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.
It can be hard making handmade cards for guys. The Cactus Cuties stamp set and Cactus Builder punch are perfect for making masculine cards when you pair them with neutral colors like Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, and Soft Succulent. These cards have a modern feel while appealing to everyone.
I also used a number of rubber stamping and card making techniques on these cards, like masking and embossing. You'll want to check out the video to see exactly how the demo card was made.
All of the cutting dimensions for my demo card are below.
Don't forget, I'm live every Thursday evening at 8pm Eastern on YouTube with more fabulous card making ideas for you!
Tuesday, we stamped and played games in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook group for the November Card Class & Game Night. This month, we made three cards with the Christmas Season and Christmas to Remember stamp sets from Stampin' Up!
If you missed it, I hope you'll join me on January 25, 2022 for the next Card Class & Game Night. We'll be using the new Sweet Conversations stamp set. Watch for more details coming soon!
Be sure to read through my whole post to see all the samples and supply lists. Ok, on y go! Let's get stamping.
I got a little sneak peek of the 2022 January-June Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! last week. I am in LOVE with this new Rainbow of Happiness stamp set and dies! They are so cheery and just plain happy! PLUS, during Sale-a-Bration 2022 in January and February, there is a coordinating 6"x6" patterned paper that you can get for FREE with a $50 order. How awesome is that?!?
I have lots of handmade card ideas with the new Rainbow of Happiness stamp set here - from simple stamping ideas with just stamps, ink, and paper, to fun fold card designs! However, I received some other patterned papers and stamp sets too that I haven't played with yet. Be sure to watch the video to see all of the items I received in my sneak peek box!
Whether you want to make a super simple Christmas card, a fun birthday card, or a fancy holiday card, the Peaceful Place patterned paper is the perfect solution. It's so elegant! I have three fabulous handmade card ideas to share with you today.
I'm also hopping with the fabulous cardmakers of the Pretty Cards & Papers International Design Team. This month, we've created some awesome projects with the Peaceful Place patterned paper. It was hard to tear myself away from all my stamps and papers that arrived yesterday (you can check out the video here), but this patterned paper is so beautiful that I was soon happily crafting away some fun wintry cards.
After you've seen my card samples, be sure to read through to the bottom for the list of designer's blog. If you live in the US and need stamps, inks, papers, and more, I would love to help you! Email me or leave me a comment if you have questions.
