Daisy Punch Sponging Tip

 

Taking another short break from fall and Halloween... and sharing a fun tip for you when you stamp the Daisy punch!

 I think Cindee taught me this tip...

Stamp the Daisy Delight daisy image first, then sponge ink in a circular motion onto the stamped image with a sponge dauber, then punch.  It's such an easy way to add color to the daisy!!

Then, for added dimension, it's fun to curl the petals with a bone folder, add Wink of Stella, and layer 2 or 3 punched images together, then add the Faceted Gem to the center!!

Voila!

 

Tips for how to stamp the Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch from Stampin' UP!

 

I added 2 of those punched daisies to my Whisper White note card and also added a strip of Daisy Delight paper to the left edge, then trimmed it with some Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched ribbon.  Each daisy center featured a gorgeous gold Faceted Gem center!

I stamped thanks a bunch from the Wood Words stamp set (pg 159) onto Wood Textures woodgrain paper and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch and I also stamped the outline image from the Label me Pretty set (pg 27) before punching with the Pretty Label punch.   Save 10%!!

Do you send Halloween cards?  Just curious how many of my readers send or hand out Halloween cards.  I think most people probably create fun treats for Halloween, but I couldn't resist making these cute cards with Stampin' Up! Spooky Night paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

You could also use this design idea for the top of the cute Mini Pizza Box, or a tag on a treat bag.

 

Spooky Night cat punch Halloween card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! cat punch, Hearth & Home window framelit, and Spooky night paper by Patty Bennett

 

I wanted to create the effect of the cat sitting inside the house with the owl looking in from the tree branch.  I used the Hearth & Home window die cut (#139666) in Very Vanilla cardstock, and  cut the square of "tree and moon" paper from the Spooky Night designer paper pack to fit behind the window.  I stamped the owl from the Spooky Cat set in the branch. 

I also used a piece of Spooky Night paper to kind of look like wallpaper.

The cat is so easy to punch out using the Cat Punch! Save 10% when you buy the Spooky Cat bundle HERE.

Detailed Dragonfly faux stained glass card

 

Taking a little break from fall and holiday card ideas today... and I am excited to share this beautiful Detailed Dragonfly card with you!!  I received a similar card from Dyantha, one of the demonstrators in my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and I changed it up a bit and created this card!  I am calling it "faux stained glass" because it kind of looks like stained glass behind the dragonfly die cut!!

Fb live with patty bennettDid you happen to watch my Facebook Live video where I was sharing this card?  (SEE IT HERE).  I was asking if I should sponge the dragonfly or not.. and several viewers suggested sponging the dragonfly with Wink of Stella instead of an ink color.. so even though it's hard to see in these photos, that's what I did and they are lovely in person!!

 

Sponge Wink of Stella onto Detailed Dragonfly die cuts.  Squeeze Wink of Stella onto silicone mat, pick up glimmer with Stampin' Sponge and sponge onto dragonfly.

 

TIP!  Sponge Wink of Stella onto the dragonfly for some glimmer!!

TIP!  Put 3 mini Stampin' Dimesionals behind the dragonfly body.. perfect size!!

As you can see, they all come out differently depending on the piece of Naturally Eclectic paper you add behind the opening!
