Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge, Happy 4th of July

This weeks challenge is: Summer Fun – Ocean, Beach, Sun- whatever makes you think of summer”.

Sunglasses and Daisies make me think about summer, how about you? This was a fun card to make. The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper works perfect for my “pocket” I stamped the pocket from thevPocketful of Sunshine stamp set, and die cut it with the matching Pocket Framelits. Next I sponged on the edges of the pocket with Night Of Navy Ink. I added the same paper to the front of a Night of Navy card base., and then the pocket. Trying to make sure that the lines all line up.


When I stamped the sunglasses, the black in the lenses didn’t stamp very well. So, instead of re-stamping, I used my Clear Wink of Stella. Kind of clever, don’t you think? I guess you might call me a lazy stamper……..So the side of the glasses that are in the pocket have Dimensionals and the other side is just Snail for the adhesive.

Next, I stamped the Daisy, twice with Crushed Curry onto Whisper White cardstock and sponged with the same color. You could just stamp onto Crushed Curry Cardstock. Then I “winked” the petals with Wink of Stella, added the Gold Faceted Gem to the center and placed it on the pocket with Glue Dots. Now the only thing left is the sentiment. I love this sentiment, You Dazzle Me. I sponged and stamped with Night of Navy Ink. Used my Banner Triple Punch to punch the ends, and added a couple more of the Faceted Gems. I probably wouldn’t of put them where I did if I had to do it all over again. But the paper was coming off with the gems, so I had to leave them where they were.

I hope you play along too. Go to:
