Wedding Congratulations – by Sheri Holt

Quick note: Find all Stamp Simply Clear Stamps here.

Find all 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pads by Kaisercraft here.

Sheri created a lovely wedding card for us today using one of my all time favorite paper pads by Kaisercraft that offers such pretty colors and prints. It’s one of those quick and easy cards that provides a whole lot of punch without a lot of work. The brightly colored seam binding really pops against the paper. Sheri used our NEW set called Wedding Wishes, but I can see this card design working beautifully as a birthday card, too, where Birthday Blessings would work just perfectly! Take a look:

May God Bless You Richly – by Tricia Traxler

Quick Note: Blog Candy post is still open here.

 We are continuing to showcase our 1st release of Stamp Simply Clear Stamps and today Tricia has an absolutely striking clean and simple birthday card to share with us. She combined two stamp sets that work beautifully together – Birthday Blessings from our 1st release and a multi-step stamp set from JustRite, Romantic Wild Roses. The inside of Tricia’s card compliments the card front just perfectly and is so very pretty. Take a look:

SSRSBirthdayOutside 440587

SIMPLY GORGEOUS!

Love that pop of black and the unexpected horizontal line (space) through the roses that gives the appearance of a thin ribbon.

You can find Tricia’s post on her blog here.

SSRSBirthdayInside 440587

And this is the card inside – every bit as pretty as the card front.

Yes, I am totally smitten with this project!!!

Wedding Wishes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There’s a whole lot of shiny going on here, thus the glare. The upper designer paper is metallic, mirror silver paper is framing the sentiment, which is silver embossed, and metallic string was used as our ribbon today.

This is a gift card holder made from 12″ paper. The end result is A2 sized – 5.5 x 4.25″.

Cut paper 4.25 x 12″. Score at 2 and 7.5. Fold and secure the 2″ flap with tape to form the pocket. Decorate away!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s the inside. The pocket is folded and taped up and a simple Congratulations was adhered up higher.  A gift card will be inserted into the pocket so I wanted to make sure any message was up high enough so as not to be covered by the gift card.

NEW! – Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

WELCOME!

It is with great excitement that I prepare this blog post.

We are all super excited to share with you our BRAND NEW line of clear stamps, designed right here – Stamp Simply Clear Stamps. These stamps were designed with a few specifics in mind. First, they had to be both pretty in appearance and they had to be very usable stamps for those projects we all seem to need time and time again. And secondly, it was important that they contain not only beautiful sentiments for the outside of the card but that they also contain heartfelt and sincere messages for the inside of the card. And we are all super happy with the end result. I’ve just made my first card with each set in this release and I’d like to show them to you, along with the sets themselves. So let’s get going!

There are 4 sets in this release and they can be purchased individually or as a Full Release Offer for an even greater value.

You can see ALL the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps here.

SS-Sent003 Birthday Blessings WEB 300514

Birthday Blessings

This set contains birthday greetings in a variety of options and sizes.

It also contains several inside sentiments that can be interchanged.

The largest Birthday and Blessings are separate stamps, allowing you to vary the format to fit the space desired.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have 2 cards using the Birthday Blessings sentiment.  On this card the two words are offset to fit the open space on the paper piece selected.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This card is very similar, just set up a bit differently using the Birthday Blessings together horizontally.

Both of these cards are 5 x 7 and fit into the A7 Clear Boxes for both protection and gifting.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the inside of the first card – the inside of the second card is the same, just a different color sheet of paper used on the bottom.

I combined two sentiments to create my inside message.

Both cards used the same supplies and all sentiments are gold embossed.

Stamp: Birthday Blessings by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Paper: Oh So Lovely by Kaisercraft

Ink:  VersaMark, Gold Embossing Powder

Ribbon: Seam Binding – White

Venise Lace – Lucia White

Flowers: Petaloo Botanica Blooms

__________

SS-Sent002 Many Thanks WEB 300514

Many Thanks

This set offers a variety of thank you sentiments along with three inside sentiments that can be stacked together or used alone.

As with all of the sets in this release, what we are referring to as inside sentiments can, of course, be used on the card fronts as well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a very quick and easy thank you note with a rather sophisticated look.

