My turn to host the StampaMemory Creative Challenges this month ....
Guest Stamper Elaine Hannam ....

Upsy Daisy, Dazzling Diamonds and the winner of the punch ....

It's been a while since I have played with one of my favourite sets from Stampin' Up!, Upsy Daisy. Last night my husband went to help a friend who's car had broken down and needed a tow, so I took the time to have a little stamp (in the breaks of Grey's Anatomy of course!). Here's what I came up with.

Upsy daisy sparkle

Upsy Daisy sparkle 2

I really like the greetings that say Hello, Hi There, For You etc, as I find those cards can be used for so many different purposes. This greeting is from Basic Phrases, and has been embossed in white. I've added some sparkle to the flowers by using my Two Way Glue Pen where I wanted the sparkle to be, and then adding the Dazzling Diamonds. This is super quick. Here's a summary of what I used on the card:

  • Stampin' Up! stamps: Upsy Daisy, Friendly Words Jumbo Wheel & Basic Phrases
  • Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White
  • Paper: Urban Garden Designer Series Paper
  • Stampin' Up! Punches: Eyelet Border, Large Oval and Scalloped Oval
  • Accessories: Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Button Latte Designer Button, Linen Thread, White Embossing Powder & Embossing Buddy

Now for the Winner of The Punch

You might remember my challenge for Januarywas for you to have a play with a half sheet wonder. I was so impressed with all the beautiful cards you came up with. Thanks for playing along on my first challenge. I received 10 entries (including one emailed to me from Monica). I used random.org to choose a winner and ..... drumroll please .......... the winner of a Stampin' Up! punch of their choice worth $30.95 is

Hi Claire! I love this one sheet wonder idea - I have had a go with the new Butterfly prints set and posted it on my blog http://coffee-at-claires.blogspot.com/2010/01/posted-by-picasa.html
Thank you for the inspiration :)
