Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 4

Seaside Spray Colour Challenge 4

Hello and welcome to Week 4 of my Stampin’ Up! Seaside Spray Colour Challenge. If you have missed the previous projects you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3. This week’s colour combination is: Seaside Spray, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron. The decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Stamp Set as it’s a while since I’ve played with it (and it’s lovely).

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm, which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front I have stamped the foliage image, repeatedly, in Pear Pizzazz ink down the right hand side of the card front. The sentiment (It’s Your Time To Shine) is stamped, repeatedly, in So Saffron ink down the left hand side of the card front. I have used multiple generations of stamping for the sentiment.

The large daisy is stamped twice in Seaside Spray ink and the smaller daisy is stamped four times. These are cut out using the coordinating Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches. They are then layered together in pairs and adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. You can see from the photo that I have gently shaped the petals of the smaller daisies to add dimension.

The final touch is provided by a few Elegant Faceted Gems (Pearlescent White). These are a great way to add a really subtle hint of sparkle.

SU Garden Lane DSP Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for a sketch challenge. The challenge was hosted by The Spot. You can find out more about these challenges, see the other entries and join in here.

The sketch for the challenge is shown below.

I decided to combined the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Garden Lane DSP with Daisies created using the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the bottom of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Mossy Meadow cardstock. This is followed by a layer of the Stampin’ Up! Garden Lane DSP; and, to fit with the sketch, a band of another sheet of the DSP.

The Daisies are cut from Whisper White cardstock using the Daisy and Medium Daisy Punches. The centres are cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. The Leaf Punch is used to cut leaves from Mossy Meadow cardstock. Punched leaves are adhered to the back of the large daisy and one of the smaller daisies and these are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped onto Mossy Meadow cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The sentiment is from the Stitched All Around Stamp Set and is cut out using the coordinating Stitched Labels Dies.

A length of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread is tied in a bow through the holes in the die cut. The final small daisy is shaped and adhered to the die cut using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the whole sentiment piece is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I think the contrast between the rich Mossy Meadow and bright Whisper White looks great and the small elements of Mango Melody just add that finishing touch.

SU Daisy Lane Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’m going to back an old favourite! It’s easy to forget the Annual Catalogue when the new Seasonal Catalogue is released but I try to make sure it gets plenty of use still. One of my particular favourites from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is Daisy Lane and the coordinating punches.

Today I’d like to share with you a card which is great for using your favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP) because you simply pick the featured colours and create the daisy and foliage to match. I’ve chosen an unusual colour combination to show you that the daisy looks great even in traditionally non-floral colours.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. The main card front is created from a piece of the Woven Threads DSP. I have cut notches in the top and bottom edges of the DSP using the 0.5″ Circle punch. This allows the Linen Thread to sit nicely around the card front, adhered on the back using Tear & Tape. A shorter length of the thread is tied into a bow.

The large daisy is stamped twice in Seaside Spray ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Daisy punch. The daisy is stamped again in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the centre cut out using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. The daisies are offset and layered, together with the centre, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Sprig Punch is used to cut out three pieces of Terracotta Tile cardstock and these are adhered to the back of the daisy using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The daisy can then be adhered to the card front.

The sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and trimmed into a rectangle using the Paper Trimmer. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front such that the left hand side sits under the thread.

Why not dig out your favourite DSP, check the featured colours (don’t forget you can find this information on the back of the pack or in the catalogue) and make your own version of this card. I’d love to see it once you’ve finished!

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Gift Bag

Join me to make this bright and cheerful Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane gift bag!

I’m so pleased that my Daisy Lane Stamp Set Showcase fell on a month with 5 Sundays! Last week I showed you three different Daisy Lane cards using the same colour scheme. If you missed that blog post, you can find it here.

Those of you who follow me on Pinterest (@hc_handmadecrafts) may have noticed that I’ve been trying to organise my boards and one of the new ones is called ‘SU Bright and Cheerful’. Surely Daisy Lane would be the perfect bundle to create a new project to add to the board. In this case I have used the punch from the bundle and combined it with the larger Daisy punch.

I decided on a Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane gift bag as we have already looked at cards, gift boxes, tags and home décor pieces.

How to make it…

The basic bag is made from Bermuda Bay cardstock measuring 27x18cm. Simply score along the long edge at 8, 13, 21 and 26cm and along the short edge at 14.5cm. See the black lines in the diagram. Snip to create tabs as soon by the orange lines in the diagram. Fold along all score lines and crease with a bone folder. Add ‘tear and tape’ along the sections labelled a and b, assemble and adhere.

How to decorate it…

To decorate the bag, I used the Daisy and Medium Daisy punches to cut out 4 large daisies and two medium daisies from Melon Mambo cardstock. These are layered together and adhered to form 2 large daisies and 1 medium daisy. The centres are decorated using Clear Faceted Gems. I have punched ‘Sprigs’ from Granny Apple Green cardstock and layered them behind the daisies.

The two large daisies are adhered straight to the gift bag. The medium daisy is adhered to a tag which I created from a 5x10cm piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. The top of the tag is formed using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and for the bottom I have rounded the corners using the Detailed Trio punch.

The sentiment is die cut from Mango Melody cardstock using the Well Written dies – in this case I have used ‘hooray’. The final touch is one of the retired Gold Library Clips but any similar clip would work just as well.

Brilliant Brights…

As well as showing off how versatile these punches are, I think this gift bag also shows how vibrant the ‘Brights’ colour family is. There are some great choices to make your summer craft projects stand out from the crowd and put a smile on people’s faces.

Any questions?

I really hope you have enjoyed this tutorial for the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane gift bag, and the last 5 weeks as we have explored the Daisy Lane bundle and some fabulous coordinating products. As usual, if you have any questions leave them below or email me at helen@papercraftlife.com

Next time…

Next week will see the start of a brand new Stamp Set Showcase. I just need to decide what to feature!
