Simply Sunday: Simple Wonder

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have one more Christmas card that I created using the Wonder of the Season Memories and More card pack. This cute card couldn’t be simpler to make ….

The printed bells card was trimmed down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ … then I stamped the greeting onto the card. The greeting comes from the stamp set Cherish the Season.

Now it was time to take our Silver Bells to the next level … just grab your Wink of Stella to highlight the bells, it’s magical.

The Wink of Stella adds a beautiful shine to the bells, but I couldn’t stop there … I added the Glitter Crystal Effects to the berries … it added a nice texture to the card and really made them stand out.

To finish off the card … I secured the card to the Real Red card base with the Stampin’ Dimensionals. Super simple to make but oh so pretty.

I thank you for joining me today. I hope your Sunday is a good one.

Believe in the Wonder of the Season …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another cute card created with the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card pack. This time I’ve teamed it up with the Cherish the Season stamp set. You would think these two were meant for each other!

I used the Gold Foil sheets as a base to the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack … it really shows off the pretty gold in the card. I also used the gold to die cut the pretty bells from the Cherish the Season bundle.

The die cut bells actually cut out the holly images however I chose to keep the images intact and put a little scotch behind it to hold it together.

On the smaller bell, I let the holly image cut out and then put a scrap piece of Old Olive behind it. Then it was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The stars and the “believe” came from the sticker sheet that comes from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack . To finish off the card I added three Red Rhinestones … it adds dimension and a nice tie in to the red on the card.

Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my blog. It is truly appreciated! I hope this gives you a better look at the Wonder of the Season Memories & More card pack. I’ll have one more card to share with you tomorrow.

Have a beautiful day!

Wonder of the Season …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m thrilled … it’s Friday, and I have a great new product to share with you today. Whether your a scrapbooker or card maker, you can simplify your craft with our Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack.

You’ll get 48 double-sided printed cards you can use for quick Christmas or winter card fronts, pocket scrapbooks, and more. The card pack also includes 8 sheets of stickers to further embellish your projects.

I like using these card packs for quick cardmaking … I used one of the 4 x 6 inch cards and trimmed it down to highlight it’s shape and greeting …

My base is Whisper White but covered with the Tis the Season Designer Series paper… it brings out the colors from our card. Behind it is another piece of Whisper White that was embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.

So the front piece is actually a card from the Wonder of the Season Memories and More Card pack ….

I fussy cut all around the greeting and the foliage on the card. I added the Red Rhinestones for some added texture and to bring in the red color from the designer paper.

I actually highlighted the greeting with some Wink of Stella, it just really added a holiday flair to the card. Super simple to make and the results from using these cards is amazing … I’ll be sharing more of these in the next couple of days.

Hope today’s post inspired you to take the Memories and More kits beyond your scrapbook pages and get even more value by creating cards with it as well.

Thank you for joining me today. Enjoy your weekend.Join me for a sneak peek at some amazing items in the upcoming Spring & Sale-a-bration catalogs.

Simple Shaker Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Shake it, Shake it baby … oooh, oooh!! I am excited to share with you today to cards that I created for my Technique Tuesday, Facebook LIVE. I’m sharing a super simple way to make Shaker Cards that I saw at my OnStage event last weekend.

The demonstration was done by fellow demonstrator Rosemarrie Gonzalez. She shared a really fun new suite with Ice Cream cones and Popcicles … your going to love it! But until then, let me know you the technique. Sit back for a few minutes and watch my Facebook LIVE from last night. Just click on the image below to watch the video …

Isn’t that a cool idea … using clear envelopes to create shaker cards. So quick and easy!! I had so much fun making the cards. You begin with your 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ card base scored at 4-1/4″ … fold in half. Your designer paper will be cut 4″ x 5-1/4″ – you could put some cardstock behind it if your want it a little sturdier for tying bows.

On this card I used the Trimming the Town Suite … I’ve used the designer paper and the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo. The Snowflake Sequins are encased in the Clear Envelope.

The sweet little greeting comes from the Little Treats stamp set from the Little Sweets Bundle.

I had some die cut pieces left over from our Holiday Catalog & Virtual Retreat Party and used them on the inside of the card. They are die cut from the designer paper!

My next card is made for my daughters December birthday, and features the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.

