Paper stack cards



I saw this paper-centric card design on Operation Write Homes Facebook page and new that these gorgeous Basic Gray papers I have been hoarding would look lovely showcased this way.



And is my nature, I could not just make one while I was cutting into this paper pack.


I have lost track of what paper pack these designs were from. But it was all one paper stack.


I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite of these simple cards. It's wonderful when beautiful paper makes the card come together so easy.

Beautiful brads card


I saw this card design on a Facebook group a while ago. I shared my creations there but never here on my lil blog. This is a great way to showcase some beautiful brads. Draw a line on your card front paper, then emboss it in the folder of your choice. Place your brads, then attach your sentiment strip and layer on coordinating card stock and attach all of that to the card base. 


In this set of fancy brads I had plenty to do these two cards and more. Love how it really shows of the brads.

Many of my latest creations


My first cards made with MISTI. 


I had shared these on Facebook, but not on my blog yet. 



The MISTI makes repetitive stamping and doing this ombre kind of look, so easy!



A CASE'd Crazy About You card. 



My first attempt at the bokeh technique. 



Perpetual calendar stamps card.





A simple scraps card using the embedded embossing technique. 

There. A quick and dirty overview of most of the cards I have made and already given away and just never taken a moment to share them on my lil blog.

Irresistibly yours card set


A set of cards I made as a thank you gift for a class participant who brought a new guest. I used SU! Irresistibly yours papers and sponged on inks. Layered on black card stock and then coordinating card stock. The SU! Lovely Amazing You make sweet simple sentiments to add to the card fronts. 


Aren't these papers gorgeous?!?!


Here is a close up. Really quite simple but so striking.

Paper pumpkin leftovers card



Lots of variations of this seen around the internet. This is my take. Orange felt Thanks left over from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit. I added Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry ink and paper. It's a legal sized envelope and I lined it with stamped printer paper to cover up the ugly print on the inside of the envelope. 

Sorry I have been MIA from my blog, I am crafting and creating, cohosting monthly SU! Stamp-a-stack classes too, but I just am not motivated to sit down and type up descriptions to accompany my photos of projects.

March paper pumpkin alternatives


I took last months SU! Paper Pumpkin kit and plussed them to full A2 sized cards. I stitched one card just to test it out and quickly decided it was too much work for my taste.  



I thought the striking black and white geometric shapes lent themselves to coordinating with bold bright colors. So I used SU! Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.


I made three of the Thank You cards and three of the Happy Birthday to You design. I love these stamps that come with the kit. So versatile and usable on so many designs. These are quick and simple to put together but pack a lot of punch.

Painted Blooms and Lovely Amazing You card gift set



Making some quick and simple gift sets using the gorgeous SU! Painted Blooms DSP as the main focal point. I layered it onto coordinating card stocks and onto an embossed piece of white card stock.



I added a simple SU! Blackberry Bliss ribbon and tied a bow with the thick twine. I glued on 3 random sequins for a lil bling.


I stamped these sentiments multiple times using my MISTI, so that I could achieve the deep dark SU! Blackberry Bliss color. Then I punched them out and layered on the scallop circle, popping it up over the ribbon. These cards went together very quickly, but you would never know it, I think they turned out very cute.
