Tin Tile Embossing Folder!!!

Posted on

Oh my goodness, my favorite product by far in the Holiday Mini Catalog is the Tin Tile Embossing Folder. It is just stunning on a project and looks amazing with foils!

Tin Tile Embossing Folder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The intricate details in the folder are just amazing! I love all the texture and the elegant look! To me, this folder was meant to be for foil papers!!! It’s just stunning! As you can see I used different foils in the photo above. I even used this new Galvanized Metallic Paper!!! It’s like the perfect brushed silver look.

Then I had some fun adding some black ink with a Sponge Dauber for a more rustic look. I really like the look on some of the foils and not so much on others.

Galvanized Metallic, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Galvanized Metallic looks super cool since it has that rustic look and a less shine and glitz.

Silver & Gold, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I kinda love this technique a bit! Of course some of them are darker and others are lighter. I simply rubbed some black on very quickly. I could always go back and add more or keep it light and dark for a more rustic look! Which one is your favorite?? Let me know in the comments below!

Check back tomorrow to see a sample using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder!!! Don’t have this folder in your collection yet, click the photo below to get it!!

Technique Tuesday – Duplicate-able Holiday Card!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique for you today! This one is a super easy duplicate-able holiday card. I know this time of the year can be super crazy but we still want to send out a card made with love. Also, there is nothing like a little stamping therapy! 🙂

Duplicate-able Holiday Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This simple yet fabulous card with a little bit of bling is perfect for the Holiday Season! The other bonus to this card is that if you get them done early or late, it still applies because it says season. 🙂 Right?!?!?!

I started with the Suite Seasons Designer Washi Tape which has Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Real Red in it. Since Garden Green can be used with both reds, I used that as my card base. Then for the middle layer which is 4″ x 5-1/4″, I used Real Red or Cherry Cobbler based on which washi tape I used.

Filled with Happiness, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Whisper White layer measures 3-3/4″ x 5″. I added the Suite Season Designer Washi Tape on each of the pieces. I like to start in the middle and work my way out. This seems to work best for spacing. Typically I like to go at a bit of a diagonal with the washi tape as well. There is no way I am going to get it perfectly straight so why not just angle it on purpose!

Suite Season Designer Washi Tape, www.LaurasStampPad.com

There are lots of different color combinations that you can create with the 5 rolls of washit tape in this pack. Three of the rolls have a foil shine in them as well – copper, silver, and gold! I love the little bit of bling!

Holly, Jolly, and Bright, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I used the Pretty Label Punch and 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. The greetings are from the Joyous Noel Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog but you could use whatever greeting will fit in the punch! All of the greetings were stamped in Garden Green Ink. This way I could use them on both the red and cherry cards. I layered the punched pieces together and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture.

Washi Tape Holiday Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

To finish off the cards, I added a few Rhinestones for some bling. Also, I used some of the Santa’s Workshop Enamel Shapes from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I was able to create a lot of cards in no time at all and with minimal supplies. I love that I could get different looks but not have to use tons of different products. This is perfect for making multiples. How many Christmas or Holiday cards do you make each year? Let me know in the comments below!

Technique Tuesday – Stamping a Perfect Row!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today!!! I am stamping a perfect row of vases today!!! No worries or panic that you will get them all straight or you have nailed it and now for the final vase and…..boo you messed up. The Stamparatus makes it quick and easy!

Stamping a Perfect Row, www.LaurasStampPad.com

 

I love the colors in this card. They are so bright and cheery and go so well together – Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, and Crushed Curry! First I’m going to start with a little set-up tutorial for the Stamparatus before getting into the full details of this card.

