Simply Sunday: Beauty of Friendship Card Parade

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have a treat for you today … a simple yet beautiful Slim Line card and a parade of other cards that were created from the amazing Beauty of the Earth Suite. I will also be sharing some fun techniques on these cards so, grab a cup of coffee and sit back with me while we go through these creative gems!

I share these because the Beauty of Friendship Bundle is part of the Savings in Bloom promotion. I will share “all” of the items on sale at the bottom of my post.

First up is my Slimline cards, this card fits in a business size envelope … I’m using two different patterns from the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and joined them together with the pretty Gold Fine Art Ribbon; it has a touch of sparkle, so I had to add the Genial Gems to keep the sparkle going.

The greeting comes from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set / bundle. I chose the Cinnamon Cider as a mat and Merry Merlot as my card base … they pull those colors out of the designer paper. I find this suite / bundle very gender neutral … who wouldn’t love these cards!

My second card I’m using the same pattern of the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper and the Beautiful Trees dies. Another simple card when using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. The greeting comes from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set included in the bundle.

Ready to see another card using the same paper? The amazing thing is that each one looks sooo different! I used a landscape layout verses the portrait as I did on the first two cards and created this unique card. I also used Night of Navy on this card to pull out the blue in the designer paper.

I created the frame with the Stitched Rectangle Dies … I love this look, it’s new and fresh and highlights the designer paper. I added the tree and greeting from the bundle …

Now lets change things up a little by using a different pattern from our Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and a fun technique … the “Split Card Technique”. I’m using Old Olive and Early Espresso to coordinate with my designer paper. You can watch the video to see how to create this card yourself by CLICKING HERE!

Now I would like to bring in one of the “hottest designer papers” right now, and that is the NEW HORIZONS Designer paper … so many pretty patterns would work perfectly with the dies from the Beauty of the Earth bundle. The watercolor landscapes look so cool with the tree.

The next card I share with you has a card base is Early Espresso …. so is the tree itself, it made the Misty Moonlight designer paper from the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper really pop, and when I added the leaves to the trees … WOW! The leaves on the bottom are just another die cut of the top … just cut up into smaller pieces to lay upon the ground. So pretty!

The last card I have to share with you, has the same watercolor background paper that I used on the “You Inspire Me” card but I’m changing up the seasons. Once the leaves are gone … well, winter comes next, and it makes for the perfect Christmas card …

I just love this card and I used the Chalk pen and Wink of Stella to add snow to my tree! How fun is that! I just wanted to show you that this is not just another tree set, but a bundle / or suite that can be used for any season … or any reason!!

The Beauty of the Earth Suite is still available, but if you are just looking for the bundle … it’s 20% Off right now. I always wonder if Stampin’ Up! will retire a stamp set when they put it on sale … so if this is on your “Wish List”, you may want to consider getting it now and enjoy the extra savings!! You can click on any of the images below for details on the bundles or to begin shopping … it takes you directly to my store.

Thank you for joining me this Sunday for my card parade, I hope you enjoyed the many styles of cards. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Simply Sunday: Simply Marbleous Flowers

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have an amazing combination featuring the Simply Marbleous Designer Paper in our Sale-a-bration catalog and the Flowing Flowers stamp set from our Jan-June Mini Catalog. I highlighting all 6 colors from the paper and each of the flowers and greetings from the stamp set … yes, 6 cards today!!

Let’s get started! I’m going to share two cards using the same floral design, and because the designer paper has a “marble” and a “silky” appearance … I will show one of each. This will give you a good look at this amazing designer paper!

Going to start simple with basic stamping …. the flowers are “stamped off” using Highland Heather. The image is stamped three times across the cardstock and then our greeting is stamped directly on top in Gorgeous Grape. I also used the Gorgeous Grape as a mat to highlight my stamped images and the Simply Marbleous Designer Paper. I finished off this card with the pearlescent Elegant Faceted Gems.

My next card highlights the “Basic Gray” designer paper and again the small floral image … which I stamped onto Basic Gray cardstock to create my own background. This is a technique that has been around for some time … and with a strip of our designer paper, the combination is a hit and really draws your eye to the focal point … our greeting.

I used the “stamping off” technique again to stamp my floral image onto the Basic White and then stamped my greeting directly over the top using Basic Gray. I punched it with the Label Me Lovely punch and jazzed it up with the Metallic Mesh Ribbon and our Basic Rhinestones!

My 3rd card showcases the Bumble Bee designer paper with the “silk” look and the single flower image. Just simple stamping on this card as well but it really highlights the pretty paper, but I couldn’t stop there … I had to add some Wink of Stella to my flower… WOW!

