Upsy Daisy!

Last Friday I posted two items HERE made with Inspired by Nature, a stamp set in the Silhouette Style Watch in the new catalog. Today's featured set is Upsy Daisy, a simply wonderful set that is currently on sale! (that's even better!) I'm really enjoying this new Style Watch and having fun playing with these stamps!

The card on the left features two of the new 2008-2009 In Color®: Baja Breeze and Pacific Point. What a soothing color combo! The base is Pacific Point (the darker and richer of the two) layered with Baja Breeze that has been stamped in the same color with the Polka Dot background. The daisies are stamped in Pacific Point onto white cardstock. I used my sponge daubers (so handy!) for adding Baja Breeze around the edges and a touch of Barely Banana in the center to brighten up the composition.

The sentiment was stamped in the upper right corner using Pacific Point ink also. I think the softness of the color scheme conveys the same message as the words also.

This is layered onto more Pacific Point cardstock which has been treated on one side with the new Scalloped Edge Punch! How quick and easy it is to make a perfect scalloped edge now!

I just love the new In Color ribbon also! It is 5/8" wide grosgrain with two narrow white woven stripes down the center and comes in all six new In Colors! Pacific Point is used on this card; a new Flower Brad is opened then clasped around the ribbon and inserted through the cardstock. The flower is colored in with a coordinating Sharpie pen! What a fun touch to carry out the color scheme.


This Upsy Daisy card presents the New In Colors of Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss (and just a touch of Tangerine Tango!). The daisy stamp was inked in pink (um, that rhymes, lol!) then I tapped a sponge dauber inked with Tangerine Tango to the stamp before stamping on the pink cardstock to achieve some depth and shading. Another sponge dauber was used to bring in some Kiwi Kiss around the image after stamping. The image was cut down so I still have another piece for a future project. I layered the larger piece on Tangerine Tango; this was applied to the card over a piece of the new Kiwi Kiss grosgrain ribbon.

The base card is Kiwi Kiss layered with Pink Pirouette and stamped with the Sanded background stamp in Tangerine Tango. The sentiment is stamped in Tangerine on Pink then punched out with the NEW! Wide Oval Punch. Sponged on the edged with Kiwi then layered over a Scallop Circle punch cut apart, the sentiment is accented with a sparkly pink Rhinestone brad (just love these!)

Thanks for dropping by! Have a great weekend!
