Today is my little girl’s birthday! In just two short months she will be walking down the aisle…
So in honor of her today…here is a birthday card made with the Daisy Delight Bundle.
It’s so easy to create a half daisy- just cut a full size punched flower in half and stagger the petals- a neat alternative look to do with the Daisy Bundle. As you can see, I made a trio of cards using sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I used the coordinating Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper- one of my faves this year!

Oh, here is a trendy stamp set, the Coffee Cafe!
Check out this Stampin’ Up video on how many cool things you can do with the Bundle!
I made this card with the Coffee Cafe Bundle lickety split with the quick and easy Coffee Cups framelits. Look at the texture on the cup holders! Just think of all the ways you can use this with a coffee gift card…

Now, onto fall…I used the the Old Olive blocked ombre pattern from the Color Theory DSP on this card. I put some color behind the adirondack chair using the Touches of Textures stamp set to create some depth to the focal square. A copper foil maple die cut adds some flair to the card as well:)
