Daisy Lane Thanks

If you are like me, you always need thank you cards. I wanted to used the Daisy Lane stamp set and came up with this card.

Daisy Lane stamp set, Birch Stamp, Thank You, Daisy Punch, Medium Daisy Punch, Well Written Dies, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

I based this card on one I received in a swap. Unfortunately, I don’t have the person’s name to give her credit. Let me know if it’s you!

 

 

Design Notes for Daisy Lane Card:

I guess I am really in love with the new In-color, Terracotta Tile. It has a touch of fall about it yet you can use it for summer. So versatile. I used Very Vanilla on this card but it goes equally well with Whisper White. I paired it this time with Old Olive.

 

The background stamp, Birch, seemed just right. I used Old Olive ink, but stamped off once to achieve a lighter background.

I added a Faceted Dot in the middle of the daisies to add just a little touch of glitz. Like it?

Looking Above the Clouds for Graduation

Do you know someone who is graduating this month? Someone that you know will be very successful in life? Then you want to make them a special card. I made such a card with the Above the Clouds stamp set and Hot Air Balloon Punch.Above the Clouds stamp set, Hot Air Balloon Punch, #GDP194, Graduation, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

I also made this card for this week’s Global Design Project challenge. Be sure to click on the banner below to check out the other great cards in this challenge.

#GDP193

 

Design Notes for Above the Clouds Card:

Well, it doesn’t get much more basic than this. Stamps, ink, paper. Well, add one punch. I stamped off some Night of Navy ink for the background clouds.The hot air balloons were also stamped off before adding the frame or outline. After I punched them out with the Hot Air Balloon Punch, I popped them up on Dimensionals.

I also stamped a bit on the inside. Some more stamped off clouds and one of the great sentiments from the set.

The envelope also got a little stamping love.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Meets Oh So Eclectic!

I’m baaaaack! I know it has been a few weeks since I showed you a card for one of the men in your life. But, I’m back! This week the card will feature some of the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and stamps from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Oh So Eclectic stamp sets.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous, masculine card, stamping off, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Design Notes for Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card:

Are you surprised that I would use paper from a package called “Floral Romance”? It’s a great package of paper with two beautiful vellum papers and some lovely prints. The one I used today just seems to work for anyone. The reverse side is truly perfect for men as well. Here, I just flipped the Designer Paper and switched the colors.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous, masculine card, stamping off, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

This card is just a happy series of layers on a Sahara Sand base. First, a piece of 2″ x 5 1/2″ Floral Romance Designer Paper, then a mat of Mossy Meadow. The leaves on the Very Vanilla piece were stamped once then stamped two more times without reinking. You know that’s called stamping off. A really simple technique but one that packs quite a nice look.

Petal Palette for Global Design Project

I resisted the very strong urge to make a Christmas card. This week’s challenge over at Global Design Project is a color challenge, one of my favorites. The colors very politely yelled “Christmas”! But, I need some thank you cards. So thank you cards it is!

Petal Palette stamp set, Petals & More Thinlits, Stamparatus, Wink of Stella, Blender Pen, Thank you, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

 

Just click on the image below to go over to Global Design Project website to see more projects using this wonderful color combination.

Design Notes Petal Palette Card:

This is a color combination that can’t miss. I think you can see how I felt a Christmas card would be perfect with these colors. But, I restrained myself! Time for the Stamparatus. I only inked the “Thank You” stamp once as I moved down the page using the hinge technique. I added a column of dots on the card stock then added some on the Crumb Cake card base to tie it all together.

Next, I stamped the flowers with some Crumb Cake ink. Then, I used a Blender Pen and ink to color in the flowers and leaves. No fussy cutting needed as i was able to use one of the dies from the Petals and More Thinlits Dies set. Finally, I popped those flowers up on Dimensions, layered and I was done. (Measurements for the layers: Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, Tranquil Tide – 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and Merry Merlot – 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ ) Oh, to finish it off, I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers.

It’s a Sheltering Tree Kind of Day

The day I made this card, it was rainy and windy. I stamped the tree from Sheltering Tree without any leaves to reflect the weather!  A friend recently lost his grandmother and I wanted to make a special card for him. Don’t you think the trees are appropriate for a sympathy card?

Sheltering Tree, Timeless Textures, Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper, Everyday Label Punch, stamping off, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

While I made this card with a masculine appeal in mind, I think you could send it to anyone.

Design Notes for Sheltering Tree Card:

The central image, the trees, were stamped in Soft Suede. But, did you notice that some are darker than others? For the tree on the right, I stamped the image directly onto the card stock. For the other two trees, I stamped off. That means, I inked up the stamp, stamped on a piece of scrap paper than stamped on the card stock. This really easy technique gives some depth to the images. You can stamp off once or even two times for a great effect. Here’s the same tree stamped off two times.

For the card I made, I overlapped the trees to give the effect of a forest.
