Floral One Sheet Wonder!!

Posted on

One Sheet Wonders are so much fun because they use ALL of one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (or 6″ x 6″). I like to stick to minimal products as well to really just enjoy the card making part and not the big mess part! 🙂 This Floral One Sheet Wonder is my current favorite!!!

Floral One Sheet Wonder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper which is just stunning! The back side of the floral paper is that fun mosaic yellow print which I used on 2 cards. It was just so hard to not use the floral side. Then I looked at the paper pack at the coordinating colors and picked my favorite – Night of Navy, Petal Pink, and Merry Merlot. I went with Basic White even though there is also some Very Vanilla in the pattern too.

First, I started off by cutting my card bases in each of the 3 colors (4 bases). This makes 12 cards! Then I cut my designer series paper and just started layering and mixing and matching! For the greetings, I stamped the Many Messages greeting in Merry Merlot and Night of Navy and die cut them with the coordinating die. BOOM! 19 greetings in each color! It was so quick and simple. AMAZING! Then as I was creating the cards, I just grabbed a greeting and popped it on. Another option would be to package the cards and greetings together and attach as you need the cards.

This Floral One Sheet Wonder set made quick and simple cards for all of my upcoming occasions! This is also a great gift to wrap all of these cards up together and offer!

Total Perfection!!!

I love Birthdays! Everyone has one and it’s the perfect time to celebrate OURSELVES! It’s our day! So do exactly what you want and enjoy it to the fullest. Heck, sometimes I even like to call it my birthday month! It’s not my birthday month but I do have a fabulous birthday card to share with you today! I think it’s total perfection!

Total Perfection, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I just love this birthday greeting from the Sale-A-Bration Approaching Perfection Stamp Set! That set has lots of fun birthday greetings in it AND you can get it for FREE with a $50 order! Woot Woot!

This fun card is a Z fold card. I started with a Bermuda Bay card base. Fold it in half like a normal card and then fold the front panel back in half! It’s as easy as that. Then I added some Flower & Field Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper to the front panel. This piece measures 5-3/8″ x 2-1/8″.

Approaching Perfection Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies in Whisper White and Bumblebee. When I did the greeting with regular dies, it just didn’t pop. Then I did the stitching and it just POPPED! It’s crazy how such a little texture gives such a big look! The greeting was stamped in Bermuda Bay on the front and inside! Be sure when adding the rectangle greeting to the card front that you only put adhesive on the left hand side otherwise you will seal your card closed! Then I finished it off with a few Black

Spread the Love!!!

Valentine’s Day is around the corner so I want to share this sample to inspire you!!! This card is perfect for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, and just any old day to spread the love!

Spread the Love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love this card because it’s so fabulous it doesn’t even need a greeting on the front which makes it even more versatile! Perfect!!!

I started with a regular Whisper White card base and folded it in half. Then I cut 3/4″ off the front flap to reveal the inside of the card. Then I stamped the row of hearts from the Lots of Hearts Stamp Set along the edge in Rococo Rose Ink! I also stamped a greeting on the inside in Rococo Rose Ink!

For the front of the card, I added a piece of Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper (5-1/4″ x 3-1/4″) on the front flap! Then for the heart, I stamped it in Rococo Rose onto Blushing Bride and layered it onto Rococo Rose! Next, I added a little loop of the Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon and secured it with Stampin’ Dimensionals! I actually used the underside of the ribbon rather than the super metallic side! It’s softer and perfect!

Be Merry!!!

Posted on

Have you ever created your own designer series paper??? It’s super fun and simple because you simply stamp all over. For this Be Merry card, I did just that to create a fun holly background! When I did this card for a class, everyone was asking where the holly paper was!!! 🙂

Be Merry, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Garden Green piece of cardstock measuring 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and this is my card base! It sounds weird but follow me! 🙂 Next, I added strips of Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (1″ x 4″) on either side. I found that putting these on first really helped with my spacing. Then I took a piece of Garden Green cardstock measuring 8-1/2″ x 3″ and folded it in half at 4-1/4″ for that center card piece!!!

