Timeless Tulips Bundle & Giving It Dimension

PicsArt_02-23-10.09.36

Holy cow!!!  I have been doing it wrong.... Ha! Ha!

Well, okay, maybe not totally wrong.  But I think this make more sense.  Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notification of my SAVI Sunday videos. 

SAVI = Stamping & various inspiration.  I share some of my secrets, tips and tricks.  Also, I share what I may have discovered while using my Stampin' Up! products.  And here is case in point...

The Tulip Builder Punch punches out the tulip stamp and then a "leaf".  Which is totally fine.  You can use this way.  But I discovered that the shape of the stamp and punch are a match to the one side of the tulip.  Add the punched piece with a couple of Mini Dimensionals and you just gave your tulip some pop!  Literally!

I show you exactly what I mean in my SAVI Sunday Video.  

CARD BASE:  4-1/4 x 11" scored and folded at 5-1/2"

Whisper White:  4-1/8" x 5-3/8"  and laid the Decorative mask over and sponged with Granny Apply Green

PicsArt_01-09-01.08.10  PicsArt_01-09-01.15.37

One of my favorite Designer Series Paper packs in the 2020 Mini Catalog!  I absolutely love the bright and vibrant colors.  So easy to make a great looking card with a few layers of paper.  Be sure to check out the entire bundle of product for all the coordination.  Peaceful Poppies Suite will not disappoint.  Just know that you can purchase individually or as smaller bundles like the Peaceful Moments or Painted Poppies.  See my supply list below to click on the "suite", the two bundles, and the paper. 

Or maybe you need an extra pack of paper... you can do that too!

Check out my Alternative Card

Did you see my project from last week?  It was titled Come To Gather and Give Thanks... if not SEE IT HERE .  It features the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper, perfect for fall.  It was my submission for a Holiday Catalog Card Challenge! 

So you may be asking, why did I do an alternate project?  Well, I wanted my class members to make the card but I did not have enough of the Wood elements (Tags & Feathers) used on the original card so I swapped over to the Harvest Hello Bundle instead.  Isn't that pumpkin cool?  I punched the pumpkin out of the New Mercury Glass Acetate.  This stuff is so cool and it comes in two designs in the pack.  Below is more of a crackle.

Here is a close up on the Mercury Glass Acetate...   We punched a pumpkin from our mat card stock Pear Pizzazz and adhered it behind the acetate.

I hope you have a chance to get some of this Acetate and use it on one of your projects. 

TIP:  you can color the back of the acetate with your Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  Just pick a color that coordinates with your project. 

Reminder:  September 30, 2019 is last day for BOGO Designer Paper sale.  BUY 3 GET 1 FREE.     Don't miss out on a Free pack of paper.

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. 

See below for my entire list of products I used to make this card.... and let me know if you have questions.  You can email me at lbrown140@gmail.com

Easter Lily... okay, I know, It's a Daffodil 😊

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!