I began with a Highland Heather base and then slide my Feels Like Frost into the Clear Envelope before sprinkling in the Snowflake Sequins in. I was amazed at the change in the sequins … it picked up the color from the designer paper.

The ribbon was the fun part and accented the stunning paper, beautifully! I used the Layered Circle die and the stitched edge die from the Warm Hugs bundle.

When I trimmed the designer paper down to 4″ x 5-1/4″ … I used a piece of the scrap on the inside of the card. The Metallic Edge Ribbon is easily dyed with the Stampin’ Blends. You can also use our regular markers or even your ink refills!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how easy it is to create the fun and beautiful cards. Don’t forget you can even embellish the outside a little too!!

Thanks so much for hanging out with me today. Hope you were inspired to create “Shaker Cards” like I was when I saw it. I have listed the items used in the cards for your convenience.

Have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Feels Like Frost 5 Minute Card …

Hello, Hello, Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you today? It is a bright sunny day here in Wisconsin … 68 degrees in November is sure to bring a smile on your face!! I have something else that will bring a smile to your face … a stunning Christmas card that will only take minutes to make!

Have you seen the Feels Like Frost Designer Series paper? Oh my … it’s beautiful! Stunning images on one side and silver foil designs on the other.

This only gives you a glimpse of the paper but I hope you get a picture of this, otherwise click on the link below and you will be able to see them close up.

Now lets get to that stunning and simple card that I created in minutes…

I began with the Misty Moonlight for my card base, which looked great with the pattern I chose. The snowy scene is like looking at a photograph.

I chose the Festive Corners for my greeting … it is so much fun to add to a card, yet the sweet font really adds beauty to the card. This was stamped with the coordinating Misty Moonlight.

The Feels Like Frost designer paper was trimmed down and matted with Whisper White to set the card off and help highlight those snowflakes.

Speaking of snowflakes … I highlighted them with the amazing “Elegant Faceted Gems”. They add a little sparkle and dimension to your card. And speaking of sparkle ….

Can you see the sparkly Metallic Mesh Ribbon (from the Magic in this Night Suite) this pretty bow is tied around the tree line in the card and really pulls your eye into that area … so pretty!

How amazing is this card and it only took around 5 minutes to create. Super … Simple … Stunning! These are the kind of cards I love. We all get a little busy, so it fits perfect into my schedule. (I still like some fussy cards too)

Hope today’s card inspired you to dig out some of your pretty paper and make some quick cards. Or if you have to have the Feels Like Frost … just click on the link below and it will take you to my online store.

Thank you for hanging out with me today! Hope you have a warm and wonderful day!

Ho Ho Ho … Look at the Snow!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

They say third time is a charm, so today is my third and last (for now) in my series of cards from the Trimming the Town Suite Collection. Today I’ll be using the dies from the bundle with focus on the Trimming the Town designer paper.

Our back ground is Pool Party and Snow … well, Whisper White cut into hills of fluffy layers of snow.

The dies not only cut out the stamped images but they also cut the house images on your designer paper … now that is what I call extra value.

I have another great tip that will bring even more value to your bundle … when cutting out the images on your designer paper (yes, you can cut out the trees too!) Don’t forget to cut the partial images as well … this is what I used, and hid them behind the snow!!

With our partial buildings and trees deep in the snow banks, I couldn’t help but add those sweet little Adhesive-backed Snowflakes.

This next picture shows a spattering of the “Wink of Stella” … this is done by tapping it onto a marker or such…

Just a reminder ….

When you purchase the Coming Home Stamp set individually or as part of the bundle or suite … $3 will be donated to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility. You can help make a difference in the lives of those affected.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Have a great day ~

From My Home to Yours …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today is the second in my series of cards from the Trimming the Town Suite Collection. Today I’ll be using the dies from the bundle along with the designer paper.

The Trimming the Town designer series paper is the backdrop to the card … with the forest of trees and a sprinkling of snow, it’s the perfect setting for my cabin.

I stamped my cabin on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Momento ink and then colored it with the Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends. I also used the Real Red for the Door and So Saffron for the Windows.

The snow was cut from the die included in the Coming Home Bundle… The greeting comes from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set.

The “Warm Wishes” greeting fits perfectly in this serene setting. I have fallin’ in love with this bundle… besides being an amazing bundle/suite, you can make a difference with the purchase of the set …

When you purchase the Coming Home Stamp set individually or as part of the bundle or suite … $3 will be donated to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility. You can help make a difference in the lives of those affected.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to visit me and learn about this opportunity to help others. Please let me know if you have any questions …. I am available to help.

