SSINK Favorite DSP: Delightful Daisy

I just love the new Designer Series Paper Delightful Daisy!  A big variety of beautiful papers!!  And then there’s the Daisy Punch.  I know I’ll get tons of use out of that!

I made a Card in a Box to show off the daisies!  This card folds flat for mailing & is sure to put a big smile on the face of whoever opens it up!  The colors are Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, & Daffodil Delight.

Here’s a close up so that you can better see the Daisy Delight stamp and that gorgeous embellishment, Faceted Gems!  These come in clear or gold.

I’m entering my card into a challenge called HSS Inspiration Challenge 266

Here’s a card I made that showcases this pretty paper:

My favorite piece of this Designer Series Paper is that gorgeous pink/green piece you can see in the top left!!

This card layout is perfect for using up small pieces of your DSP!  I’ll post the dimensions here.

  • Stamps:  Daisy Delight
  • Ink:  Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral
  • Paper:  Calypso Coral (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4), Whisper White (5 1/4 X 4), DSP pieces (3 1/8 X 1 3/4 & 1/3/4 squares)  DSP means Designer Series Paper!
  • Accessories:  Daisy Punch, Faceted Gems
  • Hints:  Use your bone folder to curve the petals of the daisy to add a little dimension!

 

If you love these Card in a Boxes like I do, look for more in the Categories area on the right side of my blog.

Be sure & check out what the other Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team gals have selected for their favorite Designer Series Paper!

Banner Day!

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I love banners!  Colorful…inspiring sayings…fun art!

I recently made an Aloha Banner.  I chose the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper basically because I wanted to use that beautiful shiny pattern for the pineapple!

Isn’t that fun?!!  Instead of the Banners Framelits I usually use, I tried this with the Lots of Labels Framelits.  I’ll show you a few photos from the ends:

I recently had a few of my downline ladies over to make banners of their choice.

Helen, Linda, & Destryee worked all day on their banners!!  I didn’t get pictures of all of them, but here’s Destryee’s Easter Banner:

Isn’t that beautiful?!  We all have a new appreciation for banners!!  It’s like making 20 different cards!  But the results are so great!

Here’s one I started on that day:

I’m pretty happy to have a Christmas Banner done!  It gets way too busy once we hit October…

I’d love to hear any comments you have!  Have any of you made a banner?

Thanks for stopping by…

Jar of Love for April

My daughter, Malia, spent last Christmas with us, and helped me with my calendars.  Here’s a page she created:

Those jars are just adorable!  Our family loves to fish- everyone except Malia, that is.  She says she loves fishing, but just hates to catch them.  Feels sorry for the little things.  Me.  I grew up trout fishing in California with my dad.  I could spend all day looking for the perfect fishing hole & be so happy!  My husband loves deep sea fishing in Hawaii.  He actually was lost at sea about 24 years ago when his boat capsized & was miraculously rescued the next morning!

Now hop on over to see what Crystal & Anne came up with for April.
