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!!!
