Daisies For You

Today I want to share with you a simple Sympathy card I made for a dear friend.  I turned to the Daisy Punch to make a sweet card.  I used Crushed Curry Ink to sponge the edges of my flowers punch ed out from Crushed Curry Cardstock to give them more depth.  I folded them in half and added dimensionals between the fold to help them pop a bit.  I added the Old Artichoke stems.  The Burlap Background is a new background stamp we have and I love it!  I cut the corners out and cut fringe all the way around it to give it a frayed look.  The Sympathy saying is from the Rose Wonder stamp set and cut out with the matching thinlit die in the Rose Garden set.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  Have a good day!

3 - D Thursday Share - My Turn!

Hello, and welcome to 3 - D Thursday!  Each week one of our team members creates a fun project that comes with a FREE downloadable Project Sheet for you, so that you can recreate one of your own.  Today it's my turn!  I have a super fun little scrapbook for you!  Check it out!
One of my favorite things to do is create mini scrapbooks.  Our family had pictures taken last fall and I thought what better way to showcase them then in a little pocket scrapbook I could carry with me.
I made the scrapbook case from an empty Bitty Bow plastic box.  I love when I can take something old or used and recycling it into something new.
The pages for the scrapbook are also recycled from the heavy backing board from any pack of Designer Paper that Stampin' Up! sells.
The color pallet I chose for my project was fall themed.  Using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Garden Green.
The stamped sentiment is from the set Paisleys and Posies.
The leaves were stamped and the diecut using the stamp set Colorful Seasons and matching thinlits.
Be sure and download the FREE project sheet and make your own!

3-D Thursday FREE Project

Hello!  Welcome to another 3-D Thursday FREE project share and PDF.  This weeks project is brought to you by the very talented Sarah Wills.  Sarah has created a bright and cheery Ghiradelli Chocolate box holder that would make a great back to school teacher gift, a special friend gift or even a thinking of you gift.
The new Daisy Punch from Stampin' Up! has been so popular this year that they have already depleted their stock twice!  It's back in stock now so grab yours before it's gone again.  The Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP makes the perfect little box to showcase this cute bouquet.
Isn't it a fun idea how that Sarah has used the chocolates to separate the flowers.  What a great idea!  Below you can find a listing of all the items that were used for this project and also a link to click on to download your FREE project sheet so you can create your own little flower pot.  I would love for you to order any of the items from my online store through the link given in my sidebar.  As always thanks for stopping by and come again so we can "Stamp A Little Longer".

Happy 70th Anniversary!

So my mom ask me to make an anniversary card for a very special couple that would be celebrating their 70th Anniversary.  Bob and Nancy Larson are indeed a very special couple.  Bob started  the Pinehaven Christian Childrens Ranch in Montana with just a dream.   He wanted to help kids that everyone had given up on to become great kids.  The ranch teaches kids the meaning of hard work and gives them self worth while teaching the love of God.
Here's the card I designed for them.
I decided to make the card a 5" x 7" card so all the members from our church could sign it before sending it to them.  I started with a Whisper White base, then added a payer of gold embossed acetate cardstock (retired),  I then added a layer of Sugar Plum and then topped it off with a layer of our beautiful Petal Garden DSP stack.
#144168
Using our Layering Ovals Thinlits and Our Gold Glimmer Paper and Whisper White cardstock I cut out a scallop oval and a regular oval and layered them together.  I then used the Large Numbered Framelits and Matching stamp set to cut out the numbers, stamped the "TH", and added the Anniversary banner to finish it off.  It was actually a very easy card.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Oh, I have had a few request to add a box so that you can be notified by email when I post to my blog, so I have added that to the top lefthand corner.  Have a good day everyone!
