I am all for a simple card design that can be used with many different colors, patterns, stamp sets, etc. This one is just that!!! Pick your favorite colors and designer paper! Grab a stamp set and your favorite punch/die and let’s get started!
I started with a Boho Blue card base. Next, I took a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of the 2023-2025 In Color Designer Paper and layered it onto Pebbled Path cardstock (1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″). This strip can be added in the middle of the card front or towards the bottom like mine above! Then I took the Circle Saying Stamp Set and the coordinating Circle Punch for the greeting! Add this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture! To finish it off, I added some ribbon and dots!
For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Basic White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. On opposing corners, I stamped the floral image in Boho Blue! I love how the flowers frame this piece and add a little bit of decoration! Don’t forget to stamp your envelopes as well!
Check out the supplies listed below so you can recreate this card. I challenge you to at least try out this simple card design with your stamping supplies! It’s simple and fabulous!!!
Pink is my favorite color and I just love flowers so this card makes me super happy! The Color & Contour Stamp Set has been on my desk a lot lately. This card could be made in every In Color with the supplies I used!!! Check out the list of items below so you can make some too!
I started with a Basic White thick cardstock base! When I create a card with the base of white or vanilla, I like to use the Thick Cardstock! Next, I took a piece of the In Color Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″) and wrapped some Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon around it. This ribbon comes in all 5 of the in colors! Adding just a small piece across the card front adds a little texture and fun to the card but no need for a bow and only uses a small amount!
For the focal point, I die cut one of the scallop rectangles from the coordinating Scalloped Contour Dies. LOVE THESE!!! The greeting was stamped in Polished Pink and then I added it to the card front!! The flower image was stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends! Then I die cut it out with the same Scalloped Contour Dies and added it to the label with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals!
For the inside of the card, I added a little leftover strip of the designer paper to the left hand side. Then using the little dots of the Color & Contour Stamp Stamp Set, I stamped them in the right hand corner. To get a little variation of color, I inked it up and stamped 3 times, moving the stamp around a bit.
I love this Color & Contour Bundle so much because it’s super versatile. This card could be created in any color you like too! Check out the supplies listed below to see what I used! If you want them all, click ADD ALL TO CART for quick and simple shopping!
Are you loving the NEW 2020-2022 In Colors as much as me??? Magenta Madness, Just Jade, and Misty Moonlight are my all time favorite colors right now!!! Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee are pretty good too but I think I will use them more this Fall! You all know I love bright colors! For now, check out these In Color Cards that I made!
These quick and simple cards were created with the Memories & More Card Collection as well as the Cards & Envelopes! It doesn’t get much more easy than that! Many of the cards have a greeting already on them so no stamping necessary. It’s perfect!!! You can see with the samples above I added a card from the Card Collection and embellished with ribbon and enamel dots! For the top 2, I actually stamped the greeting!
This fabulous card actually uses 2 of the cards in the pack. I used one as a background “designer paper” and the other one for my greeting! Then I added a few enamel dots for some texture! Quick and simple for sure!

Happy Monday!!! Today, I wanted to chat with you all about this card that I made. I created it late one night because lately that seems to be the only time I have for good creative thinking…aka after Claire goes to bed! This card came to me and I thought it was sort of funny!!! My jar is empty and my jar is full!!!
I asked my husband what he thought and if he got it. He said yeah but it’s kind of odd. What are your thoughts?? Let me know in the comments below!
Either way, I found this card quick and easy to create. I used the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes! These are super fabulous card bases that already have that fun dotted rectangle! Then I simply stamped on a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 3″. All of my stamping was done with Misty Moonlight. The water in the far was stamped off once for a lighter look!
The greeting is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and the jars are from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set! I added a bit of ribbon in the middle to give the card some texture and flare!
I hope that all of you have a Jar that is Full!!! Full is happiness, good health, and lots of love! These times are crazy and uncertain but there is still so much to appreciate and smile about. The days when we can’t get out and go to the park for a fun and different activity are frustrating for sure. I wanted to go to the zoo and experience so much this Spring and Summer. On the flip side though, my husband is working from home and able to spend more time with Claire and I. We get to watch her grow and learn and it’s just magical. Sure the tantrums aren’t but the smiles, new things she can do and say and so much more make it all worth it!
Find the joy in every day!! Also, always remember you all mean the world to me. I appreciate you all so much!

I may not be posting here as often as I was but always know I’m here for you!!! Since I have been doing Daily Dose of Stamping Therapy on my Facebook Page and things are all crazy with a juggling this new routine, I slowed down on posting here on my blog! I hope you all understand!
I made them with a regular card base measuring 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Next, I layered on a piece measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. That is the Whisper White or Blueberry Bushel layer in the samples above. These colors used are the retiring In Colors so I wanted to use up all of the supplies I have before they retire! Then I took some of the In Color Designer Series Paper to decorate and add some pattern to the card! The stamp set I used is the Artfully Aware which is also retiring. I’m sad about that one and might keep this set a bit longer!
Don’t forget that all retiring items are while supplies last or June 2nd! Believe it or not that is coming up real soon!!! Click the items below to start shopping! If you spend $75 or more, you will also earn the Free Stamp Set of the Month!!!! Woot Woot!!!

These cards were made with the retiring In Colors and coordinating In Color Designer Series Paper which is already sold out! I then just added a greeting and embellished. Simple and fabulous!
The stamp set that I used for these cards is the Artfully Aware Stamp Set. That set is also retiring so grab it now before it is gone!

Another month of staying at home! Now is the time to make sure you are reaching out to friends and family. Send some happy mail and let others know you are thinking of them! Check out this cute “Cow’s It Going” card I made using the retiring stamp set Over the Moon!
These are just quick and simple cards using the retiring In-Colors of Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, and Grapefruit Grove. The card bases are 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and the designer paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″! Some of them I added an additional layer of cardstock and then layered designer paper measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. Then I just stamped and decorated with the Over the Moon Stamp Set!!!
These cows are just the cutest ever. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends. The cow doing the splits has crazy spots so when I colored that one in black she lost an eye. Check out the cards in the middle in the top photo for my little eye patch cows!
I have now sent all of these Cow’s It Going cards out as Happy Mail to friends and family to spread some happiness during this time of uncertainty. I urge you to do the same. Join me for Stampin’ Therapy on Facebook each week day! Get inspired and make some cards to send out!
Stampin’ Up’s NEW catalog is coming out in June! That means we need to make room for new stuff by retiring some of the current products!!! These items that are retiring are while supplies last so get them now!!
The 2018-2020 In Colors will be retiring in June. These supplies are while supplies last so they could be gone sooner! Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick are the color names! My favorite is Lovely Lipstick and I’ll be sad to see it go. I just love shades of PINK! If you have the ink pad, be sure to grab an Ink Refill so you can enjoy the color for even longer!!! Grab some coordinating cardstock, ribbon, and other fun embellishments too!
Another tip is that Stampin’ Up retires all of the designer paper in the catalog. There has been a time or 2 where they keep one pack again for another year but otherwise all of them go. Grab your favorites now before they are gone. You can also check out my One Sheet Wonders for great ways to use the paper!
