Black & White with a Pop of Color

I love black and white cards. I love them even more with a "pop of color". The True Love Designer Series Paper lends itself to these types of cards so easily. Use the True Love DSP as is but add color with bits of card stock, ribbon, and/or embellishments. I used Just Jade for my pops of color on the following 6 cards. These are so easy to make as they all use the same dimensions - making it easy to make lots of great cards fast to use now or build up your stash for later use. 

Oval Occasions Bundle & True Love Designer Series Paper

I love layering punched shapes to add more interest to cards and make my sentiments stand out.

Matte Black Dots are a perfect embellishment for these black & white cards with a pops of Just Jade color.

So Lucky to Know You

In today's post I have a video replay of a recent Facebook Live in which I demonstrate an easy-to-make Fun Fold Card and show you how to create shamrocks with the Heart Punch Pack. The Old Olive with metallic gold paper is from the Ornate garden Suite and makes these St. Patrick's Day cards elegant. And whether you're Irish or not, these cards are a nice way to express love and gratitude to those we are so lucky to know.

Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set & Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I created the following 2 cards with 2 different techniques for adding multiple ink colors to a single stamp. Be sure to view the video above for technique demonstrations. They're fun and easy to do and make a big impact!

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I colored my rubber stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Melon Mambo, Bumblebee, Highland Heather, Soft Suede, and Shaded Spruce. Then I "huffed" on the stamp to remoisten the inks and stamped on Basic White card stock.
Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!I used Shaded Spruce card stock to back the Basic White card stock for this card.

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

I used a different stamping technique to add multiple ink colors to my Corner Bouquet stamp for this card. This technique used Sponge Daubers and Ink Pads to add the various colors to my rubber stamp. Be sure to "huff" or breathe heavily on the inked stamp to remoisten the inks before stamping on Basic White card stock.

Corner Bouquet & Enjoy the Moments Stamp Sets with Stitched with Whimsy Dies by Stampin' Up!

For a simple change, I used Bumblebee card stock to back the Basic White card stock on this card.

Quite Curvy Hello Note Card

It's nice to send a pretty card simply to say hello to a friend or loved one who you haven't see in a long time or who you know needs a little pick me up or to know they are thought of. This card is perfect for that person. The card is simple and quick to make. The gold hoop adds a fun element to this wreath card. The sentiment and flowers are from the Quiet Curvy Bundle. And with such bright colors as Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party, whose days wouldn't be made just a bit brighter with this card?

No extra layers of card stock or Designer Series Paper for this simply beautiful card.

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!I prefer to use Whisper White THICK card stock for my white card bases as it is much sturdier and stands up better than our original Whisper White card stock that is intended for layering. The same holds true for Very Vanilla card bases. 

Quite Curvy Stamp Set & Curvy Dies by Stampin' Up!
What a nice impact this Gold Hoop Embellishment adds. It makes this simple card a bit fancy!

 

TIPS for making this card: 

  • For adhering the Gold Hoop Embellishments, use a few Mini Glue Dots rolled up or even a few tiny pieces of Tear & Tape rolled. You don't need adhesive all the way around the Gold Hoop. Just 3-4 spots with good adhesive will hold your Gold Hoop in place nicely.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Black Momento Ink or in color of your choice.
  • I stamped 2 floral sprigs in Black Momento Ink and colored with Stampin' Blends in Magenta Madness, Granny Apple Green, and Pool Party.
  • Die cut both floral sprigs. Then cut one of them into 2 pieces (1 very small piece and 1 longer piece) and tuck and adhere these underneath the Gold Hoop. The other floral sprig I placed over the top of the hoop using Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
  • Use a Mini Glue Dot behind the knot of the bow to adhere it to the bottom of the floral wreath.

Boho Indigo Note Cards

I have to admit, creating with the Boho Indigo Product Medley makes me happy. The simple color scheme of Misty Moonlight, Very Vanilla, and Metallic Gold Accents, the variety of designs in the Designer Series Paper, the elegant gold ribbon and texture of the blue ribbon, the felt flowers with bead center, the numerous die cuts, and, last but not least, the stamp set and coordinating dies. I love it all! The possibilities are endless for making wonderful cards for any occasion or note cards like the two I made below.

Here are two of several cards I've created with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. Be sure to download the Free PDF Project Sheets I made for you so you can make these cards too.

Boho Indigo is BEAUTIFUL!

Finally, I took some time to create with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. What a beautiful assortment of products from the stamp set and dies to the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, many sheets of cut outs in Very Vanilla and metallic gold, two ribbons, and felt flower embellishments. It truly is a great value at $70. This is the first card I made with the Boho Indigo products. I'll definitely be making many more.

I love the gold accents of the labels in the Boho Indigo Product Medley.

Ah, I love this card in every way. It has so many details yet is simple and elegant too. This card would be wonderful for so many reasons or occasions. Or don't put a sentiment on it and use it as a note card.

Life is Beautiful!

Life is beautiful. Sometimes in the midst of pain, illness, isolation, stress, hurt, and loss it can be hard to see the beauty in our world. But then, if we look closely, we can see beauty all around us, in the faces of our family, friends, and loved ones. We can see beauty in the comfort in our homes. We can see beauty in the eyes of a child, and the wrinkles of someone who has lived a long full life. It's also nice to step outside and see the beauty in nature no matter the time of year, new buds in spring, all shades of green in the trees in summer, the many shades of autumn, and in the glittering frost of winter. We just need to take time to observe, see what's around us, and be grateful for that beauty.

Stampin' Up!'s Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper was so popular in 2019, they brought it back for us in 2020 as a "Returning Fave". This paper shows true beauty of nature in the winter with its soft colors and delicate images of frozen droplets, snow, and frost on evergreens, leaves leftover from fall, and barren branches. 

Below are cards I made with the beautiful Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper. They layout is quite simple and the same for each card. I wanted to focus on the beauty depicted in the various papers without a lot of embellishing. If you've never done this "window pane" layout, you can see me demonstrate it with this link:  https://bit.ly/32JnUbf. The Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set is featured in our 2020 Holiday Catalog.
