A Daisy Lane friend card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the Daisy Lane stamp set, found on page 23, from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog! I also embossed the So Saffron Vellum cardstock, from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock, with the Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder! This is another fun way to use the vellum cardstock on your cards and projects! One little tip that I can pass along about this new cardstock is that one side of the cardstock is smoother and slightly lighter and the other side has a slight “rough” texture and slightly darker. When you have this beautiful vellum cardstock in your hands, you will see what I’m talking about! 

To start, cut a piece of the vellum cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and emboss the darker/rough side with the Basket Weave 3D EF, which will be your base layer:

You will also need the large daisy stamp to stamp once on So Saffron cardstock with So Saffron ink and once on Petal Pink cardstock with Petal Pink ink, punching out with the coordinating Daisy Punch. The flower stem is stamped in Old Olive ink on Whisper White cardstock, “fussy cut” out, the sentiment is stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Old Olive ink and the flowers are sponged with daubers, So Saffron ink in the center and Petal Pink ink on the petals, cutting out with the die from Stitched Labels Dies, one of the Perennial Essence Floral Centers, and enough Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie into a bow, which I colored with the Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blends:

The daisy petals are layered (offset) on top of each other, the Petal Pink is underneath, the floral center is placed in the flower center, then this is adhered to the flower stem. The sentiment piece is adhered to the vellum cardstock, the flower is adhered on top and to the side of the sentiment piece, and then the ribbon bow is adhered with glue dots:

I used liquid glue behind the flower and sentiment piece on the back side of the vellum cardstock to adhere to the Petal Pink cardstock card base, which is cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Old Olive ink, and the flowers are stamped the same way I did for the front, with sponge daubers, So Saffron, and Petal Pink inks:

Isn’t this a great card that your friend would love?? This sentiment could be for a birthday or any other celebratory reason!! I just love this stamp set and cannot wait to get the coordinating Medium Daisy Punch to create more layers and colors for pretty flowers!!

Thank you card with Perennial Essence

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the Perennial Essence Suite and the new In Color Purple Posy! This suite can be found on page 107 in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and I thought paring it up with the Abstract Impressions stamp set to create a beautiful Thank You card would be perfect! I just cannot get enough of this stunning Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper! Now, Purple Posy is not a coordinating color that is listed for this DSP, but sometimes it just “comes to you” that a color might coordinate with DSP and I knew I could find a design that would pair nicely with Purple Posy.

For this card, I chose this design from the Perennial Essence DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, for the base layer:

Additionally for the card front, you will need a piece of Silver Foil Sheet that is 4” long and cut two strips using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, a 2” x 4” piece of Purple Posy cardstock, use the Leaf Punch on the Old Olive Vellum cardstock from the Perennial Essence Vellum cardstock to punch out two pieces, stamp the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out with the smallest Rectangle Stitched Framelits, a Perennial Essence Floral Center, and this flower stamp from Floral Essence stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink, then I used a sponge dauber with So Saffron ink for the center and a sponge dauber with Purple Posy ink for the rest of the flower, fussy cutting out:

To first assemble, I used a Fine Tip Glue Pen along the edge of the Purple Posy cardstock to adhere the Silver Foil border punch, adhered the sentiment, and then adhered this piece to the DSP base layer:

The leaves are adhered to the back of the flower with glue dots, the floral center is adhered to the flower center, and then this piece is adhered to the card front with dimensionals:

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

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment and flower in Blackberry Bliss ink, the flower center in So Saffron ink, and the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink:

Isn’t this a sweet card?? What do you think of the new In Color Purple Posy? It is a very soft and light purple, pairs very well with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape if you are going from light to dark.

Just a little sampling of the new Perennial Essence Suite

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the new Perennial Essence suite from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog! This suite is just stunning!! The suite includes the Floral Essence stamp set, Perennial Flower Punch, Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper, Perennial Essence 12” x 12” vellum cardstock (Old Olive, Petal Pink, and So Saffron colored vellum sheets!!), Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon, and Perennial Essence Floral Centers…aaaannnd there is a leaf stamp that coordinates with the Leaf Punch!! If you need some card and craft product updating, I highly recommend you consider this suite! It is very versatile, the DSP is gorgeous, maybe just add a sentiment set for any occasion, and you are set. Did I mention the paper is gorgeous?? Lol It really does look like it is hand painted! 

When I sat down to create a card with this suite, I chose to keep it “simple” and tired not to take away from the DSP, because this is the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP I chose to use:

To give you a little sampling of the suite, I stamped the petal on a piece of Petal Pink Vellum cardstock, first inking the stamp in Versamark ink and then Blackberry Bliss ink, heat embossing with Clear Emboss Powder, and punching out with the flower punch. I stamped the leaf stamp on the Old Olive Vellum cardstock in Versamark, heat embossed with Clear Emboss Powder, and punched out with the Leaf Punch. You will also need one of the Perennial Essence Flower Centers and enough Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon to tie around the DSP into a bow:


While Pretty Peacock is not a coordinating color listed on the DSP, I thought it paired beautifully for the 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, cardstock card base. I tied the ribbon around the center of the DSP into a bow (this ribbon is very easy to manipulate), and then adhered to the card base:

To assemble the flower, I used glue dots to adhere the petal layers together, adhered the flower center (it is self-adhesive), and used glue dots to adhere the leaves to the back of the flower:

This completed flower is then adhered to the ribbon with glue dots to complete the card front:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink, stamp the flower in Blackberry Bliss ink, and stamp the flower center in So Saffron ink:

So, what do you think of this suite?? It has a lot to offer and so many ways to be creative! Here is the make and take from OnStage to give you another sample of the suite:
