Glittery Thank You Daisy Delight

Hi Friends,

Where has the week gone????

Well to start off your fun weekend, take a look at this card!

I know you can't see ALL the glitz,  but it's there and I think it adds just the right amount to make this card a sparkling surprise!

Daisy-delight-thank-you-card-stampin-up-delightul-daisy-DSP

This card starts out on a thick Whisper White card base and then layered with Calypso Coral card stock and Delightful Daisy DSP. 

The square was cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies

Look closely!!! It adds the stitching!  How cool is that!?!? 

This set comes with circles, ovals and squares!

In my opinion, this set of Framelits is a MUST for any stamper who owns a BIG SHOT!

It's like a basic in my opinion! ( and if you don't own a Big Shot–why not? That too is a basic paper crafting tool!)

The Thank You sentiment was stamped onto the Whisper White square in Calypso Coral ink. 

The daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped onto Whisper White card stock with Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight ink and then punched out with the coordinating daisy punch. 

The gold faceted gems and 5/8" burlap ribbon give this card the perfect shabby chic look.

So what do YOU think??

Wouldn't a set of these make a very nice gift for one of your friends???

Easey-peasey and made with YOUR hands and from YOUR heart!

Check out this video –you can change up the DSP with any of these!

Options, options options!

 

Any of these can be purchased 24/7 in my online store.

Hugs,

Delightful Daisy Thank You

Hi Friends,

This card just might be one of my all time favorites!

I love love love the Designer Paper and the format. These will make a lovely gift all boxed up with a pretty tag and bow!

What do you think?

 

Daisy-Delight-Stampin-Up-Delightful-Daisy-Thank-you-card

This card is made on a thick Whisper White card base for that reliable stability we expect from Stampin' Up! 

Then I added a layer of Wisteria Wonder cardstock and topped it with DSP.

To cover the seam between the two top layers I adhered those pieces to the Wisteria Wonder layer and then used 1/4" double stitched ribbon in Daffodil Delight. 

Note that I adhered it with glue dots and then wrapped it around the the back of the Wisteria Wonder layer to attached in the back. (no frayed edges, yeah!). That layer was then attached the the card base hiding those ends.

I then stamped the daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Wisteria Wonder ink onto Wisteria Wonder card stock and then punched out with the coordinating punch from the bundle.

Of COURSE I accented with some Wink of Stella and a faceted gem for a little sparkle. 

The sentiment is stamped in Wisteria Wonder too.

2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog

Hi Friends,

The day we've been waiting for has arrived! Today is the day that we can start ordering from the 2017 Holiday Catalog that you have been drooling over! I have been busy handing them out over the last month and sharing some adorable new creations using new products coming out.

2017 SU holiday catalog

You can now view the online digital PDF version too.  It's perfect for downloading to your iPad or iPhone for portable travel.  It's also great for being able to enlarge the image to see better (makes it a bit easier on the old eyes… LOL). 

Of course, if you prefer a printed copy and don't already have one, I'd be happy to make sure you get one.

3x3-cards

For today's project I'd like to share with you these adorable 3" x 3" note cards that fit into our new Mini Pizza boxes.  These little cards are made using Whisper White card stock followed by Gold Foil (or Silver Foil) cut out with the stitched shapes framelit dies, followed by a square of the new Year of Cheer DSP and then a smaller square of Whisper White card stock cut with a smaller stitched shape framelit die with a small sentiment stamped in the center.  Stampin' Up! has even included the option to purchase small envelopes to fit these 3" x 3" cards.  How fun is that?!?

Gold-pizza-box

The top of the Mini Pizza boxes is decorated with matching Gold Foil and Year of Cheer DSP cut using the Big Shot and the Layering Square Framelit dies.  This is topped with a new item – the Gold Foil Snowflakes.  A Gold Faceted Gem gives this a fishing touch!

Silver-pizza-box

Of course this also looks great in Silver with a Clear Faceted Gem.

These are just a few ideas from the great new products in this awesome new catalog!

2018-Incentive-Trip