First, I lined up all three vase outlines on my cardstock spaced out and what seemed lined up straight. Then I shut the Stamparatus plate to pick up each of these vases. Using the grid lines on the clear plate, I made sure the vases were in fact straight and then I stamped a practice round onto scrap paper to verify. Next, I took the solid vases and placed them on the scrap stamp piece and then shut the other plate. Now I have my outlines on one plate and the solids on the other plate. When I decided to do the vases in different colors, I realized I couldn’t have them all on the same plate because it was difficult to get color on that middle vase without making a mess on the other 2. So I took the middle vase out and stamped that one by hand. Then I inked the other 2 vases with their colors and stamped them with the Stamparatus.

Keeping the vases in place, I flipped both Stamparatus plates over and stuck the scallop trim on one and the greeting on the other. Again I used a scrap piece of paper till I got it lined up correct. For the scallops, I placed the paper down, stamped, flipped the paper around, and stamped again. This gave me that top and bottom border.

Now for the card details. I started with a Coastal Cabana card base. Next, I worked on each of the focal points starting with the vases. Using a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 3″, I placed it in my Stamparatus and stamped all 3 of the vase outlines from the Varied Vases Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. Then I stamped the solid vases in Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, and Melon Mambo Ink. Next, I stamped the flowers in Memento Black and colored them in with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blends.

Varied Vases, www.LaurasStampPad.com

To add a little more fun to this piece, I rounded 2 opposing corners with the Detailed Trio Punch and tied some Black Baker’s Twine around the left end. After tying the twine, I placed Stampin Dimensionals over it to secure it in place.

Next up is the greeting which was stamped on a 1″ strip. After stamping it in Coastal Cabana and Memento Black, I placed it on the card front and trimmed off the extra. This way I didn’t have to use such a small piece for stamping. Then I added the 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Garden Impressions Designer Paper along the left edge. Finally, I added those fabulous vases with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture.

Happy September!!!!

Posted on

It’s Tuesday and it’s September! Is anyone else like mind blown about all of this?? It feels like Monday. I don’t want to give in that it’s September and summer is ending but I guess I will embrace it. Happy September!!!

Happy September, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here I’m going to ease into the Holiday Mini Catalog and season with the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper. This paper has that rustic, cozy feel in my opinion. Those plaids make me think of a warm flannel blanket and I love to snuggling with a blanket on any day. I love the white woodgrain looks because I’m not a fan of brown even if it is woodgrain. 🙂 Anyone else with me on that one? Do you like a white wash or white trim verses a wood trim? Let me know in the comments below!

The start patterns in this pack are fabulous too because I feel like those are versatile for any style of card throughout the year. The stripes are that way too! To me a good pack of paper has lots of versatile looks – ones for a specific occasion as well as basics. This one totally does.

Tomorrow, the Holiday Mini Catalog officially comes out and we can all start ordering these amazing goodies. I have been posting the Designer Series Paper Packs from the catalog on my YouTube Channel. This way you can see the full sheets and how amazing they truly are. Today, I’m sharing the Festive Farmhouse pack.

Holiday Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Reveals!!!

Posted on

Hello, stampers!!! Today is the start of my Holiday Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Reveals!!! I will be posting videos showing off the different paper packs from the Holiday Mini Catalog on my YouTube Channel. This is a great way for me to show off the full piece of paper so you can see just how fabulous each of these sheets are. The little swatch in the catalog sometimes just doesn’t show it all!

Holiday Mini Catalog Designer Series Paper Reveals, www.LaurasStampPad.com

 

I’m starting off the series with this Halloween themed paper. Some of you may know, I’m not a big Halloween fan. I know….gasp! It seems you are either a HUGE fan or you aren’t a fan at all. I’m the second one. Since I am not a big fan but still like to make treats for my nieces and nephews, I got just this pack of Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper and then I’ll use some greetings from a set that I have like Itty Bitty Greetings or a Paper Pumpkin Set.

I really like this paper because there are only a few sheets that are super Halloween-y. The frogs I think would make a super cute kid card. Pumpkins are great for Fall cards. Those stars on the far left look very fun for a wizard or starry night card. Polka dots and stripes are perfect for any occasion. When the paper is super versatile like this, I am more drawn to buying it because then I know I can use it for multiple card styles.

