Cheerful Pineapple Punch Daisy

 This cheerful Pineapple Punch Daisy card is a recreation of the card from last year’s In-Color Club.  With the 2018-2020 In-Color Designer Series Paper retiring soon, I am creating cards to use the last of my paper stash. I am excited for the release of new Designer Series Paper but still have my retiring favorites.  It definitely screams summer and cheerfulness.  Plus it highlights the various Pineapple Punch products.  The Daisy Delight stamp set is used to stamp the top layer of daisy petals.  It is embossed with Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The 2018-2020 In-Color Stampin’ Emboss Powder is retiring so you’ll want to place your order before it’s gone.  

Pineapple Punch In-Color products with Daisy Delight Stamp Set 

 What you’ll love with the 6″ x 6″ In-Color Designer Series Paper is the various designs that you can mix and match.  Since the colors coordinate, the stripes and polka dots blend.  With the Designer Series Paper package, you’ll receive 40 sheets with 4 each of 2 double-sided designs.  The five in-colors in the package are Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel.

Instructions and project materials for you to recreate the cheerful Pineapple Punch Daisy card is in the Tutorial Section on my blog.

Accented Blooms

Do you like to color?  The Accented Blooms set is the perfect stamp for coloring!  Since  graduation season is nearing, Congratulatory cards seem to always be in need.  So, today’s card showcases the Accented Blooms stamp set transformed into a congratulatory card.  Though the stamp set does not include a congratulatory message, it is easy to select a sentiment from another stamp set.  The Congratulations sentiment on this card is from the Lilypad Lake stamp set.  After stamping, the sentiment is cut with the coordinating die to create a banner.   Since the floral stamp resembles a field of wildflowers, a variety of Stampin’ Blends colors are chosen to color the flowers.  Notice the Whisper White edging along the card layer panel?   It is a small touch that adds additional visual interest.  Read the card details below the photo to find out were to find the edging die.

Congratulations using Accented Blooms

Card Details:
  1. Card base is Daffodil Delight cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ score at 4-1/4″ to create a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card).
  2. Stamp the Accented Blooms bouquet onto a 4″ x 4″ square of Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  
  3. Color the blooms on using Stampin’ Blends.  The Stampin’ Blends colors for this card are: Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Mango Melody, Light Balmy Blue, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light Mossy Meadow, Light and Dark Highland Heather, Light and Dark Petal Pink, and Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo.  Since the card base is Daffodil Delight, touches of the Daffodil Delight blends is colored on the centers of each flower.  Remember – blending different colors of the Stampin’ Blends creates visual interest! 
  4. With the lace edge die from the Be Mine Stitched Dies, cut two strips to add along the side edges of the 4″ x 4″ panel.  Attach to the back of the panel using desired adhesive.
  5. Use the Tailored Tag Punch to cut a tag from a scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock. 
  6. Stamp the congratulatory sentiment in the Lilypad Lake stamp set using the Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Afterwards, cut with the coordinating banner die from Lakeside Dies.  
  7. Assemble the card as follows: center and attach panel to card front.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the Daffodil Delight tag in the tag area of the blooms.  Next, use mini glue dots to attach the Congratulations banner across the Tailored Tag.  
  8. Embellish the tag with the Daffodil Delight sequins from the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins package.
Today’s Tips!
  • Mix it up with other stamps to create another design.  The beauty of the Accented Blooms set is the tag area. There are a variety of sentiments that will fit the area. This enables you to utilize more of your stamp sets for a variety of occasions.
  • Look at all of your die pieces to see if there is a die that will add a “little something” to your card.  The lace edge from the Be Mine Stitched Dies is a perfect example.

Remember to check the Last Chance retiring products list.  We’re midway through May and you’ll want to get your favorite products before they are gone!  Plus if you prefer wood mount stamps, order now as they are retiring.

Beautiful Promenade Mother’s Day Card

Since Mother’s Day is this weekend, I am sharing the Beautiful Promenade Mother’s Day Card from the latest card class.  For months, I have been wanting to make a recessed panel diagonal card.  With a recessed panel card, the designer series paper for the panel becomes a focal point.  The beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP) and it’s photo quality is perfect.  The coordinating Beautiful Promenade Bundle offered the necessary pieces to highlight the sentiment and the DSP panel. The April 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit contained the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment.  However, there are several stamp sets in the current catalogs that offer the sentiment.  Or you can stamp your desired sentiment.  

Beautiful Promenade Recessed Panel card

Also, don’t forget to embellish the envelope.  On the front, stamp the flower used on the the card on one of the lower corners.  And for a special added touch, cut an envelope liner using the Beautiful Layers envelope die. 

Project materials are listed at the end of this post.  

Card Details:

When cutting the diagonal on the Whisper White cardstock panel,  I did not measure.   I first made a diagonal cut to create the top.  Then on the bottom portion of the piece cut another diagonal.  The diagonal edges that line the Pretty Promenade DSP, are edged with strips of Blushing Bride cardstock.  

  1. Create card base using Thick Whisper White (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ score at 4-1/4″ and fold on score line).
  2. For the diagonal piece, a Whisper White cardstock layer is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ (same size as card front).
  3. A 3″ x 6″ piece of Pretty Promenade DSP is placed diagonally across card base before adding the Whisper White diagonally cut panels.  Determine layout of the pieces on the card base before using adhesive to permanently attach.  Trim the excess DSP after adhering to card base.  
  4. On scraps of Whisper White, stamp the flower from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set using Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pad.  Cut using coordinating die.  Apply Clear Wink of Stella to flower.
  5. Stamp desired sentiment using Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Use 1-3/4″ circle punch to cut.  Layer onto a 2″ circle of Blushing Bride cardstock.  Embellish with Petal Pink Rhinestone Gem.
  6. Stamp leaves on Mossy Meadow cardstock and Whisper White cardstock using Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad.  Cut using coordinating dies.  Also cut vellum leaves.  Layer leaves behind the flower using mini glue dots to attach.  

To all the mom’s – Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
