Daisy Thanks

Well, it's been a hectic week here in Ohio. We had our version of Hurricane Ike on Sunday leaving thousands without power and many (myself included) with damage to their homes. We lost siding, roofing, and gutters and right now it's just a waiting game with insurance. Luckily there's no rain in the forecast for the next week, so let's hope we can get this taken care of before it does rain.

Anyway, on to stamping. That's why were here, right? Here's another card we made at Jan's card class last Saturday. This one uses the stamp set Upsy Daisy. We started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and using a Post-It Note and my 1 1/4" Circle punch we created a mask and sponged the sun using So Saffron. We then stamped the silhouette image from Upsy Daisy in Chocolate Chip. We had to stamp it twice to make it fit across the whole piece of WW. We then layered it on a piece of Chocolate Chip and added it to our So Saffron card base. Now, in this example I stamped "thank you" from Enjoy Every Moment in So Saffron and punched it out with my Large Oval punch. For the class we used "you're on my mind" from Upsy Daisy in Chocolate Chip and punched it with the Large Oval punch and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. The ladies really liked making this card as they loved the sponging.

Well, kids, I'm on vacation for the next 12 days. I'm actually only going out of town for 4 of those days, so I'll try to do some posting when I'm here.
