Smile when it’s your time to shine!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a great card combining the Daisy Lane stamp set and Garden Lane Designer Series Paper! This DSP is perfect when you want a simple card with little stamping. I chose to use Mossy Meadow as my card base because I felt it really made the other colors in the DSP “pop” and I was able to create color coordinating ribbon with Stampin’ Blends.

The base layer is this design from the Garden Lane DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

You will also need for the card front a Pearlized Doily, the sentiment heat embossed in silver on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the smallest Rectangle Stitched Framelits, Soft Sea Foam cardstock cut out with the largest Layering Square Framelits and then embossed with the Tufted DTIEF, and enough Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie into a bow, colored with the Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend Pen:

I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the doily to the embossed square, turned it 90 degrees to adhere the sentiment to the middle, and then adhered this to the DSP base layer with dimensionals:

I then tied the ribbon into a bow around the bottom of the DSP and then adhered to the Mossy Meadow cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½” (it is easier for me to color a couple pieces of ribbon, tie one into a bow, adhere the other piece around the front of the DSP, and then adhere the bow with a glue dot):

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock in Mossy Meadow ink, the flowers are first stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink and then I used a Sponge Dauber with Mossy Meadow ink to color the middle, and I adhered a ½” x 4” piece of the same DSP design as the front along the bottom:

Wasn’t this a fun and easy card to make? To me, this DSP is perfect for using sentiment stamps alone with it and pairs easily with Whisper White and just about any of the Neutrals for your card base layer. This is such a simple and easy card layout that you could use with any designer series paper.

Sending you Butterfly Wishes

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the Butterfly Wishes stamp set from the 2019-2020 catalog and the new In Color Pretty Peacock! This beautiful and distinctive cling stamp set can be found on page 18 in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and it also coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch! So, if you love “all things butterfly” then this set is a must on your shopping list! I also wanted to show you how Pretty Peacock “plays well” with others and paired it with Mint Macaron and Gray Granite to create this beautiful and easy card.

To start, your card base is Pretty Peacock cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, the base layer is Mint Macaron cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and then a piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut at 2” x 5 ¼”:

To create the card front, ink up your Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder (formerly known as Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) with your Pretty Peacock ink pad, and emboss the Mint Macaron cardstock base layer. You will stamp the tree branch and butterfly stamp in Gray Granite ink on the Whisper White cardstock, stamp the biggest butterfly stamp in Pretty Peacock ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, punching out with the 2” Circle Punch, and then punching out a layering piece with the 2 ¼” Circle Punch in Pretty Peacock cardstock. You will also need enough Gray Granite Texture Weave Ribbon to tie around the base layer into a knot:

To assemble, adhere the stamped Whisper White cardstock strip to the embossed Mint Macaron base layer, layer and adhere the punched circle pieces together and use dimensionals to adhere on top, and then tie the texture ribbon into a knot along the bottom of the embossed cardstock:

This completed piece is adhered to the Pretty Peacock cardstock card base and then I added some Wink of Stella to the circle layered butterfly:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the same small butterfly from the card front in Gray Granite ink and then stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink:

Quick and easy card, right?? This is a perfect sentiment to use for any celebration! What do you think of Pretty Peacock? I just love this color and if you are wondering how this compares to Tranquil Tide, Tranquil Tide is more of a green and Pretty Peacock is more of a blue when compared side by side. Soft Sea Foam and Mint Macaron are great coordinating colors to pair Pretty Peacock with.

Congratulations card with Sailing Home

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a great congratulations card using the new Come Sail Away Suite! Whether it’s a graduation, retirement, or another achievement, this suite is perfect for the occasion! This card is also perfect to give you a sneak peek at the upcoming new InColor, Seaside Spray, by replacing the listed coordinating color Balmy Blue. I mean, Seaside Spray just has to coordinate with the Come Sail Away Suite just because of the name, right?? Lol

For the card front base layer, I used this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

Additionally, you will use the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s twine to create a “rope” (directions below), the ship’s wheel trinket, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the 1 ½” Punch, use the coordinating framelit to cut out of Night of Navy cardstock, stamp the smaller sailboat in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating thinlit, and then to create background for the sailboat I pressed a clear block onto the Seaside Spray ink pad, spritzed the block with water, pressed the block onto Whisper White cardstock, and then cut out with the 4thlargest Rectangle Stitched Framelit. ***TIP-you can use your heat gun to dry out the paper and prevent it from curling up from the water:

To create the “rope”, I cut a 10” piece of the baker’s twine, folded it in half, and then tied it into 3 knots. I used my snips on the end with the loop to even out the twine length on the ends and then used my fingers/nails to “fray” the ends:

To assemble the card front, first adhere the Whisper White rectangle inked cardstock at an angle onto the DSP base layer. Adhere the sentiment onto the Night of Navy cardstock, adhere the ship’s wheel trinket with glue dots, and then adhere this piece and the sailboat with dimensionals. The baker’s twine is adhered with glue dots and then I stamped the birds in Soft Suede ink. This completed piece is adhered to Seaside Spray cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, stamp the sailboat in Soft Suede ink, and then I used my Aqua Painter with Seaside Spray ink to color in around the sailboat:

Isn’t this a great congratulations card?? It was so easy to create the background for the sailboat by just using a clear block, a stamp pad, and a spritzer with water! You can use this with any color! I usually will use my ink refill bottle and a drop or two directly on the clear block, but I haven’t ordered mine yet, so pad to block is the perfect solution!
