From My Heart Case the Catalog

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another card that I received in the CASE the Catalog swap I took part in.  CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.  Casing is a great way to take a design in the catalog and either recreate it just as you see it or use it as the base of the design and change things up a little.  This is a super cute card and came from page 8 of the January - June Mini Catalog.  On the very first page of the From My Heart Suite.  Here's a look at the card.

This super cute card features the From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper.  There's four different designer series paper designs featured on this card.  This is one of those card designs that will allow you to use up your designer series paper.  But, it's okay you can order more.  The From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper features playful heart patterns that have red and pink foil accents on some designs.  Some images from the paper can be cut out using the Heart Punch Pack. This paper is excellent for valentines, cards, and scrapbook pages.


The sentiment comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set which is part of the Heartfelt Bundle.  The bundle contains the Heartfelt stamp set and the Heart Punch Pack.  The heart punches in the punch pack coordinate with some of the images from the From My Heart designer series paper, as well as images from the stamp set.  You can use both punches and punch out information from either the paper or the stamp set.

The designer series paper was layered together onto the Flirty Flamingo card base.  The sentiment was added to a whisper white strip in real red ink.  Behind the sentiment strip is a nest of gold thread and another strip of the SDSP.  Behind the punched out heart is a strip of Real Red Double Stitched Ribbon.

Sizes & Dimensions: 

  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
  • From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper (White background with hearts) 3 3/4" x 4 1/2"

Daisy Lane It's Time to Shine

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to be sharing with you a card that uses a new stamp set from the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog (which goes live on June 4th at 12 pm MT Time).  This is also the stamp set that I picked to use for my Online Class this month.  I am using the New Daisy Lane Stamp Set.  This is a fun set and coordinates with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set that's in the current catalog as well as the large daisy punch.  When this set goes live it will also have a new matching punch (Medium Daisy Punch) as part of a cost saving bundle.  Here's a look at my card.

Daisy Lane Stamp Set, Rick Adkins, Stampin' Up!, Flirty Flamingo Cardstock, Daffodil Delight Cardstock, Blackberry Bliss Cardstock
I picked the colors for my card today from the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.  This pack of designer series paper is very artistic and the designer actually studied Monet Paintings and then hand painted the designs where they where photographed and then turned into this lovely paper you see today.  Just a little fun fact for you.  Any way back to the card.  I stamped the large Daisy (twice) from the set and used my large daisy punch to cut that out.  I added the designer series paper to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and then attached that to the card base.  Oh I forgot to mention my sentiment was stamped directly on the lovely designer series paper in Blackberry Bliss ink.  I thought it was such a wonderful mix of sentiments for a friend to get in the mail. I added some punch out sprigs (using the sprig punch returning to the new catalog) in Daffodil Delight & Blackberry Bliss.  I popped the daisy up on a stampin' dimensional and that was pretty much my card.  The card base is a piece of Flirty Flamingo cut to portrait size (in the us that's 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).  
I love that this stamp set coordinates with both stamp sets and punches we already have in the catalog.  That makes it not only do double duty but it gives us way more options to pick from without a lot of extra cost.  This set is my Featured product this week so you will be seeing a lot more examples of this stamp set.  Plus if you sign up for my Daisy Lane Online Class you will have seven more card ideas to go along with the ones I share this week.  Deadline to sign up for the class is the 4th.  
To tie in the envelope I used a strip of the matching paper and attached it to the front.  I still have room to write the address and the post office still has room to run it through their post machine without interference.  Which is good.  I love to make the envelope coordinate when I can by either adding a little of the matching designer series paper or by stamping.  You shouldn't be sending a naked envelope use those scrips of dsp you have that matches your card.  I also used a strip on the inside of the card as well to help tie it to the front.  

That's all for me this morning I have another post for you this afternoon so make sure you watch for that.  Remember to add the Daisy Lane Stamp Set onto your wish list, you are going to love it.  The new Annual Catalog goes lives tomorrow!  Wow it's been such a long awaited time.  I also wanted to mention I have kicked off my three month Sizzlin' Summer promotion so you can check out those details here and earn a chance to win a prize from the Holiday Catalog in September.  
Thanks for dropping by I planning to get back to the normal schedule soon. 
Happy Stampin'
