Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! Strength.
Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
The Designer Series Paper that I chose to use was the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. This is a great 6″ x 6″ stack of various wood grain papers. My husband is a carpenter / cabinet builder so I knew I could make use of various woods. They worked great for the Daisy Delight Thank You card.
This card has an Early Espresso card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″). I layered a 5.5″ x 4.25″ piece of Wood Texture DSP over the top of that. I chose a rather dark wood to contrast my white daisies. The daisies were punched out of Whisper White card stock with the ever popular daisy punch. The center of the daisy was stamped with a small stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight stamp set in So Saffron ink onto So Saffron card stock and punched out with a 1/2″ circle punch. The leaves behind the daisies was cut from Always Artichoke card stock with a framelit die from the Everyday Jars framelit set.I layered two of the daisies over the top of each other offsetting the petals to get the whole daisy and then layered two half daisies over the top of each other (offsetting the petals) . I then used glue dots to adhere the leaves behind the flowers and the centers to the daisies. The bottom (half) daisy is adhered to the card with snail adhesive and the top (full) daisy is adhered with a stampin’ dimensional.The interior of the card is lined with a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White card stock with a 3/4″ strip of matching DSP adhered the the right side of the layer. I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” in the center with Early Espresso ink. I stamped the flower on the left side using Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Early Espresso inks. I’m in love with how it turned out!
