I’m loving these spring pastels! They are the perfect pop of color I need during these cloudy cold winter months! 🙂 The texture and dimension on this card really brings it to life too! It’s so fabulous!

I used the Stamparatus for the lines on either side which I also did on the inside to match! The Stamparatus took all the guess work and hoping and praying out of it for me. I knew that each one would be lined up perfectly!

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!

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.

Check out the supplies below so you can start earning these goodies and make a card with hearts & flowers!

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!

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!

Which one of these dainty note cards is your favorite??? Let me know in the comments below! If you would like to recreate these or make a few new designs, click on the supplies listed below! Remember that every $50 spent earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!
