Aim for Alaska 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! New Catalog Sneak Peek Blog Hop


     Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far. Today I have a special post for you...an Aim for Alaska new Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog Sneak Peek Blog Hop! That's right. You will get to see a whole bunch of blogs with new product from the new catalog! Now as some of you know I suffer from some pretty severe back issues along with a few other things and so lately while I have been going on a reducing my meds roller coaster I have lost a lot of my crafty mojo. That is why I love new catalog time!! With all the new product we get to play with, and a lot of inspiration out there among the other demonstrators, it has helped so much.



     Speaking of new product...that is exactly what I used to make my mom her Mother's Day card. I used the Delightful Daisy Suite from the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog. I got to work with this product at OnStage in April which was a blast and I ordered it in my Product Premiere Purchase order, a special extra for being a demonstrator that goes to OnStage! I also use a couple retiring stamps because they had the sentiments I needed. But all in all I used all the items from the suite.



     The DSP (Designer Series Paper) is so beautiful. I love all the colors they used in it including one of the new In-Colors...Tranquil Tide. And it is so beautiful against Daffodil Delight. My mom loves the color yellow too so that is where I went with this card.
     I first chose my DSP then put it onto a Daffodil Delight A2 sized card base. I wanted a lot of the DSP to show so I made the next layer a little smaller then I usually do. It is 3"x 4-1/4". I made the flower out of the stamp included in the set and the new Daisy Punch. I stamped the stem onto the layer and positioned the daisy with dimensionables on top. I stamped the other flowers on the bottom and then the sentiment. Pretty quick card. I positioned the doily onto the card base, then used Foam Adhesive Strips to pop up this layer. I added a little bling with the new Faceted Gems and Glitter Enamel Dots.



     On the inside, and I always believe you should decorate the inside, I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped it with my sentiment and some smaller daisies down the side and some leaves in the corner. How do you like it? A very simple yet very beautiful Mother's Day card!
     Here is a list of everyone in this Blog Hop, so if you get lost at anytime just click on anyone's name and continue.



Here are all the supplies I used in this card:
