Upsy Daisy

upsydaisy I’m having a senior moment as to whether I have posted this sample already. So, forgive me if this is a duplicate.

I have some wonderful new samples coming that I am working on for my May Stamp-A-Stack of stuff tomorrow.  It will feature some terrific masculine cards for that special guy in your life–or even your husband!


The Upsy Daisy stamp was inked in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The color combination was from the  Urban Garden Designer Series paper… Kiwi Kiss & Night of Navy– not one I would have come up with myself.  To make the flower ‘pop’, I sponged some Kiwi Kiss ink around the daisy heads.

On June 1st the discontinuing stamp sets from this year’s catalog will be published, be sure to check back at that time.  It is pretty much a given that 90% of the designer series papers will also discontinue, so if you like the Urban Garden (#112042) designer paper, now might be the time to order it!
