That means you and a few friends can put your orders together or you can order it yourself. If you would like to gather orders with friends, I can open a Hostess Code for you to make it easy and all orders will be shipped directly to the person! 🙂
Is this not the cutest card ever?!?!? Those ladybugs are adorable and super fun to stamp and color. There is also coordinating dies to have them cut out so you can pop them up too!
I used a Real Red card base and layered on a piece of Basic Black. The black is embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder! Next, I took a strip of Whisper White measuring 1-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped the greeting in the center. Before adding it to the card front, I added cut pieces of Pearlized Doilies to either side!
Then I stamped the ladybugs on Whisper White and die cut them out. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored the bugs! I went with Dark Real Red and Dark Poppy Parade because I wanted a bit of variation in color. The bellies were colored with Dark Smoky Slate. Next, I added the ladybugs to the card…with Stampin’ Dimensionals of course. To finish it off, I added some Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the line of little ladybugs which are just the cutest ever. I colored them the same! This card turned out so precious and I love it! Be sure to get this set before it is gone!
You all know how much I love flowers so the more the better, right?!? Check out this fun double stamping technique to have more flowers on your card!!!
I started with a Pretty Peacock card base and layered on another piece that was embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. This adds subtle texture to the card. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3″ x 3-1/2″. This is the piece I am going to double stamp on with the Tags In Bloom Stamp Set! Be sure to stamp with the label centered and the flowers in the upper left corner. Then flip the piece around and line up the label to stamp again for flowers on the other side. Photopolymer stamps makes this super easy!
I colored in the flowers with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends! Then for the greeting, I used the stamps from the Tags In Bloom Set and punched it out with the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch. I added it to the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a fabulous layered look! Next, I layered it onto some Daffodil Delight and added it to the card front. I went for an off set look just to go with someone different!
For the inside of the card, I added some flowers and another greeting from the Tags In Bloom Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st! This set is super fun and fabulous so I highly recommend it!!! 🙂

It’s Wednesday! I just thought I would say that because in this crazy time we are in, I feel like I never know what day it is! 🙂 Today, I’m sharing this honey bee perfection card!
This Sale-A-Bration designer paper is actually sold out already so you can’t redeem it for FREE! That also means that lots of you out there have it so let’s create with it! Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st so earn, earn, earn NOW!
For this card, I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I layered some of the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper onto a piece of Basic Black (4″ x 5-1/4″). The designer paper measures 3-3/4″ x 2 and 3-3/4″ x 3″. You can use any side and pattern!!! Then I tied some Crushed Curry Seam Binding around at the cardstock at the crease between the papers!
For the greeting, I layered Circle Punches or you could use Layering Circles Framelits! The greeting is from the Little Ladybug Stamp Set. This one will also no longer be available after March 31st!
This quick and simple honey bee perfection card is fun to make but also the same card concept can be used for any designer paper! Try it out!
Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! I’m coloring foil paper to really make this amazing Flowering Foil Designer Paper shine!!!!
I just love how this card turned out! It’s so pretty and that color combination is fabulous – Highland Heather and Mint Macaron!
There are different ways to color the Flowering Foil Paper but you can also leave it as is with the white and foils! I colored with both sponge daubers and Stampin’ Blends. I prefer the Stampin’ Blends because I really like the clean look!
The piece on the right was done with all Sponge Daubers. The flower (Highland Heather) was really easy to do. The leaves (Mint Macaron) got a bit trickier as they come to a point and Sponge Daubers don’t have as precise of a point. Then when it came to doing those little buds (Calypso Coral) it got really messy. In order to make it look less messy, I filled in around the flowers with some Pool Party. It’s not horrible but not clean looking either. For the one on the left, I used Sponge Daubers for flowers and leaves and then Stampin’ Blends for the buds. I loved how that looked so then I did the 3rd one with all Stampin’ Blends and that’s the one I used on my card!
After coloring it, I layered it onto Highland Heather and then onto the Mint Macaron card base! I used the Tags in Bloom Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and Label Me Fancy Punch for the greeting! It’s perfect for any occasion! Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends a week from today!!! Also, my Free Stamp Set of the Month for this month is Full of Happiness. You will get this set for free when you order $75 or more before tax and shipping!

Happy Monday!!! This card may not be practicing social distancing but always know I’m here for you!!! Now is the best time to send happy mail to friends and family to stay connected and make someone’s day!!!
The Gangs All Meer is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that you can earn for Free with a $50 order. This set is just adorable with the little meerkats and lizard. I love it!
I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I took a piece of Seaside Spray and embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 3″ x 3-3/4″ and stamped the meerkats up top and the greeting down low in Soft Suede Ink. Using the Soft Suede Light Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored in the meerkats. They are just so adorable!!!
Next, I layered this piece onto some Crumb Cake. Using the Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon, I added some across to separate the greeting and the focal image. This also gives a little bit of texture. Then I added this piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a few Seaside Spray Faceted Dots!
On the inside, I added a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Down in the corner, I stamped the little lizard in Soft Suede Ink. Using Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow, I colored him in. For the “All of Us” greeting, I actually stamped that and masked the “for”. I wanted it to read that we are all here for you….all of us!
Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends next Tuesday! Now is the time to stock up on your supplies so you can earn FREE stuff too. All of the products used on this We’re Here For You card are listed below! Also, our kits are awesome to get for yourself or mail to a friend for fun project to pass the time and also happy mail to send out! Click here to see all of the kits!
This card style is perfect for any occasion! The basic colors make it easy to swap a color in or out for your liking. It’s just so berry sweet and simple!!!
I am just loving this layout and how interchangeable it is!! I used the Witty-cisms Stamp Set which has lots of greeting/image variety!
For the card base, I used Smoky Slate cardstock. Next, I took 3 strips of scrap paper in Basic Black (1″), Whisper White (1″), and Silver Glimmer Paper (3/4″) and punched them with the Banner Triple Punch. This is a great way to use up scraps. Also, you can snip off the length you need, punch it again and keep going to make lots of this card style.
For the focal point, I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for those adorable scallop stitched rectangles. You can use whichever size fits your image. I went with Real Red and Whisper White for this one to match the berry. I stamped the image from Witty-cisms in Memento Black Ink and then colors it with Stampin’ Blends. Then I layered these together and then added them to the card front over the ends of the banner strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals! This gives a smooth look but also some texture to the card!
For the inside of the card, I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to color just the strawberry image. Then I stamped it in the corner of a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) for the inside of the card!

Stampin’ Up makes some amazing gorgeous designer paper. Sometimes the hardest part is cutting it up or deciding which side to use. Push past that and let the paper do all the hard work! Just add the paper and embellish!!!
Look at this beautiful card using the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper. The poppies do all of the hard work and I just added some ribbon and a greeting! It’s that simple!
I started with a Rich Razzleberry card base. Next, I layered a piece of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″). Before adding these layers to the card front, I tied some Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding around it. I just did a knot but you could always tie a bow! I recommend double knotting it before creating the bow so that it’s not a secure/tight around the cardstock!
For the greeting, I die cut out the coral decorative circle from the Painted Labels Dies. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from the Here’s A Card Stamp Set. I punched it out with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch! The white is layered onto the coral with Snail Adhesive but then I added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture!
Do you like using Designer Paper on every card? I feel like I always start with that and need some sort of pattern but technically stamps, ink, and paper makes a beautiful card too….like this card! Remember if you are looking for a quick and simple card, just let the paper do it! Let me know you favorite in the comments below!!!
