Hello friends and welcome to my little corner of the Internet!
I’ve been gone but I’m back! Yikes…owning a home can be such pain at times. I am painting and fixing several rooms and it seem to be taking forever. So I thought I take a break and make some cards using the Daisy Delight Stampinup© bundle. It’s such a bright and happy stamp, perfect for a sunny day!
I used this same layout a while back for a card swap and using some of the materials still left made these three cuties. I have listed all the materials and links at the end of the blog if you wish to purchase any of the products I used. You can also browse Stampin’up© online store for some more products and inspiration, click here it will take you to my online store. I truly thank you for your support!
Supplies and Measurements:
1. I cut a 8 1/2″ by 11″ white Neenah card stock in half (vertically), then folded in half (horizontally) in order to create a 4.25″ by 5.5″ inches card base.
2. Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of coordinating color card stock. For the blue I used soft sky and for the green I used old olive. I created a background on this card stock to add texture and a subtle pattern (see the next section).
3. Cut a 2″ x 6″ strip of the designer series paper “Daisy Delight”. This a good chance to use some of your scraps! If you are not using this bundle you can use any coordinating pattern paper you may have.
4. From my white card stock scraps I cut a 3″ circle. You can use a punch or a die that is slightly bigger than the flower.
5. I stamped the daisy image on “daffodil delight” card stock then used the daisy cut the flower. I did this twice in order to have a fuller flower. I glued both by off setting them so that the flower looks fuller.
6. For the center of the flower I cut a small circle out of white card stock and then covered with sparkle using a Spectrum Noir™ clear sparkle brush.
This background was created using Versamark™ Watermark/Resist Ink stamp pad, clear embossing powder, and static embossing powder tool.
1. Using the static embossing tool I rubbed it all over the 4″ x 5.25″ piece of color card stock. This will help the embossing powder to settle on the stamped image instead of all over.
2. Using the leaf stamp on the set, I stamped the image randomly around the card stock using Versamark™ Watermark/Resist Ink Stamp Pad. This ink is non-pigmented meaning it has no color , but it’s sticky so the embossing powder will stick to it.
3. Sprinkle the embossing powder generously over the stamp images, tap the excess off and then heat with a heating tool. If you want to see a video of this process I recommend Jennifer McGuire and her playlist for heat embossing. This technique can bring some fantastic results.

Assembling this card as you can see on the above picture was quite easy. First I centered and glued the 4 x 5.25 inches card stock to the card base; then glued the piece of designer paper horizontally and slightly off-center; glued the die cut circle in the center of the designer paper; finally glued the daisy.
I hope you like this card as I had a lot of fun making it. I have listed the materials I used below if you are interested in purchasing any of them. I thank you for your support.
Have a great day and always take time to be creative even when everything around you is chaos!
