    Mum with Medium Daisy punch for a birthday.

    Mum with Daisy Punch. Here is my version of a fall flower. I have not made a mum with the Daisy punch, have you?? I really got the idea from the Ornate Garden DSP. Right down to the colors, Mint Macaron, Early Espresso and Bumblebee. I created this card for the Culver Library class. The ladies loved it. Always need a birthday card, right?? How about that mum?? I could see adding another punch or two. However, having to have all the supplies cut and ready to go was key. Check out this other card using the Medium Daisy Punch. I will explain that in a minute.

    Tombstones with Wonderfully Wicked

    The poor black kitty is lost in the cemetery. WHAT?? Where did those tombstones come from?? I will be happy to tell you! Everyday Label punch (144668), do you own it?? I know you do! After that, you will need a 1 3/4 inch piece of Smoky Slate cardstock. This is one of those exceptions to the rules. Punch first, then Stamp. However, you will want to “drag” your edges over your Crafty Whisper White Ink (147277) prior to adding to your card. Also “dragging” the Basic Black layer across the Crafty Whisper White. NOTE: you may also want to use a sponge to get in the exact places you…

This is a must have… In the Occasions catalog pg 36, it is one of the new cling stamp sets and has matching die cuts too bundled together for $42.25. This card is on a the whisper white note card and envelope (145583). Adding a few sweeps of the grapefruit grove ink, let it dry (really dry!) and then stamp in Rich Razzleberry.
