Simply Sunday: Season’s Greetings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card created from the Snowflake Sentiments bundle. I have had many requests to showcase more than one card when doing the popular bundles.

I hope you got to see the “glamorous” Gold and Vanilla cards that I shared yesterday … oh so pretty! Today I’m using one of my favorite new In-Colors “Tranquil Tide” … all stamps and dies used today are again from the Snowflake Sentiments.

With the exception of the Oval Framelits and Stitched Shapes Framelits … these were used for the “Season’s Greetings” which comes in the bundle. I love the little swirls that come in this bundle – I used the Silver Foil for these, and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for the snowflake.

Our designer paper comes from the “Delicate Daisy” paper. Hint… Hint … this is one of the designer papers that are currently on sale (Buy 3 / Get 1 Free).

The inside was stamped with this wonderful sentiment and with little swirl that are included in the bundle as well. I also created a matching envelope by using the snowflake stamp and the swirl.

Super Simple to create … just a little stamping and a few runs through the BigShot and you are ready for assembly.

Thank you so much for joining me this Sunday. Stop back tomorrow, I have a cute Christmas card that features 2 more of the dies (you haven’t seen) that are included in the Snowflake Sentiments bundle.

Enjoy your Sunday ~

Simply Sunday: Grateful for cool tools!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I’m back with a pretty card that showcases some of my favorite tools for cardmaking. Have you ever thought … what did I do before the BigShot? Me too!! I love using my BigShot and all the tools for cutting and embossing.

Maybe someday I’ll show you some of my first cards … I think we all giggle when we look back. But we had to start somewhere right! That was 15 years ago.

On to today’s card …

000_2532

I began with the thought of using the “Into the Woods” Designer Series paper. I wanted to highlight the pretty flowers so I punched some out with the 2″ circle punch. Did you know the designs on this set of designer paper was hand painted by our designers? Watch this quick video to learn more (Into the Woods is the 3rd highlighted) …

Once I punched out the flowers I chose my color pallet … Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Mossy Meadow. I used the Razzleberry for my base and mat behind the flowers to make the razzleberry flowers pop in the bouquet of flowers. The mat was cut with the Circle Framelit Dies.

It’s so easy to create beautiful backgrounds with our embossing folders, and I wanted to use the new “Woodland” folder, it coordinates so well with the “Woodland” theme of this card.

000_2536

Finally my greeting … a simple choice! I used the “Seasonal Framelit Dies” and chose the grateful die cut and adhered it with the new Fine Tip Glue Pen. If you don’t have this yet, you will really need to get it on your wish list. I works so nice!

Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed the fun tools (punches, folders & framelits) that were used to create today’s Simply Sunday card.

Hope  you are having a wonderful weekend.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

 

CELEBRATE …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a sweet -n- simple card for you. When you are in need of a quick card but you still want a special look … just create one like this!

Use your designer papers, here you see the brilliant Bohemian designer paper – Today I kept it a bit subdued but you could go really bold with one or more of the other patterns.

000_2434

You will also see the pretty Venetian Lace ribbon that is currently listed in the Weekly Deals. I used it as a separation between the two designer paper patterns. You could easily make this more masculine by adding a strip of coordinating cardstock.

And what a way to make your card special … just add one the the beautiful wood veneer greetings from our Expressions Natural Elements.

TODAY’S SHOPPING SUPPLY LIST …

 

 

You’re the Best!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I am totally excited to share today’s card with you!! As some of you know, Eileen and I have been working on the upcoming Catalog Kick-Off party and this holiday weekend was no exception! But yesterday I came up with the cutest card made with the “Friendly Wishes” stamp set.

Friendly Wishes is just one of 7 stamp sets that will be featured at the Kick-Off party.  We will also have 7 boards showcasing additional card samples so you get an idea how fun and versatile these stamp sets are… Oh yes, and I raffle these boards off at the end of the night, so seven lucky winners go home with these fabulous cards!!

And here is one of those cards …

000_2356

This super cute and easy card was created with the Friendly Wishes stamp set and I teamed it up with the “Pretty Petals” Designer Series Paper Stack. Don’t you just love this pattern! Oh my gosh… I love it!

