What Will You Stamp #124 – Daisy Delight

Daisies have totally been the hit of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

So much so, that the punch is currently on ‘unorderable’ status while the factory goes into overtime making more!

Stampin’ Up! addicts bought the entire supply of punches twice over – a whole year’s supply in less than 2 months!

What Will You Stamp is featuring the stamp set this week, so it seems like a good time to get the daisies inky again.

I chose one of the beautiful new In Colors – Berry Burst – and combined the daisy centrepiece with stamps from the Wood Words stamp set.

The floral stamp coordinates fabulously!

I’ve stamped the daisy three times in Berry Burst and then Aqua Painted using Berry Burst again – but quite diluted to get a lighter shading.

For a three layer daisy, you need to line them up in thirds.  If you try to fill the gap with the second daisy you’ll have nowhere to put the last one.

I love that the Faceted Gems fit so nicely in the middle of the daisy – it’s a great finish!

And the final flourish for my daisy was some tweaked & teased Copper Trim.

Have you tried this?  It’s double layered, so simply cut through the side of the ribbon and then pull apart!!!

Do you love the daisy in this colour, or are you a traditional yellow & white daisy lover???

How wonderful is ink & paper – we can create all kinds of daisies!

I’ve got an idea brewing based on a book I’m reading at the moment…. let’s see if I can make it happen!

Oh So Popular Daisy Punch!

Stampin’ Up! customers loves a good punch bundle – and the Daisy punch with coordinating Daisy Delight stamp set has been a hit!

During the demonstrator pre-order period and the first 2 weeks of the catalogue, we’ve bought & sold so many Daisy punches that the company is unable to keep up with supply!

That’s amazing!!!

So, from tonight, this punch will temporarily be turned unorderable until more stocks arrive in late July.

If it’s on your wishlist, but you haven’t ordered it yet, you may still be able to sneak in an order today.

Daisy Punch

$31.00

You can continue to order the stamp set, but as the punch is unavailable, the bundle will become unorderable also.


We loved using it at my launch on the weekend.

This is the other make & take card that attendees created.

The punch is wonderfully efficient, but fussy cutting the daisies is totally possible (just ask Linda!!!!).


The patterns the Delightful Daisy DSP are gorgeous and will also continue to be available!

So, although we’ll be eagerly awaiting the return of the daisy punch, there’s plenty of beautiful products in this suite that you can buy to fulfil your daisy needs!

Pretty gems anyone???  PS, these are amazing with the Eastern Palace suite!

If you miss out on the Daisy punch and would like to be notified when it comes back into stock, let me know!

Just Add Ink #362 – Colour Combo

Happy New Catalogue Day!   If you need more details and to see my top 10 list- see my post from this morning.

Tonight I’m sharing a card I made using the Just Add Ink Challenge Colours and some of the products from the 2017-2018 that are no longer upcoming, but here!!!

Image may contain: text

I, and I’m imaging many other crafters, will admit to these colours being out of my comfort zone.  Orange isn’t on high rotation for me – and with aqua/teal/blue…. I had to dig deep!

But they call it a challenge – yes?

I had fun putting my new products together.

This card is made using the Daisy Delight bundle (stamp set & punch) with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.

The daisy is layered 3 times for lots of texture.  I stamped each daisy on Whisper White cardstock in Peekaboo Peach, coloured it with more Peach ink using my Aqua Painter and then cut each daisy out.

Don’t forget when mounting your daisy stamp, that you want to have petals pointing straight up & down (ie, 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock).  Stamp this way onto your cardstock and it will make it lining up the punch a breeze!

When putting the daisy layers together, space so that petal takes up a third of the gap between the petals (12 o’clock, 4 o’ clock, 8 o’clock).

If you try to put it in the middle (at 6 o’clock), the third daisy will sit behind the first.

How cute is that medallion as a backdrop?  The Eastern Palace Suite was available during May as a pre-release but only in a bundle.  You can now buy each products from the suite individually.

I highly recommend you add the Eastern Medallion Thinlits to you collection!

I carried the theme through to the inside of the card…

Hopefully this will inspire you to add your own entry.  We’d love to see what you make!

There seems to be a common theme with the design team creations this week.  Can you guess what it is???

 

OnStage 2017 – Daisy Delight Presentation

OnStage 2017 was an incredibly magical experience for me.

Part of that magic was sharing it with my team, meeting up with old friends, making new friends & seeing new products.

I’m not even sure how we packed all that excitement into one day!

This event had a new magic for me – presenting a product suite OnStage in front of 200 of my fellow stamping addicts!

I had the pleasure of introducing everyone to the Delightful Daisy suite – a stamp set & punch bundle with coordinating accessories!

I had so much fun creating my samples and sharing them – I felt so lucky!!!

My presentation went well and I’ve been told my enthusiasm for all things Stampin’ Up! shone through.

There was me on the stage with a cool projector screen…

And I was also on 2 big screens – crazy!!!

I had a few themes for my presentation.

These were the cards I designed for a beginner class.  They would also make great make & takes.

One of the great things about this bundle is its usefulness for a new stamper.  No other tools required!

Although no other tools are required to enjoy this bundle, I did through a few sneaky temptations for the beginners like the Stitched Shapes (first step punch bundle, next step Big Shot!), heat embossing (we all love a good wow!) and another punch (Triple Banner – my fave).


Then I stepped up the ideas for a product based class, with a scrapbook page using the beautiful DSP…

A project set using more beautiful DSP…

And a fancy fold easel card…

Have you noticed that all the daisies are stamped & punched twice?  This adds fullness to your daisy, making it lush & beautiful!


The next set of ideas were for saying ‘thanks’ – since this is a popular crafting need.  Thanks for customers, thanks for hostess & thanks for other special people!

This gift card set uses the negative from the punch, – which gives your customers more ideas on how they can use their products…

And since I don’t love making boxes, the daisy seemed like a perfect embellishment for one of the new gold striped bags…

That gold sequin trim is amazing in real life!!!  And the daisy looks awesome in gold embossing!


Of course, I couldn’t help myself but to make a few samples using alternative daisy ideas!!!

Add some colour and they become gerberas…

Use them for cute birdie wings….

Or cut the middle & tips from the petals to create a windmill…


This bundle was on Product Purchase Premiere for OnStage attendees, so I know it will be arriving shortly for many demonstrators.

You’re going to see lots more amazing samples as the weeks tick down until the catalogue launch on 1st June.  If any of these ideas will work for you or your business, please use them!

If you’d like the opportunity to attend Stampin’ Up! events and order amazing new products early, then join my Paper Adventures team!

Who knew, 5 years ago, that one stamping class would lead to these kind of opportunities!!!

So amazing!!!
