Upsy Daisy Birthday

July 12, 2013

I had some time to play with the Upsy Daisy image in the Best of Flowers stamp set.  This image is really small compared to the one in the original stamp set but it is really cute.

Upsy-Daisy-BirthdayI embossed Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Pool Party card.  I embossed a strip of Smoky Slate card using one of the folders from the Delicate Designs and attached it to the card front.  I stamped the image onto Whisper White card using Calypso Coral ink, attached it to Calypso Coral card and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the greeting from the Petite Pairs stamp set onto Whisper White card using Smoky Slate ink, punched it using the Large Oval Punch and attached it to a Pool Party Scalloped OvalUpsy-Daisy-Birthday-2I attached the greeting using a dimensional under the right hand side so that I could position it partially over the image panel.

I attached a narrow piece of embossed Smoky Slate card to a strip of Calypso Coral which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  This embossed/punched piece is attached to Whisper White card which has a greeting from Petite Pairs stamped using Smoky Slate ink.  The Whisper White card is attached to the inside of the Pool party card.  Upsy-Daisy-Birthday-3

I really love the images in the Best of Flower stamp set.  This is the first in a series of Best Of stamp sets which are being released this year to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 25 year Anniversary.  A second set Best of Butterflies has also been released and there will be another set released in August.  These stamp sets will be available for purchase until April 2014.  This is a great way to collect lots of your favourite images from the last 25 years.   Most of the images will be released in a smaller format than the original image.  Check them out here.

I hope I have inspired you to take a closer look at these gorgeous stamp sets and perhaps to make one or two or more of them your own.   If you would like to recreate this card, you can purchase all of the supplies here.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Loving the colour combination Kris. I am just looking at the Flower set to purchase myself. The small strip of embossing across the middle sets the whole card. Lovely inside too. TFS
