Pretty Daisies

How pretty is the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  I love the fresh look of the colour scheme of Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Whisper White. 



The daisy was made by stamping the daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set twice using Wisteria Wonder and coloured with the Clear Wink of Stella pen and Wisteria Wonder.  These were then punched out using the Daisy Punch.  The two daisy pieces were then layered together and a Clear Faceted Gem added for the flower centre. The stem was stamped using Old Olive.

The "Happy" was cut out using the Happy Birthday Thinlits and Pool Party card stock.  The word "Happy" was snipped from this piece.  The word "Birthday" is from the Tabs for Everything stamp set, this was stamped with Wisteria Wonder.

The measurements to make the card are
  • Card base - A4 cut in half then folded in half
  • Pool Party mat - 9.5cm x 13.8cm
  • Whisper White mat - 9.2cm x 13.5cm
  • Designer Series Paper - 8.9cm x 13.2 cm
  • Pool Party strip - 2.5cm x 13.8cm
  • Wisteria Wonder strip - 2.8cm x 13.8cm
  • Wisteria Wonder centre panel - 6cm x 11cm
  • Pool Party centre panel - 5.3cm x 10.3cm
  • Whisper White centre panel - 5cm x 10cm
Peekaboo Peach Bakers Twine was added across the strip behind the centre panel to finish.

For You

This is such a versatile sentiment.  It covers all occasions from birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, thank you, just about whatever occasion you need a special card for.  


I did a little jig when I saw the Hostess set Background Bits available in our demonstrator pre-order.  The script stamp is going to be well used I think.  This card has been made with the wonderful new products available from 1 June 2017.

To make the background I masked the sides of the Whisper White card stock with a Post-It Note that I tore in half to create an uneven edge.  I then stamped the script image using Versamark ink until the area was covered (I stamped it about 6 times) and then added Copper Embossing Powder and heat set.  TIP:  To get an uneven effect to the script image, brush off some of the embossing powder before heat setting.

I cased the crate idea on the card from from the Annual Catalogue. The card in the Annual Catalogue had carrots in it, but I want ed something pretty as I was giving this card to my Mum, so changed it up to flowers.  I have used the Orange Blossom stamp set for the floral display.  I stamped the flower stamp with Fresh Fig full strength then stamped it again 2nd generation.  This gives you the lighter coloured flower.  The flower centres were stamped with Basic Black Archival.

The leaves were stamped with Always Artichoke.  The stem of the filler flower was also stamped with Always Artichoke and the flower buds stamped with Powder Pink

I fussy cut all the pieces (did I hear some groans?) before arranging them in the crate.

To make the crate you will need one full piece of the crate and then one half piece of the crate, cut out using the Wood Crate Framelits. The bonus of this is that you will get one crate from one piece of the 6" x 6" Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  

A piece of doily was added just under the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Wood Word stamp set and was stamped with Fresh Fig and cut out with the matching die in the Wood Crate Framelits. The sentiment was tied to the crate using a piece of Linen Thread that has been wrapped around the crate.

The Whisper White piece has been matted onto a piece of Copper Foil Sheet. TIP: Before adhering the layers together cut out a Happy Birthday from the Copper Foil Sheet using the Happy Birthday Thinlits.  You will not even notice that you have cut out the centre of the Copper Foil Sheet.  You can keep the Happy Birthday image for another card.  I will be posting a card on how I used this image in the next couple of weeks.

The card base is a piece of A4 Fresh Fig cut in half then folded in half.


Don't forget the inside of the card.  I have added a little spray of the flowers and leaves in the bottom right corner.

Faux Watercolouring

Hi everyone, a quick a simple technique that I am calling 'Faux Watercolouring'.  I have used this same techinque on my One Sheet Wonder series of cards.

Using Shimmery White cardstock stamp and colour the flower and leaves.  I used Calypso Coral for the stamped flower with Rich Razzleberry Watercoloour Pencil and Always Artichoke with Basic Black Watercolour Pencil for the leaves. Once you have finished applying the Watercolour Pencil blend the colour using an Aquapainter. Cut them out using the Stylish Stems die cuts. The additional foliage and leaves were cut out using the Flourish Thinlits.


The Special Reason stamp set and the matching framelits are retiring at the end of May 2017 (or while stocks last). The Stylish Stems Framelits are discounted by 40% from $50.00 down to $32.40.  If you purchase the Special Reason Clear Mount stamp set for $35.00 and the Stylish Stems Framelits you will get a terrific bundle for only $67.40 AUD.
