Shades of Blue!!!

Posted on

Sometimes I like to use a large array of colors and other times I like to use various shades of the same color. This fun card made of shades of blue is just fabulous!!!

Shades of Blue, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is just stamps, ink, and paper! Simple and fabulous! You could pick any color combination you would like for this same look! I used Blueberry Bushel & Seaside Spray!

First, I started with a Seaside Spray card base and stamped the poppies in the lower left corner. These were stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink and I staggered them for a more natural garden look! Then I stamped the cluster of poppies in Memento Black Ink onto a strip of Whisper White. This image is just a bit too small to be stamped once so I did it twice; hanging off either end. It’s like 3/4 of the image stamped on the left and right. Next, I stamped the splotchy image in Seaside Spray and Blueberry Bushel. For the blueberry, you may want to stamp off once to lighten the color a bit and not have it over power the poppies. Then I layered this piece onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel and added it to the card front. All of these images are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set!

For the greeting, I stamped it in Memento Black Ink just below the poppies. This area is big enough to use just about any greeting and flowers are perfect for any occasion. I used the stamp from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. This set is one of my go-to’s lately!

For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped a few poppies in Blueberry Bushel in the corner! Don’t forget that you can stamp a few poppies on your envelope as well! 🙂

It’s a Poppy Moment!!!

Posted on

This title – It’s a Poppy Moment – makes me think of the movie Trolls. I do love that movie because it’s so cute and I played with trolls as a kid! 🙂 What about you? Did you play with trolls? Let me know in the comments below!

It's a Poppy Moment, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Okay back to the card at hand and not the movie Trolls! 🙂 Isn’t this one beautiful with a simple greeting stamped in black and die cut flowers! If you made a bunch of these, I would suggest die cutting a whole bunch while watching your favorite show/movie. Then assemble them with the Fine Tip Glue Pen or this fun trick! Then head to your craft table and assemble the card!

I used Poppy Parade for the card base. Next, I layered Basic Black and Whisper White. Be sure to stamp your greeting before assembling the flowers. This way you don’t have to worry about leaving enough space and if you mess up the stamped greeting, it doesn’t ruin the entire card front. Just flip it over! 🙂

Sending Healing Hugs!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!!! It’s finally March!! Time to get out the bright colors and embrace the fact that SPRING IS COMING!!! Yes, I’m very excited and so ready for Winter to end. This beautiful sending healing hugs has everything I love – pink, flowers, bling, and love!!!!

Sending Healing Hugs, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Getting a card like this is sure to brighten your day at least for a bit. I know a card can’t take away the pain of losing someone or physical pain a person might be battling. This card CAN show love, caring, and take your mind off of it for a minute or 2. There is a lot of power in a handmade card! Send one out today and see!!!

I started with a Lovely Lipstick card base. Next, I layered some Best Dressed Designer Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) onto a piece of Petal Pink (4″ x 5-1/4″). Then I tied some of the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon around it and into a knot. Make sure you get this step in before adhering this layer to the card base.

Pretty Label Punch, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it in Melon Mambo Ink onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch! The greeting is from the So Sentimental Stamp Set! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This adds some texture but also gives a smooth look over that ribbon. I finished off the card with a few Champagne Rhinestones!

Floral Card Insert, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. There was a little strip of designer paper leftover so I added it to the left side. This really pulls it all together and makes it fabulous!!!

Painted Poppy Elements, www.LaurasStampPad.com

All I did was stamp a greeting and layer it all together. Isn’t it beautiful?!?!? It was super simple too! 🙂

I started with a Poppy Parade card base. Next, I layered a piece of Peaceful Poppy Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) onto Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I tied some Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding around it and into a double knot. Then I tied the bow. This makes the ribbon nice and tight and you can take your time with creating the bow. Then I added these layers to the card base!

For the greeting, I die cut out these fabulous scallop dotted rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The greeting is from the coordinating So Sentimental Stamp Set.

Golden Honey One Sheet Wonder!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Today’s Technique Tuesday is the Golden Honey One Sheet Wonder!!! I know how much you all love One Sheet Wonders so I hope you enjoy this one too!!!

All 9 of these cards were created with 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ Golden Honey Designer Series Paper!!! I used both sides of the paper so no struggle for which side to use!

The first cut was at 4″ creating a 4″ x 12″ strip which I then cut into 4″ x 4″ squares! This is the first 3 cards! I used the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set for all of the greetings!

Next, I cut a 2″ strip off. This creates a 2″ x 12″ piece that I then cut into 2″ x 4″ pieces. That first card was created by cutting the 2″ x 4″ into 2″ squares. I used Stampin’ Blends to color in the designer paper for even more variability. Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight were the colors I used on all of these cards!

Then, I cut a 5-1/4″ piece off which created a 5-1/4″ x 12″ piece. I cut this one into 4″ x 5-1/4″ and used it as backgrounds for my cards. Again, I colored in the flowers with Stampin’ Blends for some added flare!

