Enjoy the Adventure Parade of Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Let’s get a close up of the Enjoy the Adventure cards … Today I will be sharing my cards from the LIVE along with the dimensions so you can recreate them for yourself because the Sale-a-bration and Mini catalogs have gone LIVE today!! Woo hooo … YOU can finally get your hands on your favorite stamps, dies and those awesome designer papers.

My first card was the “Thank You” card … the simplest of the bunch. The base comes from the Cards & Envelopes which coordinate with the Memories & More Card Pack. I simply cut down the 4″ x 6″ Thank you card to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ (so a 1/2″ off the top and 1/2″ off one side). I then colored in the THANK YOU with Mint Macaron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Super Simple!

On to the next card, we begin with the Mango Melody and Petal Pink card base. These are scored for you so they fold nicely …

I took a second card base and cut off the front, then I cut the front down to 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ (you’ll get 2 from the front piece). I then layered the “heart” card which measure 3″ x 4″ … not cutting needed.

The rest is easy as I used the die cut adhesive backed elements from the sticker sheet included in the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More Card Pack. Each of the elements were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then brushed with Wink of Stella.

The next card also starts with the Mango Melody and Petal Pink card base…

This card is all about layers … the bottom two layers are actually 2 of the 3″ x 4″ cards from the card pack. The two smaller pieces; the Petal Pink is 4″ x 1-3/4″ and was attached vertically, then the Mango Melody piece 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ was layered vertically. Both of these smaller pieces were cut from the 1/2 front that was left over from the second card!

The Happy Birthday (popped up) and Stars are elements from the sticker sheet. The three little dots come from the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots.

Now … I have one more card to share with you. If the first card was a bit too simple for you, this card will show you how you can get the same look, but a little more jacked up …

The card begins exactly how our first card was created, except I took the left over pieces cut off and found a full “THANK YOU” to trim down and color … this will give us more dimension. Then I punched a scalloped heart from vellum to place behind the “Thank You” so it stands out more.

It’s amazing how some simple changes can add so much to a card. These card packs are fun to play with, I better pull out a scrapbook before I use up all my pieces! lol

Thank you for joining me today. Which one of these cards is your favorite??

Enjoy the Adventure Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

WOW … do I have some great cards to share with you today. I have taken the Enjoy the Adventure Memories & More Card Pack and turned the cards into “cards” you can send using the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. Using the Card Pack you can quickly capture life’s special moments by scrapbooking … and the cards and envelopes and you can create quick and easy cards.

Join me to watch the replay of last nights Facebook LIVE where I share several cards cards I created using the Enjoy the Adventure Memories and More Card pack …

As promised, I have a cute card created with the two Memories and More packages and the Adorable Owls. This one was so easy to create, first the Mango Melody / Petal Pink card base from the Cards & Envelopes package, and then the so grateful card which I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up.

There was no extra cutting of cards to create this look … I just used the cards directly from the pack.

This sweet little owl (there are 3) from the Adorable Owls was stamped with Momento ink and colored with the Smoky Slate Combo pack, along with Balmy Blue for they eyes, Mango Melody for the Bow tie and then Daffodil Delight for the beck and feet.

The owl is fussy cut … which means no dies, you have to cut it out yourself.

I also added three of the Opaque Adhesive-backed Gems to draw in your eye and give the cards some additional texture. It’s so easy to create cute cards from these card packs … Both the Enjoy the Adventure and Adorable Owls will be available in just one day!! Woot Woot!

If you’re newer to stamping or if you just want to grab the Enjoy the Adventures packets so you can create your own quick cards. I hope you were inspired today with these designs.

When you stop back tomorrow, I’ll have dimension & more for the cards and a “stepped up” card for you!!

Thank you for taking time our of your day to join me.

Have a wonderful day ~

Celebrate Today

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, mine was full of fun and stamping. The Launch party may be over but I think I’ll be carrying over some of the fun games and stuff on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page … I don’t want the fun to end!!

Today, I’d like to share another card created with the Hand-Penned Memories and More card pack, but unlike yesterday I will not be using the Card & Envelopes but a card base from my cardstock stash. My card base is the New Pale Papaya ….

I added a strip of Basic White embossed with the Greenery Embossing Folder, this gives our card some nice texture. Upon the white accent I added one of the smaller cards which has such a pretty floral pattern …

The greeting also comes from our Memories & More Card Kit … it is a die cut adhesive with the greeting already printed on it. Let’s talk about making pretty cards … pretty quick!!

I couldn’t resist adding some In-Color Rhinestones (unfortunately they are not orderable at this time) but if you have patience … you will fall in love with these new colors.

So what do you think about using our Memories & More Hand-Penned Card Kit for your quick -n- easy card making?

I want to thank you for hanging out with me today.

Have a wonderful day ~

Another Quick Christmas Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a Quick -n- Easy Christmas Card that I created with the Wonder of the Season Memories and More Card Pack, and I have another version for you today!

Still didn’t break out the stamps and ink yet … just a little cutting and some stampin’ dimensionals and a touch of Wink of Stella …

The two (4″ x 6″) cards I used are actually the same … The front of the card is the “Celebrate the Season” which I cut out, and the back side is the holly which I used as my card front.

The holly card was trimmed down to 5-1/4″ and the piece that was cut off was tucked on the inside to decorate that too!

To finish off my card … I highlighted the greeting with my Wink of Stella. It adds a beautiful sparkle to the card.

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for joining me today.

Simply Sunday … Using Card Kits for Quick-n-Easy Cardmaking

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you always struggling to come up with card designs? Let me help you by introducing “kits” that work well together.  Today I am taking the base from one of the cards included in the July 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit and pairing it up with some of the amazing contents in the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Kit.  Creating with any of our card kits makes designing cards so easy.

Most of you know that I am a Lighthouse fanatic!!  They are so majestic and full of history … the are the guardians of the seas. OK … a little more about the card now!!  The base is from the July 2019 Paper Pumpkin, then I pulled the rest of the images from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.

The card pack includes 50 total double-sided cards (2 each of 25 designs), 4 sticker sheets, all Acid free, lignin free and work perfect for scrapbooking or cardmaking.  The background and base are both cards from the pack and then I started adding the stickers. Let me mention that the stickers are not flimsy stickers but sturdy die cuts with adhesive… the stand up well to your cards and scrapbooks.

The rope border, both greetings / verbiage and anchor are all stickers from the card pack.  The adhesive allows you to move it around a bit while you are creating, as long as you are not pushing it down too hard. We all need quick -n- easy cards, and these kits solve the problem!!

Did I forget to mention that the Paper Pumpkin kit has coordinating envelopes as well?  Once you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber … you can purchase any past kits that are available. Plus … Pinterest is FULL of alternate designs!!
