Flower Foil Meets Daisy Punches

Quick & Easy Card Ideas

Hello Friends,

Looking for quick and easy card ideas?  Here are a few card ideas using the Free Flowering Foils Designer Paper (Sale-a-Bration 2020) and myDaisy Punches.

Flowering Foils Paper Stampin' Up!

What's not to love about the gorgeous Flowering Foils Paper by Stampin' Up!.  First, it's free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration 2020.  Though time is running out to scoop up this free paper.  Sale-a-bration ends next week, March 31.

Plus, it's beautiful and has so many possible uses.  Today, I tried washing my paper with my aqua painter and Coastal Cabana ink.  Then, I tried applying the same ink with a sponge.  I liked the second method much better.  It was quicker and easier with beautiful results.  Either way, I love the way the foil resists the ink!

Daisy Punches Stampin' Up!

Here are two super simple card ideas using my inked paper.  For the card on the left, I cut a Coastal Cabana mat with my Layering Squares dies, then I topped it with a 2-3/4" square of my Flowering Foil paper.  According to my calculations, I could net 12 cards from a single sheet of paper using this method.

For the card on the right, I simply cut a 4" square of Coastal Cabana card stock to use as a mat, then I topped it with a 3-3/4" square of Flowering Foils Designer Paper.  Using this design, you will net 9 cards from a single sheet of paper.

Daisy Lane Stampin' Up!

I inked both the large and the medium daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set with Soft Suede ink, then punched them out with my Daisy Punches.  If you want to add a little dimension, you can curl the petals slightly with your bone folder.

Simple card Ideas

The flowers are from the gorgeous Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!.  The only way to get this fabulous paper is for FREE with Sale-a-bration and a qualifying order.  Which means....the clock is ticking, because Sale-a-Bration 2020 ends March 31 or WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

Disappearing White Card Technique

I think that the embossed background is pretty spectacular too.  This technique is also demonstrated in today's video tutorial.  I used the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!.

Welcome Easter Baby Card?

Handmade Baby Card

Hello Friends,

Did you know that the Welcome Easter stamp set by Stampin' Up! works equally well for making Baby Cards and papercrafts?  Today's simple card does just that.  I simply stamped the chubby little bunny and the little one sentiment. Then, I added a few bits and pieces of designer paper and one crumbled bow.  Tada! It's a Baby Card!

Welcome Easter Stampin' Up!

Making a Baby Card

Stamp the bunny using Basic Gray ink.  Then, add a splash of Petal Pink and a teeny bit of shading. 

Stamp "Welcome to the World, Little One" using Mint Macaron ink.

Stack a few swatches of All Dressed Up Designer Paper.  Wow! I love this cheerful paper!  The happy colors and whimsical designs are just so fun.

Have you tried the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding yet?  It is so, so soft.  Hint: Tie a quick bow.  Don't overthink it.  Then, smoosh and crinkle your bow (the more crinkled, the better).  Follow these steps to make a perfect bow every time.

Welcome Easter Paper Crafts

As the name implies, the Welcome Easter stamp set makes fabulous Easter Paper Crafts, too.

See yesterday's Blog Post to get the skinny on making this adorable Welcome Easter basket (purse).
