Daisy Lane – part 2

Last week, in the first part of my Daisy Lane stamp set showcase, I gave you some inspiration for creating projects teamed with the Daisy punch. If you haven’t read it, you can find it here. Today we are going to look at projects which don’t need the punch but use some fussy-cutting and pair up stamped images with DSP.

Again, we will look at a matching set of three items – gift tag, card and pillow gift box.

Let’s start with the gift tag…

The tag base is created from Whisper White thick cardstock and uses the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and the corner-rounder (Detailed Trio punch) to produce the basic tag shape. I have added detail and texture using the stitched edge die from the Stitched Nested Label die set.

I have also cut a piece of DSP (from the Garden Lane Suite) to the same shape and cropped slightly to reveal some of the Whisper White. The sentiment is stamped in Garden Green ink onto Mint Macaron cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Nested Label die. This is then layered onto a slightly larger die cut in So Saffron cardstock. I have then adhered the sentiment piece to the main tag.

One of the Daisy images has been stamped in Smoky Slate ink and coloured using the So Saffron Stampin’ Write marker. This has been fussy cut and adhered using dimensionals. Final touches are added with Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with So Saffron Blends and a length of Mint Macaron twine.

Next, the card…

The card base is created from Whisper White thick cardstock. I have then adhered a layer of DSP from the Garden Lane Suite. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been stamped with one of the foliage stamps in Garden Green ink in the bottom right hand corner. I have added detail and texture using the stitched edge die again which helps to tie the projects together. The sentiment piece is created in the same way as for the tag and adhered over the foliage.

Three of the daisies have been stamped in Smoky Slate ink, coloured with a So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker and fussy cut. These are adhered using dimensionals and a length of Mint Macaron twine has been curled and tucked under one of the daisies. Again, final touches are added with Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with So Saffron Blends.

Finally, the gift box…

The basic gift box is one of the Kraft Pillow Boxes (available in packs of 10). To decorate the Pillow Box, I have cut a strip of Garden Lane DSP and added detail and texture with the stitched edge die. This is wrapped around the box and the two ends adhered to hold in place. The sentiment piece and Daisy are created in the same way as in the other projects. This time, the curled twine has been tucked on the sentiment piece. Final touches are added with the Pearl Basic Jewels coloured with So Saffron Blends.

I really enjoy making sets of matching projects and think they look most effective when there are elements running through all the projects but also little twists so that each item is individual. I hope you have enjoyed exploring these creations and inspired you to create something similar.
