Daisy Lane Wreath

Here is another card I made to thank people for my birthday presents.  It uses the Stitched All Around stamp set and matching dies called Stitched Labels again (if you didn’t see my previous card using this bundle, you can check it out here).  I also used the stamp set called Daisy Lane for the wreath made out of the flowers.

To make this card, I first used my wreath builder stencil and the flower from the stamp set called Daisy Lane.  I stamped it numerous times in a circle using Crushed Curry Ink.  Then I stamped the thank you sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink and cut it out using the coordinating die from Stitched Labels.  I backed this with a circle I punched out using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered it to the center of the flower wreath.

After that I masked off a stamp from Flourishing Phrases so that I would only ink up the words “so very much”.  A lot of people cut their stamps so they don’t have to mask them.  Honestly, this would give me hives.  It is so easy to mask off a section of a stamp using Washi Tape or something similar.  You just place the tape over the words you don’t want to use, ink the stamp, pull off the tape and stamp it onto a piece of paper.  Only the words that on ink will show.  Then I cut it out using the Classic Label Punch.

On a side note:  Happy Birthday, Peter.  We are looking forward to seeing you soon!!

Flourishing Phrases

This is the third card we made at our monthly club meeting.  It uses the stamp set called Flourishing Phrases and its matching dies called Flourish Thinlits.  The stamp set is a big set with 18 stamps included with it.  Fifteen of those stamps are sentiments so it can be used for a lot of different occasions.  There are sympathy, thank you, hello, marriage and congratulations sentiments.  Luckily this stamp set and dies are being carried over into the new Catalog.

The dies in this set are very intricate and beautiful.  To make it easier to adhere to the cardstock we used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  You attach a piece of the Adhesive Sheet to the back of the cardstock and then run it through the Big Shot with the die.  Then you just peel off the backing and adhere it to your card.  It is especially great with dies that have a lot of detail.

We stamped the flowers and leaves with Versamark onto Smoky Slate cardstock.  Versamark is great for embossing but it is a watermark ink so whatever color cardstock you stamp it on, it makes the image just slightly darker.  The sentiment was stamped using Island Indigo.  Poor Island Indigo.  It is one of the colors that is retiring on May 31st.  Make sure you stock up up ink, ink refills and cardstock if you like this color.
