Summer Flowers!!!

Posted on

I’m going to hold onto Summer as long as I can. Last week, Fall tried to creep in with it’s 50/60’s over night though. Not today, Fall! Today, I’m sharing some summer flowers because they brighten my day!!!

You all know how much I love flowers and the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set is so up my alley! Add in that cute mason jar and I’m hooked. Plus the jar is a punch so it’s quick and simple!

I started with a Misty Moonlight card base. Next, I added a strip of Just Jade that I embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder. This gives the perfect amount of texture and I love it! Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3″ x 4-1/4″ for the focal point. You can use any of the flowers in the set which makes this card even more versatile. Be sure to stamp the flowers close to the top of the cardstock so there is plenty of room for the jar below. I used Memento Black Ink to stamp the flowers and then the stems below it. The stems don’t have to match up exactly with the flowers since the jar covers up the overlap part.

Now it’s time to color! Again with the soft blues and greens in the base, you can really color the flowers any color you wish! I went with Stampin’ Blends – Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray, Daffodil Delight, and Just Jade. Be sure to color the stems as well!

Now for that fun jar, stamp the vellum cardstock with the jar and let it dry completely before you punch it out. Since vellum is a slick surface, it can take a bit longer to dry than regular cardstock. Place the jar over the flowers to see exactly where you need to stamp your water then scoot it over to the side out of the way but still as a guide. I stamped my water in Misty Moonlight stamped off once for a lighter look! After stamping it down, I added the jar over the top with Mini Glue Dots. The baker’s twine was actually added before I adhered down the jar but you can always adhere the bottom portion down first. This will help it hold still for you a little more.

I hope you all enjoyed this Summer Flowers card as much as I did! If you want to recreate it, check out the supplies below. For more inspiration using the Jar of Flowers, click here and here!

Playful Pets!!!

Posted on

I have seen so many projects done with the Playful Pets Suite that I knew I had to get in on the fun. There are many time a friend loses a pet or gets a pet that I think to send a card for but I don’t always have the supplies. Since I don’t think I will use this all the time, I got just the designer paper to start with!

Playful Pets, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am cat person so of course I am loving the kitty prints the most in this pack. Also, the paw prints and bowls and stuff are really cute. I feel like unless you know the breed of the dog, it could be odd to send a card with a dog on it but not the correct one. Am I wrong? Maybe dog people wouldn’t care. I feel like while there technically are different breeds of cats, to me they are all just cats! 🙂 Let me know your favorite in the comment below – dogs or cats???

It’s a new month so that means it’s time for a NEW Free Stamp Set of the Month!!!! This month it is…….drum roll……..Queen Anne’s Lace!

Queen Anne's Lace, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I like to think that I’m the Queen….as we all should! 🙂 This was also a suggestion from one of my customers so it was perfect. If you ever have a suggestion for the Free Stamp Set of the Month, send it my way. I’m always open for suggestions as some months I totally have it picked and other months I am clueless!

Flowers and a good scroll-y font are totally my jam so this one was a no-brainer. My favorite greeting in this whole set is the “I know you have the strength to get through this”. Hearing that for someone else is just what we need sometimes!

Start shopping now and earn the Queen Anne’s Lace set for FREE!!! Also, let me know what you think of the NEW Stampin’ Up website! Due to the new website, some of my link now take you to the general site and not to the specific item like before. I apologize for that but it would be crazy to go back through my hundreds of posts and fix all of the links!

Gorgeous Gilded Autumn!!!

Posted on

I’m not a huge fan of Fall but I think that’s only because it means winter is coming. I hate winter. Another option could be that I’m not really a earthly tones…browns, oranges type of girl. I prefer blacks and grays and bright colors! UNTIL NOW……Stampin’ Up released this Gilded Autumn Designer Paper and I love it so much!!!

Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I have already been playing with this paper and I can’t get enough of it. It is so pretty. There are punches that coordinate with the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set as well as this paper. No need to fussy cutting the images or coloring the stamped images if that’s not your thing. Of course, if you enjoy that, go for it! The foil patterns are just stunning and add that little pop of shine. I just may be looking forward to Fall this year!!!

A New Take…

Posted on

So I had some leftover pre-cut cards that I played with the other day! I decided not to create the same exact card as the original. You can check that out here! Here is a new take on the card using different stamps!

A New Take on an Old Look, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the same Seaside Spray card base. Then some of the cards used both the Whisper White and Pacific Point cardstock and some only used one. For ink colors, I played with Basic Gray, Pacific Point, and Seaside Spray! Some of the flowers I even colored in with Stampin’ Blends to add a pop of color! Each card looks totally different and I really like it. The stamp set that I used was the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set! It was perfect for all of the different looks!

Different Shades of Blue Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here I stamped the left flower in Seaside Spray and then colored it in. It came out looking super soft! The middle flower was stamped in Basic Gray and then colors in with Seaside Spray and it has a much bolder look. The flower on the right is stamped in Pacific Point and colored in with Seaside Spray. I think that one is my favorite. Which one is your favorite??? Let me know in the comment below!

Check out all of the supplies listed below. If you want to see me create these cards, I did it on a Facebook Live a few weeks ago. Check it out here!!!

Plaid Tidings Paper!!!

Posted on

The August to December Mini Catalog begins on August 4th and I just can’t wait any longer to share with you the amazing products!!! Today, I’m showing off the Plaid Tidings Paper because it is one of my favorites!!!

Plaid Tidings Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I’m from a small town and my family farms! Plaid button down shirts are a major staple for most of the men in my family. When I first saw this paper, I pictured my Dad having a shirt in many of these color combinations. It really made me smile and warmed my heart. I’ll have to confirm with my Mom but I think he had shirt similar to the upper left (pink/yellow/blue) back when they were dating. Any of the other blue and green designs are for sure prints that he currently wears. I just love it all!

Plaid is perfect for the Fall and Winter season because of it’s soft, warm feeling. It also works great for many occasions! I can see using this paper for a long time and that makes me excited!!! The more versatile the paper is, the more I know I can use every sheet!!

July 2020 Paper Pumpkin!!!

Posted on

The July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit turned out to be even better than I expected. I was excited about the colors and the little bags but check this out!!!

July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

It was so hard to pick my favorite one to show off first. I went with this one because I LOVE that greeting. I added the Ferris Wheel and rides to the bottom with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it depth and look more real. Boy does it ever!!! Since I did that, I adhered the greeting flat. Simple and so much fun!!!

Lightening Bugs and Summertime, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This one would be my second favorite I think! That greeting is super fabulous but I can’t stop singing the song. I did my cards a bit different (on accident) and have fireworks in the background rather than a glow for the lightening bugs! Those vellum jars with gold foil trim are amazing though!

Chinese Lanterns, www.LaurasStampPad.com

So I did the first card on the left and wasn’t a fan of leaving the ribbon/string from the lanterns just hanging off. Then I decided to adhere the strings to the back of the card and add it to a card base to hide that. I am really LOVING how that turned out. The Whisper White card base really makes the card POP and I love it!!!

There are so many extras from this kit I decided to make a few more with some Whisper White card bases and Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper. LOVE IT!!! This also only used a small amount of the leftovers. I could probably make 20 more.

Fireworks & Lanterns at Summertime, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These bags are so stinking cute. So, I decided to make a few as treat bags by stamping the fireworks on the front and adding a piece of cardstock to the inside to pop through! I played with Night of Navy, Real Red, and Silver Foil Paper. I LOVE THEM!!! The kit came with more but I am saving some of the bags to use with a light in them. So many ideas and possibilities.

I hope you enjoyed the July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit! Be sure to sign up for the August Paper Pumpkin which is medals, trophies, masculine, and everyday heros!!! I can’t wait to see it! Click here to sign up and enjoy the fun for a month or 2 months or however long you want.
