Create a daisy birthday card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun daisy birthday card using the new Daisy Lane stamp set! Since the birth flower for the month of April, I thought this card would be perfect not only for a birthday card, but to also give you a little sneak peek at the new Daisy Lane stamp set! If you are familiar with the Daisy Delight stamp set, the Daisy Lane set is completely different. Not only is the stamp set a cling stamp set (Daisy Delight is a photopolymer), but the whole style is different. However, it does coordinate with the Daisy Punch, but it also coordinates with a new Medium Daisy Punch! I did receive the Daisy Lane stamp set at OnStage, but unfortunately, we are not able to order the Medium Daisy Punch right now, so fingers crossed it will be orderable next month when demonstrators can preorder select products from the Annual Catalog before it goes live on June 4th! I’m mixing it up for today’s card, which includes products from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

The base layer is Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Basket Weave TIEF:

The next layer is this design from the Garden Impressions 6” x 6” DSP. I first cut 1 ½” off one end and then cut this piece in half so you will have two pieces at ¾” x 6”. For the 4 ½” x 6” piece, cut this piece at 3” along the 6” side, which will give you two pieces at 3” x 4 ½”:

For the rest of the card front, I used the Happy , Birthday thinlit on a piece of Gold Foil Sheet, stamped the stem in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White cardstock and “fussy cut” out, stamped the large daisy on Whisper White cardstock in Versamark, heat embossed in White Emboss Powder, used a sponge dauber to color in with Daffodil Delight ink, and then used the Daisy Punch to punch out the embossed image and punching out two additional pieces in Daffodil Delight and Whisper White cardstock. **I used Sizzix Adhesive sheet on the back of the Gold Foil before cutting:

To layer the daisy pieces together, I used liquid glue to adhere the Whisper White to the Daffodil Delight, and then adhered the embossed daisy to the Whisper White cardstock. Each layer is slightly off, so when all three pieces are adhered, you can see them peeking out. I then used the largest Gold Faceted Gem in the center:

To assemble the card, cut a piece of So Saffron cardstock at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score at 4 ¼”, adhere the embossed cardstock, and then adhere the DSP:

For the die cut sentiment, I found it easier to adhere this piece first before the daisy pieces, which I used the edge of the embossed cardstock as a guide. I used Sizzix Adhesive Sheet as my adhesive for this, but you can use liquid glue:

I used glue dots to adhere the stem, only on the right side, which will be on the DSP, and also used glue dots to adhere the daisy flower to the DSP. **If you notice the petals are slightly up versus completely flat, I used the large stylus end of my Take Your Pick tool around the center of the daisy towards the petals, with my pierce mat underneath:

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Incredible Like You stamp set in Granny Apple Green ink on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock and then adhered the ¾” x 6” piece of DSP along the bottom, snipping off the excess:

Doesn’t this card just make you think of Spring?? The basket weave, the daisy, or the light and soft colors used, this card is sure to brighten someone’s birthday!

If the Happy Birthday thinlit, Sizzix Adhesive Sheets, or the Garden Impressions DSP is on your list, better order it soon as both of these items are on the retirement list and are only available while supplies last!

Product List

Having fun with the new Come Sail Away Suite!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features products from the new Come Sail Away Suite from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog! As a demonstrator, it is very exciting to attend an OnStage event because not only do you receive your very own copy of an upcoming catalog, get to see upcoming new products first hand, but are also able to purchase select products! So, when I saw the Come Sail Away Suite, this was a MUST on my list! This suite includes the stamp set, dies, designer series paper, baker’s twine, trinkets, memories & more card pack, and 3D embossing folder, which I was able to purchase everything except the embossing folder. If you are looking for a “manlier” themed suite, this is perfect! This stamp set is also one of the new DistINKTive sets, which I just love! The first card I chose to make with this suite is actually a simple birthday card, which is perfect for someone who loves lighthouses.