Have yourself a wonderful day ~

Wednesday Wow: Poinsettia Petals Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed the video yesterday, as I’m back today with the stunning card featured in the video. My attendee’s were so excited with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty paper from that product showcase that I carried it into the Poinsettia Petals showcase … the results were nothing short of amazing!!

We’ll begin with our card base … Pretty Peacock which coordinates with our Brightly Gleaming Specialty Paper; enhanced with a mat of Copper Foil.

The focal point of our card is the stunning poinsettia embossed and cut with the specialty dies included in the Poinsettia Petals Bundle! I also hope you caught my tip on how to keep your dies aligned (it’s in the video).

It’s easy to see the beautiful texture and dimension these dies can created. And we finished off our poinsettia by adorning the center with the “Elegant Faceted Gems”… they are more stunning in person as they have a champagne color to them which really complements the Copper Foil Poinsettia.

Our poinsettia sits upon a piece of Very Vanilla cut from the Tasteful Labels dies and stamped in Pretty Peacock. Don’t ever be afraid of mixing and matching your bundles … they really can enhance your stamping experience.

For those of you who missed the LIVE presentation, don’t fret … I will be hosting another “All Day Stamp Party” on November 28th, 2020 – Small Business Saturday! I will have LIVE demonstrations, deals, prizes and a full day of fun!!

Thank you for joining me today,

Have a great day!

A Magical Transformation …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you got a chance to see yesterday’s card … the Poinsettia Place Suite and featured the Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper. I shared how easy it was to color the flocking on the paper so you could expand the use of your paper.

I thought it would be fun to see how different colors transform the look of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper...

I used 1-3/4″ squares of each of the three patterns of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper and then backed it with a 1-7/8″ mat of Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow.

I then stamped the greeting in Night of Navy onto a piece of Whisper White and ran it through the Stampin’ Die Cut and Emboss machine using the Subtle embossing folder ….

The blocks were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and arranged onto the card, and then to complete my card, I added the blue Rhinestones from Holiday Rhinestones.

I hope you will be joining me and your fellow stamping enthusiasts at my Holiday Catalog Virtual Retreat Party. Bring your friends along with you! Enjoy in the comfort of your own home! (Information below).

Coloring Flocked Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Wednesday!! Today I’d like to share with you my card and video of the technique I shared LIVE last night on Facebook. The technique is “Coloring Flocked Paper” … and I used the beautiful Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper from the Poinsettia Place Suite.

Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite tea and sit down and relax while you watch this short video on how to color the flocked specialty paper….

When pictures are a thousand words … then videos hit the jackpot! I love being able to show and tell you how to make cards. The base was cut 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4 to fold in half. The Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper with the scrolls was cut 4″ x 5-1/4″.

The poinsettia was trimmed from the paper and the die cut with the coordinating die from the Poinsettia Bundle. The greeting also comes from the bundle and was die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The stunning Beaded Pearls are part of the entire product suite … you will find the Poinsettia Place Suite on pages 14 through 16 in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

I will be sharing another card with you tomorrow that features the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. I will also be highlighting the Poinsettia Place Suite at my Holiday Catalog Virtual Retreat Party. I hope you plan on joining me (see information below).

Christmas Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We made it through Monday!! I have a beautiful card to share with you that I have created while working on my Holiday Catalog Virtual Retreat Party. Today’s card features the Arrange a Wreath Bundle and Toile Christmas stamp set.

Beautiful layers of Seaside Spray and Whisper White cardstock are the base colors for the card. To create a “wintery” look, I used the Old World Paper 3-D embossing folder and added a touch of Wink of Stella onto the raised areas.

My wreath pieces were cut in Seaside Spray, Silver Foil and Whisper White … these were layered together and secured with the Tombo Liquid Glue. The Seaside Spray leaves have Wink of Stella on them and then they were all popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to create more depth to the card.

I stamped the greeting which comes from the Toile Christmas and cut it out with the Christmas Cardinal dies. The banner has Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back for a lift over the wreath. To complete the card I added Adhesive Backed Snowflakes.

So what do you think about todays card? I’m hoping you enjoyed it … there will be a “Special” announced on during my Holiday Catalog Party for the Arrange a Wreath Bundle …. this will include the PDF / Full Color instructions to create 4 beautiful All Season Cards!

