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.

I'm off to go play with my puppy :)

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!

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 :)

A good friend of mine came across a birthday die set in her stash and thought of me :) She offered to borrow me the die set so I could make this months cards. Here are the cards I created.

Thank you, Janice, for thinking of me when you saw these cute dies. I LOVED playing with them!

 I am now going to go out for a walk and deliver our neighborhood newsletters.

Have a great week everyone!

Stampin UP March sketch challenge

It's that time again. I am off to club night tonight. Charlene likes to send out a sketch challenge each month and this month our challenge comes from
The happy stampers weekly blog hop.


Here is my take on the card sketch challenge

I didn't clean my desk after making the birthday cards (oops) so I just continued to use what I had out and created this card. I am in love with that wild flower! I know I previously called it a flowering branch but either way it's a keeper! so pretty.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Birthday Club March 2017

Oh, I had fun making these cards. I even kept one for myself :)

Here is the list of items that I used:

Background stamp came from timeless textures.

Flowering branch came from Morning Meadow
I punched out the little flowers with the petite flower punch

Butterflies came from Papillon Potpourri stamp set. I punched out the small butterflies but hand cut the larger one.

Sentiment frame comes from Chalk talk and then cut out using the chalk talk framelits. The sentiment came from party pants then punched out using the 1 3/8 circle punch.

The ink colours that I used were Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, Blushing Bride, and Calypso Coral.
I also used the Wink of Stella on the butterflies. Hard to tell in the photo but looks great to the naked eye :)

Have a great evening everyone!

Birthday club January and February 2017

I know I posted the January cards not long ago but I wanted to post it together with the Feb cards

For the month of January, I made four cards one I kept. Each one is a little different. Love the look of these.

Shaker cards! love how they turned out. I love jars so when I saw this stamp and die set I knew I had to get it. Glad I did.

I needed to make one more birthday card for a friend of mine. She just happens to be in the same club just a different group.

As I was moving my craft room back upstairs I came across a stamp set, punch and embossing folder that I have never used or at least don't remember using! The stamp set is called Mosaic Madness and there is a punch available to go with it. The embossing folder is the Modern Mosaic. What a wonderful set to play with! I also used a stamp from the stamp set called Timeless Textures and the sentiment is from a set called Party pants.

It was great to take a break from moving stuff and make this card. Love how it turned out.

Have a great week!
