Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Mega Blog Hop


July is an exciting time for Stampin' Up fans as that is when the main catalog is released with a bundle of new stamp sets and supplies. Members of the Stampin' Addicts online group have joined together to showcase some of these in this weekends BLOG HOP.   You can click on the Blog Hop link to see all the participants or you can follow the links at the bottom of this post as all the hop participants are linked in a circle.

If you have been hopping in order you will have just seen the oh-so-talented Lisa Young's wonderful projects featuring the Creative Elements stamp set.  I am sure you have all added that set to your wish list now haven't you?

I am delighted to showcase the Sunflower background stamp.  Now I have a disclaimer... with the hot, hot weather we have been having I could not think fall colors and stamping yet.  The Shasta Daisies in my perennial garden have been blooming abundantly and low and behold---all my sunflowers turned into daisies!  I do love this stamp and as the leaves start to turn I am sure you will see sunflowers on some of my projects but for now.... it is time to enjoy SUMMER!
My first project is a get well gift basket and card.  The basket contains tissues,  a tea bag holder and of course....chocolate.  The card is a larger size - 7x7 - to have enough room for a group to sign and write messages to the recipient.  I thought the yellow paper from the Domestic Goddess DSP pack looked like rays of sunshine so I used that as the background for the card.
I stamped the "Sunflower" with Whisper White Craft Ink on glossy white cardstock and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  Then I used a sponge dauber and applied Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Classic Ink to the image.  A quadruple looped bow adds a splash of color and texture.
Next up is a modern art version of the daisy.  I stamped and heat embossed the image with White Embossing Powder on Basic Black cardstock and then cut it into squares.  I played with the pieces until I found an arrangement I liked and then mounted each on Daffodil Delight.
My last daisy inspired project is a refreshing summer drink card.  You will never guess how I made the glass.... it is made with the new Petite Pocket Big Shot die!!  I will have a complete tutorial for how to make it as well as measurements and details for the other projects next week so be sure to stop back.

EDIT:  The tutorial is done and can be found HERE.

Now it is time to hop on to Yapha's blog to see the Occasions Alphabet set.  And a huge THANK YOU to Yapha for organizing this hop. Your the BEST, Yapha!!

  9. No NO NO!! You are NOT supposed to make me want this stamp!! lol Wow, the close up of the first one is awesome. Love it embossed in white then color added.

Great idea.

  10. LOL, I adore your daisies, Betty! Hard to pick a fave, but that deconstructed daisy is fabulous, and the glass card preminds me of a set of tumblers my Kansas grandmother had. . . .
