Is this not the cutest card ever?!?!? Those ladybugs are adorable and super fun to stamp and color. There is also coordinating dies to have them cut out so you can pop them up too!

Flying Ladybug, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I used a Real Red card base and layered on a piece of Basic Black. The black is embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder! Next, I took a strip of Whisper White measuring 1-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped the greeting in the center. Before adding it to the card front, I added cut pieces of Pearlized Doilies to either side!

Then I stamped the ladybugs on Whisper White and die cut them out. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored the bugs! I went with Dark Real Red and Dark Poppy Parade because I wanted a bit of variation in color. The bellies were colored with Dark Smoky Slate. Next, I added the ladybugs to the card…with Stampin’ Dimensionals of course. To finish it off, I added some Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the line of little ladybugs which are just the cutest ever. I colored them the same! This card turned out so precious and I love it! Be sure to get this set before it is gone!

Try Out Double Stamping!

Posted on

You all know how much I love flowers so the more the better, right?!? Check out this fun double stamping technique to have more flowers on your card!!!

Double Stamping, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Pretty Peacock card base and layered on another piece that was embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. This adds subtle texture to the card. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3″ x 3-1/2″. This is the piece I am going to double stamp on with the Tags In Bloom Stamp Set! Be sure to stamp with the label centered and the flowers in the upper left corner. Then flip the piece around and line up the label to stamp again for flowers on the other side. Photopolymer stamps makes this super easy!

I colored in the flowers with Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends! Then for the greeting, I used the stamps from the Tags In Bloom Set and punched it out with the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch. I added it to the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a fabulous layered look! Next, I layered it onto some Daffodil Delight and added it to the card front. I went for an off set look just to go with someone different!

Tags In Bloom, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I added some flowers and another greeting from the Tags In Bloom Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st! This set is super fun and fabulous so I highly recommend it!!! 🙂

Coloring Foil Paper!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! You all know that means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! I’m coloring foil paper to really make this amazing Flowering Foil Designer Paper shine!!!!

Coloring Foil Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I just love how this card turned out! It’s so pretty and that color combination is fabulous – Highland Heather and Mint Macaron!

There are different ways to color the Flowering Foil Paper but you can also leave it as is with the white and foils! I colored with both sponge daubers and Stampin’ Blends. I prefer the Stampin’ Blends because I really like the clean look!

Sponge Daubers vs Stampin' Blends, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The piece on the right was done with all Sponge Daubers. The flower (Highland Heather) was really easy to do. The leaves (Mint Macaron) got a bit trickier as they come to a point and Sponge Daubers don’t have as precise of a point. Then when it came to doing those little buds (Calypso Coral) it got really messy. In order to make it look less messy, I filled in around the flowers with some Pool Party. It’s not horrible but not clean looking either. For the one on the left, I used Sponge Daubers for flowers and leaves and then Stampin’ Blends for the buds. I loved how that looked so then I did the 3rd one with all Stampin’ Blends and that’s the one I used on my card!

Flowering Foil Designer Series Paper, www.LaurasStampPad.com

After coloring it, I layered it onto Highland Heather and then onto the Mint Macaron card base! I used the Tags in Bloom Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and Label Me Fancy Punch for the greeting! It’s perfect for any occasion! Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends a week from today!!! Also, my Free Stamp Set of the Month for this month is Full of Happiness. You will get this set for free when you order $75 or more before tax and shipping!

I'm here for you, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The Gangs All Meer is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that you can earn for Free with a $50 order. This set is just adorable with the little meerkats and lizard. I love it!

I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I took a piece of Seaside Spray and embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. Then I took a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 3″ x 3-3/4″ and stamped the meerkats up top and the greeting down low in Soft Suede Ink. Using the Soft Suede Light Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored in the meerkats. They are just so adorable!!!

Gangs All Meer, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I layered this piece onto some Crumb Cake. Using the Seaside Spray Scalloped Linen Ribbon, I added some across to separate the greeting and the focal image. This also gives a little bit of texture. Then I added this piece to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a few Seaside Spray Faceted Dots!

Little Lizard, www.LaurasStampPad.com

On the inside, I added a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Down in the corner, I stamped the little lizard in Soft Suede Ink. Using Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow, I colored him in. For the “All of Us” greeting, I actually stamped that and masked the “for”. I wanted it to read that we are all here for you….all of us!

Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration ends next Tuesday! Now is the time to stock up on your supplies so you can earn FREE stuff too.

Berry Sweet & Simple!!!

Posted on

This card style is perfect for any occasion! The basic colors make it easy to swap a color in or out for your liking. It’s just so berry sweet and simple!!!

Berry Sweet & Simple, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am just loving this layout and how interchangeable it is!! I used the Witty-cisms Stamp Set which has lots of greeting/image variety!

