The new Daisy Delight bundle and our new In Colours 2017-2019

I have been having fun playing with my new Daisy Delight bundle from Stampin ' up along with the new five incolours! oh and I love that brick wall textured impression folder!


here is the recipe:

Start with an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 thick whisper white cardstock. Score at 4 1/4 then fold over. This is your card base.

2nd layer is your choice of in colour cardstock that measures 5 1/4 x 4

Your next layer will be the whisper white CS. I precut mine leaving about 1 ½” from the top right corner then cut however much of a diagonal you would like.

Emboss your bottom piece using the brick embossing folder.

Cut three strips of paper that measure about ½” wide. Two strips are from the dsp pack and one strip from the in colour CS.

Line up your top and bottom piece and attach your strips cutting the overhang when done.
Attach to your second layer.

Stamp two daisies onto whisper white CS using Crushed Curry ink, then punch out using your daisy punch.

Using your ½” punch, punch out your circle from the gold glimmer paper. Then glue to center of one daisy.
Using stampin’ dimensionals layer your daisy, then attach to card using another dimensional.

Stamp the speckles using the stamp from Timeless Textures onto your card front with Crushed Curry ink.

Stamp Thank You with your co ordinating ink.

Still learning to write up the instructions so I am hoping you can understand them. If not send me a message and I will love to help you out.

Herringbone Quilted Card

Yes, you read that correctly lol I needed to make a birthday card for one of my sisters and I know that she loves quilts. I decided to go onto pinterest and look around. I always hesitate or think twice before going on to pinterest cause I know that I will be there for hrs!. I settled on the herringbone technique and LOVE it. So easy and fun to do.

Here is the finished card



I had used some beautiful but older designer series paper from Stampin up! called  Everyday Enchantment.

I really did not want to take away from the pattern so I opted for a small sentiment that way I could still see the beautiful paper at work. The stamped sentiment on the front of the card came from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
And yes, I used two of the retired punches, word window, and the modern label. I also used a white opaque pen to make the faux stitches!


 The inside stamped sentiment came from a retired hostess set called Happy Birthday Everyone (love this set).

I am sure she will love this card. She really is an amazing woman :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

method and a tip:

I did not really measure the strips they were just kind of random widths.
I had some 2" wide double sided tape laying around so I stuck that onto a piece of  3 3/4 x 5 " piece of cardstock then laid the strips onto the tape.

TIP: Once I had all my strips stuck down and trimmed I turned it over onto an old mouse pad and using a bone folder I burnished on the back. This helped seal all the edges and made a smooth look.
I then mounted it onto a 5 1/4x4" piece of Calypso Coral cardstock.
Then mounted it onto my Very Vanilla cardbase.

Hope you try it out. It really was fun to make.

Birthday club June and July 2017

Hello, everyone!

Oh boy! this was the first time that I was a little late in sending out the birthday cards.  Feeling bad about that so I decided that while I was making the birthday cards for June I should make the ones for July!

I had to mail these cards so I was concerned about the thickness. I decided to leave the front of the cards simple. It's the inside of the card that is the FUN part! Love how these pop out cards turned out. There were 6 cards in June.








And here are two of the four cards that I had made for the July Birthdays. I couldn't decide if I liked the bottom of the flower up or to use it as more leaves, so I did both HA!



Enjoy the rest of the week!
Donna

PS   I forgot to mention that after taking the photos I realized I had forgotten to add bows to the balloons, which I did do before sending them off :)
