Delightfully Detailed Birthday Card

15th August 2018

Hi everyone,

Karen here again with another card. Today it's a birthday card using the delightfully detailed lace paper, which is beautiful and doesn't need much else to make a card look pretty. It's really simple to make and it looks great.

This is a great card for a beginner, it's a very simple technique but looks really effective.

Here's what you need to make it:


Whisper white card to make a card blank measuring 6" x 4" (I have used a ready made card base in the example)
A piece of  coloured cardstock or designer series paper, 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" (this is from the Tranquil Textures Suite)
A panel of the delightfully detailed lace paper to fit the dsp/cardstock
A piece of scrap card for the sentiment in a colour to match (I've used Balmy Blue)
Stampin Up Ink Pad (Blueberry Bushel)
Detailed With Love Stamp Set (mine are wood mounted so no clear block required)
Stampin Dimensionals
Pretty Label Punch
Sponge (to apply the glue)


1. Make a card base using a piece of Whisper White cardstock (I have used a ready made card base in this example).

2. Cut a piece of either cardstock or DSP to mat on top of the card base (5 1/2" x 3 7/8"), I have used a piece of the Tranquil Textures Suite in a lovely shade of blue.

3. Carefully trim a panel from a sheet of the delightfully detailed lace paper to fit, this paper is whisper white on one side and very vanilla on the other, so will match any colour.

4. The simplest way to adhere this lace paper to your card is to put a blob of glue on a piece of scrap card, or a silicone mat if you have one, then carefully apply the glue, using a sponge to the back of the lace panel, taking care not to tear it.

5. Adhere the panel to the cardstock or DSP and then mount that on to the card base.

6. Stamp your sentiment on a piece of scrap cardstock and punch out with the pretty label punch, add dimensionals to the back and position on your card.

The finished result is a very simple but pretty card that I am sure anyone would appreciate. 

Hope you like my card, happy crafting

Daisy Thank You Card

3rd August 2018

Hi, my name is Karen and I am an Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator and I wanted to share this pretty little card with you. I love the colour and the pretty designer series paper which comes in over 50 colours so you can mix and match this design with any colour ink, cardstock and dsp because they all co-ordinate together. You could make a whole series in different colours. It's really easy and here is how you do it:


  • 1 sheet thick A4 whisper white
  • 1 piece in colour DSP in melon mambo (2" x 5")
  • 1 piece melon mambo card stock (5 1/2" x 3 7/8")
  • Melon mambo ink pad
  • Daisy delight stamp set
  • Daisy Punch
  • Adhesive
  • Bone Folder
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Trimmer
  • Pierce mat
  • Faceted gem
  • Glue dots
  • Scraps whisper white, melon mambo and DSP for the sentiments


1. Cut A4 whisper white at 4 1/8" x 11 3/4" and score at 5 7/8", fold and burnish to make           fcard base.
2. Adhere melon mambo card stock to card base leaving a small increment around                     the edge.
3. Adhere DSP to left hand side of melon mambo card leaving small increment.
4. Stamp 2 daisies with melon mambo ink on a piece of scrap whisper white and punch out.
5. Glue the two daisies together as shown below.

6. Using a bone folder, curl the petals from underneath to give the flower depth. Place the flower on a piercing mat and using the end on a pencil or stylus, push down in the centre of the flower.

7. Using glue dots, adhere the daisy to the centre of the card.
8. Stamp your sentiments on a scrap of whisper white and mount the Thank You on your melon mambo scrap and for your kindness on the DSP as shown below

9. Add dimensionals to the back of both of the sentiments and arrange on the card.
10. Add a faceted gem to the centre of the daisy.

I hope you like my little card and will give it a try. 

Happy Stamping

Karen xx
