SU Daisy Lane Card

Hello and welcome! Today I’m going to back an old favourite! It’s easy to forget the Annual Catalogue when the new Seasonal Catalogue is released but I try to make sure it gets plenty of use still. One of my particular favourites from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is Daisy Lane and the coordinating punches.

Today I’d like to share with you a card which is great for using your favourite Designer Series Paper (DSP) because you simply pick the featured colours and create the daisy and foliage to match. I’ve chosen an unusual colour combination to show you that the daisy looks great even in traditionally non-floral colours.

If you would prefer to watch me create the card simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. The main card front is created from a piece of the Woven Threads DSP. I have cut notches in the top and bottom edges of the DSP using the 0.5″ Circle punch. This allows the Linen Thread to sit nicely around the card front, adhered on the back using Tear & Tape. A shorter length of the thread is tied into a bow.

The large daisy is stamped twice in Seaside Spray ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Daisy punch. The daisy is stamped again in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the centre cut out using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. The daisies are offset and layered, together with the centre, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The Sprig Punch is used to cut out three pieces of Terracotta Tile cardstock and these are adhered to the back of the daisy using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The daisy can then be adhered to the card front.

The sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink onto Whisper White cardstock and trimmed into a rectangle using the Paper Trimmer. The sentiment piece is adhered to the card front such that the left hand side sits under the thread.

Why not dig out your favourite DSP, check the featured colours (don’t forget you can find this information on the back of the pack or in the catalogue) and make your own version of this card. I’d love to see it once you’ve finished!

Daisy Lane – part 3

In the previous two editions of my Daisy Lane Stamp Set Showcase, we have looked at matching sets of projects. Click the links to take a look at part 1 and part 2. This week, we are taking a look at something different: a home décor wall hanger using the coordinating punches. I think its really nice to stretch your papercraft into the realms of gifts and decorations for around the home. Don’t assume that its difficult or complicated because it isn’t; a blank wall hanging is no different from a blank card base or gift box.

Daisies for a friend…

I’ve gone for quite a subtle look but the addition of a few more (or a lot more if you prefer) Daisies would bring a fuller, more opulent look.

The basic heart hanger was bought cheaply from The Range. I have then covered the heart in a piece of Woven Threads DSP. Sanding the edges gives a nice finish and helps to prevent the DSP from peeling up. Sponging ink around the edges of the DSP frames the piece nicely – in this case I have used Terracotta Tile ink.

Daisies have been cut out using the Daisy punch and the Medium Daisy punch in Terracotta Tile, Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Purple Posy. Once these have been adhered together, centres are added using the Clear Faceted Gems. In addition, leaves have been cut out of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Sprig punch and adhered to the back of the Daisies. The flowers are then adhered around the outside of the heart.

The final touch is added with the word ‘friend’ cut out of Pretty Peacock cardstock using the Well Written dies.

I think this would make a lovely, thoughtful gift and it could easily be paired with a matching card and gift tag.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post and will consider adding home décor pieces to your papercraft repertoire.
