Simply Sunday: Pretty Cards that are Easy to Create

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you’re having a great weekend and enjoying the warming weather … at least here in Wisconsin. We may hit 50 Degrees!  It’s got me thinking Spring … put away the snow shovels and bring out the umbrella’s!  Today’s Simply Sunday card features the Under My Umbrella Bundle and the coordinating Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.

The quickest and simplest way to create a card is to used your favorite designer paper…

Now that you have the Pleased As Punch designer series paper that coordinates with the Under My Umbrella bundle you can make cute cards in no time at all.  If you still don’t have these products yet, you can order them by clicking on the links below. I would love to help you if you do not have a demonstrator already.

My designer paper is cut 4″ x 5-1/4″ and is adhered to Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  I then took my Umbrella Builder punch and punched out another umbrella top … I popped the punched umbrella piece over the top of the umbrella  on the designer paper with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I actually added a thin layer of the Wink of Stella onto the umbrella I popped up but the camera did not pick it up … it really adds a nice touch to the card.

The greeting comes from the Under My Umbrella stamp set and was stamped with Gorgeous Grape.  I then punched it out using the Timeless Label Punch.  I punched out a couple pieces in the Gorgeous Grape and used it to mat my greeting… then I popped the entire piece up using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This is such a cute and simple card … it is easy to create with our designer papers, and the Pleased As Punch is the right choice as it coordinates with the Under My Umbrella bundle.

Here is the supply list …

Have an awesome day!  Linda



Simply Saturday: Grateful

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I shared a card using the “Motley Monsters” Designer Series paper and said that I would be sharing more. So today I have used the a piece of the leftovers from yesterday to create a fall card … a card of Gratitude.

My base colors are Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry which comes from the designer paper, and then I turned the designer paper (yes … this is from Motley Monsters) and turned it so the leaves appear to be falling to the bottom.


I used the new “Merry Everything” stamp set and the coordinating “Note Tag” punch, then topped it off with the “Tangelo Twist” ribbon.  You can save 15% if you bundle the two on your purchase.

I tipped the greeting so it also appeared to by gently falling with the leaves.  Don’t you just love autumn!?

The greeting was of course “popped” up with our Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Dimensionals. The inside was completed with a piece of Whisper White for your note, and a touch of the designer paper at the bottom.


Such a sweet and simple card that can be created in just minutes!

Thank you so much for stopping by Linda’s Stampin’ Escape today … I am truly grateful.

Have a wonderful day ~


Oh yes … I was going to tell you which of the “Motley Monsters” on yesterdays card was my favorite … It’s that cute little skeleton!  Here’s a list of ingredients for today’s card.


Blooming Fast to Blooming Beautiful

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

My card share today reflects my “Fast Friday” theme.  This beautiful birthday card is so easy to make, you could pump out a dozen in less than 1/2 hour!!  It’s a great way to create a stash of birthday cards and then get back to the fun in the sun!

I began with the beautiful “Park Lane” Designer Series paper.  This package has many unique designs and will work great for the ladies, the guys and even the kids!


I chose the floral pattern in Whisper White and Old Olive, and cut the paper to use the large flower as the focal point of my card.

The greeting comes from the new “Flower Patch” stamp set … fitting, don’t you think!  The “Flower Patch” stamp set is in the new Photopolymer material.  I love it, it’s perfectly clear and sticks to the blocks fabulously!!


I then cut my greeting and Old Olive mat from the “Apothecary Accents” framelits.  I did not want the greeting to overpower the card, but just added a bit of bling to draw your eye to it.

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick card.  Stop back tomorrow … I’ll be sharing another beautiful card using the “Park Lane” Designer paper.

Thanks much & have an awesome day!  It’s Friday 🙂
