A few days ago I shared a card I made using the inside out technique. You can see it here. With that card I used Framelits to have a part on the inside show through to the outside. Today, I’m sharing a card I made with the Daisy Delight stamp set and the Daisy Punch. It’s the same technique, using a punch instead of Framelits.
Can you go wrong with a daisy card? I think not!
Design Notes for Daisy Delight Card:
Well, this was another easy card. First I stamped the daisy on a scrap of Whisper White Card Stock, then punched it out with the Daisy Punch. Next I punched a daisy on the front of the card. I added some Mini Dimensionals to the stamped daisy and slipped it onto the inside of the card through the front. Lastly, I stamped the stem and added the sentiments. Really, wasn’t that easy?

Did you know there ARE purple daisies? I just learned that. When I planned this card I thought I was being a rebel. I love the color combination in this weeks FabFriday challenge. The Daisy Delight stamp set seemed to be calling to me. Purple daisy? Turns out it was a good call.

Design Notes for Daisy Delight Card:
This was really the second attempt. The first time around, I stamped the Thank you and then the stem. Oops, the stem went right through the word Thank. Second try. Tape over part of the stem, ink up. remove tape. stamp. Perfect.
I didn’t have any ribbon in any of the challenge colors. But, I had White Organza Ribbon. It was easy to change it by sponging some Pool Party ink onto it. Isn’t that cool? Get Organza Ribbon and you have the ability to have ribbon in any color you desire!
I wanted to add something to the center of the flower and so I used the Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends marker to color a pearl. I love doing that.

Today’s card is embossed and embossed. This month’s challenge over at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday is Embossing. In addition to showing you some great samples, there is also a tutorial that talks about both heat embossing – my favorite and dry embossing – so easy! I started with the beautiful Floral Phrases stamp set for the heat embossing. I added lots of texture with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.
What do you think of the color combination? Not one of my stand by color sets but I like it. Feel free to copy.
Here’s the logo and link for the embossing challenge. You have until March 24 to enter the challenge. Give it a try!
Design Notes for Floral Phrases Thank You Card:
First, I put the Wild Wasabi card stock piece through the Big Shot with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. Next, I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock that was 2″ x 5 1/4″. I heat embossed the floral image and the sentiment, using stamps from the Floral Phrases stamp set. To get the fancy ends, I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on each end of the piece of card stock. A little Whisper White Organza Ribbon slipped right through the wholes left by the Tag Topper. When I placed the piece on the Wild Wasbi, I liked it but knew I needed just a bit more glitz. Half of a Metallic Foil Doilie and some gold Faceted Gems finished it all off nicely!

Well, I specified “The Card” as not to confuse with the movie. But, I’d guess that might not be a problem. Anyway, I finally had some time to play with the new stamp set Waterfront. I’m in love. So many ways to arrange mountains, lakes, trees, sky. And, great sentiments too. I even got to do a little masking.
This week’s challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper was “Card Maker’s Choice”. So, this is my choice.
Design Notes for Waterfront Card:
I started with the water but I think you can start where ever you want! The mountains came next and then the trees and sentiment. After I stamped the trees on the right, I thought I wanted some more trees behind the mountains. I created a mask by stamping the mountains on a piece of scrap paper and cutting them out with my Paper Snips. Next I added the tiniest bit of Snail Adhesive on the back of the mask and placed it over the mountains I’d already stamped. Finally, I stamped the trees behind the mountain. I like how I have a little space between the mountains and trees. I think it adds a bit of perspective. I did a video on masking a few weeks ago. Here’s a link to that video.
As you know, I like to add a little hint of things to come on the envelope. Here’s a picture of the inside and a peek at the envelope. I don’t want you to miss anything.
By the way, I did add some Wink of Stella to the water area. It’s hard to see in photographs but really nice when you see the card. Trust me.

Every once in a while, I look over my shelves of stamp sets and discover something that has been neglected. Pop of Paradise just popped right out at me yesterday. I needed a few thank you cards and also wanted to do a challenge, so all the stars, or flamingos, seem to be aligned.
I followed the sketch at FabFriday for this card. You should hop on over and see the other great cards there.
Design Notes for Pop of Paradise Thank You Card:
Well, as I mentioned, I had a design sketch at the ready. I knew I would use the flamingo as the main feature. (So cute.) Next, I discovered the perfect piece of Eastern Palace Designer Paper to add a layer. Gold and Dapper Denim. You can’t miss. That helped me to decide that my other color would be Dapper Denim. I thought he (or she?) might look cute holding the message in his/her beak. A little fussy cutting around the banner and that part was done. Oh, I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the banner. So easy. I needed one more element, this time Caylpso Coral. Don’t you think the Calypso Coral Ribbon from the FREE Shimmer Ribbon Pack is just right? I’m happy. the colors seemed to just work well together and so I think the card worked.
By the way, I like to try to add something to the envelope when I can. Here’s the envelope for this card with a greeting from the same stamp set.