Now to decorate the center card, I cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla measuring 2-3/4″ x 4″. One is for the front and one for the inside! On the front, I stamped the holly berries in Real Red and the leaves in Garden Green. Be sure to fall off the edge of the cardstock in order to make it look like the pattern continues on! Stamp a few holly berries and leaves on the piece for the inside too! All of the stamped images are from the Banner Year Stamp Set. I love how versatile this set is!

Christmas Wishes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting on the front, I used the Everyday Label Punch and Timeless Label Punch. The greeting was stamped in Real Red and I attached it partially hanging off the card piece. Just be sure to only add adhesive to the left side so you don’t seal your card closed! I finished off the card with some Gilded Gems!

Posted on

On Tuesday, I shared a Copper Heat Embossed card using the Christmas Gleaming Suite. Check that out here. If you are looking for an easier look for making multiples this season or are scared to jump into heat embossing, check out this copper foil fun card!

Easy Foil Look, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Pretty Peacock card base. Then I layered on a piece of the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. The elegant foil really makes for a stunning shine! Next, I tied some copper ribbon around the inside spine of the card. This ribbon is from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Pack.

Deck the Halls, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The greeting was created with the Tasteful Labels Dies. I die cut in Very Vanilla and stamped the greeting in Pretty Peacock Ink. The greeting is from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set! I layered this onto a piece of Copper Foil Paper to really add as much shine to the card as possible! The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

Be Jolly This Season, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Very Vanilla (4″ x 5-1/4″) with a little scrap piece of designer paper on the left hand side. Using more stamps from the Christmas Gleaming Set, I stamped the greeting and holly in Pretty Peacock! Simple and fabulous!!!

Embossed Designer Paper!!!

Posted on

I feel like this season there is a chance for more mailed Christmas presents than normal. That means sending a fun thank you will be needed, right?!?!? This embossed designer paper card with a super cute seasonal greeting is perfect….and simple!

Embossed Designer Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Night of Navy card base. Next, I took a piece of the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (ON SALE) and embossed it with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. This gives some cool texture and really makes the splatter/cloudy designer paper pop more! Then I layered this onto a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″). Using some Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Pack, I tied it around the layered embossed piece. Then I added it to the card front.

Thank You Snow Much, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I die cut out the label from the Painted Labels Dies. The greeting is from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set! I stamped the greeting in Night of Navy Ink and then I stamped a few snowflakes around in Seaside Spray. For the snowflakes, I did stamp off once to make sure it was a subtle background look and not overwhelming on the greeting! This was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

On the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped a few snowflakes along the right side!!! Don’t forget you can always stamp the envelope as well to really pull it all together!

All the Presents!!!

Posted on

It’s December so let the decorating, baking, card sending, and gifting begin!!! NOTE: Stampin’ Up! suggestions orders be placed by December 9th to ensure the delivery will arrive before Christmas. Want to recreate this fun All the Presents card?? Check out the technique below!

I started with a piece of Real Red cardstock for the card base (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″). Next, I layered on a piece of Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″) on top. Then I took a piece of Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon and wrapped the ends around a scrap piece of Pear Pizzazz. I added this to the center of the card. When I assembled the card, I thought the focal point didn’t pop enough. The ribbon also got lost in the stripes but when I added the Pear Pizzazz it was PERFECT!

Now for the focal point, I die cut a Stitched Nested Label in Whisper White. Then using the Most Wonderful Time Stamp Set, I stamped both the presents and the greeting. For the greeting, I used Mossy Meadow Ink.

For the present which are all connected on one stamp, I inked one of the outside presents in Real Red Ink. Since it’s photopolymer, I was able to see how far in I needed to add ink. Then I inked the other end and middle present in Pear Pizzazz Ink (light green). Finally I inked the present on the end that’s already inked in Pear Pizzazz in Mossy Meadow. Since I went from light green to dark green, I wasn’t that worried about mixing ink colors. Then I stamped it down onto the label. All of the bows were inked in Real Red Ink and stamped down! Check out this video of Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy for a better look at this technique!

On the inside of the card, I stamped the little tree 3 times after inking it just once in Mossy Meadow Ink. This gives that fun variation in color and looks like there are multiples! The greeting was stamped in Real Red Ink. Both of these images are from the same Most Wonderful Time Medley!

One of A Kind!!!

