Daisy Lane - Smile





Hello, welcome to my blog.  I have another card for you today using the Daisy Lane bundle.  This bundle is so versatile and coordinates with a lot of other products from Stampin' Up!  I started with a thick whisper white base and then added layers of Mossy Meadow and Garden Lane designer series paper.  The daisies are stamped in Mango Melody.  I did two on scrap Whisper White and punched out with the coordinating punch.  I also stamped one daisy right on my Whisper White layer.  The stem is stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink and the greeting is stamped in Mossy Meadow.  Some twine from the Magnolia Lane ribbon combo pack and some Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets finish off the card. For the inside and the envelope I used the smaller daisy to add a flower.


 All of the measurements and supplies list are below.

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White: 4¼ x 11 scored at 5½
Mossy Meadow: 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, 2-3/8 x 5-1/8, 1-5/8 x 3-5/8, 4-5/8 x 2-1/8

Daisy Lane

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It's been awhile since I have shared with you and thought I should get back in the saddle.  I am loving the new Daisy Lane bundle.  The flowers are beautiful and coordinate with Daisy Delight as well.  I am on a mission to sell three Daisy Lane bundles, or three of the Daisy Lane stamp sets.  If I accomplish this, then I will be getting a free stamp set out of the upcoming holiday catalog from Stampin' UP!  I have a free PDF tutorial file for you should you decide to purchase this stamp set/bundle from me.  Here is a snippet of the 4 cards included in the tutorial:



My card today uses products from the Noble Peacock suite along with the Daisy Lane bundle.  I love the colors in this suite so used them as my inspiration for my card.  The Noble Peacock Foil Sheets are absolutely beautiful and include Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and Blueberry Bushel.  My card base is thick Whisper White and then a layer of Blueberry Bushel embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.  A layer of the Old Olive foil serves as the background for my focal point of daisies.  All of the daisies were stamped with Pretty Peacock ink.  The 2 smaller ones were then hand cut.  The middle daisy is 3 layers of the smaller daisy that coordinates with the medium daisy punch.  I added some Wink of Stella to all of the centers.  A piece of reversible ribbon goes across the middle of the card and then the daisies are added with dimensionals.  Some of the Noble Peacock Rhinestones are scattered about to finish off the card.

Daisy Lane, friend, Stampin Up, www.hollyscrafting.com



For the inside of the card the stem is stamped in Old Olive and the flower is stamped in Pretty Peacock.  The sentiment is stamped in Blueberry Bushel.

Under The Misteltoe paired with Peaceful Noel



Hello, welcome to my blog.  My share for you today is a gift card holder.  My team leader, Frenchie, gives us a challenge each month at our meetings and this month was to use Under The Mistletoe designer series paper (dsp) and combine it with a gift card.  The top dsp in my pack was the one with all the pine cones on it and was screaming the Pretty Pines thinlits so I went to work creating.  On my Whisper White layer I used the stamp set Peaceful Noel to create some greenery under my strip of dsp. I pulled colors from the paper and stamped with Old Olive, Shaded Spruce and Real Red.  The paper also has Night of Navy in it so I stamped the greeting with Night of Navy and mounted the dsp layer onto a layer of Night of Navy.  Once the card was assembled, I cut a pine cone out of Soft Suede and layered it with a detailed pine cone cut from Early Espresso.  A little Wink of Stella gives it a nice shimmer.  Under the pine cone I added pine boughs cut in Old Olive and Shaded Spruce.  On the bottom of the inside I stamped the sentiment I Night of Navy and the  added some little holly berries with Old Olive and Real Red.


To create the gift card holder I added a strip of dsp to a layer of Whisper White and adhered it to the top, inside of the card with some liquid glue, just putting glue on 3 sides so that the gift card could be slipped under it and secured.

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White - 8½ x 5½, scored at 4¼
Night of Navy - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 and 1¾ x 5¼
Whisper White - 5¼ x 4 and 3½ x 1¾
DSP - 5¼ x 1½ and 3½ x 1½
scraps of Old Olive, Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede and Early Espresso

Instructions:
  1. fold card base in half
  2. adhere large Night of Navy layer to card base
  3. stamp greeting on Whisper White layer in Night of Navy ink at the bottom right corner
  4. randomly stamp the leaf images across the middle of Whisper White layer, making sure you are leaving enough of a gap that they will appear under the dsp layer
  5. adhere dsp to Night of Navy strip, then adhere to center of card front with dimensionals
  6. cut pine boughs and pine cones from scrap paper
  7. adhere pine bought to dsp strip then add a pine cone with dimensionals
  8. brush pine cone with Wink of Stella
  9. stamp sentiment on inside, bottom with Night of Navy
  10. stamp some hollies on the inside as well
  11. on the top, inside we will create the gift card holder by adhering the 3½ x 1½ strip of dsp to the coordinating Whisper White strip
  12. put liquid glue on 3 sides of this strip and adhere to top, inside of card, making sure you leave enough room to add your gift card
  13. adorn with other pine cones brushed with Wink of Stella

Amazing Congratulations


Hello, welcome to my blog!




My share today is for one of my co-workers that just found out she's having a little boy so I thought the Amazing Congratulations stamp set would be perfect for her card.  My card base is thick whisper white, but a I put a full sized layer of Night of Navy over the top of the white.  My Wood Texture dsp layer is next.  I stamped the Congratulations on Whisper White with Marina Mist, Pacific Point and Night of Navy.  The smaller sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy.  This was then layered onto a piece of Marina Mist.  I punched two holes on either side of the "g" so that I could go under the layer and not cover up the tail of the "g" with the crinkled Night of Navy seam binding ribbon.  I tied a knot on the front and then adhered it to the card base with dimensionals.  That's it for today, thanks so much for stopping by.

