Painted Poppies!!!

Posted on

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!

Fields of Lavender!!!

Posted on

Soft Spring breeze! Warm sun kissing your face! Birds chipping sweetly! Are you feeling amazing and relaxed?? I know I am and that’s why this fields of lavender card makes me so happy!!!

Fields of Lavender, www.LaurasStampPad.com

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

For the inside of the card, I added a little sprig of lavender!!! I feel like I could make lots of these with various greetings because it’s just so pretty! If you would like to recreate this fields of lavender card, check out the supply list below!

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!!!

Christmas Roses!!!

Posted on

Happy Tuesday!!! Today’s technique is a bit tricky…..stamping or coloring! Can you guess which one I did on these Christmas Roses?? Which one do you prefer??

Christmas Roses, www.LaurasStampPad.com

I am just loving the Christmas Roses Stamp Set that just came out this month! The image is stunning and so fun to color! The card above is actually colored rather than stamped with all of the coordinating images. While stamping was easy to do as the images are photopolymer, I found coloring to be more fun!

This card was created super quickly as I just stamped in the image in Basic Gray and then colored it with Stampin’ Blends. Next, I die cut it with the coordinating Roses Dies. After that, I added it to the card. The card base is Mossy Meadow with a piece of the Christmastime Is Here Designer Series Paper!!! While the Suite has a lot of gold in it, I decided to branch out and use some silver for the card.

Boo To You!!!

Posted on

Halloween is right around the corner so now is the time to start working on your Halloween Projects. That might be treat bags, cards, tags, or home decor. Today, I’m sharing with you a cute Boo To You card with little monsters!!! Thank you to Tamra Davis for the inspiration for this card!

Boo To You, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Just a little scary….and hairy…but also super cute!!! There are 3 monsters in the Boo To You Stamp Set so you can really have lots of fun with this card!

I started with a Terracotta Tile card base. Using the Boo To You greeting and the Terracotta Tile Marker, I inked up just the word “Boo” and stamped it all over the background. You could also stamp the entire image if you wish. Next, I die cut out a square Stitched Shape in Smoky Slate. Then I stamped the monster in Basic Gray and colored him with Stampin’ Blends Markers. I used Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie but you can do any color!

Creepy Monster, www.LaurasStampPad.com

Per my husband since I’m not a monster aficionado, I left the finger tips white and then added some Glitter Crystal Effects. Also, I added some to the eyeballs and teeth! Once complete, I layered this piece onto Black Foil Paper measuring 3″ x 4″. Next, I took a piece of Terracotta Tile Scallop Trim Ribbon and colored down the center with a Black Stampin’ Blends. This changes the ribbon completely for a fun spooky look. I love it. TIP: The color does bleed on the ribbon so be gentle and swipe close to the scallop trim and allow it to bleed to fill in. I added this to the bottom of the foil paper securing the ends of the ribbon on the back side with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added it to the card front.

For the greeting, I stamped it from the Boo To You Stamp Set and punched it out with the 1″ Circle Punch. Next, I layered it onto a Scallop Circle of Smoky Slate and added it to the card front.

Monster Card Insert, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside of the card, I stamped another cute monster and stamped the other greeting in the set. Aren’t they just precious?!?!?! If you would like to make a Boo To You card for the little monsters in your life, click the supplies listed below. Also, check out this fun sample too!

Little Miracle!!!

Posted on

Last week, I posted this sweet card for our neighbor. Oddly enough we just found out she is having a girl and I went with Rococo Rose for her card. 🙂 I have another little miracle baby card to share with you today! I’m just loving this set and the sweet images!

Little Miracle, www.LaurasStampPad.com

While this card does have coloring, it is still a very quick card to create! Changing the colors a bit based on the gender or the recipient’s favorite color would be sure easy to do!

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next, I took a piece of Balmy Blue and stamped the dots from the Wonderful Moments Stamp Set all around the edge. I stamped the dots in Balmy Blue for that subtle background look.

Then taking a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the pregnant girl in Basic Gray. I like using gray when I color because it’s a more subtle look rather than a bold outline. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored her in. Balmy Blue was used for her dress. Ivory for her skin tone and Bronze for her hair. The greeting was also stamped in Basic Gray. I layered this piece onto Soft Sea foam and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished off the card with some Basic Sequins!

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!

Snow Much Fun!!!

Posted on

In January, we shall have snow much fun….but for now I’m holding onto Summer! 🙂 How about you? Do you love snow or summertime? While we are enjoying the Summer sun and Fall leaves changing, we can still play with snow in our crafting!!! Check out these cuties!!!

Snow Much Fun, www.LaurasStampPad.com

This is the perfect kind of snowman because it comes out perfect no matter how much snow you get and you get to stay inside all warm!

I started with a Coastal Cabana card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Next, I cut 2 pieces of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. One is for the front and the other is for the inside of the card! Then I took a piece of Sparkle Glimmer Paper measuring 4″ long and as tall as you wish. I ripped the top side for a snowy slope look. TIP: Rip away from you for a cleaner look. Also, if you are struggling to rip it because of the thick plastic-y back, use you scissors to get it started. Place this on the Whisper White as a guide for where to stamp your snowman so he isn’t floating in the air.

Snowman Season, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The snowmen were stamped from the Snowman Season Stamp Set and in Basic Gray Ink for that more subtle look. For the bigger snowman, I stamped him onto scrap white and punched him out with the coordinating Snowman Builder Punch. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored in the buttons (Pumpkin Pie) and nose (Basic Black). I added the punched out snowman to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then using the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit, I added some warm and cozy felt pieces. To spruce up the other snowman, I added Shimmery Crystal Effects to the snowballs!

For the greeting at the top, I added a strip of Let It Snow Designer Paper and added the greeting from the Snowman Season Stamp Set. I stamped the greeting in Real Red and added some Holiday Rhinestones!

Heartwarming Memories, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the inside, I stamped the third snowman in the set in Basic Gray Ink. Using Stampin’ Blends, I colored him in! I also added the greeting in Real Red Ink. All the images are from the Snowman Season Stamp Set! It’s such a cute set! I love it!!!

Purple Monster!!!

Posted on

Happy Monday!!! It’s a new week and why not start it off with something super cute! This little purple monster is just the cutest thing ever. I know it is suppose to be creepy or scary but come on….it’s adorable! Don’t you think?

Purple Monster, www.LaurasStampPad.com

The instant I saw this little monster in the Boo To You Stamp Set, I had to have it. This little monster is perfect for kid cards, Halloween, and so much more! I pictured it in purple and orange right away. After creating this card, I thought a blue and green monster would be super cute too. What are some other color combinations??

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card base. Next, I layered on a piece of the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate next to the card fold. TIP: There is a very thin plastic cover over the acetate to keep it shiny. Be sure to peel this off before adding to your project. Have no fear if you forget because I did 20 of these cards before I knew about it. It looks just as perfect! I tied some Gorgeous Grape Striped Ribbon around the card and into a knot. This helps smooth out the look between the acetate and the cardstock.

Monster Halloween Card, www.LaurasStampPad.com

For the monster, I stamped him…or her…in Basic Gray Ink from the Boo To You Stamp Set. I like to use gray because it’s a lighter more subtle look for coloring. Using the Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends, I colored in the monster. Then I layered it onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the greeting, I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape from the Boo To You Stamp Set. After stamping it on Whisper White, I punched it out with the Timeless Label Punch and added it to the card front. I placed it on the right side and just trimmed off the excess. To finish it off, I added an orange rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestones Pack! It goes perfectly!
