So keeping this relatively simple...here's our card for today..

Fresia

This is one of those designs that can be adapted to just about any designer series paper, adjusting the cardstock  color and Blends to coordinate with the paper will result in  a card that you can create to use up some of your smaller pieces of designer paper.

Also, just about any verse can be substituted for the one used in the sample--thus this becomes one of those stock card designs that can be created and stashed until you need one, pop on the appropriate greeting and off you go to the mailbox.

I used the fresia design from the new Heart & Home Designer Series paper in the new Jan-Jun mini catalog..if you didn't get your copy (and don't already have  demonstrator) contact me and we'll get one on your hands.

Another Quick & Easy card using Sale-a-bration set Island Vibes

Today we're creating Another Quick  Easy card using Sale-a-bration set Island Vibes.  If you missed our super card on Tuesday you can check it out here: https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/01/create-quick-cards-with-sale-a-bration-island-vibes.html.

Here's today's card

Leaves

Again, I nabbed one of the notecards and envelopes in Basic White for my base--that eliminates creating the base from scratch and the notecards come with matching envelopes (they come in white an vanilla--it's always a good idea to keep a pack of both on hand in your stamping staples.

This time I ran the notecard front through the Tasteful Textures embossing folder--just adding this bit of pizzazz to the card front enhances the eye appeal dramatically.

The tropical leaves are all one single stamp! That's right--a single stamp and a Shaded Spruce ink pad gives you all that luscious greenery. Then use one of the perfect greetings in a pop of color like Poppy Parade and your basic card is done. Of course adding 3 Champagne Rhinestones strategically placed in a rough triangle and the card ratchets up to pretty wonderful instead of just adequate.

I'll give you the step by step directions for today's card followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today.

*Jan-Feb is Sale-a-bration--for each $50 in product that you purchase you can select a free product from the Sale-a-bration brochure!

Create Quick cards with Sale-a-bration Island Vibes

 

 

Today we're going to learn how to Create Quick cards with Sale-a-bration Island Vibes stamp set! This is one of the free stamp sets you can earn when you purchase product for $50 during Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration event....here's a look at the set..

158096 island vibes

We'll also be using a sentiment from the Special Moment stamp set which is another Sale-a-bration Freebie!

Here's the quick card for today

Plantand a bit closer ....

Plant cu

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I often find myself in need of a card but little time--so one of my solutions is to grab one of the notecards and envelopes (they come in Basic White and Very Vanilla). They come precut, scored and ready to go--this eliminates the need for preparing your base.

Today's card is simply adding 2 quick layers to the base white notecard and adding a single stamp, greeting and embellishments...in less that 5 minutes your card is ready to go.

The plant stamp that I used looks better in 2 colors--so I nabbed my Stampin'Write markers and applied the ink directly to the rubber stamp--that way we can get 2 great colors with just one stamp.

You'll find that the Spccial Moments stamp set has all those verses that you use consistently--this time I needed a thank you card and this greeting was fresh and perfect for my purpose.

I then just added 3 of our new Adhesive backed hexagons to coordinate with the green plant and they simply added the bit of extra that pushes a card into extra special instead of just pretty.

I'll give you the step by step directions for today's card followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today. 

Remember:

*Jan-Feb is Sale-a-bration--for each $50 in product that you purchase you can select a free product from the Sale-a-bration brochure!

*if you use this month's host code (VXJM3R2D) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Cut Shaded Spruce 3 X 4 1/2; adhere to notecard front with liquid glue.

2. Cut Basic White 2 7/8 X 4 3/8

    *Stamp Thanks for Brightening up my day! (Special Moments # 158081 Sale-a-bration) in black in (e.g. Memento)

    *On the plant stamp (Island Vibes # 198096 Sale-a-bration) using the side of the brush end of the Stampin'Write markers color the stamp itself with Just Jade and Cinnamon Cider--stamp above greeting.

    *Adhere this layer to Spruce layer with liquid glue.

3. Adhere 1 large, 1 medium, and 1 small Adhesive backed Hexagons (#158148) around plant--see photo for placement.

The smaller stamp includes the 3 florals plus some accent dots---so just marrying the larger flower with the smaller one give you all the design you need.

We used the Adhesive backed Hexagons for our embellishments in this card--what a fun addition to add touches of interest around the stamped images.

Here's the first quick card:

Thank you

Here's a little closer look at those new Polished Dots  embellishments...

Thank you cu

We're using the Stampin'Write markers to color directly on the rubber stamp--this allows us to use 2 colors on the single stamp--it's quick and easy to do this.

Check out the gold frame that focuses the eye on the Thank You--I'll show you below how to create that with 2 dies and one roll through the die cut machine...it's really easy and you can do multiples quite easily with this technique.

I'll give you the step by step directions followed by the supply list so you can order your supplies today.

Hippo diesNote: you can salvage the middle waste for future use--if you want to avoid scratching the surface of this piece use a layer of tissue paper between the die and the gold foil when running through the die cut machine.
