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.

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.

Daisy Delight Thank You Card

Hi Friends,

This week I'm celebrating this beautiful Daisy stamp set and corresponding Delightful Daisy DSP!

Today, Wednesday and Friday you will see some very pretty ideas!

Make sure you check back each day to see what I've been doing!

OK — I might be a bit "old school" but I firmly believe in sending written thank you notes. (and btw, hand written notes are GAINING in popularity once again!!! YIPPEE)

I find special delight in a handmade card delivered by the postman. (I LOVE going to my mailbox, opening the cover and FINDING a DECORATED ENVELOPE! I KNOW it's a special note from a SPECIAL someone!!!!)

I just love this bright and cheery card and can imagine it bringing a smile to someone's face when they open it up.

Thank-you-daisy-delight-delightful-daisy-sampin-up-card

This handmade Thank You card was made on a Crushed Currey card base and layered with Night of Navy card stock with Delightful Daisy DSP over that. 

The Daisies from the Daisy Delight stamp set were stamped in Crushed Curry ink onto Crushed Curry card stock and punched out with the coordinating punch, attached together with glue dots and then attached to the card front and accented with a faceted gem in the center. (and of COURSE I just HAD to add some Wink of Stella to the petals!)

A simple "thank you" onto a strip of whisper white is easily flagged at the end using the triple banner punch.

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper Makes for Quick and Easy Cards

Hi Friends,

Do you ever find yourself in need of a card with not much time to make one?  Here is a simple layout that can be using in a variety of colors for a variety of occasions. These cards are from a class that I did last month.

Sympathy-DSP-lavender
This card is made using the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper layered onto Pear Pizazz and Whisper White card stock on a Pool Party card base. Happy Birthday was stamped in Night of Navy ink. A little stamping with Pool Party ink and a small flower adds to the sentiment on the card front and makes the envelope coordinate nicely. A pretty bow in Pool Party Bakers Twine finishes it off.

Thank-you-DSP-yellow
This card is made using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper layered onto Old Olive and Whisper White card stock on a Daffodil Delight card base. The 5/8" burlap ribbon goes great with the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the 1/4" old olive ribbon brings it all together.  The small flower from the Daisy Delight stamp set stamped in Daffodil Delight makes the set.

Sympathy-DSP-lavender
While we hope we never need a sympathy card, we occasionally do. This card is made using the Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper layered onto Pool Party and Whisper White card stock on a Wisteria Wonder card base. A sentiment in Night of Navy ink and some Pool Party flowers on the envelope finishes off our stamping and the pool party ribbon gives our card a finished look.

I encourage you to give these a try. Any of the items used in these cards can be purchased from my online store 24/7.  You can of course always contact me for any assistance you may need.  Keep an eye out for more classes coming up, I hold several a week at my home for those who can attend and offer a "to-go kit" for those unable to attend.

Hugs,

Barbara