A Treat Box for Every Reason …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing some cute treat / gift boxes that are super easy to make! These boxes will be celebrating Halloween, Christmas and a time for friends. One 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper will make 2 boxes. Once you start making these boxes … you’re going to want more paper!

This very first box was created with the Forever Greenery Product Suite. The cute little stitched circle die cut comes from the Heartwarming Hugs bundle and the leaves were cut directly from a wreath cut using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle.

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and join me while I take you step by step creating this simple box …

So easy right? I will also be sharing the dimensions with you, as promised in the video. I thought it would be fun to share the box made in this video along with the card I made in last weeks video. You can find all my videos on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape YouTube Channel … please subscribe while you are there 🙂

The next little treat box celebrates Christmas … I used the Heartwarming Hugs Product Suite. With so many amazing papers in this package, it was hard to choose one … hope you like it!

The “For You” badge was fun to make … first I stamped it in Real Red on Whisper White and die cut it with this die that cuts out the center as well. The cool die that mats the circle is a fun shape to work with. The tree was stamped in Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz.

I wrapped a ribbon around the top and tied a bow on … you don’t always need a handle! The next treat box I want to share is my Halloween one …

My Oh My … I had fun with this one!! I wrapped the top and created the handle with Pretty Peacock cardstock … along with a piece die cut with the fun shape from the Heartwarming Hugs! Using that die I also cut a piece from the Black Glitter paper… together they make a fun design behind the greeting.

I blinged out the handle with more of the Black Glitter paper and those lovely Iridescent Pearls. The next treat box was created with the same Magic in this Night suite … No handle!

This one was created with the help of the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin. The greeting, the hat, the flower and the mini doily are all from the Paper Pumpkin kit! I’ll be sharing more about the upcoming Paper Pumpkin soon.

Here are the dimensions for our treat / gift box ….

I hope you have enjoyed today’s project share … they were really fun to make. I wasn’t kidding when I said that once you start making them that you’ll want more paper ….

Don’t forget that 15 of our designer papers are 15% Off until the 31st of this month. The deadline is coming up soon. Let me know if you need any help placing your order.

Thank you for joining me today …

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Means More

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I shared the “I Believe” card (shown below) and today I’d like to share another card that I made during World Cardmaking Day using the same simple design.

I began with a Whisper White card base and 4″ x 6″ sheet of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer paper. I scored the designer paper at 5-1/4″ and folded the pretty polka dot side over onto the top of my plaid paper… No cutting!

Instead of using a piece of cardstock, I used another piece of the Heartwarming Hugs designer paper …

These fun designer papers look so great together and add such a fun core to the card. I’ve added the Silver Edge Ribbon to add a touch of bling to the card.

The focal point of my card is the Christmas Means More stamp set …

This is such a fun stamp set and really works well with any of our Holiday Designer Papers.

I did not get my video made yesterday but I will share it with you as soon as it’s done… and I’ll demonstrate how easy the cutting and embellishing the card is.

Thanks for coming back today … I’ll be back tomorrow this another pretty card.

Simply Sunday: Designer Paper Fun

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share a sweet -n- simple card that I made during World Cardmaking Day last weekend. It’s simple design makes it easy to create multiple cards … and with Christmas coming, that’s a good thing!

I began with a Whisper White card base and 4″ x 6″ sheet of the Heartwarming Hugs Designer paper. I scored the designer paper at 5-1/4″ and folded the pretty polka dot side over onto the top of my plaid paper… No cutting!

I found a piece of scrap in Real Red so I used the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder with the dots… I then added the Tulle Polka Dot Ribbon … it adds some fun and dimension to the card.

I used the Pine Tree Punch to punch out my Christmas tree … this piece was “Heat Embossed” with clear embossing powder from a demonstration I did LIVE for my Technique Tuesday on Facebook. Don’t want to waste anything and with the embossed tree, it really highlighted the designer paper on my card.

The greeting comes from the Christmas Means More stamp set. This stamp set was a must have on my Wish List. I BELIEVE … do you?

I hope you enjoyed today’s Simply Sunday card, I will be demonstrating this SIMPLE cardmaking technique tomorrow with yet another version of this card.

Thank you for joining me this Sunday, and I look forward to hanging out with you tomorrow.
