Hi Stampers

I was invited to do the September weekly Blog post for the Crafty Cupcakes Design Team, along with Michelle of Craft-A-Therapy. You can see her blog HERE
We will be using the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Punch during September

Welcome to Week 3 

This week I have made a Birthday Card using the Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper (DSP) mounted onto Wisteria Wonder Cardstock.

Below are the products used for this card

 I have added layered matts of DSP and Whisper White and then punched out 3 different patterns of co-ordinating DSP in the Daisy punch and assembled the daisy to attach to the card front. 
1 layer of DSP and 1 of Whisper White have been punched out with the Everyday Label Punch to make a matt for the Sentiment.
The Sentiment if from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set, but you could use any sentiment

SU Delightful Daisy DSP 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" and some scraps for the daisy punching x 3, and the sentiment mount - 2 1/2 x 3 1/4"

Weekend Blog - Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Friendship Card

Welcome to my Weekend Blog

Today I am going to show you a card made with the Stampin' Up!(SU) Sheltering Tree stamp set

As the leaves on "My" tree outside my craft room window start to show the hues of autumn, I am looking forward to the annual display of amazing colours in our trees. This card is a nod to Autumn and also to my Friends who help me through hard times 

I have made this card so that the image on the front overflows the matt that it is stamped on. This effect can either be done by doing all your stamping and then cutting out the square, or by cutting the square first, and then stamping. I have tried it both ways and both work. 

Here I have done all my stamping and then carefully cut out the square. Always stabilize the framelit with Washi tape before running it through Bigshot machine. Once you have the apeture, cut 2 more layers of the same size in the matt colour and make glue the 3 square together to give a nice thickness. Mount with dimesionals

Complete your card as below

These are the items used to make this card

Card recipe:-

SU Sheltering Tree Stamp Set
SU Cardstock Old Olive 1/2 an A4 sheet folded in 1/2
SU Early Espresso Cardstock 5 5/8 x 3 7/8" and a piece to cut out the 2 squares
SU Very Vanilla Cardstock - 3 5/8 x 5 3/8"for the front and 5 5/8 x 3 7/8 for the insert

Stampin' Up! Crafty Cupcakes Design Team Delightful Daisy week 2

Hi Stampers

I have been invited to do the September weekly blog post for the Crafty Cupcakes Design Team, along with Michelle of "Craft - A - Therapy". You can visit Michelle's Blog HERE 

We are using the Stampin'Up! Daisy Delight Stamp  and punch bundle during September.
 This is Week 2

Week 2 card is a generic card. 
I have not added any sentiment to so that you can use it for many occasions ie Thank You, Sympathy, Get Well, Happy Birthday in fact, just about any occasion. A useful card to make and complete at the last minute for the occasion it is required for.

We start with Pear Pizzaz cardstock, A4 size cut in 1/2, scored and burnished to make the card base.

Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 5 3/8" x 3 7/8" and emboss this piece with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. I used a sponge dauber and Pear Pizzaz ink to highlight the leaf design on the card.

Using your Daisy Delight stamps, stamp 2 each of the daisys flowers on Pear Pizzaz, Very Vanilla and So Saffron card using the inks. Punch out the 6 flowers and assemble them using glue dots and Enamel Glitter Dots for the flower centres.

Die cut the stem using the Bird and Blooms Thinlits Dies. 

Add the ribbon and then assemble your card using Tombo glue and dimensionals. 

Stamp an appropriate sentiment on your insert and add it when you are ready to send the card

Card Recipe:-

SU Cardstock - Pear Pizzaz 1/2 A4 sheet 8 1/4" x 5 7/82 and scrap for 2 Daisy punch outs and the stem
SU Cardstock - Very Vanilla 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" x 2, and scraps for 2 Daisy punch outs
