DAISY TIPS: 1. Hold each Daisy Petal about 1/4″ from the flower center. Curl with your Bone Folder to the tip of the Petal. Do this for all Petals. If you do it right, the flower will stand up like a spider. (Luckily this isn’t creepy or crawly!) 2. The easiest way to put the flowers together is to put Glue Dots behind the center of the top flower. Light lay each of the Petals in the top flower so they are between the Petals on the bottom flower. Whe they are positioned how you like them, press the flower centers together to attach them with the Glue Dots.

Have fun playing with colors when making this card!

Cut your Whisper White card front at 3-3/4” x 5”. Stamp Happy Birthday in Island Indigo ink. Choose one of the small stamps and stamp with Pool Party ink. Attach to card base. 3.

Have you ever wished the Classic Label Punch came in a variety of lengths? Well, your problem is solved-without spending any more money or using up more space for all the punches this would involve! Follow the quick tips on this video to punch both Shorter AND Longer sentiments with your Standard size Classic Label Punch. Enjoy using this Punch Technique on your cards.
TIPS: 1. Cut your cardstock 3/8″ wide. This is between the 1/4″ and the 1/2″ mark on your ruler or Paper Trimmer. Leave it longer than you need it to be. This extra length gives you something to hold on to. If the length is too short, attach your 3/8″ cardstock to a Post-It Note so you have something to hole onto. 2. You can put the strip in several ways:
~Stick it in through the top between the metal layers where the punching occurs. Make sure the strip is lined up in the hole which will form the punched shape.
~Stick the strip in through the side. Pull up the end that went in first. Line up the other end with the pointed Punch hole. Line up the strip so it is straight in the punch hole ditch. Punch.
~Stick the Punched end in first, then line up the other end so it is where you want to punch. Again, make sure the strip is lined up with the sides of the punch hole. Punch 3. The Classic Label is the perfect size for Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
This is the prototype for my Mother’s Day Cards. This one will be for my Mom because she likes pastels. I will change the colors for each of my daughters and daughters-in-laws because they like totally different colors. Hopefully I will remember to take a picture before I mail them out.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Powder Pink card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Powder Pink card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Use one of the Petal Pair embossing folders on one side of your card front and run it through the Big Shot. Repeat with the other side. Glue to your card base. 3. Die cut your flower pieces and leaves.
~Wild Wasabi Leaves: Cut three leaves with the May Flowers Framelits.
~Berry Burst top flower layer: Use both the flower petal die AND the framelit that fits around it to cut out this flower. You can put 1-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the cardstock BEFORE cutting. This will turn it into a sticker. Otherwise just glue it onto the bottom flower layer.
~Fresh Fig bottom flower layer: Use the same Framelit that went around the flower petal die to cut this layer.
~Attach top flower layer to bottom flower layer.
~Attach leaves to the back of the flower. I used Tombow Glue. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the flower.
~Now cut the desired Stitched Shapes Circle in Powder Pink. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
~Stamp your Happy Mother’s Day on Whisper White cardstock in Berry Burst ink. Punch out with the Classic Label Punch. Put Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back. 4.Put it all together:
~Lay all the pieces on your embossed card front where you want them.
~Put Tombow Glue on the back of the Doily in the center circle. Attach to card front.
~Attach the Stitched Shapes Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals centering over the Doily.
~Attach the Flower and Leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the flower and put on the Stitched Shapes Circle.
~Attach your sentiment with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals towards the bottom of the card.
