I recently purchased the new QuicKutz die cuts and some coordinating Hero Arts stamps. I was anxious to try them out, though I went with some Stampin’ Up stamps instead! The card kind of came together as I was working; I didn’t exactly have anything in mind when I started.
Actually, I had the green paper and the one where the tree/floral stamp is. It took a while to find some coordinating papers, but I found a scrapbooking set which not only had the paper, but the flowers, ribbon, and brads as well! It was like hitting the jackpot!
To make this card, you’ll need the following:
Stamp: Stampin’ Up set called Of the Earth, and the saying, not sure the name of the set
Ink: Stampin’ Up green; Tim Holtz distress ink
brown; glitter pen
Accessories: patterned paper, purple ribbon, paper flowers (purple and cream), brads
Paper: green, white (sponged green with brown on the edges), and dark purple
Die Cuts: QuicKutz scalloped rectangles

I got Stampin’ Up’s new set, Of the Earth. I decided to use earth tones and must have played with how to put these pieces together for an hour! It is a pretty card, but I want to play around a bit more and see what else I can do.
To make this card, you need the following:
Stamps: Stampin’ Up
Ink: Versafine, black
Paper: flecked yellow, rust, purple, and green; solid black; patterned paper to match.

Betsy Veldman is having a paper piecing competition, which inspired this paper pieced love card. I’ve had trouble using this stamp in the past, but always thought it had potential. I chose black and white because they are bold and classic colors. The splash of red was to bring a little more color and brightness. The red patterned paper was left over scrap from another project. A couple of grommets and ribbon finish it off.
Love stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.
Another view of the card. It is mostly cut and layered. Each change of color from black to white was hand cut. It got a little tricky when the pieces got smaller!
I have been spending more time finishing the insides of my cards. This one used left over pieces from the cover. I used the black hole circles from the hole punch that made the grommet holes.

Want to make this summer classic? Here’s what you’ll need.
The surfer, Surf’s Up, and waves are stamps from The Paper Company Studio. There is a little brown ribbon coming from the right of the surfer area. There are red grommets in the top right corner and brad-like stickers next to the words. Other than that, it’s a layered card with a little distressinging around the edges using a sponge dabbed in ink then dabbed on the edges of many of the layers including the base layer of the card.

Want to make this splash? Here’s what you’ll need:
The surfboards stamp is from Denami Design. The white swirls are from a Sissix, called “Swirly”. The sand is sandpaper from the hardware store. The waves and sunset sky were made using distress ink and sponges. The sky I sponged yellow first, then added orange around the edges. Other than that, it is just a layeirng project!
Here you can see that I used the glitter pen on the surfboards and the waves, to add a little sparkle.

The large pink brad shows a stamped image on the inside of the card. The stork and princess stamp inside are from Stampin’ Up, as well as the pink grommet. A little ribbon finishes the touches.

The champagne was colored in first, then the beads were sewn on. Add a few brads and and little ribbon, and we’re all set.
The glasses stamp is from Stampin’ Up and the Happy Anniversary is from My Sentiments Exactly. I did use the glitter pen at the top and traced the glasses in grey marker.
Welcome to Bagley Stamping! – the sister of http://stampingwithprincess.wordpress.com/. For the past seven years, my stamping supplies have lived with my sister while I worked abroad (China and Bolivia). After returning to the states to live, they have now come back to me! I also got a bunch of new additions from a new sister in-law, including some beads I had an inspiration to use! Behold, the first cards with the supplies at my house!
The flowers and greetings are Stampin’ Up stamps. The beads are generic beads sewn on. A glitter pen adds sparkle to the words, though you can’t see that until you zoom in. This wispy ribbon caught my husband’s attention, the first ribbon he’s noticed and complimented!
