Daisy cards

May 14, 2019

I was happy to see that the Daisy Delight stamp set will be in the next Annual Catalogue and that there will be a co-ordinating stamp set and another, slightly smaller, daisy punch.  Woohoo!  Anyway I am combining my determination to use up my Designer Series Paper with my passion to use stamp sets that have been a little neglected.  This set of cards is one of my first results.  I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder.  I punched a narrow strip of Balmy Blue card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I wrapped the top of the Designer Series paper with a piece of the Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon (free during Sale-a-Bration) and attached the panel to the bottom of the embossed Very Vanilla card.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Balmy Blue card.  I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Delight stamp set using Call Me Clover ink.  I stamped the solid image for the flower using Balmy Blue ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first. I stamped the detailed flower image over the top of the solid image using full strength Balmy Blue ink.  I cut out the image using an oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached it to a Balmy Blue scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Dies.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I tied a bow in the Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon and attached it over the flower stems.  To decorate the inside of the card, I punched a narrow strip of Balmy Blue card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind Very Vanilla card which I embossed using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.  The panel is attached to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.

I liked this card very much and decided to make additional cards using all the colours of the Organdy Ribbon.  So I created four more cards in exactly the same way but using Lemon Lime Twist, Highland Heather, Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove.

I love the way these cards turned.   I think that the bright colours work perfectly with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

As I said I am on a mission to use up my retiring Designer Series Paper, so you will see it featuring in lots of cards over the coming weeks.

I’d love to hear what you think?  Bye for now,

Kris
