Enjoy The Moment

Have you ever purchased a stamp set and then wondered what type card design you were going to make once you received it?  Well, that is the case with today’s stamp set, Enjoy The Moment.  So what did I do? I selected a couple of the stamps and decided to play.  No plan in mind but just to stamp.  Several colors were selected and then I just started stamping on various papers.  Guess what happened? A few ideas came to mind. So I’m sharing two simple cards using the Enjoy The Moment stamp set. 

Enjoy The Moment

Details:
  • For the “a little note” card on the left, a card base is created using Early Espresso cardstock.  Follow with a layer of Crumb Cake cardstock.  To the Crumb Cake layer, add a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  Stamp the image onto a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock (1-3/4″ x 5″) using Soft Suede Classic Ink Pad.  Stamp the sentiment below the image.  To add a touch of sparkle, color the pods using clear Wink of Stella (unfortunately, it doesn’t show in photo) Attach the strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Complete the card by adding a double Linen Thread bow.
  • Now, for a super simple card!  Create a card base using Soft Suede cardstock.  Create background by randomly stamping the dual seed pods onto the cardstock using Soft Suede Classic Ink.  Next, use the “seed” stamp to add seeds on the card base.  Stamp the sentiment and the dual seed pods onto a 3″ x 3″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Cut using the 2nd largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies. Tie a piece of the Vanilla Open-Weave Ribbon (from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack) around the card front and tie into a bow.  Add the sentiment label next to the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Both of these cards are simple to make which are perfect for highlighting the Enjoy The Moment Stamp Set.  Other ideas came to mind when making these cards so look for more projects soon highlighting this stamp set.

Dandy Garden

Today’s project is one that has been on my craft desk since mid-November and I finally completed it!  It features products from the Dandy Garden Suite. Specifically, the Dragonfly Garden Bundle and the beautiful Dandy Garden 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper.  During the Onstage at Home meeting hosted by Stampin’ Up! in November, attendees received a list project materials to prepare for stamping along with presenters.  This project is one that was from the Dandy Garden presentation. Using the same card base and layering cardstock colors, attendees were to select three different patterns from the designer series paper.  The beauty of the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper is the coordinating patterns and colors.  Therefore, there are multiple options for creating a variety of cards that have the same card base and layout but differ due to the patterns from the designer series paper.  

Dandy Garden

The Dandy Garden Suite of products is in the recently released Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog and now available for purchase.  Do you notice the small dragonflies?  The Dragonflies punch allows you to punch small dragonflies in addition to a larger dragonfly shape!  I love the ability to punch small images to add to cards.  

I will be using this layout on future cards adding variations so be sure to follow me here each week. Plus, on my business Facebook page, on Instagram and on my You Tube channel.  Just click on each of the links and be sure to follow me on all the sources to receive project ideas!
