Is there such a thing???

Posted on

You all know how much I love stamping with flowers, right??? Is there such a thing as too many flowers???

Is there such a thing, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I created this card and I love it but I also think it might be too much! Let me know what you think in the comments below! I did change this up and went with a similar but different look! Stay tuned as I will post that card soon!

I started with a Misty Moonlight card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped the flowers from Jar of Flowers on either side at the top. Since I colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends, I stamped the flowers in Memento Black. The Blends that I used were Rococo Rose, Soft Seafoam, Daffodil Delight, and Seaside Spray! I, also, stamped another set of the flowers on scrap paper and fussy cut them out!

Using the diagonal strip image from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set, I stamped a piece of Bumblebee cardstock with Bumblebee Ink. Don’t worry if this isn’t perfect. Just start with an angle and keep going. It will be just fine and adding the greeting over the top helps to hide any imperfections!

Now to assemble it all together. I added the fussy cut flowers in the center with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some texture and make the flowers pop more. Then I added the Bumblebee stamped cardstock on the lower half of the cardstock. Using Misty Moonlight Ribbon, I placed a strip across the card where the paper overlaps! This gives a nice smooth look between the two paper! Now you can add this to your card base. Then I placed a little bow that I created with the same ribbon in the center using a Mini Glue Dot.

For the greeting, I used one from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and the Label Me Lovely Punch. Here is a video tutorial for you to see how I layered the label punch! You can always use the greeting of your choice. I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

So let me know if you are loving this card or if you think it’s too much….if there is such a thing! 🙂 If you would like to recreate this card, check out the supplies below! If you would like to see more in this Flowers For Every Season Suite, click here!

Memories & More!!!

Posted on

You all know I love flowers but you have to check out these fun Memories & More Cards & Envelopes as well as the Card Collection for the Flowers For Every Season! These are just stunning! You can create cards or scrapbook with these amazing products!!

Memories & More, www.LaurasStampPad.com

While I started out as a scrapbooker, I do much more card making now! When the Memories & More Card Collections came out a few years ago, I sort of passed them up because I don’t scrapbook much anymore. I thought they were fabulous and cute for quick and simple scrapbooking though. THEN it all changed when Stampin’ Up started creating card & envelope packs to coordinate and that brought out a whole new ball game. These cards make amazing, quick, and simple cards that are fabulous! You could also use these cards as a little tag to write a note on when dropping off something to a friend. There are endless possibilities. I will be posting samples that I created next week. Today, you get to see what these products are!

Posted on

The March 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit was AMAZING! I love the Spring look and the fun rain boots! It also came with an extra stamp set which is super fun too! Check out all 12 of the cards in this kit!

March 2020 Paper Pumpkin, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I just love all of these cards! The coordinating striped envelopes are super cute too! I’m not 100% sure which color goes with which card but that’s okay!

Cute Rain Boots, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is so fun because of all the colorful boots. My first card was that bottom left hand card. Notice that the green boots don’t line up with the girl’s boots. Oppps! I didn’t realize that they matched up and so I just placed the boots down. 🙂 No one will notice! This card has the clear raindrops on it that add just a little bit of texture and shine!

Bunnies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The bunny is adorable and makes this a fun Easter card! You can see that a I used the clear epoxy dots for this card. The photo doesn’t show it very well but there are like 3 above the flowers and 2 over by the bunny!

Waiting out the storm, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I’m not a huge fan of storms because….well…they are scary! Seeing these beautiful flowers and cute boots just proves to me that there is still beauty during the storm. There is hope that we will get through it and we will!

Paper Pumpkin is so much fun and I love getting something new each month that is a surprise! I love getting card kits that are perfect for the time of year we are in. Join in the fun with me and get Paper Pumpkin too! Click here to sign up for 1 month or as long as you want!

Another Sensational Year!!!

Posted on

Everyone should celebrate their birthday like it’s the greatest day ever because after all, IT IS!!!! You were born and are here to celebrate! It’s fabulous!!! This card is perfect to celebrate that and wish you the best for another sensational year!!!

Best Dressed, www.LaurasStampPad.com

It’s just so beautiful! The colors, the flowers, and that fabulous layered greeting! I love it all!

I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base. Next, I layered a piece of Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″) onto a piece of Purple Posy (4″ x 5-1/4″). Before adding this to the card front, I tied some Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding around it. I just tied it into a knot but you could always go for the bow!

Label Me Lovely Punch, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Sending You Thoughts Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink! Then I punched it out with the Label Me Fancy Punch! This was then layered onto a Blackberry Bliss piece that I punched out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some added texture!

Another Sensational Year, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Blackberry Bliss is a super dark color so of course I needed some decoration on the inside. I added in a piece of Whisper White and just put a little leftover strip of the designer paper on the left side. The greeting comes from the same stamp set and coordinates so well! I love it!

Check out all of the supplies listed below so you can make this another sensational year card! Also, check out this one for more inspiration using these products!

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, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!!!

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.