The leftover strip is 3/4″ x 12″ and I cut it into 2 pieces to decorate the inside of the 2 cards! One strip is 4″ x 3/4″ and the other is 5-1/4″ x 3/4″. Perfect way to use up every bit of the paper!

Check out the full Golden Honey One Sheet Wonder tutorial in the video below or click here! Be sure to give the video a thumbs up if you liked it and don’t forget to subscribe if you are new.

Hearts & Flowers!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday!!! Happy February!!! While this post isn’t all about Valentine’s Day, it is all about hearts & flowers!!!

Hearts & Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The greeting includes the hearts and the image includes the flowers! The card is filled with love to share with someone special! (PS: Send the cards you make to share the love. Don’t hoard them all to yourself.) Also, I have to give a shout out to Monica Giberti for the inspiration for this card! Thank you, Monica! I love it!

This one I started with a Melon Mambo card base and stamped the “waves” on the background in Melon Mambo Ink. This is from the Lovely Lily Pad Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Be sure to off set the stamped images so it doesn’t look like the same image up and down but rather a random look. Next, I layered a piece of the Lily Pad Impressions Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper onto some Garden Green cardstock. I placed this in the center of the card base.

For the focal point of the flower, I punched out a 2-1/4″ Whisper White Circle and placed it on the right side. Then using the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set and coordinating Lily Pad Dies, I stamped and die cut the image. I used Melon Mambo Ink for the outline and then flipped the stamp over and inked it in Flirty Flamingo! I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this to the card front! The greeting is on a 1″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. This greeting is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set in the 2020 Mini Catalog. I love this greeting! To finish it all off, I added a few Champagne Rhinestones for some texture and bling!

Lily Pad Impression, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside, I stamped the lily in the corner! It’s perfect and adds a little fun to the inside! I just love the colors of this card and the fact that the Stamp, Dies, and Designer Paper are all items that you can earn for FREE!!!! Woot Woot! I love Sale-A-Bration.

Check out the supplies below so you can start earning these goodies and make a card with hearts & flowers!

Talking is Priceless!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday everyone!!! If you know me even for a second, you will find out I’m loud. I’m a talker and I’m a bit crazy! Aren’t we all a bit crazy though?!?!? Today, I’m going to focus on the second one though. Talking is priceless!!!

Talking is priceless, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This greeting speaks to me heart and soul! A chat with a friend to forget about the chaos in your life. Talking over something that is bothering you to help get it off your chest. Telling stories of past times to laugh and cry over the wonderful memories. It’s all so fabulous!

I started this card with a Blackberry Bliss card base. Next, I layered some Coastal Cabana and Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. The Lily Impressions Paper is one of the Sale-A-Bration FREE items and I highly recommend it. It’s so beautiful! For the greeting, I used the Thanks For The Laughs Stamp Set from the 2020 Mini Catalog! I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss on a scrap of white. The banner tips were created with the Banner Triple Punch. I do recommend punching first so that you don’t end up punching off your greeting! To finish it off, I wrapped a few loops of Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine around my fingers and laid it on the back of the greeting. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I secured it down and placed it on the card front!

Thank You For The Laughs, www.LaurasStampPad.com

On the inside of the card, I added a layer of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the coordinating greeting on the bottom. On the left, I added a little leftover piece of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (using the back side of the paper this time). It’s so fabulous and perfect for anyone that you talk too! After all, talking is priceless!

I just love Sale-A-Bration time and getting free stuff! The Baker’s Twine is also a Sale-A-Bration freebie. Buy the stuff you love and get more stuff you love for FREE! Woot Woot! Check out the supplies listed below to recreate this card!

Monday Mail!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I have decided I want to send out more cards just because. I would like to tell others I’m thinking of them or happy for them. We all love happy mail, right?? So today, I’m sharing some Monday Mail that I sent out just because!

Monday Mail, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card I created for a special someone who recently earned a trip through her work. I’m so happy for her and the hard work she has put in. The Tropical Oasis Suite is perfect for creating this card for her. I couldn’t wait! I whipped up this card quickly so I could get it out!

Starting with a Daffodil Delight card base, I layered on Lovely Lipstick (4″ x 5-1/4″) and a piece of the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″). I love these bright colors so much! They make me so happy. For the greeting, I used the Thanks For The Laughs Stamp Set. The greetings in this set are just perfect for fun cards like this. It’s perfect!!!!

Fraying Braided Burlap, www.LaurasStampPad.com

After stamping the greeting in Lovely Lipstick Ink, I punched it out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. Then I punched out another one in Lovely Lipstick cardstock. I trimmed off the top and bottom of the white greeting so it would layer perfectly. Next, I took the Braided Burlap Trim and frayed the ends a bit. Securing it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the greeting!

Today you get it in writing, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added the coordinating greeting from the Thanks for the Laughs Stamp Set! I love it!!!
