Simply Sunday: Creatively Simple & Stunning Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share today’s 5 cards with you … YES, 5 cards! What is more simple than working with a card & envelope set … not sure, because this packet made creating these cards easy. My daughter was amazed that I made them so fast, but I started with a simple idea and I’m going to share that with you today.

Let’s begin with our card kit … the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards & Envelopes. These cute cards come in our new 2020-2022 In-Colors….

I love these card bases for quick and easy cards. There are 2 each of 5 2020–2022 In Colors. 10 printed card bases and 10 printed envelopes. Discover Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight.

I think the Polka dots are cute so I didn’t want to hide them so my first layer … usually Whisper White measures 4″ by 3″ and fits nicely inside my polka dots. To add a touch of color I will add the coordinating In Color 6 x 6 Designer paper pack and the ribbon. For some fun … we’ll use some of the punches we have. Let’s begin ….

My first card highlights the Misty Moonlight, so what better to start with than the “Cat” punch ….

My apologies for using the “retired” moon & stars … Looks like I need to check my catalog a little closer, but it does look nice with our Cat silhouette. I colored the polka dots with my Stampin’ Blends … one touch and they were “Bumble Bee”. I also used it on the envelope (and a ruler to guide me)

The next card highlights the Just Jade and the “Pine Tree” punch …

I punched the tree from two different patterns, added the ribbon with a bow (it is Christmas) and our greeting comes from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set. I used this stamp set for the rest of my cards today.

The third card brings us into Spring and the Magenta Madness …

I used the “Heart Punch Pack” to create this card… the scallop heart is punched in the Magenta Madness cardstock and the other heart is punched from the In Color 6 x 6 Designer paper pack. I also changed the layout from horizontal to vertical … they can be used either way.

I also switched up my ribbon from a simple bow to two lines of ribbon. Ribbon is the perfect way to add texture and color to your projects at a budget friendly price … there is a lot of ribbon on those bolts!!

My fourth card uses the ribbon in a similar fashion, more to dress up the card than to create a bow …

Talk about a simple card … I took the “sun” embellishment out of this months Paper Pumpkin kit! It’s cute and matches perfectly. The Paper Pumpkins are designed to coordinate with other products … and the stamp set, you guessed it – also from this kit! Each month you get an “Exclusive” stamp set that you’ll have around whenever you need it.

The fifth and final card today celebrates both the Bumblebee and the Cinnamon Cider …

I used both Daisy punches to create a sunflower and both the Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider ribbon to create a pop of color and texture. The greeting is again from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set.

So, as you can see with the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards & Envelopes as your base and a little designer paper, ribbon and punches you can create “Simple yet Stunning” cards for all occasions!

Doesn’t that look like a mailbox full of fun! I hope I inspired you to start creating, and use some of those items you have in your collection to make something fresh and new.

Thank you for spending a part of your Sunday with me. Stop back tomorrow because I have an amazing “FUN FOLD” card. If you like what you saw today, feel free to leave me a quick note below or hit the LIKE button.

Simply Sunday: Petal Palette Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I thank you for taking time out of your day to stop and visit my blog.  Today I have a sweet -n- simple card for you, that I created using the Petal Palette stamp set (Annual Catalog – page 119) and the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits Dies.

I used the monochromatic style when creating this card which is done in the Balmy Blue …

My base is Whisper White as was the oval for my greeting and the flowers that were die cut with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.  I don’t know about you but I feel in love with the Gingham Gala 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper … it’s just so “springy”! Reminds me of a warm sunny day. I chose the smaller gingham side (other is wider) and then backed it with Balmy Blue.

The oval was cut from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Die and stamped in Balmy Blue.  As I stated earlier … I die cut the flowers with the Petals & More Thinlits Dies and colored them with the Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Combo packs.  They were then popped up using mini dimensionals and embellished with the clear faceted gems (so pretty).

I think the stitching adds the perfect touch to the gingham and those clear faceted gems really make the little flowers pop! Cute yet quick … that’s just how we have to have it sometimes!!

Again, thanks for stopping in today!

I wish you a beautiful Sunday ~

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!

000_2532

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.

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.

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!

000_1692

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 ~

12 Quick -n- Easy Cards using Designer Series Paper!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I thought I would share a recap of the many cards using the new Designer Series papers!  I thought this would be a great way to finish off the Quick -n- Easy cards series.

Our first three cards are from the “LULLABY” Designer Series Papers …

102_2414

000_1130

102_2436

As you can see, this beautiful paper can be used for many styles of cards … not just baby cards as the name “Lullaby” would imply.  I love the fun playful patterns in the Soft Subtle colors.

 

My next three cards are from the “PARK LANE” Designer Series Paper…

000_1175

000_1180

000_1187

Don’t you just love these papers!  The rich Blackberry Bliss color teamed up with colors like Old Olive and Soft Suede make these colors perfect for a man or women’s card… and the patterns are there to support it.

 

My next 2 cards are from the “Back to Black” Designer Series Paper ….

000_1195

000_1241

For me … this is my go to Designer Paper because you can team it up with any colors you want!   The patterns range from floral, to fun, to funky!  It’s great to pick out your pattern and then accessorize it the way you want … like having a little black dress!

