Fall is Coming Super Sale!

Hi friends!  Fall is just around the corner, so I'm here with a card that practically put itself together, and another great Stamp Simply promo!  

Shop now to July 31st for Fall stamps, dies, and papers.

This paper pack from Doodlebug has a few printed tags and one was the perfect size for this sentiment from our Give Thanks set.   The tag would make the perfect bookmark, so I gave it a ribbon treatment that would work well for that purpose.  

Just a stamp or two, a few quick slices of designer paper, a swipe of glue and a few colors and this card's all done!  

The inside has a pop of Fall colors that harmonize with the colors in the designer paper.

Ephemera Queen, May Arts, and Stamp Simply


Today's Stamp Simply project showcases May Arts ribbon, and we're having a sale!  

Now through July 25th, May Arts spools are 25% off at Stamp Simply!

I love layering beautiful ribbon colors, textures, and colors...May Arts makes it easy!

The ink blot designer paper has hints of copper and so I used Delicata copper ink to stamp the sentiments inside and out. They're from one of our new floral stamp sets.  

I also splattered diluted Delicata copper ink onto the inside and onto the card front because it helps to make the separate elements feel more cohesive.

Christmas in July: Glad Tidings


Hello everyone!

How often does December come and you have yet to start/much less finish your Christmas cards?  Our Stamp Simply team is providing some Christmas in July inspiration, and there's even extra motivation in the form of a sale!  

Take advantage of the sale to get all that you need to get started and finish early!

My simple, very traditional Christmas card uses two of our Christmas stamp sets and one die along with some sweet Christmas designer paper by Echo Park.

Inside, there's a silhouette manger scene along with one of my favorite Christmas verses...I can never read it without silently singing it Messiah chorus-style!

Inspired by Tour de France

It's Tour de France (and also Tour de Fleece!) and today's Stamp Simply project is inspired by the race!  This Kaisercraft designer paper is perfect for the biking theme with bikes, chains, gears, etc.  

Kaisercraft papers are on sale this week!  

This paper pad has lots of printed punch outs so I used one of those and added our "The Sky's the Limit" sentiment for a very quick and easy finish!

Inside I used a sheet of the same lined paper, edge-punched with a notebook punch, for more inspirational words about reaching your goals.  

With very little stamping and no die-cutting, this card was finished in record-breaking time but did not skimp on style!

Hi friends!  Today's Stamp Simply project features some beautiful new Graphic 45 designer paper and a stamp set from our Faith-Hope-Love series.  So often their paper is just too beautiful to cover up and I find myself turning toward a super simple layout with few embellishments, which is, of course, great for a masculine card!  

It just so happened that this compass ended up almost perfectly centered on the front of the card, so I decided to put a rhinestone there to draw the eye.  

I chose to stamp a single word, HOPE, onto a strip of boardwalk paper and to embellish it with a tiny anchor punched from one of the designer prints.  There's a little loop of silver cording knotted around the anchor in keeping with the sailing/anchored theme.

The inside portrays an image of a safe harbor with a verse about hope from Lamentations.
