Do Something Creative Every Day

One of the new stamp sets that Stampin' Up has to offer is called Crafting Forever.  Okay, doesn't that sound just like me?  Seriously, I just move from room to room in my house making crafts.

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." 

I made this little magnet the size of an Artist Trading Card which is 3 1/2" x 2 1/2".  I stamped the paint brushes onto white cardstock and then again onto designer paper and cut out the pot.  I used the Delightful Daisy paper and then coordinated the rest of the colors in my project to match with Calypso Coral and Tranquil Tide. 

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?

It's a Daisy Craze!

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 the sponging, I punched 3 different sized circles with punches onto a piece of scrap cardstock and then sponged them onto the white layer with different colors.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky.  Once you are done with that, randomly stamp the Daisy image using black ink. 

Add a saying and some rhinestones to make it sparkle.  Very different look, right?  I got the idea for this card on Pinterest from Amanda Mertz.

Card #3 is a bright and cheery yellow Thank You card.  For this card, I used thick white cardstock for the base, added black frame and some Daffodil Delight designer paper.  Then I used a circle framelit and added stitches with a white chalk pen.  I stamped and punched two daisies for the center.  I put the dimensionals under the black circle and under the saying.  The idea is from dutchstampin.blogspot.nl.

There are so many different ways to use the Daisy stamp set!  I think I've only just begun.  :)
