The Gorgeous Leaves Bundle features the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set and the Intricate Leaves Dies. There are just way too many possibilities with this bundle to cover in one project or video. So, we are just going to look at using the dies to cut out felt today.

More Gorgeous Leaves Note Cards

Have you ever added felt to your cards before? I enjoy adding some different textures or textiles on occasion. Changing things up sometimes can be fun!

This stamp set is a great way to add interest to the background of your cards. I promise you will use the two “splotchy” stamps more than you think.

Any stamp set and most dies will work well for this layout. Play around and see what you love!

This card is my favorite. The Whimsical Trees Bundle was used on this card. I simply used a Blending Brush with Pool Party Ink to add a soft, little oval to my paper. Next, I added the trees cut from the felt to my card. And last, I stamped a sweet little tree on my envelope.

I hope that you were inspired to try adding some different things to your cards. As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Note Cards & Envelopes

I feel that some people have a misconception of our Note Cards & Envelopes. Mostly, I think that when people see the low price point they automatically assume the quality is low. This is not true at all! The cards have such a luxurious feel and the envelopes are the same quality as our Medium Envelopes. Note Cards & Envelopes are great for making large quantities of cards. Do you like to create cards while you travel? Our Note Cards & Envelopes are perfect for tucking into your travel bag!

Playing with these products brought me such joy! I was also reminded of bright sunny days that will soon be returning. As a result, I just might continue creating with this set tomorrow. 🙂 As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Ornamental Envelopes Bundle

The new Ornamental Envelopes Bundle and some of our Note Cards will be my choice to create a few quick and easy Christmas cards today. This bundle is unlike any other that Stampin’ Up is offering at this time. The Ornamental stamp set has stamps for Christmas and stamps for everyday use. The Envelopes Dies are AMAZING!

I’m An Addict…

I am a stationary junkie! I always have been. My Mother is to blame. She loved cards too. She always insisted that the clerk at the Hallmark store give us those big, round gold seals for the back of the envelopes. And it was my job to put them on. From getting that brand new tablet on the first day of school, to hoarding planner supplies, and needing to purchase everything that Stampin’ Up has to offer exposes my addiction! And notice I haven’t even made mention of my pen and marker stash! Therapy. I might need therapy. These dies are going to put my obsession over the edge!

Ornamental Envelopes Dies

My stationary obsession always kicks into high gear when a get an invitation or an announcement in the mail. The layers, the textures, the colors, and all of the fonts. But most of all the envelope liners! I was always intimidated at the thought of making one. However, the Ornamental Envelopes Dies makes beautiful liners in a snap! The dies offer SO many possibilities for decorating both the inside and outside of your envelopes. As a result, once you start creating with them, you just cannot stop!

Fast And Affordable

By using our Note Cards and Envelopes, you can skip straight to the designing and creating process. I chose to go with a very traditional Christmas color theme but you could use any Designer Series Paper or any of our inks to fit the occassion that you want. Not only do our Note Cards and Envelopes offer a quick ticket to the fun, but they are super affordable. They come in both the Very Vanilla and Whisper White. There are 20 cards and 20 envelopes in each pack for only $7.

Making your own handmade cards is so much fun and people that receive them appreciate your effort. You are able to make their card with them in mind and use the colors and elements that fit their personalities. Most importantly, they are happy that you thought of them and cared enough about them to send a card.

As always, be kind, send a card, and do something creative.
