Lovely You Simple Stamping Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you this Stampin’ Up! Lovely You Simple Stamping card. ‘Simple Stamping’ cards are those which require only stamps, ink and card, and as such, are great for beginners or for when you are short on time. This Stamp Set will be available in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. To request your copy click here.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you’ll find my video tutorial.

This card was created for a CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. The sketch is shown below. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in here.

Here is my project (and card making doesn’t get much simpler than this)…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. The three different foliage images are stamped directly onto the card in Shaded Spruce, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz ink. The flowers are stamped in Highland Heather ink.

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock and trimmed using the Paper Trimmer. This is simply adhered to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

This is such a quick and simple card to create but still manages to pack a real punch! You could even produce it using only two ink pads if you only have one shade of green!

What do you think?

Do you enjoy Simple Stamping? I find these types of project are great when I am short on time or if I am batch making cards. They are also perfect for introducing friends or family to card making if they have never done it before.

SU Magnolia Lane Card

Hello and welcome! Today I wanted to share with you a card I created using the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia Lane Suite. This is a gorgeous Suite and I loved it as soon as I saw it but, for some reason, I haven’t used it as much as I should have!

The inspiration for this card came from a sketch challenge hosted by CAS(E) This Sketch – click the link to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in! The sketch for this challenge is shown below…

I decided to use the Magnolia Lane Suite as I thought the Designer Series Paper (DSP) would work really well with this sketch. Here is my card…

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Petal Pink cardstock. This is followed by a 10.2 x 14.6 cm layer or Basic Black cardstock.

I have then cut two pieces of the Magnolia Lane DSP as suggested by the sketch.

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Petal Pink cardstock. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. The flower is cut out of Basic Black cardstock using the Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The whole piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Pearl Basic Jewels which have been coloured with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends.

Simple Ornate Garden Card

Hello and welcome to Part 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Ornate Garden Suite Showcase. If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… part 1, 2 and 3.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

It’s very tempting with this Suite to do as the name suggests and create ‘ornate’ projects. However, I wanted to showcase something simpler and was inspired by the latest CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in by clicking the link above. The sketch for the latest challenge is shown below…

I immediately thought about using strips of Designer Series Paper (DSP) as the focal point of my project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Old Olive cardstock and this is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock.

I cut three different lengths from three different sheets of the Ornate Garden DSP and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set and is stamped in Old Olive ink directly on to the card front.

This is such a simple card but I love the clean, fresh look. If you have any questions or comments please leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Next time…

Next month my Suite Showcase will be replaced by a Retiring Product Showcase! Normal service will be resumed in June!

See A Silhouette Card

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for a Sketch Challenge. The sketch is shown below. If you would like to find out more about these challenges, see the other entries or join in, you can visit the CAS(E) this Sketch website here.

I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Label Me Bold Stamp Set. Here is my project…

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a slightly smaller layer of Poppy Parade cardstock and a smaller again layer of the See A Silhouette DSP.

I have cut two pieces of the DSP using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and these are adhered to the left hand side of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I have also heat embossed a few of the pattern stamps from the same stamp set. The sentiment piece is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This is such a quick and simple card to create but the bright colours of the See A Silhouette DSP really give it a fun and cheerful feel.
