Stampin’ Up! Daisy Garden Hello

Whoa – we are having some beautiful days here on the East Coast. Yes, full of pollen too. And the pine trees have not begun their pollen-sharing. For those who suffer from allergies, this is not a good time of year. For those of us who don’t, the temps are perfect for the spring floral display God provides. Today’s card was inspired in part by the clematis in bloom in the front of our home – purple. The Daisy Garden stamp set is just beautiful – here’s the card.

Daisy Garden Hello

I’ve used several Stampin’ Blends to color the flowers: Fresh Freesia, Rich Razzleberry and the centers Pale Papaya. For the leaves & stems I used Granny Apple Green, Old Olive and Soft Succulent. The Soft Succulent adds more contrast and a depth to the leaves that I really like – and it was just a happenstance of playing around :).

The Daisy Garden stamp was stamped on a Basic White panel (3 3/4 x 5) in Memento Black ink, then colored as mentioned above. After coloring, I adhered the panel to a slightly larger piece of Fresh Freesia (3 7/8 x 5 1/8), then wrapped the Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent around it and tied a bow. Gosh, this ribbon is just heaven to work with… ties a perfect bow every time. I added a glue dot under the knot to hold it in place.

The sentiment comes from the Sweet As A Peach stamp set and was stamped on a Basic White 1/2″ strip in Fresh Freesia. I trimmed the one end as you see and left the other end straight. I added three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Fresh Freesia for a bit of sparkle and mounted it with dimensionals and over the ribbon. This panel was put on dimensionals and added to the Thick Basic White card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) and the card front was done.

Daisy Garden Hello

For the inside I brought out a coordinating stamp set called Daisy Lane. While it is not new, it is in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and perfect for single daisies. Again I stamped these is Memento Black in on a Basic White panel (3 3/4 x 5) and colored them as before – Fresh Freesia, Rich Razzleberry and Pale Papaya for the centers. This was attached to another piece of Fresh Freesia 3(3 7/8 x 5 1/8) with liquid glue then added to the inside of the card and voila – card is complete!

For the envelope I stamped the same simple daisy on the front of the envelope and all over the flap but did not color them – and guess what – no photo! Bummer… What took longest on this card was the coloring, but it’s just so relaxing for me that it didn’t really matter. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane

We are beginning to have longer days here on the East Coast and some warmer days as well. Our Helebores are budding, there are a couple of purple crocus showing and some little white flowers whose name I forget. These temps have inspired me to create something bright and colorful. I’ve used the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinated Flowers for Every Season DSP and both Medium and Large Daisy Punches. Let’s take a peek…

Daisy Lane Fun Fold

Preparation:

  • Card base is Misty Moonlight 4 1/4 x 11, trim off 1 3/4 from one end, then score 1 7/8 from each end. Reserve the removed piece for the vertical front panel.
  • DSP panels Flowers for Every Season DSP (2) 1 3/4 x 4 1/8 and (1) 1 5/8 x 4 1/8 + (1) 4 1/8 x 5 3/8; (2) coordinating pieces 1 5/8 x 4 1/8; (1) 1 1/2 x 4
  • Basic White (inside panel) 4 x 5 1/4 + enough for daisies: (3) medium , (2) large
  • Gather inks: Night of Navy, Just Jade, So Saffron, and Blushing Bride
  • Embellishment: Gilded Gems

How to:

  • Adhere the appropriate two DSP pieces together for each panel using liquid glue, then adhere to the card stock pieces. Does that make sense? It seems obvious to me but let’s see if I can make it more clear: (2) 1 5/8 x 4 to (2) 1 3/4 x 4 1/8 and (1) 1 1/2 x 4 to the (1) 1 5/8 x 4 1/8. This last piece is adhered to the Misty Moonlight reserve panel 1 3/4 x 4 1/4. The others are adhered to the card base folded over panels. Yes, I think you get it!
  • Adhere this last panel to the right and just to the bottom portion of the fold-over. (If you adhere it to the top and bottom it will not open!!!)
  • Stamp the Basic White panel using the Stamparatus and Night of Navy ink, with the sentiment, realizing that the open section is what you want to see. I used the Daisy Lane stamp set for the sentiment. Now stamp the leaf in Just Jade ink in various places around the edge, keeping in mind what ism going to be seen when the card is closed (just the sentiment!). Adhere the Basic White panel to the slightly larger DSP panel and then into the inside of the card and wow- nearly done…
  • Stamp the daisies… for the Medium daisy – stamp in So Saffron ink three (3) times, stamping off each time, then punch using the Medium Daisy Punch. Curl the petals using a bone folder, then adhere together with liquid glue, off-setting the petals. Stamp the larger daisy with Blushing Bride ink, stamping off at least once, maybe twice, then punch with the Large Daisy Punch. Curl the petals as before then adhere together with liquid glue. Attach to the card as shown, with liquid glue. Add Gilded Gems to the centers of the daisies.
  • Voila – the card is done!
Daisy Lane Fun Fold, inside

