Christmas in July

Supplies: Paper: cherry cobbler, Gina K white  Accessories: sequins, Poppystamps eyelet stitches, Sizzix embossing folder, Tutti Frutti Merry Christmas

The CAS challenge on SCS is Christmas in July!  It is always great to have some Christmas cards made before the holiday season.  For this card I die cut the edge with the eyelet stitches die.  Then I partially embossed the corner of the main panel.  There were snowflakes on the opposite corner of this embossing folder as well.  I glued down the Merry Christmas die cut, and I added some random sequins to add some bling.  Lastly I adhered the panel to a cherry cobbler card base.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Another Delighful Daisy

Supplies: Stamps: Daisy Delight  Paper: Gina K white, Delightful Daisy  Ink: Versamagic pink grapefruit  Accessories: SU daisy punch, clear faceted gem, Offray ribbon

I was inspired again by an older SCS sketch layout for this card.  I used two coordinating patterns from the Delightful Daisy papers for this card, and matted them in white.  I added a white ribbon around the first layer of patterned paper.  Lastly, I stamped and punched out the daisies and added the faceted gem.

Delightful Daisy

Supplies: Stamps: Stampin Up  Paper: Delightful Daisy, old olive, daffodil delight, white  Ink: old olive  Accessories: leaves embossing folder, circle layering framelits

I was cruising through Pinterest and I came upon a Mojo Monday sketch, but I didn't pin it.  Even though I didn't pin it I did use it, and that is where the inspiration for this card came from.  It was fun using so many different patterned papers from the Delightful Daisy paper pack, when I am used to using a white card base.  I had made this card with the intension of putting the new daisy punch where the sentiment is, but it was much too large.  So I put the daisy in the inside of the card instead.

Another Daisy Delight

Supplies:  Stamps: Daisy Delight  Ink: Chalk Ink: gray whale  Paper: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, white, Delightful Daisy  Accessories: daisy punch, gold faceted gems, daffodil delight double stitched ribbon

I love the Delightful Daisy designer series paper, and this is my favorite pattern in the bunch.  I used an old SCS sketch as a starting point for this card.  Whenever I used patterned paper I always need help getting started.  This time I stamped the pattern on the daisy in gray to match the white and yellow daisies on the paper.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Daisy Thank You

Supplies: Stamps: Daisy Delight  Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K white  Accessories:  SU leaves embossing folder, daisy punch, gold faceted gems

I recently ordered the daisy punch and daisy delight stamp set.  I have been making a variety of cards with them and this is the first one that I made.  I kept it simple.  I embossed the bottom of my card, stamped the thank you sentiment, punched out the daisy punch, and embellished it with a gold faceted gem.

Featured Stamper Hoooot Dog!

Supplies: Stamps: Stampendous  Ink: Archival Jet Black  Paper: Strathmore Bristol, Lawn Fawn patterned papers  Accessories: Tombow Markers, Wink of Stella clear marker, Lawn Fawn stitched circle die cut

This week's Featured Stamper on SCS is kraftyaunt, check out her gallery here!  What a fun gallery!  This is the card that gave me inspiration for my card.  I had a similar focal image that I colored with Tombow markers and used my Wink of Stella clear marker to blend.  It adds a nice shimmer to the entire focal image and blends the Tombow markers like butter!  I used a stitched circle to die cut my focal image and I made orange and green banner accents to maintain the same color scheme as the original card.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Sketch Challenge Moose

Supplies:  Stamps: Jolly Friends  Ink: soft suede, cherry cobbler  Paper: Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper, very vanilla, cherry cobbler, crumb cake  Accessories: santa hat punch, circle layering framelits

When I saw the Sketch Challenge on SCS this week I thought of this moose.  I thought he would fit just right in the focal image.  I found some papers to go with the moose and things fell into place.  I fussy cut the moose and added a santa hat using the paper punch.  I added the remaining layers and this completed the card.
