Creating An Easel Card!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!!! I have a fabulous technique to share with you all today!!! Woot Woot! I’m creating an easel card today that is perfect for a Wedding or Anniversary. You could always change up the colors and sentiment for any occasion though!

Creating An Easel Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I got the idea for this card from the fabulous stamper, Kim Peck at a recent virtual Stamping Event! I decided to change up the colors and the designer paper for a new look!

Pop Up Easel Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is super simple to create! It uses very minimal supplies actually! Any time you have leftover scraps of designer series paper, this is the perfect card to make. Add a little stamping and some embellishments to hold the easel up and you are golden! The best part is that it still folds up nice and perfectly for a regular sized envelope! Woot Woot!

Coming Soon!!!

Posted on

Today, I’m sharing the reveal of the NEW Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! It is coming soon for all of you on September 1st!!!

Coming Soon Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I unboxed this on video and played with it and explored it on camera so everything is real! The white with silver accents is my favorite! It’s just so pretty! I can’t decide if I think it is heavier than the Big Shot or just that the suction to the table was strong. That is a good thing though because you don’t want the machine moving all over the place.

The sides pop down and fold up for easy storage or traveling! It is really easy to pop them down and they really snap back up! Assembling the handle was super easy to do as well!!!

As for the plates, I love that they are numbers and super clear as to which one is which. The instructions are on the main plate so that makes it super simple to have on hand and know what you need!

This is coming soon for all of you – September 1st!!! There is also a Mini Machine coming soon but the dates have not been announced just yet!

Just Keep Stamping!!!

Posted on

Very similar to the movie, Finding Nemo and Dory saying just keep swimming! In this case, just keep stamping!! It creates a beautiful bouquet and I just can’t get enough!

Just keep stamping, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is actually very simple and would be perfect for so many occasions!!! Let me know in the comments what occasion you would use it for!

I started with a Pretty Peacock card base. Next, I layered on some Pear Pizzazz cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Now for the stamping layer, I used Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set for all of the images. There are so many options in this set!

Forever Greenery Bouquet, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used various images and just stamped them up high, down low, and all around. Just keep stamping! The colors used were Garden Green, Pretty Peacock, Pear Pizzazz, and Blackberry Bliss.

Simple Layered Greeting With Gold Thread, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I went very simple with punched out circles to fit the greeting. The greeting was stamped in Blackberry Bliss and layered onto Pretty Peacock. Then I took some gold thread from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Pack! Wrap it around 4 fingers or so and then slide the loops off and place on the back of the greeting circle. Then secure the loops with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and add it to the card front. If the loops really flop around, you can always add a Mini Glue Dot and press the loops into it.

This quick and simple card can be used all year long. Check out the supplies below to recreate this card yourself!

Snowflake Splendor!!!

Posted on

I will play with snowflakes all day long in the stamp room but not in real life. I am not a huge fan of winter and bad weather. When I first saw this Snowflake Splendor Suite, I fell in love!!! Which is kind of odd since I just said I didn’t like snow and winter. Ehhh What are you going to do!?!?!

I think it’s those fabulous colors of blues, purples, and greens that I love the most. It’s soft but also POPS. The prints vary which gives a nice array of looks to use this paper for! I think it will make perfect backgrounds but also it’s stunning to just be the focal point! What do you think???

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!!!

Summer Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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???

Don’t forget that you can check out other designer series paper reveals here and here!

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!

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!!!
