Peaceful Poppy Elements!!!

Want to get the beautiful poppy look without buying the stamp set?? Check out these Peaceful Poppy Elements and the beautiful Peaceful Poppy Designer Series Paper!!!

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!

Friendship is a blessing, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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. Bundle & Save 10% when you purchase these together! Then I added the little Peaceful Poppy Elements to the left hand side. The greeting was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture. To finish it off, I added a few Peaceful Poppy Sequins with the Fine Tip Glue Pen! Of course a little designer paper for the inside really brings it all together!

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!

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.

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, 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!!!

Dainty Note Cards!!!

Posted on

Sometimes you need just a little card to toss in with a gift or an item you are mailing out or to sneak on the desk of a co-worker! The dainty note cards in the Best Dressed Suite are PERFECT for that!!!

Dainty Note Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These little notecards have a splash of watercolor on them so they are a perfect base card. You can go elegant, playful, masculine, or feminine! It’s perfect.

Thoughtful Blooms Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used the Thoughtful Blooms Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set for all of these cards and it was super fun to mix and match the flower patterns. There is also a coordinating Sale-A-Bration Small Bloom Punch! Check out the other cards for even more fun flower patterns!

The little flowers in the background were stamped off once before stamping them on the card front. Then I stamped them a third time on the card for 2 lighter shades of Grapefruit Grove. I really love how you can get various shades from 1 ink pad.

Best Dressed Note Cards & Envelopes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Each of the card, I finished off with a few jewels. I used Glitter Enamel Dots for this one here. The Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots were used on the Grapefruit Grove card. The Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems were used on the first card! It’s so fun to mix and match!

Birthday Sparkles!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday! Happy back to normal….or at least I’m hoping! I’m a very routine girl so I’m ready to get back at it. Although I did really enjoy the down time! I thought I would start off with some birthday sparkles today. After all who doesn’t love bling and we all celebrate birthdays!!!

Birthday Sparkles, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is actually sort of a mini card. It still fits into a regular envelope but it’s 4″ x 4-1-1/4″. I cut the cardstock at 4-1/4″ (in half) and then at 8″ to fold in half. Something a little different!!!

My card base is Bermuda Bay and I layered on a piece (3-1/4″ x 4″) of the Lily Impressions Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3″ x 3-3/4″) and stamped the cake in Melon Mambo Ink. The cake is from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Right after stamping, I took the Wink of Stella Pen and colored over the flowers. This makes the ink bleed just a bit while adding the perfect amount of sparkle!

Coloring with Wink of Stella, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the perfect hint of pink and shimmer! After coloring this, I layered it onto the card front and added a few Champagne Rhinestones. You can also use some of the Peacock Rhinestones for different color options! I love them all!

Glittered Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the same set in the center and then did the top corner of the cake stamp in the bottom right corner. This gives the perfect flower coordination to the inside of the card. Of course, I colored it with some Wink of Stella too!

Golden Goddess!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I sure did! My Mom came yesterday and we stamped her Christmas Cards!!! It was so much fun and a good time to catch up! Today, I’m sharing another samples using the Christmastime is Here Suite. Check out this Golden Goddess!!!

Golden Goddess, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is just so elegant and beautiful! It would be perfect for a wedding card too!!! All white and gold and so amazing!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I embossed another piece of Whisper White with the Subtle Embossing Folder and added it to the front. Then with yet another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Christmas Rose in Gold Delicata Ink. Be sure to set it aside a bit to dry completely. I have found sometimes it smears if it isn’t fully dry. Once it is dry, I used the coordinating Roses Dies to die cut the rose and the greeting label. The greeting was also stamped in Gold Delicata!

Golden Rose, www.LaurasStampPad.com

To assemble, I flipped the rose over and added three little loops of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon. This stuff is just stunning! Using the Stampin’ Dimensionals to secure the ribbon and then all over the rest of the rose, I then added it to the card front! The greeting was also added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. You know me and my love for those things. To finish it off, I added a few Gold Glittered Enamel Dots! LOVE!!!!

Warmth & Love!!!

That’s what we all need this time of year – warmth & love! Am I right??? Well I hope this card brings it to all of you!!!

warmth & love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I’m so in love with the Christmastime is Here Suite. All of the amazing products are used in this card. The Stamps, coordinating Framelits, Gold Ribbon, Designer Paper, and Gold Enamel Embellishments are all part of it!

Here I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Then I layered on a piece of the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper (4″ x 4″). This means that you can get 9 cards from 1 sheet of the paper. Next, I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler at the top from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set and tied some of the ribbon around the card front.

Red Roses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the roses, I stamped them in Basic Gray and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and Old Olive were the colors I used! After die cutting it out, I added it to the card front and just trimmed off the part hanging over. To finish it off, I added some of the Gold Glittered Enamel Embellishments! STUNNING!!!
