It’s your day with Daisy Lane!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, that is a fun birthday card made with the Daisy Lane and Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set! When I set out to create this card, I already had an idea about what I wanted to do with the daisy and leaves, then thought combining the All Wired Up background stamp and the Corrugated Embossing Folder would be perfect! I also decided to go with more fall-like colors since Fall is right around the corner!

The base layer is Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamped with All Wired Up in Early Espresso ink, and I used my Stamparatus to help getting that completed look as in the past I’ve missed a spot or two. The next layer is Calypso Coral cardstock, cut at 3” x 4”, and embossed with the Corrugated Embossing Folder:

Additionally, you will need Very Vanilla cardstock to stamp the large daisy in Calypso Coral ink two times, punch those out and two more that are blank, stamp the leaves four times in Old Olive ink and fussy cut out, stamp the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink and punch out with the 1 1/8” Scallop Punch, layer Gold Foil under the sentiment with the 1 3/8” Scallop Punch, and then one of the Perennial Essence Centers for the daisy:

To assemble:

1. Adhere two of the leaves together at the top and two at the bottom to create the base for the daisy.

2. Adhere all four daisy pieces together with liquid glue, the two stamped daisies on top and the two blank pieces on the bottom, and then the floral center. Adhere the daisy on top of the leaves.

3. Adhere the corrugated cardstock to the base layer.

4. Adhere the daisy piece with liquid glue to the corrugated cardstock and then adhere the sentiment with a dimensional.

This completed piece is adhere to an Early Espresso cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside is Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso ink, the stem is stamped in Old Olive ink, and the daisy is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink with Calypso Coral sponged on around the edges with Calypso Coral ink:

Don’t you just love the All Wired Up background stamp?? This can give your card a totally different look! I really like how the strip of corrugated cardstock accents this card so nicely!

Floral Essence, Vellum Cardstock, and Watercolor Pencils

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a bright and cheerful card made from the Perennial Essence Suite! Sometimes a card starts with just a piece of designer series paper and what better DSP than the Perennial Essence DSP? When I first received this DSP, I cut some of it up so I would have 4” x 5 ¼” pieces ready to go. Even though this DSP looks more like it was painted on, I thought I would try to incorporate making a watercolor flower. Remember last fall SU! introduced Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2? They were a “special purchase” and I thought for sure they would wind up in a catalog, but then they just disappeared….Well, they are back in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and I used a couple of these to color in the vellum flower on the card front!

I used Vellum cardstock to heat emboss the flower from Floral Essence in gold, colored the center of the flower with Crushed Curry and the outer petals with Flirty Flamingo Watercolor Pencil, using my Blender Pen to fill in the coloring. (I put a piece of Whisper White cardstock behind the flower so you could see it a little better):

For the card front, I fussy cut the flower out of the vellum, used this design from the DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, used the fourth largest layering Stitched Rectangle die to cut out of the So Saffron Vellum, and stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink, cutting out with the second largest rectangle Stitched Rectangle die (the sentiment should be in the bottom right side):

There’s a couple ways to adhere the vellum to the DSP, you can use liquid glue and a sponge to spread on the backside or you can hide snail behind the sentiment piece and use glue dots in the corners (I have embellishments that I’m using that will hide these) or if you have the adhesive sheets left over from the previous catalog, you can cut a piece and use that. I adhered the vellum to the DSP, aligning to the left bottom corner, and then adhered the sentiment across, close to the bottom of the vellum:

The base layer is adhered to a So Saffron card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I used liquid glue to adhere the vellum flower to the sentiment piece and placed a Perennial Essence Flower Center in the center. In three of the corners of the vellum piece, I used the gold Designer Elements:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is in Flirty Flamingo ink, and the flowers are in So Saffron ink:

Isn’t this a fun card?? As I was putting the card together, the vellum flower started to curl (from the blender pen), so I just used my finger to flatten it out a bit. I was so happy that SU! brought the second assortment of watercolor pencils back! Now you have more core colors to choose from, including some from the color revamp!

Delightful Day and Daisy Lane card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun birthday card featuring the Delightful Day and Daisy Lane stamp set! I just love the Mosaic Mood DSP and when I decided I wanted to create a card with this design from the it, so I set out to try and find a new color combo! Would you have ever thought to combine Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Basic Gray? Me neither!!

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

For the card front, you will stamp the big daisy stamp from Daisy Lane four times in Versamark ink, heat emboss with Clear Emboss Powder, and punch out with the Daisy Punch, cut a 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White Flax Ribbon, two of the Perennial Essence Floral Centers, stamp the sentiment from Delightful Day in Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White cardstock, punch out the sentiment with the Tailored Tag Punch, and then punch out another piece in Basic Gray cardstock to layer under the sentiment:

I used liquid glue to adhere the daisy layers together, adhered the flower center, and then adhered the layering cardstock behind the sentiment, slightly to the left:

The base layer is adhered to a Basic Gray card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, and the flax ribbon is adhered across the middle with Tear & Tape:

I used my bone folder to the flower petals to curl them a little before adhering them to the base layer and then adhered the sentiment:

After I assembled the card front, I thought it needed some embellishment, so I used one of the big and two of the small Clear Epoxy Droplets:

The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock and I used sponge daubers to ink the daisy and sentiment in Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo inks:

What a fun and cheery card to make! Did you know that the Delightful Day stamp set has a coordinating punch that you can purchase as a bundle? You can make coordinating tags in three different sizes with the Delightful Tag Topper, how fun is that??

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:
