Hello again stamping friend! I’m so excited about today’s post; I’m using a new bundle called Daisy Delight for Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCC244!
You are going to love our new sketch challenge, and the new bundle I’m sharing with you.
PCC244 – Sketch Challenge
Ok, so it’s probably pretty obvious why I decided to use the new Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch, when I saw this sketch! I really did stay true to the sketch on this one 🙂
I used 3 colours for this card; Night of Navy, So Saffron and Whisper White. The large daisy image was stamped in Night of Navy ink 4 times on scrap pieces of Whisper White cardstock, and I punched with the new Daisy Punch. I used a Sponge Dauber to add a bit more shading towards the center of the daisies. Using the multiple layers makes me think of a Gerbera daisy – they’re my favourite!
I layered the flowers together alternating Stampin’ Dimensionals and Multipurpose Glue. After layering, I used my Bone Folder to curl the petals up & downward, just like a real daisy. Using the Daisy Delight stamp set, I stamped additional daisies in Night of Navy ink onto the Whisper White panel, and added the dots in So Saffron ink. The center of the daisy was also stamped in So Saffron ink, then I added one of the new Glitter Enamel Dots.
After stamping, I wrapped some retired Night of Navy Thick Baker’s Twine 3 times around the top 1/3rd of the panel, then attached it to the card base of Night of Navy cardstock. The sentiment is from the retiring Crazy About You stamp set (you can still get it until the end of May!). Using the Sponge Dauber again, I edged the sentiment pieces with some Night of Navy ink. They are attached to the card front with Dimensionals.
The Inside Scoop
I couldn’t resist decorating the inside panel; the lovely little daisies look like they’re falling in a breeze! Since I’m not sure who this card will go to, I haven’t added a sentiment yet. You can see the sheet of gorgeous Glitter Enamel Dots in front – aren’t those colours amazing! And each colour goes from light to dark, in an ombre style. I know I’ll be using these a lot!
