IN THE TROPICS DAISY!

I had this idea in my head for a little while and thought I would give it a try. I have to say it didn’t work out as well as I had imagined. But, … I’m going to show anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I first saw the pineapple top in the In The Tropics Dies I wondered if it would make a grassy clump. That idea could work with the Daisy Lane set or similar.

After I cut the “grass” I sponged the ends with the Old Olive ink.

The patterned paper is from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper pack.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set and was cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

What do you think of this idea? Yay or Nay?

I’m keeping this brief today. Our computer has died so doing this on the IPad and Phone. I’m adaptable right. 😆 So apologies roday for the standard of the post.

Thanks for visiting me.

DAISY LANE GIFT CARD HOLDER!

I can now share this project with you as I know it has been delivered.  I recently had a request for a Gift Card for one of my customers.  It was ordered by her Sister In Law who contacted me.  Of course one doesn’t provide just a Gift Card.  It must be dressed up.  So here is the Gift Card packaging.

It’s just a simple style.  I will share more about that further below.  The front is decorated with daisies.  2 large Daisies were stamped and punched with the Daisy Punch.  2 smaller Daisies were stamped and punched with the Medium Daisy Punch.  They were all layered together and curled up a little.  A Clear Gem was added in the centre.

The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  See the leaf?  I ran a score line down the centre of the leaf and folded it slightly.  This adds a little dimension to your leaf.

The Sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings.  I stamped it on a little strip of white card and sponged the edges with the Petal Pink ink.

The paper is from the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.

This is the inside of the holder.  I stamped some of the fern leaves inside.

The colours look very different in the photos to each other. I can say they are both the same one but the lighting changed effecting the colour of the holder.

To make your own:

Cut your card to 10.5cm x 15.5cm.  Score at 6cm and 13cm.

4 1/8″ x 6 1/8″.  Score at 2 3/8″ x 5 1/8″

I stapled the small flap down but you could adhere it with strong tape.  Be sure the tape is not too wide so you have enough room for the card to fit. Decorate it as you like.  Card mat for the front  and paper piece is slightly smaller on each layer (4mm or 1/8″).

Hope that helps.

Are you in need of a Gift Card?  Maybe for yourself (because it is the perfect gift for you) or it is for a friend or family.  You can order it to any value.  I have Christmas Gift Cards too so keep that in mind as Christmas approaches.

Thanks for visiting,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #73 – DAISY LANE TEA BOX!

I have a sweet little Daisy Box for you for Wednesday’s WOW! #73.  You could use this to gift Tea Bags or some small chocolates.  I have the Tutorial below.

It doesn’t take long at all to make.  I used the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper for the strip around it.  The daisies were stamped from the Daisy Lane set and punched with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch.  I did 2 of each and layered them together.  The leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch.  If you check the leaves closer I scored along the centre and then curled them up a little.  This gives them a little dimension.

Here is how to make your Box.

Tea Bag Box

NB: Measurements are in both Metric and Imperial.  (apologies in advance for the 16th” measures).

Cut card to 19cm x 14cm (7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″).

Score card at 8cm and 11cm on the 19cm side . (On the 7 1/2″  side score at 3 1/8″ and 4 5/16″)

Score card at 3cm and 11cm on the 14cm side. (On the 5 1/2″ side score at 1 3/16″ and 4 5/16)

Cut Designer Series Paper piece at 6cm x 28cm (2 3/8″ x 11″).

To assemble the box.  Fold and score on all the lines.  Cut up on the small score lines on the long sides of the card.  See below.

Assemble the box by firstly adding adhesive to the 2 small tabs placing it on the outside of the tab. Fold up and bring one of the side panels over to adhere on to the tab.  Do this on both sides of the box.  Add adhesive along the outside of this long tab and then adhere the other long tab down on to this. This forms your box.

Place adhesive, (I use Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive) along the back of the paper strip and wrap around the box and adhere down. Decorate as you like.

Hopefully that makes sense.  I was a little time pressed today to get the full photos together.  If you need more information, drop me a comment and if you would like a video then let me know.

Enjoy making the box.

FLIRTY DAISIES!

This week I am sharing some Daisy cards with you using the Daisy Lane Bundle.  

I am sharing this card with you first.  I am not sure about it still but, well … I am still putting it out here as it may inspire someone – in some way.

We are just keeping it simple with this one with a little stamping of the daisies in Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry.

Just one stamped and punched daisy on one of the daisies to highlight it.  Add a little Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

Sometimes you can just do simple right. 🙂

I will share more daisies with you again next post,

Jenny

FAREWELL TO THE 2017-2019 INCOLORS!

I am sad that these colours are leaving us.  I have to say I have really liked working with most of these colours.  Especially Lemon Lime Twist.  I thought I would share a few photos of projects I have made over the last 2 years as we send off these colours.

At the beginning of the 2017 Catalogue when these colours launched I had to show them all together with a flower display using the Daisy Punch.

I like to create a group of cards using the Incolors.  These ones use the Detailed Floral Thinlits.

I think Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist has been a popular colour combination I have used over the last 2 years.

Lemon Lime Twist is just as nice on it’s own. It does seem a lot more intense though.

Tranquil Tide.  I used it a little bit.  It was a nice shade of green.  This one was using the Eastern Beauty stamp set.

Fresh Fig and Powder Pink I haven’t used all that much.  But here they are together with Berry Burst.

So we farewell the 2017-2019 Incolors.  What colour are you saddest to see going?

Inkpads and some of these colours of cardstock are still available to order.  Be sure to stock up if you like them.  The Reinkers have all sold out though so you are a little late with those.

See the retiring incolors and to order in my store head-> HERE 

Please use the Host Code: EUEAGC3N when ordering.  Thank you kindly. And be sure to not mark your order anonymous or I won’t be able to send you out a little Thank You. 🙂

Next week we will be welcoming in the 2019-2021 Incolors.  I have been playing with these a lot over the weekend so I watch out for some projects soon.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you again.

DELIGHTFUL DAISY DSP MAKE AND TAKE CARD!

This next card I made as a possible contender for a Make and Take card for the Craft Show.  It didn’t make the cut but I think it shows the lovely Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the Daisy Delight Bundle.

This card was inspired by 2 cards I saw on Pinterest by Dawn Olchefske.  I wanted it to be a quick and easy card so  I used the different ideas for this card.

I made the card as a one layer card on Thick Whisper White card base.  One long strip of the Delightful Daisy DSP was adhered across the bottom and a different smaller piece was adhered to the top left hand side.

The Daisy was stamped in Calypso Coral ink on Calypso Coral card and then punched out with the Daisy Punch.  Yes it is Calypso Coral.  It looks more orange.

For the leaves I cut a daisy out with the Daisy Punch from Tranquil Tide ink.  Then snipped a few petals to adhere behind the daisy.   I punched a small circle out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch from Tranquil Tide to go in the centre of the flower.  Then added a Gold Faceted Gem. 

The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

More Daisy Cards coming soon,

Jenny
