Stampin Friends Blog Hop -- Sympathy and Flowers



Good morning to everyone!  Welcome to my stop on the Stampin Friends Blog Hop!  I am excited to share with you that I am your Guest Blog Hopper this month.  **squeal**  The theme evolves around anything with Flowers and/or Sympathy...our choice.  I chose to go with flowers...a woman's best friend...right after the diamond, right?!! haha I'm going to share a sneak peek of a some new products that will be coming out in the new Annual Stampin' Up! catalog set to go live on June 1st....the Daisy Delight stamp set and the coordinating Daisy Punch.  This set will be offered as a bundle...a 10% savings.  I love bundles!!  Now, get ready to be WOW'd because I know you are going to love what I have created for this hop.

This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from Maureen Rauchfuss's blog. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the "NEXT" button at the bottom of each post; or, their name found in the blog hop participant list.



First up, is a clean-and-simple greeting card showing off the colors of Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand (cardbase), and a brand new In Color called Lemon Lime Twist.  Look how cool Lemon Lime Twist pairs up with the other colors...the perfect blend of brightness and very appealing.

Creative Tips:

  • To add some 'pop' and 'character', the Daisy image from the Daisy Delight stamp set was inked in VersaMark, stamped onto Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, covered with Clear Embossing Powder and melted with the Heat Tool.  To bring life to this gorgeous daisy, use the Stampin' Up! Bone Folder to give each petal a slight curl.  Before setting in place on the Pick A Pattern Designer Series paper and Lemon Lime Twist layers, die cut the Lemon Lime Twist banner strip using the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies set.  Adhere the Daisy with Stampin' Dimensionals over some Silver Metallic Thread and the Lemon Lime Twist banner strip.



  • The flower center comes from the Wood Words stamp set.  Another sneak peek at a new stamp set coming out June 1st.
  • The Designer Series Paper is part of a new series called Pick a Pattern.  The texture of the Flirty Flamingo cardstock was created using the Seaside Embossing Folder.


Paper Daisy Topiary:  I am in 7th Heaven when Stampin' Up! teams up two products to help me create quickly.  The Daisy Punch got quite the workout to change up a drab old foam cone to a beeee-u-tiful Daisy Topiary!  I used Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sugarplum, and Whisper White cardstock to create the flowers.  Some of the Daisy's were stamped with the Daisy image using Daffodil Delight and Sweet Sugarplum Classic Ink.  This is going to look amazing on my desk at the office (my other full-time job).  ;)
