Stampin’ Up! Colorful & Delightful Daisy Thank You

Good morning!!  I hope your weekend is going well!

This afternoon, I’ll be taking the Finn-ster to our first obedience class.  Time for him to figure out that he can behave nicely even with other dogs and people around!  It’s step one towards my goal to do pet therapy with him!  Once I get home, I’ll be getting ready to do my Sunday night Facebook Live with y’all.  Not sure yet what we’re going to make, but…I think we’ll have fun!  So be sure to come on over to my Facebook page at 8pm Eastern this evening.  Here’s a link right to the page!

Now for today, I really tried to resist my strong desire to use my new favoritest bundle from the new catalog – the Daisy Delight bundle.

I tried.

And failed. 🙂

So I paired it up with some Color Theory DSP (also available 1 June) and this is what I ended up with.  Take a look-see:

I played along with a couple of challenges on this one.  The first, from Freshly Made Sketches, inspired the layout.

And the color scheme is from the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

I elected to use Dapper Denim for my navy color, and began by SNAILing a piece of the Color Theory DSP Stack to a Powder Pink mat.  Powder Pink is one of the new 2017-2019 In Colors!

My center panel is simply a piece of Whisper White, matted on Powder Pink card stock and SNAILd to the card front.

I used a little Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Powder Pink card stock to the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from Daisy Delight in Dapper Denim on Whisper White and popped it over the Powder Pink mat with some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For my flowers, I stamped the large flower image from Daisy Delight in Powder Pink four times on some Whisper White card stock, and cut them out with the Daisy Punch.

I used a Blender Pen to brush some Pink Pirouette ink near the center of the flowers, and then used Liquid Glue to stack two together.  I popped the flowers onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a couple of Clear Faceted Gems (coming in the new catalog on 1 June) to the middles.

On the inside, I stamped some more Daisy Delight flowers in Powder Pink in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  Once again, I brushed Pink Pirouette onto the petals and the center of the flowers with a Blender Pen.  Then I used the flower-middle image in Daisy Delight to stamp a Powder Pink middle.  Finally, I added a second Daisy Delight sentiment in Dapper Denim.

I SNAILd the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Dapper Denim card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple more Powder Pink Daisy Delight flowers on the front…

…and I added a little more of the Dapper Denim Color Theory DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I couldn’t help it, y’all.  I just love this set!!  Daisy Delight and the matching Daisy Punch.  Wow!  I hope you like – and….well.  You know the rest!  Get your wish lists ready!!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Well, he’s back.  Finn has got his groove back!

But – he still didn’t have it on Friday night.  He only made it about half way to the barn with me when I went to tuck the horses in.

Guess he figured he was still meeting the intent of taking care of me, long as he could see me!

Or at least hear me!

Once he got back in the house, though….the great weariness overcame him once again….

Yes.  It overcame him right in the middle of chewing his bone.  One second he was chewing and then….asleep.

Check the tongue! And the fang sticking out.  LOL

Ridiculously cute.

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

15822762_10211923272945503_223384966683691578_n
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  We’ve got a sketch for you today- and I’m thinkin’ you’re going to see some Sneak Peeks of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Hope you’ll spend a little time checking out all our projects today!

Here’s the sketch we all worked with…


When I first saw the new Delightful Daisy Suite in the new catalog – I was tickled to death!  I’ve been waiting for a flower like this for a while!  And then – I saw the Delightful Daisy DSP.  And I was in love.  It’s just so danged pretty!  Each design is better than the last – and I’m thrilled this one will be around for a whole year!! 🙂


I used this new paper along with the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy Punch to make a pretty cottage-garden thank you card.  Take a look-see:


Along with our sketch, I played along with the pretty picture in the Card Concept challenge this week.


I started with a piece of the beautiful paper in Delightful Daisy – running just the bottom portion of the paper thru the Big Shot in the Fluttering TIEF.  Then I matted the panel on Calypso Coral.

Next up – a length of 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight (available on 1 June in the new catalog – along with Cherry Cobbler and Blushing Bride!) – doubled and adhered with a few dabs of Liquid Glue.


For my sentiment panel, I used a piece of Whisper White and stamped myself a little “cottage garden” with the images in the Daisy Delight stamp set.  There are two kinds of stems – all stamped in stamped-off-once Tranquil Tide (1 June).  Then I added some Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral flowers.  This is a photo-polymer set, so it’s easy to line everything up.

The sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide at full strength.  Then I SNAILd it to a piece of Calypso Coral card stock and popped it on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


My daisy is made by stamping two of the flower images from Daisy Delight in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White.  Here’s a tip – when you stamp these, make one “petal” go straight down – like the hands of a clock at 6 o’clock.  That makes it easy peasy to use the matching Daisy Punch! 🙂

After punching them both out, I lightly curled some of the petals and adhered them together with a little Liquid Glue.  Then I used an Aqua Painter to brush some more Daffodil Delight on the center and part way out the petals.


I adhered my flower to the sentiment panel and added a new Clear Faceted Gem (1 June).

I cut three Bitty Butterfly punches (retiring!) from a piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP and adhered them.  The flutterby on the flower is popped on with a Dimensional.  I added three little Pearl Basic Jewel Embellishments to the butterflies and the card was done!

On the inside, I added another pretty sentiment from Daisy Delight in Tranquil Tide to a Whisper White panel.  Then I added some more flowers in Tranquil Tide, Wisteria Wonder and Daffodil Delight.


I SNAILd the panel to a Calypso Coral mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Daisy Delight garden on the front…


…and then I added a little more of the Delightful Daisy DSP to the envelope flap.


Et Voila!  Okay, folks, it’s official.  This is hands-down my favorite suite in the new catalog!  I love everything about it – and I know when you get your hands on it, you’re going to love it, too!!  Soon, people, very soon! 🙂