Now for the envelope… I used what DSP pieces were left over for the envelope flap, adhering with liquid glue and trimming to fit. Stamp the leaf along the bottom of the envelope and some on the edge of the envelope using the same Just Jade ink. Adn yep – done, done, done!

Daisy Lane Fun Fold

Fun card… bright and cheery. If you so desired you could add a Basic White panel on the back to do some writing, cuz there isn’t much space to say much. Depends on the recipient, right?

SU! Daisy Delight – Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone – I haven’t posted in a couple of days… lost a dear friend to complications of Covid 19 and well, it just stinks… know what I mean? She was misdiagnosed initially and therefore didn’t get any treatment for longer than necessary. And that’s disappointing on many fronts. She was a gentle soul.

The card today is being sent to her family. Besides being church buddies, we also belonged to a women’s organization together. This card symbolizes some of that organization. And I find the card uplifting and hope the family does as well.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

It starts with a panel of Whisper White and I have adhered a strip of Subtles 6×6 DSP in So Saffron. On either side I have used the Ornate Borders Dies to die cut a beautiful trim, again from So Saffron, which also is adhered to the Whisper White panel with liquid glue. I then ran this entire panel through the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I haven’t done this before – where I added layers to a card front and ran it all through an embossing folder, but I love the look! You may see this again in the near future 🙂

Next I took a piece of the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo pack (Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon) and adhered it with Stampin’ Seal, right through the middle of the DSP strip. Then I added a length of the 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee over that. This was attached with Stampin Seal in the back only. Then I added the daisy which was stamped from the Daisy Lane stamp set on Whisper White with So Saffron ink. I stamped twice and punched them both with the Daisy Punch. I curled the petals downward using a gentle touch with the bone folder. These were layered together with liquid glue, then two dimensionals together on the back and onto the card front. The center of the daisy got these awesome Beaded Pearls that add a really finished and elegant touch. I made a bow from the same 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot.

Daisy Lane – Sympathy

The sentiment comes from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and was stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White and fussy cut. I cut down several dimensionals into strips and adhered them to the back of the sentiment and added it to the card front. This entire Whisper White panel was adhered to a slightly larger panel of So Saffron card stock. Dimensionals were added to it and on it went to the Thick Whisper White card base.

For the inside I stamped the large daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in So Saffron, stamping off at least once, onto the center of the Whisper White panel. Right on top of that I stamped the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Memento Black ink. This Whisper White panel was adhered to another piece of So Saffron with liquid glue then onto the inside of the card base. And voila – the card was complete!

Daisy Lane – Sympathy
inside

For the envelope I took a piece of So Saffron cs and ran it through the Ornate Flowers 3D Embossing Folder then added it to the envelope flap. For the envelope front I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in stamped off once So Saffron ink. Done, done. AND ready to be sent to my friends family.

SU! Daisy Lane, Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

I’m excited no share it with you… it uses some products from last years catalog and some from this years 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Daisy Lane stamp set
Large and Medium Daisy Punch
Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP
#1

Bright, cheerful, it is just F-U-N. Created on the Note Cards/ Envelopes pack, this card is smaller than a regular size card. Finished it measures 3 1/2 x 5, a perfect size.

