It has cute images of paintbrushes, pens, scissors, twine and of course, a rubber stamp! It also has 3 cute sayings, but the one that I love the most is, "Do something creative every day."
The stamp image and saying really make it look crafty. Add the bow or a button for the perfect embellishment. What a great reminder to be creative, don't you think?
This week I made 3 cards featuring the Daisy Delight stamp set. I wanted to show the ladies who come over to stamp with me the diversity of the Daisy stamp. And I am loving this set.
Here is Card #2 (Card #1 is in the previous post), made with Bermuda Bay cardstock and accented with some sponging.

For this project, I used the Daisy punch and cut it in half to form a coneflower. It was stamped on the Daisy designer paper to give it a watercolor look. What do you think?

While browsing on Pinterest, I kept seeing samples using this thinlet set, So Detailed, and I thought that it just makes any card look so wonderful. I love this saying, "Everyone need a friend like you," from the Suite Sentiments stamp set and when I paired them together, I just love how this card turned out.
In my perfect dream world, I would love to send this card to every one of my friends. In reality, maybe I can just send them a link to this page and tell them that I love and appreciate them. If you are one of my friends, this page is for you. I ram really grateful for you. If you don't know me, then this page can also be for you. You are just a friend that I haven't met yet.
When I first saw the stamp set Cool Treats, I didn't think that much of it. Enter Pinterest samples, and I began to find so many cute ideas for it that I bought it. I offered a class where we made 4 cards using the pretty Tasty Treats designer paper and the Cool Treats stamp set. The strawberry paper in the set has a pretty glossy shine to it, making the card stand out even more than it appears in the photo.
The "You're Sweet" card uses punches for the saying. A cute and easy card to make. I got the idea from songofmyheartstamper.
Next, the Happiest Birthday card uses another sheet of the dsp and the layering oval framelits that I think make any saying look great. We embellished it by cutting out and adding two popsicles. This ideas is from theladyandherstamps. Cute, right?
The next two cards ideas are from prettypapercards and mystamplady.com. For the Happiest Birthday card, we stamped the cones and scoops and then cut them out and adhered them to the card. The cone in the middle has dimensionals under it to give it some pop.
I didn't have the framelits for this stamp set, so I cut out two circles for the sundae bowl on the Cherry card and cut them in half. I love how they came out. The ice cream scoops are punches and then I cut out the spoon and cherry for added interest. the saying on the inside says, "I hope your birthday is sprinkled with everything great."
I love how they all turned out. I think this was one of my favorite card classes yet. Have you tried this set? Which one is your favorite?
The first stamp set that caught my eye was the Daisy Delight bundle. I got the idea to make this little pot of flowers by Debbie Blake. I offered this project at my New Catalog Open House. All of the ladies loved it!
Then I put a dimensional between each flower and added one of the new gem embellishments to the top. I attached them to a floral wire by bending it into a circle and mounting it with some glue dots. Then I inserted them into a styrofoam floral base. I love the idea of putting the dragonfly into the flowers. It add such a nice touch, don't you think?
I stamped two of them and attached them to some floral wire also. Then I adhered the two dragonflies together so that you can see his wings from the top and from the bottom side.

Which one is one that you like the best?
I found this card idea on Pinterest (from Painted Orange blog) using the basket framelit from the Basket Builder dies and I just loved it. Of course, I had to buy the Basket Builder framelits to make this card! Ha ha.
Anyway, I just love how it came out. It looks like the basket of succulents are sitting on a shelf with a lace doily or tablecloth underneath. So pretty!

I found the idea for this card from Heidi Baks. I enjoyed using this bright and playful llama. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of him in the future. :)
I cased this right from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. I decorated the designer paper in a different style from the original and I'm pleased with the outcome. To make this card, use the Cupcakes and Carousel papers and stamp on them with the stamps from the dragonfly set. The card base is Bermuda Bay and the extra cut-out is from some copper paper that I had lying around.
Dragonfly set, have you tried it you? You will love the variety of things that you can do with it. :)

I used the Falling in Love designer paper and really love the elegant look of this card.
Have you tried this stamp set yet?
Last week I took out the framelits and made this interesting card. I started with watercolor paper and colored streaks with the watercolor pencils. Then I added some water with a paint brush and made the background look like watercolor. Then I added the dragonfly cut-out.
This card isn't your style? Try taking out the watercolor pencils and giving it a try anyway. It was a lot of fun to make. What color scheme can you come up with? What other framelits or shapes would look good on this kind of background?
I added some designer paper to coordinate and used the Petal Burst embossing folder for the background. I found this idea from stampnlinger.com.
Do you like the shimmery paper?
They are both the same card, only using two different sides of the designer paper, giving them each a very different look.
I got the idea from the a card that I've seen on Pinterest by Lisa Pretto. I changed the colors to reflect more of a spring-time look. It's like a tree that is still bare from winter but hoping for the green leaves of spring to come quickly!
The image is from the Avant Garden set that was featured in the Sale-a-bration catalog. I also like the cut out leaves as accent pieces. I found the idea on the Chase and Main page.
I had so much to "say" in the form of magazine photos and words that I ended up making two Vision Boards to include everything! One is for mostly for my home and family life and the other reflects my creative and crafty side. :)
To plan my Vision Board Night, I bought a foam poster board for each person and some glue sticks. Then I cleared off several tables for us to work on. Everyone brought magazines to share that we used for cutting photos and words from. I also had some scrapbook papers for the background.
Would you like to make a Vision Board? They are really very easy. And you could even invite some friends over to work on it with you. It doesn't have to be January for you to set goals. :)
Let me know if you make one and how it comes out.
