The Daisy Lane Stamp Set and Daisy Punches continue to be a favorite of mine.
This daisy was stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and cut with the Medium Daisy Punch. I curled the petals with my Bone Folder, glued them together, and placed the flower on a Dimensional. The center was made with seven tiny pearls, and yes, the pearls happen to be my Host Code gift for the month of March! You’ll always find my current Host Code beneath my profile photo.
Are you wondering how I made the circle? I didn’t know how I would do it, until I started! LOL! I found the largest Layering Circles Die, and cut the circle from a piece of 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock. Using this as a stencil, I attached it with Sticky Notes to an identical piece of Cardstock. Then, I filled in the circle with Pool Party Ink, applied with a Sponge Dauber. I love stenciling, because it’s so much fun to remove the stencil and see the results!
Before attaching the daisy, I stamped the stem, also from the Daisy Lane Stamp set, in Garden Green Ink.
All that remained was the sentiment, which I found in the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. I stamped “Thinking of you with all my heart” in Garden Green Ink, and used an Ornate frames Die for cutting.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches.
Here is my Host Code for March. When placing your order (50.00 minimum) there will be a box for you to type in this code, so I can send you pearls in April.

The Positive Thoughts Stamp Set has beautiful images for expressing sympathy.
Positive Thoughts Sympathy
I began today’s card with the branch, stamping it in VersaMark on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, set it with the Heat Tool, and cut it with its Nature’s Thoughts die.
I imagined the beautiful, gold branch against burlap, which I found in Pressed Petals Designer Paper. I cut a rectangle using a Nature’s Thoughts die, and backed it with Lily Impressions Designer Paper in purple. Then, I cut a 1″ strip of burlap, and backed it with Lily Impressions DSP in red.
The Lily Impressions DSP is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items for a qualifying order, and I love the deep, rich, colors on the solid side.
I used the same heat embossing method to stamp “sympathy” on the Lily Impressions DSP, and used the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die for cutting.
The three sprigs were made with a Nature’s Thoughts die and Lily Impressions DSP, glued flat to the burlap, while the branch was placed on Dimensionals.
The background is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder, atop a Thick Whisper White card base.
I added three, little, sequins as the finishing touch.
Freshly Made Sketches was my inspiration.
My Host Code gift for the month of March is Pearl Basic Jewels (140 total pearls). If you order a minimum of $50.00 in March, I will send you the Pearls in April. YAY! Plus, a $50.00 order will earn you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, like the Lily Impressions Designer Paper.
Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe and happy stamping!
Do you remember how it feels to swing? You can see the joy in this barefoot girl from the Silhouette Scenes Stamp Set.
I stamped the swinging girl in Night of Navy Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and used a Layering Circles Die for cutting.
For the background I chose Perennial Essence Designer Paper with a “dreamy” look. Don’t you love those little, floating, daisies?
Before gluing the DSP to the Thick Whisper White card base, I cut a 2” section from the left side. Next, I backed this with cardstock for thickness, and used the Banner Triple Punch to cut the nice, even, ends. Then, I raised it on Foam Adhesive Strips for interest.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Special Someone Stamp Set, which was the right font and size for the Ornate Frames Die. I stamped it in Night of Navy Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
This photo also highlights the pearls, one of my favorite embellishments, and my Host Code gift for March.
Freshly Made Sketches was my inspiration.
Since pearls are a favorite of mine, they are my gift to you for the month of March. When you order a minimum of $50.00 in March, and use my Host Code #JTDHJ36F, I will send you 140 pearls in April. Yipee!
Thank you for stopping by. Let’s make March a wonderful month!
Today’s design is all about designer paper and dimension.
The circle and “hello” strip are from Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper. The black and white pieces are from Golden Honey Designer Paper.
Honey Bee & Poppies
I used the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut the floral, focal point. Then, I used the smallest Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the three strips.
“Hello” is from the Honey Bee Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on the blue strip.
Next, I embossed the Whisper White background with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder, and layered it on a Thick Whisper White card base.
The bee was cropped from Golden Honey DSP.
Concentrating on dimension, I layered the circle and three strips on Thick Whisper White Cardstock for thickness, and placed them on Dimensionals. This angle shows the dimension.
My inspiration was from Freshly Made Sketches.

The Beautiful Moments Stamp Set has wonderful, sketched, images for a focal point. They can be colored, or simply stamped, as shown here.
I stamped the backward lady in Old Olive Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and layered her on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, giving a 1/16″ border. The floral paper is Best Dressed Designer Paper, trimmed to 2″ X 5 1/4″.
After gluing the Best Dressed DSP to Whisper White Cardstock, I embossed it with the Scripty Embossing Folder. Before gluing this 4″ X 5 1/4″ layer to a Thick Whisper White card base, I wrapped Mossy Meadow Linen Thread around it.
The sentiment, “Thinking of You,” is also from the Beautiful Moments Stamp set, stamped in Old Olive Ink.
To complete the card, I frayed the ends of the Linen Thread, and added three tiny Pearls.
The layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.

Dino hasn’t seen daylight for a while, so he wanted to come out and say, “Happy Birthday.”
Dino’s Birthday Card
I stamped Dino in Bermuda Bay Ink, because he wanted to match his favorite balloon color. He was easy to cut, using his Dino Die. The Dino Days Stamp Set and Dino Dies are shown as a bundle (you save 10%) in my Product List, but they can be purchased separately.
The balloon paper is from Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper. I used a layering Squares Die, and then the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners. Check out the punch in my product List. It’s so much fun to use this punch, I could go crazy and round the corners on EVERYTHING!
Dino wanted everyone to know he is the one saying, “Happy Birthday,” so I used the “speaking bubble” from the Special Day Die Set. The coordinating, Special Someone Stamp Set, has the perfectly sized sentiment, which I stamped in Memento Black Ink.
For the background, Dino talked me into using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder on Whisper White Cardstock. Have you seen dinosaur skin? Well, I haven’t, but Dino said this is what his skin looks like, and it ties his card together.
Dino wants to show off his card at Freshly Made Sketches.
And, Seize the Birthday, because he is a GREAT creature.
