Pam Brown shares a sweet layout and two great cards!


Hello! Pam here today to share with you a layout I created using minimal patterned paper, replacing that with stamps! I am a big patterned paper lover, but I wanted to create a page using stamps in spots I would normally add blocks of patterned paper. I thought the licensed Echo Park clear stamps (various packages) would coordinate perfectly with this photo of my son:

Bundle of Joy layout by Pam Brown



I stamped my title (Bundle of Joy), and used arrows to draw your eye across the page. To dress the stamped stars on the bottom up, I added a punched star on top of one of them. I knew I wanted sort of a grid design, so I stamped everything first, then went back and added bits and pieces that would fit around the stamped images/words.

Good morning! Pam here today to share with you a card I created for a sweet new baby girl. My friend recently gave birth to a little girl, whose name begins with a “K,” so I personalized this card by adding a K to the center of the stamped circle:

K card by Pam Brown

To make this card appropriate for a baby girl, I stamped floral images from 2 different licensed Echo Park stamp sets in hues of pink and yellow to create my background. I stamped the banner piece and added a “K” sticker in the center, and I mimicked the stamped banner piece by punching one from patterned paper and embellishing that. I backed it all on a plaid pink background and added some stitching for a little extra handmade feel.

Hello! Pam here this morning to share a sweet and simple card created solely from the licensed Bella Blvd Sand and Surf stamp set.

Thinking of You card by Pam Brown

For this card, I stamped in different colors, the 4 flowers that are included in the set. I then randomly stamped leaves. I finished by stamping a sentiment. I trimmed my piece of white cardstock to the size I wanted after stamping, so that I could make sure the images were centered where I wanted them!

3 fantastic projects by Gini Williams Cagle!


Hi, it’s Gini – if you have any summer parties to plan, then this cute card could be just what you are looking for.  
 It's Your Birthday Today! card by Gini Williams Cagle


After I stamped the lion, and colored him – I fussy cut around him, and used foam adhesives to raise him up.  The patterned paper that I used, had a printed sentiment, that wasn’t fitting for this project, so I used some of the KI Memories Washi Tape, to cover over it.  Perfect solution!

Supplies
Hampton Art/ Outlines Stamps
 KI Memories Washi Tape 
Clearsnap Ink: Doodlebug Designs (Bubblegum); ColorBox Chalk (Blackbird)
Cheery Lynn Designs Dies:
Kaisercraft: Patterned Papers
Doodlebug Twine
Copic Markers

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s Gini, and I’m stepping out of my comfort zone to share a manly card with you.  I don’t have a hard time with flowers and frills, but ask me to make a card for a male, and I get a little nervous.  I still added details, but I think they created a card perfect for the woodsy type.
It's Your Birthday card by Gini Williams Cagle


Directions:
1. Make card from cardstock;  adhere patterned paper.
2. Ink embossing plate with dark brown ink and run through machine with kraft  paper  rectangle. Adhere to patterned paper and machine stitch.
3. Die cut chicken wire and adhere to card. Layer a frayed piece of burlap ribbon over the bottom portion of the die cut.
4. Die cut two French Flair squares. Stamp sentiment on the smaller one. Adhere with foam adhesive.
5. Decorate the sentiment with die cut ferns and Dew Drops as shown.
6. For the inside of the card, add a square of patterned paper with edges inked.  
7. Adhere a stamped, trimmed sentiment and die cut ric-rac trim.

Hi, it’s Gini -  For me, making layouts are all about layers, layers, layers!  I like to add lots of textures for visual interest.  
Building Memories layout by Gini Williams Cagle
 

When I use stamps to make an embellishment for a page, it’s not any different.  For this project, I made the pumpkins by combining three stamps.  First I stamped the Botanicabella Background onto white cardstock.  Then I stamped the pumpkins from the Happy Hauntings set over the background and cut them out.  Next I cut the leaf border from the set, and cut the individual leaves apart and added them to the pumpkins.  So, it’s a fun and easy way to make your own embellishments.  And although this was a Halloween set, it was perfect to remake it for this layout.

Good morning! Pam here today to share a card I created using the Licensed Jillibean Soup Large Chilled Cucumber clear stamps. I loved the butterflies in this collection, so I wanted to focus on those:

Butterfly Kisses, Butterfly Wishes card by Pam Brown

I stamped the large butterfly in the center, a medium one on the bottom, and a small one on top. Then I filled the spaces with a butterfly die-cut and stamped the sentiment. I used ink colors that matched the die-cut, so there are pretty pops of color running down my card.

Fun cards by Patty Folchert and Kim Frantz today!


