Even if your cards are simple, they can still have a significant impact. Take some time this week to make a few simple cards and send them to friends. No matter what you make, a card made with love is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
This week, our cards highlight the adorable Your Biggest Fan Bundle. For our Hooray card, we stamped the same image multiple times in Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, and Daffodil Delight on Basic White cardstock. We stamped some speckles onto the Balmy Blue cardstock and layered it with a piece of You’re a Peach 12" X 12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Designer Series Paper. We finished with a few Resin Stars for a twinkle.
For our Hourra card, we stamped in So Saffron ink on So Saffron cardstock for a tone-on-tone look. We added texture with So Saffron patterns from the Subtles 6" x 6" (15.2 X 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper Assortment. We loved how bright this card turned out, especially when we added some color with our sentiment. We think that finishing with Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ Dimensionals was the perfect combination to add different levels to the card.
Our Hurra card turned out so cute, and it was so easy to make! We stamped out the sentiment three times, then we die cut some Stitch Stars in So Saffron, Balmy Blue, and Calypso Coral to match our sentiment colors. We assembled everything on Subtles Designer Series Paper Assortment and used a bit of Baker’s Twine to finish it all off.
Happy Simple Stampin
Whether you want to keep it simple or go the extra mile, let someone know you “chews” them with one of these fabulous cards!
We started by layering Basic White onto Bermuda Bay cardstock. We stamped and die cut the cute gumball machine from the Gumball Greeting Bundle, then stamped out a stripe pattern in Granny Apple Green. Finally, we stamped out a few gumballs in Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo and then added an adorable sentiment.
First, we used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to add texture to this card. Next, we colored Watercolor Paper with Bermuda Bay ink and then stamped and die cut the gumball machine. We used Silver Simply Elegant 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper to add some decoration to the machine, and die cut a few gumballs. We finished by stamping Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green stripes onto Basic White cardstock.
For this card we blended Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo ink together with blending brushes, then stamped out the stripe pattern using VersaMark ink. We filled the shaker dome with Frosted Beads Assortment and added some white Baker’s Twine to finish it all off. It turned out so sweet!
If a trip to the tropics isn’t in your budget, a visit to your crafting space with the Artfully Layered Bundle in hand might be the next best thing. This breezy bundle might not include the chatter of parrots or the pungent smell of a tangled jungle, but it will transport you to your creative happy place—where stamping with gorgeous results is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
The handiest thing about these cards? They all share the same color combos and use the same parts and pieces. The genius lies in the arrangement of the card front elements. We simply rearranged paper layers and popped up pieces with Stampin’ Dimensionals to create distinct looks for each card.
Have fun creating these cards—and add your own twist! A fresh color combo could lead you into an entirely new creative adventure with this fabulous bundle, so take a chance and see where it leads!

Welcome to our April Stampin Friends Blog Hop. This month we are focusing on flowers. It's spring here and the flowers are starting to bloom. Next month we celebrate Mother's Day so it's only fitting our theme is All About Flowers. Be sure to hop on to each blog, and leave a comment. If you lose your place along the way, there is a list of hoppers at the bottom of each post. I hope you are visiting me from Jo Blackman's blog. Jo's projects are always beautiful! Visit Melissa Thomas's blog after you finish mine!
I decided in this hop, to offer a little blog candy treat. Normally we do not do this as it's a bit much to manage across countries. But I personally wanted to offer one today! I haven't had much opportunity to craft and so I know I am behind at provide more to my followers, so I want to send a thanks in this hop! I will randomly choose one person who comments on this blog post, and I will send you the completed projects shown, as well as, and unassembled set of both that you can stamp your own images on and put together!!! NOTE: you will need to be loacted in the US as I do not ship outside of the country.
I choice to focus on a few Stampin Up products that will be retiring from our current Annual Catalog. I used Prized Peony stamp setup, All Dressed Up Dies and a mix of the In Colors; Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight.
I used a technique on my card that I haven't used in quite some time. I honestly think I used this way back when I joined Stampin UP and was learning all about stamping! It's a very easy technique and it work perfectly so showcase the Peonies in this stamp set.
Basic White 2" at 4 5 1/4" (one for outside of card and one for inside. 4 1/4"x3" and 2"x3 1/4"
Misty Moonlight Cardstock - 8 1/2"x5 1/2" cardbase. 4 1/2"x3 1/4" and 3 1/2"x2 1/4"
Ink Pads: Cinnamon Cider and Misty Moonlight
Stampin Write Markers: Just Jade and Magenta Madness
Take the Basic White layers (leave one of the 4x5 1/4 for the inside of your card) and add a bit of temporary adhesive to the back, I used the 2-way Glue Pen, because it has a temporary hold, and you can remove the layers after you stamp. See photos below.
first decided if I wanted to have a vertical or horizontal layout. For this one, I choice vertical, you can see in my next card I did horizonal. The process is the same regardless of direction.
I stamped the greeting first in Misty Moonlight. Next, stamp and repeat the image all of the layers, making sure to press down firmly so the stamp gets as close to the edge of the layers. It's ok if it doesn't stamp perfectly near the edges, because you will be adding the layer of cardstock and that will hide that. I colored in the flowers with the Magenta Madness and leaves with Just Jade. Carefully remove each layer.
Now you will adhere each Basic White layer to the coordinating Misty Moonlight Layer. Be sure to keep your images in order so when you finish assembling, they all flow and line up with one another.
I started with the 4x5 1/4" layer and adhered it onto the cardbase. And then the other to layers as follows.
I added a touch of Wink of Stella but it doesn't really show on the cards.
I made this card the same way, but horizontal, and I used the Stampin Write Marker in Bumblebee instead of Magenta Madness!
I love both. I will say I love the Bumblebee color. But I have not used the Magenta Madness that much and I was really surprised how pretty this color is. Which one do you like?
At first, I cut out the tag in white and I didn't end up using it, I liked the bag without a greeting.
I made a little tassel from the twine that is included in the Celebrate Flowers Ribbon bundle. And added the white linen bow. You can fill this bag with so much, candy, socks, little candles, bathsoaps. I mean so much! It's a cute little bag.
In my picture above, I filled some shredded paper, then a little tissue pack, lip balm and hand sanitizer. And I still have room for more. Love it!!!
