Daisy Delight with Designer Series Paper

Happy President’s Day ~ I have another Daisy Delight with Designer Series Paper idea today.

Well I did not get my cards made like I wanted to yesterday.  I ended up working on some cards I needed to send out.  It took me a while to get organized and find all my supplies.  I did manage to get several of them made but I still have quite a few more to work on.  I also need to work on some other cards I need to send out.  I am hoping to finish up the ones I started yesterday and make the other ones today.  I also have to make some phone calls and I am waiting to hear from the landscaper.  I have a lot to do this week before I leave to go to Jess’ on Thursday.  Hopefully I can get everything done.

I have another Daisy Delight idea to share with you today.  I decided to use Blackberry Bliss and stamp it with Whisper White.  I stamped my image and set the ink with the heat gun.  The daisy punch was used to punch out the 3 images.  I used the bone folder and curled the petals of 2 of the flowers up and the other flower the petals are curled down.  Glue dots were used to layer the flowers together.  A piece of the Share What You Love designer series paper was added to a piece of the Blackberry Bliss.  I wrapped a piece of the Silver 3/8″ metallic edged ribbon around the top.  This panel was added to a Crumb Cake card base.  The flower was then added to the card base using dimensionals.  I added some of the Gingham Gala adhesive backed sequins.  To finish the card off I added a clear faceted gem to the middle of the flower.  Here is my completed Daisy Delight with Designer Series Paper.

Did you know punches are quick paper cutting tools? On this card the Daisy punch was used to create this pretty flower.

Daisy Delight Clean and Simple

Good Morning Everyone ~ I played with the daisy set to create my Daisy Delight Clean and Simple creation today.

Well it rained all day yesterday so I had fun making my videos.  I did not get as much done as I would have liked as I had a lot of planning to do.  I do have all my planning done so I am hoping to be able to make 6 cards today.  I won’t push it so I may not get them all done.  I also have to find some time to read some of my book for book club tomorrow night.  I haven’t even started it so it will be interesting to see how much I get read.

Yesterday was Remi’s birthday so I did a Face Time with her to sing her Happy Birthday.  When I finished she started singing it and said “Happy Birthday to me”!  It was so funny that both Jess and I laughed.  She then proceeded to read me a book and ask me how many of different items were on each page.  I had no idea as she was not showing me the page.  It was a riot.  I asked her about her gymnastics class and if she could do a forward roll, back flip, etc.  Naturally she said she could do them all.  I asked her the teacher’s name and she had no idea.  She is such a trip.

My creation today used the Daisy Delight stamp set and punch.  If you like this bundle as much as I do, make sure you check out my Exclusively Cards offer here.  I did a bonus set of cards this month using this bundle in case you did not get the Butterfly Gala bundle.  This is a great value this with all the support if you did not get the original bundle.

Well I don’t know what happened with my video but it did not record.  I have the introduction but nothing else.  I am wondering if my phone camera was full and it did not record.  I spent a lot of time yesterday deleting photos and videos I did not need.  Hopefully that should take care of the problem.  I need to get my external hard drive out and transfer all the videos I have of the house as well as the pictures to that which would also. help.  I will do my best to describe what I did.

I began by stamping the daisy using Pool Party onto Pool Party card stock.  The punch was used to punch all 3 out.  The center of the flower was stamped using Mango Medley ink onto Mangy Medley card stock.  The 1/2″ circle punch was used to punch it out.  I used a dauber to sponge around the edge using Cajun Craze.  I took 2 of the daisies and using the bone folder curved the petals up.  The third daisy had the petals curved down.  I layered the 3 daisies using glue dots offsetting the petals each time putting the one with the petals curved down on the bottom.  I then stamped the small daisy using Pool Party ink onto Pool Party card stock.  This daisy was then fussy cut out.  I used a 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ strip of Mango Medley card stock and the Subtle embossing folder to emboss it.  I added a Whisper White panel to a Pool Party card base.  The Mango Medley embossed strip was added to the lower third of the panel.  The fussy cut daisy was added to the end of the Mango Medley strip using a dimensional.  The punched daisy was then added to the card base above the Mango Medley strip.  To finish off the card a multi loop linen thread bow was added using a glue dot.  Here is the completed Daisy Delight Clean and Simple creation.

