The Last Two

If you've been checking my posts this week, you will see the variety of cards you can make with the same stamp set and designer series paper. These are the final two using the Delightful Daisy Suite. The greetings, however, come from the Best Birds stamp set because I just love the fonts and styles.

I just love making quick cards using Designer Series Paper. Here are two more cards from my eight-cards-in-a-flash set with the Delightful Daisy dsp. Other than the "Praying for You..." (Thoughts & Prayers stamp set), everything on these two cards comes from the Delightful Daisy Suite found on pages 126-127 in the annual catalog.

The Hostess and Delightful Daisy

The purpose of stamping a set of cards and using the formula for cutting the elements is to enable you to make lots of cards quickly. However, I have a great deal of difficulty leaving anything simple or even stamping a number of them just alike. But the cards were still quicker than designing individual cards.

For these two cards, I incorporate the hostess set, Tranquil Tulips. I think that stamp set coordinates well with the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

Eight Cards in a Flash with Designer Series Paper

After finishing the set of cards where we made our own designer paper, I decided to whip up another set of eight cards using an 8-inch wide piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. I then gave most of them as a gift. I flipped the dsp over for two of the cards, but it was still the same piece of paper. These are the two cards I made using the flip side of the paper.


I used Calypso Coral paper and ink along with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight inks. For the bottom card, I stamped the daisy in Calypso Coral on Blushing Bride card stock before punching.

Final Three

Sorry it has taken so long to finish posting the "Eight Cards in a Flash".  Here are the final three cards we made (see previous posts for more information). All cards include designer paper created by stamping all over an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of Whisper White card stock using the Painted Harvest stamp set and Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede and Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin' Pads. This first card also uses the retired Acorny Thank You stamp set with its coordinating Acorn Builder Punch.


 The card below employs the Stylized Birthday stamp (page 80 in the annual catalog).


This final card is made with the Basket of Wishes stamp set and blender pens.

And Still More

I truly love the Painted Harvest stamp set and making my own designer paper was so much fun. I have to admit that the second time I stamped a full sheet of sunflowers, acorns and leaves, I placed the flowers closer together. I stamped the flowers first and then added the leaves, acorns and dots. But the cards I am sharing are the ones I made as samples before my class, "Eight Cards in a Flash".

I thought it would be fun to have a sunflower peeking out from behind the designed layers. Add a ribbon and a greeting and I have a great Thanksgiving card.





For this card, I used the sunflower as the focal point.




I had a somewhat crumpled half doily laying around, so I scraped some Crushed Curry ink across its surface to use on my card. My original intention was to stamp the words in Tranquil Tide in the bottom right corner, although stamping the words all over was not part of that original plan, hence the blank space. But somehow I picked up one of the dimensional papers on my stamp and ruined the phrase at the top. But, as we stampers often say, every mistake is a creative opportunity. The banner with punched out leaves was my creative solution in this case. I would have placed it lower on the card if I had not had to cover up my blooper.
