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! ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

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!

This card is so simple and yet feels so amazing. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most in our lives and this card is that. Check out this amazing painted poppies card!

Painted Poppies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card was made with the Note Cards & Envelopes Pack. I simply stamped the flowers and greeting in Memento Black Ink. Next, I colored in the flowers with Stampin’ Blends. Then I finished it off with some Crushed Curry Seam Binding tied around the entire card front. It’s that easy!!!

I used the Painted Poppies Stamp Set for the flowers and the greeting is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set. This is even a card that you could leave off the greeting completely or wait till you need the card and then stamp one. It’s just the classic card! Check out this card which is another great classic card option!

Coloring with Stampin' Blends, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Wonderful Woven Look!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a great weekend!!! Family time over here so it was amazing!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Today, I’m sharing this fun card with a wonderful woven look using the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder!!!

Wonderful woven look, www.LaurasStampPad.com

They call it Coastal Weave. What do you think it look likes? We had this discussion at class. Some said a basket or maybe chevron. Let me know in the comments what you think!

I got this card idea from the amazing, Sandy Carlson. It was so fabulous I just had to recreate it!!! I started with a Bermuda Bay card base. Next, I took another piece of Bermuda Bay (4″ x 5-1/4″) and embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. Then I added a piece of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to the lower half of the embossed piece and added some Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon along the seam. I secured the ends of the ribbon the back side with adhesive!

Coastal Weave Embossing Folder, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Then for the greeting, I used the Layering Circles Framelits for each layer. Punches also work great for the smooth circles! Next, I stamped the greeting from Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture on the card but also for a smooth look over the ribbon and embossing!

Blue Balloons, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Of course, I had to decorate the inside too! I used the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set for the balloons. To get that variation in color, I simply inked it up in Bermuda Bay and stamped it 3 times without ever going back to the ink. It’s fabulous!!!

Don’t forget that the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set is the free set of the month for orders of $75 or more. This is an exclusive offer through me! Sale-A-Bration is also still going on so you get a free Sale-A-Bration item for every $50 spent! Woot Woot! All kinds of free stuff! Check out the supplies below so you can get this wonderful woven look! For more ideas using this stamp set, click here and here!

Happy Monday!!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend because it’s Monday and it’s a fresh week! Let’s start it off right! Get your party hat on and let’s make this week amazing!!!

Get Your Party Hat, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I have been having a lot of fun with the Birthday Bonanza Suite. So much actually that the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set is the Free Stamp Set of the Month for a $75 order or more! Woot Woot!!!

For this card, I went super simple. I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. The fold of the card base is on the left. Next, I cut some of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper into a 4″ x 2″ strip. This even measurement means you can get 18 of these cards from 1 sheet of designer paper! Then I layered this piece onto some Bermuda Bay and ripped the right side for some texture. I added this to the left side of the card and tied some Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon around it (to the inside of the card).

Pom Pom Party Hat, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I punched out a Whisper White label using the Label Me Lovely Punch. Next, I stamped the greeting in Memento Black and the party hat in Bermuda Bay Ink. These images are from the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set. Then I punched out another label in Daffodil Delight and cut it in half. Adding one half to the top and another top the bottom, it makes the perfect layered look with the same punch! I added the greeting to the card front. Then to finish it off, I added a little pom pom with the Fine Tip Glue Pen!

Birthday Bonanza, www. LaurasStampPad.com

Of course, I had to put a little decor on the inside too! These images are from the same Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set! It’s perfect for a little kid’s birthday or even a kid at heart! ๐Ÿ™‚

Just Cut Off The Bottom!!!

Posted on

Now this might not sound like great advice for most things in life but when it comes to stamping, try it out! Just cut off the bottom of the cardstock for a whole new look! Check out this other card that I created by cutting off the bottom too!

Just Cut Off The Bottom, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I got the inspiration for this card from the amazing Sandy Carlson! Thank you so much, Sandy for sharing this beautiful card. I loved it and had to recreate it and changed up the greeting!!!

