The Soft Sayings Card Kit is the new kit in the catalog and it’s wonderful! I’ve already made all TWENTY of my cards and I had a lot of fun doing it. It’s an all inclusive kit providing all the pieces that you need plus ink plus stamp set – all you need to provide is glue and scissors to cut the twine. A kit is great when you just want to create but don’t want to think! And for $35 for the kit which makes 20 cards and then leaves you with a stamp set, it’s tremendous value.

Here’s the official Stampin’ Up! video with Holly showing off the kit:

In a piece of brilliance, Stampin’ Up! have also put together a refill kit – everything you need to put together another 20 cards with envelopes. Everything, in fact, in the original kit bar the box, clear block, ink and stamp set. And it’s only $21.

I’m planning an evening with friends putting together more of the kits – so much fun. If you want to do the same and you order a kit from me, I’ll throw in a little surprise gift with your thank you card.

Here’s a card that’s unusual in that it showcases many products; and it’s not unusual in my inability to move away from the new incolors! The card base of this is fresh fig which I ran through the big shot in the Layering Leaves Dynamic TIEF (Textured Impressions Embossing Folder) after lightly spritzing the card with water to get a deeper impression and to help the card fibers to emboss cleanly.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Layering Leaves Dynamic TIEF - Delightful Daisy DSP - Lovely Words thinlit dies - Lovely Inside and Out

I love green and purple together and here we have old olive with the fresh fig. The DSP is another piece from my one sheet wonder challenge using a sheet of Delightful Daisy DSP and I matted it with a piece of old olive. The sentiments are from a bundle – Lovely Inside & Out bundle which consists of some great words and images plus the ability to cut out three great words. The cutouts are actually designed to create negative space behind them and to be enclosed in a shape (heart, circle, oval) but here I snipped out the word to use on its own. I actually have the word friend twice – under the fresh fig there’s a slightly offset gold foil friend just peeking out to add sparkle. And for a finishing touch, the beautiful fresh fig 1/8 inch sheer ribbon. I love this ribbon – I thought it was probably a little too thin to be used much but it seems to be on a lot of my cards and I’ve ordered another color of it!

Don’t forget that we have bonus days running this month – you get a coupon for every $50 you spend. Don’t give up a 10% discount!

I’ve had the High Tide set for a while now and it just hasn’t made it to the top of the stack. I can’t explain that – it’s a great set and has some awesome sayings. I decided to use the same layout again and this saying was just the right shape for the card! Do you do that? Sometimes select a sentiment because it fits in the space correctly? It always makes me laugh when I do that.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - High Tide - Delightful Daisy DSP

This uses a large piece of paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP – 5 /14 by 4 inches on a night of navy base. I then made the top pieces – a piece of whisper white which “looked right” – 1 3/4 inches to be precise and stamped the awesome sentiment in more night of navy on one side so that the beautiful crushed curry mini chevron ribbon bow would fit. I also used crushed curry as the matting for the piece of whisper white; despite the yellow in the DSP actually being daffodil delight, it’s been watered down to get the watercolor effect and the actual card stock is just a touch too much in my opinion. Crushed curry works nicely – and of course goes well with the lovely ribbon.

I just used a teeny piece of the Delightful Daisy DSP for this card and it’s a piece that looks like leaves. I really think that this paper pack is one of my most favourites ever.

Liz Bailey Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Delightful Daisy DSP - Daisy Delight - Soft Sayings Card Kit

I added the stamping from the Daisy Delight stamping in old olive on both very vanilla and old olive and punched them out with the Daisy Punch (back in stock currently!). I glued the two together for a two tone flower and finished it with a gold faceted gem. Love these! I added a mat of very vanilla around my piece of Delightful Daisy DSP to match the flower. And then I tried to make the gold embossing really sparkle in the photo.

The sentiment. Do you recognise it? It’s from the Soft Sayings Card kit which is a great kit – I’ve made all 20 of my cards already. I’ll share them soon. I embossed it with gold embossing powder to match the gem. A simple card but fun. And if you wanted to make a load, you could since it uses very little DSP.

Good news!! I think I mentioned that the Daisy Punch was incredibly popular and on backorder and then not orderable after more than 10,000 punches were ordered. Normally Stampin’ Up! sells about 7000 of a punch in a year and just demonstrators in their pre-order period in April bought that in just over 2 weeks so more were ordered right away. Of course it takes time to get more made and shipped so they had to turn them off. BUT the daisy punch is back in stock today. If you’ve been waiting to buy the bundle of the stamp set with the punch, I’d grab it quickly before this small order is depleted. The bundle is $31.50 and the code is 145361.

Here are some little 3 by 3 inch cards that I made using the punch and some of the Fresh Florals DSP stack. The clear faceted gems are also available again so throw those into your order along with the gold ones. At only $5 each colour, it’s a no brainer!

These are of course three of the new in colors – berry burst, tranquil tide and fresh fig. I love that I can’t decide on my favourite color!
