Are you looking for something just a little different for an unique card shape? All you have to do is trim 3/4″ off of the front flap of your card and you have a little interest and change to a standard card. I used the Thick Whisper White Card Stock to form the card base to give it just a bit more weight. Cut a piece of the English Garden patterned paper to 1 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ to decorate the exposed portion of the card back. I love this card.

Stamping Tip: Stamp off the Hardwood image inked with Tip Top Taupe ink to get lighter image on your card front. This way the image on the card front does not over power the butterflies on the front. I use the “stamping off” technique often.

Use the Banner Triple Punch to get the perfectly notched ends on your banners. You can use the punch for 1″, 1 1/2″, or 2″ wide banners.

Use the Happy Patterns Decorative Masks to create this special embossed background. After embossing the pattern from the mask with clear embossing powder, I used an Aqua Painter to brush color over the clear image. (In my video I use ink and a sponge to add the background color) Wipe off any over the embossed areas so the background will pop. Be sure to scroll down to see the video tutorial for this card.

Watercolor Wings With Embossing Resist

Stamping Tip: Use the Tags & Labels Framelits to cut out the sentiment piece and then the next larger frame to cut out the mat. I love that these Framelits come in sizes that will create a narrower mat than our other shapes. Perfect for layering.

I have been having a lot of fun with the new Lots Of Labels Framelits. I really like this layout and thought it was perfect to layer the sentiment from Friendly Wishes over a piece cut with the Lots Of Labels framelits. I know that I will be using this layout again.

You're The Best With Lots Of Labels Handmade Card

Stamping Tip: Add a little bit of texture to your card stock mats with one of the embossing folders. I used the Decorative Dots Textured Embossin’ Folder to add texture to this Mint Macaron card stock layer.

Friendly Wishes With Lots Of Labels Handmade Card

I have found the Friendly Wishes set to be very versatile and easy to use. The bigger words are so great to use as focal images and a great way to get your message across. I have the clear mount set, but you can also order it in Wood mount.

I recently asked my Facebook readers what stamping projects they would like to see for the Fourth of July and the answer was cards! I settled on creating a Patriotic card with a red, white, and blue ice cream cone with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. Be sure to scroll down to see the video tutorial for this card.

Patriotic handmade Card Sprinkles of Life My Stamp Lady

Stamping Tip: Use the Triple Banner Punch to get nicely notched ends of your banner card stock. You can use a 1″, 1 1/2″, or 2″ piece of card stock in the banner to get the perfect flags.

Check out how I colored this flower from the You’ve Got This stamp set! I was able to get the variation in color on this flower by stamping and coloring on vellum. You will stamp the flower image in Black Stazon on the front of the vellum and then fill in the color with markers on the back. The petals are colored with Blushing Bride and then I went over areas with the Watermelon Wonder marker. To get the soft finished look you can use a Blender Pen to blend the color.

You've Got This Square Card

Stamping Tip: Use the Fast Fuse adhesive to mount the vellum to the card base. When you use this adhesive on white card stock it will not show through. Check other colors to make sure the adhesive does not show through.

You've Got This Stamp Stampin' Up!

It was easy to make a square envelope with the Envelope Punch Board and the awesome Neutrals Envelope paper. I love that I can make a square envelope whenever I need one. I used the Watercolor Wings to stamp the outside of the envelope.
