Daisy Delight for Amazing You and Cardz 4 Galz

Pretty Thank You Card Featuring #DaisyDelight, #AmazingYou, #CelebrateYou, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

The Buttons and/or Bows Challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz is now over and the cards were so wonderful! I hope you will go take a look at how everyone used their buttons or bows. We are now on to our next challenge and it’s a fun one – Black + White + One Bright Color, hosted by Sian. This is a great challenge because black and white makes any color just pop off the paper. I chose Rich Razzleberry (my favorite of the purples) and decided to use Daisy Delight for a pretty CAS (for me!) Thank You card.

My Secrets to Making This Daisy Delight Project
  • First, the daisy was stamped and punched out with the coordinating punch three times. I think the daisy looks prettiest when you stagger the layers and use dimensional adhesive between each one.
  • Also, did you notice that the daisy petals were just slightly curled with a bone folder? It just gives them that sign of life – like a real flower.
  • If you are anything like me, a plain white background just doesn’t look “finished” so I like to run the Whisper White cardstock through my Big Shot in an embossing folder. It adds texture, interest and enhances the focal image just right.
  • The “amazing” die was cut twice, in black and Rich Razzleberry, glued together with Fine Tip Glue with the black offset just a smidge. This raises the sentiment off the background and adds some drama that will add some detail to the card without overpowering it.

Thank you to all played along with our Spring Flowers challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters. By the looks of the gallery, you all were ready to bring out those beautiful flowers, too! If you haven’t had a chance to see them all, I hope you will go and take a look at all of the wonderful inspiration. We are now on to our newest challenge, Bunnies, hosted by Vickie! I absolutely love these gentle creatures and enjoy watching them in my yard. I had the perfect stamp set that is new in the Occasions catalog so I just had to ink it up. A Good Day has many sweet images to choose from and coordinate with the very unique wooden mini embroidery hoops. How cute they are together!!

My Secret to Making This Good Day Project
  • Masking: I wanted to stamp the bunny onto Whisper White cardstock but have the background in Soft Sky. So, the bunny was stamped twice, once on WW and then again on the sticky end of a post-it note. (I have masking paper but the post-it note was handy) After fussy cutting the post-it note bunny, I placed it over the WW bunny and then ran my sponge brayer loading lightly with Soft Sky ink over the WW masked bunny. When the mask is removed, the bunny is so cute and white!
