This one is my favorite! I love the soft subtle colors because that makes it perfect for a baby boy or girl! Heck, it just says tiny miracles so that could be a new puppy, kitten, or even a small step in the right direction in life!

This one is my second favorite card! I just love color combination. That linen thread with the large bow behind the greeting is kind of cool. That’s how the instructions said to do it and I like it! Another fabulous way to add ribbon to cards!

My heart can't stop smiling, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love this greeting so much! It is just the cutest greeting ever and works for so many occasions! The simple blue with that hint of foil is just perfect!

Three Cheers for You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The final card in the Three Cheers For You Card Kit has that exact greeting! This was the first card I made like this and the rest of them I added more Linen Thread. I felt it needed more foofoo and texture and this one looked too simple! That’s the awesome thing about these kits is that there is plenty of supplies and you don’t have to follow the directions!

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!

Flying Ladybug, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Pearlized Doilies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Cute Ladybugs, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Try Out Double Stamping!

Posted on

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!!!

Double Stamping, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Tags In Bloom, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!!! 🙂

Coloring Foil Paper!!!

Posted on

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!!!!

Coloring Foil Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Sponge Daubers vs Stampin' Blends, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Flowering Foil Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

I'm here for you, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!!!

Gangs All Meer, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Little Lizard, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Berry Sweet & Simple!!!

Posted on

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!!!

Berry Sweet & Simple, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Strawberry, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Let the Paper Do It!!!

Posted on

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!!!

Let the Paper Do It, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!!!

Meerkat Silhouette Sunset Card!!!

Posted on

The cuteness factor: HIGH! The amazing view factor: HIGH! Fun technique factor: HIGH! This Meerkat Silhouette Sunset card is just adorable and I’m going to share with you how to make it!!!

Meerkat Silhouette Sunset Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Mango Melody card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the lizard in the corner and added it to the card front. I just had to add him to the card because he’s adorable!

Sunset, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the meerkats on there in Memento Black Ink. Then using the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored them all in. Then I placed a 1-1/2″ scrap circle over the center of the card. It should cover up some of the meerkats. Starting with Mango Melody, I sponged the color around the circle making sure it didn’t move. Next, I took a Daffodil Delight Sponge Dauber and colored the rest of the way out, making sure to blend the colors together. Be sure to go over the meerkats so the color gets everywhere. Now you have that fabulous sunset and silhouette look.

In order to make the meerkats not look like they were floating, I took a scrap piece of Basic Black and ripped it along the top. Then I placed this under the meerkats and trimmed off the excess. This layer was added to a Basic Black piece of cardstock before adding it to the card front. This makes the image pop more!!

Happy Birthday To A Stand-Up Friend, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it in Mango Melody Ink. All of these images are from the Sale-A-Bration Gangs All Meer Stamp Set. Woot Woot for free stamps! Using the Label Me Lovely Punch, I layered these images today. I just trimmed off pieces of the punched image to get a different look. Check out this video on that! I’m still debating on where I want to add a few rhinestones either above the lizard or on either sides of the greeting. The yellow/orange ones in the Holiday Basics Rhinestone Pack would work perfectly!

Rain or Shine!!!

Posted on

Rain of Shine….you are always on my mind! How adorable is that greeting!?!? Especially this time of year when it seems to be raining all the time. I still love Spring though!!!

Rain or Shine, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This adorable card uses the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper which is from the Sale-A-Bration Coordination Release. This paper will no longer be available after March 31st so get it before it’s gone!

First, I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I layered on a piece of Balmy Blue Cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Then I took the umbrella piece of designer paper and cut some pieces into 3-3/4″ x 2″ and others into 3-3/4″ x 3″. One side of the paper is raindrops and the other is the umbrellas. I did the rain on top and the umbrellas on the bottom.

Using the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon, I added a bit of adhesive in the middle and pressed the ribbon into it. The ends are not secured down but that adds some texture to the card! For the greeting, I stamped it in Calypso Coral Ink onto Whisper White. The greeting is from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set. Using the Label Me Fancy Punch, I punched out the greeting and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

This quick and simple rain or shine card is easy to whip up on a rainy day. Send out a few each week to a friend or family member that you are thinking of. It will be sure to brighten their day! See the complete list of supplies below!
