Quick Card Week: 2 Super Easy Cards!

I’m still blown away by how much you can do with the Petal Garden Card Pack! I’ve got two different cards for you today, both made from this card pack.

This card was so much fun to make! The first layer on this card was a 4″ x 6″ Petal Garden one-sheet card cut to 5-1/4″ x 4.” The white circle and the wreath were already printed on the card piece!! The pretty purple flower in the center of the wreath is a sticker that comes with the card pack ~ yep, just stick it on! How easy is that? And the sentiment is preprinted on one of the smaller cards in the pack and cut to 1″ x 2-1/2.”

And here is the second card. Like with the first one, the base layer, the background design and the flower spring, are all printed on one of the cards in the card pack. I just cut it down as I did with the first card. The little frame and the sentiment are again…stickers! Yeah! This card literally took less than 10 minutes to make. And for the envelope I used another one of the pretty stickers in the pack.

One thing I haven’t told you…this whole card pack is only $10!! Do you believe it? Such an inexpensive and easy way to make lots of card!

Quick Card Week: Color Theory Card Pack-and Free Shipping!

Here’s another super quick card for you. All you need to make this card is the Color Theory Card Pack, the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack, and some Whisper White card stock! I like this card because it could be used for a guy, a girl, or anyone, and it’s simple!

How simple you ask? Well, you need the Whisper White card base. Then, using the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (beautiful 6″ x 6″ papers in this suite), chose one of the green ombre papers (where the color blends out from dark to light) and cut that to a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece.

The only thing left to do is put two of the smaller Color Theory cards at an angle, one on top of the other. Easy, right? And, done! I’m telling you, these card packs are amazing, they have so many uses!

Quick Card Week: Petal Garden #1

We all want to make quick cards. You glance at your calendar and notice a friend’s birthday is tomorrow and you need a card pronto. What do you do? Well, I reach for the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack and quickly put together a pretty card!

I was really amazed by all that’s in this card pack. First of all you get 72 double-sided cards. These aren’t greeting cards, they are cards that you might pin on your bulletin board, or put in your planner. But I used them to create greeting cards. They are gorgeous and a snap to use! There are two sizes of cards, gold foil die cuts, AND, 2 sheets of stickers! I used the stickers on my envelopes!

I cut the cards to the length and width I wanted and adhered them to my greeting card. For today’s card a beautiful 4″ x 6″ card with a pattern that I liked was used as a background layer. Then I used a 3″ x 4″ card that has a nice sentiment and layered that on top.

I tied the smaller card with some gor-jus (really!) 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Flirty Flamingo. I am loving this ribbon!

I added a leaf die cut using the Rose Garden Thinlits and placed that on a bit of a Delicate White Doily. The card was finished off with a few Metallic Enamel Shapes, and that was it! Quick, right?

Over the next week I’m going to be showing cards made with this card kit. The possibilities are endless and you will be so surprised at how quickly you can put together a pretty card!

Don’t forget my FREE SHIPPING SPECIAL this week only!

Place an order of any size through my Stampin’ Up! Online Store and I will personally refund your shipping charges! You go ahead and pay the shipping at the time of your order, but as soon as it goes through I will send you a check to refund you the shipping cost!

The Fabulous Tab Punch!!

Why is it so fabulous? well just look at these tabs I punched out for my catalog! They are cute and they are just what I need to help me find things quickly in the catalog!

What else can you use the tab punch for? The photo above is from Stampin’ Up! and it shows a cute little pocket card with a tab that pulls the card out of the pocket! Is that darling or what?

For my tabs I chose cardstock colors I thought looked good together and with the catalog front and just started punching away! You can see that the tab has a small rectangular base that adheres to the page or paper. You simply punch, fold the punched tab in half, and adhere the front and back rectangular bases to the page or paper. It’s quick and easy! For my tabs I used Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere them to the catalog pages. Then I used a black felt-tip pen to write the words on the tabs.

This is a great punch to have in your collection as I know it’s going to be used a lot! For more details about the punch, just click on the photo above! And, it’s a great time to order the Tab Punch as it will count toward your Bonus Days Coupon!

JULY ONLY! For every $50 order in July, you receive a $5 coupon to use in August! Click below to start shopping!

