Jar of Daisies - Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight

  At my last class before the annual catalogs were changing over I wanted to highlight a few bundles that would be retiring.  While the parts of the bundles were carrying over there wouldn't be that 10% bundle savings anymore so I wanted to make sure my stampers had another look just in case.

  For this project I used the Daisy Delight stamp set and matching Daisy punch.  I paired it up with Jar of Love and designed this sweet all occasion card.

  The card base is Whisper White thick, then a piece of the Wood Textures DSP.  The jar is stamped in Basic Gray with a very light Pool Party watercolor wash.  You want to make sure not to get the Whisper White too wet or it will pill and bubble.  And you definitely want to make sure to do the watercolor wash and let it dry or use the heat gun before stamping your stems in Old Olive or you'll end up with muddy green water and fuzzy stems.

  The daisies are stamped in Daffodil Delight ink onto the same color paper and punched out and layered.  The flower centers are stamped with Early Espresso onto a piece of scrap Wood Textures DSP.

  A bit of Bermuda Bay ribbon is attached with a staple.  Definitely do the staple before attaching the jar panel to the card front!  No one wants to see the staple showing on the inside of the card. Finally, pop the daisies up with dimensionals.  I did one daisy with one dimensional then I stacked 2 dimensionals for a bit of extra height for the second daisy.

  Hope you didn't miss out on the bundle pricing but if you did at least both the stamp set and punch are still available!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
