Quick & Easy Cards with Pretty Paper

Making a card does not have to be complicated or take a long time. Pretty papers are my favorite! They are the first thing I look at when a new Stampin’ Up! catalog comes out and there are always a couple packs of new pretty papers on my first order. They are an inexpensive way to make a whole bunch of cards in a short amount of time. Today’s Quick & Easy…

Peach Cards with Fruit Stand Paper from Stampin' Up!

Big or Little? What size do you prefer your cards?

By | Cards, One Sheet Wonder Cards, Thinking of You Cards | 2 Comments

I’ve mentioned recently that I’m a fan of note cards. Those little pint size cards have just the right amount of room to create on and write in. But sometimes you want a regular size card. Today I want to show you how you can take a similar layout and shrink it down or blow it up to make the size of card that you prefer. These thinking of you cards were both made with the Fruit Stand paper from Stampin’ Up! The card on the left is “regular” size and the card on the right is a note card. Sweet,…

One of my goals for the year is to send more cards “just because”. I think we could all use a little encouragement now and then! Nothing quite brightens your day like a handmade greeting card in your mailbox. Wouldn’t you just love to receive this Birthday Blooms card? Paper Sizes: Whisper White: 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ Watermelon Wonder: 3-3/8″ x 4-5/8″ Pool Party card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ I started this card by stamping a full sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ Whisper White card stock with the large flower from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I’m in love with my Stamp-a-ma-jig, so…

Gold Soiree One Sheet Wonder Cards

Have I mentioned lately how much I like to make One Sheet Wonder Cards? The One Sheet Wonder method makes card making FAST and FUN! Plus you won’t waste any of your pretty paper. I definitely don’t need any more extra paper scraps in my bin and you know we crafters have a hard time throwing anything away! The Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! is some of my favorite. I love the colors and this flower pattern reminds me of my grandma. She always had a pretty floral tablecloth on her kitchen picnic table. Want to learn…