Summer Watercolored Rose

Ok, I’ll just say it, I love roses! My front walkway is lined with roses, and right now they are blooming their little hearts out! We actually didn’t even plant the roses, they were here when we bought our house, and I couldn’t be happier 🙂

This stamp set is called Graceful Garden and it has the most beautiful rose stamps! For today’s card, the biggest rose in the set was first stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I took an Aqua Pen and lightly watercolored the rose and the leaves.

Pretty Pointer: Heat embossing the outline of a stamp confines water within the lines of the stamped image. Give this a try on your next watercolor project!

If you love beautiful flowers, this is definitely the set for you!

Lemon Lime Hugs!

Who doesn’t like hugs? I love hugs, especially from my husband 🙂 And others like hugs too, particularly people who are feeling down or going through hard things. That’s why I like this sentiment, because it conveys so much that other words really can’t.

The Lovely Words Thinlits Dies have three great words that can be used in different ways. You can see what the dies look like below. They are backwards in this photo 🙂 For today’s card I snipped the word “hugs” out of the circle after the die was cut.

But you don’t have to snip the words out. Look at the other ways you can use the dies below. Aren’t they fun?

To add interest to today’s card I used some Embossing Paste. I’m just loving this stuff. I want to use it on every card! Ha!

Don’t forget about July Bonus Days! For every $50 order, you receive a coupon for $5 off your purchase in August! This is one of the ways during the year to save on Stampin’ Up!’s fabulous products. Take advantage of this while you can!

Today is the Perfect Day to be Happy! (ttt005)

Today is another exciting Tic Tac Toe Challenge! These challenge boards are so much fun. I love the fact that we get to choose the elements we want to use! For my card I’ve chosen the top row across: circle – summer – ribbon.

For the circle element I actually used two circles. The lower circle is punched out with the Sunburst Punch, and the inside circle was die-cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Pretty Pointer:  Framing your sentiment always makes a statement. Whether your sentiment is on a square shape, a circle, or an oval, add a framing layer either in front or behind your sentiment piece. It will add a finished look to your project.

For the summer element I used the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. This particular sheet of dsp has a light summery look which is perfect!

Ribbon, beautiful ribbon! That’s one reason I chose the top row across the tic tac toe board…I really love ribbon! In yesterday’s post I told you that the 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding is my absolute favorite ribbon in the new Annual Catalog 🙂  So when I have the opportunity to choose ribbon, I HAVE TO use my favorite, right???

So what about you? Will you come over and join us? The Tic Tac Toe Challenge is fun and easy and we would love for you to enter! I’ll look for you over there at tictactoechallenge.com!

Live, Laugh, and Love on the Fourth!

Happy Independence Day Friends! What a great day to express love and enjoy life and laughter with friends and family!

This sentiment from the Layering Love stamp set is perfect for today’s card. Aren’t big bold sentiments fun? There’s not much you have to do to make a pretty card if you use a big sentiment 🙂

Pretty Pointer:  It’s easy to make a card when you gather all your elements together. I like to do this, and then come up with my card design. The colors and patterns are so beautiful together and they can be very inspiring 🙂  That’s one thing Stampin’ Up! is known for, having lovely color-coordinated papers, inks, and embellishments!

The strip of stars was made using a little multi-star stamp from the Tabs for Everything stamp set. Real Red ink is the perfect ink for this theme. A sheet from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper makes a perfect background for the rest of the card.

A Simple WOW Card With Colorful Seasons!

Stampin’ Up!’s Colorful Seasons stamp set is an all-around great set. It has stamps depicting every season of the year, and great sentiments that you don’t find too often…like the sentiment on today’s card.

Today’s card is a SNAP to make and has a big WOW factor! How do you create a simple WOW card? Bright colors and a bold sentiment ~ those are key!

Pretty Pointer ~ Make a quick, fun ribbon tie! Here the gorgeous Lemon Lime Twist ribbon is wrapped once around the center of a 2-1/2″ square Whisper White panel with long ends left loose on the left side. A piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine is used to tie the ends together, first in a knot to secure them tightly and then with a bow to finish it off.

The picture below shows you all the great stamps and dies included in this bundle. This is a set I’ll definitely be using into fall and winter ~ I mean, look at those pretty leaves and snowflakes! And that adirondack chair is so cute!!

In fact, if you like to get started on holiday cards early (like July!) this would be a great stamp set to start with 🙂

Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to pop back on July 1st as I’ll have some exciting news for you!!
