Ahoy friends and welcome aboard the July Paper Crew Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who have come together online to create cards, scrapbook pages and other paper craft projects. We hope these samples will inspire you to also create fun projects using amazing Stampin’ Up! products.
This month we are sharing projects using “anything floral” from the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. My choice is Daisy Lane.
Daisies, in the floral world, are said to symbolise ‘beauty and innocence’. They do, for most of us, symbolise ‘freshness’ as in the phrase, ’as fresh as a daisy’. Daisies are so versatile so its no wonder Stampin’ Up! gave us another Daisy stamp set. The new Daisy Lane stamp set coordinates beautifully with our existing Daisy Delight stamp set, and the new Medium Daisy Punch works so well with the existing Daisy punch making stamped daisies even more 3D.
For those of us in NZ, it is so exciting that the Daisy Lane set includes a fern that just like our NZ native fern, so that is another reason to love this set!
I designed my card using the stamps and punch from the Daisy Lane bundle featured on page 23 of the New Zealand 2019-2020 Stamping’ Up! catalogue.
My card base is Purple Posy (new In-Color). The DSP (Designer Series Paper) I used was from the Come Sail Away pack. I thought it gave a bit of a vintage feel to the card.
I die cut the lower edge of the DSP using the edge die from the Magnolia Memory dies and layered that on top of a piece of Whisper White cardstock which I also die cut in the same way. I wrapped a strip of the gorgeous new Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon around this and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimentionals.
I stamped the large and smaller daisies using Pretty Peacock ink onto Purple Posy cardstock (both of these colours are from the new 2019-2020 In-color range.) Then I punched out the larger daisy using the Daisy punch (that also coordinates with the Daisy Delight stamp set) and the smaller daisy using the new Medium Daisy punch. (You need two stamped daisies offset on top of one another to make the full daisy. I used a Mini Glue Dot to attach the daisies to one another and attached the full daisy to the front of my card using a Stampin’ Dimentional. The daisy was completed by adding a clear, self adhesive Faceted Gem to the centre.
I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card front using Pretty Peacock ink.
