Always Thinking of You

I created this card for a card swap that I had joined to help a fellow Team Stamp It team member. I just love how the Beautiful Day stamp set allows for heat embossing the flower (and the butterfly that is also included in the stamp set) and creates a nice image to fussy-cut.

Fussy-cut you ask? Fussy-cutting is when you use scissors to cut out an image that doesn't have a coordinating die to do the work for you. Some images are very difficult to fussy-cut, but these big, thick edged images are really easy to fussy-cut. 

This card also showcases how you can interchange a stamp set from the Occasions catalog with paper and embellishments from the annual catalog. I love the Delightful Daisy Designer Paper, so I jumped at the chance to use it for this beautiful card.

I hope you like my card. Leave me a comment below to let me know, or just to say "hi!"

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day, and Happy Stampin'!

This Beautiful Day stamp set can be yours for free with a $50 order! Contact me for more details.

I love how versatile Stampin' Up! products are. Have you ever looked at a stamp and wish you could stamp it in multiple colors? Well, you can! Using the Stampin' Write Markers, you can color the stamp in any color you choose. When you are done coloring, breathe on the stamp using a warm, heavy breath, then stamp on the paper. 

I used this technique on this Celebrate card. It's so easy to do, I don't know why I don't do it more. Now you can have green leaves where green leaves belong, along with any color flower that you choose!

I hope you liked this card. Please leave me a comment below to let me know, or to just say "hi!"

You Make Me Smile

... and so does this card! I LOVE the Daisy Delight bundle in the annual catalog. This card also features the 2017-2019 In-Colors that were released this year, and I think they work very well together. 

This card is pretty simple and quick to make. The hardest thing is centering one daisy piece to the other - which isn't difficult at all!

I hope you like this card. Leave me a message below to let me know or just say "Hi."
