June 1st is a big day for stampers and scrapbookers!
Tomorrow is the day Stampin’ Up! will release the list of all of the retiring stamp sets and accessories. Make sure you stop back tomorrow to see the list posted here on my blog. Retiring products may sell out quickly.
I don’t know why I don’t use this Upsy Daisy stamp set more often. It is definitely one of my favourites and I love the way the big bold image of the daisies fills the card. The finished size of this card is 5-1/2" x 5-1/2".
I wanted to have a shadow behind the focal image so I stamped once on a Window Sheet and heat embossed with white embossing powder and stamped a second time on cardstock. I cut both pieces generously so I could line them up and trim a second time. Stampin’ Dimensionals were positioned between the window sheets and the cardstock to let the light get in between the two. A frame of Melon Mambo cardstock was added on top.
This card needed Melon Mambo embellishments so I created my own with the clear buttons. If you don’t own the clear buttons, you should! Simply punch any cardstock or paper and adhere behind the button with a mini glue dot. You can add thread or twine to finish the buttons or use the white gel pen as I did here to add faux thread.
We have had a lot of dark and dreary days here so I needed a bold and colourful card to bright my Monday. Enjoy!
