Short & Sweet Saturday - Daisy Delight Bundle is Back!


For those of you that don't know it yet...the Daisy Delight Bundle is back! The Daisy Punch is now available to purchase, so that also means the bundle is back, too! I'm sure other demonstrators agree with me...I'm SO glad it's back! I've been dying to make projects with it again! It's one of my favorite new bundles...if not my favorite!

I just had to use it on today's Short & Sweet Saturday card. I haven't used my Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon, yet, so I decided to use it on this card, too. I love the width of this gingham ribbon! It's perfect!

I'm sharing the instructions as usual. I've had a couple ladies tell me that they've had trouble opening the printable version or getting it to print without asking for a password. This should NOT be happening, because I don't add a password to my free tutorials. If this happens to you, please let me know. As far as I know, it usually works. It seems like an intermittent problem. If it keeps happening, I'm going to have to look into using another program. Thanks!


Dimensions:
  • Thick Whisper White: 4-1/4" x 11" (card base) - score at 5-1/2" to make folding easier
  • Whisper White: 5-1/2" x 2-3/4" (daisy)
  • Daffodil Delight: scrap (flower center)
  • Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP): 1-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon: 7"

Instructions:
  1. Fold the Thick Whisper White card base piece in half so the fold is on the top.
  2. Wrap the Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon around the left side of the Delightful Daisy DSP piece, attach the ribbon ends onto the back of the DSP using SNAIL Adhesive. The left edge of the ribbon should line up with the left edge of the DSP. Make sure the DSP is flat when putting the ribbon on. Attach this piece to the right side of the card base.
  3. Stamp the large daisy stamp from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set two times onto the Whisper White daisy piece using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Brush the lines in the inner part of each petal with a Blender Pen. This makes the ink bleed a bit, and it brings a little navy color to the flower petal centers. Put two-three Mini Glue Dots onto the back of one of the daisy's center. Attach it to the top of the other daisy, staggering the petals as you do.
  4. Stamp the detail flower center stamp onto the Daffodil Delightful scrap using the Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad. Punch the flower center out with the 1/2" Circle Punch. Attach it to the center of the flower using one-two Mini Glue Dots.
  5. Stamp the "your thoughtfulness..." stamp onto the bottom, left corner of the card base using the Daffodil Delight ink pad. Lay the flower down in the desired position on the card (see picture for placement), without attaching. Ink the outline leaf stamp with the Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad. Figure out where you want to stamp it, take the flower away, and stamp the leaf. Ink the stamp up again with Old Olive ink pad, and stamp it next to the first one. Lay the flower back down in it's desired position. Ink up the stamp stamp with the same ink pad again, figure out where the bottom leaf should be stamped, take the flower away, and stamp the leaf. Ink the solid leaf stamp with the Old Olive ink pad, stamp it onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp the inside of one of the stamped leaf outlines. Do the same thing with the other two stamped leaf outlines.
  6. Put two Mini Glue Dots under the area of the ribbon where the flower will be placed. This will keep the ribbon in place, and keep the flower on more securely when attached. Attach the flower to the card using two-three Mini Glue Dots.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Happy Birthday Gorgeous


I've got a birthday card for you for this week's Short & Sweet Saturday. I used the new stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I opted not to use the die that coordinates with the set. I CASEd this one from one that Melissa Stout made.


Dimensions:
  • Daffodil Delight: 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Basic Black: 4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Whisper White: 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" (stamped layer)
  • Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon: 6" and 4"

Instructions:
  1. Stamp the largest outline flower stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set two times onto the lower half of the Whisper White piece using the Crushed Curry Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the largest bold flower stamp on top of each one using the Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin' Pad. If there's room, stamp the branch stamp onto each of the flowers using the Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin' Pad (I only had room for a branch on the top flower). Stamp the same largest outline flower stamp around three times using the Berry Burst Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the same largest, bold flower stamp with the Berry Burst ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp onto one of the Berry Burst outline flowers. Do the same with the others. Stamp the same branch stamp onto the flowers that have room, using the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad. See picture for placement.
  2. Stamp the outline, five-petal flower stamp onto the same Whisper White piece around three times using the Powder PInk Classic Stampin' Pad. Ink the bold, five-petal flower stamp with the Powder Pink ink pad, stamp onto a scrap piece of paper, and then stamp onto one of the Powder Pink outline flowers. Do the same with the others. Stamp the single, dotted flower stamp into some of the open spaces in-between the other flowers, using the Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "Happy Birthday" stamp onto the bottom, right side of the card using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. See picture for placement.
  3. Attach the Whisper White layer onto the center of the Basic Black base layer piece. Wrap the 6" piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon around the top of the piece, attaching the ribbon ends to the back of the Basic Black cardstock. Tie the 4" piece onto the right side of the attached ribbon using a single knot, and trim the ribbon ends at an angle. I used the cross-stitched side of the ribbon, but either will work.
  4. Fold the Daffodil Delight card base piece in half. Attach the matted, stamped piece onto the center of the card base front. Attach three of the lighter colored enamel dots from the Glitter Enamel Dots. Starting from the left, I used a small, light Crushed Curry dot, a medium-sized, light Old Olive dot, and a medium-sized, light Berry Burst dot. See picture for placement.

Life is Beautiful - Colorful Seasons


Today's card features another wonderful, new bundle, Colorful Seasons Bundle. This bundle includes the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. Like all SU! bundles, you save 10% when you purchase the bundles versus buying the stamp set and dies separately. I love how this bundle can make beautiful projects during ALL four seasons of the year! This bundle will get a lot of use around here!

  • Dapper Denim: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base) & 5-1/4" x 4" (embossed layer)

  • Whisper White: 3-1/4" x 2-3/4" (main image)
  • Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack: 5" x 1" (Crushed Curry crackle paper)

Instructions:
  1. Fold the Dapper Denim card base piece in half. Emboss the Dapper Denim embossed layer piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Hexagon 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the Color Theory DSP piece across the bottom of the embossed piece. Attach the whole thing to the card base.
  2. Stamp the "Life is a beautiful thing" stamp from the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set onto the bottom, left corner of the Whisper White piece using the Dapper Denim Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the branch stamp across the top of the same piece using the Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach the stamped piece onto the Soft Suede main image mat piece.
  3. Die-cut a chair out of the smaller Soft Suede piece using the chair die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. Attach the chair to the bottom, right corner of the stamped piece, using the Fine- Tip Glue Pen. The bottom of the chair should be hanging off of the bottom (see picture). Die-cut the largest detail flower die from the Berry Burst piece two times, the medium-sized detail flower die once, and the smallest detail flower die once. Stamp the coordinating flower center stamps onto each flower using the Soft Suede ink pad. Attach the flowers onto the stamped branch using Mini Glue Dots. Attach the whole thing to the upper, right side of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Attach three of the large Berry Burst enamel dots from the Glitter Enamel Dots onto the bottom, left of the DSP layer. Make sure to use different shades of the Berry Burst enamel dots.
