Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two) was a song written in 1892 and it became a huge hit immediately– kind of like Stampin’Up!’s Daisy Punch! The punch and bundle sold out almost immediately upon the release of the new catalog. I’m happy to report they are back in stock and you can now purchase them in my online store.
This card is all about texture, from the watercolor paper, embossing, double layers of the Daisy, the faux stitching on the edges, the banner and the copper trim. I love that copper trim-sleek and slim as is , or pull it out on the sides for a more lacy or netting look.
After a month of zero to no crafting due to life getting in the way, I decided I need to make some changes. I want to create and share more often. And a simple card can be just as lovely and provide that creative outlet as a more involved card with many steps. And oh how I’ve struggled with that concept. The old KISS rule – keep it simple silly – really is true. Anyway, on to my new weekly feature.
It’s Throwback Thursday! I’m planning on sharing retired stamps from my stash that need some loving. This adorable little elephant and all his accessories are a part of Henry Says. And Henry says happy birthday!
Colors are Pool Party and Melon Mambo. The Tiny Triangles embossing folder adds texture and interest to the layers.
And here’s my final challenge card – perfect for welcoming a little one. Pea in the pod is from Friends and Flowers. I stamped the image in Always Artichoke and colored the image with a blender pen. And only fussy cut the little curlicue – the pea in the pod was punched out with the Festive Flower Builder Punch. The striped paper is from the Wildflower Fields designer paper, which is free with any $50 purchase. The Large Polka Dot textured impressions embossing folder adds more dimension, and the Pool Party Glimmer Ribbon finishes it off.
