Honey Bee Buckle Card

Hello my stamping friends.  I have a cute buckle card to share with you today using products from the new 2020 Mini Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

More Daisy Lane with Merry Merlot




Hello, hello.  Welcome back to my blog.  I am still creating with the Daisy Lane stamp set and came up with this really simple card.  The greeting is stamped on the largest Merry Merlot layer with VersaMark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder.  The layer is then embossed with the Tufted 3D folder.  I stamped the stem and daisy with versamark ink onto Merry Merlot cardstock and then heat embossed with white powder.  I used the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Labels die to cut out the stamped image.  I then used the 3rd largest Stitched Nested Labels to cut just the ends out of Whisper White and then layered them behind the stamped image.  I used the Detailed Trio punch to make a hole on the right side of my label layer to thread the ribbon through.  The label is adhered to the Merry Merlot layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used another piece of ribbon to tie a bow which is added to the flower stem with glue dots.  Adhere the Merry Merlot to the card base and the card is all done.  Quick and simple, but I love how it turned out.  For the inside and the envelope, I stamped the stem and daisy in Merry Merlot ink.

Measurements: 
Thick Whisper White: 4¼ x 11 scored at 5½
Merry Merlot: 4 x 5¼ and 4¾ x 2½
Whisper White: 2 pieces 2 x 2½
Ribbon: 5 & 8 inches (my ribbon is retired, but the polka dot tulle would look awesome)

Daisy Lane meets Over the Moon



Hello, hello.  I'm back again today with another Daisy Lane card.  I paired it up with one of the adorable cows from Over the Moon.  I just love these little cows, they are so cute.  My card base is thick Whisper White with a layer of Basic Gray on top.  I stamped the little daisies randomly over the Basic Gray layer.  The cow is stamped on Whisper White with Basic Gray ink and colored with the following Blends markers:  Light Call Me Clover, Dark Petal Pink, Dark Crumb Cake, Light Gray Granite, Dark Mango Melody, Smoky Slate combo and Flirty Flamingo combo.  I stamped 3 of the small daisies in Flirty Flamingo and then punched with the coordinating punch.  A Perennial Essence Floral Center finishes off the daisy.  The cow is cut out with the 4th largest layer oval and then I gathered some polka dot tulle ribbon around the outside using tear & tape to secure the ribbon, making a little frame.  For the sentiment I used the Delicate Lace dies to cut a strip of Flirty Flamingo and then used the classic label punch on the greeting.  The heart epoxy droplets are colored with the dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends.  For the envelope and inside of card I stamped the little daisy with Basic Gray ink.


Measurements: 
Thick Whisper White: 4¼ x 11, scored at 5½
Basic Gray: 4 x 5¼
Whisper White: 2 x 5 for the daisies and 3 x 2 for the cow and 3/8 x 2½ for greeting
Flirty Flamingo: 1 x 4

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
