Six Super Simple Greeting Cards

Using the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards along with the coordinating Cards & Envelopes, I was able to quickly make these six cards. I love the colors and that it coordinates with the other products in the Happiness Blooms Suite.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Set.jpg

Watch the video to see all six cards. I add embellishments at the end!

I used a 4x6 and a 3x4 Memories & More card for this one. The smaller card was backed with a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of Night of Navy Cardstock and then popped up with Dimensionals. One of the stickers was added below the sentiment.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card1.jpg

The 3x4 Memories & More card was backed with a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 layer of Pineapple Punch Cardstock and popped up with Dimensionals. Some of the Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots were added to finish it off.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card2.jpg

This is probably the most complicated card but believe me, it was easy. A piece of Pineapple Punch Ribbon was adhered around the 4x6 Memories & More Card and then attached to the card base. I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment with Night Of Navy Ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and then punched it with the Pretty Label Punch. A second label was punched in Night of Navy and then cut in half and adhered to the white label to give it a background layer. This was attached using Dimensionals and then a bow was attached with a glue dot. Some of the stickers were added and then some Pineapple Punch Enamel Dots added to the centers to make them pop.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card3.jpg

This is one of the smaller notecards. I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set with Lovely Lipstick Ink. A few Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots were added to step it up a little.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card4.jpg

This was really easy; just a 3x4 Memories & More Card attached to the small card base.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card5.jpg

For this one I just attached a 4x6 Memories & More Card on the larger card base.

Floral Romance Feminine Birthday Card

The Floral Romance Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous! Some of the sheets are vellum and I love the floral design on the one I used on these cards. I backed the vellum with Whisper White to make it brighter.

Floral Romance Collage.jpg

The video below will walk you through step by step on how to make this card.

The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set. That’s a good one to have for birthday sentiments. I cut a Whisper White label using the Stitched Label Framelits and then stamped the sentiment in Fresh Fig. The Frosted Flower Embellishments add a nice touch to bring it all together. I love how everything coordinates so well with Stampin’ Up! products.

St. Patrick's Day - Good Luck Card

When I first saw this Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper, I thought about St. Patrick’s Day and shamrocks. I knew I had to make some sort of shamrock card with it. Does that ever happen to you? You see something and immediately start thinking about how you are going to use it? Well, here’s what I came up with!

Shamrock Card2.jpg

You can watch the video below to see how I pieced it all together.

Going through my framelits I found the perfect heart to make a shamrock with from the Support Ribbon set. I cut out three hearts from Call Me Clover Cardstock and then pieced them together to make the shamrock. I cut a stem freehand. To cover the center, I added a Happiness Blooms Enamel Dot and then adhered 3 dots at the bottom right to pull it altogether.

Shamrock Card.jpg

Measurements:

  • Call Me Clover Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

  • Happiness Blooms DSP - 5 1/4 x 4

  • Call Me Clover Layer - 4 1/8 x 2 3/4

  • Whisper White Stitched Rectangle - 4th largest

  • Scraps of Call Me Clover for hearts and stem

The inside is pretty simple; I stamped 3 clover images from the Amazing Life Stamp Set. I’ll write Happy St. Patrick’s Day and a note.

Home To Roost - Just A Note

Here’s one more card with the rooster. I just couldn’t get enough of this stamp set.

Home To Roost Just A Note Card.jpg

This is free during Sale-A-Bration which ends March 31, 2019. The rooster image is great for masculine cards and I love the sentiments. I stamped the Just a note…. sentiment with Memento Black Ink on a 1/2” strip of Whisper White and then layered it on a 3/4” strip of Basic Black. The Banner Triple Punch was used to get the banner ends.

Home To Roost Just A Note Stamp Set.jpg

  • Calypso Coral Card Base - 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4

Home To Roost - Masculine Birthday Card

This week I’m working with the Home To Roost Stamp Set which is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order. This is a great birthday card for a guy don’t ya think?

Home To Roost Birthday Card.jpg

Start off with a Bermuda Bay card base (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4). Layer a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Early Espresso and then add a 5 x 3 3/4 piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (one of my favorites).

Home To Roost Birthday Card Pieces.jpg

Stamp the Sentiment (from Perennial Birthday) in Bermuda Bay and the Rooster in Memento Black Ink. Then color using Stampin’ Blends (Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie) The hill was colored with Light Crumb Cake.

Home To Roost Birthday Card Coloring.jpg

I wanted to stamp the grasses around the rooster without getting it on the rooster so I used the Masking Technique. To do this, stamp the image on a Post-It Note and cut around it. I cut close just at the bottom but didn’t do much with the top because I wasn’t going to stamp to high over the rooster. Adhere the Post-It Note over the stamped rooster.

Home To Roost Birthday Card Masking.jpg

Stamp the grasses with Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped direct and then without re-inking stamped again to get different shades.

Home To Roost Birthday Card Masking2.jpg

Lift off the Post-It Note and you will see the rooster is clean, it was protected from the ink.

Home To Roost Birthday Card Masking3.jpg

I wanted to add some gems to the card so I colored 3 Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends Marker. These were added to the top left corner.

Home To Roost Birthday Card Rhinestones.jpg

The sentiment on the inside is from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set as well. It was stamped with Bermuda Bay Ink and the grasses were stamped with Crumb Cake Ink using the same method of stamping direct and then stamping a second time without re-inking.

Home To Roost - Masculine Card

The Home To Roost Stamp Set is a great one to have to make masculine cards and its FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order.

