Heartfelt!!!

Posted on

You all know how much I love to do the heart hands on my videos! I am not really sure when or how that started but I love doing it. Somehow Claire has picked up on it and wants to do heart hands with me now and that just warms my heart. So sweet! When I saw that image in the Here Together Stamp Set, I had to have it just for that image and this heartfelt card!

Heartfelt Here Together Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Blushing Bride card base. Next I layered on a piece of the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper. I love how the back side of this paper isn’t Valentine’s Day specific and can be used all year long for amazing cards like this one! Then I added a strip of Blushing Bride and Basic White. On the white, I stamped the greeting Heartfelt in Real Red Ink. This image is from the Lovely You Stamp Set. It’s so simple and fabulous and makes this card perfect for so many different occasions!

For the focal point, I stamped the heart hands in Memento Black Ink onto scrap Basic White and punched it out with the smooth heart punch. Then I layered it onto a Real Red scallop heart punched piece. This I added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off the card with some Polished Dots. There are pale pink and clear ones and honestly either one would work for this card!

On the inside of the card, I added a piece of Basic White and a leftover strip of the Sweet Talk Designer Paper along the left side. I can’t wait to send this card out for some fun #Happymail. Would you use the Heartfelt greeting or a different one for this card? Let me know in the comments below!

Here For You!!!

Posted on

I love the message on this card and it really comes in handy now and again! I recently made this card for a friend who was having surgery and I hope it warmed her heart. Here for you, I promise! It would make a great card for teenagers or those going off to college too!

Here For You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the color combination with this card. The red is bold but the blue softens it for a warm and heartfelt feeling! Try out Real Red and Balmy Blue and see for yourself!!!

I started with a Balmy Blue card base measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and stamped the “I Promise” and the heart outline all over the card front. Be sure to angle the images in different ways. Typically I start with the larger image and then fill in with the smaller one! I used Balmy Blue Ink for just that subtle background look!

Stampin Up Together Forever Bundle, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I took a 3″ x 3″ piece of You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper and layered it onto Real Red (3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″). Then I tied some Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon around it and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting, I used the Here For You Dies and adhesive sheets. Simply add the adhesive sheet to the back of the Real Red cardstock and then run it through the Mini Cut & Emboss Machine (which is on sale for 20% this month)! Now you have a homemade sticker and a quick and easy greeting! I also snuck in the heart next to the greeting to die cut at the same time!

Homemade Here For You Greeting Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added the heart and greeting that was stamped all over the background! Just a little fun touch! You could also add some to the envelope!

If you would like to make this Here For You card, check out the supplies listed below! Don’t forget that the Mini Cut & Emboss is on sale for 20% off till the end of March!!! There are also select bundles on sale as well!

February 2022 Paper Pumpkin!!!

Posted on

The February 2022 Paper Pumpkin isn’t really my style but it’s good to have cards like this on hand. After all I do have lots of nieces and nephews and my own kids that would love a card as cute as these!

February 2022 Paper Pumpkin, www.LaurasStampPad.com

While monkeys are my favorite, I think this elephant one is actually my favorite out of this set of cards! There is something about the roller skates and cuteness that I love! This card could be used as a birthday card but also as a fun happy mail card. I could send it after grades come in or for a sports tournament or just because! Kids love getting happy mail and words of encouragement as well!

This card shows off the vellum and the little rock stones really well. They are subtle but also add a fun layer and texture to the project! This is another card that is fun to send as general happy mail to brighten someone’s day! Honestly it works for all ages, I think! What about you?! Let me know in the comments below!

I keep thinking this one is a giraffe but it’s not! Still super fun and I love cupcakes so I’m on board! Also, I have to mention that the envelopes for each of these cards are SUPER CUTE and fun! Just over all these 9 cards are fun and different to add to my card collection and I can’t wait to send them out and spread some happiness!

The March Paper Pumpkin Kit is called Beyond the Horizon and coordinates with the On The Horizon Suite!!! There is also 2 stamp sets in the kit to celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s Birthday! Woot Woot! Today is the last day to get signed up so hurry up and do it now! Click here to get the March Kit!

Lovely Layered Look!!!

Posted on

I know that Sale-A-Bration is over but I just have to share this fun card with you! This lovely layered look works with lots of different stamped images. If you don’t have the Sale-A-Bration Friendly Hello, that’s okay! If you do, then I hope this card inspires you to create with it!

Lovely Layered Look, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This look is super cool and it’s super easy to do! That’s my kind of WOW card! For this one, I would say all of the coloring is the hardest part, LOL! You all know I am not a huge fan of lots of coloring!

I started off with a piece of Basic Black cardstock as the card base. Then I cut 2 piece of Basic White measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″. One is for the card front and the other one is for the inside of the card. Using Memento Black Ink, I stamped the greeting in the center and then added flowers all around it and to the edge of the cardstock. Then, it’s time to color. I actually colored after I cut the circle but I think it would probably be easier to color first.

Once you are done coloring, simply cut out the greeting with the Layering Circles Dies. Adhere the rectangle to the card front, be sure it is right side up so that the greeting circle lines up with the flowers and the greeting isn’t upside down. Then die cut out the scallop circle in Basic Black cardstock and layer the greeting on top. Then just like a puzzle piece, place this layer over the center of the card! How amazing is that?!?! Simple and fabulous!