Summer Greetings all, just popping in to share a card for a favorite friend.  This card is a happy mixture of KI Memories Vintage Charm paper collection and Hampton Art/Authentique Grateful Heart Clear Stamps. 

Butterfly card by Patty Folchert
To create the background I utilized the fabulous KI Memories Vintage Charm/musical Hearts diecut sheet and popped it up with foam dots. Then I built in some layers with the ruler paper and the ruffle sticker. Finally the stamped images were stamped onto the notebook paper in Ocean Blue and then fussy cut and arranged around the butterfly ruffle sticker. The sentiment was stamped on blue pattern paper in coffee brown ink and fussy cut as well. Leaves were handcut with edges inked and added around the flowers. Then you just add a little bling to the flower centers and it is complete. So take the time to create a handmade card for a special friend, let them know how grateful you are to have them in your life!
Dreaming of Vintage Goodness,
Patty

Three popular trends came together for this quick all occasion card. The trendy navy, mint and coral color palette, arrows and the ever popular anchor theme; the result is a playful yet versatile card.
Anchor card by Patty Folchert
A quick cut on my Cricut using the Stand & Salute cartridge created the anchor cutout frame in Navy Salt paper. The background insert was stamped in mint pigment ink onto navy cardstock with the frame added on top with foam dots.  The card base is a coral dot pattern and the sentiment was mint stamped onto white cardstock and fussy cut out. A double bow of navy and white bakers twine was added and one small pearl bling for a finishing touch.
That was it, a quick card for almost any occasion- it guarantees a smile. I promise.

Cards Galore today by Britt Brass and Kim Frantz!


Hello! Britt Bass here today sharing with you a card using The Jillibean Soup “Fresh Vegetable Soup” papers and liscensed Large Clear stamp set along with Clearsnap pigment ink.
How's It Rollin'? card by Britt Bass
I just adore this icon and sentiment from the “Vegetable Soup” clear stamp set.  If you are a fan of kitschy, punny sentiments for cards and layouts then this is the perfect set for you.  I simply stamped the cart and sentiment on a white piece of paper, trimmed it, chomped the corners and matted it.  I made some rolled roses out of felt and grouped them at the top over my ribbon.  A piece of paper from the Jillibean collection pack gives the background a little movement...and done!

Hello! Britt Bass here today sharing with you a set of journaling cards made using the Art Warehouse “Flower Power Background“ stamp and one of the Jillibean Soup liscensed clear stamp sets for the “Irish Farm House Soup” collection, stamped in Clearsnap pigment ink.
Floral Project Life Daily cards by Britt Bass
If you love the idea of recording your everyday memories, but you are more of a stamps-and-ink crafter, you will love this idea!  Use your Hampton Art background stamps and some white cardstock to create your own, one-of-a-kind title and journaling cards.


I created a little label-shaped mask and used repositionable adhesive to adhere it to each card before I stamped my background.  Then, after stamping each card in coordinating colors using Clearsnap Colorbox Petal Point Pigment inks, I stamped each weekday with my small letter stamps.

Fun, bright cards by Leanne Allinson and a playful layout by Nicole Nowosad!

Good morning Hampton Art fans! I am happy to share a page I created very quickly using some fun Hampton Art products.

You Are Loved layout by Nicole Nowosad

I started off with a white cardstock base, and stamped the doily shape from the Oh Snap set along the bottom part of the page:

I then added some patterned paper, layered with the KI Memories die cut lace cardstock and then added my photo and title. 
Next, I stamped a bunch of flowers on top paper and cardstock using the Bella Blvd stamps and using 3D foam dots to layer and adhere across the page: 

I stamped a few tags and tucked them under a fabric brad in the center of one of the flowers too:

And then the page is complete!

The Decorunner has new designs! Check them out in the graphic below. Super cute!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


 You & Me layout by Shannon Tidwell

I made the photo the center of attention by surrounding it by layers of texture and color. The large flag shape helps keep the photo at the forefront. I love the subtle texture the Die-Cut paper adds to the bottom half of the paper.  I know that's a paper that I'll use frequently!


You & Me Supplies:

Hexagon Die-Cut Paper KI10052
Sprinkles Bejeweled Paper KI10054
Best Friends Ruffle Stickers KI10031
Simply Lovely Double-Sided Cardstock KI10057

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You Are So Beautiful layout by Shannon Tidwell

I love all the patterns and designs on just one sheet of paper. The soft colors mixed well with the gold accents I added. For easy embellishments I punched circles in the background and then backed them with patterned paper on pop dots. It adds a fun element of dimension. I also hole punched a few times around the edge and dripped some gold paint around. The butterfly was cut from the Simply Lovely KI paper.