Home To Roost Both.jpg

The Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper has some great patterns and I had this Balmy Blue paper in mind for a sky background for a while. I thought about it when I saw the Rooster stamp. The Crumb Cake pattern with the dots, coordinates so well with it.

Take a look at the video to follow along with me while I make the card.

I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the rooster. This one was colored with Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie and Balmy Blue. I used some Crumb Cake to color the hill he’s standing on.

I used the masking technique to stamp the grasses around him with Crumb Cake Ink. The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso Ink.

Home To Roost Card.jpg

For this card, I swapped out the Poppy Parade with Calypso Coral. The Burlap Ribbon adds a nice rustic touch to finish off the card.

Home To Roost Card2.jpg

For the inside, I just stamped the grasses in Crumb Cake Ink. I stamped straight on and then stamped again without re-inking to get a lighter shade.

Painted Seasons Thank You

Here’s another card I made using the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (DSP). I love how well it coordinates with Poppy Parade Ink and Cardstock.

Painted Seasons Thank You.jpg

The card base is Poppy Parade (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4) with a 5 1/4 x 4 layer of Whisper White Cardstock. The banner pieces are 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 (Poppy Parade) and 1 5/8 x 4 1/4.

Painted Seasons Thank You Pieces.jpg

The Dot To Dot Embossing folder gives you such a fun look and I think it goes well with the little dots on the mushrooms.

_Painted Seasons Thank You Embossing.jpg

Using the Banner Triple Punch, I punched the tail end of the DSP and the background layer. I punch them together and then offset a bit at the tail and cut any extra at the top to make them even.

Painted Seasons Thank You Tag.jpg

The sentiment is from the Humming Along Stamp set and it was punched out using the Story Label Punch which will be available March 1 thru March 31. I colored some Pearls with a Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Marker. I love how you can coordinate everything with the same color.

Painted Seasons Thank You Pearls.jpg

I like how it came out. Its a bright and fun card to give to someone.

Masculine Valentine Card

Sometimes you need to add a little wood to a project to make it more masculine. Valentines are usually so pretty; what about the guys? Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to the rescue!!!

Masculine Valentine Card Both.jpg

The Be Mine Stitched Framelits have so many different options. I just love all the hearts that are connected together. Take a look at my video below to see how I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere the hearts.

The card base is Lovely Lipstick Cardstock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4). I stamped the sentiment with Lovely Lipstick Ink on a layer of Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4 x 4). All the hearts were cut from the Wood Texture DSP and I love all the shading of the wood.

Masculine Valentine Card.jpg

The sentiment on the inside is from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set. I added some of the extra hearts from the cutout to the inside.

Sunset In The Desert

Today’s card has a beautiful desert scene using the Flowering Desert Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

Flowering Desert Hi There Card Both.jpg

I created the sunset by sponging the Whisper White layer with Pineapple Punch Ink using a Sponge Brayer. I then took a sponge and added some Calypso Coral. I am happy with how it came out. The Fresh Fig layer behind the scene was embossed using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Check out the video to see how I did this.

Great Masculine Thank You Card

Today I made a masculine Thank You card for some men at my church who help out with small projects for my widow’s group. They are an awesome group of men and have really come through for some of the women. I used products from the Classic Garage Suite in the Occasions Catalog.

Masculine Thank You Card .jpg

This is a great stamp set for masculine cards. It’s perfect for Father’s Day, Birthdays and of course Thank You cards. There is a coordinating 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack with images relating to cars, tool, tire tracks and most have a grungey look….is that a word?

Masculine Thank You Card Pieces.jpg

Layer the DSP on the card base the the two strips of DSP together and adhere to card base.

Masculine Thank You Card Layers.jpg

Stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White tag with Tranquil Tide Ink. I used the sentiment from the Flowering Desert Stamp Set. You can use whatever fits the tag. Cut the Classic Garage DSP label in half and then adhere to the back side of the label leaving a space so that it gives you a nice boarder. I used Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue so I can adjust it a little before the glue dries.

Masculine Thank You Card Tag.jpg

Look at these Classic Garage Metal Elements! They are just perfect for a guy card. Some are keys and some are wrenches. I used a very small piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive to make sure it sticks good; it has some weight to it.

Masculine Thank You Card Wrench.jpg

For the inside I used the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set. The tool box was stamped in Real Red with a stamp from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set.

Sweet and Simple Valentine's Day Card

Ready to make a quick Valentine’s Card? I used the Meant To Be Stamp set to make my own background paper. Aren’t they pretty?

Meant To Be Valentine Both2.jpg

Starting with the largest heart image, I inked it with Lovely Lipstick Ink and then stamped off (stamp on scrap first) and then stamped on the cardstock layer. I stamped randomly and made sure I went off the paper. Next, I inked the smaller heart with Lovely Lipstick and stamped directly onto the cardstock layer. Last was the smallest heart which I stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink.

Meant To Be Valentine Single.jpg

The first one has a piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon wrapped around it and this one below has a strip of All My Love Designer Series Paper adhered to the base. Which do you like better? The Hearty Epoxy Droplets were colored with my Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends and then adhered around the sentiment.

New Cling Stamps from Stampin' Up!

Stampin’ Up! has come out with Cling Stamps. They are red rubber stamps that get mounted on a clear block but boy do they stick. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that I don’t usually put the labels on the stamps because they never seemed to stick to the block. BUT, now they stick so great, you need to put the labels on!

Watch this informative video to learn more about using the Cling Stamps!
