Rain or Shine; You’re On My Mind Fun Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We made it through another Monday! I hope you got a chance to check out my card yesterday, those little boots just touch my heart ❤  Today I have another Under My Umbrella card for you created with the fun fold I shared with you on February 13th … my tulip card.  I am using the Pleased As Punch Designer Series paper again too …

We used the stamp set to stamp the designer paper with the stripes and then punched it out… stamped the handle and used dimensionals to secure the envelope.  Our greeting was stamped in Balmy Blue (and my little rain drops are a retired SU product).

The right flap overlaps our rain drop designer paper and when opened …

It looks like this.  Both sentiments on the outside and inside of the card come from the stamp set included in the Under My Umbrella Bundle… even the pretty little flowers on the inside come from this fab stamp set.  Layers are fun and when you can add the unique fold to your card creations, you’ll create a winner for sure.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and if you’d like the tutorial for the fun fun just head on over to my online store and purchase any one of the coordination bundles (see below). I will send you not only the tutorial for the fun fold but the other 3 cards as well, and a special hand stamped card from me. Hopefully you will also get one of those amazing Sale-a-bration items as well.

Thanks much for joining me today, it’s appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions on today’s card or anything else.

Have an awesome day ~

Life’s Showers, Bring Loves Flowers ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I’m late today with my post … bad router 😦  But I’m back and can’t wait to share today’s card with you.  Yesterday I said I would share cards from the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … a must have on my Wish List. It was the little “boots” that got me.

Today’s card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest.  She used the small hearts paper from the “From the Heart” Specialty Designer paper, I used the same. I changed the orientation and a few other things to make it my own ….

This is one of the cards that my February Stamp Club made … this card ties in with the products we used last month and introduces the Under My Umbrella bundle.  The bundle includes the stamp set and a punch that punches the umbrella.

Shower your loved ones in good wishes and flowers with the Under My Umbrella Stamp set. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes.

We used the stamp set and Real Red ink to stamp onto our designer paper.  We then punched out our umbrella and trimmed it to the stamped lines.  Then we punched an umbrella and handle out of Real Red cardstock and used it to mat the designer paper punched umbrella.  The little boots were fussy cut and then colored with the Real Red Marker.

The greeting and floral stamps were stamped with Momento Ink and colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers (see colors below). Our greeting was punched using the Pretty Label Punch … which also has a Real Red mat.  Rain was stamped in Smoky Slate.

I wish I could tell you the talented demonstrator who inspired me to make this card but her link was not working properly, in other words, it did not direct me to her site. I just had her verbiage translated and discovered it was German.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … I have another to share with the Under My Umbrella again tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by ~

Simply Sunday: Gettin’ Punchy

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today I’d like to share a few cards with you that highlight the beautiful “Pleased as Punch” Designer Series Paper.  This little tour of cards will lead you to the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … this will set you up for the cards I will be sharing with you tomorrow and Tuesday.

The “Pleased As Punch” Designer paper was introduced with the Coordination Product release.  These are special products created to coordinate with our favorite products from the January–June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.

The “Pleased As Punch” Designer paper coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack, Tulip Builder and Umbrella Builder punches all from the Mini Catalog and the Bloom Punch which you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration!

Here is a simple and cute card that I created with the Heart Punch Pack that is part of the Heartfelt Bundle found in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog. I embellished my punched hearts with pearls and the little flowers and greeting is part of the January 2020 Paper Pumpkin….

The pretty gingham background paper is included in the Pleased as Punch Designer Series paper!

This sweet card was created with the Small Bloom Punch that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration.  I teamed it up with two patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer paper. You can actually punch out the flowers from the designer paper making this card super simple to recreate …..

You have just seen 4 patterns used in two different cards … the versatility of this amazing paper is endless.  Let’s move on to yet another card.  This card also featured that pretty pink gingham paper and highlights the tulips that coordinate with the Timeless Tulips Bundle

If the winter has you a bit punchy, then the Pleased as Punch Designer paper should be on your Wish List.  It coordinates with four different punch packs / punches yet can be used for any card and any occasion.

My last card comes from the Under My Umbrella bundle …

This pattern in the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper allows you punch both the open and closed umbrellas. I fell in love with this paper while creating all these cards but it was the “Under My Umbrella” bundle that inspired me to purchase it.

And it was those little boots that pulled at my heart strings … There was nothing stopping me for purchasing the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  You will see more in the next few days.

Until then … I hope you enjoyed see how versatile the Pleased As Punch Designer paper is.  Please note that this is a special product introduction that will only be available during Sale-a-bration … OR Until Supplies Last!

