One Sheet Wonder Daisy Lane

Good Morning Everyone ~ Today’s share is a One Sheet Wonder Daisy Lane idea.

Yesterday was a very laid back day.  Jake had a rough night the night before so Michaela and Josh were afraid he was coming down with the flu.  We were over to Rose and Gary’s on Friday night for dinner and that night Rose came down with the flu.  So far he had not come down with it so we are crossing our fingers he does not get it.  We can tell in the evening when his medicine is wearing off as he gets very fussy.  Hopefully he will even out soon.  Both Josh and Micheala are very gentle and patient with him.  I am so impressed with their parenting skills.

Today I am sharing the third card from the One Sheet Wonder I created.












After I created the sheet I cut it apart into 4 panels.  I then used each panel for a card front.  This one is another of those panels.  I took the panel and decided which way it was best suited ~ portrait or landscape.  For this one I opted for a landscape layout.  The sentiment came from Butterfly Gala and I stamped it in Grapefruit Grove.  A bow was added to the top of the panel using the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon.  The panel was then mounted onto a Grapefruit Grove card base.  Here is the completed One Sheet Wonder Daisy Lane creation.

Using stamps to create a collage is a great way to extend your stamps. Check out the card front that is a One Sheet Wonder Daisy Lane idea.











Here are some other One Sheet Wonder ideas.  This card uses some designer series paper for a great All Occasion card.  This card is an idea for a masculine one sheet wonder idea.  This Christmas idea is a great idea for using scraps to create a One Sheet Wonder.

First Frost All Occasion Idea

Good Morning Everyone ~ I played with the First Frost stamp set for my First Frost All Occasion Idea today.

Yesterday was a low key day.  We did not go anywhere but each of us took a nap.  It was great to take a short nap.  We did watch the Chiefs and Texans.  Which was a good game.  Michaela is not a football fan so we did not watch the other game.  That is fine as I checked the scores online to see how it was going.  Last night Jake had a rough night.  He had a lot of gas.  The medicine is working as he only fussy last evening so it will be a few more days before his stomach is settled down.

My card today is based on a layout I saw online.  The card I saw used die cut doilies and I knew I could use some of the pearlized doilies in place of the die cuts.  I wanted some simple dsp for the background so I went looking at what I have and found a piece of Perennial Essence dsp that would work.  I mounted it onto a panel of Old Olive and then attached it to a Whisper White card base.  I took the 2 pearlized doilies and added them to the card front so they were staggered.  Then I used the First Frost stamp set and stamped a bunch of large and small flowers as well as some sprigs from Whisper White card stock and vellum.  Once I had all the elements cut out I arranged them onto the card front .  When I was happy with the layout, I added all the elements using Glue dots, Multipurpose Liquid glue, and dimensionals.  For the final touch some rhinestones were scattered around the front of the card.  Here is the completed First Frost All Occasion Idea.

There are lots of sets which are great for All Occasion cards. Get the details for the First Frost All Occasion Idea creation.

Here are some other ideas for the First Frost stamp set.  This card uses some of the beautiful retired Feels Like Frost designer series paper.  This idea is a clean and simple one using some great dsp.  This set is also great for one color wonder ideas also.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I only have 2 days left before I leave to go back to Maryland.  I am going to miss my time with Jake.  I am not sure when I will be back but hope I can come back later this summer.  Have a Marvelous Monday and did you like the First Frost All Occasion Idea?




10 Minute Sponged Card

Hello Stampers ~ are you ready for my quick and easy 10 Minute Sponged Card idea?

Well we stuck close to home yesterday as everyone was tired and Jake was out of sorts.  It was good to be home and relaxing as I was able to get several posts completed since I only have a few days left here in California.  I want to have my post scheduled through Thursday so I can then work on the days after that once I get back to Maryland.  The girls will keep me pretty busy so if I take Thursday and work on posts I can get them ready for you ahead of time and not be scrambling at the last minute to get them completed.

I decided to C.A.S.E. the catty again with today’s card.  This time I want looking at the Occasions Catalog.  I found a quick card on page 37 of the Occasions Catalog.










I thought this would be a fun card that was perfect for All Occasions so I set about making it.  Here is the video showing you how I created the 10 Minute Sponged Card.




While my card is a little different than the one in the catalog, it did give me a starting point which is often the area we all seem to struggle with.  Here is the photo of my creation.

Sponging can be used to create a great background. Check out the video for this 10 Minute Sponged Card which is a quick and easy idea.

Sponging was used to make a great card front for my 10 Minute Sponged Card idea. Get the details from the video.











I have used sponging on other cards I have created.  This idea creates a masculine seaside card.  For this card I sponged the stamp and then used it to make a pretty All Occasion card.  This card uses some sponged card stock to use with some dies for the focal point of the card.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am hoping to watch the football games today but it will depend on whether the TV in my room gets the games or not.  I am crossing my fingers!  Have a Sensational Sunday and let me know what you think of my10 Minute Sponged Card idea.




#ShopYourCraftStash Beautiful Day

Hello Everyone ~ I had fun with today’s #ShopYourCraftStash Beautiful Day creation.

We had a great dinner at Josh’s parents last night.  I don’t know if we will be doing anything today or not.  A lot will depend on Jake and how he is feeling.  He has good days and bad days.  The doctor said it will take a week to a week and a half for the medicine to help his reflux.  He has improved some so hopefully by the weekend he will be much better.  He is such a delight when he does not have tummy issues and loves to snuggle.  I will miss his snuggles when I leave next week.

I saw this layout somewhere and I don’t remember where.  I knew I wanted to try it.  I began by #ShopYourCraftStash  for my dies and embossing folder.  The card base is Basic Black.  I took a panel of Crushed Curry and embossed it with the Hexagons embossing folder.  I determined how much space I needed for my sentiment and then cut the embossing folder following the lines.  This piece was attached to my card base using Tear & Tape.  The sentiment was stamped onto the bottom of the card front using Whisper White ink and then embossed using White embossing powder.  I used the card front to determine where to place the other piece of the embossed Crushed Curry using Tear & Tape.  The extra was then cut off.  Using the Detailed Dragonfly dies and Basic Black card stock I cut out the bees.  The bees were then added to some scraps of Crushed Curry and trimmed around the die.  The completed bees were added to the card front using dimensionals.  Here is the completed #ShopYourCraftStash Beautiful Day creation.

Don't have the new bees bundle yet? Pull out your Detailed Dragonfly dies to create this fun #ShopYourCraftStash Beautiful Day card.

Fast and Fabulous Swirly Frames

Hello Everyone ~ The catalog was the inspiration for today’s Fast and Fabulous Swirly Frames card.

Well I went and had them look at my iPhone and laptop yesterday.  As it turns out they found a lot of dust in the connection on my phone.  Once they cleaned that out it worked fine.  Now to remember that next time it starts acting up.  After that we did a little shopping and Michaela got a new top.  She needs some clothes as everything she had was professional and she needs some casual clothes.  We did not stay long as she forgot the diaper bag and so we came home so she could feed Jake.  We then had a relaxing afternoon watching Hallmark movies.  I don’t think we are going anywhere today other than dinner at Josh’s parents house.  I will be working on scheduling some blog posts so I can get ahead.

For my Fast & Fabulous creation today I used an idea from the Annual catalog.









I love showing you how you can use sets you have to create cards from the annual catalog.  Here is the video showing how I used the card on the bottom of page 117 of the Annual catalog.




Here is the photo so you can see the layers.

Adding layers adds lots of interest to your card. Check out this Fast and Fabulous Swirly Frames card that has lots of layers.