I stamped my greeting in Bumble Bee ink and then punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch and embellished it with the Iridescent Rhinestones ….

The fourth card is Basic Black and Pool Party … talk about a pop! I love the marble design in the Pool Party and it makes a perfect background for this flower. The greeting is simply stamped directly onto the designer paper. The flower is highlighted with a piece of Basic Black and the Square Vellum Doilies and then embellished with the Classic Mat Dots found in the Jan-June Mini Catalog ….

Classic Mat DotsOnly 2 more to go … This card showcases the Blushing Bride designer paper and I am using the “marble” effect on this one as well. This fourth card also introduces you to the full floral design inked up in Blushing Bride, stamped off and then stamped onto Basic White. I brought in the Basic Gray to compliment the Blushing Bride.

The greeting is stamped in Basic Gray directly over the floral image … the entire assembly is popped up using dimensionals. I used the “gray” dots from the Classic Mat Dots … they come in four basic colors; Black, Gray, White and Vanilla.

My last card uses the same floral image and highlights the Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue in the “silky” effect designer paper. The image is stamped in Balmy Blue and the greeting in Misty Moonlight. The base and mats are all in Misty Moonlight Cardstock and popped up with dimensionals. I added the 2020-22 In Color Square Gems to pull the two colors together.

I bought the beautiful Flowing Flowers stamp set because I could not resist the sentiments!! It includes the perfect all occasion … I just want to cheer you up, say “hello” and more greetings! AND … the flowers are pretty. Plus, I thought the “flowing” flowers went perfectly with the flowing silky look of the Simply Marbleous Designer Paper.

I hope I inspired you with theses simple and pretty layouts, and if you don’t have the Flowing Flowers you can click on the link below and get yours today … the Simply Marbleous Designer Paper is a Sale-a-bration item and is FREE with a purchase of $50.

Thank you so much for hanging out with me this Sunday.

Thank You Dahlias …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a pretty card that showcases the Delicate Dahlias in Fresh Freesia. It’s such a soft delicate color for these pretty flowers and creates a warm “thank you” for your recipient.

The dahlias are stamped multiple times on the Basic White cardstock … years ago this technique was common because the gorgeous designer papers you see now days, just weren’t there so we created our own backgrounds. Here we took it a step further and used it to showcase the flowers.

The card needed a come texture so I used the “Brick & Mortor” Embossing Folder behind my flowers … it reminds you of a lovely summer garden.

The greeting comes from the amazing Welcoming Woods stamp set (LOVE this one!!) It has so many nice greetings with a mixture of fonts … they look so pretty! I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies for my greeting … I die cut out the Fresh Freesia and then cut the white piece out with my cutter, and the greeting was stamped in the coordinating Fresh Freesia ink.

To finish off my card I wanted to keep the soft look of the card so I added the White Glitter Organdy ribbon… who doesn’t want a touch of sparkle with the soft flow of the ribbon. Then I added three Opal Rounds placed around the greeting …

We still have a few days left … well 2 to get your hands on the Delicate Dahlia stamp set. I am completing my class up this week so when you purchase through me, and choose the Dahlia set, I will send you an invite to a private Facebook page where I will have video’s and PDF for additional Dahlia cards!!

Here is a card I had shared prior using the distinktive stamps in this set …. don’t they look real? It really brings the dahlias to life … I wanted you to see how the two different large dahlias in the stamp set looked.

Hope you enjoyed today’s cards and I thank you hanging out with me today. Join me tonight on my Facebook LIVE to see a fun and easy technique using the Delicate Dahlias!

Our catalogs are also a great place to find inspiration. So you now follow my blog, make sure you follow me “Linda’s Stampin’ Escape” on Facebook and even my YouTube Channel for more inspiration!!

As I said, I took the example out of the Annual Catalog to begin my card. My background is also designer paper, in fact, it’s from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper in this suite. The suite includes the designer paper and the bundle 3-D Bark Embossing Folder!

My card base is Early Espresso and so is the tree itself, that made the Misty Moonlight designer paper really pop, and when I added the leaves to the trees … WOW! The leaves on the bottom are just another die cut of the top … just cut up into smaller pieces to lay upon the ground. Simple … right.

Just a little closer Iook at the card so you can see the watercolor detail of my background paper, and how the fallen leaves look. The greeting comes from the Beauty of friendship stamp set / bundle. Because we are still in our Sale-a-bration period through the end of September … You can get a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration catalog with the purchase of the suite or the bundle!!

Hope you enjoyed today’s card and feel inspired by this beautiful season called Autumn.

Thank you hanging out with me today. Have a beautiful day ~