March Mini Special!!!

Posted on

The Olympics are over and we are headed into Spring! I am super excited about basketball this month AND the March Mini Special that Stampin’ Up has!

March Mini Special, www.LaurasStampPad.com

You all know how much I LOVE my Mini!!!! It’s so cute and so easy to use! I have mine ON my craft desk within reach at all times. I can just grab it, crank through a die, and I’m on my way! It is so much easier, light weight, and quick! The best part is I would say that 90% of my dies that I am using go through the Mini which is even better!

I will admit that when it first came out, I always thought why do I need the Mini if I have the Big one that can do all dies?! Then I got it so I could show it off to all of you. Then I actually started using it and I fell in love….HARD! So if you are thinking the same thing, maybe now is the time to try it out and let the Mini change your crafting exerience like it did mine! Click here to get your Mini for 20% off!!!

Calming Camellia!!!

Posted on

The Calming Camellia Stamp Set is an exclusive stamp set during Sale-A-Bration for orders of $350 or more. This can be a single order or a few orders gathered together!

Calming Camellia Stampin Up Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is super simple but does require a lot of die cutting! This card uses the Scallop Contour Dies and I am LOVING those lately! The little detailed scallop for each one makes it super fun to layer. I die cut 4 scallops for this card – 3 for the front and 1 for the inside!

You could mix up the colors or go for a monochromatic look like I did! I used Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride cardstock. The ink is Melon Mambo!

Stampin' Up! Scalloped Contour Dies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

On the inside, I stamped some more fun but I will say that it makes the area for the greeting rather small. When I created this card on video, I actually stamped the curly cues on the Basic White card base rather than the scalloped die cut and I LOVE that look. You can check out the video tutorial here!

You have less than 2 weeks left to get this beautiful Calming Camellia Stamp Set so you can recreate this card! Click the supplies used below to get started! What color would you use?!?!?

Of course there are 2 little ones who take up the rest of my time too! So relax with me for another 5 minutes and check out this fun card!

The In The Moment Stamp Set has beautiful images for a card like this! The greetings are great for everyday type cards! #HappyMail The line art images are great for coloring as well so shout out to all of my coloring lovers!!!

For this card, I stamped the image in Memento Black Ink and colored it in! I always like to take a photo of the markers I use so I remember for next time….and to share with all of you! Then I used the Layering Circle Dies to die cut out the image! This was then layered onto a piece of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper!

Stampin' Up Stamp Blends Alcohol Markers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The neutral colors of the card base and designer paper make it super easy to use any colors you would like for the image which is fun to mix it up!

Friendly Birthday!!!

Posted on

One of the options for a $100 order is the Friendly Hello Bundle which includes a stamp set and 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper! I love the pastel yet bright colors and of course it’s FLOWERS! <3 I created this fun friendly birthday card in both Pale Papaya and Fresh Freesia!

Friendly Birthday Homemade Greeting Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I honestly am not sure which color I prefer the most! I really love both of them and had fun using this designer paper! Also, I love the fact that I created the same card with multiple sheets in the paper pack and got a similar look. Woot woot!

Friendly Hello Sale-A-Bration Bundle, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card uses a regular card base of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ but rather than just folding it in half, I folded a bit from both sides. The left side is 3-1/4″ and the right side is 1″. On the left I added a piece of the designer paper (3″ x 5-1/4″) and on the right I stamped a greenery image from the stamp set. The image was stamped in the same color as the card base for a subtle look!

Stampin' Up Scallop Contour Dies, www.laurasstamppad.com

For the greeting, I used the Scallop Contour Dies for that adorable dotted scallop retangle! Precious!!! The greeting from the Friendly Hello Stamp Set fits perfectly in that die! I added a little loop of ribbon on one end and added it to the card front hanging off a bit. When I have a piece hanging off like this I like to use Tear & Tape! Then I finished it off with some jewels!!!

Coloring With Stampin' Blends Markers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

On the inside of the card, I stamped the floral image in Memento Black and colored the flower in with Stampin’ Blends! There is still time for you to earn the Friendly Hello Bundle so you can make friendly birthday cards like these! Click the supplies listed below or just click ADD ALL TO CART for easy shopping!

Sweet Conversations!!!

Posted on

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away!!! Here are some cards that I created with the Sweet Conversations Suite – Stamp, Dies, and Designer Paper!!! Super simple and fun to show you love someone!!! The January Paper Pumpkin also helped with my Valentine’s this year!

Sweet Conversations Stampin Up Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I really love this card. It’s a simple stamping with the greeting only. Highland Heather is a fabulous color to use with reds and pinks too! I am super digging it! The coordinating Sweet Hearts Dies are super fabulous because there are 13 individual hearts of different sizes that you can die cut all at the same time. It didn’t take forever for me to die cut a lot to make lots of these. That is a BONUS for me for sure! I’m not always a huge fan of die cutting a lot for a card!

Happy Galentine's Day, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Happy Galentine’s Day…..do you celebrate?!?!? I simply took the same greeting as the card above and stamped it down. Then using the Hug Me stamp, I cut out the G and added it over the top of the V. Super cute and fun! This card uses other dies from that same set – the tag and the hearts! The heart dies from the set actually coordinate with the Designer Series Paper. Love it!!!
