A Daisy Delight Thank You Card for the Crafters Cafe Challenge

By Debbie Mageed, Daisy Delight, Thank You, Stampin Up

 

We sure enjoyed your very wonderful cards for our last challenge. It’s always great to bring out our forgotten embellishments and who doesn’t love a tic-tac-toe challenge?! We have another great challenge for you, Embossing, Wet or Dry. I couldn’t pick one, so I did both! 🙂  This card was absolutely great to make! Using Daisy Delight for the elegant sentiment, I can’t wait to send this card to my family after my visit next week.

It’s All in the Details
  • My card started by sizing and printing the image onto Whisper White cardstock.
  • My card base used:
    • Soft Suede 5 1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″
    • Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and dry embossed with Pinewood Planks TIEF
  • Soft Suede was cut with the Makers Mart Die Cut, then wet embossed on the edges with Copper Embossing Powder for a little elegance
  • The image was colored with Stampin’ Blends, then cut down to size. Old Olive cardstock was cut to layer underneath the image. Once adhered together, I popped them up on mini dimensionals.
  • The sentiment was wet embossed with Copper Embossing Powder then cut with a framelit from Chalk Talk collection.
  • Copper 1/4″ Trim was made into a triple loop bow and adhered to the corner of the image. Then, the trim was pulled apart, cut to fit the card front and adhered to the card front.
  • The leaf was made using the triple embossing technique: The leaf was cut, covered with VersaMark, then heat embossed with a VERY thick covering of Copper Embossing Powder. (TIP: cover the emboss powder with wax powder unless you love emboss powder all over your craft table!) Once dry, I covered it again with embossing powder, heat embossed then stamped the detailed leaf stamp (covered with VersaMark) to pick up the leaf details. Not very satisfied, I repeated this but used Early Espresso Embossing Powder and got a big surprise with the results. I’m not sure if I did something wrong but honestly I really like the results!
  • The leaf and sentiment were adhered together with a mini dimensional and then both were adhered with mini-dimensionals to the card base.

Carry On with the Happy Celebrations with Stampin’ Up!

I hope you all had a great weekend – I sure did! My house was full of kiddies till Sunday afternoon when my youngest went back to college. I wiped my tears and RAN to my craft room, since that’s where I can enjoy being by myself. With my kitty, Bella, asleep in her little bed on the corner of my craft table, I set out to make a cupcake birthday card for the Cardz 4 Galz challenge. It sounded like so much fun and I was ready for something non-holiday for a change.  I dug into my supplies and came out with Birthday Memories designer paper, Cycle Celebration, Happy Celebrations and Carry On stamp sets. They sure make an adorable card, don’t they?

It’s All in the Details
  • Card began with:
    • Early Espresso cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″
    • Very Vanilla cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″
    • Bundle of Love Specialty DSP: 5 1/8″ x 5 1/8″
    • Corners on Very Vanilla and DSP were rounded and then layers were adhered together
    • Early Espresso Seam Binding Ribbon was used to make a bow then adhered to those layers before all were adhered to the card base
  • The Birthday Memories DSP was cut with the Die Cut, then the little girl was cut with the coordinating Die Cut along with white craft foam so I could pop her up. Then, the Nestabilities Die Cut was used to cut out Early Espresso cardstock. These were adhered to the card base, then little pearls were placed onto the die cut piece.
  • The sentiment from the retired Cycle Celebration stamp set was stamped twice, once in Early Espresso and Blushing Bride. They were punched out with placed on the card base with dimensionals.
  • I was going to use the little dog that coordinated with a thinlit but the image was facing the wrong way! So, I cut out the one facing the other direction and popped her up with dimensionals.
INSIDE
  • Layers of Blushing Bride (5 1/4″ x 5 1/5″) and Very Vanilla (5 1/16″ x 5 1/16″) were cut and adhered to the inside of the card.
  • “Celebrate” from Happy Celebrations was inked up in Early Espresso and stamped. Then, the “Eat the Cupcake” was also inked up and stamped.
  • The little cupcake from Carry On was sponged with Early Espresso and Blushing Bride with sponge daubers and stamped. This card was such fun to make! I hope you will
