The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Papers has gorgeous designs that have lots of spring colors that coordinate with it.  This card has the Designer Series Paper mounted on Wisteria Wonder.  The sentiment and flower are from the Daisy Delight stamp set stamped in Flirty Flamingo.watercolor daisy w logo

The daisy stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped twice in Berry Burst, then punched with Daisy Punch. A Clear Faceted Gem is the perfect touch for the center.  I used Berry Burst Ink to watercolor on a piece of the Watercolor Paper, then mounted it on Berry Burst Cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

This is one of the cards we made in the Spring Into Stamping Class this week.  The Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper made this card so quick and easy!  A strip of the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon set the card off perfectly!

Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade Parade of Colors!

The Southern Serenade Stamps Set from the Occasions 2018 Catalog just sings to me!  Such a beautiful set and paired with the Stampin’ Blends it produces gorgeous projects.

serenade 3 w logo

 

This is colored with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.  I adhered it to half of a Doily and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack, mounted on a sheet of Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  I added a piece of the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon for just the right accent.  The sentiment is from the Southern Serenade Stamp Set, then cut out with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

serenade 4 w logo

The Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combo Set just makes the flowers pop!  I used Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock and paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  The sentiment is from the Petal Palette Stamps Set.  I used the Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon for a contrast.

welcome card with logo

I entered this card in an online challenge, and I won!!  Woohoo!  Pool Party is one of my favorite colors, so that’s what I used here, as well as the Color Theory Designer Series Paper.  I used the Banners For You Stamps and the coordinating Bunches of Banners Die Set for the sentiment.

serenade pink w logo

I thought the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack provided a great contrast with the Pink Pirouette.  I used the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a little more texture.  Linen Thread is one of my favorite accents–so versatile!

 

Lovely lace and great sentiments really make this Southern Serenade Stamp Set a “not to missed” item to order!

Stampin’ Blends are incredible.  They easily make me look like an artist!  They’re available as a complete set, or you may purchase them singly or as a combo pack.  Such a great variety of colors! You really need to see, feel, touch them to see what beautiful projects they produce.

 

There’s an upcoming Class where you can do just that!

Summer in the South…

There’s nothing quite like the delights of Southern Summers!  I love the long days and warm nights, the sound of the katydids at night, watermelon and snapping fresh green beans on the front porch.  The best part of the summer for me has been visiting with the grands–ALL of them!  Being with them in TN and Maryland has sidetracked my blogs this summer, but what joy for this Nana!  A favorite part of the summer for the kiddos is….

Bike Rides!

At the Crafting on the Hill Summer Stampin’ Team Party last week, we made a card using the fantastically fun Bike Ride Bundle.  I got my first bike for my 9th birthday, and it was BLUE, so I had to make this one blue!

Bike ride with logo

  • I stamped the bike body, tires and rear mount in Pacific Point, one of my favorite Stampin’ Up colors.  Bike rims are stamped with So Saffron.
  • The handles, seat, and brake are stamped with So Saffron, but you could also use a So Saffron marker.
  • The basket is the two stamp baskets, both stamped in Early Espresso.  The base was stamped full strength, the second stamp was stamped off.
  • The flowers were stamped in Wild Wasabi, then colored with Calyspo Coral and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Write Markers.
  • The “road” and the banner are Crushed Curry from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • The sentiment is from the Birthday Delivery Stamps Set (one of my favorites!), stamped in Pacific Point.  I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut out Pacific Point Cardstock and the sentiment.
  • Adhere the strip of Color Theory DSP. Mount the tires on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Use glue dots to attach the bike body and rear mount to the tires, then attach to the card base.  Adhere the basket, then the flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • On each tire and the banner, I used coordinating Enamel Shapes.

Such a great summery card!

Here’s the Bundle I used:

Paper Pumpkin Alternate Ideas–And Watermelons!

The June Paper Pumpkin Kit was One in a Melon and it’s luscious!  It was my first experience stamping images of one of my favorite fruits.  Yummy!

Here are couple of the alternates I made:

June 17 PP Kit alternates

The July Paper Pumpkin Kit is Perfectly Picturesque and it makes some stunning cards.

July 17 pp kit tulips

I altered the mountains to look more like the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!

July 17 pp kit mountains

I used the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper–really liked how the colors coordinated.

July 17 pp kit hooray
