Masterpieces_927_galleryHi there! Today I’m so excited to join Simon Says Stamp and several other amazingly talented designers in a hop to showcase the awesome new Masterpiece Box released by Simon Says Stamp. The box features 15 products from 10 different manufacturers featuring new releases that are yet to be released…how exciting!!
SSS-Happy Days & WPlus 9-Large AlphabetMy project features the fun Large Alphabet set by WPlus9 & Happy Days by Simon Says Stamp. Both of these sets have yet to be released and won’t be for several months, BUT you can get them now as part of the Masterpiece Box.
SSS-Happy Days & WPlus 9-Large AlphabetI used emboss resist for the both the background and the floral images. I blended in my favorite trio of distress inks right now: Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon & Cracked Pistachio.
SSS-Happy Days & WPlus 9-Large AlphabetI used one of the Basic Banners dies to die cut my sentiment strip.

  12. Beautiful cards! Thanks for the tips about your favorite color combos. Will be trying those on my next project. Exciting blog hop….thanks for sharing!

  13. I really like how you used the letters. Really sets up everything you did, so well! Also love the color combos!

  14. I love your zest for card making! You are fun to watch and listen too! Thanks for making me smile on this awesome Saturday!

  15. A delightful video and lovely card. Yes- I remember “walking up hill both ways to school” – sometimes I still do.

  16. OMGOSH I WANT THEM ALL! I also want to be size 8 and be 33 again! oh well, no biggie, i can wait! what fun what fun!!!! im a sucker for fonts too! it’s a sickness……………

  17. Laura what a great card and the background with the Alpha stamp set… I just love and your color combo I must try it… makes me feel like I’m in the Caribbean. Thank you for sharing and your singing Masterpiece too funny.

  18. Laura you are so entertaining. You could be coloring dog poop and gluing it to a card and make it fun and wonderful!

  19. I love your videos – no matter what type of card you’re making or what you’re showcasing! This one for the Masterpiece Box is lovely! TY for inspiring me to get out my Distress Inks and blend a beautiful background.

  20. I seriously need to use that technique more – it produces such gorgeous results – your card is breathtaking!

  21. Wow, your card is stunning! Love that inked background and I too also love those colors together. I get spoiled with having dies too, lol, but I don’t mind fussy cutting either. Like you, I find it very therapeutic. This Masterpiece Box is amazing as well. Hugs, Brenda.

  22. The card is beautiful and the video is very helpful.
    I’m new to crafting and the blogs are a great help. Thank You

  23. What is not to love about your card. You use favourite colour combo, the Alphabet stamp is to die for and the flowers and leaves are great to organize a floral display. The only thing for me is that no matter how hard I try my fussy cutting is bad…( and I am old school). Love the box and love your design.

  24. “Put that in your back pocket and save it for a rainy day.” You crack me up all the time. Best quote of the hop! 🙂 Love your card! So cheerful!

  25. Love this, especially the background. Didn’t think much of the Alpha set, but I’ve seen it used twice now, and I’m suddenly thinking I gotta get me one!

  26. Wow Laura, your card is stunning! I love the background colors and idea of the alpha stamp! Thanks for another great video!

  27. I really really like how you took so many items and made a busy card look so beautiful and simple. Love your color choices also. God bless and have a great weekend

  28. Love your video, world’s just a much better place with them! Fabulous card. And I’m planning on bring out the magical distress trio today. Thanks Laura.

  29. What a gorgeous card!!! I never tire of your beautiful ink blending, and your videos never fail to make me giggle. The Masterpiece Box is amazing…full of such crafty goodness!!!

  30. Woohoo! You used my favorite of the new stamps. I love the Happy Day stamp set. Now that I have seen it used, I love it even more. Well done. I pinned to my SSS board.

  31. So I’m thinking I cant live without the Cardinal and the large alphas!! And everything else in the box is just a great big bonus!! Can’t wait for my box!!

  32. What a gorgeous card Laura. This set from SSS is beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us and the chance to win.

  33. I love watching your videos!! You are so funny and down to earth! Makes me feel like I can do what you do. Love your card!! The colors are gorgeous! Thank you!!

    I can’t believe you said” …walked to school, uphill both ways!” This must have been a universal right of passage for parents, back in the day! My Dad added “In bare feet, in the snow!” I am Canadian, so that part might have been reserved for our neck of the woods! LOL Either way, this was too funny.
    Anywho…a fabulous Masterpiece that you have created WITH this Masterpiece collection!

  35. What a catchy card! Loved watching the Online Card Class video with you as a guest. Love your jokes and random thoughts during your videos! 🙂

  38. I am loving those letters! Super pretty card! What a collection of goodies in the package! Thank you for sharing your project!

  39. Laura, you always make me laugh (out loud, even) …love watching your videos!!! Can’t wait to get my hands on the floral set.

