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!

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???

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!!!

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!!

Embrace Each Moment!!

Posted on

When I first saw this stamp set, I knew I had to have it. It just speaks to me and I feel like it’s perfect for cards that I can make for Brad but also others in my life! The greeting embrace each moment is so loving and caring. I just love it!

Embrace Each Moment, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card has beautiful shades of blue with hints of texture! It actually is a really simple card to create too! I used the Embrace Each Moment Stamp Set for both the image and greeting!

I started with a Bermuda Bay card base. Next, I embossed a piece of Coastal Cabana with the Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder. This is a nice subtle texture that works for any style of card! The hugging couple were stamped in Memento Black onto the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (3″ x 3″). Next, it was layered onto a Night of Navy 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ square and added to the left hand side of the card front.

Homemade Card for your Husband, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper has fun patterns and colors. You will notice that the top card uses a darker piece of paper and this card uses a lighter piece. Either way, they both look fabulous!!!

For the greeting, I die cut a label from the Stitched Nested Labels and stamped it in Bermuda Bay Ink! The greeting was added to the card front with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, I finished it off with a few of the navy rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestones Pack!

If you would like to recreate this Embrace Each Moment card, check out the supplies listed below!!! Don’t forget that all orders of $50 will earn $5 Bonus Bucks to spend in August! Woot Woot!

Peony Garden Paper!!!

Posted on

You all know I love flowers!! I really love Peonies too! They were used in our wedding flowers actually! When Stampin’ Up released the Peony Garden Paper, I got super excited. I would love to see more shades of pink but I know everything can’t be pink! 🙂

Peony Garden Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This paper has Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White! While I wish it was all shades of pink, I am excited to use the grays with bright colored flowers as the focal point! I can’t wait to start playing with this paper! There are also lots of basic background images that will be good for any occasion or gender!

You Make Me Smile!!!

Posted on

Yes, you reading this! You make me smile! Each and every day while I enjoy what I do creating cards. I also LOVE IT because of all of you! Your comments, your likes, your following….it all means the world to me and I love it! I’m happy that you are all enjoying what I love too! I may be crazy, even a hot mess sometimes, and don’t have it together on my Facebook Lives but it’s still fun (and that’s life, am I right?!?!)!!!

You Make Me Smile, www.LaurasStampPad.com

By the way, Daily Dose of Stampin’ Therapy on my Facebook has “ended” as I can’t keep up with 5 days a week and start back with classes and events as things open back up and Brad goes back to working in the office. BUT I am going to change the name to…Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy or Your Dose of Stampin’ Therapy. It will still happen just not daily. Cast your vote in the comments below for the new name!!!

This card uses the Forever Fern Stamp Set and many other items in the Forever Greenery Suite!!! I have been loving all of these products. Those shades of greens and blues are just stunning!

I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I went with this size because it uses less ribbon to go around the card at 4-1/4″ rather than 5-1/2″. Next, I layered on a 2″ x 4″ piece of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper on the left hand side! Any of the pieces in the pack look great as I have tried many! Then I tied some Just Jade Ribbon around the card front and layered over the designer paper! The ribbon goes to the inside of the card!

Forever Greenery, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the embossed image, I used Just Jade cardstock and placed it in the Greenery Embossing Folder on the bottom end. It does actually emboss a smidge of the top greenery as well….and that’s why the greeting is placed in the upper left corner. 😉 There is a way to hide anything! I layered the embossed image onto Shaded Spruce cardstock. For that fabulous you make me smile greeting, I used the Label Me Lovely Punch and just trimmed it down! The greeting was stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added some Champagne Rhinestones on the edges!

If you would like to recreate this You Make Me Smile card, check out the supplies below! Also, be sure to come back as I have more samples to share with you using this Suite! Click here to see the full sheets of every piece of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper!

Artistry Blooms Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com
