Follow Your Art!

Stamping and crafting is something I have enjoyed for as long as I can remember. It is my creative outlet and it is my way to show I care by brightening someone’s day.  As a demonstrator, it is a way to share encourage others and to help them find their creative side.  I love inviting friends over, sitting around my dinning room table, laughing and crafting together.  That’s why the Follow Your Art Product Suite is fabulous for the avid crafter for a ton of fun playing with designer series paper, embellishment kit, washi tape, mini shipping (gift) boxesembossing folder, stamp set and dies.

Beautiful Days with You

Homemade cards are hugs folded and mailed.  They bring instant joy and happiness to the recepient.  For this card featuring Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set, I combined the softness of Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaroon with Rococo Rose.

While the Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set coordinates perfectly with both the Perennial Flower Punch and the Leaf Punch, I choose to use the delicate leaves from Wild Rose die set for soft color.

Happy and Adorable with Daisy Lane

daisy lane catalog sample

Everyone loves picking a handful of daisies!  Daisies are cheerful and grow all year round – making them perfect for any occasion.   Daisies have special abilities of telling you if he/she “loves you or not”!  The answer is always yes – you are loved!  Here are some other meanings of daisies:

  • Innocence and purity – as represented by bright white daisies.
  • Cheerfulness and togetherness – live in clusters throughout the sunny country side as reminders that we are never alone.
  • New beginnings – in bouquets for new mothers or as gifts for children.
  • True love and commitment – because each daisy flower is really two flowers blended together in harmony.  A flower center is one flower which is surrounded by the “rays” of another flower.

Fun facts:  Daisies are found everywhere on Earth except Antarctica.  They thrive in generally inhospitable conditions and are resistant to most bugs and pesticides.  They have medicinal purposes; and their leaves make a tasty addition to salads and are high in Vitamin C.

Conclusion:  Daisies are good for you!  And, daisies also have great powers in the craft room, inspiring creativity and sharing.  

And, these are just a few of the reasons why the Daisy Lane Bundle is one of my favorites from the new annual catalog.  It includes the Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set and the Medium Daisy Punch with a 10% savings! 

Did you notice that this bundle coordinates perfectly with the (Large) Daisy Punch that you may already own?  Thus, providing you more creative options?

The (Large) Daisy Punch was introduced last year with the Delightful Daisy stamp set.  Stampin’ Up understands our need for coordinating products, as well as, our need to  enjoy using new purchases with old purchases for more creative fun!

Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes to surround yourself with lots and lots of daisies!
