Daisy Delight

Daisy DelightI absolutely love this stamp set and punch.  It is so versatile and I thought I would share this arrangement I made.  Keep in mind I am not a florist but I think it turned out pretty nice.

I used the Daisy Delight stamp set located on page 127 or you can view it here. The Daisy punch located on page 206 or view it here.  This set has been so popular that it has gone on back order however we should be receiving more on June 26th.

To make an arrangement you will stamp the flower on daffodil delight and whisper white card stock using daffodil delight ink.  You will need two per flower.  Punch a 1" circle out of cardstock and make a small slit.  Using 18" flower wire bend one end to an small L shape.  Slide the wire through the slit on the 1" circle and apply hot glue and hold until it dries.  Punch a 1/2" black circle for each flower and add the Gold Faceted Gems (144141) to each center.Once you have completed this for all flowers arrange in a vase, mason jar or any item you want to use.  Add small white flowers or baby's breath to fill in between flower stems.

Click either of the links above to place your order on or after June 26th.  Make sure to use the June's Hostess code which is located on the right side of the page.

Embossing Paste Technique


Hooray! The new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog is here! It's time to check out the terrific new stamps and stamping supplies. What do you look at first in a new catalog? Stamps, papers, punches, or maybe coordinating suites? I love learning new techniques, so I usually dive into the easy-to-miss section where embossing powders, specialty inks, and other goodies are found. In the new catalog it's titled "Coloring Tools" and starts on page 200.

The new product I'm excited about and on the top of  my recommendation list is Embossing Paste. From stenciled texture to colored accents this new product is one you are going to love.

Embossing has just been raised a level with Embossing Paste. Embossing paste is a thick white paste that you spread on cardstock to create an embossed look and feel. It's different from heat embossing, it creates a rough, irregular texture that is all the rage.

This simple technique is limited only by your imagination. You can color the paste with any of our ink refills or make masks using Thinlet dies and Window Sheets. Can't wait to see what you create!
