It's your time to shine... with Daisies

Hey!  Did you know that there is a New Daisy Punch?

Stampin' Up! is calling it the Medium Daisy and it is the perfect match or compliment to the larger Daisy Punch we carried over from the last catalog.  Now you can layer the two punches together like I did on my 'It's your time to shine' card.  The words are from the stamp set "Daisy Lane".  The stamp set coordinates with both punches and you can purchase the Daisy Lane Bundle at a 10% discount! 

Oh, and this is my Team Swap card... I will be sharing the others shortly.

I used Petal Pink card stock for the base, a layer of Whisper White and the top background paper is the gorgeous Perennial Essence Design Series Paper! 

Paper Saving Tip:  stamp and punch your daisies from the Whisper White layer!!!

Stamp two large daisies and two smaller daisies in Petal Pink ink.  Attach each layer with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

My flower center is the metal embellishment called Designer Element found on page 178 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  You get one sheet of these in 3 finishes!  I used the Antique Copper finish.  These are my new favorite embellishment in the Annual catalog. 

Leaf Punch was used with Old Olive card stock.

Sprig Punch was used with Vellum card stock.

I know this is a retired set (You're Inspiring) from the 2018 Occasions catalog, but I had a special request for a spring flower Easter card so I decided to share with you.  You can use any stamp image you would like in place of the daffodils. 

Both cards were colored with Stampin' Blends!  The yellow part is a combination of Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody, both dark markers.  I used the Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaves and stems. 

The top card is stamped in Black Memento Ink on Whisper White Card Stock and then colored in using the Stampin' Blends.

The bottom card is colored on the Backside of Vellum!  I heat embossed the image using white embossing powder and color on the opposite side with your Blends.  Love that technique! And it is forgiving on coloring in the lines. 

Happy spring and Happy Easter!

Geared Up Garage

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.  The weather is messing with us, isn't it?  A little bit of sun, a tiny bit of snow, and cold!  I guess I can deal with cold temperatures as long as the sun would shine.  It just makes it feel better. 

Friday was my dad's birthday and what better card to give then one made with Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gear Thinlit Dies.  I was so excited to see the smile on his face when he opened it up.  Of course, before he opened, he asked "did you make this?"  He's so funny.

It was fun to create a masculine card and I need to play with the set more!  Actually, the whole project suite.  I did not get to use the Classic Garage metal embellishments on this one,  nor the Black/Silver stripped metallic ribbon.  I tried, but sometimes, it just does not work for me visually.  

2 Tips:

Anyways, sorry about the poor photography on this one.  The Gear Die is all one piece and cut out of Silver Foil paper.  The light reflection makes the foil paper look like two different colors.  I cut the gears out of the silver mat piece!  Paper server..... To help resist the 'bumps' from my cutting plates being pressed into the foil, I cover my project in plastic.  I save the plastic that Stampin' Up! card stock comes in and cut it up into strips.  You just have to make sure to smooth it out over your project before running through your Big Shot.  

I really like the black and white tire paper from the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  I am so partial to black and white, but there are some fun colorful sheets that come in the stack. Make sure to check out my complete supply list below and check out the paper.

A little bit of coloring with Cherry Cobbler Blends markers, and Framelit dies from Classic Garage and this card came together nicely.  Well, I had a bit of inspiration too from Carolyn King, an Australian Demonstrator.  

I hardly ever decorate both insides of a card but I wanted to include more die cuts!  So here is my inside.  This shows the little nut trio stamp and you can see the oil spatter stamp better than on the front.  So cute!

Oh.... and in case you were wondering, the Happy Birthday just happens to be from Sweetest Thing stamp set.  I've included a link below.

Shimmer Paint & Shimmer Paste Come Together!

Hello!  It has been cold and snowy this week in the Cleveland, Ohio area.  So I think this card is appropriate, especially, we also have a lot of deer around.

I enjoy doing cards like this; it has a little texture but not overwhelming.  Most of all, you can create for several occasions such as birthday, Christmas, thinking of you, just because, and more.  It does not have to be just for the holidays!

Don't you just love these trees?  They are from the In the Woods Framelit dies and I used Whisper White and Soft Sea Foam card stock.  (In the Woods framelits bundle with Winter Woods stamp set.  I have linked both in my product list below).

Tip:  these trees are great to use your Fine Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets

So, are you asking how I did my winter background?

Do you see that shimmer in the upper left-hand corner?  I tried to get the light to reflect as much as possible while photographing the card so you could see the shine.  It is made with Frost White Shimmer Paint and cellophane (or Saran Wrap as I call it).  I took a small piece of Saran Wrap and loosely balled it up, poured a droplet of shimmer paint on my Silicone Craft sheet, and dabbed into the paint.  I spread the shimmer paint around my silicone mat a little so when I dab onto my Whisper White card stock, it is nice and light instead of 'clumps' of paint.

Tip:  you can dab the Shimmer Paint on your trees too!

My 'snowy ground' is  Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  Perfect application!  I spread the Shimmer Paste across the bottom of the Whisper White card stock with my Palette knives.  Then, bounced the Palette knife over it to give it tiny peaks and an uneven surface. 

Lastly, my deer is from the Detailed Deer Thinlit dies and cut out using Early Espresso card stock.  (Detailed Deer dies bundle with Dashing Deer stamp set.  Again, I have linked both below as you save 10% with bundles).

Christmas is coming so boy, I better start posting all my card projects.  With just returning from OnStage (Stampin' Up! convention) in Orlando, the prep before hand, I am behind. 

I love this card, from the Flap Fold to the color of Merry Merlot, it just says Christmas to me!   Be sure to check out my Events Calendar for my upcoming class featuring this set.  Not local or cannot make in-person class, let me know and I will mail you the stamp set and all pieces for the 9 cards.  Include $7.00 for postage.  You can add on any items you may not have like ink or embossing folder. 

 The Copper Foil sheet is embossed with the Swirls & Curls Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder really pops and adds that needed shine. 

I have made a printable PDF so that you can download and save.  The possibilities are endless for this Folding Flap Card.  You can make it for any occasion.

Don't have a Big Shot?  #simplestamping technique.  Use a piece of Designer series paper in place of the Copper Foil Sheet and Embossing Folder or stamp your own background like I did on the inside of the card.
