In Color Cards!!!

Posted on

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!

In Color Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Flowers For Every Seasons Memories & More, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

If you would like to make these In Color Cards, just check out the supplies below! Use the greetings on the cards or stamp your favorite greeting! Feel free to tag me on Facebook as I would love to see you creations!!

My Jar is Full!!!

Posted on

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!

Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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!

Happy Stampin’

I’m Here For You!!!

Posted on

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'm here for you, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Here are some of the cards that I created on a Facebook Live – Daily Dose of Stamping Therapy! These cards are quick and simple to create and perfect for for right now!

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!!!

Happy Stampin’ and know I’m here for you!!!

Get Them Now, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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.

Pregnant???

Posted on

No, not me! My neighbor recently told us she was pregnant and of course we are super excited for them! I instantly had to make a fabulous card for them to congratulate them!

Pregnant, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Isn’t this the cutest card ever?!?! I just love the simplicity of the women standing there with her belly bump! It’s perfect!

I started with a Rococo Rose card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″) and stamped the pregnant lady in the lower right corner. I used Basic Gray Ink because I like that more subtle look when I’m coloring. The image is from the Wonderful Moments Stamp Set. Using the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends, I colored the lady’s dress. For her skin, I used Ivory Stampin’ Blends and Bronze for her hair!

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Once I was done coloring, I layered this piece onto a piece of Blushing Bride (4″ x 5-1/4″). Before adding it to the card front, I placed a piece of the Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon on the left. I just wrapped the ends to the back side and secured it before adding it to the card base.

For the greeting, I stamped it in Rococo Rose Ink onto scrap Whisper White. Then using the Timeless Label Punch and the Everyday Label Punch to punch out the greeting and layer it together. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! To finish off the card, I added a few Faceted Gems!

Card Insert, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside, I used one of the images in the stamp set to decorate! Simple yet fabulous, don’t you think?!?!? If you want to great this fabulous card for someone you know who is pregnant, check out the supplies listed below!

Lifting Others!!!

Posted on

We rise by lifting others!!! I just love this greeting. It is not only good for cards but would make a wonderful home decor piece! So inspiring and uplifting which is just what this world needs more of!!!

We rise by lifting others, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Blue and yellow are so fresh and fun and make this card brighter and fabulous! How would you feel if you got this card on a random Tuesday??? Let me know in the comments below!

I started with a Seaside Spray card base. Next, I cut 2 pieces of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″; one for the front and one for the inside! I added a strip of Pineapple Punch Designer Series Paper on the bottom for a little pattern and pop of color! Then I stamped the balloons and birds in Basic Gray and the clouds in Seaside Spray. These images are all from the Above the Clouds Stamp Set. Using the Pineapple Punch and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers, I colored in the hot air balloons!

For the focal point, I stamped the hot air balloon and basket on a scrap piece of Whisper White. I like to stamp in Basic Gray because it is a softer look that using Black. Coloring these balloons is so much fun because there are so many different looks for each balloon! There is a coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch (Bundle & Save 10%) which punches out the basket and the balloon. I added these to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture. The greeting – We Rise By Lifting Others – was stamped in a piece of Pineapple Punch and the banner tips were punched out with the Banner Triple Punch!

Blue Skies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I stamped some clouds and birds on the inside white piece to really pull everything together for this card! I just love the beautiful sky look!!!
