Good Morning Everyone ~ Can you believe the popularity of Stampin’ Up’s new Daisy Punch?
Yesterday was a crazy day. I had an appointment in the morning. I came home and started working on a project. I stopped for lunch and went back to the project. When the project was completed I set up for my class and then vacuumed. Last night I had my scrapbook class last night. It was a make up from the first of the month. I had ordered paper and it did not come in before the class was scheduled so we made it up last night. We did a July 4th double page spread. Not sure where the day went and what I accomplished besides vacuuming and having my workshop.
I am in love with the Daisy Suite in the new annual catalog. Apparently so is everyone else! The daisy punch was turned off and could not be ordered before the catalog went live as the supply had been depleted. They got a bunch in and now the same thing has happened again! It has also been turned off in the European and Australian markets. I am so glad I order that on the preorder so I had it to play with. I have used it a lot and there are some great ideas out there to use the punch to make a Gerbera daisy. I used the ideas and the colors from Bronwyn Eastly’s suggestions for my daisy today.
I wanted to do the C.A.S.E. the Catty challenge on Facebook again. I chose the picture below as my layout. It is on page 129.
I began with the dotted dsp from the Delightful Daisy paper. I added a piece of Tranquil Tide card stock that I had embossed using the new Polka Dot Basics embossing folder – you can’t tell from the picture as the dots are further away than I thought. Both of these pieces were added to a Whisper White card base. I then took the Eastern Medallions thinlits and cut out the same shape as in the inspiration photo. I added some Tranquil Tide woven ribbon behind the shape and attached to my card base with dimensionals. Now to make my daisy. The Daisy punch was used to punch out 2 of the shapes from Pool Party – it is actually in the dsp along with the Tranquil Tide – and sponged the edges of the petals with the same color ink. Cajun Craze was used to punch two 7/8″ scalloped circles. I used my snips to cut between the scallops all the way around. The pieces were added to the center of the daisy and fluffed. A piece of Peekaboo Peach was punched with the 1/2″ circle punch and attached to the center. I used my bone bolder to curl the petals of the bottom daisy down and the petals of the top daisy up. The daisy was added to the center of the Eastern Medallion with dimensionals. To finish off the daisy I used a medium clear faceted gem in the center. Here is my completed creation C.A.S.E.d from the Catty!
