Today’s card gives a little twist to the Pretty Label Punch by using the negative (leftover) part of the cardstock instead of the punched out piece, thus turning a negative into a positive! After stamping the piece of Powder Pink cardstock with the “speckles” from the Touches of Texture stamp set, the Pretty Label Punch was punched out and set aside for a future project, while the negative piece was centered over a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was stamped with the floral image from Label Me Pretty. This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add depth. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set and is punched out with the 1-3/8″ Circle Punch. Pairing the soft feminine flowers in the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper with the pretty floral images in the stamp set ties it all together flawlessly.

When I attended Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage event in Minneapolis back in April, I saw some cards on the display boards featuring the This Little Piggy stamp set. I fell in love with it immediately! The images are just adorable with four different happy little piggies and and sweet sentiments. I knew I’d be putting this set on my “must have list”. Well, lucky for me I didn’t have to wait long, because Stampin’ Up! gave everyone at the event the This Little Piggy stamp set. This is the very first card I created with new product from the catalog and I just love it! I mean, how can you not smile when you see the smile on that little pigs face? Right?

Let’s Take a Closer Look
The image was stamped on Whisper White cardstock with Basic Black ink (you’ll always want to use either the Basic Black or Basic Gray inks when you’re watercoloring). Next I water colored the pig with Powder Pink ink and the Aqua Painter for a very light little pig. I used colored in the frass and the stem with the Lemon Lime Twist Marker and the flower center with Daffodil Delight. I added texture with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and tossed in lots of layers with the use of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and matted rectangles and circles. I also added a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon.

Today I’m sharing with you a card I made for our demonstrator gathering last weekend. It features the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch. I made the same exact card 5 times with the only difference being a new In Color on each card. Each one features the Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack and the 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in the featured color. Both the sentiment and the daisy and leaf images come from the Daisy Delight stamp set. This stamp set and punch (which can be purchased in a bundle for a 10% savings) was so popular during the demonstrator pre-order period, the sales of it exceeded the forecast for the product, so the Daisy Delight Bundle is not available until June 26th.
2017-2018 In Colors
Lemon Lime Twist
I love how each card uses the exact same layout, stamp set and accessory yet the mood of each card is so different simply by changing up the colors. Look closely and you’ll see…on some of the cards I used the Clear faceted gems and on some I used the Gold Faceted gems…they are perfect on the daisies! So, what do you think….what is your favorite new In Color? I’m having a hard time trying to decide between Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist.
