For your new home!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and fun card made with the Delightful Day Bundle! Recently, my beautiful mother-in-law came out to visit for a couple of weeks and her visit wouldn’t be complete without making at least one card! For her first week, we spent it in the Outer Banks of North Carolina with family and friends and then the second week we spent time in my craft room sharing tips, tricks, product information, and storage ideas! Since she had a special request to make a card for a new home owner, this was the perfect opportunity for her to use some of the new products from the annual catalog. I designed this card for her to show that you can use just a few products to make a cute and easy card in a snap!

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

For the card front, you will need:

1. A Pearlized Doily.

2. Enough Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie a bow around the DSP.

3. A scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the leaves and stem stamp in Garden Green ink, stamp the flowers in Daffodil Delight ink, and punch out with the Starburst Punch.

4. Cut a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock at 1” x 2 ¾”, use the Delightful Tag Topper to punch both ends, and stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink.

Adhere the stamped starburst cardstock to the pearlized doily and then adhere this piece to the DSP base layer:

Adhere the tag sentiment along the bottom of the doily with dimensionals and then tie the metallic edge ribbon into a bow in between the sentiment and the edge of the DSP. Note-I just cut a piece of ribbon long enough to go around the front and around the edge of the backside, tied a bow separately, and then adhered the bow with a glue dot:

This completed card front is then adhered to a Garden Green cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The inside sentiment is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is stamped in Garden Green ink, and I adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of DSP (same design as the card front) along the bottom with snail:

Isn’t this a super cute card?? You can always step this card up a bit with maybe some metallic thread, pearls, or even rhinestones! Don’t forget that you can also color those pearls and rhinestones with Stampin’ Blends to color coordinate!!

Sending you a little hello

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy way to use the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies with the Garden Lane DSP! I really liked pairing this DSP with Soft Suede and thought using the big butterfly with a small sentiment would be perfect. However, I wanted to do something a little different with the butterfly by keeping those little bitty pieces from inside the wings and give it some depth by adding layers. I will show you how I created the butterfly first and then show you how I created today’s card!

I cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock at 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, which gives you enough room to cut three of the butterflies. For the first butterfly, I had the die facing up (cutting plate, die, paper, cutting plate) when I ran it through the Big Shot so that I could keep the little pieces in place. I removed the cardstock piece, leaving the die upside down, and then used scotch tape strips to keep the small pieces in place. I was easily able to trim any excess tape (over the edge) with my snips:

I then cut two more butterflies out of the Mint Macaron cardstock and used my fine tip glue pen to adhere the layers together, placing a couple clear blocks on top to ensure the layers dry flat:

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

After the butterfly dried, I went over the outlines with my wink of stella pen and added three pearl basic jewels that I colored with Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends, stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out the sentiment with the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die and used the next size up to cut Soft Suede cardstock to layer under the sentiment, and use enough Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP layer:

I first tied the ribbon into a bow around the DSP base layer and then adhered the butterfly with liquid glue. (for me, I placed a strip of ribbon across the DSP and adhered a bow with glue dots):

I then adhered the layered sentiment pieces together, adhered the completed piece to the DSP with dimensionals, and then adhered the completed piece to a Soft Suede cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, use a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of the same card front DSP along the 4” side of the cardstock:

Is there an easier way to keep all those itty bits from the butterfly in place? Very well could be, but for me, scotch tape seemed easiest and it’s sitting right on my desk. If you have another way, I would love to hear it by commenting on this post! I almost kept this a “safe” color combo of Soft Suede, Mint Macaron, and Very Vanilla, but then I compared it with Petal Pink and I really liked it!

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 Dandelion Wishes your way

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy card made with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and Garden Lane DSP! This is another great way to combine designer series paper with a simple stamp set to create an all occasions card. What I love about the Garden Lane DSP, is that even though it does coordinate with two different suites, it is very versatile and can coordinate with so many more stamp sets. For this card, I will show you have to incorporate both stamp and paper for the inside and outside, which is super easy!

The card base is Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I stamped the dandelion puffs along the top and bottom of the card front in Whisper White Craft Ink and then set it with my heat tool. (Another option is you can heat emboss with White Embossing Powder):

For the card front, you will need this design from Garden Lane DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and cut again at 1” along the 5 ¼” side (long). You will also need enough Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP, using the 2ndand 3rdlargest Stitched Nested Labels to cut out the Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White cardstock, and stamp the dandelion stamp in Versamark ink and then in Mint Macaron ink on the Whisper White cardstock label piece, heat embossing with Clear Emboss Powder:

You will layer and adhere the stitched label pieces together, adhere this complete piece to the DSP with dimensionals, and then tie your ribbon along the bottom of the DSP. Since my bows aren’t the greatest, I cut a piece of ribbon long enough to wrap around the front, cut another piece long enough to tie into a bow, and adhere the bow with glue dots:

This completed piece is then adhered to the Crumb Cake card base, positioning in-between the stamped dandelion puffs:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the puffs along the top in Versamark and Mint Macaron inks, heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder, and adhere the 1” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Fun and easy card, right?? While it is so easy to make cards when you have a whole coordinating suite, challenge yourself to see what you can create outside the suite!

Birthday wishes with Floral Essence and Garden Lane DSP

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features new products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog! With the launch of the new catalog starting June 4th, it’s time for me to get creative and show them to you! For this card, I am using new designer series paper, ribbon, dies, and two stamp sets. If you haven’t seen the Garden Lane DSP (page 165), definitely give it a look! This DSP may have a lot of greens in it, but it was so easy to color coordinate the flower from Floral Essence with Stampin’ Blends.

For the card front, start with this design from the DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, enough Scalloped Lace Trim to tie into a bow around the DSP, and the sentiment is stamped in Garden Green ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out with the 2ndsmallest Stitched Nested Labels:

For the flower, use your Stamparatus to first stamp the flower from Floral Essence in Smoky Slate ink on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. To color the flower, first use Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends around the edges of the flower petals, color the inner petal with the Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends (avoiding the petal “veins”), I used the Light Mint Macaron again to blend in the line between the two colors on the petals, and then used Light Pineapple Punch to color in the “veins”. I then stamped the flower image again in Versamark ink, heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder, and then fussy cut out. For the leaves, I stamped the image twice on Very Vanilla cardstock in Versamark ink, heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder, colored in with Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut out:

The leaves are adhered to the back of the flower with glue dots and I used one of the largest Clear Faceted Gems for the middle of the flower:

The lace trim is adhered to the cardstock and the sentiment and flower is adhered with dimensionals:

The completed card front is adhered to a Garden Green cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, I adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of DSP to the side and stamped the sentiment in Garden Green ink:

Isn’t this a gorgeous card? While this designer series paper coordinates with the Magnolia Lane and Garden Lane Suites, I chose to just order this DSP for now so that I would have some pretty paper to play with and use other products.
