Purple Poppies

I always thought poppies were red in color, but when I googled it, I found out there is a wide array of colors! So, I chose to use one of my favorite colors, Highland Heather! I love the stamp with a bunch of poppies! They make a wonderful focal point and it keeps the card simple!

I made this card for my quarterly team gathering and I will also showcase it for my February Sweet & Simple class! This card is so easy to make-you can finish it in 10 minuets! First, stamp the bunch of poppies with Memento Black ink and color with the Highland Heather Blends. Then adhere it to a Basic Black mat that has the Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkle Seam Ribbon. But, did you notice it was green?? I love white ribbon-you can always coordinate your card with Blends! I used the Dark Granny Apple Green for this one!

I finished it off with the single poppy stamped in color on color and the sentiment! Love love the way this card turned out!

Guess what is coming out today?? Coordination dies!!! Sqeee! As a demo, we were able to purchase them during the pre-order.

Check out all the cute dies as Brian shows you all the tips and tricks! He is a genuine and great guy! I have had the pleasure of talking to him several times and he has some great dance moves!

Bonus!!! The Tulip Punch & Umbrella Builder punch coordinate with the DSP!

Wild Yellow Roses

My dear, dear friend (and now downline-who is a rock star) had her birthday a few days ago. I hate giving my club members and downline cards that I have done in classes. (Since they probably made them already) So I whipped this out in about 20 minutes! First I stamped the outline of the rose with Memento Black. I find it easier to use the darker and more crisp images to line up 2 and 3 step stamps. I used Daffodil Delight for the more solid color and Crushed Curry for the more detailed image. The best part of this bundle is that you can cut out the flower with your dies and die cutting machine! AND look at the gorgeous stitched shape for your sentiment!

A picture from our bedroom at our Crafting Getaway this weekend!!

The dies also included the trellis shaped border and shapes to cut out our leaves! So simple, yet a beautiful card!! Get ready, I have already created 8 card designs, made the advent calendar, the tag kit, and some ornaments!! The mojo is flowing!!

Happy Labor Day! Laura

True Blue

This card reminds me of the Cobalt Blue plates that my grandmother had showcased in her china cabinet!  It is a simple, yet elegant card!

The catch is this is a Host set only!  The set also has a lace doily, a detailed bee, and beautiful accents to add more visual effects on your project!

It features the new In Color 2018-2020 Blueberry Bushel and it’s coordinating DSP pack!  If you are just starting out, this is a great card layout for you!  All I used was one color ink, 2 cardstock colors, 1 stamp set, adhesive, and baker’s twine (optional). This is a go to layout for me when I am stumped for a quick card too!  I can change it up a bit with colors, textures, images, and embellishments-and no one notices!

Here is a video to show how simple it is to create! The end has the item numbers too!

Where are my Halloween lovers???  Look what is coming in your mailbox in September!  I CAN’T wait!  I promise that this one will be a sell out, so you will want to subscribe by September 10th to get yours reserved!  You can go month to month, buy a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription, and skip a month too!