  • Layer Magenta Madness 3 3/8 x 4 7/8 onto the note card front
  • Layer the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 1/4 x 4 3/4
  • Layer one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP, but on the white side. Adhere with Stampin Seal
  • Stamp two large daisies with Bumblebee from the Daisy Lane stamp set and punch with the large daisy punch.
  • Do the same with the Medium daisy: stamp 2 in Bumblebee, punch 2

  • Cut Specialty Paper with two glue dots. Put Basic Pearls in the center ~ I used five

The best part about this card is that the inside could be absolutely anything you wanted it to be: get well, thinking of you, you got this, just about anything. Since a shower card was requested, that’s what I did… made it a shower card.

Under My Umbrella stamp set
#2

Cute, right?

  • Stamp the umbrella in Magenta Madness.
  • Stamp the flowers in Bumblebee
  • Now go back and stamp the sentiment

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane, Medium Daisy Punch and Garden Lane DSP

Todays card features the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, the Medium Daisy punch and the Garden Lane DSP. The soft colors used give an element of comfort and elegance, and perfect for a sympathy card.

With yesterdays beautiful weather I did NOT work on my craft room – I worked (played) in the yard, first picking up the branches down from the couple of days worth of storms, nothing big thank goodness. Then the clippers came out to cut back some overgrowing bushes, some minor trim on hydrangea and holly shaping, When I cleared the area of leaves a few weeks ago, I had taken down fencing that keeps the dog out of the flower beds. (He really likes to lie on the cool plants in the heat of summer!) I got several of those back in position. After two hours of work, it was time for a break. That’s when I created this card, still in the confusion and messiness of an incomplete craft room cleanup.

Medium Daisy punch and Garden Lane DSP

Here are the deets:

  • Thick Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
  • So Very Vellum , an item free from the SAB catalogue 4 x 5 1/4
  • Garden Lane DSP 2 5/8 x 3 7/8

 

  • With Soft Seafoam ink, stamp the Medium daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set 3 times on a scrap of Whisper White cs. Punch out with the Medium Daisy punch. Curl the edges inward gently using your bone folder. Adhere together with liquid glue.
  • Wrap a length of Mint Macaron 1/8″ ribbon around the DSP and tie a bow, adhering with a glue dot under the bow.
  • Attach the Daisies with two dimensionals layered together, to the DSP, and place on the wrapped ribbon. This additionally helps hold the ribbon in place. Add a Gold Faceted Gem to the daisy center.
  • Adhere the Garden Lane DSP to the So Very Vellum with several dimensionals, and glue this in place on the Thick Whisper White using liquid glue. Your card front is complete.

 

  • TIP… Use liquid glue only where you can see the DSP as the glue will show through if it goes outside this area!

The inside…

Woven Heirlooms inside of card

  • Stamp the sentiment using Mint Macaron ink and the Woven Heirlooms stamp set on a pice of Whisper White cs 4 x 5 1/4.  L.O.V.E. this script!
  • Adhere to the inside of the card with liquid glue. Inside done!

The envelope…

  • Adhere a 2 1/4 x 6 piece of the Garden Lane DSP to the envelope flap and your card is complete.

Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils Card and Gift Bag

My card today uses the stunning Stampin’ Up! Flowering Foils papers that can be earned with a $50 order. It also uses Daisy Lane Stamp set, Around the Corner stamp set, Beautiful Bouquet stamp set, the Medium Daisy punch and the Bouquet Bunch dies.Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? But the card was super fun and easy to create. Here it is…

Isn’t this fun? I really, really like it. This Flowering Foils paper has some body to it, was easy to work with and is stunning in person. Pictures really does not do it justice. My intension was to make a masculine card but once I got started, well, you see what happened. It isn’t masculine at all!

Here are the details:

  • Smokey Slate card stock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Blueberry Bushel cut to 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Flowering Foils cut to 4 1/2″ x 3″

So how did I get this wonderful ombre effect? By using a brush roller! Using the roller, roll over the ink pad GOING IN ONE DIRECTION ONLY, NOT BACK AND FORTH. This allows the ink to cover the entire roller, not just sections of it. Put roller to paper starting at the top of the foils paper and moving downward. I did not go to the end of the piece as I wanted a gradient color. Continue this process until it’s to the depth of shade desired. Allow to dry a few minutes then buff lightly with a soft cloth to remove ink from the foil design. This is a bit of a messy process as it gets ink on your hands during the handling and holding of the paper. Just make certain the ink on your hands is dry before handling other papers!

