Welcome back to the Monday Montage blog hop! Every other Monday, my friends and I share inspiring paper craft projects. Be sure to visit all the stops….you don’t want to miss anything!
Today I’m sharing one of the Daisy Delight cards that we made in Card Club this month. This one is super easy! It features unusual angles and a trendy color scheme. I used the sketch below from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.
For my Card Club, I design 5 projects and try to focus on one stamp set, coordinating designer series paper, and a limited number of ink colors. I want my customers to see all the variation they can create with just a few supplies. This month, we used the Daisy Delight stamp set, Daisy Punch, and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.
The Daisy image was stamped twice with Tranquil Tide ink onto Whisper White card stock, then punched out. To create the angled edge, I simply placed a ruler and drew the lines before cutting. The “Thank You” sentiment was stamped along the angled edge in Tranquil Tide ink. A few of my club members chose to leave the sentiment off so that they could use it for a different occasion.
As a finishing touch, I scattered a few Clear Faceted Gems onto the front of the card.
The Card Club tutorial will be available in the blog sidebar tomorrow. It includes all the measurements, so you don’t have to figure it out for yourself. My customers really enjoyed this class and the simple beauty of these cards. I hope you do, too!
If you haven’t fallen in love with the Birthday Memories Suite yet, I think that today’s card may push you over the edge. How cute are these poodles? There are two 12″ x 12″ sheets of the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper covered in poodles, plus one of the die cuts will cut out the main poodle image perfectly.
The greeting is from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and it was stamped in Real Red ink onto Whisper White card stock. I used the Big Shot and the Layering Circles Dies to cut out the Whisper White circle and the Real Red Scallop Circle. To accessorize the card, I tied on some Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and added a few Real Red Enamel shapes.

If you are looking for some bright, colorful images to adorn your handmade birthday cards, look no further than the Birthday Memories Suite of products. There is an amazing bundle that features the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer stamp set, Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, and Birthday Friends Framelits. What I love most about this bundle is the coordination of the Framelits with the Designer Series Paper. For today’s card, I was able to die cut the fox image and banner from the paper…..very little stamping required!
There are a couple of stamps that will fit inside the banner. I chose to stamp the sentiment in the coordinating Pacific Point ink. The background was embossed with the Big Shot and the new Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder. I also added a few Brights Enamel Shapes to make this card even more festive.
For cards that feature a darker card stock base, I always place a piece of Whisper White card stock on the inside for stamping and/or writing a personalized greeting. On this card, I also added a strip of the Designer Series Paper to match it to the front.
I’m trying very hard not to hoard my Designer Series Paper this year. I was able to die cut quite a few of the fox images from my paper and create these cards for my most recent downline meeting. My group of demonstrators meets every other month to share ideas and talk shop. We also have a group Facebook page where we can share our card creations.
I’d be happy to share the details of an upcoming promotion with you and extend the invitation to join my team. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.

My first real order from the Annual Catalog arrived this week and I could not wait to use the This Little Piggy stamp set. These pigs are just so darn cute! I also had to use the new Embossing Paste with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. You’re going to love the effects you can create with these fun tools!
It’s Sketch Challenge week at TGIF Challenges. We’ve got a great sketch and we’d love for you to play along with us. You can link up your creations with this sketch over the next week.
I stamped the pig image onto Powder Pink card stock and Whisper White card stock. The wings were cut from the Whisper White card stock, then adhered to the Powder Pink pig. Using a blender pen and the Basic Gray Watercolor Pencil, I added a bit of shading to the white wings and the pig’s hooves. I used the Blender Pen with ink from the Powder Pink stamp pad to add highlights to the body of the pig. A tiny bit of Clear Wink of Stella was added to the wings.
The greeting was stamped in Versamark ink, then sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heated with the heat tool. To create the “fluffy” clouds, I used the Embossing Paste along with the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and a Palette Knife. I’ll try to shoot a video next week to demonstrate this interesting technique. I think you are going to love it!
The final touch is a Powder Pink Bitty Bow. These bows are perfectly tied and so soft…..a perfect accent for this card.
