DAISY’S ALL IN A ROW

Hi and welcome to today’s line-up of daisies.  The Daisy Punch is now available so I thought showing off this card with the Daisy Delight Bundle would be perfect to brighten your Friday.

The Delightful Daisy Designer series paper has some pretty happy designs in it and this design is just perfect for this card.

I did do some “fussy” cutting for the leaves so they could be popped in the lineup.  And, I stamped and cut out the flower centres so they could be popped up on the flowers as well.

If you wanted to you could change the greeting to another to fit the occasion.

Here’s the list of products.  The Daisy Delight Bundle would be the perfect addition to your collection!

COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE!

Ah, coffee!  What a great way to wake up to the day!  Today’s card shows the perfect cup of coffee to help you wake up and get on with your day.

If you look closely, you can see the White Perfect Accents that I added to look like foam.

Here’s the full list of products for you.

QUIRKY CRITTERS FROM STAMPIN’ UP!

Hi.  Today’s share was created with the Quirky Critters stamp set and I chose to use the image of this cute little Quail.

Cute for sure, don’t you think?  I chose to use an Aqua Painter to colour this little cutie and added the piece behind the image from our new Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  The soft sky blue works beautifully to help set off that little bird.  I’m also playing along with The Paper Players challenge this week.  We are use create a Clean-and-Simple card with a feathered friend image so the quail was the natural choice.

Here’s the full list of products used.

NO BONES ABOUT IT

Welcome to a traditional twist on a kid’s card that I showed you the other day.

The first card was created with pinks (see it here)but sometimes going “traditional” makes for a really cute card too.

I used a combination of blues to make this cutie for my great-nephew.  Since this set is a 2-step stamping set, he bones were stamped with Dapper Denim and then over-stamped with Soft Sky.  Of course I used some of our new InColors for the different leaves.

Here’s the list of products for you.

The No Bones about It stamp set is so very cute and perfect for the dinosaur lover, give it a try yourself and Happy Stamping!

ONE LOVELY ROSE JUST FOR YOU

Happy Monday to you and what better way to start a new week than with one lovely rose!  This card was made with the Graceful Garden stamp set and I love the rose images.

It’s perfect for watercolouring so I brought out our Watercolor Pencils and Aqua Painters to get just the right touches in that lovely rose.  TIP:  Use our Shimmery White paper when watercolouring.  It won’t pill while you’re blending the colours.

Notice that interesting layout?  It’s from Freshly Made Sketches and was fun to put together with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.  The background looked a little too bare for me so I added that trellis image from the Graceful Garden stamp set to finish things off.  Perfect!

Here’s the sketch for you – you might want to give it a try yourself.

Here is the list of products that I used.

A BEVY OF DINOSAURS

Hi and today’s card “case’s” an idea from the new catalogue that features a “bevy of dinosaurs”!

Is “bevy” the right word?  Not sure but I like it and this card was a hit a card class on Tuesday.  We used most of the new InColors to create it – so much fun!  You can find the idea on page 109, so go ahead and use these ideas to create your own cards.  To change up this one, just use different colours.

Here’s the full list of products that we used.

COLOURING IS SO VERY THERAPEUTIC

Do you like to colour?  I find it very therapeutic and really enjoyed colouring these two pretty birds from the new Hostess set, Feathery Friends(144307CM 144032WM).

The beauty of colouring is that you can use any colours that you want to make the images your very own!  This new Hostess set would be perfect for you!

We will be away for a family holiday in July, but I’ll be back in August and ready to book your Stamping Party.  Make sure to check my calendar and Contact Me to book a date.  I’d love to stamp with you.

Here is the full list of products that I used.  I needed a lot of Stampin’ Write Markers to colour those two cuties!

IN THE GARDEN

Tis the season to spend time in the garden and I’m sure that lots of you have been.  So today’s card shows a beautiful tree covered in blossoms!

Of course, who wouldn’t want to sit under that tree enjoying the sunshine and smell of the blooms!  I created this card to play along with the SUO Challenge to celebrate “what’s out in the garden” and I couldn’t think of anything nicer than sitting under that beautiful tree.

TIP:  To add the touches of green, use a Sponge Dauber to add the colour right onto the stamp.  Then just stamp over the blossoms!

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

I hope that you are enjoying time out in your garden – Happy Stamping!

GETTING READY FOR ALL THOSE BIRTHDAYS

Hi, today I’m posting one of the birthday cards that we will be making tonight.  There are a lot of birthdays coming up in my family so I really like to have cards ready to send.

The Paper Players posted a great Color Challenge which includes using Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and the new InColor, Lemon Lime Twist.  I really love this new lemon lime so used a piece from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper for the pop on the side.

Those pretty yellow flowers are from the stamp set that’s in the Soft Sayings card kit.  Yes, I fussy cut the flowers and tiny leaves with Paper Snips so they could be popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the greeting square.  I’m loving the softness of this card and have just the person in mind to send it to.

Here’s the list of products for you.

HAPPY 150TH BIRTHDAY CANADA

On July 1st we in Canada, will be celebrating our country’s 150th Birthday!  Yes, Canada is 150 years young and there are lots of celebrations planned around the country.

I decided to use the Colorful Seasons Bundle to create a special card for my own celebration of this special time!

The maple leaf dies in the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits were just crying out to be used so I followed along with the Freshly Made Sketches 291 layout to create this pretty card.

 Here’s the full list of products that I used.  The Thick Whisper White cardstock worked perfectly.  If you need to stock up yourself, just click on the picture to go directly to my online store.
