Girly Note…

Have you noticed the stamp set in the new Annual Catalog on page 181 called Crafting Forever?  I have had just the best time pulling that set out and focusing on making cards for all my crafty friends.

Daisy Bouquet…

Can you think of anything better than taking someone a daisy bouquet that will never die?  Me either!

So today I’m posting just that…

How sweet is that?

I used this arrangement today at my New Catalog Open House and added Baby’s Breath to fill it in.  I should have taken another pic for you, but I’m so tired right now, I can’t move.

Suffice it to say as cute as it looks here the Baby’s Breath did add to the overall look.

This little pail (which I got at Ikea) is about 5″ across and it took 15 daisies to make it look this full.  I made three taller ones, five medium and seven short ones.

There are three different colored flowers:

  • White with Daffodil Delight sponging
  • Pink Powder cardstock with Fresh Fig sponging
  • Pink Powder cardstock with Berry Burst stamping and sponging.

All have Daffodil Delight cardstock 1/2″ circle punched and stamped with detailed center stamp.

I curled one petals under on one layer and left the top layer flat.  Hot glued together alternating petals.

There is a Styrofoam ball cut in half hot glued inside the pail to hold the arrangement.  The top of the ball was covered in hot glue and shredded paper added on top.

Florist wire was twisted in a circle and bent flat.  The flowers were hot glued to this flat area.

The pail was decorated with Berry Burst 3/8″ Ribbon and a half flower (all hot glued) and the label was made with the Pretty Label Punch and stamp set.

This whole thing took me about 30 minutes to put together.  I think I’m going to keep it for a while on my desk.  It just makes me happy to look at it.

Hope you are having a great day and plan to stop back by tomorrow.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

today is one.

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!

Loves Me, Loves Me Not…

Yes remembering my childhood and teaching my children and now g’children how to pull the petals of a daisy saying, “Loves me, loves me not”.  Such sweet memories…

So you will understand why today’s post is so close to my heart.

Oh, be still my heart!  How sweet is she?

All coloring was done with water color pencils and a damp round brush.

And a side view showing her shadow which was “painted” in with black water color pencil and the dimension.

and a peek inside!

In reality this is a really simple card, but it does use three different framelit sets and the Daisy Punch.  I still love it anyway!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery, Soft Sayings Kit (sentiment…I couldn’t help it the sentiment was perfect!) and Daisy Delight
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1/2″ Circle Punch, Daisy Punch, Scalloped Ovals Framelits, Birthday Friends Framelits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Adhesive Strips and Water Color Pencils plus small round brush

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Daffodil Delight layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″.  Cut with scalloped oval framelit leaving a little more room at bottom for sentiment.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black then attach to card from positioned centered side to side and closer to the bottom to make room for daisy at top.
  • Stamp girl with Archival Basic Black on water color paper, let dry.  Color with water color pencils.  I used Calypso Coral lightly for skin tone, Pacific Point for dress and Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight for hair.  Cut out with framelit.  Isn’t it so cool this framlit can cut out this stamp of the girl backwards and the girl from the DSP from the front?  Clever designer!  Add to center of scalloped oval on card front with strip adhesive.  It stands up taller than dimensionals.
  • Cut branch from Old OLive with branch thinlit in Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Cut away one of the branches so you have a single branch.  Stamp two daisies on scrap Thick Whisper White in Archival Basic Black.  Let dry!  Using a dauber and Daffodil Delight ink pad, color centers.  Punch out both daisies.  Stamp the detailed flower center stamp on Daffodil Delight scrap with Daffodil Delight ink and punch out with 1/2″ Circle Punch and add to daisy center.  Cut one daisy in half.  Be sure there are no petals above half way of center.  Glue (SNAIL or multipurpose glue) three petals from those you cut away to back of first layer so they fill in the blank spaces.
  • With glue dots or multipurpose glue add stem to hands and back of daisy.  Add daisy to top right corner of card front with two dimensionals.
  • Inside the Daffodil Delight layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • Add stem with multipurpose glue and one half daisy made the same as the card front daisy with a dimensional.  Stamp center like previous daisy and add to flower center.

Like I said in the beginning, this is a pretty simple card, but does use several pieces from different sets.

Tomorrow’s post is pretty special, so I hope you’ll stop by and participate!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

And you can always be HaPpY with inky fingers!

Special Delivery…

Remember those special birthdays with this Birthday Delivery Bundle and you are sure to impress.

And loving this bundle is sooooo easy.  Is it the retro look?  The primary colors?  The creative design and coordination of the framelits?

The answer is yes!, yes! and yes!

Today’s highlight is on the sweet little girl image on the designer series paper and the stamp.  How cool is it that the framelit cuts out both even though the stamp is not the front but the back of the little girl?

Here’s today’s post…

Isn’t she just the cutest?  And all you have to do is cut her with the framelit from the DSP!

And her glamour close up…(the gift box was also cut with a framelit from the DSP!)

and a side view…

Pacific Point Fall…

Doors with color are my favorite.  Personally my door is red, but today I have a card for you to send out in the fall with a blue door…

A Pacific Point blue door…

I like the wreaths behind the lanterns.  The background was done on water color paper.

Side angle.  This door doesn’t open.

And a place to write your message inside.

I want to send this card to someone who has a birthday in the fall or as a Happy Thanksgiving card.  I need to put this one somewhere where I can find it.  Hmmm….

