Quick & Easy Graduation Cards

I needed to whip up a bunch of graduation cards last weekend for my daughter’s students and my mind went immediately to the Large Letter Framelits Dies (1414712) that are part of the Last Chance List. I’m really going to miss the Letters for You stamp set (141968) and these coordinating dies since they make fast cards that are easily customizable to suit your needs.

Here is what I came up with

I reached for my Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (Last Chance 146964) since I needed multiples – school colors are red and black, a very common due here in Georgia. LOL!

Want to make some for yourself? With our Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks it’s soooo easy to make a bunch simply pick a family that has the color you need and team it up with the 2nd color using the dies!

Here is a quick tutorial for you with the complete supply list, sorry no video today I’m still cleaning up from my Spring Consignment Sale.

Many of these items are on the Last Chance List and are only available while supplies last. If you haven’t already taken a look, why not stop by and look at what is retiring now so you don’t miss out?

Enjoy!

Sentimental Rose Thinking of You Tutorial

Today’s card uses the April Paper Pumpkin Kit stamp set. Sentimental Rose – everyone loves this kit! And I have to say I do too. With it’s DisInktive images and soft colors I can’t get enough of it.

So today’s card is made with the stamp set – I’ve added a second ink color, Brights Designer Series Paper stack, and note cards. Note cards are a great way for new stampers to begin since you have both the card and envelope in one pack!

Here is the card I came up with

Here is a quick video showing you how I put this card together

Crafting Forever Note Pad & Pen Holder

It’s been a rough night here in North Georgia as the storms associated with this latest front moves through, and I’m a bit sleep deprived from the storms. I hope that as you read this you are safe this Easter weekend where ever you are.

Today’s post is going to share the project that I made for my team members as part of their OnStage gifts last weekend.

I’ve had several ask me how they were made – so while I’m using a demonstrator supply item to create these, I’ll be giving you an option so you can make some too. Here is a close up.

These Note Pad & Pen Holders have a 4×6 pad of paper in them that I picked up at my local dollar store. Perfect for jotting tons of notes – I’m always creating a list so I knew these would be great for my Team members too.

Here is a my video tutorial for you

Crafting Forever Note Pad & Pen Holder Video Tutorial

And of course a PDF tutorial too.

Crafting Forever Note Pad & Pen Holder PDF

If you love the floral image I used – you can make some too by using our Floral Grid Paper (150819). This is a special package of our grid paper and it is being offered while supplies last. You can see it in my video and while it isn’t exactly the same – it will work. Simply create a folder using a piece of card stock or even the tag board from your Designer Series Paper pack and cut the grid paper as desired to fit. Yep, it’s that easy! It’s not just grid paper LOL! I’ve included this option in the PDF also.

What do you think? Want to make some too?

Supplies:

Poppin’ Birthday Card Tutorial

I loved the projects that came in the March Paper Box AND the additional stamp set too. What a great value and all the cutting and work was done for me all I had to do was assemble. Of course after that what do you do with all those goodies that are left over? Make something with them of course.

So today’s project uses the stamp set from the kit.

The kit came with the Poppy Parade ink spot so I started there – I added a couple of our great punch shapes and some Poppy Parade and Blueberry Bushel card stock.

So quick and easy to create a bunch of these cards. Check out my quick video tutorial

#imbringingbirthdaysback & it’s a Piece of Cake

Today’s card is one that I made for this month’s birthday cards. I enjoy sending happy mail to my friends and family each month. I know that it’s a great feeling to go to the mail box and get something besides circulars and bills. How about you?

The Piece of Cake stamp set also has a coordinating Cake Builder Punch, but I didn’t use it for this card. Instead I chose to use my Stamparatus since it made stamping this project soooo easy.

Well Said Thank You

Today’s project is a thank you card that I designed to to go with a small gift as a little thank you for those customers that helped me reach my $100,000 in sales.

I whipped up a quick tutorial so that you can make some too. I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper for this project since it coordinated with the note books. I just love the bright, bold, and cheerful colors used in this pack of paper.

Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Tutorial

Today’s card is a fancy fold. This past month one of my team mates, Sue shared the way you can make this card with the rest of us. I couldn’t resist giving it a try with the Beauty Abounds stamp set and our lovely Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE this month.

Here is what I came up with. There are 4 sides to this card so you have Never Ending options. LOL!

You can earn this Sale-a-bration product when you place a minimum purchase for the supplies I used to make this card, or for that matter and purchases. How great is that?

Here we go

Side one:


two:

three:

and four – which contains the final sentiment piece.

This card is sure to impress!

Want to see how I made it now? I’ve tweaked a few things that Sue showed us since I found it easier for me to put it together this way. So here is my video tutorial for you.

So why not give it a try?

Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Video Tutorial

Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Tutorial PDF

This card can seem pretty complex until you break it down one side at a time – and of course the more you “work it” by opening all four sides in order the easier it gets, since the card will kind of have a “memory” of its movement.

And it’s a special sized card, so it won’t fit in a standard envelope; so you can make your own envelope for it using the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and the Envelope Punch Board (133774). Making it extra special for that special person who receives it!

Just a tip: For a more complicated card like this I like to keep a “pattern” that I’ve made with scratch paper or card stock with the directions – so the next time I want to make one I have a reference to look at too.

Enjoy!

And stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some of the wonderful projects my team members brought to the March meeting to share.

Stamp Set: Beauty Abounds (148726)

#simplestamping with Paper Pumpkin

Today’s project is one that I created using the February Paper Pumpkin stamp set, Blooming with Kindness. I LOVE these kits it makes stamping so quick and easy since everything is in the kit it’s definitely #onestopstamping and perfect for taking with you or giving as a gift because everything you need is included including adhesive. It’s great for all ages too.

After putting my kit projects together I was itching to get started on this little note card.

I wanted to the cup to look delicate like china so I reached for my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends since I like teaming this color up with Mint Macaron which I knew I wanted to use for the succulent. Petal Pink is soft and feminine too which was the look I was going for.

So what do you think? I really like the way this note card turned out and knew I could make a bunch more since the Note Cards come in sets of 20 AND the note cards include the envelopes too! A great budget friendly option at just $6.50.

If you haven’t already used them Stampin’ Blends are sooooo easy to work with check out my video to see just how easy they are! And I love building my collection of Blends by choosing my colors to work with the stamp set I’ve already have. I know that I’ll use them right away that way too.