Thank you for hanging out with me this Sunday, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of your day ~

Fun Fold with Guest Stamper Cathy C.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Valentines Day!!  It’s a bit chilly here in Wisconsin … -9° Burr!! However, today’s card will warm your heart. It was created by my friend and Star’s team member Kathy Czerwinski and she’s sharing it with all of us. She made a “fun fold” card to showcase the Honey Bee Bundle!!

Kathy’s top flap or front of the card highlights the Sale-a-bration Paper the “Golden Honey Specialty” Designer Series Paper …

and you will also see the die cut bee’s from the bundle.  The sweet little greeting “Hey, Lady” comes from our Hostess Stamp Set “Little Ladybug”. Get the adorable Little Ladybug Host Stamp Set FREE when you host a qualifying party or place a personal order totaling $300 or more during our Sale-A-Bration promotion (January 3–March 31, 2020).

Once you open the front of Kathy’s card …

You will find a “gate front” to the inside, decorated beautifully with another pattern from the “Golden Honey Specialty” Designer Series Paper … This is a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a qualifying purchase of $50 (before shipping and taxes).  I do want to mention the reason it’s called “Golden” and “Specialty” is because it has gold foil accents on some designs.

Let’s go through the gate ….

Kathy finishes off her card by stamping the bee from the Honey Bee Bundle and wishing a Happy Birthday.  I loved this card and was thrilled when Kathy said I could share it with you.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.  If you have any questions, you can email me at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com or just put your question in the message box below.  Someone else may have the same question as you 🙂

Pleased As Punch “Fun Fold” Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well this one took a little while but it’s finally here … my 4th “Pleased As Punch” Designer Series paper  card, and I combined it with a fun fold!  So have you guessed yet?  You got it … this card features the tulips. Although I do not have the Timeless Tulips Bundle yet, I am still enjoying playing with this design.

I love that you get 12 sheets of this patterned paper: 3 each of 4 double-sided designs!  You can view the Under My Umbrella Card, the Heart Punch card and the Small Bloom Punch card just by clicking on the link.  Now … lets check out our tulip card …

Our fun fold card starts with the flap on the right showcasing my bouquet of tulips. I really wish I had the punch because it would have been much quicker than fussy cutting my tulips and leaves out!  I layered these onto this flap to create my focal point … Some are popped up to create some added dimension.

I’ve been arranging flowers since I was 19 years old and we won’t say how long that has been … lol.  So that made this card fun to make.  My greeting was taken from the Under My Umbrella stamp set and tucked gently under my tulip bouquet.

The pretty pink gingham paper comes from the same paper pack … the “Pleased As Punch” Designer Series paper.  It is on the reverse side of the hearts.  I thought the two paired nicely together.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and if you’d like the tutorial for the fun fun just head on over to my online store and purchase any one of the coordination bundles (see below).  I will send you not only the tutorial for the fun fold but the other 3 cards as well, and a special hand stamped card from me.  Hopefully you will also get one of those amazing Sale-a-bration items as well.

Thanks much for joining me today, it’s appreciated. Let me know if you have any questions on today’s card or anything else.

Have an awesome day ~

National Wear Red Day® – Cards dressed in Red!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. (Taken from the heart.org site)

So … as I wear my red today, I thought it would be fun to share a couple cards dressed in red and highlighting our hearts.  Let’s start sweet -n- simple, this easy to create card uses only 4 items with your cardstock!!  I began with Real Red cardstock for my base and pulled out the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  I choose the red & pink heart pattern.

I love the Heart Doilies and decided to use them for this card.  You get pink and red doilies in the pack, and if you flip them over … they are white! So the base is the red doily, then I cut down one down and used the white side to stamp my greeting. The greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set.  I finished this card off with a pretty red bow.

For my second card, I took the red & pink pattern from the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper and flipped it over!  The flip side reveals this cute red foil with pink & white polka dots.

You can easily see that I incorporated the doilies in my second card as well. The pretty foil heart was punched out from another sheet of the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  You can use either of the punches in the punch pack on these hearts, I used the scalloped heart punch.

I added a piece of vellum cardstock to highlight the punched heart, and the greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set which bundles with the Heart Punch Pack. A little strip of Whisper White cardstock cut into a banner highlights the greeting.

Our Heartfelt Bundle and coordinating “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper is not just for Valentines, it’s great for your friends, for weddings, baby showers and more. Today it’s to celebrate life … to bring awareness to the fight against heart disease.

Thank you so very much for sharing a part of your day with me today… enjoy the rest of your Friday.
