Did you see this Live Beautifully product?

Have you seen this month’s special?
Happy National Scrapbook month & for that reason, we have the Live Beautifully products available the entire month of May.


I sat down last weekend to play and tried to just focus on using this stamp set & papers.
I’ve already created a 20 card kit with it and it was beautiful, but I wanted to see what I could do with the leftover scraps and so far, I’ve created these 5 cards….

With just scraps!!!

I found all these ideas on Pinterest and created them with just a few tweaks for the items I had left over.
Here is a closer view at each of them.


In the card above, I stamped the flower in Pomegranate, then I took the CTMH Gold pen and traced all the lines in the stamped image. I stamped the leaves in New England Ivy and added some white Shimmer trim to where the edges of the papers met in the middle.


I stamped the above card using Sorbet ink and then did a second generation stamping on the rest of the white background. I then used my Orange water color pencil to shade in some areas on the flower and my water brush to blend it in a bit. I stamped the sentiment using Archival Black ink & matted it on a piece of Sorbet card stock.


I stamped the image above using Lemon ink and then took my Orange watercolor pencil and added some shading for dimension. I stamped the leaves in Willow ink and the sentiment in Archival black.


Above, I stamped the flowers in Pomegranate ink and the leaves in Willow. I added a strip of gold glitter paper to the edge of the card, which looks great with that black and white paper.


And this one has to be a favorite of the ones created that day. I stamped the flower in Pixie ink and then the leaves I stamped in Fern and rolled the edges of the leaves in New England Ivy. I stamped the sentiment in Slate ink on the gray striped paper.

There are so many ideas I’ve seen using this month’s special.

You can find all the ideas I see on my Pinterest board HERE for this special paper & stamp set.

You can find all the supplies to create these cards on my website at

And don’t forget, these are only good while supplies last or during the month of May and then they will be retired!

Thanks for stopping by!
