Daisy Delight - Super Colorful and Fun

This card that I am sharing today was made with the Daisy Delight bundle. The bundle comes with the stamp set and the coordinating Daisy Punch. One thing that I want to mention is that only the stamp set is available right now. The Bundle and the Punch will be available on June 26th.

This is a great set to play around with. And it looks great in any color that you pair it with. I decided to go with melon mambo, calypso coral and lemon lime twist. I love bright colors, so this was so fun to create and it makes me happy to use all these super colorful inks and cardstocks.

On this card, I used the Stampin white chalk marker to make stitched lines around the basic black cardstock. Makes it pop a little bit.

Here's a close up of the detail- the black metallic thread and the new Clear Fauceted Gems. I also used the Brushstrokes background stamp in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I am a big fan of background stamps and I own every one that we carrry!

This stamp set has so many darling images, I had to try to use them all. So, of course I added some fun stamping on the inside of the card. As you can see I used the basic black cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 as the base of the card and used the whisper white (10 1/2 x 4) as the actual card. Kind of a neat variation to the basic card.

This one I used the basic black bakers twine instead of the black metallic thread, behind the flower image.

Here's the whole fabulous bunch. The brighter the colors, the happier it makes me!

Wood Words Variation

I have a quick post on a simple variation of the Wood Words stamp set that I used on my previous blog post. I used the same card fold and colors as well as the same two stamp sets, Wood Words and Label Me Pretty.

I only changed a few things to make this card look a little different.

IMG_5435

I added the beautiful cluster of flowers from the Wood Words set in crumb cake ink and I also used the new Wood Textures designer paper stack.

The same simple Z fold- you can check out the blog post previous to this one for the measurements and tips.

IMG_5437

I also used very vanilla cardstock on the inside of this one.

IMG_5434

Thought I'd share this one with you, as you can basically use all the same supplies.

I just received my box full of more new Stampin Up stamps and accessories, so I will be playing with my goodies tonight.

Stay tuned for some new creations coming soon!

Thanks again for stopping by.

Quick and Cute Piggy

I've got another cute little piggy card to share with you today. Its very simple but very sweet.

I used watercolor paper and aqua painters to watercolor the little pig. Its as simple as squeezing the lids of the inkpads, into the pad itself and picking up the deposited bit of ink on the inside of the lid with the aqua painter and coloring the image. I used the new "in color", powder pink, as well as flirty flamingo and a bit of pear pizazz for the grass.

How do you like the new "Oh My Stars" emboss folder that I used on the whisper white background? Pretty cool, huh?

I cut the scallop circle from the crumb cake cardstock with the Layering Circles framlits and also used the crumb cake cardstock for the card base.

I finished the card with the new powder pink finely woven ribbon and attached it with a glue dot.

On the inside, I used the verse "Says Thanks!" I'm just loving This Little Piggy and I think you will too!

Thanks for stopping by.

This Little Piggy- Cute, New Catalog stamp set

I want to share another piggy card- just because I love it so much! The set is called "This Little Piggy" and its so super cute. I don't know how anyone could not love this little bugger.

I love the happy skip that this little piggy has. Isn't she cute?

IMG_4624

This is a very pretty in pink, piggy card. Say that 3 times fast! I used the Sparkle emboss folder for the melon mambo strip down the middle and framed it in basic black cardstock, along with the pink pirouette for the card base.

I also used shimmery white cardstock to stamp the pig on, because it holds up to watercoloring really well. The Stitched Shapes framelits was used to cut out the square.

Such a happy card, perfect for a "happy mail" day.

Hope you are having a happy day too.

Thanks for visiting!

Until the next time...

Sharing a Card and a Technique Video + Last Chance for Retired Products

I was given a beautiful card at the On Stage event in April. It was from a demonstrator who had watched my video on the Aqua Wash technique. Megan Herst had made her swap cards for the event using the aqua wash technique from my video and wanted to share her card with me. I will post the video below for those of you who may have missed it.

I was so pleasantly surprised by her thoughtfulness and her beautiful card. Here's is Megan's awesome card using the aqua wash technique.

Megan also used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating dies as I did in my video. I love how Megan added a splash of gold embossing to match her gold foil dragonflies.

Thanks again to Megan for thinking of me and presenting me with this fabulous, glimmery card.
