A new Daisy stamp set is coming....

Hi all,

All demonstrators who attended a recent Onstage Event receive a stamp set for FREE in their goodie bags and it's always a good one!  This year, Stampin' Up! treated demonstrators to the Diasy Lane Stamp Set that coordinates with the existing Daisy Punch.  Flowers are always popular but the good thing about this one...it coordinates with an existing punch and.....wait for it....a BRAND NEW PUNCH!  The punch and the stamp set will be available to order from 4th June 2019 and I think this is going to be a very popular set of products!

For today's card, I have focused on the large daisy head for the main feature and I have used a standard C6 card base cut from Powder Pink Cardstock.  


To start this one off, I have used the main stem of the flower in Old Olive and coloured in very roughly with a Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Write Marker.  This has been stamped onto a layer of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 10cm x 14.4cm.  This gives an equal border around the edge. 


I have stamped two of the daisy heads using Flirtly Flamingo onto Powder Pink Cardstock, cut out with the Daisy Punch and  layered together.  It has been stuck to the cardfront using Stampin' Dimensionals to raise.


The sentiment comes from the Varied Vases Stamp Set and I have stamped it using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Underneath, I have used the scallop image from the same stamp set and stamped a section of it in Old Olive Ink.  

To finish, I have added a hand-drawn line around the edge of the Whisper White layer using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.

Coffee and Card returns today with Dragonfly Dreams...

Hi all,

Following on from yesterday's post, I am showing you another card using the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set that will be retiring at the end of May.  It has been around for a while so if you still have it on your wish list, you will be able to purchase it while stocks last and ONLY until the end of May as it does not feature in the 2019-20 annual catalogue.

Today's card is one that we will be making at today's Coffee and Card event that takes place in the cafe at Bredgar Farm Shop in Sittingbourne.  You can find me there from 10.30 - 11.45 and it costs £5 to take part.  This includes your first hot drink and everything you need to make this card, and yes that include the evelope!


This card uses a standard C6 cardbase that has been cut from Powder Pink A4 Cardstock (that is also retiring at the end of May!).  The Whisper White Cardstock layer on the top measures 10cm x 14.4cm.  I have used the dots image stamp with Powder Pink Ink and stamped several times at the top and bottom with first, second and third generation stamping.

The dragonfly in the centre has been stamped with Gray Granite Ink and the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  



I always like to take along two designs to Coffee and Card to save people waiting around and it's nice to see different ways with the same few stamps.  Here it is in Lemon Lime Twist and a background stamp from the Playful Backgrounds Stamp Set....

Farewell to Dragonfly Dreams.....

Hi all,

So as you may have heard, we have a new annual catalogue coming in June.  The great thing about this is that it is full of gorgeous new products for us to get excited about but it does mean that we have to say goodbye to some favourite products that will not be carrying over into the new catalogue.

One of those sets that will be retiring is the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and Detailed Dragonfly Dies.  This set has been around for a while now and has been very popular.  If you have this on your wishlist then it will be available until stocks last but hurry as things are starting to sell out quickly!  You can click on the "Shop Now" icon below to place your order and browse the other products that will be retiring.

Today's card I have used the bee image as the main feature.  I love the texture on this image and it is so realistic.

I have used a card base that has been cut from Crumb Cake A4 Cardstock.  It measures 14.9cm x 21cm and it has been scored at 10.5cm and folded.  This size card fits perfectly into the C6 Envelopes that Stampin' Up! sell as part of their Paper Basics selection of products.

I have added a layer of Whisper White Cardstock that measures 10cm x 14.4cm.  The circle image comes from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set (also retiring) and I have stamped it using a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  The bee has been stamped using the same ink pad and coloured in wit h Stampin' Blends.

I have cut out the same size circle using the 2.25" Circle Punch and placed it over the image.  Using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and a Mango Melody Stampin' Write Marker, I have splashed some ink across the card front. I didn't want the splashes inside the circle hence the placement of the punched circle.  Once happy with the look, I have removed the circle and discarded it.

I have cut a piece of Vellum measuring 10cm x 1.5" and stamped the sentiment that comes from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set.  I have used a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad for this and let dry before attaching it to the card front.

To finish, I have tied some linen thread around the left edge of the card front, secured with a bow and added two Adhesive Backed Sequins.

We will be using this stamp set for a different design at my regular Coffee and Card event tomorrow which takes place at Bredgar Farm Shop in Sittingbourne from 10.30 - 11.45am.  It costs £5 to take part and that includes everything you need to make this card and a hot drink of your choice.
