I love the new Botanical Layers stamp set in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up!® If you have the catalog near you, it's on page 92. If you don't have a catalog yet, I would love to send you one!
This is a sneak peek of my customer thank you notes for the next month. I love sending each person who orders from me a blank thank you card that they can send on to someone else. Plus, each person who orders from me receives a FREE tutorial bundle, and when your order is over $50 (before shipping and tax), you'll also receive an additional super-sized card making tutorial bundle.
This thank you card is also part of Kylie Bertucci's Demonstrator Training Hop. There are so many awesome thank you card ideas for you this month! Be sure to read all the way through my post and then find the list of designers at the very bottom.
It's hard to believe that it is already the middle of May! Before you know it, Father's Day will be here. The He's the Man suite from Stampin' Up!® is perfect for creating Father's Day cards or other masculine cards. It has you covered! Birthday, anniversary, congratulations - whatever handmade cards you need to make for guys, the He's All That stamp set is perfect. I used it to create a variety of slim line cards.
The suite has the He's All That Stamp set, coordinating dies, Rustic Metallic Dots, and the He's the Man patterned paper. This Designer Series Paper pack is unique because it has 2 sheets of already die-cut images that just pop out. You don't even need the stamps to create great cards. (You can check out a no-stamping card that I made with the paper over here.) This patterned paper will also be amazing for scrapbookers!
I've got lots of samples, supply lists, and dimensions for you below. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
I have another simple card sketch for you this week. This one uses strips of colored cardstock and versamark ink to create a simple background for a sentiment. I have lots of samples for you below, so be sure to read through to the end. Plus, I have a quick-reference guide that you can download and print to save this card sketch for future inspiration for your card making.
This week's Stamp with Me Tuesday was Mystery Stamping and the mystery cards were based on this sketch. It works with any type of stamp and only uses a couple of ink pads which makes it perfect for simple stamping and beginning stampers. But, the results are so beautiful that even the most advanced card maker will want to try it!
If you missed the Mystery Stamping live, you can still watch the replay and play along.
Are you scared of watercoloring? Does it look like it's too difficult and only for "real" artists? With the right tools, watercoloring is much easier than it seems, especially with rubber stamps!
I used the new Happiness Abounds stamp set and the Perfectly Penciled patterned paper from Stampin' Up!® to create some easy watercolored cards.
If you want to see exactly how I did the watercoloring, be sure to watch the replay of the YouTube live that I did. I show you step by step how I colored the flowers for both of these handmade cards.
These new stamps and patterned paper are from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. If you don't have one yet, be sure to pop over to my catalog page and request one. It's so gorgeous and filled with fabulous ideas!
I've got cutting dimensions and supply lists for you below, so, on y go! Let's get stamping.