Posted on

Happy December!!!! It’s been one heck of a year and here we are in the last month. This year is one of a kind and staying connected with family and friends is sooooo important. Whether it’s a Christmas Card, Birthday Card, or Just Because card, remember to share your love of stamping with those around you by sending a card.

One of A Kind, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card makes for the perfect #happymail card this season! It has the winter theme and that sweet greeting!!

I started with a piece of Pacific Point as the card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ and stamped the greeting on the bottom right corner in Pacific Point Ink. Then I layered on a piece of Silver Foil Paper (4″ x 4″) and Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″) up top. Before adding this to the card base, I tied around some Whisper White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack. This gives the card some texture and also softens the transition from the designer paper to the greeting!

I added this layer to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then finished it off with a few Basic Rhinestones!!! A card is just so much better with a little bit of bling.

Snowy Slopes!!!

Posted on

Have you seen the NEW Curvy Celebrations Suite?? There are 2 stamp sets and dies and paper and they are super fun! Check out this fun card I created with snowy slopes!

Snowy Slopes created with the Curvy Celebrations Suite, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the color combination – Sahara Sand and Shaded Spruce! This would make a great Winter card for any occasion! It is so fun and peaceful!

I started with a Sahara Sand card base and added a piece of the Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″). The awesome thing is that there are lots of prints in the pack that work for this piece so there are lots of fabulous looks! Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and die cut the dotted slope. This creates 2 pieces with slopes. Two for one in die cutting is totally my kind of die cutting!

Classic Christmas Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Before adding the snowy slopes to the card front, place one down where you would like it to be and then slide it down a smidge. Then I stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce just above that slope. I used it as a guide. Once the trees were stamped, I added the slopes. They can overlap and swag any which way! Then I added this piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You know I can’t have a card without them! I finished off the card with a little green rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestone Pack!

Curvy Christmas Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside, I used the greenery and greeting from the same Curvy Christmas Stamp Set! This greenery image is amazing and perfect for card insides and envelopes! I love it!

Rainbow Snowflakes?!?

Posted on

Disclaimer: Still not a fan of winter! LOL I sure have been stamping a lot lately with snowflakes and wintery themes as I’m working on my Christmas Cards. One of them is this gorgeous Rainbow Snowflakes Card!!! What do you think?

Rainbow Snowflakes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I just love the bright colors….surprise, surprise. 🙂 Also, this card is fairly simple to create with few layers and minimal stamping! The die cutting and poking out can make a person go crazy though! LOL

I started with a Bermuda Bay card base and then layered on a piece of that AMAZING Rainbow Glimmer Paper. This stuff is so beautiful and brings happiness to my life for sure! Each sheet is ombre of purple, blue, green, pink, orange, and yellow. Since this piece is only 4″ x 5-1/4″, you can pick which colors you use for your card! You can see 2 different color combinations with the samples here!

So Many Snowflakes Dies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″) and die cut 3 snowflakes using the So Many Snowflakes Dies. Try to leave a small little spot to put a greeting. I went super small since I used a greeting from the Itty Bitty Christmas Greetings Stamp Set! After die cutting the snowflakes, I delicately popped out the two smaller ones.

Check out the photo above and below these words. In the sample above, all of the pieces popped out from the snowflake center so I added Fine Tip Glue Pen to the edges and glues them off set to the coordinating one. The center is just hanging there. In the sample below, the snowflake centers stayed in and I added a Stampin’ Dimensional to the center to hold them in place and popped the snowflake in the middle. There was no intention on these 2 options, it just happened and I went with it!

Rainbow Glimmer Snowflakes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I added the Whisper White cardstock to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This gives that 3D look and makes it pop more! The greeting was stamped in Bermuda Bay from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. I did it on a piece of scrap Whisper White as to not mess us my super cute snowflake piece after all of that work. You can always use your favorite punch or just snip the ends diagonal. Then I finished off the card with some Rhinestones for additional bling!

Tis the Season, Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card would be perfect for any occasion throughout the Winter season so leave off the greeting till you need a card and then add it on!

Snowflake Wishes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I simply stamped some snowflakes and a greeting from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay! Click here for one click shopping for the items used in this Rainbow Snowflakes cards!!!
