Daisy Lane

Daisy Lane
I absolutely love daisies and now that Stampin' up has Daisy and Medium Daisy punches, it's double the fun. I enjoyed making this card for a wonderful woman who loves flowers and brings sunshine to so many lives. The lush Daffodil Delight paired with Highland Heather made a perfect summer Hello card. 
The base of the card is Whisper White Thick cardstock with a second layer in Daffodil Delight topped with another Whisper White layer. Then I cut the frame out of Daffodil Delight cardstock using Layering Squares Dies and then embossed the frame with the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the daisy images with Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather and then punched them out with the Daisy and Medium Daisy punches. The adorable squirrel holding a daisy came from the Fable Friends stamp set and was colored in using Stampin' Blends in Light and Dark Smoky Slate and Light and Dark Daffodil Delight. The squirrel was cut out using Layering Ovals dies. The sent…

Free as a Bird

Free as a Bird
I love these sweet birds in Free as a Bird stamp set! And the coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) Bird Ballad guides card makers in how to color the birds using Stampin' Blends. I stayed within just a few color choices to keep it a relatively simple card to make.

The card base is Pool Party cardstock which has been embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder for a simple textured look. A small strip of Bird Ballad Designers Series Paper provides a nice complement to the birds on the branch. Stitched Nested Labels Dies were used to cut out the birds - Whisper White layered on Petal Pink cardstock. Stampin' Blends in Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Soft Suede were used to color in the birds. The sentiment Just For You was stamped with Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Ink Pad and comes from the Dear Doily stamp set.

This is a versatile set that can be used for so many occasions. I have another post coming with these adorable birds used with Stitched Lace dies. I'…

Back On Your Feet

Back On Your Feet  Wobbly Turtle Fun
Cuteness overload! Oh what fun it was to make this card, though I made it for two people struggling with pneumonia and a stay in the hospital, so the reason I had to make the card wasn't good, but at least the card will certainly add a little brightness to their days! 
This turtle not only looks adorable, but he has an action wobble spring behind him, so he wobbles, accentuating the cuteness! To make this card was quite easy. I started with a Whisper White Thick card base with the second layer in Granny Apple Green. I added a strip of Brights 6x6 Designer Series Paper (Retired - 2018-2019) in Granny Apple Green.  I tied Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon to the base, adhering it to the back of the second layer of cardstock before adhering the whole panel the card base. 
The sentiment "Hope you're back on your feet soon" was stamped with Memento ink and punched out with the Story Label Punch and Gingham Gala Sequins were app…

Woven Heirlooms

Woven Heirlooms Birthday Card
One of my dearest friends had her birthday recently, and I wanted to make a really special card for this milestone birthday of hers. She loves purple, and though this patterned paper is a Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper that is retired, I knew she would love it, so I used it. I thoroughly enjoy using all my Stampin' Up products despite whether they are retired or not, and I think it shows the company's thoughtfulness in how their products are made to go together year after year despite when someone begins using the products. 
To begin, I used Mossy Meadow cardstock as my base and then added a layer of Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I then added the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). But the star of the show is the Stampin Cut and Emboss Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folder. The stamped image came from Butterfly Wishes and the sentiment came from a recently retired set called Part of My Story, which I embossed wi…
