Coming up Daisies!


I have officially taken a break from sewing face masks and am back creating in my happy place.  Today I would like to share with you a card named  “Coming Up Daisies”.  This was a really fun project in that I used the Fluid 100 watercolor paper from Stampin’Up! along with our beautiful inks and aqua painter to make my colored paper for the flowers.  Then, using some of our dies and punches to form them.  Here is what the finished card looks like.


  • 8.5″ x 5.5″  Whisper White cardbase scored at 4.25″
  • 3.75″x 5.25″ Shimmery White cardstock embossed with Subtles folder and water colored with Balmy Blue ink and aqua painter.
  • Using the aqua painter and the Fluid 100 watercolor paper with the remaining ink colors and let dry before punching and die cutting.
  • Cut a piece of Balmy Clue cardstock to matte the Shimmery White embossed image, then wrap and tie the crinkle ribbon in a bow or knot.
  • Stamp with favorite sentiment and adhere the flowers and leaves using mini glue dots.
  • Pop up using dimensionals onto the cardbase.

The products used to make this card are pictured below and can be purchased from my online store by simply clicking the product.

Music From the Heart

I just love  Million Sales Achevier, Dawn Olchefske’s stamp set called Music From The Heart.  It is so versatile and was my go to when using my Regal Color Family DSP

Here is my interpretation using this beautiful stamp set with the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (149613), Memento Ink  and the perfectly color coordinated cardstock.

I hope you like these samples and give them a try.  Check out my Pinterest boards for lots more ideas.

Paper Pumpkin Alternate November 2019

Let’s make our own DSP!

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share this Paper Pumpkin alternate project using the products from the October 2019 and November 2019 coordinating Paper Pumpkin kits.

I just fell in love with the detailed, petite snowflake stamp.  Mixing the Shaded Spruce holly and ivy, Delicata Copper snowflakes and the Poppy Parade cardinal gave a beautiful background to the beautiful font used for the Seasons Greetings.  I hope you love this project and will give it a try.

Here is the demonstration video I posted on my YouTube channel, Create with Brenda.  Please leave me a comment, a like, share or better yet, SUBSCRIBE.