 

The next two cards come from the “SWEET TAFFY” Designer Series paper and from my Quick -n- Easy collection …

000_1224

000_1230

This is definitely a fun designer paper to have around… the colors and patterns are just waiting for you to come out and play!

 

The next three card samples come from the “MARITIME” Designer Paper …

000_1072

000_1115

000_1154

This is a great designer paper to have in your collection!  Right off the bat you think masculine, guy cards … but you can see this is so much more!  From a playful kids card to yes …  a baby card!

Isn’t it great to see the different styles all together on one page!  I thought it was a great way to showcase the different designer papers in the different designer series packages.     Hope you enjoyed the cards.  I’d love to know which one is your favorite?

I’ll have the links below so you can just click on them and begin shopping.  Don’t forget …

A Wonderful Journey …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you another card from my Quick -n- Easy series focusing on the Designer Series Paper.  My card is a bit more sophisticated than the fun and bold birthday card you saw yesterday.

Nothing says sophistication like black and white, so I pulled out the “Back to Black” Designer Series Paper.  It’s like pulling out your favorite outfit from your closet!  I used it as my background and with one of the banners so you could see two different patterns.

000_1236

I quickly made the banners using the “Banner Framelit Dies”, this is where I introduced the Mossy Meadow, one of the new 2014-16 In-colors.  I secured these to the top of the designer paper and topped it off with the beautiful Mossy Meadow Stitched Ribbon.  It’s so soft and ties beautifully.

To complete the card, I chose the new “World of Dreams” stamp set found on page 127.  This was on my wish list from the moment I opened the new catalog, it didn’t take long before it was in my stamp collection and I was a very happy stamper!

What a beautiful greeting … “Wishing you a wonderful journey through a world of dreams come true”.   The second greeting in the set is; “The best thing about a person like you is that you bring out the best in everyone”.  Perfect … perfect stamp set!

I stamped the saying in Black StazOn, then cut it out with the “Circle Framelit Dies”.  Lastly, I inked up the leaves in Mossy Meadow and “stamped off” onto scrap paper before stamping over my verse.  To create some dimension, I popped up the verse using the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

000_1241

It is a very easy card to make and the use of the framelits make it quick and professional looking.

Now is a great time to purchase the designer papers … It’s buy 3, get 1 FREE.

Too Much Happy?

Hello My Stampin’ Friends,

My, my … You can never have too much happy!  Such is the thought of my card share today.  As promised, I will share with you a sample created with the “Weekly Deals”.  Today’s card features the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die… on sale now, through Monday 4/7/14.

Perfect Pennants Bigz Die

Perfect Pennants Bigz Die 123126
Price: $32.95 NOW $24.71
Create trendy pennants and banners with our Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die! The innovative designs in these longer Bigz dies give you new and interesting creative options. Ideal for cutting thicker materials and multiple layers. Use with Standard Cutting Pads. Measures 6″ x 8-3/4″.

I figured that you could make a banner using that die.   The little decor embellishments work great on your pennants / banners and I wanted to show you how to put them onto a card.  Here it will mat and highlight my greeting!

000_0963

The greeting comes from the stamp set “Yippee Skippee” in our main catalog.  I stamped it onto vanilla cardstock, using the black StazOn™ ink.

My patterned paper comes from (some of you already know) the Modern Medley Designer Series paper.  Who doesn’t love polka dots!

I teamed it up with this cute little flower from the “Mixed Bunch” stamp set.  You can find that on page 89 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Many of my club members have this set, so I thought you would enjoy another use for this stamp set.  The circles (dots) in the flowers work well with the designer paper.

To create the “pop” on the card I used the Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon and my die cut piece in the coordinating cardstock.

000_0962

A quick and simple card to make that anyone would love to receive… very cheery.

I’m posting the ingredients below- just click on the link for more details or to purchase.  Don’t forget the “Perfect Pennants” Bigz die is on sale through Monday.

Thank you for sharing part of your day with me …

Have a “HAPPY” Sunday ~

A Happy Birthday Note … Quick & Easy!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Burrrrrrrrrr… it is cold again this week.  This has been a “heck” of a winter!  Hope you’re all holding up … even those of you in the 60 to 70 degree Arizona warmth. (tee hee)  We’re jealous!

Today I’m going to share with you a simple layout that will work with any Designer Series Paper and Stamp set.  Of course, I chose one of my favorites… you guessed it, I’m using the Timeless Talk Stamp Set and the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper.

000_0720

What a fantastic Birthday card!  Gender neutral … that is always good when we are creating cards.  A bit nostalgic, and I guess that is what draws me to this stamp set.

This sweet stamp set should be a must have in everyone’s collection … I love that the greetings are included in this set.  It includes a “Thanks” … a “Hello” … and of course the “Happy Birthday”.  Seems to me that rounds it out pretty good.

This card is so simple to make, I don’t have a lot of instructions.  The only thing that I forgot to add to my list was the “Ovals Collection Framelits”.  You can find them on page 186 of the annual catalog & Idea book (the big one) or click on the link.

  I must say that I do use the Black StazOn ink pad whenever I stamp black images.  I think it works the best.

000_0723

I added a few pearls just to jazz up the card a bit, and used my “Sharpie” marker to color them black.  You “MUST” use a Sharpie / permanent marker so that it does not rub off.

Stay warm … have a wonderful weekend and …

Have a great day!
