Circle Punches

Endless possibilities with In the City Host set

Welcome to the block card made with In the City host set from Stampin' Up!

I finally pulled out this stamp set and I am in love!  I will admit, at first all those little stamps where intimidating, but once I got going, the possibilities were endless! 

 

This was my first go.  I made the same basic card, with changes in the details, for 2 separate purposes.  The first was to welcome a friend into her brand new home, and the second, to help a friend welcome a beautiful baby girl.  I was able to customize the house to look like the real deal, and if you look closely on the second card, I swapped out the sun for a stork, delivering a baby girl.

  In the City host set makes the perfect baby card

 

 This set makes customizing a card, right down to the little details, a snap! 

 

In the City stamp set has all the little details, including a moving van!

 

Both cards were made using our convenient whisper white notecards & envelopes, and the background was made quick and easy with a layer of Pick a Pattern designer series paper layered onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  Once I created my mini scene, I used the 2" circle punch for the perfect sized circle to coordinate with the Starburst punch, which made the Real Red layer beneath it (Melon Mambo for the baby card).  The beautiful 3/8" shimmer ribbon in black was the perfect accent to finish it up, when layered with the sentiment. 

 

What is a host set you may ask?  It is an exclusive stamp set only available to customers who host a workshop, or place an order of $150 or more.  This entitles you to host rewards, AKA FREE stuff!  You may choose to spend your host dollars however you choose, which includes purchasing these exclusive stamp sets.  And this set is included.  It is an amazing deal for 60 stamps!  And I promise, it will not disappoint!

Hello There with Delightful Daisy

Welcome back!

 

Delightful Daisy DSP with Pieces & Patterns stamp set

 

Today I am featuring a card using the very popular designer series paper pack, Delightful Daisy.  It coordinates with the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch, however, today I have paired it with the adorable stamp set, Pieces & Patterns, which has this fun circle sentiment stamp.  

Next time you you need a quick card, this is a good one to choose!  I love when I find a great stand-alone dsp.  One that carries a card.  It makes it so easy to create something beautiful, which needs minimal fuss to look great!  And although I am not a big flower crafter, this dsp is beautiful!

 

The colors for this card are simple:

 

 

To recreate this project, cut an Old Olive card base of  4 1/4" x 11", and score at 5 1/2".  Than cut a piece of dsp to 3 3/4" x 5", and adhere to the card front.  Stamp the sentiment in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punch out with the 1 3/4" circle punch.  Punch out one piece of Old Olive cardstock using the new Starburst punch, and adhere to the card front.  This is one of my new favorite punches, and is a must-have!  Fold a small piece of Double-Stitched Daffodil Delight ribbon in half, and adhere to the back of the sentiment circle, than adhere on top of the starburst using dimensionals.  To finish it nicely, scatter a few Glitter Enamel Dots across the front, and it's done!

 

Hope you enjoyed this card!  To make one of your own, pick up the supplies in my store by using the Shop Now tab in the sidebar, or by clicking on any of the items listed below.
