Delightful Daisy

Stampin' Up! Daisy Punch and Daisy Delight Stamp Set

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Punch and Daisy Delight Stamp Set

Hello Stampers!

Punches help make projects easy! Once again, I pulled out Stampin’ Up!’s Daisy Punch and coordinating stamp set Daisy Delight to create this thank-you card.

Here’s how it goes together:

  • Card base: Whisper White Thick
  • Designer Series Paper: Happiness Blooms. Cut at 5 ¼ x 4 inches
  • Top layer: Whisper White Thick cut at 5 x 3 ¾ inches
  • Punch the Daisy from the Whisper White
  • Using Night of Navy ink, stamp the sentiment
  • Adhere the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon
  • Use dimensionals (I was very generous—using at least 10) to “pop” the piece up onto the Designer Series Paper.
  • Adhere panel to white base.
  • Cut a ½-inch circle from Pineapple Punch card stock and adhere to center of daisy

Super easy and super fun!

Spring is in the Air!

Stampin' Up! Daisy Punch and Fable Friends Stamp Set

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Punch and Fable Friends Stamp Set

Hello Stampers!

As the day begins in Nebraska, the birds are chirping, and the trees are budding. It’s definitely spring, and we celebrate Easter this weekend.

I’m sharing a super cute card I CASEd (in case you haven’t heard this before, it means: Copy and Share Everything) from Fun with Stamping.

The bunny ears are created using Stampin’ Up!’s Daisy Punch. I punched the flowers in the colors that coordinate with the Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist and Highland Heather). I then used snips to cut the daisy in half and trimmed away the extra petals.

The sentiment comes from the Fable Friends stamp set, and you could easily replace “Happy Spring” with “Easter Blessings.”

Good news on two fronts: both the Daisy Punch and the Fable Friends stamp set will be available in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. However, the awesome Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper will be retiring. So, if you love that, think about purchasing it sooner rather than later before it’s gone

Retiring Items

This is the time of year Stampin’ Up! releases the list of items that will be retiring to make way for new and fun products. With that said, some others need to go. Perhaps the best way for you to see this list is to go directly to my online store and peruse the list. Links are below. Just let me know if you have questions. Something to note: You might see a lot of stamp sets on the list. SU! is retiring the format of the stamp – wood and clear mount – and replacing them with the cling mount.

Stamping Made Easy!

Stampin' Up! #simplestamping

Stampin’ Up! #simplestamping

Hello Stampers!

When I invite someone new to stamp with me, I hear them say, “Oh, I can’t do that. I’m not crafty!”

To which I reply: “Are you breathing? If so, I can teach you how to use rubber stamps, ink, and paper to create a handmade card.” (I stole this from another demonstrator years ago.)

During the last year, I’ve had to opportunity to introduce a lot of people – both male and female – to the art of rubber stamping. I joined a networking organization, and my presentation involves a hands-on stamping opportunity.

This is one of the cards we created at a recent meeting. It really speaks to Stampin’ Up!’s challenge of #simplestamping. It’s just rubber stamps, ink, and paper. I used Stampin’ Up!’s note cards and envelopes, the retiring In Colors of Fresh Fig and Powder Pink as well as the Sheltering Tree and Birthday Cheer stamp sets. But it goes together quickly; it’s eye-catching; and it will bless someone’s day. What could be better than that?

I’d love to introduce you to the fun of creating with rubber stamps. Give me a call or shoot me an email, and let’s get a date on the calendar.

Thanks for stopping by today!

April Showers Bring May Flowers!

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight/#143669/$17

Hello Stampers!

April showers bring May flowers! That’s the old saying, right? So, it’s nearly time for getting those flowers started! And, those seeds need some cute packaging.

Stampin’ Up!’s Daisy Delight Bundle provides the perfect product to create this springtime “treat” holder.

I started with a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock measuring 6 inches x 3 ¾- inches. I scored it at 3 inches, folded it in half, and stapled the side together. I then adhered a piece of 2 ¾-inch by 3 ½-inch square of Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to the front.

I stamped the daisy image twice in Pineapple Punch ink onto Pineapple Punch card stock and then punched it with the Daisy Punch. With a glue dot, I layered the daisies together to create a flower and popped it up on the front of the packet. I topped it off with a Gold Faceted Gem Rhinestone.

So easy to create and so cute to give!

Simple Stamping for Baby

Stampin' Up! #simplestamping, Little Elephant

#simplestamping for baby

Hello Stampers!

With all of Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating stamps, ink, paper, and embellishments, it’s easy to create beautiful cards. But there are times when you need a quick and simple card.

Here, I’ve created a #simplestamping card. Just rubber stamps, ink, paper, and a touch of ribbon.

I’ve used the Little Elephant stamp set and the coordinating colors of Night of Navy and Smoky Slate and added the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon.

See the photos at the end of this post for a list of the products I used to create this card.