I started with a Bermuda Bay card base (7-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). This means that I cut off 1-1/4″ from the card front of the card base. Next, I layered on some of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper. The front piece measures 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and the little piece on the bottom measures 1″ x 5-1/4″. The little piece is technically on the inside of the card!

Lily Pad Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Whisper White piece on the inside measures 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″. I stamped the lily pad and greeting in Bermuda Bay Ink. The greeting is from the Thanks For The Laughs Stamp Set and the flower is from the Lovely Lily Pad Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set!

Lily Impressions Sale-A-Bration, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Now for the decoration on the front of the card. I started with tying some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the front flap to add a little bit of texture. Next, I added the Whisper White die cut stitched circle. I stamped the greeting at the top of the circle and added the flowers towards the bottom. The flowers were stamped with the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set and die cut with the coordinating Lily Pad Framelits! Just be sure to add adhesive to the top portion of these so that you aren’t sealing your card shut with adhesive on the portion hanging off the circle! For the dainty pink flower, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen!!!

I just love flowers and stamping with them makes me happy! If you want to try out this fun card and cut the bottom off your next card, check out the supply list below!

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!

Heart To Heart!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! This month is all about hearts because it’s Valentine’s….Day or Month! ๐Ÿ™‚ Whichever you prefer to go by works for me! There is nothing wrong with sharing love all month long or all year long for that matter! ๐Ÿ™‚ So today I’m sharing another heart to heart card!

Heart To Heart, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This card is perfect because it’s not screaming Valentine’s Day! I think it would be great for wedding, anniversary, just because, or even a Baby/Wedding Shower card! What occasion would you use this card for? Let me know in the comments below!

I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the heart image all over the background in Pool Party Ink. Then it’s just time for that beautiful layered focal point! First, I adhered a pink Heart Shaped Doily. Next, I stamped the doted heart in Pool Party Ink and the doily one in the center in Flirty Flamingo Ink. All of these images are from the Heartfelt Stamp Set and I used the coordinating punches too!

Vellum Sprigs, www.LaurasStampPad.com

After punching out the stamped heart, I punched out a Pool Party scalloped heart and layered them together. Then using the Sprig Punch, I punched out some Vellum cardstock. I attached these to the back of the Pool Party one with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added it to the card front! To finish it off I added a little bow made from Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it on!

Baby Shower or Bridal Shower Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

As I mentioned before how this card could be used for many occasions. Check out these 2 hearts with stamped greetings from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set! Replace the center focal point with one of these for a totally different card. OR do the same on the front and add the heart with the greeting to the inside! I love it!

If you would like to recreate this card, check out the supplies listed below! Don’t forget that every $50 spent during Sale-A-Bration means you earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! Woot Woot! Also if you would like to see more samples using these stamps, click here and here!

Happy Monday!!! I have decided I want to send out more cards just because. I would like to tell others I’m thinking of them or happy for them. We all love happy mail, right?? So today, I’m sharing some Monday Mail that I sent out just because!

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!!!

It Snowed!!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday! 1 more week till Christmas. I thought since it snowed this is a good card to share with you all! Now I’m chanting, let it melt! ๐Ÿ™‚

It Snowed, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is a quick card that I created with a little bit of stamping and punching. Punching out cardstock that is….I’m not a violent person. ๐Ÿ™‚

I started with a Shaded Spruce card base. Next, I stamped the snowflakes from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Pool Party all over a piece of Whisper White. Before laying it on the card front, I added some of the Let It Snow Designer Paper (2″ x 5-1/4″) across the lower part.

Red Ribbon, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Snowman Season Stamp Set in Real Red Ink. Then using the Timeless Label Punch, I punched it out and added Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. Before adding it to the card front, I placed a piece of the Real Red Ruched Ribbon down and added the greeting on top. This adds a little bit of texture to the card. Since this ribbon is so wide, tying it would make a large knot of your card so using it this way makes it nice and flat.

You can check out more samples like this by clicking here and here! Also, let me know in the comments below whether you are excited that it snowed or counting down the days till Spring??

Happy Stampin!
