Daisy Delight Addiction!

I am soooo happy that the Daisy Punch is back in stock!  This is by far my favorite items so far!  So easy to make quick cards like the one above!  I literally made this in 5 minutes flat!  I love to use the color combinations that they have in the Designer Series Paper designs!  I just flip over the pack and read the colors used!  To add more colors you can stamp off your inks for lighter shades of the ink pads!  Gives you more mileage on your ink and color choices!

I just stamped color on color (Wisteria Wonder) and punched out 2 daisies.  Used a couple glue dots to adhere together.  Then I used my bone folder to fluff the petals.  To create the fun fold, I cut the DSP paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Then I cut down the center with the Paper Trimmer (helpful because you control how far the blade cuts into your paper). Finally I folded the pieces back on themselves and placed some adhesive on the back to keep them flat.  Crease with a Bone Folder to help.  I finished it off with a Silver Faceted gem and took out my Calypso Coral marker to add the faux stitches.

Delicate Faux Linen

final-10

This was one of the techniques that came to mind when I first saw the Colorful Seasons bundle!  Faux Linen was one of the very first cards I made over 9 years ago!  I am surprised that it’s taken me this long to do that technique again!  We made this card for our stamp club this month!  Super simple!!

  1. Use a neutral or light color card stock for your base.  I used Soft Sky in this photo.
  2. Take a piece of tissue that you use for gift wrapping.  Stamp desired images on it. Then wad it up one to two times and flatten it out. I chose not to stamp on the tissue here.
  3. Use your Tombo Multi Purpose glue and apply to the whole card base using a sponge piece.  (I store mine in a baggie to keep it moist).
  4. Gently use your fingers to lay your tissue down and smooth out most of the wrinkles.  You want some.  (Elmer’s glue works too, but it tears the tissue easily).
  5. Let dry and attach to your card!

I was able to stamp the sentiment directly on it when it was dry.  I also used the Fine Tip Glue pen to attach the branch.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere the flowers together.  There is a whole piece and a detailed piece to make 3 different flowers.  cherry blossom

I then used a blender pen with Berry Burst to color the centers.  A pearl added the finishing touch!

Hope you enjoued this card as much as I did making it!  LOVE cherry blossoms!  You can order this and other items at my website! Remember to get your loyalty rewards too!  Any order of $150 or more is eligible for host benefits!

Bright birthday

I have seen a lot of cards using this super fun Happy Birthday Framelit!  I was trying for a multi layer for height only, but by accident it moved.  I love how it’s offset and really pops off the paper!

I will admit, when I first saw Lemon Lime Twist I wasn’t too sure about it.  But I have grown to love it! It just adds fun, pop, and a touch of whimsy to cards! I wanted a fun background, so I used the two circles from the Eastern Beauty Stamp set!

I then added some balloons to make it more festive!  I cut out 1 Basic Black sentiments and 3 Lemon Lime Twist.  All of the Lemon Lime Twist I glued together with the Fine Tip Glue Pen. (TIP: act like you are writing when you apply the glue-and I used the Silicone Mat to keep the glue off of my surface). Then I applied glue to the Basic Black and off set the letters to create the pop!  I used dimensionals for the balloons and behind the Whisper White piece.

Happy Stampin’!

Elegant and Oh, So Eclectic 

I won the Oh, So Eclectic set at On Stage in April.  I finally got to play with the set and the coordinating dies this week!  I love the geometric shapes that one die cuts out! This card is for this month’s stamp club!

I first cut the flowers out with the two dies (one for the detail and the outline to cut it out) that nestle together nicely!  (figured the nestle part out the 2nd time) Next, I used the matching ink color to stamp the watercolor image to match the flower cut outs.  I did use Wink of Stella on the centers.  Then I used the Lemon Lime Twist to add that pop of color!

I added some texture with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder!  These are so great for vivid detail!  I finished off the card with Silver Foil behind the geometric pattern and a sentiment.

Crafting Forever Fun

Crafting Forever is such a fun set!  All of the attendees of Center Stage were presented this set in April at our dinner.  There are great pictures of scissors, brushes, a stamp, and the cute pens above!  There is even a Stampin’ Up! Copyright stamp in there so you can sell your creations while complying with the Angel Policy.

I cut the card stock just a hair taller than the pens.  The stamp has 3 pens lined up-so I just stamped them side by side.  I did make the paper longer so I could cut off the ends that weren’t straight.

I made this card for this Sunday’s New Catalog  Open House! I did stamp off the Real Red ink before stamping on my paper. I paired it with Wild Wasabi leaves and Basic Black for the pistils. The sentiment is from Eastern Palace, I just straightened the word before stamping. I wanted some texture with out adding too much-so I used the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder with Real Red.
