Hello Dear Friend!!!

Posted on

I love All Inclusive Kits because they are perfect for gifting to someone or for a beginner stamper to get their feet wet!! They come with everything you need to make the cards except scissors. The Hello Dear Friend Card Kit is my current favorite because of the flowers and the AMAZING GREETINGS!

Hello Dear Friend Stampin' Up All Inclusive Card Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love the greetings so much for #happymail cards or even thank you notes. My favorite actual card from the bunch is the mini purple thank you card! There is just something about the flower bunch in front of what looks like a window that I love!!!

Easy Mini Thank You Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Don’t you think it looks like a church window or something??? I just love it and it’s super simple. TIP: Be sure to stamp the greeting up high so that it fits. As you can see in my sample, the Y cuts off a bit at the bottom!

#happymail Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is my 2nd favorite because that greeting makes me smile!!! TIP: Add adhesive to the middle and lower left corner of the vellum so it will be covered up with the flowers and greeting! The purple flower was adhered on the card flat but the pink and yellow one are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals!

This card is quick and simple. The perfect size for a little note to drop with an item on someone’s porch, desk, or even hand it to them! Just a little something to brighten your day! Who wouldn’t love that?!?!?

Flowers & Diamonds Greeting Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I created this card with the vellum diamond both up and down. Honestly, I couldn’t really tell the difference like it should be one way or the other. It looks amazing both ways and the flower and greeting sort of take away from the fact that it’s a diamond shape!

Which one is your favorite?? Let me know in the comment below! If you would like to see me create all of these cards, check out this video! I’ll be honest evenings and this pregnancy made my stamping a bit of a hot mess but not every stamping session is perfect! LOL

Christmas Gift Idea 2020, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Aren’t these cards beautiful?!?!?! And look at that fabulous gold foil and decorated box!!! I love it all and think I will enjoy crafting these kits and giving them as gifts!

Get Well Purple Posies Card Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is my favorite card. That ribbon wiggled back and forth under the greeting is super cool and it was easy to do!

Homemade Card Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is my second favorite card because I love the detail on that greeting banner. It’s so detailed and really makes it pop! I think I could have passed on the ribbon behind the greeting but I followed the directions as is!

Greeting Card Craft Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is just stunning with all of the flowers and that fabulous gold foil bling! I found that putting the purple twine bow below the greeting made it pop more without getting in the way!

Give the Gift of Cards, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Just because I’m posting these cards last doesn’t mean I don’t like them. I love them all. I did 2 of these cards with the twine behind the greeting and 2 without. I’m honestly not sure which one I prefer. Mixing it up is always fun though! What do you think?

If you are looking for great Christmas Gift Ideas, take a look at card kits! You can gift them all created or gift all inclusive kits so the recipient can enjoy crafting too. Better yet, give the gift with a certificate of time with you to create it together. Spending time together, talking, laughing, and making memories is the best gift of all…..in my opinion!

Pajama Party!!!

Posted on

Good morning and happy Monday!!! Why are pajamas so comfy and fabulous?? I’m guessing because no one typically seems them so they are the most comfortable, soft, worn clothing ever. Or maybe it’s because they remind us of sleep and relaxing. Who knows but I am bringing that fabulous feeling to stamping. We are having a PAJAMA PARTY!!!

Pajama Party, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, Thursday, July 23rd at 8 p.m. CT, let’s all gather together on a Facebook Live and stamp in our cozy pjs!!! This is a little segment I like to call Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy!

During the Pajama Party next week, I will be creating the Simply Citrus All Inclusive Kit which has a total of 15 cards – 3 each of 5 designs! Since this kit is all inclusive, that means it comes with everything you need except scissors! Anyone can create it! There are directions in the kit but of course I will creating it Live so you can always ask questions then as well!

All Inclusive At Home Card Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These cards are so bright and fresh looking! The greetings are perfect for any occasion. Many of them are generic which is what I have been using the most lately. Just a little note to drop in the mail to someone saying I am thinking of them or wanted to brighten their day! #Happymail

You might not be able to see them very well in these photos but there are little vellum flowers that add a fabulous texture and flare to each of these cards. If you wanted a more masculine look, you could always leave them off too!

I can’t wait to create the rest of this kit with all of you on my Facebook Live Pajama Party on July 23rd at 8 p.m. CT!

March 2020 Paper Pumpkin!!!

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!

This one is my favorite! I love the soft subtle colors because that makes it perfect for a baby boy or girl! Heck, it just says tiny miracles so that could be a new puppy, kitten, or even a small step in the right direction in life!

This one is my second favorite card! I just love color combination. That linen thread with the large bow behind the greeting is kind of cool. That’s how the instructions said to do it and I like it! Another fabulous way to add ribbon to cards!

My heart can't stop smiling, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I love this greeting so much! It is just the cutest greeting ever and works for so many occasions! The simple blue with that hint of foil is just perfect!

Three Cheers for You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the Love of Felt!!!

Posted on

Stampin’ Up does some amazing Project Kits! These are perfect for gift giving because some some all inclusive meaning all you need is scissors. Some are more detailed and some require the purchase of additional supplies like stamps and ink. The awesome thing about the ones that don’t come with stamps and ink is that you can purchase multiples to make for gifts and not end up with 5 stamp sets. All inclusive are good to give the entire thing and the others are perfect for making and gifting or enjoying yourself! The For the Love of Felt Kit is fun to make and give!

For the Love of Felt, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This kit is super cute with 3 designs of cards, 4 each. The envelopes have a pretty green pattern on the back lip and the front has a cute box to write the address or name in! All of this fits into a little card box that coordinates. It scream gift box! Actually I think the box looks like a cute recipe box but either way I love it!

Felt Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This was the hardest card of the set I think! There are lots of details and layers and flowers! I would almost suggest doing this one last because it also has a ton of pieces. I did it first and was counting out all the pieces to make sure I wasn’t using them all up. If it was the last set, you wouldn’t have to worry about that. First, I stamped the leaves on all 4 corners. Then I built up the outside and worked my way to the big flower in the middle. This means I did the little blue and yellow ones at the top and the coral and blue off to the left and then slowly worked my way to the main focal point. For the leaves, I used Mini Glue Dots to secure them.

Stampin' Up Project Kit, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card was the easiest one. I whipped these 4 together really fast. Stamp, stamp, glue, glue! For the felt flowers, I used Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.

Bouquet of Flowers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

These cards I did a little different for each one….a little on purpose! So, the first card I did (top left), I finished it and realized I forgot the thread. So I nailed it on the second card (top right) and wasn’t so sure I liked it. The thread went right over the coral flower. For the next card, I did the thread vertical (bottom left) and really liked that one. On the last card, I thought I might as well try another option just to see so I went with a little bow. Following the direction is fun but doing your own thing is even more fun!

Which card is your favorite?? Let me know in the comments below. Also, let me know if you like getting handmade greeting cards for a gift or giving handmade greeting card as a gift.

This fabulous card has no stamping on it at all. I used the large card from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Collection.
