Daisy Delight in review - Daisy Duo


Today's day 3 of my Daisy Delight review & I'm sharing another fun daisy project with you. This one is mainly thanks to my dear friend, Kellie. She shared a very similar version of this card at our SU team get together in May. I loved the simple, asymmetrical layout & fresh, bold daisy, so I made this almost identical version for my Daisy Delight class in June.


This stamped images are in-colours berry burst, fresh fig, & powder pink ink, plus wild wasabi. Normally, I'd use the same cardstock colours, ie berry burst & powder pink, but we actually used the similar rose red and blushing bride, which work really well too.  How gorgeous are the clear faceted gems too.
The second version is almost the same, except that I've changed up the sentiment, and lightly coloured the daisies with a blender pen & watercolour pencils.


If you're thinking the daisy colours look slightly different, yes they are. The stamped images are both Berry Burst. I used a light touches of Melon Mambo pencil on the left daisy and Rich Razzleberry pencil on the right. Both colours are deep pigments so you need to add very little colour. I normally wouldn't include two colours but thought it's interesting seeing the shade difference.

Here's a side by side comparison of the two cards, that you can pin for later.


Thanks for visiting, today. I'll be back tomorrow with another daisy project or two. Remember you can shop for all the supplies I used from the links below too.

Until then, inky wishes,
Di

Daisy Delight in review - Daisy Friend


Hello there & welcome. Today's daisy card and this post is quick and easy, so you could make a bunch of cards to send some Spring paper love to a friend. I am assured it's coming soon.😊


The combination of marina mist, pool party and powder pink ink makes a soft and pretty daisy background. Each daisy (from Daisy Delight) was stamped twice, offsetting the image to create a full daisy look, then stamped in the centre with the same colour.

To make the friend sentiment, I first cut the friend die (Lovely Words) and largest oval die (Stitched Shapes), together, then cut and adhered another oval to the back. The vellum softened the pattern a little, to help the word pop out more. I also added clear Wink of Stella over the friend shape to add a touch of shine (as usual, hard to see in the pics).


Did you notice the two Glitter Enamel Dots? They add such a lovely, subtle, glittery touch. I love that this pack includes lots of different shades of the main colour, as you can match them up with so many of our SU colours. I used some of the lightest Berry Burst ones here.

See - quick and easy. I hope you'll try this idea. Thanks for visiting today & see you back here tomorrow for another daisy project. See & order the supplies you need below.

Inky wishes,
Di

Daisy Delight In review - Country daisy


The biggest star of the SU Annual Catalogue launch was definitely the Daisy punch & coordinating Daisy Delight stamp set. I thought this pretty & so useful bundle deserved a class all of its own, so back in June that's what I did.

I didn't share the cards then as the punch was on backorder - it outsold any SU punch of the last 5 years in just a couple of weeks - so it seemed a bit mean to share something you couldn't have. Happily, you can order to your hearts delight now, so this week I'll be sharing some daisy magic with you.

Our first class project was this soft, pretty card with a country feel.


The pretty daisies are stamped in so saffron ink on so saffron card using the Daisy Punch (large daisy) & Blossom Builder punch (small daisy).

Each daisy includes 3 punched shapes. I burnished the large daisy with the rounded end of the piercing tool & bone folder to create shape. For the small daisy I lightly stamped with the daisy centre stamp to add some texture to match the large one. Each daisy has a Gold Faceted Gem in the centre. These give such a fab look.


The daisy is matted with the gorgeous, large circle medallion die from the Eastern Medallions set, cut out with the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circles die set, and a pear pizzazz stitched circle. I love the easy yet intricate look this gives.

I layered all the circle elements onto banners & crumb cake piece stamped with the Hardwood background stamp in crumb cake ink.

I made a slightly different version of the card too. The flower was stamped in daffodil delight for a bolder stamp image and I used the stamped flower centre rather than the gems. I also cut out the Eastern Medallions shape, rather than using the scallop circle die, & omitted the wild wasabi layer. Simpler, yes but I like it too.



I kept it very simple on the inside of both cards.


Here are the two versions together so you can compare & pin for later inspiration. Which one do you like more?


I'll be back with some more daisies, so pop back tomorrow. Until then, thanks for stopping by & do check out the Daisy Delight bundle below.

Inky wishes,
Di