Measurements:
Thick Whisper White: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 and folded in half
Night of Navy: 5 1/2 x 4/1/4
Wood Textures dsp: 5 1/2 x 3 1/2
Marina Mist: 5 x 1 7/8
Whisper White: 4 3/4 x 1 5/8

Picture Perfect Birthday


Hello, welcome to my blog!


My share for you today is a card I made for a co-worker who just turned 50.  I love the Picture Perfect Party dsp in the Occasions catalog.  It is so fun and great for a celebration.  And talk about an easy card to put together.  My base is Bermuda Bay with  a layer of Lemon Lime Twist added that has been embossed with the Simple Stripes folder.  Then a layer of the Picture Perfect Party dsp pretty much finishes the card.  I did cut the 50 out with the Large Numbers framelits from gold foil paper.  Some Lemon Lime Twist striped ribbon finishes off the front.


I wanted to bring the celebration to the inside of the card so I fussy cut some of the party blowers out from the dsp and adhered them to my white layer.  The sentiment comes from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set which is stamped in Bermuda Bay.  That's it for today, thanks for stopping by!!

Measurements:
Bermuda Bay: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 and folded in half

Grown With Love


Hello, welcome to my blog!



 My share today is a card I made last year for a friend of mine.  I just wanted to let her know that I was thinking of her and had not put ink to the Grown With Love stamp set yet.  I colored the wagon with the stampin write markers Real Red, Basic Black and Smokey Slate.  The veggies were colored with the stampin write markers Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Garden Green, Old Olive Real Red and Tangerine Tango.  The coordinating die set, Garden Grown framelits, made it a breeze to cut these out.  If you buy the stamp set and the framelits together as a bundle you can save 10%.  I love it when I can save on my products!  My sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Since I used the markers on the veggies, I didn't have to mask off the sentiment that is on that stamp, I just left it blank and added my own.  The card base, wagon and veggies are all Very Vanilla.  My background layer is from the Wood Textures dsp stack.  I adhered the Dapper Denim layer to the wood paper, then wrapped a length of the Peekaboo Peach crinkled seam binding ribbon around both layers and tied it in a bow on the front and adhered to the card base.  I then added a layer from the Color Theory dsp stack on top of the Dapper Denim and added the wagon and veggies to that with dimensionals.  I love how it turned out.  Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Measurements:
Very Vanilla: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 and folded in half, 3 x 2 1/2, 2 1/4 x 1 1/2
Wood Texture dsp: 4 x 5 1/4
Dapper Denim: 3 1/4 x 2 3/4
Color Theory dsp: 3 x 2 1/2

Petal Passion Memories and More cards



Hello, welcome to my blog.  My share today includes two products from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and the Occasions catalog.  I absolutely love the Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes and the Petal Passion Memories and More cards.  Putting the products together makes such quick and easy cards, you can do a bunch in no time.  All of the cards have been cut down, but I gave the cards away before taking measurements so I'm not sure what sizes they are.  They were each then mounted on Basic Black cardstock and adhered to the card bases.  The flowers were colored with the Blends markers and the sentiment comes from All Things Thanks stamp set.  Three of the cards got some Metallic Enamel Shapes and the Lemon Lime Twist card got some Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.  That's it for today, thank you so much for stopping by!

Petal Passion Memories & More




Hello, welcome to my blog.  My share for you today is another card made from the Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes paired with the Petal Passion Memories and More cards.  These products take all the work out of designing a card and are so quick and easy.  For this card I used the Lemon Lime Twist base and simply added a Basic Black layer and a Petal Passion Memories and More card.  A few of the new Tutti-Frutti Adhesive Backed Sequins and a sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.  A team-member of mine has just been diagnosed with breast cancer so I wanted her to know that I was thinking of her.  Having been there myself, I know the cards I received really brightened my day so that is my goal with this card.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Painted Harvest Thanksgiving




Hello, welcome back to my blog.  My share with you today is a card I made for Thanksgiving, but never shared.  I'm trying real hard to get better at blogging and sharing my creations.  I started off with a card base of Old Olive, added a strip of dsp from the Daisy Delight package across the middle.  A layer of Early Espresso was added and then a layer from the Wood Textures dsp stack.  I stamped the full image of the sunflower in Crushed Curry and the more detailed image in Cajun Craze.  I then turned my full image stamp and stamped another layer of Crushed Curry.  I saw Patty Bennett do this and think it adds so much to the flower.  This piece was then cut with the Stitched Shape Framelits and layered onto Old Olive, which was then adhered to the card front at the top of the wood textures layer.  The greeting comes from the stamp set At Home With You stamped in Early Espresso and cut with the banner from the Large Letters framelits.  A little Crushed Curry was sponged on the edges of the banner and then it was adhered to the bottom of the wood textures layer with dimensionals.  That's if for today, thank you so much for stopping by.

Measurements:
Old Olive: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 and folded in half for card base, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
Delightful Daisy dsp: 2 x 4 1/4
Early Espresso: 3 1/2 x 4 1/2
Wood Textures dsp: 3 1/4 x 4
Whisper White: 2 5/8 x 2 5/8