This bundle really has everything you need for these “door” cards for each season.  I do like the windows of the door punched out.  You could slip a piece of Daffodil Delight behind them to look like lights are on behind the door.  Just a random thought…you know how my mind jumps hither ‘n thither.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Crumb Cake and Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Pacific Point
  • Stamps:  At Home With You
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  small round paint brush, At Home Framelits and Brick Wall Embossing Folder

Digits

  • The Crumb Cake base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The water color paper background layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Color all of the water color paper with a light wash of Smoky Slate Reinker. and the bottom 1″ go over with with Soft Suede once the Smoky Slate has dried.  Add Smoky Slate ink to inside of Brick Wall Embossing Folder, add water color layer inside and run through Big Shot to get brick/block effect.  Add this layer to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Stamp two wreaths, two lanterns, one sign, one pumpkin/sunflower, one door and a welcome sign with Archival Basic Black on water color paper.  Using reinker and small round paint brush, paint each piece.  Use Pacific Point marker around window and door frame.  Cut all pieces out with coordinating framelits.
  • Stamp sign holder bow to from of door and add sign with dimensionals.  Add door to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Add wreaths to either side of door with multipurpose glue.
  • Add lanterns to either side of door over wreaths with dimensionals.
  • Add “welcome” mat under door with multipurpose glue.
  • Add pumpkins/sunflowers to one side of door with dimensionals.
  • Inside the card there is a Thick Whisper White layer 4″ x 5-1/4″ stamped with pumpkin/sunflowers in Archival Black and colored with brush/markers.  Be sure to add a shadow for the arrangement to sit on.

I really like the way the washed water color paper in the background “took” the embossing folder ink and impression.  Really adds to the overall effect of this card front.  Plus blue and orange or complimentary colors on the wheel and almost always look great together.

Hope your are having the best Thursday and have all your plans made for the Memorial Day Weekend.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

well…

And you can be HaPpY if your fingers are inky!

Shut the Door!

The new At Home With You stamp set caught me eye at first look.  Why?  I love doors…of all kinds.  When w travel, I always come home with pictures of doors and sometimes even paint them.  Don’t ask me why…it happens!

So this set intrigued me and I was excited to spend a whole day playing with all the different looks you can create with it.  It has everything to take you through each season and then some.

Here’s my first try…

I made the door red because my front door is red…of course it is!

You can cut the framelit so the front door opens and offers a message, but you don’t have to.

You can see how this one layers up and check out the brick embossing…

Wouldn’t this card be fun to send to someone new in the neighborhood?

I’ll have several different doors to show you in the next days, but here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for this one…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Crumb Cake, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Real Red, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
  • Stamps:  At Home With You
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  At Home Framelits Dies, Brick Wall Embossing Folder

Digits

  • The 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Crumb Cake base card was scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Wood Texture DSP layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  Run this piece through Big Shot using the Brick Wall EF then attach to card front with SNAIL
  • The darker Wood Texture DSP was cut 4-1/8″ x 1″ and attached at bottom of card front with SNAIL
  • On scrap Thick Whisper White CS stamp two doors, a wreath, one sign and two flower pots in Archival Basic Black.  Cut out with matching framelits.  Stamp “congrats” on sign.
  • The door was “painted” with Real Red reinker and a small round brush (you could use Aqua Painter) using water and reinker in stamp pad lid.  The door frame was “painted” with Crumb Cake the same way.  Cut this door with extra framelit so the door will open.  Cut door windows with framelit.
  • On the second door frame stamp the sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Attach the “painted” door over the sentiment piece with SNAIL.  Add door to card front with dimensionals.
  • Color wreath and two flower pots with Real Red, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight markers.  Add wreath to door with dimensionals.  Add flower pot on floor to right of door.
  • Stamp door mat on Crumb Cake with Archival Basic Black, cut out with framelit.  I “painted” around the edges with the paint brush and some Crumb Cake reinker.  Add to card front with multipurpose glue or SNAIL.
  • Stamp sign string on door front under wreath.  Add “congrats” sign with dimensionals.
  • Inside the Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Color second flower pot with markers.  Before attaching to bottom right corner with dimensionals, add a small base of Crumb Cake with brush or marker to sit the pot on.  Add sentiment in Archival Basic Black at top center.  Add layer to inside card with SNAIL

I have loved working with this stamp set.  Of course, being a “door” person makes it perfect for me.  You’ll be seeing a couple of seasonal doors in the next couple of days…even Christmas!

Hope your “hump” day is special…

Stenciling…

Yesterday I explained how I was sidetracked while working on this month’s Paper Pumpkin by a laser cut that I  thought would make a great stencil.

Immediately this soft pastel card was stuck in my head and there was nothing to do but stop and make it…happens  all.  the.  time.

So today I wanted to show you what I did with the laser cut…

Didn’t that just work out peachy?

Glamour close up…

I could have turned it over and used it as it was intended in the Paper Pumpkin Kit, but dang this just looked gorgeous…so I went with it!

There are really no Stuff ‘N Digits because this card base was in the kit.  I purposely left off a sentiment because this card could be used for so many different occasions.  A sentiment can always be added later…

Just thought I’d share…

Hope your are having an awesome day.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

seriously…

You can always be HaPpY with inky fingers!
