Flourishing Phrases Card Set & Holder Tutorial

Today’s project is a fun one that creates a lovely set of cards with a holder. It’s done in a soft and subtle classic color combo too so it’s a perfect gift for all kinds of occasions.

Why not create some for your gift giving needs? While we are sheltering and place and have a bit of time at home it’s a great time to plan ahead and get some things done for this years holiday season. Yes, you heard me right, holiday season. I’ve been creating hand stamped projects for gift giving not only to have on hand but to get ahead of the busy holiday season too! Plus as an added bonus stamping and creating reduces my stress level too since it is a chance to relax in my craft space.

And since this set of cards doesn’t require a huge list of supplies to create it’s perfect for those who are beginning to build their stamping supplies too or just want to get something new.

This stamp set has some great images along with a variety of sentiments done in a lovely font – so it is perfect and very versatile for all kinds of projects!

I’ve quickly whipped up a printable tutorial for you today since I wanted to share this with you earlier and it got buried under things in my studio. So why not check it out?

#simplestamping with Painted Poppy

I’ve loving all you can do with the Painted Poppies stamp set and today I’ve teamed it up with the So Sentimental Stamp set for a #simplestamping project that is my March thank you card.

This card is #simplestamping since it only requires 2 ink pads and card stock. It’s also a great for new stampers since you can combine the sentiment set with the image set of your choice.

I’ve used one of my favorite colors – Coastal Cabana to create these wonderful bright poppies. And since poppies come in all kinds of colors you could change it up with your own color choice.

Here is a quick video for you so you can see just how simple this card is to make!

Lovely Day Note Card Tutorial

The Lovely Day stamp set is found in the February Paper Pumpkin Kit and is just beautiful. So I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and start creating. Here is what I came up with.

I reached for my Note Cards & Envelopes (144236) since not only is this a great size, but it is wonderful choice since you get both the card base and envelopes in one package at a great price, making it a economical choice. I’ve colored it with our Stampin’ Blends. I love this coloring choice since it gives us such vivid colors and they really are sooo easy to work with. And coloring is relaxing too which is an added bonus, right?

Here is a quick video showing you how I created this card.

Dressed to Impress Shoe Box Swap Tutorial

As promised today I’ll be sharing the card I designed for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Shoe Box Swap that I hosted last weekend. I really love the way this card turned out. Lovely Lipstick just seemed to be a perfect choice for this card since I was choosing the lipstick image.

Lovely Lily Pad Easel Calendar

It’s a week of tutorials and today I’ll be starting with a project that uses several of our FREE Sale-a-bration products that coordinate together. When I first saw this Sale-a-bration option I knew it was one I wanted to add to my collection and would reach for over and over again! I shared with you my January #imbringingbirthdaysback birthday card I made earlier HERE.

And since I thought it would be a lot of fun to kick the year off with calendars for my stamping friends here is what I came up with.

I’m still in the process of putting them together, but I wanted to share this with you – so if you’re a customer of mine watch for one coming to your mail box soon!

Can you name the set the sentiment is from without looking?

The “Happy Day” sentiment for this project is from one of my favorite sentiment sets, Itty Bitty Greetings. This set holds 32 greetings that cover all kinds of occasions, so it’s a great value and wonderful to team up with your favorite image sets.

Easel fancy folds are perfect for setting this calendar up on your desk and enjoying it though out the year, and with this Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper it’s like looking at a little piece of art.

Paper Pumpkin Winter Woods Note Card Tutorial

The Winter Wonders Kit is a lot of fun to work with. It is filled with beautiful winter scenes and while I had pieces left over from the kit, I wanted to create a note card that just used the stamps. Here is what I came up with.

I simply took my Night of Navy spot and added the Coastal Cabana spot (from a past kit) and Poppy Parade Classic Ink. The punch makes the sentiment easy since and also adds some interest.

Clean and simple – a great winter card and since I used our Whisper White Note Cards, I had 20 card bases and envelopes to start crating with for just $7

Here is a quick video tutorial for you that I share how I did this card.
