Thoughtful Blooms Simple Stampin Episode 43

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a new Simple Stamping card and video.  If's been awhile since I have shared a Simple Stamping card since the start of the Holidays.  I am happy to be back and happy to be sharing with you some new simple stamping.  Simple Stamping was designed to share and teach the joy of stamping with new stampers and people that have maybe done just a little stamping.  For my card today I am using the Sale-a-bration stamp set Thoughtful Blooms for my card today.  Here's a look at my card.

The Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set is a perfect floral stamp set for cards.  Make thank you cards and congratulations cards with the sentiments in this set, or mix and match this set with other stamp sentiments to make cards for any occasion.  This Two-Step Stampin’ set lets you layer images to create more depth and interest.  Get the stamp set with its coordinating punch, and make piles of cards in a snap!  Earn this stamp set FREE with a qualifying purchase January 3–March 31, 2020, during our Sale-A-Bration promotion!

For my card I stamped the a couple of the different larger flowers around the card along with the greenery.  I then filled in areas of the paper with the smaller flowers.  I added some more of the leaves and added this to my card base.  I then stamped the sentiment and added it to the card to finish off the simple stamping version of this card.  All of the supplies that I used to make this card will cost you before shipping and taxes $72.75.  Which would allow you to get the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set for FREE as your Saleabration choice.

For the Casual Crafter:  

Now for the casual crafter you can totally step this card up a little more by adding just a few more supplies.  For my causal crafter version of this same card I added in the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon, the Champagne Basic Rhinestones a Crumb Cake Ink Pad and the Small Bloom Punch along with some mini dimensionals.
I did the same design as before but stamped the vein image around the the card base in matching crumb cake ink.  Added the rhinestones and Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon to dress everything up just a little bit more.  With the addition of these few items at $93.25 before taxes and shipping you can still get the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp set for free.  Now if you add in a little bit more and brought your total up to $150 you would be able to get the Stamp Set and matching punch for free.  Plus qualify for stampin' rewards to use towards more free items.

Avid Stampers Card:  

Now for the Avid stampers version of this card I added in the Stitched So Sweetly dies to cut the hand made designer series paper but left everything else the same.  By using the dies it brought my before shipping and tax total to $125.25.  So by adding an additional 24.75 you would be able to get both the Stamp set and matching punch as your saleabration items and us Stampin' Rewards for some more freebies.  I would probably add in the matching stamp set to the Stitched So Sweetly dies to bring me over the $150 mark.

Case the Catalog: First Frost meets Feels Like Frost for a Fun Wedding Gift Card Holder

Hello and welcome to my blog; for this weeks CASE the catalog I am casing a card from the Feels Like Frost Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  We went to friends from churches engagement party last night and we needed a gift card holder.  So I created a fun gift card holder in their wedding colors.  I just happened to ask last week at church what their wedding colors were so it worked out wonderfully.  No, I didn't have any idea I was going to be making a gift card holder for them.  LOL!  Here's a look at the cute little gift card holder that I came up with.

And here's the card that I drew my inspiration from. My inspiration came from the small square card in the middle of this image.  This image can be found on page 40 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Their colors are gray and navy so I just happened to have Night of Navy and Basic Gray cardstock.  
Since the back side of the designer series paper has silver and white I pulled in those two colors as well with Smoky Slate and Whisper White to round everything out.
To make this card into a gift card holder wasn't two hard.  I used one piece of cardstock.  I cut it at 5 1/2 x 11 instead of the normal 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  I did this because I wanted a pocket on the inside for the gift card to sit in.  And I didn't want to glue in another piece of cardstock when I could just cut it to size.  Here's a look at the inside of the card.

I decorated the inside of the card and pocket with the left over designer series paper from the Feels like Frost DSP that I used on the front with a little Night of Navy mat.  I also added some left over stamped images from the First Frost Stamp set that is also on the front of the card.  I made a little notch in the pocket with my 1" circle punch so that the gift card would slide in and out easily.
To finish off the card and the presentation for the couple I stamped the flap of the envelope in the same colors that I used on the card.  Night of Navy, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate.  That finishes my card, I hope that you like it and that you may give this a try when you need a card for your next gift card.  Thanks for dropping by I will see you again on Monday for another fun project.

Happy Stampin'
