Today’s card is going to be the top right one using the new Daisy punch,  This is a very quick and easy card to make especially for beginners to paper crafts.

Whisper White cardstock is used for the card base which is cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Basic Black cardstock is used for the top layer which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere it to the base card using Stampin’ Up Snail tape runner.  Punch out 3 daisies using the new Daisy punch in Whisper White and adhere them on the card.  Using a scrap of Daffodil Delight punch out 3 centers for the daisies using a 3/4″ circle punch and adhere them to each daisy.  Using a scrap of Whisper White stamp the sentiment “get well wishes” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set using memento Black ink and punch out using the classic label punch.  Next adhere to the back of the label the new Stampin’ Up Mini Dimensionals at both ends and put on the card. To complete the card put a clear Faceted Gem inside each daisy.

Happy Wednesday

Had my Hostess Club gathering last night.  I always have a lot of fun with those gals 🙂  Unfortunately we were missing some because of summertime and vacations.

Today I’m going to share the bottom left card. It was using the Color Theory Suite.

I love this stamp set Colorful Seasons as it has such versatility.  You can do a summer at the beach because of the lounger chair.  You can can do a fall card using the leaf stamps.  There is a snowflake stamp for a winter card.  This suite also has a Memories and More pack which you can use in photo album, scrapbook pages or to add that extra wow to a card!

The base of this card is Berry Burst cardstock which is 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  Next layer is Whisper White which is cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  For the open house I had a choice of 4 different colors to choose from which included Berry Burst, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive which was cut to the size 3 3/4″ x 5″ and was adhered to the Whisper White layer with stampin dimensionals.  I cut the flowers out of the variegated side of the Color Theory DSP paper using the flower thinlit from the  Seasonal Layers thinlits that go with the stamp set.  The middle of the flower dots used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go this Suite.

I stamped the saying You make me Smile from the stamp set Colorful Seasons onto a scrap of  Whisper White cardstock.  This card used the Berry Burst ink and was then punched out using the new Pretty Label punch.  Also, the Pretty Label punch was used with the DSP paper.

This suite can be found on pgs. 146 – 147 in the new annual catalog.

The first card today will be the top left one.  I saw it on Pinterest and thought it was so cute and easy to do.  It was from the Birthday Memories Suite found on pg. 68 – 69 in the new catalog.

It was your regular A2 size card using Blushing Bride cardstock.  The first layer was paper from the DSP Birthday Memories paper.  It was cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″.  The Happy Birthday was stamped at the left side of the 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ Whisper White piece using Real Red ink.  Blushing Bride cardstock was used to cut out the largest Stitched Oval shaped Framelit.  The little girl is cut out from another Birthday Memories DSP paper along with the present. Blushing Bride 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (retired) was used .  Put the ribbon under the Whisper White piece and then tie a knot using a smaller piece of ribbon.

Fall / Autumn Cards

Happy Saturday!  The weather is finally starting to cool off.  Not in the 90’s but in the high 70’s for a high and 53 for a low!!  Good football weather 🙂

The following card was one they made in class this past Thursday and today.

I was just playing around with inks and remembered how Brandy Cox had used big acrylic blocks at On Stage Live so I thought I would see about using a smaller block and see what I could come with.  I loved this!!

I used acrylic block A and the following inks: Cherry cobbler, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive to make the squares on the Very Vanilla paper. Other inks used were Soft Suede for the large leaves and Early Espresso for the small leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  This was all stamped on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla.  Then use Cherry Cobbler ribbon from the 3/8″ Silky Taffeta combo pack found in the Holiday catalog.  It was then adhered to a Cherry Cobbler base card 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. The sentiment is from Acorny Thank You and stamped on Very Vanilla with Cherry Cobbler ink and punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.  I then went around the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink before putting it on the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