The Holiday Mini Catalog is available to order from starting on September 5th so get those wish lists started! Also, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel as I will be posting more of the Designer Series Paper Packs on there over the next week or so.

You Are My Sunshine!!!

Posted on

You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine! Are you singing it too or is that just me? This greeting is perfect for this beautiful butterfly card! It is so bright and cheerful!

You Are My Sunshine, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Blue and yellow go so well together, don’t you think?? I love these colors – Pacific Point and Pineapple Punch!!!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I took a piece of Pacific  Point (4″ x 5-1/4″) and embossed the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Framelits. This is a framelit that I used to emboss with the Embossing Mat. Check out this post and this post on how to emboss with framelits. Also, I die cut a full butterfly in Pineapple Punch. Don’t layer this onto your card front just yet because we need to do that greeting and wrap the ribbon around to the back.

Layered Punches, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now for the greeting, I used a few different punches. First, I punched out a white label with the Pretty Label Punch. Next, I punched out a 1-1/2″ Circle Punch in Pacific Point. Then I stamped the greeting from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set in Pineapple Punch and punched it out with the 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. For the layering, I added them all together with regular Snail Adhesive. For those little ribbon slider holes, I used the Detailed Trio Punch. In order to line it up in the correct spot, I punched out a scrap one, placed it in the desired spot and pressed with my scissors to make a mark. Then I slid it into the Detailed Trio Punch and punched the hole. I did that on both sides and slid the ribbon through securing it on the back with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added this to the bottom of the embossed Pacific Point piece. Wrap the ends of the ribbon to the back and add this piece to the card front!

Impressed Butterfly, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now it is time to finish off with that die cut butterfly. I suggest putting this on last so that you don’t put it too low and in the way of your greeting. Using Mini Glue Dots, I adhered it and then added a few Rhinestones down the center for some bling! I love it! This is a great card to have on hand to brighten someone’s day.

Technique Tuesday – Creating 2 Cards with 1 Die!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share!!! Creating 2 Cards with 1 Die is the technique!!!! Today, I’m sharing one of the cards but be sure to come back tomorrow to see the other one!!! I love this because we all know time is precious so getting 2 pieces with one crank through the Big Shot is fabulous!!!

Creating 2 Cards with 1 Die, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is super simple to create but has that amazing WOW factor with the embossed floral image. I used the Springtime Impressions Dies for that image. Yes, I used a framelit to emboss! How cool is that???? With the Big Shot Embossing Mats, you can now get more use out of your framelits because now you can emboss with them as well. WOWZA!!!! Then, there is also the creating 2 cards with 1 die part for this card. I love it!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I layered on a piece of Highland Heather measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then, I took a piece of Gorgeous Grape and ran it through the Big Shot with the Embossing Mat and the Springtime Impressions Die.

Embossing with Dies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here are the layers for embossing with a framelit: Big Shot Platform (no tabs), White Impressions Pad, Blue Silicone Mat, Cardstock, Die with the blade facing the cardstock, and then a clear Big Shot Cutting Pad. I have found that using a newer pad works best because it doesn’t have the cutting groves in it and it isn’t curled. It’s always good to have a nice flat one available for embossing!!!

Now I have that fabulous focal point to adhere to the front of my card! Next, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Stitched Seasons Framelits. I used the label for this card and saved the negative (outside piece) for the card I’m showing off tomorrow! Two fabulous card pieces with just 1 crank through the Big Shot and 1 die. The Stitched Seasons Framelits are super fabulous for that reason! Remember you can only get them this month! Click the photo below to order yours today!

Kindness Changes Everything, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Using the greeting from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set (coordinates and Bundle & Save 10% with the Springtime Impressions Framelits), I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and finished off the card with Rhinestones. Simple and yet fabulous with that beautiful floral embossing. I love it!!!

To purchase any of the items used, click the photos below! Don’t forget the Stitched Seasons Framelits are available this month only!
