Stamp Simply May 2024 New Release- Eucalyptus Silhouettes

 



Hi Friends!

Today, I am sharing a very card designed using the brand new release stamp set, Eucalyptus Silhouettes from Stamp Simply (this set also has a coordinating die set and comes as a bundle). 


Sometimes you need to a quick sympathy card and this one was very easy to create:



Using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and a stencil brush, apply ink over a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of white cardstock (to resemble clouds- this is hard to see in the photo).  Heat set the ink with a heat tool.

Ink the Eucalyptus Silhouette images using a variety of green inks and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock around the edges.

De-static an area in the upper right hand part of the panel with an embossing powder tool, ink the sympathy sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink, stamp onto the prepared panel, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Trim the panel to approx. 3 ¾” x 5”, mount onto light green cardstock, trim and mount onto pale blue cardstock, trim and mount onto a white card base.




Add a strip of the white scallop braid trim to the card front and a strip of blue gingham designerpaper along the inside left hand side of the card base to finish off the card.

If you have not had a chance to check out the rest of my Sister Design Team cards on the Stamp Simply blog, I hope you take the time to do so- spectacular inspiration from all!!

Happy Mother's Day Iris

 



Hi Friends!

Happy Mother’s Day weekend!  Today I am sharing a fairly easy Mother’s Day card using stamps, dies, and paper all from Stamp Simply

This card incorporates an embossing folder as well as heat embossing, a bit of lace and seam binding, pretty designer paper, a die cut oval and a few pearls!




My mother loved spring when the irises would start to bloom- lilacs and irises were her favorite!  Purple is one of my favorite colors so I decided to create this card in honor of her.

 To create this card:

Using the Brickwork 3D embossing folder, emboss a piece of white cardstock, die cut an oval in the upper right area, tear off the bottom edge and set aside.



De-static a piece of the purple woodgrain patterned paper from the Beach Hut 6x6 paper pad (approx. 4 ¼” x 5 ¼”), ink the “Wishing You A” sentiment from Happy Day Iris with Versafine Onyx Black ink (positioning it to fit within the oval die cut), apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Trim the brickwork embossed layer to fit over the sentiment and mount onto the Beach Hut paper (do not adhere on the lower left hand side of the oval to allow room for the banner sentiment in the next step), trim and onto lilac cardstock.

De-static a piece of black cardstock, ink the “Mother’s Day” sentiment from Happy Day Iris with Versamark ink and stamp onto the prepared panel.

Apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Die cut the sentiment with the Fishtail Sentiment Banners die, insert into the oval die cut and add dimensional foam under the banner.

Layer the lace near the bottom of the card front, add the lilac seam binding, wrapping the ends behind the panel.

Create a bow from the lilac seam binding, adhere the panel to a white card base.

Ink the iris image from Happy Day Iris with Versafine Black Onyx ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Die cut the image with the coordinating die, color with water-based markers and adhere with dimensional foam to the card front.

Add a strip of the purple designer paper to the left hand side of the inside panel of the card base and finish off the card with a few pearls in the upper left hand corner of the card front.

God Bless the USA

 


Hi Friends!

I hope all of you are enjoying your week!  Today I am sharing a very easy patriotic card using stamps, dies, and paper all from Stamp Simply



When I first received The Fourth of July paper pad, the flag design on this piece of the paper seemed to call out to me to create a simple card so the flag design would show. 



To create this card:

Trim the flag patterned piece of designer paper from The Fourth of July 6x6 paper pad to approx. 4” x 5 ¼”.

De-static the paper with an embossing powder tool, ink the sentiment from Patriotic Sentiments with Versafine Onyx Black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Mount the panel onto white cardstock, trim and mount onto black cardstock before adhering to a white card base.

Add the strip of the remaining piece of the designer paper onto the left hand side of the inner part of the card ( I used the opposite side of the paper). 



Die cut the three stars from silver mirror cardstock using the star dies from the Stars & Stripes dies, mount onto the card front with dimensional foam to finish off the card.

Summer Roses

 



Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing another quick floral card created with stamps, dies, lace and paper all from Stamp Simply.  

I decided to pair two stamp sets, Floral Clusters- Summer Roses and Worship & Praise along with the gorgeous Vivid Ink Drops 6x6 paper from Craft Consortium.



I just love the Ink Drops paper collections from Craft Consortium- they are all gorgeous and so dramatic :-) ! 




To create this card:

Trim the piece of Vivid Ink Drops designer paper to approx. to 3 ¾” x 5” and layer the piece of pink satin lace onto the panel.

Mount the layered background onto a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ¼” white cardstock, layer onto a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” black cardstock and mount onto a white card base.

Stamp the verse sentiment from the  Worship & Praise using Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set the ink with a heat tool.



Once the embossing has cooled, die cut with the middle sized tag die (again, cutting a second tag from white cardstock to layer behind the sentiment),

Mount the tag sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Stamp the floral image from Floral Cluster- Summer Roses using Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set the ink with a heat tool.

Watercolor the image with water-based markers before die cutting with the coordinating Floral Cluster die (I also die cut an additional floral shape from plain white cardstock to layer behind the colored image).



Mount the floral image onto the card front with dimensional foam.

Finish off the card with pearls in the center of the flowers and a few along the lower right hand corner of the tag sentiment.
