Happy New Year!!! I am really looking forward to a new year and a new start! The past 6 months have been a whirlwind and some stamping therapy is definitely in order! Here is a quick & easy card design that you can use anytime using patterned paper….
This versatile sentiment is from the Tasteful Touches stamp set. I made a bunch of these cards to have on hand. I love the new Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper in the January – June Mini Catalog (page 15) that debuted this week.
I used the front and back of 3 different patterns on today’s cards. I stamped the sentiment on the muted side which coordinates with the beautiful floral prints. These cards were inspired by the card sketch below that my friend, Karen Hallam, shared.
Whenever I have a creative block I try using a card sketch and usually once I start creating the ideas begin to flow seeing the different possibilities. Here’s a look at each.
Here’s the details:
- Card Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
- Flowering Fields DSP – 2 x 4 3/4, 2 1/2 x 2 1/2, 1/2 x 4 (inside layer), 2 1/4 x 6 (for envelope)
- Cardstock Layer – 2 1/8 x 4 7/8
- Inside Layer – 4 x 5 1/4
- Add ribbon and Artistry Blooms Sequins to embellish
I had fun playing around with the ribbon for today’s cards. Here’s a close up showing some of the different ways you can add ribbon.
You can see the complete list of the products I used below.

Have a great day and a Happy Healthy Creative New Year!!!

Jeanie! So happy to see you back creating. It feels so good . . . right?!
My fave is the first one, the Blackberry Bliss.
Have a blessed day.
I have missed stamping! I just substituted playing with fabric (instead of DSP) while working on decorating our new home. LOL
It is so good to see you back! Beautiful cards!
Thank You Deanette! It’s great to be back in my craft room!!!
I like the blackberry bliss one but they are all lovely.
Hi Jeanie, Happy New Year! They are all beautiful but my favorite is the blackberry bliss card.
Thanks Sharon. I’m loving all the tulip colors!
Hi Jeanie, I have been waiting patiently for your return. Hope this new year brings you health, happiness, peace and love. My favorite card combo is the poppy parade but since I do not have that color on hand, I will choose the blackberry bliss card. All 3 of them are beautiful awill be so easy to make.
Thanks for waiting so patiently! I’ll be back to card kits soon!!!
Welcome back, Jeanie! And now I understand the text question! Thanks for the acknowledgement 🙂 My standout favorite of your cards is the Poppy Parade. Beautiful!
Thanks Karen! Appreciate the needed nudge of inspiration!
Hi Jeanie, all of them are very pretty, but my favorite is the poppy parade. Enjoy your day!
Hi Jeanie, Glad you are back and starting out with a simple, classy layout that will be easy to duplicate. Like them all, but the BlackBerry Bliss version would be my favorite.
Thanks Pat! You’ll be getting one of these cards with your new catalogs this week! Can’t remember which one was in your envelope. Hope it was your favorite! 🙂
So glad to see a post from you!
I can never pick favorites when you display multiples–BE REAL! They’re all gorgeous. Thanks for resuming your “job” as Inspirational Source. Can’t wait to see what’s next. Alphabet series, anyone???
Thanks Linda! I was thinking it’s time for a new alphabet series myself! I just need to find where I packed my idea notebook. LOL
Welcome back! I saw a card I’d made using one of your sketches this week and wondered if you’d be back! Love your take on the sketch…they’ll all pretty.
Thanks Susan! This move took much longer than anticipated!!! I’ve had fun decorating our new (and final) home and finally have my craft room organized enough to get to the fun stuff!!!
I Jeanie, so glad to see your post. The cards are fantastic! I have to vote for the pumpkin pie with the mango melody. I love yellow and orange tulips. Great sketch. Hoping you and your family had a wonderful holiday season, or at least the best you could. Hugs!!!
Hi Chris! I thought of you when I first saw this DSP! I’m sure you will have a blast creating with it for the tulip festival! We had a wonderful holiday as both our kids were able to be here! Can’t ask for more than that!
Love them all but most of all,I loved seeing a post from you!!!! Do you have any idea how much you have been missed??? Please don’t keep us waiting long before we receive another post! Happy New Year and I hope you are all settled in your new house!
Aww Dee Ann, you made my day!!! I am finally settled in our new home and love it here!!! Craft room is the last to finish and will be a work in progress for awhile but it’s organized enough for me to be able to get in and have fun creating!!! I have missed you all too!!!!!!
I am a true purple lover!! But, I have to say that my favorite is the Poppy Parade! It’s so bright and vibrant.
It was a dreary, foggy day today and that card just parked me right up! I always enjoy your posts! Thank you for sharing! Here’s to a Happy and Healthy new year!
Thanks Dawn! My daughter is a purple lover too! Glad the card perked up your day! My mom always bought us bright colored raincoats growing up as she said you needed that on a dreary rainy day! 🙂
Really pretty cards!! Love them all, but my favorite is the Poppy…it looks so happy!
Thanks Kathy! It seems to be a toss up between the Poppy Parade and Blackberry Bliss. I agree with you…the poppy looks so happy and bright!!!
I loved all the cards but my very favorite is the blackberry bliss. Thank you for including the card recipe for recreating this beautiful card. You are very talented and extremely kind. Blessings and hugs. Stay safe.
Happy New Year ! Good to see you back ! I like all of these cards because they are great layouts and
the colors are bright and cheerful . It will be fun putting some of these JEANIE layouts together !!
Love Poppy Parade and tulips!!! A win win!!
Great set of cards Jeanie! My favourite is in Pumpkin Pie & Mango Melody!
