Daisy Lane Flower Embellishments

I was inspired to create these flowers from the design on page 23 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. Peggy Noe with Pretty Paper Cards put together a You Tube Tutorial HERE.  I used the Daisy Lane bundle which includes the stamp set and Medium Daisy Punch. I also used the coordinating Daisy Punch which is the largest one. 
For the leaves I used the Poppy Moments Dies, Lovely Flowers Dies and the Sprig Punch in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green. I decorated this old window frame that I salvaged from my Great Grandparents house in Oklahoma City. The house was built in 1932 and still stands today. I used Glue Dots to stick the completed flowers to my frame.

It Starts With Art

Here's a cute card I made using yesterday's card layout. I used the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper, It Starts With Art stamp set and the coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies. The little felt embellishments are from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. I had an extra "Hello" sentiment from the Free as a Bird stamp set.

Free as a Bird - 30 Day Card Making Challenge

Today I decided to play along with Martin Stone's 30 Day Card Making Challenge. He's a Stampin' Up! Artisan from the UK. I cased this card from his Day 10, but you can join in anytime. 

I used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP) on a Shimmery White card base. I love how this design incorporates different pieces of the DSP. I cut a 2-1/2" square and layered five different half inch strips of the DSP and glued them to the square. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I painted a layer of glossy gel medium onto the square so that it looked more consistent as one piece. It's popped up onto the base with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

All of the images are fussy cut from the DSP. I stamped Hello from the coordinating Free as Bird stamp and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The little Made with Love charm is in the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit on page 172 of the Annual Catalog. The Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon is my favorite right now. 

Check back tomorrow. I am going to use this same design layout with the Follow Your Art DSP. To place an order just visit stampinup.com and please choose me as your demonstrator.

No Matter the Weather - Paper Pumpkin


It was so fun to sit down and create some Springtime cards with my March Paper Pumpkin kit. March's kit was special and came with two stamp sets! 
Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a pre-designed project. At least six times a year, Stampin' Up! sends an all card kit with eight or more cards. Sometimes the kit includes cards plus gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor, giftables, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—you’ll love it, or Stampin' Up! will make it right!

Timeless Tulips Sympathy Card

Created this beautiful sympathy card using the Timeless Tulips stamp set. I cased this idea from Jan Clothier, but changed up the background using the retired Woodgrain paper and a different sentiment. 

First I created the background stripe of ink using the Sponge Brayers with Pear Pizzaz, Petal Pink and Blackberry Bliss by masking off a 1- 3/4" stripe. I stamped the tulips in Blackberry Bliss and colored them in using the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends. The stems and leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzaz.  As I was stamping the stems, the edge of my stamping block put a green stripe on my last piece of DSP! So, I just went with it and inked the edge of my block with Pear Pizzaz and made some more lines. I think it turned out pretty neat! 

Please leave a comment and order at www.stampinup.com. This set will be available until June 2nd and comes in a bundle with the matching tulip punch (saving 10%).

Happy Easter, Happy Spring - Double Z Fold Easter Card

Those precious bunnies! I stamped the bunnies from the Wildly Happy stamp set and fussy cut them to create these two Double Z fold cards. I used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. One 12" x 12" sheet creates two cards of this design. 
The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in the mini catalog. Click the PDF on the sidebar. You can order from the mini catalog until June 2nd.
The Ornate Frames Dies created this beautiful, fancy Old Olive background for the sentiment. The flowers were die cut from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits dies.

Social Distancing Meerkats - Miss you!

The Gang's All Meer was a Sale-A-Bration set that I earned free from last month's promotion. I cased this card from a couple of sources (Nancy Novak and Lyssa Zwolanek- layout) and stepped it up. The images are colored with Stampin' Blends. The color combo is Granny Apple Green and Crumb Cake. Hope you are staying well! Keep calm, quarantine and stamp!
