Simply Sunday … Shimmer Vellum

Hello Stampin’ Friends!!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend, it’s a HOT one!! lol I’m busy cleaning, organizing, and getting some stamping in too! Today I’d like to share a card with you that I made during my Facebook LIVE last week so some of you may have seen it, but I’ve got a close up for you!!

I was showing different ways to use the NEW Shimmer Vellum, so today I will show you one of the simplest ways … just punch it! It’s the perfect way to embellish a beautiful designer paper such as the Expressions in Ink. Take a look ….

Is this a stunner or what!? This is why I love Stampin’ Up! products … it’s all about the coordination! We start with the Polished Pink card base and then I chose the Expressions In Ink Designer Paper that highlights the Polished Pink color with that amazing watercolor effect and laced with gold!!

I added a gold mat behind the designer paper to really enhance the gold ripples throughout the designer paper. I punched out my Polished Pink Vellum flowers using the Medium Daisy Punch, but I wasn’t done yet ….

I added a few embellishments from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack … more coordination! and by positioning my daisies slightly over the frame, it all ties together perfectly. This close up shows the true shimmer of our vellum, and how these products go together perfectly.

I dazzled my daisies with the NEW In-Color Jewels … but, instead of using the Polished Pink, I chose the Pale Papaya! They pick up the pink from the vellum and have a hint of gold … Perfect! I love the way they look.

This card was so fun and easy to make, but it’s a stunner and your friends are going to love it. And just think, the Expressions in Ink Designer paper have “more” of our In-Colors so it will coordinate with more of our Shimmer Vellum and In-Color Jewels … you can’t go wrong!!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit.

Have a wonderful day ~

Daisy Lane Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today both of the cards featured today were created with the Daisy Lane bundle.  The cards are so different from each other … amazing! Each year the bundles “disappear” … even when the stamps, punches or dies remain in the catalog, your chance to save 10% has passed.

Both of the cards I’m sharing today were created for my April Stamp Club. Because of our “Safer at Home” order, my clubs are not able to meet at my Stampin’ studio as usual but that doesn’t’ stop us … I have created a special Facebook group for my club members, and they get “Card Kits’ each month along with PDF’s which include pictures, step by step instructions, dimensions and a supply list.

This beautiful card features dies, the daisy punch and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper is a lightweight paper with photographic images of real pressed petals on one side and vintage designs on the other. One design has distinct designs to cut out and use on card front.

I have already shared the “Dutch Fold Card” with you featuring the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  I am sending the PDF for both cards to anyone who purchases $50 (before shipping & taxes) during the month of May. The cards are from my April Card Club and each PDF includes photos, full instructions, dimensions and a supply list.  You’ll love the step by step instructions.

I do have a PDF created with full instructions and dimensions for this card… I am sending it to anyone who purchases $50 (before shipping & taxes) during the month of May. You’ll also get today’s Daisy Card PDF that I will send along.  The cards are from my April Card Club and each PDF includes photos, full instructions, dimensions and a supply list.  You’ll love the step by step instructions.

Today’s Stamping Supply List …

With the Retirement List out … now is the perfect time to get those goodies before they are gone for good!  Remember, many of the designer papers are on sale right now!

Let me know if you would like help placing your order. I will email you the PDF files for both of these cards … Step by Step instructions, photo, dimensions and supply list!!

Thank you for joining me today! I hope your day is a good one.

Garden Lane Dutch Fold Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you enjoyed a nice weekend and got a chance to check out the four cards I made yesterday featuring the stunning Perennial Essence Designer Series paper and the Strong & Beautiful Stamp set.  Today I’ll feature the Garden Lane Designer paper (also on sale) the Daisy Punch, and introducing the “Dutch Fold Card”.

This card would be pretty without the Dutch Fold … the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper features verdant greenery and designs in lush shades and when teamed up with Blushing Bride will make you think spring for sure.

This pretty card folds flat for easy mailing but stands beautifully like an art easel showcasing the focal point … our punched daisy and foliage. The “Leaf” punch was on the “Discontinued List” … but has already sold out.

I sponged the Daisy before actually punching it out, that gives you more control on applying how heavy of soft you apply the ink.  I use the sponge daubers to apply ink. The stem is just a piece of scrap but tied together with the Daisy and Leaf punch, you have created a pretty flower.

I do have a PDF created with full instructions and dimensions for this card… I am sending it to anyone who purchases $50 (before shipping & taxes) during the month of May. There is also a second Daisy Card PDF that I will send along.  The cards are from my April Card Club and each PDF includes photos, full instructions, dimensions and a supply list.  You’ll love the step by step instructions.

Thank you for visiting with me today.

Daisy Delights: Two Guest Stampers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather … it’s been amazing and it’s suppose to be gorgeous today too. OK … I’m not the local weather person, so let me talk more about what I’m good at, stamping!  Today I have two really cute cards that were created by my Spring Retreat Attendees Kellie and Michelle.  The spring floral cards both used the Daisy Punch, which by the way … will be in the upcoming catalog and has another stamp set to coordinate with it!

Let’s start with Kellie’s card, she used both the Daisy Punch and the Daisy Delights stamp set…

I believe Kellie used Blushing Bride and Whisper White as her core color pallet.  The white background was embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  I love the little Happy Birthday Banner … it’s so cute and adds a sweet touch to the card.  One of my favorite embellishments, the Faceted Gems! Whether you use the Gold or the Clear, you can’t go wrong and I just love them with this daisy punch!

Count your petals on Michelle’s card …

Is this a card saying … He love me, he loves me not?  I’m not sure but it’s really cute!  Michelle’s daisies were punched out using the beautiful Shimmery White cardstock (No Wink of Stella needed!) this cardstock has a shimmer of it’s own,

Michelle’s color pallet consists of white and the beautifully bold Daffodil Delight, bright and happy! Her background was created using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and was cut into 3 panels to highlight each transition of the daisy

Don’t you just love a punch that can create two totally different styles of cards… That’s what I call “cost effective”! lol

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to join me in “picking daisies”.

Enjoy your day ~