Beauty Abounds with Grapefruit Grove Foil

Good Morning Stampers ~ I have a fun card today that uses the Beauty Abounds with Grapefruit Grove Foil.

Well I did not go to Jess’.  Zoie came down with a stomach bug so she rescheduled the birthday party to next weekend.  She has been proactive in trying to prevent Remi and herself from coming down with it.  She has washed everything she can and used wipes on everything.  So far things are ok with the 2 of them.  I am hoping they do not have anything when I have to head that way next Thursday.  I have used the past 2 days to do some resting myself to get rid of the last of this cold.  I have been sleeping in and even taking a nap in the afternoon.

Yesterday I went to the house to meet the landscaper and talk about what I can do.  They have finally finished the siding and the pillar.  I went inside and they have taped everything up and have spent some time painting the trim and doors.  The tile has been laid and installed in the master bath.  I have some decorative tile around the tub and the walk in shower.  I managed to get some pictures so here they are.

I played with the Beauty Abounds bundle for my card today.  I began by stamping the spray using Mossy Meadow ink.  I then used Balmy Blue to stamp some bubbles around the sprays.  I used my Grapefruit Grove reinker and alcohol to color my Silver metallic edged ribbon.  I wrapped the ribbon around the lower portion of the panel I had stamped and then attached the panel to a Mossy Meadow card base.  Using the Beauty Abounds thinlits I cut out  several of the  butterflies using Basic Black card stock.  I also cut out the same butterflies using the Sale-a-bration Grapefruit Grove foil.  I used some Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the 2 butterflies together.  The butterflies were then added to the card base.  To finish off the card I added a bow.  Here is the completed Beauty Abounds with Grapefruit Grove Foil.

Check out how I used the Stampin' Up paper from Sale-a-bration to make my butterflies shine!

Stampin’ Up First Frost in Balmy Blue

Happy Friday Stampers ~ I have an adorable Stampin’ Up First Frost in Balmy Blue this is really quick and easy.

Today I have an appointment with my tax person.  I figured I would use the same person I have used the past couple of years again as she knows about my business and she is able to do the North Carolina taxes also.  I am not looking forward to this as I am certain I am going to owe big time.  I am not sure how the new laws will affect me but everyone I have talked to have said they didn’t do as well this year as they have in the past years.  I am crossing my fingers that I only have to pay into North Carolina.  I probably won’t know until I come back at the end of March as this gives her time to see if anything is missing and I can bring it with me then.  At least by then I should be in the house and should not have any more surprise bills from the construction.  I will be crossing my fingers from now until then.

Are you ready for my Fast & Fabulous video today?  This is number 55 in the series.

Framed Tropical Chic

Hello Everyone ~ Happy Valentine’s Day ~ I have a cute Framed Tropical Chic creation to share with you today.

Today I am headed to Maryland. Remi’s birthday is Saturday and Jess is planning a party.  It was 4 years ago on the 16th when she was born.  There was a big snowstorm that day also.  There is a possibility of snow again on Saturday and Sunday.  I am hoping the storm goes out to sea as I am planning on driving back on Sunday.  I am hoping it will be raining if there is any precipitation until I get out of Virginia and into North Carolina.  I will be watching the weather very closely.  Remi is into Minnie Mouse so I made her a Minnie Mouse card.  I can’t wait to see her face when she opens it.

I wanted to play with a framed images ideas for my card today.  I began with the Tropical Chic bundle and stamped and cut out several of the images.  I then used the 2 largest stitched squares framelits and cut out a frame using Basic Black.  I then started layering the images on, under, and around the frame on a Whisper White card panel.  When I was happy with the arrangement I attached the images using glue dots and dimensionals.  I attached this panel to a Melon Mambo card base.  To finish off the card I created a multi loop bow using the linen thread.  This was added to the frame using a glue dot.  Here is the completed Framed Tropical Chic creation.

Look at this clean and simple framed idea using the Tropicla Chic bundle!
