way up (half of 3-1/2″ is 1-3/4″) put a dot with a pen. Then measuring 2″ in, place another dot. This is so you know how far in to cut your banner tips. I cut from the corner to that 2″ in dot. After doing one of them, I just placed  it over the other one as a template. The less measuring the better, right? 🙂 Now the shutter pieces are ready!

Open Shutter Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Isn’t it beautiful?!?!?! Now that we created the shutter pieces, it’s time to do that middle piece. I took a piece of Whisper White (3″ x 5-1/2″) and layered on some Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″) before die cutting a 2-1/2″ circle out of it. I used the Layering Circles Framelits but you could use a punch too! Then I added Stampin’ Dimensionals along the very top and very bottom of the piece and placed it in the center of the card. The dimensionals lift up this piece so the shutter can slide underneath! Now for adding the shutter pieces, I put Tear And Tape all along the 1/2″ tab, slide the left on under the daisy piece. With it lined up flush with the score line/fold in the card and centered up and down, I closed the left panel of the card. This will then grab onto that adhesive and secure the left shutter. For the right side, I did the same thing but there are a few tips.

Be sure that your banner tips are both under the left side banner tips. They can’t be one up/one down or it won’t close correctly. Another tip is to be sure that the banner tips aren’t peaking out on the left side because it is uneven. They should be hiding perfectly below the left side.

Now that the shutter is complete, I opened up the card completely and stamped the greeting! I used the coordinating greeting from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in the center! It is best to stamp this after creating the shutter so that you are sure it will fit and peak out in the right spot.

Tempting Techniques – Color Block Card Making!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means…..I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! This color block card is a super fun and a great style for lots of different card types!

Color Block Card Making, www.LaurasStampPad.com

How fabulous is this card?!?! I just love the color combination and how simple it is. You can adapt this card style to any stamp set. I simply measured the greeting and lawn chair and that’s how I determined the size of the rectangles! Simple! Let’s get started on the dimensions for this one!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next I cut some Whisper White for both the greeting (3″ x 2″) and the chair (2″ x 2-1/4″)! For the chair from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, I used Chocolate Chip Ink for the base and Berry Burst for the fabric. Since this is a Photopolymer Stamp Set, it was easy to line up the chair. There are notches in the chair as well that help! 🙂 For the greeting, I stamped it in Old Olive Ink!

Now it is time to layer and assemble the card! I layered the chair onto Old Olive (2-1/4″ x 2-1/2″) and the greeting onto Berry Burst (3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″). Next I took a piece of Old Olive Color Theory Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″) and wrapped some ribbon around it and into a knot. I used the New Berry Burst Finely Woven Ribbon which I love because it’s not bulky! It’s perfect! I layered this onto the card base and then added the greeting with Snail and the chair with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

I’m loving this summery card look and the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set! There is just so many amazing images and greetings. You can check out another sample here!

Technique Tuesday-Creating a Perfect Beach Scene!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday…..but feels like Monday! Today I’m sharing with you this amazing technique of creating a perfect beach scene! I am using the NEW Colorful Seasons Bundle from the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog which comes out on Thursday!!!!! Woot Woot! I so can’t wait!!!

Creating a Perfect Beach Scene, www.LaurasStampPad.com

How amazing is this card?!?!?! I just love it for that amazing greeting, the calming blues, and the relaxing chairs. Can you feel the sun on your face or cool ocean breeze just looking at this card? I think I can! Let’s get started on how I created it!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I layered a piece of the ombre Dapper Denim from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack onto some Dapper Denim cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″). Then I stamped the greeting, Just Breath from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set in Dapper Denim. That greeting is just amazing. I added this to the card from with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little pop!

Creating Sand, www.Laurasstamppad.com

Now for creating a perfect beach scene, it’s time to make the sand. I took a piece of Crumb Cake (2″ x 5-1/8″) and placed it in a box to spritz. Spritzing can be messy so I use a box on it’s side to spritz into. I place the cardstock laying down flat (on the side of the box since it’s sideways). Using a Spritzer with alcohol and Chocolate Chip Re-Inker, I spritzed the bottom of the box, allowing the spray of it to drop down onto the Crumb Cake. This way the cardstock just has little dots of ink all over and not a direct splatter of ink. Also, another BIG TIP is be sure to use an alcohol of 70 proof or less. If it is higher, it will start to break down the plastic in the spritzer and it will clog.

After spritzing, I ripped the Crumb Cake in half and layered it together on the bottom of the card front. Those amazing adirondack chairs are from the coordinating Seasonal Layers Framelit. I die cut them in Whisper White and added them to the card front with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I put the adhesive on the bottom rectangle piece as well as the arms of the chair. This allows the top of the chair to pop out a bit since it isn’t secured down and it looks more 3D! I just love it!!!

Just Breathe, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here is another version of the same card but fewer layers. This is the simple version and the stepped up version is at the top! For this card, I used a Soft Sky card base and stamped directly onto it. Then I added the sand and chairs below. Which card do you prefer – the simple or stepped up?

If you would like to see it all 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!!!

Get ready for the NEW catalog on June 1st! It’s so fabulous!!!!

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!
