Lunch Bag Note Cards

Today’s project, Lunch Bag Note Cards, is a quick and easy project.  Perfect if you are new to paper stamping or are in the need for a speedy project.  Plus, the note cards are stinkin’ cute!  The note cards are the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes so a perfect size to add to a lunch or book bag.  On different occasions, I plan to add a note to my husband’s golf bag along with his lunch.  Maybe it will improve his golf game for the day!  I am also gifting some of the cards for use in my grandson’s school bag.  

Hey Love Narrow Note Cards

With Jet Black Stazon Ink and the Hey Love Cling Stamp Set stamp the images on the narrow note cards.  Use the Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen to color each image.  Super easy!  The Narrow Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes come in a set of 20 so you can make multiple sets.

The narrow note cards are perfect to use for thinking of you sentiments or offering words of encouragement.  It will make the day for the recipient!

Summer Paradise

With Sale-a-Bration ending soon, I would like to share one of my favorite Sale-a-Bration products from the catalog.  The By the Bay stamp set is a beautiful stamp set for creating the most lovely Summer paradise cards.  Just look at the images, close your eyes and imagine the beach, the water, and the waves.  It’s a great image in our mind right?  So why not make it an image you can look at often?

Not only are the images beautiful but they are lots of fun to color.  For the card below, I used Shimmery White Cardstock for stamping the image onto and my Aqua Painter to color the image.  I find it relaxing to sit and color.  Even better is that I have never been brave enough to paint the front door of my house red, so I was able to fulfill my urge when coloring the door on the stamped image!  The colors used for this project are listed under the Project Materials.  

One of the cards below that you can see in the catalog also highlights what could be a beautiful sunset.  I love the birds on the other card and soft coloring.  Nothing but serenity when you look at these images.

Coordinating Tea

Creating projects that have a special place in your heart is always fun.  I love the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time Framelits with it.  Tea time with family and friends is always a special time.  Why not put those memories into your cards.  It’s even better when you can earn the Framelits from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The stamp set is available in the Occasions Catalog.  I love that there are coordinating products you can earn for free.  You can see Chad below show you the Tea Time Framelits Dies and a few samples made with them.

The Tea Time Framelits Dies includes the nine framelits shown below.

Another Celebrating Birthdays!

The card today is another Celebrating Birthdays sample from the monthly class.  It is a quick and simple card.  Yet the use of the Country Floral Dynamic Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF) creates a look of elegance.  The Petal Pink and Whisper White color scheme provides a soft look.  Another reminder, the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF is currently available for FREE during Sale-a-bration.  (psst – here’s a secret: the embossing folder is carrying over in the new catalog out on June 3rd but why wait and pay for it when you can get it free with a $50 order through March 31)

Below are the materials and directions for recreating the card:

Materials:

  • Petal Pink Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base); 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square (for circle)
  • Whisper White Cardstock: cut two: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (one for card front, one for interior); 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ square (for sentiment)
  • Vellum Cardstock: 2″ x 3″
  • Special Celebrations Stamp Set
  • Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)
  • Layering Circles Framelits
  • Leaf Punch
  • Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon
  • Snail Adhesive
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Mini-Glue Dots
  • Big Shot
  • Clear Block Size D

Directions:

  1. Use the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF to texture emboss one 5-1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock.  Attach to front of Petal Pink card base with adhesive.
  2. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Special Celebrations stamp set on the small Whisper White cardstock square.  Cut circle using a Layering Circles Framelits Die.
  3. Cut the Petal Pink cardstock square using the next size of Layering Circles Framelits.  
  4. Punch 2 sets of leaves from the Vellum cardstock using the Leaf Punch.  Sandwich the leaves between the sentiment layer and the Petal Pink cardstock circle layer.  Attach to the center of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Embellish by adding Petal Pink adhesive-backed sequins and a Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon bow to complete the card front.

More Celebrating Birthdays

We are still celebrating birthdays and I am sharing another card from the class themed Celebrating Birthdays.  The card is a triple layer card featuring the Painted Seasons stamp set.  The stamp set is in a bundle with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper and is a Sale-a-bration selection.  Remember, it is available for FREE with a qualifying order of $100 until March 31 (or while supplies last).  In addition, the coordinating Four Seasons Framelits eliminate the fussy cutting for the added floral embellishment.  For triple layer stamping, I like to use a monochromatic color scheme and chose Highland Heather to provide a Springtime look.  This stamping method also looks great with a combination of colors so just select your favorite colors.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set. 

A tutorial is available for this card.  Here is the link for the Triple Layer Card featuring Painted Seasons Stamp Set

To go with the theme, Celebrating Birthdays, a class participant surprised the group with treat of cupcakes and not just plain cupcakes!  Joni made delicious lemon strawberry cupcakes and cake.  Just look at her creations!

She cut silver cardstock with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies and cut individual butterflies to use on picks for the cupcakes.   Joni used a blend of inks and glitter glue on the wings and bodies of  to add pizzazz to the butterflies.  Green moss on the picks add a touch of realism.  The cupcakes and cake were almost too beautiful to eat! 

As you can tell, the card classes are lots of fun!
