Why I Love Making Cards (and a few daisies)!

I love making cards. I love the pretty colors and papers and ribbons. When I sit down to create a card I forget about everything else and get lost in making something pretty. For me it’s a way to relax and forget about other things for awhile, and just play with paper and stamps 🙂

Another reason I like making cards is that it’s a way to bless other people, to spread a smile to my friends and family. I think that could be why I really like this new Delightful Daisy Suite…daisies always bring a smile! And this suite has a great Daisy Punch – you can pop out a daisy in a flash! I know we are all going to find lots of things to do with these punched daisies. For today, I put mine on a thank you card! Here are the details:

I’ve used some other items from the suite, like the designer series paper and the stamp set. This paper coordinates beautifully with Tranquil Tide, one of the new 2017-2019 In Colors!

Pretty Pointer:  The 1/2″ Circle Punch punches a perfectly-sized circle for the center of the daisy! I took a picture to show you. Look how it fits in there so well!

Another thing I really enjoy is having card classes where I teach people how to make pretty cards! I usually have 2 or 3 classes each month in my home, and we have a great time, I have to say 🙂 This past weekend I had some classes and I took a picture of the table all prepared for the stampers before they arrived. We had so much fun I didn’t even take any pictures when they were here!!

Please leave me a comment and tell me what YOU love about stamping and making cards and why YOU stamp ~ I’d really like to know! That’s what we have in common, we LOVE STAMPING!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I’m so glad to share all this with you!
