GOOD-BYE BUNDLES!

During this month we focus so much on the retiring products and what is leaving the catalogue that we forget what products are staying but won’t be available as bundles.  Did you know that you can save 10% by buying them as a Bundle now rather than decide in the new catalogue that you want them.

Let’s look at a couple of them.

My favourite bundle has to be the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  I have used it a lot.

These Z-Fold cards are still a very popular post on my blog.  I had matching gift bags to go with them.

You can see that post -> HERE.

This card was inspired by Patty Bennett that we made at my Catalogue Launch last year.

See the post -> HERE.

This card below I made just last week for my class last weekend.  It was a very popular card in the lovely retiring Sweet Sugarplum colour.  It was CASED from Leanne on Pinterest.  You can see the original card -> HERE. 

What about the fantastic bundle Daisy Delight.  With a matching punch to the stamp set you can create some very quick cards with this Bundle.

Make it a fun Flap Fold.  The original post is -> HERE.

Or a nice sunshine-y card like the one below.The original post is -> HERE. 

There are a number of other retiring bundles you can see in the image right at the top of the post including the Coffee Cafe Bundle, Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle, Hold on to Hope Bundle and Label Me Pretty Bundle just to name a few.

Do you like these?  Are they on your Wish List?  Then maybe you should grab them now before June 1st to save 10%.

See them in store -> HERE You can shop there or contact me directly.  If shopping online please use the Host Code: FRS6ZZ6G

TWO MORE DAISY CARDS!

I have 2 more cards using the Daisy Delight bundle.  These cards were made for samples to show at the Craft Show that we did last month.  We focused on this bundle and it was only the day before that I got to make a few cards.  So they had to be quick.  No time trying to work it all out.

Firstly, you can’t go past the gorgeous Delightful Daisy paper.

For this card, cut a small piece of the Designer Series Paper smaller than the front of the card base.  Don’t be afraid to cut into it. It’s there to enjoy not to store on a shelf. Wrap some ribbon around the paper.  This is the Mini Chevron ribbon in Old Olive.  Instead of trying to tie a bow on the paper it is a bit flimsy, I adhered a strip down the length with snail adhesive and adhering the ends over the back of the paper.  Then tie a bow from some of the ribbon and attach that separately with a glue dot.  That is so much easier. Adhere that to the White card base. Almost done!

The sentiment is from the Label Me Pretty.  Stamp the sentiment in black and punch it out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch and punch a circle out from the Silver Foil with the 1 3/8″ circle.  Stamp the flourish label in Old Olive on Old Olive card and punch out with the pretty Label Punch.  Of course I added some silver thread under the sentiment and a Rhinestone.

The next I CASED from Claudia’s blog HERE. 

Have you got your sunglasses handy??  Got to love the Lemon Lime Twist.  I stamped the flower in black on Lemon Lime Twist card and punched it out. A strip of Lemon Lime Twist card was embossed with the Sparkle Embossing Folder.  Then you can cut the Happy Birthday from the Happy Birthday Thinlits.

Stay tuned for more Daisy cards to come.

A FLAP FOLD DAISY CARD!

This card I am showing you today was actually the first card I made with the Daisy Delight Bundle.  Usually my first couple of cards with a new set I turn to Pinterest and CASE a card.  I liked the idea of this card.  It is a Flap fold card.  Just a little different to the standard card.  I CASED it from Janet’s blog HERE.  I will give you the measurements shortly.  Janet has just the imperial measurements for her card but I will give you the Metric as well as the Imperial. First I guess you want to see the card.

Isn’t the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper just gorgeous??  On the top flap I stamped the Daisy in Calypso Coral twice and punched them out.  They were layered together and off-set slightly.  The centre was stamped in Pool Party and punched with the 1/2″ circle punch. I stamped the leaves in Old Olive for the outline and the solid image.  These were hand cut. The Daisy was then layered on a circle cut with the Layering Circle Framelits in Pool Party and then a larger one with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  

The sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set. I made a discovery when I cut the sentiment out using the Straight banner die from the Bunch of Banners Framelits.  I cut the white card which I had stamped the sentiment on and it had left the centre where that was stamped but also a banner frame. So I cut another Banner in Calypso Coral to create a frame.  Cool trick!

Here is the inside of the card.  Just a simple “happy birthday” from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set.

I think I have to make some more of these cards.  Do you want to make one?  Here is how.

FLAP FOLD CARD

Metric: Cut an A4 sheet of card lengthways in half.  This will measure 29.7cm x 10.5cm.  Score on the long side at 10.5cm and 14cm.

Imperial:  Cut standard card lengthways to measure 11″ x 4.25″.  Score at 2″ and 7.5″.

Your Designer Series Paper pieces for the front panels are cut just slightly smaller.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great weekend,

DAFFODIL DAISY DELIGHT!

I realised I hadn’t shown you all my Delightful Daisy cards.  I started sharing them a couple of weeks ago but then there was something about a new catalogue coming out …:)

So I shall show you a few over the next couple of posts.

Today’s card is so bright and sunshine-y.  I love the gorgeous Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. The prints are so lovely.

This was the first time I had used the small flowers from the Daisy Delight stamp set.  I cut the circle from Stitched Shapes Framelits first so I could see where to position the flowers. The flower outline image and the filler image was stamped in Daffodil Delight and the stems were stamped in Old Olive.  I cut a scallop circle using the Layering Circle Framelits in Silver Foil.

The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics stamped on to Daffodil Delight card mat which was then embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

So happy and bright.

Thanks for looking,

Jenny

A DAISY MAKE AND TAKE!

This past weekend I was at a Craft Show with my Stamping buddy Leonie.  I love meeting people and sharing stamping with them.  It is lots of fun to share in their excitement and joy when they discover new things.

I thought I would show you the make and take we did at our stand.  We focused on the Daisy Delight Bundle. I am so glad that is available again.

This card was CASED from Julie Davison on Julie’s Stamping Spot. I couldn’t locate this exact card on her blog. I originally found it on Pinterest and it didn’t link back to the exact post.

The card is a very simple one but I think effective and uses the Daisy Delight Stamp set, the Daisy Punch and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  You can find all of them on Page 127 of the Annual Catalogue.  I changed the sentiment to Happy Birthday which is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set for the make and take.

This is the Bundle if you can’t get to see it in the Catalogue.

Now it’s back make sure you grab it in my store -> HERE now.

I have lots of cards using this bundle that I will share with you this week so be sure to check in.

See you tomorrow,

Jenny