I first started with a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and stamped the lighthouse image in Night of Navy ink. I then cut the lighthouse with the coordinating die, which is part of the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss product line. What’s the difference? The new dies “hug” the edge of the stamped image, making it easier to line up:

For the base layer, I cut this design from the DSP at 4” x 5 ¼” and then cut this design at 1 ½” x 5 ¼”:

For the rest of the card front, I cut a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock using the third largest Stitched Rectangle Framelit, used my aqua painter with some Balmy Blue ink to watercolor the background, the cut-out lighthouse, and I braided the baker’s twine to make it look like a rope, then tying the anchor trinket at the end:

To assemble the card front, adhere the two pieces of DSP together and then adhere to a Night of Navy cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The lighthouse is adhered with dimensionals on the watercolor washed piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock and the anchor is adhered with mini dimensionals. I cut one mini dimensional in half and then cut in half again, which will hide the dimensional behind the anchor. I used dimensionals on the back of the Thick Very Vanilla piece, using one to secure the other end of the baker’s twine around the corner of the cardstock. I then used a glue dot to secure baker’s twine in place. Before I adhered this completed piece to the card front, I thought it needed just a little sentiment, so I used “Happy Day” from Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

For the inside, I cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings and the anchor in Night of Navy ink:

What do you think?? Don’t you just love this suite?? Even though I didn’t use it, the memories & more card pack not only comes with 50 double sided cards in two sizes, laser-cut specialty card, but also sticker sheets! So, even if you are on the fence about the sentiments from the stamp set, you can always change it up using one of the sentiments from the four sheets of the memories & more card pack! 

The program that I use for showing you the products used is not updated with the Come Sail Away Suite, so I took pictures of these amazing products:

Atlantic City OnStage Recap!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a recap of my trip to OnStage in Atlantic City! Whether it’s once or twice a year, I just love meeting up with my fellow Team Stamp It Demonstrators and having a blast catching up and seeing all the wonderful new products from the new catalog! This OnStage was extra special as our upline and team leader, Tami White, demonstrated her million-dollar stamp set, Capture the Good! There are so many new products and luckily I was able to take pictures of it all to share with you today, so let’s get started!

This stamp set is one that I received from the Prize Patrol! It is actually not available in the Annual Catalog, but is available in a special brochure that Stampin’ Up! with be releasing soon:

This stamp set is one that we all received in our bag at check in! Not only does it coordinate with the Daisy Punch, but there is a new Medium Daisy Punch that will be available in the new Annual Catalog!

This 12” x 12” Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP was also received from Prize Patrol! I cut the pieces down so you can see the front and back of the DSP, but what makes this a Specialty DSP is that one side is embossed (or raised) with a gloss. The coordinating colors for this paper are Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, and Very Vanilla. Here is one piece that I held at an angle to give you a better view:

The new 2019-2021 InColors are: Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, and Purple Posy. While they are more muted colors, they really are lovely colors that you may appreciate more once you have them in hand. I just received my pre-order and so I did a quick color combo to help you see how they coordinate with our existing colors:

The Come Sail Away Suite is my #1 must have! I was able to order everything from the suite, except the embossing folder. Below is my make and take and pictures of the entire suite:

The Perennial Essence Suite is another must have! Between ordering and snagging products from OnStage, I have this entire suite and can’t wait to show you this beautiful suite! Below is my make and take and pictures of the suite:

The Bird Ballad Suite is another beautiful suite with stunning DSP and adorable coordinating trinkets! I limited myself to two suites and InColors (it was really, really hard lol), but there are items from this suite that are on my list! Below is my make and take and pictures of the suite:

The Follow Your Art suite is so stinking adorable! It even has coordinating washi tape with the Stampin’ Up logo! How cute is that!! There is even an embellishment kit and embossing folder! Below is my make and take and pictures of the suite:

The Noble Peacock Suite is a must on my list! Remember Beautiful Peacock from SAB last year? It’s like that, but so much more! Here are pictures I was able to take and cannot wait to order this suite:

Below are the rest of the products that I was able to take pictures of and the product shares that the presenters from Atlantic City made:

We even got a sneak peek of Paper Pumpkins May 2019 kit, the “Shelli” kit! You can see more about this kit here and you need to be signed up by May 10thto receive this kit. Below is my make and take:

So, lots of exciting new products and good times had by all! I can’t wait to share my creations with you next week from these new products!
