YouTube 3D Daisy Technique

It’s easy and fun making these three-tiered, 3D daisies, with a Bone Folder. My colors are from the Fab Friday challenge.

Swirling Daisies

 

Here is the Fab Friday challenge:

 

I began with the swirly, See A Silhouette Designer Paper, on a Blueberry Bushel card base.

Why not toss some daisies on there? So, I stamped petals from the Daisy Delight and Daisy Lane stamp sets in Petal Pink and Grapefruit Grove inks. Then, I cut the six rounds of petals with their punches. The two sizes of punches are in my Product List, along with their coordinating stamp sets.

 

Next, I curled the petals with a Bone Folder in a downward motion, and glued them together; two large, and the medium on top.

Click on this card, if you’d like to see a YouTube video of how I used the Bone Folder to form the daisies.

 

The leaves were made with a Frosted Bouquet die, and Call me Clover Cardstock, that I embossed with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.

 

“Happy Birthday” is from the Itty Bitty stamp set, stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink, and cut with a Merry Christmas label die.

I feel “happy” looking at the end result, so I think it makes a good “happy birthday” card.

 

Thank you for stopping by. It’s fun trying new color combinations. It might end up being one of your favorites!

Birthday Wreath

 

The sketch from Fab Friday was my inspiration for today’s card.

 

This pretty wreath of leaves is from the Shimmer Laser-Cut Designer Paper. I used a Layering Circles Die for cutting, and colored it with Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green inks. The “shimmer” is faint, but you can still see it after coloring.

 

The other foliage is from the Bouquet Bunch Die Set. I cut two branches from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, one from Noble Peacock Foil, and one from Soft Suede Cardstock.

 

The rectangle in the sketch is burlap (paper) from Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper.  

 

This “Happy Birthday” from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set is one of my most used sentiments. The font is great, and it fits perfectly in the Classic Label Punch.

For some extra sparkle, I added a bow of Copper Trim, and Iridescent Sequins.

Bright “happy”

 

The color challenge is from Fab Friday: 

 

First, I used a stamp from the Waterfront Stamp set to stamp rows of the colors on Whisper White Cardstock.

Then, I used the the letters, “h-a-p-y,” to cut “happy” from my striped paper, and layered the letters for thickness. Can you see the stamp I used from Waterfront?

 

“Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, stamped in Pacific Point Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.

 

For the background, I thought the bright letters would look great against white, and decided to emboss the Whisper White Cardstock with the Brick & Mortar Embossing folder.

 

I appreciate you visiting my blog, and it gives me pleasure to share my ideas with you. Enjoy shopping at my store, and have a happy day!

Trio of Daisies and Ferns

Today’s project is a trio of daisies and ferns from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set.

Daisies & Ferns

 

I chose Garden Green Ink for stamping the fern on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the daisy, on regular Whisper White cardstock, in three colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Crushed Curry.

 

While stamping the fern and daisies, I had the Fab Friday sketch on my mind.

 

After fussy cutting the daisies, I shaped them with my fingers, and placed them on Dimensionals atop the vertical section of ferns.  The right-hand, scalloped strip was made with a Be Mine Stitched Die and Garden Green Cardstock. The stripe on the left is a piece of  Regals 6X6 Designer Series Paper in Garden Green. 

 

The sentiment, “It’s your time to shine,” is also from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I used the same Be Mine Stitched Die to make the scalloped edges. Everything was glued on a Thick Whisper White card base, and my card was complete.

 

Thank you for visiting today!  You’ll notice from my picture of the 6X6 DSP in my Product List that the stripe isn’t there. The stripe is from the previous catalog, but you can use a different pattern, and make this card your own. Have a wonderful day!

Tropical Friendship Card

Today’s Tropical friendship card was designed with two challenges in mind.

By So Mohr for GDP and Fab Fri; Click READ or VISIT to go to my blog for details! Featuring: Tropical Chic stamp set, Tropical die set, Rectangle Stitched dies, Basket Weave embossing, Banner Triple Punch; #friendshipcards #birthdaycards #tropicalchic #tropicalcards #tropical #handmadecards #handcrafted #diy #cardchallenges

Tropical Day

 

Fab Friday for the sketch. 

Global Design Project for the colors.

 

I chose the Tropical Chic stamp set, because I could imagine it in these pretty, bright colors. I began by stamping the flower in Pineapple Punch ink on Whisper White cardstock. The Tropical die set has a die for cutting the three flowers. The set also has a die for the ferns, which I cut from Coastal Cabana cardstock. I used a Rectangle Stitched die to cut a Thick Whisper White background for the flowers and ferns, which I raised on Foam Adhesive Strips. The ferns are glued flat, and the flowers are on dimensionals.

TIP: The middle flower is on two dimensionals (stacked) for greater height. 

 

The background on the cardbase is a layer of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the Basket Weave embossing folder, and glued showing the debossed side.

I brought Gorgeous Grape to the scene with some striped 6X6 Designer Series Paper, which I cut with a Rectangle Stitched die.  The same 6X6 pack was used for the larger, dotted banner in Coastal Cabana. I cut a piece, 4″ X 1″, and used the Banner Triple Punch for cutting.

TIP:The Banner Triple Punch is great, because it gives you perfectly cut banners in three widths: 1″, 1 1/2″ and 2″. 

 

The sentiment, also in Gorgeous Grape, is from the new, Good Morning Magnolia, stamp set. It was sitting on my work table, because I just received it, and “Enjoy Today” was the right size and sentiment for this project. Don’t you agree?

The five, tiny pearls were the finishing touch.

 

This Tropical Chic Bundle is carrying over into the new catalog, which makes me very happy. I have it listed separately in my Product List, but, if you love it, buy it now for a 10% discount. After June 3rd, the stamp set and dies will only be sold separately. The bundle number is 148399.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Enjoy today!

Colorful Seasons For What Will You Stamp? Design Team

The Colorful Seasons stamp set has wonderful sentiments with lovely font. It also has beautiful blossoms, both of which I’ve used on today’s project.

Blossom Hearts

 

Here’s a close look at the Colorful Seasons stamp set, although the stamps are larger than pictured.

 

Since I’m in Valentine card making mode, I stamped the blossoms on hearts from the Be Mine Stitched die set. The three, blossom stamps, are slightly different, and I stamped them in three shades of pink: Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Petal Pink.

The hearts are on a 2″ strip of Thick Whisper White that I gave a scalloped edge with a Be Mine Stitched die. I also ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.

 

The sentiment, “Thinking of you,” is from Colorful Seasons, stamped in Black ink and cut with the smallest Rectangle Stitched die.

The card base is Thick Whisper White, topped with a panel of Petal Pink cardstock that I embossed with the Lace Texture embossing folder.

 

My inspiration for the layout was from Fab Friday.

 

I enjoyed pairing new Occasions products with Colorful Seasons for this Valentine. Scroll down to see my Product List and go to my online store for purchasing.

Please post your projects using the fabulous, Colorful Seasons stamp set in our WWYS Gallery. I can’t wait to see what you create!
