Yesterday I shared the first project from my recent workshop using the new set A Good Man. Today I’ll share the second project using the new Daisy Lane Bundle – Daisy Lane stamp set and the Medium Daisy Punch (check out page 23).
One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is receiving our quarterly magazine filled with sample ideas, tips and so much more. In our latest magazine there was a sample using the Daisy Lane Bundle. I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and put my own twist on the design. Resizing the design from a full sized card to a notecard size had a few trials to get everything to fit – but I got there and am pleased with how these turned out.
This card uses one of the new In Colors – Pretty Peacock. It reminds me of Island Indigo which retired last year and I think this is going to become a favourite colour.
To create this card we started with a piece of Shimmery White and then added a watercolour wash using Pretty Peacock ink and an Aqua Painter. NB: Before you lay the colour on make sure you have wet the paper – this helps the ink flow across the card.
Allow time for the paper to dry before stamping the ferns – to speed this up you can use a heat tool to get rid of excess water .
The fern image was stamped in Pretty Peacock. Each card has been stamped slightly differently – the first two cards use the ‘stamped off’ technique. This is where you ink up your image then stamp two images before reinking again creating a lighter version for the second image. The last card has each image stamped at full strength.
After stamping the fern images I adhered a piece of the new 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon with Pretty Peacock edging. You can get this ribbon in all the new In Colors (page 174). The sentiment is stamped in Pretty Peacock on Whisper White cardstock. For two of them I used the Banner Triple Punch (page 186). If you don’t own this punch I would recommend you add it to your next order – it’s a great ‘go to’ punch. It has guides to cut banners to 1″, 1 1/2″ & 2″ (2.5cm, 3.8cm & 5.1cm) wide.
Lastly the centre piece – the daisy. This set has two sizes of daisy and both have a coordinating punch which saves you a heap of time cutting out. I layered two of the smaller daisy on top of each other then adhered to the card. It’s hard to see in the photo but I added a bit of Wink of Stella to match the shimmer in the Shimmery White paper.
I think you’ll be seeing more of this colour in future projects. Do you have a favourite new In Color?
Until next time …