  40. So glad you used my favorite set from the collections – although I might have liked the card more if you had actually used ‘How Ya Doin’ Hot Stuff’!!

  41. Love your card, as always!!! Those three colors with the ink blending, are bee-utifull!!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

  42. Always enjoy your videos, Laura because I always get so much inspiration from them. this card is gorgeous with the soft color tones and flowers:)

  43. YOU created a masterpiece with this card! Loving the alphabet stamp set by W Plus 9. Thank you for the video.

  44. I don’t know how you make these perfect blended backgrounds; mine always look splotchy! Thanks for sharing another adorable card.

  45. As usualy, a lovely card! Always like your videos – you always treat us to some of your vocalization! Entertaining in more than one way!

  46. Love how you used the letters for a background. Just like you love to emboss, I love Distress Ink. I can’t make a card without it. Great color combination. Thanks!

  47. I enjoy your YouTube videos, they’re always so much fun! I end up with a smile on my face by the end every time! Thank you!

  48. Than you so much for sharing what you do – love your accent and positivity! Your ink blending is just stunning!

  50. Oh, Laura, the technique you used on the Oh Happy Day flower stamps really made them blooming beautiful!!! 😊 They look amazing! Thanks for sharing the card!

  51. Don’t you just love the Oh Happy Day stamp set from SSS? I’m an easy touch for flowers. Your card is gorgeous, Dear. Thanks

  52. Really gorgeous card, Laura! Love how you blended your beautiful background, too…Thanks for being part of the hop!!!

  53. Before I viewed this video, I had used the distress ink combo that you used and I love it. What gorgeous colors together! That Happy Days stamp set from Simon is my 2nd favorite from the box…layering cardinal from HA is first. Your card is stunning! BTW…I love to fussy cut…it’s therapeutic! LOL!

  54. Beautiful, and I really like how you pulled your flowers up a bit for dimension. Fusay cut flowers tend to do that better anyway. What I really loved was hearing that you futz with placement – glad to hear even the experts do it, too!

  55. Those oranges and pink reds are gorgeous together and look great complemented on the bluesy background. Like a sunset on a tropical ocean.

  56. Beautiful cards Laura. I love how you finish almost every card with a few sequins. How do you decide where to put them and how many? Always3?

  57. This is a true beauty!! I really love this set. Wanda used this one in that awesome yellow ink that comes in the Masterpiece box. Thanks for sharing always enjoy your videos!

  58. Your card is gorgeous, Laura! I love these floral stamps and thanks for the tip on the colour combo for ink blending! It is indeed gorgeous! I don’t mind fussy-cutting either – I find it relaxing! Thanks for your video! This is an awesome collection! Love the variety – something for everyone! Enjoy your weekend!

  59. I also love that combo of distress inks… Now I have to run out to the store because I don’t have one of them. I just have to avoid looking at the stamps at the store because I have a problem: if I see a stamp with coordinating die I will buy it because I am such a baby about fussy cutting. You made me laugh!!

  60. Love the flowers.. this was my first choice when Jennifer asked which set we would pick first..
    I also loved the way you had the letters peaking out behind the flowers.. great job Girl!!!

  61. How fun! I just love the mixture of the products- so glad they all came together for this!

  62. Lovely card as usual Laura, thank you. I really like the embossing over blended background technique, so soft and pretty. Then the added loveliness of embossed flowers, just beautiful!!

  63. Lovely card, Laura. I love your blending, just gorgeous! You make it look so easy. Keep the videos coming! You always sound so happy…keep spreading the joy!!

  64. Your are the best, Laura. Can’t wait to put a card together that looks that good. NOT! But a girl can try.

  65. You really brought out the best in the alphabet stamp set. Love the stitching on the letters.

  66. Laura, I’ve mentioned before, you always make me smile!!! This stamp set is so pretty, and the 3 distress colors, that you are hooked on, go really well together.

  67. Great colors. So bright and cheery. (I hate fussy cutting, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!, right?)

  68. I love your happy colored card and of course listening and watching your videos always makes me smile your enthusiasm is contagious!

  69. Wow, you always create the most attractive cards. Love the colors you used for the flowers and background. Great job.

  70. Hi, Laura…another Laura here! I love what you did with the Oh Happy Day stamp set! I saw a video by Yana Smakula first…behind on watching my email videos…and discovered the Master piece Box! I ordered it right away! I can’t wait to get everything! I think I’m using the same stamp set first! Oh, Happy Day!!!

  71. The background is perfect. I love the colors and awesome way to use the alphabet stamps. Those flowers are a favorite for sure.. yeah a die would be awesome but looks like they are pretty easy to cut out. Thanks for the video..

  72. I love the bright colors against the pale blue background. I really like that stamp set. It has so many possibilities. Thank you for the great video and wonderful inspiration.

