Hello! I hope that you are managing okay during these very extraordinary circumstances. One way to stay connected to family, friends, neighbors and colleagues alike is to “make a card, send a card.” I know most of you are sitting on a stockpile of stamping supplies, so what better time than now to get them out and create cards. They don’t have to be elaborate – stamps, ink, paper is all it takes, as it is mostly the thought that counts!
For today’s card I’m featuring a thank you card I made for customers that attended my February Stamping Club. By the time I had a chance to sit down and make the cards, the shelter in place directive had taken effect, so I decided to make the cards extra special and do something bright and cheerful too! I used the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating daisy punches, which I haven’t used in a while, along with the beautiful Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Papers, one of the products in the Sale-A-Bration second release.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score and fold in half.
Cut piece of Melon Mambo cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card front.
Cut piece of Flowering Foils DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″. I selected Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Melon Mambo for my color palette and used a sponge brayer to cover the DSP with the three different ink colors. Simply roll the brayer over the ink pad several times until the sponge picks up the ink and then roll it across the paper. Depending on how intense you want the color to be, you can keep reinking and sponge rolling. First I put down the Pineapple Punch, then the Grapefruit Grove and then the Melon Mambo, slightly overlapping each of the colors. I then went back a second time to further blend the lines together for each of the colors.
Stamp two large daisies and one small daisy from the Daisy Lane Stamp set for each finished daisy. One set is stamped with Pineapple Punch ink and the other with the Grapefruit Grove ink. Adhere the three daisies together with liquid glue.
Stamp greeting on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 1/2″ x 2 3/4″. I used the “a little note” from the Butterfly Gala stamp set not only because I like the greeting but I also like the type font too. Using a pair of paper snips, flag one of the ends to make a banner.
To put the card together, position the daisies where you’d like them and before adhering them down on the foil paper, first adhere the greeting with liquid glue, positioning one of the ends underneath a daisy. Adhere first daisy over the greeting and then adhere the second daisy, slightly overlapping the first one. Adhere piece to Melon Mambo mat. For the final touch, add a Perennial Essence Floral Center to each daisy.

Hello! Today’s card features the new Daisy Lane stamp set, Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating punches. I paired them up with Perennial Essence, my favorite Designer Series Paper in the new annual catalog. This was an easy card to put together.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Crushed Curry cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and fold in half.
Cut piece of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card base.
Cut piece of So Saffron cardstock at 1″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp “friend” greeting from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Crushed Curry ink. I also made a few thank you cards and used the “thank you” greeting from the Daisy Delight stamp set.
To make the flowers, stamp the larger daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set two times on piece of So Saffron from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock and punch out with the large daisy punch. Curl petals up with a bone folder. Adhere pieces together with liquid glue at center of flowers. Stamp two of the small daisies in Crushed Curry ink on piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the medium daisy punch. Curl petals and adhere with liquid glue. Adhere the two sets of flowers together at center.
To finish off the card, using Old Olive cardstock, cut four leaves from the Lovely Flowers Dies. Adhere leaves to left of stamped greeting, two above and two below. Adhere daisies with Stampin’ Dimensional. Adhere Gold Faceted Gem to center of daisies.

Hello! Today I’m featuring another treat box made with the Window Box Thinlits. It has been so dark and dreary for the last few weeks so I wanted to make something bright and cheerful to remind me of spring. What better than the Gingham Gala Designer Series Papers in Daffodil Delight, paired with the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch! I haven’t shown these products some love in a long time so it was fun working with them again.
Here is how I made the box.
Die cut two Window Box pieces from Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper and put box together using either Tear and Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Stamp two of the daisy images in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Daisy Punch. Adhere the daisies together in the center with a Glue Dot. Using a bone folder, gently curl the petals up.
Stamp greeting in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the oval tag die from the Window Box Thinlits set. I used a greeting from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. Cut a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread and tie through the hole in the tag. Adhere to box. Stampin’ Up’s Linen Thread is one of my favorite threads because it is so versatile. The Old Olive thread is new in the Occasions Catalog and you are going to love it too!
Adhere daisies to top of box using a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center. Punch small Daffodil Delight circle with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and adhere to center of daisies. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem to the circle.
Die cut two leaves from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I used one of the leaf thinlits from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits set however you can use any leaf thinlit or punch that would fit nicely on the top of the box. Arrange leaves on top of box and adhere.