For the card base, I used Smoky Slate cardstock. Next, I took 3 strips of scrap paper in Basic Black (1″), Whisper White (1″), and Silver Glimmer Paper (3/4″) and punched them with the Banner Triple Punch. This is a great way to use up scraps. Also, you can snip off the length you need, punch it again and keep going to make lots of this card style.

For the focal point, I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for those adorable scallop stitched rectangles. You can use whichever size fits your image. I went with Real Red and Whisper White for this one to match the berry. I stamped the image from Witty-cisms in Memento Black Ink and then colors it with Stampin’ Blends. Then I layered these together and then added them to the card front over the ends of the banner strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals! This gives a smooth look but also some texture to the card!

Strawberry, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I used the Stampin’ Write Markers to color just the strawberry image. Then I stamped it in the corner of a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) for the inside of the card!

Meerkat Silhouette Sunset Card!!!

Posted on

The cuteness factor: HIGH! The amazing view factor: HIGH! Fun technique factor: HIGH! This Meerkat Silhouette Sunset card is just adorable and I’m going to share with you how to make it!!!

Meerkat Silhouette Sunset Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I started with a Mango Melody card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the lizard in the corner and added it to the card front. I just had to add him to the card because he’s adorable!

Sunset, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Next, I took a piece of Whisper White and stamped the meerkats on there in Memento Black Ink. Then using the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker, I colored them all in. Then I placed a 1-1/2″ scrap circle over the center of the card. It should cover up some of the meerkats. Starting with Mango Melody, I sponged the color around the circle making sure it didn’t move. Next, I took a Daffodil Delight Sponge Dauber and colored the rest of the way out, making sure to blend the colors together. Be sure to go over the meerkats so the color gets everywhere. Now you have that fabulous sunset and silhouette look.

In order to make the meerkats not look like they were floating, I took a scrap piece of Basic Black and ripped it along the top. Then I placed this under the meerkats and trimmed off the excess. This layer was added to a Basic Black piece of cardstock before adding it to the card front. This makes the image pop more!!

Happy Birthday To A Stand-Up Friend, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the greeting, I stamped it in Mango Melody Ink. All of these images are from the Sale-A-Bration Gangs All Meer Stamp Set. Woot Woot for free stamps! Using the Label Me Lovely Punch, I layered these images today. I just trimmed off pieces of the punched image to get a different look. Check out this video on that! I’m still debating on where I want to add a few rhinestones either above the lizard or on either sides of the greeting. The yellow/orange ones in the Holiday Basics Rhinestone Pack would work perfectly!

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!!!

While this card is super simple, it’s just so amazing! The stamp set is called Beautiful Moments and there are 3 images with people in them as well as a few decorative images and greetings! It’s perfect! I’m in love!

I started with a Whisper White card base and stamped the greeting in Basic Gray in the lower right corner! Next, I added a strip of Highlight Heather that I ran through the Curls & Swirls Embossing Folder. Then for the focal point, I die cut out a Stitched Rectangle! This added a little more texture to the card!

Beautiful Moments Stamp Set, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I stamped this image in Basic Gray because I like that softer look! Then using Stampin’ Blends, I colored everything in!!! You could always use different colors. Heck, I don’t even know if that is lavender but that’s what I’m going with! Is it lavender? Let me know in the comments below!

Stampin' Blends Markers, www.LaurasStampPad.com

What Do You Stamp With When Coloring???

Posted on

Today, I have another one of Laura’s Quick Tips to share with you! This came from a question I got from my Facebook Page. The question was what do you stamp with when coloring??

What Do You Stamp With, www.LaurasStampPad.com

My answer this question is Basic Gray! That is what I prefer to use when I am coloring with Stampin’ Blends or Watercoloring. I find that Basic Gray has a soft subtle look verses a bold black look. This is just my opinion so you can use what you would like. Check out these photos to see both options! Let me know which you prefer in the comments below!

Warmth & Love!!!

Posted on

That’s what we all need this time of year – warmth & love! Am I right??? Well I hope this card brings it to all of you!!!

warmth & love, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I’m so in love with the Christmastime is Here Suite. All of the amazing products are used in this card. The Stamps, coordinating Framelits, Gold Ribbon, Designer Paper, and Gold Enamel Embellishments are all part of it!

Here I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Then I layered on a piece of the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper (4″ x 4″). This means that you can get 9 cards from 1 sheet of the paper. Next, I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler at the top from the Christmas Rose Stamp Set and tied some of the ribbon around the card front.

Red Roses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the roses, I stamped them in Basic Gray and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede and Old Olive were the colors I used! After die cutting it out, I added it to the card front and just trimmed off the part hanging over. To finish it off, I added some of the Gold Glittered Enamel Embellishments! STUNNING!!!