  73. I am beaming with sunshine bliss like your wonderful card -the color mix is perfect-
    I immediately wrote down the colors as so pretty and my ideas are many for them
    Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us -have a blooming ray of sunshine day !!

  74. I just knew I was going to see some fabulous embossing and inking on your blog hop creation. Beautiful, just like I knew it would be.

  75. love, love, love the background of this card. . . I, too, had to walk up hill both ways to shcool. . . so enjoy your videos. . . .

  76. Love your card, especially the colors. And I love how you can really see the stitch patterns from the alphabet stamp set.

  77. I just love following your videos; you have some much fun making the cards. Such beautiful colour combos. Love the creativity !!!!!!!!! Very inspiring 🙂

  78. Gorgeous color combo with the new stamps from the Masterpiece collection! Completely a good time to visit here!

  79. Laura, I just LOVE watching your videos ! You made me laugh EVERY TIME ! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful card ! The colors are just gorgeous ! Thank you, our color blending queen !!

  80. Such a delightful card, Laura! Loved your video, as usual. The masterpiece box certainly is chock full of goodies!

  81. I simply don’t emboss enough; you’ve inspired me! And it’s not the new generation that use dies instead of fussy cutting – us older folks who have to wear readers like them too!

  82. Just gorgeous, Laura! Will have to remember this colour combo for the background. I recently bought the last two mini distress ink sets, so I’m good to go. I will also have a go at colouring some flower images the way you did. Quick and fabulous!

  83. DELIGHTFUL card Laura!!!
    LOVE your CHEERY colours and design, LOVE that you have used two of my favourites from this box of MAGNIFICENT stamps!!! I ADORE your inky background too and added this combo to my list to try together real soon => THANK YOU for sharing 🙂

  84. Oh, Laura, it’s such a gorgeous card. You’re a fun person to listen to and the bonus is what you create is enviable. Thank you.

  85. Laura I always enjoy your videos, I always smile so much my face hurts! Lovely card, great colors. What a great box of goodies.

  86. Those are three of my favorite distress colors – beautiful background! And I too had to walk two miles to school uphill both ways – I tell my grandkids that all the time! Thank you for the gorgeous card!

  87. Your videos are always a treat, Laura. Interesting card: I wouldn’t have thought of using this rather funky alphabet with floral focals, but it works so well!

  88. I love the flowers and colors that you used. You are selling me on the idea of using more florals

  89. love the way you did the background! i’ve never thought to use letters in that way and the timing of that technique was perfect as I just finished the occ heat wave class!

  90. Love the floral set! I would love this masterpiece box but between the exchange rate and shipping, it would cost me an arm and a leg!

  91. Your flower cluster bouquet was just beautiful! You did a nice job. I want SSS Oh happy day stamp set now. You are sooo funny. Thanks for brighten up my day. Joyce

  92. wow! These were probably my two least favorite stamps in the set, but I just love what you did with them. Great card!

  93. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL card!!! Gorgeous colors and those blooms are freaking amazing!! Love the way you did your bluetiful background with the alphabet letters!! You are the color QUEEN!!!

  94. Laura, I love the card and I agree about the blue green inking for happiness. I love blue and green… Maybe it’s because I’m from a tropical island? TFS!

  95. Love this card! My favorite colors – definitely an ocean breeze feeling kind of card with the beautiful flowers against the ocean colors.

  96. You seem to have so much fun whilst you are creating the cards – the effect spreads and I feel the same way. Keep it going Laura!

  97. Love this and all of your cards! The blended colors for the blue-green background are awesome! I’ll be picking up mermaid lagoon because I’m missing that one in my collection!

    Thanks for posting this great card and the awesome giveaway!

  98. What a gorgeous card; the colours are delicious. You are so right about those background colours! They definitely would cheer someone up. Love your videos and thanks for sharing your talent.

  99. Really love your card and I am so going to try that distress ink combination, it looked awesome when you did it!

  100. I really don’t mind some fussy cutting… all the coordinating dies are cool; but they don’t look as nice as some carefully handcut little touches you’ve taken the time to do yourself.

  101. I love this card and you’ve sold me on the three color combo of Distress inks. They are fabulous together! I will definitely be using them on my next card! Thanks for sharing!

  102. I love flowers! If I didn’t have a broken foot and those Ninja squirrels in our yard didn’t dig up the flower seeds in my pots, I would have tons of flowers in my yard! Can I plant yours in my front yard? I’d even laminate it so it wouldn’t get ruined when it rained! LOL The colors are so pretty and you’ve used my favorite color, yellow. That always makes me smile! The background is cool too! I want to win something!

  103. Love your video. The card is so pretty! I can’t wait to try making a similar card with distress inks.

  104. Great card, I love both of the stamp sets you used. The alphabet is going to be really useful and I love those flowers!

  105. Love the color combo for card base. I will be trying that out tonight. Thanks for all your inspiration.