  • Adhere the Flowering Foils piece to the Blueberry Bushel using liquid glue. Wrap braided linen thread around these two pieces and tie in a knot
  • Using the Daisy Lane stamp set stamp three daisies on Whisper White card stock and punch out with the Medium Daisy punch. Curl the petals by running a bone folder over the petals and lifting them. Adhere daisies together with glue dots. Adhere over the ribbon with a dimensional. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem in the daisy center.
  • Stamp the “for you” using Blueberry Bushel ink and the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set onto a Whisper White scrap. Cut out using the Bouquet Bunch dies. Put a dimensional on the back, slip a length of linen thread through the hole and tie in a knot to the braided linen ribbon.
  • Adhere all this with dimenionals to the Smokey Slate cs and the card front is complete!

This card is for a friend who will be running a convention in a couple of months, and that’s why the sentiment on the inside. Here it is…

  • Blueberry Bushel 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Whisper White 4 1/2″ x 3″
  • Stamp the sentiment with Blueberry Bushel ink
  • Add a Noble Rhinestone jewel and the card is complete.

The envelope…

  • The envelope got the same treatment on the flap, using a piece of the Flowering Foils cut 2 1/4″ x 6″, adhering with liquid glue and trimming to size.
  • On the envelope front I stamped the sentiment from Around the Corner stamp set in Blueberry Bushel. Since this card will be hand delivered, I adhered five jewels from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack

I love this card – did I say that already? Hope you do as well. Now – on with the matching gift bag..

 

  • Cut a piece of Flowering Foils paper 6″ x 12″. Create the ombre effect as described above.
  • Score on the long side 1 1/2″, 5 3/4″, 7 1/4″ and 11 1/2″.
  • With the ombre on the right, score on the short side 1 1/2″
  • Burnish all score lines.
  • Remove the small 1/2″ section below the 1 1/2″ score line. Adhere Tear n’ Tape to the long 1/2″ section
  • Cut up to the 1 1/2″ score line
  • Fold over the bag to the Tear n’ Tape; fold up the bottom and adhere with Tear n’ Tape
  • Pinch top; Wrap a length of Braided Linen Ribbon around the bag, tie in a bow
  • Stamp the ‘Smile’ sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blueberry Bushel. Punch out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Add you own ‘scrolly’ around the edge. Using the Tailored Tag Punch , punch another from Blueberry Bushel cs and cut in half. Adhere the white punched piece to the two sections of Blueberry Bushel creating an even border. Adhere with dimensionals to the bag. DONE!
  • I want to give credit to Pootles for the wonderful video on YouTube that inspired this fun set. Thank you!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you liked this fun set. Remember this Flowering Foils paper is available during the rest of Sale-a-bration (Mar 31!) with a $50 order. In other words it;s a FREE ITEM!

May you have a beautiful day. Make someone happy by sending them a handmade card.

 

 

Daisy Lane, …..Perennial Essence DSP

The card: the base is thick Whisper White: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; next layer is also thick Whisper White cut at 4 x 5 1/4. The two diagonal pieces are Perennial Essence DSP cut at 7/8″, layered on a strip of Gorgeous Grape. The string is not a SU! Product (shame on me!) but coordinates so well I just had to use it. The strings were adhered on the back with snail then taped over it once they were as I wanted them. On my desk and having laid around for a while :o) were these two stunning daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set, stamped in Highland Heather and punched with their coordinating punches. The embellishment (faceted gems  for the daisy was colored with Melon Mango stampin blends.

The butterflies come from the Beauty Abounds stamp set. They were stamped in Memento black and colored with SU! Blends: Dark Purple ePosy, Light Rich Razzleberry and Dark Mango Melody. This whole front was adhered to the thick Whisper White card base with lots of dimensionals.

The envelope uses more of the Perennial Essence card stock for the flap and more stamps from Beauty Abounds. The “blobs” are supposed to be nectar from the flowers that the butterfly is going after :o) and was stamped with So Saffron. The butterfly was again colored in using Mango Melody.

Thanks for stopping by. May you enjoy the day wherever you are. Create. Inspire. Share.
