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!

Incredible Like You with Nature’s Poem DSP

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy alternative card with the Incredible Like You stamp set, which coordinate with the Incredible Like You Project Kit. The kit and stamp set can be found on page 21 in the Occasions Catalog and the kit creates 16 beautiful cards, has 16 envelopes, and a gorgeous storage envelope! So, you’ve created all the cards and you are now left with the stamp set…now what? Keep on creating! Lol I really wanted to make a card with Tranquil Tide, need to give the 2017-2019 InColors some love before they retire, so I chose Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam to color coordinate to give this card a soft and subtle look.

The base layer is this design from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the rest of the card front, you will need a Pearlized Doily, enough Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie into a bow around the DSP, and a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock to stamp the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink and the flowers in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam ink, punching out with the Tailored Tag Punch:

You will tie the ribbon around the DSP into a bow or if you are like me, adhere enough ribbon to go around the front and then glue dot the bow on, and then use some Snail around the middle of the doily to adhere on top of the ribbon and DSP. I adhered the sentiment on top of the doily and then added three of the largest Pearl Basic Jewels:

This is then adhered to the card base, which is Tranquil Tide cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink, and the use the three-dot stamp to stamp in Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam inks to create a background behind the sentiment:

Wasn’t that a quick and easy alternative card to make with the stamp set?? The great thing about the project kits is that it gives you what you need to make the cards, aside from the stamp set and an ink pad (or two), and this is so awesome if you are just starting out making cards!

Incredible Like You

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the new Incredible Like You stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog! This stamp set coordinates with the Incredible Like You Project Kit, but I thought today I would make a card with just the stamp set, which is a photopolymer 2-step set. I really didn’t know what I wanted to create at first, so I decided to start with the 2-step flower stamps and chose the Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove color combo. I absolutely loved how the flower turned out, so I decided to use the Calypso Coral/Grapefruit Grove/Mango Melody color combo to complete this card. Let’s get started on this great, all occasion card!

The card base is Calypso Coral, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. Using the hinge-step technique with my Stamparatus, I inked up the striped stamp first in Calypso Coral ink for the top and bottom, Grapefruit Grove ink for the next step to Calypso Coral, and then Mango Melody for the middle:

For the front of the card, you will need enough Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to tie around the base layer into a bow, this design from the 6” x 6” Wood Textures DSP that measures 2 ½” x 2 ½”, and a piece of Whisper White cardstock that measures 2” x 2”. For the flower, I stamped the outline in Calypso Coral, the full flower stamp in Grapefruit Grove, the stem and leaves in Pear Pizzazz, and the dot stamp in Mango Melody. It really doesn’t show up very well, but I used my Wink of Stella pen along the Calypso Coral outline of the flower:

To assemble the card front, tie the tulle ribbon around the base layer into a bow, adhere the squares together, use dimensionals to adhere the layered squares over the ribbon, and then adhere the base layer to the card base:

For the inside, the sentiment from this set is stamped in Grapefruit Grove and the leaves from the set are stamped along the sides in Pear Pizzazz ink:

I absolutely love card kits and the project kit that coordinates with this set makes 16 cards, but who doesn’t love seeing alternative ideas? It’s kind of like Paper Pumpkin, you want to see what others can create to inspire us!