I added a bit of color to the greeting by highlighting the “BEST” with a marker, and stamping the flower.

I used the “Chalk Talk” framelits but found that I had no Calypso Coral ribbon, hmmm … what to do? So then it popped into my head … ya, you have a “bow” builder punch! And presto … the card was complete!

This view shows you how pretty the bow really is, and the great dimension it adds to it.

000_2358

We all love pretty cards, but that doesn’t mean they always have to take 3 hours to make! Use your designer paper … that’s what it’s here for.

We have another 5 cards showcasing this set, but you will have to come to the Kick-Off party to see them all. (A total of 42 card ideas!!) Remember … you must RSVP by this Friday, July 10th. Click Here to view full details and e-mail me at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com to RSVP.

I also want to give a quick shout out to a second wave of new “Pinterest” followers! Thank You!!

Have a beautiful week … I’ll see you tomorrow with the newest wave of Weekly Deals 🙂

Thanks for stopping by ~

A Happy Hello

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy July!!

Are you looking for pretty cards that are quick and easy to create? Well … I have the answer for you! Join me in the English Garden …

English Garden DSP

English Garden Designer Series paper that is! I don’t know what it is, the watercolor look, the color pallet? I don’t know, but I am drawn to this paper. It is really pretty and will be the focus of today’s card.

 

000_2335

You can get 6 pretty cards just from the sheet I used here … what’s really cool is, none of them will look alike. I simply cute my designer paper into 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces, then mount them onto the Soft Suede card stock.

I added banners to this card, however you can use circles, rectangles or any of the fabulous framelits! The greeting comes from the “Tin of Cards” stamp set. I finished off the front of the card with a bow created with the Whisper White Seam Binding.

Inside I used a left over piece of the designer paper and added a touch of the Soft Suede before mounting them onto a piece of Whisper White.

000_2337

The card maybe simple to make but it has an air of sophistication that any one of your friends would love to receive.

This one is for a special friend who is fighting a battle and I just want to let her know that I’m praying for her and think of her all the time. She has always brought a smile to my face when we get together. Stamping truly brings wonderful people into your life … I’m blessed.

Thank you for spending part of your day with me …

I hope yours is a happy one!

Be Joyful …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you had a good week and that you have a better weekend planned.

Today I’d like to share with you a card that calls for you to be joyful! I used the warm colors of Cherry Cobbler and Baked Brown Sugar. Hmmm… sounds yummy too!

I sponged the edges of the Brown Sugar to give it an aged look and then ran the “Perfect Polka Dot Folder” through my new Texture Boutique Machine. Wow … it works great!

000_1689

The stars were cut out using the Star Framelit dies, using the warm & lovely “Under the Tree’s” Designer Specialty Paper.

The Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon added the perfect touch to the card. It is not too heavy or think to tie a beautiful bow … it is really nice to work with.

The “Be Joyful” came from the “Project Life Holiday Cheer” stamp set. I liked it soooo much, that I ordered two!  LOL … yes, demonstrators do that too.

Just look at all the fun stamps this set has, and you can use it all year long!

Hmmm, I might just have do a “give-a-way”  … I don’t need two. Keep your eyes peeled!

Have a wonderful and joyful weekend!

STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

All is Calm Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It’s Monday and back to work for many of us, so I’d like to begin with a simple, calm Christmas card.

Yesterday I showed you an easy layout which included the dimensions you’ll need to make the card. I also suggested that you could use this layout for any type of card, so today I’m here to show you …

000_1606

The card was created using the Lost Lagoon cardstock and “All is Calm” Designer Series paper. The pop of Whisper White really makes the “Merry Christmas” stand out. The greeting comes from the “Making Spirits Bright”, found on page 48 in the Holiday catalog.

All of the layers are “popped” up, using the Stampin’ Dimensionals … it gives so much depth and texture to the card.

I couldn’t resist adding the beautiful silver glimmer snowflake to really make the card feel like Christmas. The snowflake comes from the Snowflake Card Thinlet Dies (9 dies) in our Holiday Catalog.

000_1608

Hope you enjoyed my Christmas version of the simple layout I shared yesterday, and thank you for stopping by.

Have a great week ahead ~
