Enjoy the Moments

Enjoy the Moments with simple stamping and with fun new ways to color your stamps. In the following video replay from my January 6th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, I'll show you an example of simple stamping with the Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set. Plus, I'll show you 2 ways to add multiple colors to a single stamp to make a big impact on your Corner Bouquet cards. I think you'll enjoy both styles of stamping and give them both a try.

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.

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.

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.

These felt flowers with bead centers come in two sizes in the Boho Indigo Product Medley and the Refill Pack. Just add a Mini Glue Dot to the back and add to your cards and other paper crafts.

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.

Cut it up. Change it up.

Who would have thought that you could cut up a beautiful stamped image only to make it into a totally different card. Check out the card sketch I used in my July 13th  Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live. This one is so easy and fun, that it will have you asking yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?" Get all the details in in the video demonstration below.

I chose to color the Ornate Style flowers with Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils in Melon Mambo, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Granny Apple Green, and Old Olive.Ornate Style & Ornate Thanks Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up!


Ornate Style & Ornate Thanks Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up!

I stamped this sentiment of gratitude from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set on the inside of my card.

I have a feeling the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set in the 2020 Holiday Catalog (going live August 4th) is going to be very popular. Its images and sentiments are beautiful and classic.

The Beaded Pearl embellishments are absolutely gorgeous and add such a pretty touch to the centers of your stamped and die cut poinsettias.

I would not have thought of using the Bumblebee color in a traditional poinsettia card. Bumblebee is one of the featured colors in the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. It really works with the other colors in the paper.

Simple & Elegant

Simple and elegant is the best way to describe today's cards. The Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is fabulous for so many reasons. I love creating with the stamp set and coordinating Many Layered Blossoms Dies. These simple and elegant Blossoms in Bloom cards are wonderful all occasion cards. Use them as note cards or to express sympathy, thoughts of you, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, promotions, retirement, and more. Tone on tone cards such as these perform well as simple and elegant cards.

These cards are elegant in both Whisper White and Very Vanilla.Many Layered Blossoms Dies & Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

TIP:  Use Adhesive Sheets with card stock to die cut & adhere the die cut pieces to your card fronts easily.

The Gray Granite 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon adds a nice pop of color without taking away from the card's simplicity and elegance.

This close up view allows you to see the detail in the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and the Many Layered Blossoms Die.

I can't decide which I like better, the Whisper White card above or the Very Vanilla card below. Which is your favoite?
Many Layered Blossoms Dies & Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

The woven ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack matches our Very Vanilla card stock perfectly.
Many Layered Blossoms Dies & Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

What other Stampin' Up! colors would you use to make these simple & elegant tone-on-tone cards? Petal Pink is on my mind.

Want to make these simple and elegant cards a bit fancier? Consider adding a bit of metallic or glitter paper with a few small die cut flowers or perhaps some embellishments such as small Metallic Pearls or gold Gilded Gems. We have even more embellishment to choose from. What will you choose?
