Snowflakes in July

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful day yesterday! I picked up my sister Eileen and escaped for a little day trip to Baraboo! We did the Circus World Museum and the Merrimac Ferry … it was a good day!

Sunday I shared my Daisy card with you and said I would show you how versatile the Delightful Daisy Designer paper could be, well, I teamed it up with the amazing Colorful Seasons bundle from the Color Theory Suite and here is the result …

At first glance at the designer paper I got the feeling of a pretty snowfall … the beautiful new Tranquil Tide color, adds to the softness of a snowfall. Kind of brought me back to the days when I was a kid and loved to watch the snow first fall.

The greeting comes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set and was stamped in Tranquil Tide Ink. It was cut out with one of the oval shapes from the Stitched Framelits dies.

I made the snowflakes from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  When cutting from the Glimmer paper, I cut from the back (not the glittery side) because it cuts through easier. The new Faceted Gems were added to the snowflakes for even more sparkle and texture.

Another simple layout but the outcome is beautiful. With the heat wave that will soon be upon us … the thought of pretty snowflakes might be a little comforting!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by today!



Simply Sunday: Daisy’s Best

Hello Stampin’ friends ~

I hope you are having a beautiful day … Sunday’s are always a favorite of mine, they just seems to be more relaxing.

Yesterday I shared a card from the Delightful Daisy bundle, and although the bundle is not available at this time, there are plenty of other goodies in this product suite that you can play with.

Today we are going to see more of the Designer Series paper. The Delightful Daisy Designer paper has so many beautiful patterns that can be used year round (You’ll see what I mean tomorrow!).

This beautiful patterned paper with the big yellow daisies create the perfect background for a quick -n- easy card. I teamed up the paper with the Label Me Pretty bundle. This is another new bundle that can be used for so many different projects.

I tucked a strip of the new Old Olive Mimi Chevron ribbon … you will find this in the Color Theory Suite. So many of the new stamp sets and product suites coordinate so nicely together!

Well I’m off so you can enjoy your Sunday … thank you for sharing part of yours with me.

See you tomorrow ~




Daisy Thank You

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a simply beautiful card to share with you. This is just one of the cards we made in my Delightful Daisy class… Simple yes, but oh so pretty …

The beautiful background was created with the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Impressions Folder. I love how this folder creates so much texture and depth to your card. It’s best to give it a little spritz of water to soften the fibers in the cardstock … it will give you the deepest impression.

Our daisy was inked, then stamped off with the delicate color; Pool Party. I wanted the softest look of the stamped image … then we gently sponged a little more Pool Party in the center of the daisy.

The nearly white daisy with the touch of Pool Party really makes your flower POP against the Always Artichoke background. We finished off the daisy with one of the new clear Faceted Gems. My class attendees will get the Faceted Gems FREE with their purchase of the class bundle!

Our greeting was simple as well … a Thank You from the Daisy Delight stamp set (The bundle is currently unavailable to order, but should be back around August 1st).

This was a popular one in class, one comment was “This is so pretty and easy to make … I could make a ton of these!”

So I hope you enjoyed todays card as much as we did, and I THANK YOU for stopping by today!

Enjoy your Saturday ~

Beautiful Thing Card & Color Theory Class Announcement

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a card to share with you that represents another class that I will be hosting this July.  It comes from the Color Theory Suite … you’ve seen the cute card I shared a couple days ago with the Adirondack chair and the feel of summer, today’s card feels like the first breath of Autumn …

I used both the stamps and the dies for the leaves and then matted them with the Color Theory Designer Series paper.  Life is a beautiful thing and this is just one of the beautiful verses in this stamp set, and I highlighted that by using it with one of the oval dies from the “Stitched Shapes Framelits”.

We tied the entire card together by placing the pretty little “Glitter Enamel Dots” around the card front. You can see it draws your eye from the base to the greeting and then to the leaves. Simply pretty.

Here are the details for my upcoming Color Theory Stamp Class …
