Stepped Up Card

Hello Stampers. Today I have a card that I showed you a while back but I’ve stepped it up a bit. I sometimes mention how you can enhance my cards so I thought I’d practice what I preach. 🙂

This is the original card.

Nice but kind of blah. 

Now here’s the same card after I stepped it up.

I added our new Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, and the Scallop Trim Border Punch (R) with some Marina Mist Striped Organdy Ribbon (R). I also changed the Get Well sentiment from Crumb Cake to Marina Mist and added the stamp to the envelope. 

I’m very pleased with the end result.

There are many times when I create a card and I like it simple but then after I look at it for a while I’m not really satisfied. I remake many of them to “step” them up after my classes. I also get many ideas from my class participants. They have wonderful ideas! The more ideas the better the card!

Speaking of classes…I invite anyone in the San Diego area to attend. I welcome fellow demos and anyone interested in having some fun and making six great cards. My schedule of classes for the remainder of the year can be found here on my blog. For more details, please contact me.

I also send out a weekly newsletter describing all the current promotions Stampin’ Up! is offering as well as class information and my news. If you are interested in receiving my newsletter – Crafty Cardmaker Weekly Newsletter – then please contact me so that you can be added to my mailing list.

Take care and try to keep cool. Happy Stamping!    Donna

Daisy Day

Hello Stampers.  I’ve decided to do another card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#tttc005).   This time I’m doing Summer, Die-cut, Pattern Paper.

I’m crazy about the Daisy Punch and Delightful Daisy DSP so I decided to incorporate those along with Flourish Thinlits.

This card is definitely summery…daisies!

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Butterfly Basics (for the texture on the daisy center)

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry 

Paper – Whisper White, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Delightful Daisy DSP

Accessories – Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, Daisy Punch, Flourish Thinlits, 1/2″ Circle Punch (R), Dauber, Mini Dimensionals

 

Here’s another look at this cheery little card.

Did you notice that the DSP looks faded?  Don’t worry…it’s supposed to be that way. The whole pack of Delightful Daisy DSP is like that and it was meant to be that way. I think it gives more interest.

I absolutely love this bundle but I must warn you…the Daisy Punch is out of stock but never fear… Stampin’ Up! will send you yours (if you order one) as soon as they are back in stock.  *They should be back in stock by July 31st.

I’m also loving the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder… it is just so unique and works well with everything.

Note…if my photos are not the best please excuse me for a bit. My old camera just totally died on our cruise so I had to buy what they had on the ship. Don’t get me wrong…I love this new little camera but I’m still getting acquainted with the settings, etc. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer. Stay cool and Happy Stamping!    Donna
