A DAISY IN WINTER

OK, are you just as tired of these cold winter days as I am?  I decided to get a jump of the blooming season and created the first daisy for the coming season!  A few flowers sure help to warm up the day!

Pineapple punch is such a happy colour, so I stamped the daisy image and then cut it out with the matching Daisy Punch(143713).

The Tea Room specialty designer series paper adds just the right touch of spring flowers too!

Here’s the full list of products used for you.

TIME FOR A BALMY WEDDING

Wedding season is always here and today’s card takes us to a balmy wedding celebration.

I kept this very simple and let that wonderful sentiment be the stand out on this card.  Of course weddings are all about love so why not a groups of hearts sprinkled across the card front!  If you look closely, you will see that I added a few of the Heart Epoxy droplets to highlight a few of those balmy hearts.  Those droplets fit perfectly over the hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits die.  It’s this one…..

HAPPY DAY TO YOU CUPCAKE

I thought that it would be a good idea to start off the week with something sweet and this yummy cupcake should work just fine!

This card was created with the Hello Cupcake photopolymer stamp set(149714), a Free choice from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

It looks great with the Happy Birthday Thinlits dies and I took a couple of extra steps to make that greeting stand out.  First, I used the Simple Stripes Embossing folder on a piece of Whisper White cardstock(inserted on an angle) to add texture and then cut out the greeting.  Then, I used two pieces of our Thick Whisper White cardstock to cut two more greeting.  Then all of the greeting layers were adhered together using the Fin-Tip Glue pen.

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

FOR MY VALENTINES

There’s nothing like giving the gift of chocolate to one’s valentines and adding a fancy gift tag to that delicious gift!

These little beauties were created with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and the beautiful All My Love designer series paper.  And, I just couldn’t resist adding that touch of shimmer with a Lovely Lipstick Foil heart!

TIP:  When using the Tag Topper Scalloped Punch, cut the cardstock to 2-15/16 wide –  it will fit into the punch a little easier.

The Paper Players “Love is in the Air” theme made it easy to create these tags.

TIP 2:  The Thinlit Die I used has a tiny heart at the bottom of the die, so I used the Take Your Pick tool to add it to that pretty label.  When using this die, make a note of that tiny heart so you can use it on your own project.

Here’s the list of products used.

BUTTERFLIES AND SMILES

There’s nothing like a few butterflies to bring smiles to one’s face, don’t you think?  Today’s card has a definite spring feel to it with those pretty butterflies!

I’m really enjoying the Floral Romance Specialty designer paper that adds to the spring feel for this card.  That perfect sentiment is compliments of the Eastern Beauty stamp set – who doesn’t smile for butterflies!

The layout for this card is from the new challenge from CAS(E) this sketch which helps to show off all of these lovely new products!

GEARED UP CLASSIC

From flowers to gears, today’s card highlights the beauty of using Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and accessories!

This “you’re a Classic” card was created with the Geared Up Garage Cling Bundle (150610) .

I wanted the gears to stand out so first embossed the Basic Gray cardstock with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, then cut them out with the proper thinlit die.  To give them a little more depth I used a Stampin’ Sponge to add a little of the Whisper White craft ink and then glued them down with our excellent Fine-Tip Glue pen.

Here’s the list of products used. See anything you need?  Just click on the picture to go directly to my Online Store!

MANY LOVELY ROSES WISHING FOR SPRING

Me and these many lovely roses are very fervently wishing for spring!  One of the best things about having a stamping business is that you can create your own season any time you want!  All it takes is some cardstock, ink and a great stamp set like the Climbing Roses Cling Bundle.

I used the Petal Pink and Shaded Spruce combo Stampin’ Blends to colour those little beauties and cut them out with the matching thinlit die.  Don’t they look so pretty sitting on that trellis and label?  I used a combination of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots to arrange them.

This would make a great Valentine’s card but my thoughts when making it were for an anniversary or wedding!  It’s perfect for either one!

DARLING BABY WITH FABLE FRIENDS CLING STAMP SET

Yay, it’s Friday and todays card makes use of the Fable Friends Cling Stamp set for a darling baby card.

I love that little bunny and the paper-pieced coat!  Because this card is for a new baby’s arrival I felt that the bright yellow of PineappIe Punch would be the perfect background.  The simple gingham designs added just the right touch too!  I needed a card layout for this simple and bright card and Freshly Made Sketches came to the rescue.

TIP:  Paper-piecing is easy – just stamp the part of the image you want to piece onto your chosen piece of designer paper and cut it out with our fabulous Paper Snips.

Here’s the full list of products used.

Wishing you a great weekend and make sure to get some stamping done!

HOME TO ROOST – A SALE-A-BRATION SET

Today is the day – I’ve finally had a chance to create with the Home to Roost Sale-A-Bration set!  I was drawn to the rooster image so went to town with colouring this card.

I used quite a selection of Stampin’ Blends for the rooster – they can be very colourful after all!  Of course I needed a card sketch to help with the layout and The Paper Players posted the perfect one.

I haven’t finished with this handsome rooster so make sure keep an eye out for some more ideas.

The long list of products used is below.
