It was like Christmas here last night when UPS finally delivered my Stampin’ Up! preorder – new products coming in the Stampin’ Up! catalog for you in June! Not that I ordered everything (we just had limited choices for our preorder and I couldn’t even order all of that!) but what I got was exciting!
I quickly made this card with the Delightful Daisy Suite. The card base is Calypso Coral, one of the coordinating colors of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. I actually had the flower print pattern on the other side of this paper picked out to make the card. I love the flower prints in this package of paper! But for some reason, maybe because I was in a hurry and had to leave for an appointment, I just could not get it to come together. This is the lesson: just keep playing, you will get it!! I tried all sorts of placements, colors, etc. and it just didn’t please me. I happened to look on the other side of the paper and there was THIS pattern! I laid that down, put down the greeting, grabbed the punched daisies, and there it was! Love it!
The new Daisy Punch punches a large daisy! I think I will like punching two daisies and then layering them together. I put a Stampin’ Dimensional in between the two daisies and stamped the center with a stamp in the set, Daisy Delight. I also stamped two leaves from the set, you get the inside color and the outline of the leaf with two stamps. Then I just cut them out by hand with my Paper Snips. The greeting also comes in the stamp set along with another nice little phrase.
While you are waiting for your new catalog, don’t forget the Retiring Products and the Clearance Rack! If you are interested in the Eastern Palace Suite of products, be sure to order during May so you get the free gift! And I think you might want to put this Delightful Daisy Suite on your Wish List for the new catalog!