Using the thin silk ribbon allows you to knot the ribbon under the sentiment panel without too much bulk to give that pretty shirred ribbon look.

I think this card design would make a lovely wedding card using Wedding Wishes (shown below).

This card is a standard A2 – 5.5 x 4.25.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For the inside of this thank you note I stacked all three sentiments on one clear block. You can create a variety of messages using these stamps.

Stamps: Many Thanks by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Paper: Cottage Living by Pebbles

Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black

Ribbon: May Arts 1.25″ Silk – Tiffany Blue

Dies: Spellbinders Square Nesties

SS-Sent001 Wedding Wishes Stamps WEB 300514

Wedding Wishes

1 Corinthians 13 is my favorite verse for wedding cards, hands down. I couldn’t create a wedding set without it.

You’ll see a few more wedding cards from me this week as I need 3 for this Saturday – oh my!!! Busy weekend.

This set offers a variety of sentiments, extending this set beyond weddings.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love to make wedding cards and blush cardstock is about my favorite color for them.

This card is 6.5 x 4.75 and fits into an A6 Clear Box.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I used 1 Corinthians 13 on the card inside. This stamp makes me SO happy!!!

Both inside and outside sentiments are silver embossed – so pretty!!!

Ink:  VersaMark, Silver Embossing Powder

Ribbon: May Arts 1.25″ Silk – Champagne

Flowers: Petaloo Botanica Minis

__________

 SS-Sent004 Deepest Sympathy WEB 300514

Deepest Sympathy

This set offers a variety of sympathy sentiments in various sizes that can be combined and interchanged to create so many different sentiment combinations.

I find great comfort in Psalm 23 and surely had to include it in this sympathy set.  I used it on the card front for the card below and created an inside sentiment from several other smaller stamps combined.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Using the gorgeous sheets in the Kaisercraft pads makes it easy to create cards like this.

This card is 6.5 x 4.75 and fits into an A6 Clear Box.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s the inside. I combined the prayer sentiment with heartfelt and sympathy. Love how this inside turned out.  There are so many options with this set.

Paper: Lady Rose by Kaisercraft

Fern Card and Home Decor – by Sheri Holt

Quick Note: Find autumn themed items here.

Find JustRite products in stock here (while still available):

 Background, clear, cling, small cling, dies2015 Christmas Release, 2014 Christmas Releases, ALL JR Christmas.

Today we get two projects for the price of one, so to speak! Sheri used her Fern small cling set by JustRite and created two totally different projects with just that one beautiful fern stamp. The first is a card where she used the fern to create a frame type border around her birthday sentiment. Sheri’s second project is a framed home decor item – a perfect little gift for this time of year that is SO quick and easy to make. Let’s take a look at Sheri’s projects for today:

Fern Birthday 440552

What a lovely birthday card – appropriate for either gender!

You can find Sheri’s post containing both her projects on her blog here.

For this card Shari used:

Stamps: Fern by JustRite

Extra Grand Sentiments by JustRite

Paper: CardstockWhite and Colored

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black

Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Peeled Paint, Forest Moss

Fern Framed 440604

To create this gorgeous framed project Sheri stamped onto watercolor paper and used an inexpensive 5 x 7 frame from Wal-Mart. The thickness of the frame allowed her to insert her piece easily for a rich look.

Check out Sheri’s blog post here for the how-to on this project!

For this project Sheri used:

Stamps: Fern by JustRite

Paper: Ranger Watercolor Paper

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black

Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Peeled Paint, Forest Moss

Miscellaneous: Sponge, Mini Mister

Make Today Epic – by Heidi Blankenship

 What a wonderful thought – MAKE TODAY EPIC!!!  It’s up to us, for sure!!!! Heidi’s card today is an absolute delight. It is fairly white, clean and simple, fairly flat for mailing and features a wonderful watercolored wreath image from a clear set by JustRite. Like yesterday’s watercolored card from Tricia, Heidi used her Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Heidi pulled color from her ink pads while Tricia used her markers. Be sure to check out Heidi’s tutorial today. Take a look at this delight:
