Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Birthday Card and Buying Special

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that some of you were lucky enough to have a 4 day weekend. At the end of my post today I have a little special going on, so don’t forget to scroll down.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Bundle for my card.  Here’s my card.

My design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #395.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #228.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of the gorgeous Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to a Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another strip of the Perennial Essence DSP across the center of the card front using Snail.

I cut a circle out or Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the top of the circle.  I stamped the fern image from the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set 3 times in Old Olive Ink, stamping off once, below the sentiment on the circle.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller daisy from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink twice and punched them out using the Medium Daisy Punch.  I adhered the daisies together using a Glue Dot and then adhered it to the center of the stamped circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

Using the Leaf Punch, I punched out 3 leaves from Old Olive Vellum paper from the Perennial Essence 12X12 Vellum Cardstock.  I adhered the leaves using Glue Dots under the punched daisy.  I adhered a Perennial Essence Floral Center in the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock, stamping off 3 times.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the stem stamping off 4 times.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set over the stamped image in Blackberry Bliss Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Petal Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fern image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the bottom front stamping once in full strength and then stamped off once.  I stamped the daisy image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink between the fern.  On the envelope flap I adhered a panel of the Perennial Essence DSP.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Thinking of You Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  TODAY’S THE DAY!!!  The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live at 2:00 Eastern Time today!!  I’m so excited, I can’t wait to place my order.  I have to work this morning, but I should be out just in time to be able to order.  Now of course we can order anytime after 2pm, but I just can’t wait.

In the meantime, I have a card for you today.  My Upline is doing a daily challenge for the month of June.  I’m always up for a challenge.  Today’s challenge was Take A Walk and Be Inspired By Nature.  Sometimes I just have to walk away from my craft table to find inspiration somewhere.  So, I took a walk outside.  I saw butterflies on the bushes where I was walking, so that inspired my card today.  They were little white butterflies on the green bushes with pink flowers.  I used the  Butterfly Beauty Dies as the focal part of my card.  I have to be honest with you, this looked a lot easier than it was.  I thought for sure cutting out and putting it right back in place was going to be a breeze, nope, I was wrong.   Take a look.

For my card today I joined in with Fab Friday challenge #164.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with Aud Sentiments challenge #228.   Their challenge is Nature + A Sentiment.

I started with a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and did the shaving cream technique using Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz Ink Refills.  Once my panel dried I ran it through my die cutting machine using the Butterfly Beauty Dies.  I ran a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock through the die cutting machine using the Butterfly Beauty Dies also.

The tricky part came when I had to fit the Shimmery butterflies into the Soft Sea Foam cardstock and adhere it to the Pear Pizzazz card base.  I’ll admit, it took me a couple of tries.  Once I was able to get everything in place, I carefully adhered all the pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock through my die cutting machine using the more detailed Butterfly Beauty Dies.  I carefully fussy cut the largest butterfly away from the others using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the large butterfly die to the matching one on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue in just a few spots so that the wings were raised.  On a small strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I made the strip into a banner and adhered it to the right side of my card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped one of the butterflies from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink above the dots.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink on top of the bokeh dots.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Since I had the other butterflies cut out from the larger one, I adhered them to the left inside of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wandering flower image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the envelope front in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I stamped the butterfly from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink  by the flower image.  I stamped the bokeh dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!
