Daisy Lane – part 4

In the 4th instalment of my Daisy Lane Stamp Set Showcase I wanted to create three different cards using the same colour scheme. I have chosen the combination of Very Vanilla and Blackberry Bliss which I think works really well and produces a lovely, sophisticated look.

Many delightful daisies…

The first card is a Very Vanilla A6 tent fold card with a 14.3x10cm Blackberry Bliss layer followed by a 13.8×9.5cm Very Vanilla layer. The Very Vanilla layer is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink using one of the stamps from the Gallery Grunge stamp sets. Stamp sets which contain background and texture stamps are a great addition to your craft stash as they can be used to add interest and texture on any type of card and are particularly useful if you have a fear of ‘white space’ on projects.

The smaller of the two daisies has been stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock four times and cut out using the Medium Daisy punch. This is part of the Daisy Lane bundle and you’ll save 10% if you purchase the punch and stamp set together. Punching the Daisy out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock twice and adhering them together creates a ‘fuller’ flower and a darker background to help the sentiment stand out. I have adhered this flower using a dimensional. ‘You mean the world to me’ is one of many really sweet sentiments from the Well Said stamp set. This is stamped in Blackberry Bliss onto Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out using the Classic Label punch and adhered to the flower.

Fantastic feature foliage…

The second card is a Very Vanilla A6 side fold card, again with a 14.3x10cm Blackberry Bliss layer followed by a 13.8×9.5cm Very Vanilla layer. This time, however, I have wrapped a piece of Blackberry Bliss twine (from the Nature’s Twine pack) around the Very Vanilla layer and adhered it using dimensionals – just make sure to do this after the stamping! Multi generation stamping in Blackberry Bliss has been used for the foliage with two first generation impressions on the outer extremes, followed by two second generation impressions working inwards and finally a third generation impression in the centre. Blackberry Bliss ink has also been used for the ‘Birthday’ stamp from the Well Said stamp set and the ‘happy’ has been die cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the Well Written die set.

Beautiful birthday textures…

The third card is an A6 tent fold card with a single Very Vanilla layer measuring 13.8×9.5cm. I have used a couple of the other stamps from the Gallery Grunge stamp set to add interest to opposite corners of the card. The ‘birthday’ sentiment has been stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the 2” circle punch and the ‘happy’ has been die cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock as in the previous card. Two of the smaller daisies have been stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the punch. These have been adhered together with a rotation to give a ‘fuller’ flower. Four more daisies have been cut from Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the punch and adhered to give two flowers. The finishing touch is provided by using Clear Faceted Gems for the flower centres (don’t forget these can be coloured using Blends if you are using a different colour scheme).
