Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Simply Thankful Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to The October Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop!

Our theme for this month is Giving Thanks and I’ve made a card using the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set and the wonderful sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Home stamp set. These daisies remind me of the purple mums that are all over the place at this time of year and make me feel like Fall. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by die cutting two pieces of Sahara Sand card stock using the second largest of the Stitched Rectangles dies. On one of them, I took the third largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies and cut out the middle to make a frame. Then I cut a panel of green leafy paper from the Magnolia Lane designer series paper using the same die. Then I adhered the frame to the second Sahara Sand die cut and adhered the green leaf DST to the inside.

Then I used the middle of the Sahara Sand frame to cut the label die from the Wild Rose dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set it and then adhered it to the background panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the large maple leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very Vanilla. I then colored it with the Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I also cut two maple leaves from Old Olive cardstock and one maple leaf from Cajun Craze cardstock using the smaller maple leaf die from the Gathered Leaves dies. Then I cut three berry branches in Gold Glimmer paper using the berry die from the Frosted Bouquet dies.

I stamped six small daisies from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card stock. Using a bone folder, I gently rounded the ends of the petals and glued three petal clusters together for each flower. I accented the centers with the gold Designer Elements. I arranged the leaves and berries on the panel and adhered them with liquid glue. I adhered the flowers with glue dots. I then used dimensionals to attach the decorated panel to a Cajun Craze card base.

I decided that I had to give the inside of the card the same frame treatment as the card front. So I cut another frame in Sahara Sand just like the front and attached it to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I then adhered a strip of the Magnolia Lane DSP to the bottom of a Very Vanilla panel and cut it out with the third largest die from the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered this to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

There you have it – a pretty fall card with flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, turning maple leaves and touches of gold to express the thankful sentiments that abound at this time of year. Thanks for visiting!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Smile Card

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend and are ready for the weekday grind. Today I have a card with a cheery Monday morning message, “Smile … It’s your time to shine!“. The card is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling bundle. You can find the products used at the bottom of the post.

The layout for today’s card is inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #395. This simple sketch gave me a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful large Stitched Label in vellum. And the striped paper is just enough to break up the patterned background.

And the colors are inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge #318. This combination is so fresh and summery and it gave me another opportunity to stamp patterned paper.

Be sure to check out the fantastic entries in these challenges for more card making inspiration.

I started today’s card by making another faux DSP – designer series paper or patterned paper. I used the daisy stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane and Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp sets and the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Free as a Bird stamp set. On a sheet of Whisper White cardstock, I randomly stamped the large daisy in Petal Pink, the small daisy in Calypso Coral and the leaves in Mint Macaron. I lightly sponged each image in the respective colors and then I sponged the rest with So Saffron. Then I ran it through the Subtle embossing folder to add texture. The embossing really made it special!

I cut an extended piece of the striped paper from the Magnolia Lane DSP using the 1″ Stitched Rectangle die. I die cut the large fancy Stitched Label die from vellum and heat embossed the Smile sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set on Mink Macaron and die cut it using the smaller Stitched label Die.

I stamped three of the small daisies in Petal Pink on Whisper White and punched them out with the Medium Daisy Punch and curled the ends before attaching them together. I finished the daisy off with a non-SU clear enamel dot from my stash that I colored with the dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and finally a Mint Macaron leaf branch from the Flourish dies. I arranged all the elements on the card front, matted it in Mint Macaron and then popped it on a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the shine sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set, added a strip of faux DSP and matted it in Mint Macaron.

Isn’t that a pretty and cheerful way to start a summer week? Thanks for visiting and I hope that you have a week where you do shine!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane with Perennial Essence DSP Friendship Card

Good Morning! Today I have a clean and simple – CAS – card that uses the new Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling stamp set, the new Perennial Essence Designer Series paper and the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies.

This card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #394 and I really tried to keep it simple in keeping with the CAS philosophy. Check out the FMS394 designer inspiration and other challenge entries. You can find supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by cutting a strip of the pretty Perennial Essence DSP and matting it with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

I then made the pretty daisy by stamping the small daisy from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Vellum cardstock. I then dusted it with white embossing powder and heat set. I punched it with the Medium Daisy punch. I did this twice so that I had two sets of flower petals. I used my bone folder to gently curl the petals back and attached them together using a glue dot. The flower is finished with one of the Perennial Essence Floral Centers embellishments. Look at that shine!

I next die cut the word ‘friend’ using the Stampin’ Up! Well Written dies in Flirty Flamingo and adhered it to the DSP with the fine tipped glue pen. I attached the daisy with a glue dot and attached the DSP panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. That’s it!

The inside is pretty simple too – I accented the whisper white with a strip of the Stampin’ Up! Perennial Essence DSP and added a flirty flamingo mat before attaching it to the card base with snail.

This was a quick card and I was so tempted to dress it up more with ribbon or leaves but decided to leave it be and let the daisy and DSP take the spotlight. What do you think?

A simple pretty friendship card that that can be used for any occasion. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
