CASUAL
We started by layering Basic White onto Bermuda Bay cardstock. We stamped and die cut the cute gumball machine from the Gumball Greeting Bundle, then stamped out a stripe pattern in Granny Apple Green. Finally, we stamped out a few gumballs in Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo and then added an adorable sentiment.

AVID
First, we used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder to add texture to this card. Next, we colored Watercolor Paper with Bermuda Bay ink and then stamped and die cut the gumball machine. We used Silver Simply Elegant 12″ X 12″ (30.5 X 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper to add some decoration to the machine, and die cut a few gumballs. We finished by stamping Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green stripes onto Basic White cardstock.

ARTFULLY AVID
For this card we blended Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo ink together with blending brushes, then stamped out the stripe pattern using VersaMark ink. We filled the shaker dome with Frosted Beads Assortment and added some white Baker’s Twine to finish it all off. It turned out so sweet!

Keep Your Friends Close and Your Memories Closer

This week, try putting aside time to preserve your memories with some beautiful scrapbook pages. We had fun preserving memories and friendships with the Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack—and we are so excited to see what projects you create!
For our scrapbook pages, we kept everything simple and didn’t do any stamping—sometimes less is more, and we loved the way it turned out! We arranged the cards into their own pockets and added a few stickers. We then used the Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker to write a few words and popped up the bees with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the card, we colored the floral arrangement by squeezing drops of ink from ink refills into a stamp pad lid and using a Water Painter to color the image. We used Calypso Coral, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive, and So Saffron, and we loved the different hues of color we were able to create with the water. We finished the card with a simple embossed sentiment and a few embellishments, including some 2021–2023 In Color Jewels to coordinate with the colors in the floral image.

Simple Stamping with Happy Hedgehogs

As the saying goes, “Beauty lies in simplicity.” It’s a good rule for life and it holds true for cards, too! And remember, the simpler the card, the faster you’ll be done and able to give it to someone who could use a little pick-me-up or word of cheer!
Our simply stamped cards with the Happy Hedgehogs Stamp Set took just minutes to make. For two of the cards, we stamped the same image in different yet complementary colors, allowing you to create a visually complex look with minimal fuss. Also, notice how easy it was to add a little pop using a few well-placed embellishments (in this case, Pastel Pearls)! We kept the cute mushroom card easy by using just one of the blends in each combo (Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green, and Real Red).
Why not try your hand at making these cards? You will love the easy learning curve, and maybe you can try something slightly more challenging the next time around. After all, building creative confidence is one of the best things you can do for your crafty self. Then share your joy and confidence with others and at the same time, you may gain a stamping friend!

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Let’s get creative this week! If you have the creativity blues, don’t worry! This week, we are on the CASE to help you copy and share everything! So, get crafty with us as we CASE the You Are Amazing card in three gorgeous ways. Then try CASEing a project or two on your own and let us know what you came up with!
For our Just for You card, we layered the Mossy Meadow Designer Series Paper onto a cardstock base, then added the Shimmery White Cardstock off-center in the upper left corner. With a stamp or two, some ribbon, and a sentiment, this card is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
We CASEd the I Like You card by copying the heat embossing technique used on the You Are Amazing card. First, we colored the flower stamp from the Flowing Flowers Stamp Set with Stampin’ Write Markers, then colored the ink splatters with VersaMark ink. We applied gold embossing powder, making sure to keep the gold off the flower and stem, then we heat embossed it. Isn’t it so cute?
For our Sending a Thousand Well-Wishes card we CASEd the color combination from our You Are Amazing card—Calypso Coral, Misty Moonlight, Sahara Sand, and a touch of gold. For this card we used slightly watered-down Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the flowers to add the Gilded Leafing. We just love the way it turned out.
